What’s funny is your use of the word “period” when you have zero argument.
What about you try to explain me this :
or this :
For your information, the search is based on “Total Team Skill” points which is totally different.
Plus, there is no such thing as “true skill”, especially when solo queuing since you are supposed to carry potatoes against stacks.
True skill can exist when you are playing against and with players of the same level.
Only this way you can know if you performed or not.
That’s the reason why in every professional sport you got divisions and categories.
Let’s take soccer as an example to show you how dumb your statement is : In FA Cup when a Premiere League team beats a National League One, it’s hard to tell if just one of the team performed, both or neither.
In Fifa World Cup, when Argentine loses, it’s hard to tell if Messi performed or not as most of his team mates don’t play on the same level.
But if you look at a whole season, when teams confront themselves several times in the same division, you can tell if they performed or not, and the stats reflects the efficiency of the players in thier respective teams.
If you want to be an arrogant nitpicker you can tell i’ts not literraly random.
But as long as the system works the way it does, except for the 0,1% top players and the 10% really bad players, the sytem is not really accurate and it doesn’t reflect “true skill” at all.
I don’t get what I’m saying that you struggle to understand.
It’s basic logic though. “Period”.
