    Matchmaking is legit broken, please evaluate what is making it this awful

    http://smite.guru/match/pc/366698916

    Bronze 1 with plat 1, after 2 minutes q time, i get bronze fukcing 1....
    really?

    note that this was immediately after ranked servers were down. So it is physically impossible! for the bronze 1 guy to have queued longer than 5 minutes at that point in time.

    Please find out what went wrong here and fix it.

    EDIT: I genuinely believe that there was a point in smites history when matchmaking was okay. Unfortunately i have recently experienced unbelievably atrocious matchmaking in both ranked and casual. I am not sure if or when the last time was that changes were made to the MM system.

    But PLEASE carefully reevaluate what is happening with the matchmaking and CONSIDER rolling back all changes that were made within the last 10 months.

    Thank you.

    actually it isn't impossible.

    you have to remember that the system takes into account two major factors.

    queue time and who is in the queue.

    obviously the system will first prioritize finding people within your range first before expanding out to include more varying ranks.

    but since you said the was after a server went down...more than likely the amount of people going into ranked dropped...so the system had less people to pull from than what it might normally have...thus allowing for such a difference.

    also if they undid any mm stuff from the last 10 months, that could very well make things worse or...even unplayable

    If it works in your favor, don't question it.

    I know it mainly focuses queue time. but obviously if there aren't many people in the queue for something it might just pull who it can to fill the slots. I can't say for certain...it is a theory until hi-rez states otherwise
