    How do you expect this community to be friendly?

    Alright.

    This game is balanced around Conquest. Almost all 30 levels say that.

    This is my personal experience (playing as Hades): http://smite.guru/censor/match/hr/13831

    First of all, I would like to ask question number one: why am I being matched among low Elo players?

    Second question: because of my "high elo" I was expected to have roles called at least, but nope. Prove included: http://i.imgur.com/rcYJe3v.png

    Thirdly, team start: I have no idea what happened there: http://i.imgur.com/EC7WM1i.png Neith jungler? Ares on solo lane with solo Tyr? After I have asked Ares politely to switch lanes and help Hou, he replied with "fuck you, russie" and left the game on purpose.

    Forthly, after some more time and amazing feeding our Hou Yu was afking at base, shooting his arrows at our Ares and running around him. Then he has left the game: Prove of his leaving included here: http://i.imgur.com/ll7ArBj.png

    After the game finishes, I got my godwill to 0, because I asked in post match lobby to report Hou and Ares for leaving on purpose. I didn't even touch Neith. And both teams have decided to report me, because I sucked all game long. Unfortunately, i don't have any screen of that because once I got that answer, that made me "crush my computer" completely. I mean I just stopped Smite process and closed the game because I still don't understand that logic.

    Then, one more question: even if both team of similar Elo (not including me), why their team knows which items to get (or close to perfect items) and my team is like Neith and Hou.

    And the last one question: if this everything is balanced around Conquest, why enemy team does have 2 premades and we have all solo queued.

    Now I am waiting for my ban because I did nothing wrong, but some trolls have reported me, and knowing Hi-Rez reputation around banning, I wouldn't even wonder if it's me who gets banned, not leavers and feeders.

    Thank you for reading.

    The smite guru score isn't your elo at all. It's a false representation. Also, you're not even level 30, so you can't expect everyone in your game to know how to play or build properly.

    Alright, if not Elo, then I have other unanswered questions.

    That's because it's not. Like IrishPotato just said.

    It might not be the actual ELO/MMR, but it is still a decent estimate of yoru performance - so you know that, if the MMR calculations are reasonable, the proportions would still be close enough. Unless we have yet another problem in which the MMR is even worse than a third part evaluation of your performance.... No wonder HR hid it, and with this kind of comment you're just fueling criticism against it But do go on.

    OP, no offense, but you're not even Level 30 yet. SmiteGuru score is an "approximate" ELO, not really ELO but a decent estimation of skill. However, below Level 30, ELO really doesn't matter, I think the system just matches "approximate" account levels together below level 30. Just wait until you hit Level 30 and then get matched with a solo queue Level 10 because the MM system thinks that's "fair".

    OP, this happens across the board and really doesn't have anything to do with ELO. People are jerks and throw games purposely. I've been in games with people who have 2000+ smite.guru scores, 30lvl and high mastery levels just throw games and troll games. It's just human nature to cause misery to the innocent for fun.

    It happens, it happens a lot... and it sucks but you just have to report them and move on. In extreme cases, I just send video and screenshots and hope for the best.

    I had a partied up Ravana and Guan you who trolled together all match. Both had at least 5 diamonds both were higher ranked. They troll built, stole buff camps from the other 3 players. Spammed VGS and anything they could to be annoying. Why? Absolutely no reason. They both got what roles they called, there were no issues whatsoever prior to match or at the beginning. They legit just trolled as soon as the match started and then our solo laner got pissed and left so it was me and ADC and we couldn't even surrender because they would both vote no so basically, we were forced to endure it until they thought we had enough of it. If we were to leave, we would of been penalized. At the end they tried to get the enemy to report us for trolling and until they saw their builds, it probably would of worked.
