Just another guy complaining about overwatch and the nature of PvP gaming in here so just move along if you don’t want to waste your time, but I still think it’s a problem.
From the past week, I’ve developed some kind of a ritual on how good my games are for the day: 1) Play 2-3 games, 2) See how much matchmaking and the holy court of RNG likes me today. I take this as optimistic and hopeful as I possibly freaking can, and after the past seven days, I’ve been overwhelmingly let down on five of them.
To clarify a bit, I am not one of those people that likes a game where our team stomps the enemy team, I just feel bad and dissatisfied on how unfair the game is. Although despite this, I’ve only had those kinds of games on the good days, about fifteen games in(I haven’t gotten one during the “judging” phase).
However, today I got the dumbest games yet.
I’m in silver. The game tells me that and climbing is nonexistent and more luck based than skill based so I’m silver. Today I got matched (arcade) with a Diamond in the first game and a Plat in the second, and they single-handedly carried the enemy team (aka stomping our team to the point of spawncamp) in both games. No one on my team in either games were above gold. That is broken.
I really want to understand the matchmaking system, not to trash on it, but just to have a reason I can tell myself. I don’t want to leave these games thinking “the system is so dumb,” I want to tell myself that it was just freak luck.
Edit: I edited out the bad words, for some reason I thought they didn’t enforce that here…
