yeah its really annoying to deal with, I know of one friend that’s top 3% Masters or something and he tried finding a match the other day and eventually gave up and decided to play CoD, surely that can’t be good for Gears 5 can it?
I had a long argument/conversation with another friend that they should just get rid of the ranking system entirely, his argument was that if you get stomped you just learn how to improve naturally over time, my argument is that it elevates everybody to another level entirely because no longer can you just go into pubs and just smack kids because you’ll eventually meet opponents that have your number.
As someone that went from rank Silver to Master’s (I almost cried btw) I can tell a huge gap in difference not just in terms of competition but in terms of my own skill, I consider myself a pariah because I go into lobbies and constantly find ways to get in their faces and pimp slap them
Started from the bottom now I’m here
I suspect that over time TC will just broaden the matchmaking to be less strict, it already sounds less strict in OP4, if it allows you guys to match against Diamond players I think you’ll be fine, there are TONS of players that want the top spots and they’ll do anything they can to win so you’ll probably have good competition I hope.
I also don’t know if you are a PC player or not, if so its not surprising you wouldn’t be able to find matches, I and many others despise playing against PC players so we shut off crossplay…
