After complete frustration over the last three days of playing solo ranked King of the Hill because of the atrocious matchmaking, this was the tipping point for me. I’ve dipped into Masters twice now but can’t stay there, this is why.

Please… please explain to me why a Diamond 3/Master ranked player is getting paired with BRAND NEW PLAYERS who i just watched bot walk around the entire map aimlessly. This is 50% of my games, i promise you that’s not an exaggeration, but this game expects me to win this match? HOW.

Also how is the total team skill for my team 46,934?. All four of my teammates have to be on their placement matches, my points amount to 19,802, how can the other four people make up the other 27,132 amount of points if THEY DON’T HAVE A RANK?. Their still on their placement matches, i swear TC make this stuff up as they go.

I can’t put up with this awful matchmaking anymore, it sucks all the fun out of the game and is 90% my problem with Gears 5 right now. You can’t play with friends, not that any of my friends want to play Gears 5, it takes 10+ minutes to find a ranked game in the UK when you’re in a 3,4 or 5 man stack and that’s if you’re lucky to find a game at all.

This is the worst matchmaking of any game i’ve ever played. I know @TC_Octus wonders around these forums and answers a few questions here and there, would be really nice to have an explanation of why i was put in this match and why the total team skill equated to 46,934 when it’s not even possible as they don’t have ranks.

I feel like i need another 3 week break from Gears, this is easily the most angry i’ve been at this game.

Edit: Back for Operation 3 after 3 months baby, hope this matchmaking malarkey gets resolved one day.
