    Matchmaking is fair and balanced

    https://imgur.com/a/3lhom

    Not trying to flame anyone or clan, but can we please address this issue? Just got placed against a 5 man clan stack in arena. They admitted they were using voice chat, and team I was on was a bunch of solo q.
    This has happened 3 times in the past week alone.

    Ideally clan stacks face clan stacks/party of 5, but apparently that's not the case as of the recent patches.

    Anyone else experiencing this issue. It's getting pretty irritating.


    Also, any "just join a party dude" posts will be ignored. Joining a party won't fix that this is happening to solo q.

    the main problem is Smite's pool of players

    be they active and playing at the moment, or inactive (taking a break for other games, just straight done, etc)

    I don't remember seeing anything in the patch notes saying they were going to try and match teams against teams

    because i'm not sure they can viably do that

    queue time for matches can vary depending on the time of day, day of the week and the game mode in question

    if they were to attempt to make it so a team could only face another team

    the queue times for those people could very well be ridiculous

    the solo queued people could also very well see a time increase on how long they need to wait for a match

    given that the majority of people who play the game are casual players

    casual gamers don't generally have a great deal of free time on their hands

    I agree, solo players shouldnt be match-up against players in party, its huge disadvantage from start.

    Like, I get that, but that should just be assumed and kinda be like "well, if you're going to be going in a 5 man party, expect a long q time so it's fair for others".
    Personally, I'd be fine with it being 4 man and a solo vs a 5man stack, but it's not anywhere near fair for it to be 5 man (who most of the time are using 3rd party voice chat compared to the hardly ever used in game voice chat) to face a bunch of solo q.

    It's just not right.
