Unfair matching


#1

we got matched up against a level 10 with 5k hrs (we are all level 4)
he carried with 35 frags, his mates were shit.
tilt because of the shit and unfair ranking system.

Hey @110112110.

As far as I know, the matchmaker tries to create balanced matches based on average team ELO. I have tried to find out average team ELO of your team and average team ELO of your opponents prior to that match.

Unless I have calculated it wrong or picked the wrong numbers, it seems that your team had a slightly higher average team ELO (1234,4 vs 1226,6).

A lot of games I play seem to have an unfair rank distribution, for instance just now I got 7,4,1,1,3 and 2,3,3,3,1.

Would seem like it’s easy to write an algorithm that distributes fairly across two teams, maybe if there’s 2 yellow or reds and 8 green or whites split them up :slight_smile:

Reminds me a lot of Valve MM where many times a team of silvers will get matched with a team of mgs… hmm.

UPDATE:
as of today two games were of similar distribution ie: 8,7,3,2,2 vs 4,3,2,2,1
