    Ever since Xbox joined PC, matchmaking has been worse

    I have to be honest here. Based on my findings since the two have joined, Xbox players generally bring the game down.

    Often they are the worse players on the team. I tend to look at my matches after on Smite guru to see if they were a pre made and what system they play on and more times than not, the Xbox players were the weak spot on the team.

    Of course, this isn't always true but for the most part it is.

    Also, the current algorithm isn't working for casuals. Adding a 1500 elo and a 1900 elo to get a 1700 average is not the same as two 1700 players on the other team. The 1500 often builds wrong, feeds and can't hold up their end.

    And for the love of God, stop putting randoms vs teams waiting on a que. That's lazy matchmaking. Never should a team of 3 and 2 or 5 man be matched against 5 randoms.

    Thoughts?
    HirezAmanda is ridiculous.

    I can finally agree on that. Been binging on soloq clash and arena for the BP and frankly put it's been a literal hell and it doesn't help that Olorun is instapicked meaning automatic 4v5.

    However I tried crossplay off and I had an actual match or two for once which was okay. Needs further testing though.

    The issue with parties is that depending on the amount of people actually queued up there isn't always going to be an immediate party also the same size or less able to be queued. There's nothing lazy especially when parties run into the issue and are constantly placed at high priority. Would you rather a party wait and be turned away over 5 consecutive times in a row?
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Since forums are dying, feel free to join the official smite forum discord where most retired members chill.

    I just feel like if I am in a solo Q, it should find 9 other players to match me with. I'm sure there are 9 other people waiting within that 5 minute window.

    I don't mind being brought in as the 5th guy in a 4 man squad.

    Just no 5 man, 4 man, 2 and 3 man's vs randos. It makes a huge difference.

    My buddy and I rolled together last year and we went on an almost 30 game win streak. That never would have happened in a solo Q.

    Well TBH some of the issues brought by Crossplay did exist last year mainly in Arena and Conquest so not all of it is Console.

    I did turn Crossplay off in the past 2 weeks, it provided some improvement but does not fix other issues, as an example I can find people with triple digit account levels building horribly such as Hunters with first item Crit and so many others, gah.

    I do believe what I heard casters say last year even during League matches, console players do objectives less often.

    The deathballing does not help, neither did the infusion of PC players who seem to fit more of a Battlerite playstyle.
