so for the past two weeks matchmaking has been very different. It seems that a majority of the matches were heavily uneven. This post is about the system's inability to find "fair games" and whether anything is being done to fix it. I am going to define "fair" as a game that consists of similarly ranked players on both red and blue team. i.e. team blue: 4 diamonds & team red : 4 diamonds.
Before I continue let me share some information: I am currently a diamond 4, I have my search preference set to Balanced, and I solo queue (yes I understand it is disadvantageous to solo queue when playing team matches but thats besides the point).
I have matched against champion level players in a lot of my recent games (but i havnt matched with champions). I'm not disgruntled that I am playing against champion level players... What bothers me is the fact that I wasnt matched with the same caliber of player on my team.
Here are some examples from the last two weeks (im on the losing side for all of these matches):
three champions and one onyx vs. three diamonds and one onyx... score 50-21
two champions, one onyx, and one unranked vs. one diamond and three unranked... score 50-21
two champions, one onyx, and one unranked vs. a diamond, a platinum....., and two unranked... score 50-22
two champions, an onyx, and one unranked vs. one onyx, and three diamonds... score 50-21
three onyx, and one champion vs. four diamonds... score 50-30
two champions, one onyx, and one diamond vs. one onyx, and three diamonds... score 50-20
two champions, one onyx, and one diamond vs. one onyx, two diamonds, and one unranked... score 50-26
one champion, two diamonds, and an unranked vs. two diamonds, and two unranked... score 50-35
Whats weird is that I had a 52% win percentage, in slayer specifically, and I've dropped down to 43.0% in less than one month. I always solo queue so it's not like anyone was previously carrying me...I just want to know what has changed or what will change...
