    Ranked matchmaking is broken

    Queued up in rank. I am no expert at the game just being in Gold 4. Get placed against a full premade of master players and we have 1 platinum player, myself in gold, and then it also gives us a bronze player.

    What even is this matchmaking? Picture below as proof... Broken system.

    its the queue system smite has in place

    the system works roughly like this

    You queue up for a match

    The system searches for players within your rank range with some minor variances

    After set amount of time (let's just say 10s for the sake of this example) if not enough people are found for the match with the above criteria it widens the search

    Search continues with broadened net, allowing for greater range in rank difference

    This repeats until enough players are found for your match

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

    Very correct.

    You queue.
    Smite searches for player of your level for 1 nano second (basically one try)
    then, if it can not find 9 other players of your level, it searches for players within 10000 levels of you
    teams form, one side face rolls the other.

    idk the new ranked system is kinda broken. I got placed in platinum for winning my 3 first games in ranked and would end up in diamond if i had won 3 more games in a row. Bet I could get to grandmaster in 10 games with this new rank system. So it seems rank doesnt matter. Like when everyone got placed in Plat and Diamond that one season.

    Yeah ranked needs to have a better prerequisite. I wish rank had a prerequisite that your char has to be level 5 at least.

    Ranked MM and how your actual rank is determined is so stupid. If you wanna work for hirez you cannot have an IQ over 70, because god forbid someone actual put a decent ranking system in place.
