Skilllevel matchmaking


Im playing a silver ladder wtih everyone top 20 being around 5 in skill level. good good 8 (im 4). but the nr 1 in my ladder is skill lvl 8 as the only in this ladder. and as i see, skill lvl 8’s is master rank +. how come he compete in silver?


If tournament max level is 5 that means its average level 5. If all 5 players together has average level 5 than all of them can play no matter what even lvl8. Some of them needs to be lower than lvl5 to get lvl8 player in.
