Please Fix team balancing

Dear Naughty Dog.

Please try to fix the severe issues this game has with team balancing. 
I love the multiplayer, I really do. But a lot of times my experience with it is frustrating because as a lv 8 player I constantly get paired up with low level people while the enemy team consists of people above lv 70 (and beyond 100).

It all makes it feel very unbalanced as my team is, most of the time, made up of people fairly new to the game while the enemy team dosen't only have better skills and equipment but also A LOT more experience with the game. Loosing feels rather cheap when at lv 8 I'm the highest level player in my team while the lowest in the enemy team is 80.

It's not that winning becomes impossible.. but it does get rather hard and I would preffer to loose against people of my lv rather than people with a bow and skills at level 5 (which I don't even have unlocked).

I feel that the games tries too hard to put me with other people from my country. And while that is nice, i'd rather preffer to have a bit more lag and play with people of my same level.


Thx

^^ Amazing advice right there. State the obvious even though it's the developer's fault that the matchmaking is not up to par.

I play to have fun, not to get better. Becoming a pro is not my aim. :manlol:

Numbers and emblems are meaningless.

I've wiped whole teams of lv150+'s with >lv10 Randoms.

 

Alex is right. Get good.

Who doesn't wipe out teams full of 100's? That's not the point. The matchmaking on this game is a **bleep** and sadly, not everyone has the stones to put up with getting massacred all the time.

Attitude like yours is what kills the online aspect of games.

:manfrustrated: Again: i am not playing to get good. All i want is 1-2 games at the evening against equals. Not against tryhards with high levels.

Unlock everything and you are the same as the players with high levels. 

Just play more.

The point is, the numbers are meaningless.

The skills the higher levels have unlocked are only marginally improved over their base versions and are all virtually neglible aside from Crafter/EE2.

 

They are an indication of In-Game Weeks played vs. Clan Events overcome, nothing more.

 

It's a matter of personal skill+team cohesion. If you have one or both of those that exceeds the skill/cohesion threshold of the opposing team, you will see that the numbers mean nothing.
