@Lyte please look at this. What just happened?

  • One team:

    932 wins
    292 wins
    147 wins
    171 wins
    393 wins

    The other team

    1063
    1117
    821
    879
    1287


    Something like this isn't supposed to happen, right? The difference in experience is INSANE.

    Even if the new matchmaking system never existed... a match like this is NEVER going to be a balanced match!
  • There's no such thing as a perfect matchmaking system.

    A strong matchmaking system tends to output games that on average tend to be pretty darn good. However, this doesn't mean that it's impossible for bad matches to be made. Even in the best matchmaking systems, about 2% of games might still be lopsided with a large Elo or Win differential.
