    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.

    This is what I understand:
    We dont want to let 4-5 premades to wait long time in queue so lets just let them destroy solo-q in 15min.

    Sounds legit.

    LOL.
    I agree with you, it's not right.
    Moreover, a lot of time, when Im in queue with 2 of my friend, in Arena, I have to wait 4.10 minutes to find a match, and more often than not, the match is pretty unblalance, like we are 3+1+1 vs 4+1 or 5 premade, or the opposite , we are 3+2 vs 5 man in solo; either way, it seems like matchmaking can't prepare a balance match for everyone, at least, the 80% of the time.
    if matters Im on Ps4..
    I won likely the 55-60% of my game in this entire season, so, Im not try to complain, it's just unfair for those who solo queue and get destroyed for that.

    Smite matchmaking is the worst pile of shit excuse ive seen for balance matchmaking. This game seriously fucking sucks dick at matchmaking. Idc if its small player pool. Which btw you can prolly blame on how unbalanced matchmaking and this game is in general for that. Id rather wait 10 minutes for a good match some put against plat players or not having fucking noobs on my team who decide to pick 3 assassins for fucking conquest!

    Just played four games of Joust, two of which my team got completely steamrolled. One game, it was 3 minutes in and we had already been deicided four times. Had to sit through 10 minutes of hell, and the game ended up 50-something to 4. Matchmaking cannot be fine if im getting multiple matches like that. Im constantly getting paired with feeders and noob who dont know what theyre doing. Hi-Rez needs to stop balancing and focus on the real issues
