    I have to present you this peace of art provided by our beloved matchmaking
    this is a 10 seconds queue
    fair and balanced
    so I still won this match, but I can't help it, I'm pissed at this MM
    I'm not even sure there is a MM here tbh
    there is no logic no balance nothing, one gm one master 3 diamonds 2 plats 2 golds and an unranked, we only lacked a bronze and a silver to have a full rainbow, felt wonderful


  • PC

    @Dusklicious Did you do ANY kind of Windows/GPU update? Did you try reboot?

    Not having the issue myself maybe this will help: https://support.fatshark.se/hc/en-us/articles/360034112814--PC-How-to-resolve-Launch-Error-Error-Code-23-

    They really need to up the requirements for ranked. At least level 50, Must own at least 4 champions from each class (including the free champions), and can only use a champion that's level 8 or above.

    I'm tired of having that one person that's level 31 overall. Like I had to carry a level 31 Silver in a ranked game. Like dude, wtf? Imagine just downloading the game and thinking you need to play ranked.

    @HeartQueen
    that's exactly it, you don't need to play ranked when you just started and don't know anything about the game, and gold/plat shouldn't play in master matches

    I don't think they can do that last rule. Masters and diamonds are like less than 5% of the ranked Keyboard and Mouse crossplay player base. Silver 1, Gold 5, and Gold 4 alone make up 46% of the playerbase, and they're the largest playerbase.
    The best they can do to make the queue times not completely shit, but more balanced games are would be to have: Platinum and up be it's own group. Even then that's still a long wait because it's only around 14% of the playerbase, so if wait times are too much, they may have to add some Gold players.

    If more people played ranked, the match making would be more balanced.

    @HeartQueen

    I don't believe this, simply cause my queues are taking around 5 to 10 seconds
    most masters don't mind 5-10min queue, but they mind having a gold or silver in their game
    any other game prevents huge rank difference in matches, and they don't have bigger playerbase
    it's quite simple to understand there is a big difference between lvl 27 gold and lvl 700 gm... no one wants a match mixing up these two

    Most diamonds and masters complain about long queues. If queues aren't that long, mix like and like. If the queue times is longer than 10 minutes, then they may need to draw from the Platinum pool.

    @HeartQueen

    Obviously it's drawing from below plat at anytime. I could see this happening on some regions with lower player counts but this should not be happening on NA/EU servers.

    It's true what TangAce is saying regarding the short Q times.

    It seems the MM's acceptable player spread was widened at the same time as cross play or a bug was introduced.

    I never saw Q times this short before cross play was implemented. Prior to cross play implementation it was almost always around 2 minutes - same for casual. Cross play didn't magically introduce a ton of new mouse players to justify the change in Q times. How often do you see console mouse players in a PC mouse match - not often - I check. Even in casual I don't see console mouse players that often - I always have cross input off.

    Also the MM doesn't distribute "handicaps" well between both teams. If they were to at least fix this distribution problem at least it would have some fairness.

    you can just look my ranked history, plenty of exemples, just today in around an hour I managed to have a low lvl low rank no champ no deck bad items garbage stats in every one of my match


  • PC

    @TangAce

    Guru is really pissing me off with that 500 error... Also how they're advertising OW2 - traitors..

    I looked at the most recent 5 - only one had someone below plat.

    At least the Plat Terminus had some ranked matches under his belt unlike the Khan qualifier who has the casual ELO of a silver. So much for the BS that casual ELO is used to seed for ranked.

    I like the one with the level 39 Masters - lol.

    Well Well...............................


  • PC

    @DambaKing I was joking about the traitors comment. Guru is probably using google ads and it's just targeting. Likely nothing Guru did directly. I can't say I've ever seen a Paladins ad though and OW even has cereal. Eat that...


  • PC

    @DaddyOoker

    hum that term rushed point all game long, had crush talent, ulted every time that andro was around...and strix without speed card lmao
    you like all the lvl 30-70 high dia/master... seems legit (some prob are smurf...others where pretty awful)
    also the furia D4 had default deck and about no champs...16k heal...wonderful, even mutu wasn't able to carry this one


  • PC

    @TangAce I thought the Furia was AFK. You mean that was a live player? oops.

    @TangAce

    My son had convinced me to q ranked with him the other day. Only had time for two. We were the last two pickers for both.

    1st: https://paladins.guru/match/910051005
    Enemy(Evie) has a S1 Master frame. Funny, it's an Xbox player after I just mentioned how few are using mouse. Well, that poor Evie got slaughtered by my son 🙂 Anyway, 4 qualifiers on my team and what the heck let's throw a silver in for good measure too. No complaints - easy win and the Koga did well too.

    2nd: https://paladins.guru/match/910056575
    Had your (and my) favorites to go against - Willo and Strix - ah crap they get Raum too. I mean what the heck top pickers.. Good match though.

    @DaddyOoker
    yeah he was a playing

    Because I've faced this three stack together before, and they are still in my games (I'm the bk, low dmg because the three stack refused to assist lian and I).


  • PC

    @Heartstrife It's a shame people have to behave that way. Anyway, I suggest you clean up the photo as best you can and submit a support ticket https://www.hirezstudios.com/support/ to report the person. You should delete it from here - it will likely be removed anyway.

    I have gotten to trying everything there, and none of it has worked for me. Seems to me that EAC just decided that it doesn't like my computer for whatever reason. At least I'm in close proximity to a computer I can borrow on occasion. But I suppose it means I'll be playing a bit less of the game for a while... Though due to some fortunate IRL circumstances, that "while" may not be too long.
