I agree it isn't ideal but it's not necessarily wrong of the MM to do this. A solution could be to lessen the ping factors in high rating games but I imagine this will frustrate about as many people as it pleases.

Is having manageable pings on both teams not the sole aim of the new matchmaking?

If we were to do away with it, would we have made no progress from the old system?


It's one aim not the sole aim. That idea wouldn't throw it out but scale back how much the system cares about ping for high rating matches.

Just want to make it clear that I think it's a bad idea, it was just a possible solution to the case provided by potterman.

Also just want to add that that game does have pretty good matchmaking as far as the rating goes. Average ratings are (reasonably) balanced and all the players in that game are within 3k rating when it is putting them together (Any rating above 18k gets capped at 18k when putting 6 players together).

What were the other aims?

I am not being funny; I genuinely cannot remember being told anything aside from "it should prioritise ping". I thought it was doing a pretty good job of that at one point, too (until it apparently started to think Australia did not exist).

Balancing ping, rating, premades vs premades and avoiding the issues that the first come first served system had.

These are the ones that immediately come to mind.

I recall there also being a factor to try and avoid playing with the same people consecutively.

something is wrong when you got the most fun out of this game 5 years ago and nowadays it has even less players to make a good match without bots

idk about the norm, but I typically enjoy things more when they're new, as well. And not five+ years old, where I know the ins-and-outs, the pros and cons, have nothing new to discover, etc.

Not trying to totally downplay your complaints, but yeah
