I am not talking about changing matchmaking. I am talking about changing the current system that allows you to group with players up to 1000SR above or below you. Changing that would not affect queues at all, as you’d still have the exact same players in the queue, they’d just end up, quite correctly, in different games from each other.
The matchmaker would still be free to match in the way it currently does.
Ok, this is going off the rails. It all boils down to the point of people literally having ZERO CLUE about how the MMR system works.
You … do know that the game doesnt have super powers or a crystal ball to know a level 25 account belongs to a T500, right OP?
Please add context and also read this guys:
I’d actually argue there is very little difference, as it’s so easy to smurf, intentionally derank, and boost friends in this game SR means very little these days. The entire system is broken beyond a point an automated match making system could ever reliably find equal matches.
Gosh forums i alone know 10 players who play in high diamond, masters and 1 or 2 in gm who regularly smurf in plat/diamond. In some cases they play 50% of their matches with friends in elos way under their real skill. These matches dont feel like plat or diamond, they are way harder and faster. So i guess the opposite team has the same mmr constellation as we have… The only thing you can do is hoping that you are not pooled as filler into these matches. These are the games where you feel totally helpless and overwhelmed. It is a terrible gaming experience.
