Sure goldspam is bad… Arty is annoying AF. Maps are not balanced well…. Tanks are imbalanced to hell and back… But there is something unequivocally worse: the matchmaker. Matchmaker is just trash. 15-0 or 15-5 for 95% of games and then 5% are a competition.
Sure, I can just do my best chug on. However, do you really have fun when you know the game is guaranteed a loss? I am not talking about 2 minutes in the game and calling it a GG. I mean 5-8 minutes (because that’s a LONG game now…) of pure stomp and running away. HP disparity is above 20-25% the entire time.
I do not like ranked either for how wonky it is as well.
I simply put want an ELO random matchmaker. ~12k US players may not be enough for fast queues, but I think it would overall be much more enjoyable. Hell, give us a beta test ELO system and let’s see what happens!
