I am probably a mediocre player. Your comments about the que, matchmaking and higher level players having a "bad game" is echoed throughout the forums. I guess I will stay casual in normal.
    The problem is that the game doesn't end at level 30. It just begins.

    After I hit level 30 I played an additional ~300 conquest games.

    Still got wrecked in Leagues.

    So. The problem is not perfection, it's that the qualifier system is broken. Smite.guru statistics show that the team with fewer qualifiers wins 65% of the time.

    So I need to have 500-600 games under my belt before trying leagues then?

    I recommend 300 at the bare minimum.

    Edit: I won't make you do what I didn't, but 500 is a much more comfortable number, unless you're wrecking in every casual you play.

    When you are the only one on your team buying beads against an Ares, I'm sure you could use the MM excuse

    Currently there must be at least 1 new MM thread a day, it could almost have it's own forum heading.

    Matchmaking is bad that's obvious but I doubt it will be fixed or improved upon anytime soon.

    There's a lot of ways of making matchmaking more balanced but nearly all of them would require longer que times and most players are not prepared to wait. At off peak times those que times would then double or triple due to lack of players or they would have to resort to putting good and bad players together again anyway and so complaints would still in ensue.

    Personally I'd like quality games over quantity but I'm probably in the minority.

    Then I will have to stick with the 500-600 number. Again, I am probably a mediocre player.
