I haven’t been on the Forums since CTT, but I have played a lot since then: CTT, then BETA, and now full release.
What I will tell you, from my experience at least, is that match making on PS4 is getting better – much better in fact.
Back in CTT, I could absolutely guarantee that when I saw people with higher command rank or pre-made teams in Meltdown, that we would get curb stomped. These days (up to and including last night), I’m seeing much, much closer games all around.
I think a part of the problem (for now) is that ELO/Skill-based match making doesn’t have a lot of data to work with at the moment. There is no way for matchmaking to know that I have 30-40 hours of Thorn play under my belt, all it can see is the games I’ve played since release.
This is the same for everyone who has been with this game for a while.
It’s not perfect and I can’t speak at all for what it’s like on the PC, but I have had a least five games in the last three days that have been within 15-30 minions. This would absolutely never have happened in CTT/BETA.
I say all this not to convince you that you’re wrong, but to say that you should give it a bit of time. There might not be a clear, cut and dry solution to match making that they can make, until they collect a bit more data.
Hope you’re having a great day.
