I’m an arena dropper. I’m sorry that I’m not sorry about it. It’s selfish. Still, not sorry.
How did arena dropping become a thing with me? I got tired of losses.
Get gud, you might say, and you won’t lose so much. Or, you were too high for your team, it’s just gong to take you settling out to your natural level where you’ll win as many as you lose.
Well, I didn’t start playing yesterday. I’ve reached my normal level…so that clearly isn’t it. Compressing the ranks is a cause, but we know when that happens and grudgingly accept our fate.
I believe matchmaking is the cause of arena droppers. Funny that they changed matchmaking because of arena droppers in the first place.
Matchmaking needs to be 100% trophy based. Nothing to do with team strength.
The issue with team strength, and I said it way back when people demanded team strength based matchmaking, is that you get various levels or “leagues” if you will, at the same trophy range.
I’ve noticed, and it’s very evident if you arena drop, there are different levels of teams at the same trophy range. If I have my all unique team in upper Aviary, I’m facing mostly all unique teams. If I switch to level 15 all commons…I’m facing level 20 legendary teams that are in upper Aviary.
What’s the problem, you ask?
It’s the exact scenario a few of us warned about.
You could theoretically be very high ranked with a low level team, never seeing higher level teams at the same trophy level, only being matched with lower leveled teams at high trophy counts.
I believe this is exactly why we aren’t facing equal strength teams, we go from being crushed to getting crushed.
I’m sick of this matchmaking.
I want it 100% trophy based, that’s the only way your team will find it’s natural level.
By the way, it’s fun giving all legendary teams that I would never see with my all unique team a difficult time with my all common level 15 team.
There are different “leagues” if you will, at the same trophy count. These other “leagues” are invisible to you unless you change your team strength.
That’s just not right.
