I know MM isn’t perfect and has to compensate for the lack of players sometimes. But last/this night it went too far.
I queued with a friend (2man squad) with ship no higher than rank6 each had 3 ships. I had SR just below 1200 and his was around 1060 or so .
1st match (were queued in Queue 29) was against 4 man squad from Nerds we had on our side a 3 man squad (maybe there was a forth not from the same corp couldn’t tell).
Nerds were all around SR 1200+ , the 3man squad on our team was SR 1000+
We lost as expected.
2nd match (were queued in Queue 29) the same Nerds squad on the other team, on our team I couldn’t tell if there was a 3man squad or higher at least they didn’t play cohesive and didn’t stick together well and most players on our team were below SR 1100.
We lost as expected.
We waited several minutes in the hope not to get matched the same way but here it comes:
3rd match (were queued in Queue 28!) the same Nerds squad on the other team, on our team the same thing players not that high in SR and maybe not even a 4man squad + weak team play = loss
Pointless! This was more than frustrating this is pissing me off. I don’t mind losing but this predictable epic failure and 3 times in a row is just beyond broken MM. We had around 1000 players online the queue didn’t look that small/empty. I know for sure the 3rd match was not supposed to be matched with the Nerds squad winning at least 3 times in a row where they would have been put up one queue higher and we were one queue lower when we first encountered them. I had better MM’s with less players online in the past.
Oh I almost forgot. On top of that in the 2nd match I tried to use the gates to jump to the middle not just once, or twice but FIVE F… TIMES and didn’t warp me, it must have looks funny me circling through/around the gate like an idiot. We were on a Russian server, ping was 260ms and had some lag (but no packet loss).
I don’t blame anyone but MM for these lost matches. I don’t have anything against Nerds and it’s certainly not their fault.
I played in a 4 man squad a week ago with players that had SR better than me but also in T2, after every 3 wins we got one queue higher so we went from Queue 29 to 35.
Attached the Game log, time is US-PST (GMT -8). If you need other logs etc. let me know.
