I am not a hardcore player. I am in L2 and I just want to have fun playing the game solo and to win ~50% of the time.

This is not happening at the moment. I am constantly paired against L1 of 2 of 3 ppl premades. Those people have invested a ridiculous amount of time in the game that I dont want and cannot spend. I want to avoid playing against these people. I made an alt account and try to stay in L3 but at some point it is hard and I end up again in the dreaded L2, where the chance that I see those L1 premades is very high.

I guess resetting the leagues may help solve this problem, which has been suggested ad nauseam but nothing is being done. The way it is now, I am playing one or two matches, get stomped by pros and start playing another game.

I know this is another post reflecting the frustration of many, but I felt compelled sharing my feelings as a player.

I know your pain. Your best chance to beat them is by premading as well. And play rocket.

Yeah, I feel you. At times game is fun, but sometimes I get matches where outcome is decided before the droppods have landed.... like 20 times a row. Honestly I have had losing streaks of 20+ matches. I still keep playing, eventually winning and even having 50+% winnings, and soon I am back to the rank I usually am (around 3500), until some losing streak against impossible enemies comes again. :bluecheer:

this game's playerbase is so small that it's not uncommon to fight three people that happen to be steam friends and aren't premading

i mean, there's an ix one trick in america that's constantly in an antifun ix gimmick premade, but besides that all the duos and trios i find don't really synergize well and pick what they feel like playing

The League has nothing to do with the matchmaking. Only your ranking does. If you go from top of L3 to bottom of L2, you won't magically be matched with more L1s

I am sorry to hear your situation.
I'm in your same state. Playing Awesomenauts for some years, with some friends. By dint of playing, I've learned how to be good. :think: But, not that good to overcome a L1 Premade. That's impossible, unless some of them make some stupid errors, more than a time.

I'm in league 2. I always get there, with league reset. And I can't pass in L1 because not all the friends with whom I play are that good. But, it's "fun" the reason I play. Not competition.

The problem, like yours, is that I always end up against premades or people really really good at playing. More than 20 times I've been put against SAM! and his friend (More than 7'000 hours!).
And I always, ALWAYS, lost. Why? Because me and my friend know well ho to play toghether. We have a good synergy. But the third one random player with us, well... No. As simple as that.
There were matches wher we didn't even die a single time. But still, if they attack with a good assembled squad and you simply can't stop their push, the turret goes down. So does the second. And finally the base.

All I can say is that, if you want to join me and my friend, we are still two good players. I'm a Sentry main, he is good with many others. Let me know. Maybe at least you'll be able to play with some people of your level, and maybe against your level too.

"Game balance is the worst it's ever been, I'll only play one or two matches."

First match-up in soloque: Top 15 player in full premade AND he's playing Rocket.

"Time to play another game."
