I’m not the worst, I’m not the best. So, If your answer/feedback is to tell me to get better then please just save it for some other trolling. Not everyone can spend the kind of time needed to achieve killer stats, not everyone is innately an ace gamer. But everyone deserves to have fun.
I feel as though I know how to support my team and not totally stink up the battle field. That being said, I was just on 6 game losing streak. There was a very high ranking 3 man team just ravaging T3. I mean they are all scoring 2500-3000 EP and the other teams highest score might break 1000…MIGHT. To add insult to injury, every game played against this team ended with being spawn camped by them. Within that time the queues went from averaging a minute or so to averaging three or four minutes. Hmmmm.
I see this ugly paradox happening in the game where high ranking players can’t find matches in T5 so they come troll T3. Newer players get discouraged and leave. Which means fewer players are making it to the higher tiers. Which means there are fewer players for the expert pilots (k/d ratio above 1.0 and rating over 7000… maxed out everything) to compete against. So, they come into T3 and drive their prospective competition from the game… thus creating the paradox.
I also think this paradox is further exacerbated by the algorithm in matchmaking which just lumps all of us together regardless of our skill ratings/stats. But, because of the low player base and long queues this has to be in order for us to avoid the ridiculously long wait times for battle.
I tend to think that if Gaijin changed it so that you were matched according to players stats, (and say within 2 or 3 ranks of each other?) matches would be more balanced. An added bonus might be that players with really high ratings would have massive wait times in lower tiers and be forced to queue up in the higher tiers making high tier queue times less excruciating.
What do you guys think?
