I know that everyone has complained about the matchmaking system for a couple of years. It is easy to become tone-deaf to the complaints because you hear them so often. You start to wonder if everyone simply likes to complain or are bad sports.
But… having said that, I really want Ludia to explain to all of us how I can get 19 matches in a row in Arena (no Tournament) where I don’t get a SINGLE opponent that has a trophy count that is lower than me. Every match! In fact, 15 of the opponents I was matched against had a score higher than my best ever since the season began. One of them was more than 400 points higher than me at the time I played him.
How does that happen in a fair and balanced system? I did not get even ONE opponent that had a score lower than me. I really want to know, Ludia. Don’t say “just bad luck” or “random happenings”. This is my experience day in and day out and has been for months. I would estimate that over 90% of my arena matchups in the last year have been with opponents that had a higher current score than me. I cannot remember when I’ve had more than two matches in a row EVER where I’ve played someone with a score less than mine.
