So I've been helping my friends to learn to play and I've always been in the only/champion level of gameplay and place there consistantly while they are platinum players. I get matched with people who have created Smurf accounts (new accounts with no mmr score) because they don't want to play fair at their level. I've been a committed player since the early days of Halo wars 1 for 360 back in '09. This is honestly driving me crazy is there anything that can be done about it?
TBH it's hard to just stop surfing, skill-based matchmaking is an option but with the low player count of this game smurfing is actually quite effective. Smurfs are usually present in any popular game but its just because of the low player count of this game that it is more apparent.
