Is opponent's rank based on your highest ranked team dino?


Is opponent’s rank based on your highest ranked team dino? I have all level 2 and 3 dinos, and then two level 5s in my 8 team slots. My battles lately are very difficult, and I’m wondering if it’s because my two level 5 DINOS are causing me to be matched with opponents that have more level 4 or 5? Or does the opponent matching algorithm somehow average out the levels when matching? Just want to know if I should remove my level 5s until the rest are up there.


My dinos currently max at lvl 3 & I’m being paired up with 6/7’s and it’s impossible to win.
Not sure if more people need to play to widen the field or if there’s a dodgy algorithm at work


Nope, I don’t think so just pure on luck imo as I have level 6, 7 and 8’s plus in the team and I sometimes get level 3-6 dinosaurs
