    Default How is this matchmaking?

    Does trion just start randomly placing people on teams after a pm is in it? I am constantly finding myself against a really imbalanced match. If I were not there this would have been done...over...How is this matchmaking.

    http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/f...-03_171240.jpg

    Is this ELO based? and that is the reason I find myself up against things like this trying hard to carry a team? Trion thinks a few soloist can become gods and take on a superior team alone?

    I would like to have an in dept explanation of how match making is working...

    Would a DEV please post in dept how the matchmaking process works?

    I mean, you're also playing marksman. *Tab, pew! Killing blow achieved.* Look at the pyro below you, close to the same damage as you and yet like no KB's. KB's are nothing when you have Marksmans running around.

    Some warfronts I do upwards of 6 million damage and I have like 5 kills (Because Ethereal beam didn't get interrupted, knocked back, pulled, and it also crit, ikr what luck?) and then I look at the end score board and boom, Marksman with like 50-60kb's.

    In this map it is also more then likely that due to the red team controlling the middle, the 3 top damagers were probably camping the middle waiting for anyone to appear on their map. They could also just have better gear/better skill, but doubtfull.

    This seems decently even, 41-51 and a relatively close game, this certainly isn't the worst I've seen.


    People weren't that far from your damage done, more or less probably Kb sniped. Idk, that match seems fine

    So while you were killing players, your team was holding objectives and scoring points.

    It looks like you defended one point the entire match. So your team contributed, just not in the same way as you. This is extremely far from a lopsided match.

    ...cause killing nobody wins the game

    A duo is by no means a premade but Elo is a factor here for who is matched against the duo.

    Well it is possible to win without killing anyone. If you look, your team killed plenty of people. And managed to capture plenty of points in the process.

    the point is, the matchmaking system puts everything on a few or sole person. If I wasnt there it would have been a serious lopside. It shouldnt be like that...why should one person have to side on the losing team all the time and expected to basically carry.

    So how does one stack a team like this vs...that? Take me out of the picture and compare; how is that matchmaking?

    Take you out of the picture and the difference would be significant since the same people wouldn't even be in there.

    The matchmaker looks at players queued, and tries to make as balanced a match as possible based on their prior records. It then puts a match together and kicks it off. The team that tries hardest usually wins.
