Well, that’s not quite how it works because you’re forgetting another vital step in the process…
After bringing a full team of top performers, they are then matched with similar leveled players. Not just randoms all the time, that only happens when the Matchmaker has a hiccup or is trying to fill low populated servers, etc.
Sounds like you need a solo queue only playlist. Hope you get one honestly - it’s probably the only way this ranking system will kind of work accurately. For some of us, there is literally zero reason to play halo if you can’t play with our friends. Even if they weren’t friends before and I add someone new…we are friends now…that use to be how things worked…find a decent player that isn’t an a** hole, add him, play with him - back in the social days of xbox. Maybe you should find some people to play with. Honestly I would never touch infinite without friends, this game is a 5/10 solo experience best case scenario right now.
I’ve always felt this to be a stupid complaint honestly. This isn’t a problem with people wanting to have fun together and party up, this is a problem with people who solo queue up and don’t seem to grasp that crappy teams will always be a thing because they’re choosing to have an AI matchmaker pick their teammates for them, and not actually choose their teammates themselves. The best thing you could possibly ask for is to have the matchmaker try to prioritize pairing teams up with similar teams. But it should never enforce this rule. Anything more then this is unreasonable. Teams will often need a player or two to fill in holes that they themselves might not have filled yet with a friend, who they either don’t have or is currently unavailable.
In social, wins and loses shouldn’t even matter. You’re not suppose to take them serious. As a win or a loss doesn’t really effect anything. At most, you just want a solid fun match and that’s it.
Ranked you’re playing to win, if your solo queuing there you’re openly admitting that you’re not playing with win and that’s you’re own problem.
If anything, 343i should be adding more tools into the game to try and get people to make friends while they play so that they can team up together down the road to enhance their experience with the game.
Then post some information like when you like to play, a general location you live in, if you have a mic, ect.
Then just check later and see if you have any responces. But nah, they ain’t got time for that here. They’d still rather use that AI matchmaker and pretend it can read their minds to give them the most perfect teammates ever.
Take solace in knowing that when your team is a bunch of randoms and you are matched up with a squad, the game actually thinks you are better than them. The match making system gives a boost to the team mmr to account for better coordination.
Also, how do you know you’re getting matched against a crew of stompers?
When it comes to online multiplayer games, this is what people call a “you problem.” That is to say that there is no design error here. Trust me this game has a lot of design issues but this is not one of them.
Most of the time I play solo too, so I know about the uphill battle of being on a team where the 3 other people are not communicating while the other team has full comes. I recommend you find a clan or friends to play with, change your out look from “others fault” to “my fault,” or if you can’t to either of those trying a switch to playing FFA or campaign.
I 100% Agree with this. Altough to mention having a 4 team doesn’t guarantee victory, but you get a lot more chances.
The infinite Legion is recruiting, if you are a competitive player or casual and you are interested in having a team, send me a text, Discord Zedrik#4915
Maybe you missed the analogy to a dodgeball game? Obviously there are plenty of people with an unhealthy weight that are good at video games. I only fall into one of those categories.
Regardless, OP is just grumpy that they got matched up against some better performing players and so “obviously the game is broken.” We won’t see them here complaining when they are the ones stomping lower performing teams.
