Why am I placed in this MP match?

[ Edited ]
23 replies 378 views Edited Jun 23, 2013

As I speak I'm currently dying, repeatedly, to a full party of players, with mics, with what I'm assuming are their skill ranks of 32, 24, 22 and a (lol) 6. Ours is 4, 2, 0 and 4 again. They are utterly destroying us and are furthering compounding their lead with improved arms and body armor. Their point lead was so huge that a comeback win was a laughable idea.

 

Simple question: Why was I and my team of randoms chosen to lose against these players? Why am I placed into a no win situation of either quitting out and letting my population suffer or lose and still see my population suffer. Why are these players not placed against another similarly skilled party of players?

if you really have an issue, get together with friends, or ask people on the forums to help out. Communication is key at this game and you cant complain when that lacks and you lose. the reason you are put into these matches is because its most ideal with your connection.

It's not their skill level, it's just the level system that naughty dog has. You level up by how many games you play so even if you lose every game you will still level up. Has nothing to do with skill. Each 7 games you play you level up once.

Lol I think it is a safe assumption that someone who has played more games is usually better than someone who has played less or hasnt at all (week 0)

Communication is key in every MP game.

 

Yes they were using it and yes we weren't but that wasn't the only reason we got rolled. It's just another feather in their cap as to how much better thery were at us.

 

Why weren't they segragated and playing other full parties communicating with each other?

 


the reason you are put into these matches is because its most ideal with your connection.

So matchmaking quality is going to be completley random to ensure that me getting my head caved in with a 2x4 is as smooth as possible?

 

That's ridiculous.

and like I said dont play alone, its a team orientated game where you cant trust randoms, make friends if you have none
