Pikel Silverhand Trial - Unbalanced Matchmaking?

Hey all. I just hit Renown 15 and picked up Pikel simultaneously. I started to delve into the Pikel Silverhand trial, but every opponent I face has characters level 14-16 that I cannot dent with my team of 9-10s. I’m at arena level 6, and my arena opponents are level appropriate. What matchmaking system do the Silverhand Trials use? I haven’t had a single win, 7+ opponents, all severely overleveled.

Yeah that the norm for this game!
