There's like, 150 ish people in league 1, because some are alts. Most get a spot and don't play.
There's no other people for them to play against, and you probably had decent teammates.

More like there are only 200-300 players left at average. So you will get more and more crazy matchups as the number will keep decreasing.
The only thing you can do is just dealing with it. Besides you won't lose rating at all by losing to some rank 14 guy. As for the winrate - welp, you have to play with a coordinated team all the time to get a good number there, unless you have some insane skills (and I assume you don't if someone from top 20 annoys you so much).


Like I get one known rank 4+5+someone team very frequently. I got used to it but when it happens in my first match of the day it's really depressing.

Most are alts or inactive accounts with less than 100 games the entire season (look at the top 3 players this season, as well as 50% of the top 25 having less than 100 games). Due to this severe inactivity and lack of rating decay rate (which would encourage playing), the game has to take any L1 player and give them a base rating; that is, a rank 1 would "appear" the same as a rank 250 in matchmaking for all intents and purposes, or something akin to that.

That being said, you won't lose much rating at all if you fight these people; their actual (and not spoofed) rating is used for win / loss calculations rather than the matchmaking one.

The matchmaking can also spot at least some alt accounts? I have faced godlike rank 10000+ players who have no other games than Awesomenauts, but losing to them only gave me -2.0 ranks or similar.

Not frustrated about this, just an observation. :ix:

Faced the same thing a couple of times. Losing to 100% winrate league 5 dudes counts as if losing to top 50s.

Frustrating thing though is the last match yesterday. Ran into my "favorite" stallduo but also got decent dudes as teammates and didn't want to spoil the match because of them. 40 minutes for a loss. Didn't expect to win or anything since their third was better than me but I feel like 40 minutes of my life were stolen (considering facing them 3rd time that evening). Stalling is for pussies who are afraid to lose :table:

Got Gen chat Banned for saying a total of maybe 3 harmless lines due to over excessive reports I guess? but that doesn't apply to real toxic people who actually throw games and talk garbage all day and get noting.

Still getting a bit salty about people with boring gameplay styles. There are quite a few who don't even change their nauts not to mention the strats or builds. Yes, they're good at what they do but it feels like playing against "very_hard" AI instead of being in an online match.

Well, everyone plays how they like to play. But I also wonder at times when see some people who 100% of the time pick the same 1 and only 1 naut and play with same strategy forever and ever. It`s their choice and allowed to do so, but facing those feels like facing a Level Boss of a single player game lol. I too use 4 nauts for 90% of my matches, so I get the concept of liking to play as your "mains" but playing only Rae?...shrugs...

If matchmaking (=playerbase) actually gave matches with equal level opponents, Id like to play so many other nauts too, but since we now face opponents way higher than our skills in many matches, we are kinda stuck into using stronger nauts just to have even a slight chance. And then its annoying when the enemies happen to be lot weaker, and it would have been fun to use less used nauts, and not pubstomp with mains. :facepalm:

This is genuinely the worst I've seen anyone perform in my entire 2600 hours of playtime.
I'm sorry, but if you've got this much experience in the game, you have absolutely no excuse to die this many times in one game. One death per minute for twenty minutes is abhorrent. Please, change your playstyle, be more defensive, anything. You're better than this, my dude.
