Yeah that wasn't my question. I'm asking from an MMR perspective why this match happened. I know for a fact that most of the opposing team should have MMRs in the 3+ range. the losing team didn't seem to match that at all. So I'm asking what happened?
Josh, here's the first game I've seen under these new MM parameters that made me scratch my head. https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians/xbox-one/mode/warzone/matches/291a5aa8-8ec1-40a4-aad6-591c0094d4e9/players/jaypops20?gameHistoryMatchIndex=0&gameHistoryGameModeFilter=AllIf you look at both teams it was just a quick core. Nobody was really slaying. I think that was just a series of bad circumstances that may have had something to do with quitters. We have had a lot of games like that when the restrictions were in place. While those games a frustrating, it doesn’t look to me like the other team was interested in prolonging the game and trying too hard. They just had favorable circumstances.
I was watching my buddy play (he's probably got an OK MMR but nothing crazy), and he matched against a team of known uber-sweats (at least 8, maybe 12). He had nobody great on his team, looked like mostly randoms. How did this match happen?
Sorry I misunderstood. I looked again at the game, and just my opinion would be that the players that quit out on him were very high ranked. It could be that it based the match off of their higher rank, and unfortunately when they quit out and it destroyed your friends chances of A competitive match.
It’s unfortunate that some people will quit out of a match just because it doesn’t go their way in the first 30 seconds.
I really have no knowledge or basis for my thought, it just looks to me like that’s what happened. Like I said the quitters were pretty high ranked. Their MMR probably balanced with your friends and should have had a competitive game.
