    Man, they weren't kidding about your terabytes of screenshots.

    Either way, matchmaking is worse now than it was in Storm Legion is what most people reference when they make those claims. Not a lot are still here from pre-SL/F2P days from when it was faction v faction as well as region battlegroups.

    I would love to have access to the super secret archive of Techfalll screenshots. I'd be like a kid in a Colorado pot shop.

    The main thing that's wrong is players refusing to switch specs as needed. The matchmaking could be improved but then the wait times would drastically increase as well.

    Can anyone explain this thread to me ? Maybe I`m missing some US shards nuances.

    What do those screens prove exactly ? I can post similar ones from 50 lvl.

    Does that mean that current matchmaking is not broken ?

    Big difference from Vanilla was faction restrictions and clusters. This alone created unbalance at specific times.

    Also you macroing follow ups and builders in vanilla is triggering me.

    Did u photoshop a few?

    There'S a scion where Favor dont really match

    Your last image, shows u at 9-0 with 1k damage done....

    Thats the 2 that jumped out of my face, i did'nt look at them that much =o

    Should I?

    On a side note, Matchmaking is pretty right on, Currently in the 3400 Elo's bracket, and i get tough matchups, but still manage to pull wins , I've seen in the last weeks, so extremely tight matches/finishes, Ninja ties, Clutch last second wins, Etc =o

    Love, Exxy <3

    I got good scoreboards in Rift but, it just isn't something I can take very very honest pride in. We all know deep down, well any PvP knows deep down, getting a high score in a WF is a joke. All you need is a half decent team and be fluent in your spec. And you will get plenty of games where you mash out the scoreboard. Whoopie. I did it a billion times as did countless other players.

    I think you are looking at the screenshots wrong. In the last image, he did 36,556 damage to get the nine kills. The 1k you are referring to is not the damage done but the Favor earned. The Favor column is between times killed and damage done. It is not the last column as we have now. I think that might also clear up the misunderstanding of the Favor in the scion match.

    Seen a couple (or close to it) in the last week /shrug. Off hours (Aussie times) things seem to get more imbalanced. This is why I try to PvP in my mornings which corresponds to US evenings. A decent 5 person PM in Aussie times could win just about every match.
