Did you win?
yeah! he is a bad guy!
that’s not my fault. The matching system is wrong
What’s interesting to me is the population of players you get matched against in the Underdark League, of which we both are currently members of. (Ending with a preposition like a boss.)
When I match vs a player without the bot prompt, it’s usually within 200 trophies, which seems normal to me.
Then when I wait for a player, I’d say about 75% are >3,500 trophies and 25% are under. This distribution would surprise me if I were expecting unbiased matchmaking.
Without bias, we expect a pyramid distribution, with higher numbers of players at lower trophy counts and fewer with higher. Indeed this is what we saw with the 2.4.18 when everyone in Arena level 7 was matched up against each other.
Therefore, matchmaking, for the Underdark League at least, preferentially selects players from the higher three leagues.
I guess welcome to the butt-monkey league of the new matchmaking algorithm.
I got airborne yesterday when waiting too. Couldn’t even dent any of his characters
