Matchmaking is driving me crazy

[ Edited ]
45 replies 491 views Edited May 25, 2013

 I have been playing uncharted 3 for a while now and match making is not fair at all in TDM because I will get always matched with teammates like the ones in the picture (even though I hardly won). So, I decided that FFA will be my answer since I'm a person that I love to win by myself but instead I got late joined into match that almost finished with a score of 12 and above. I said Ok lets switch plunder at the beginning I said wow that more like a balanced team but no, my team only kills the other team and NEVER carry the idol :smileysad:.

 

anybody feeling the same?

Matchmaking thinks that a level 75 5th legacy is a god and can carry the whole team:smileytongue:

lol in the example you put up, you actually won...

 

Though I agree matchmaking is a problem, but that's not really anything new...

Don't you even! You think you die, and that's that?! Huh?! You think you die an' everything'll be sugar and rainbows?!

I really don't understand how the team balancing works. I thought that it just sorted the two teams according to player level (with +5 levels for every legacy), but I've seen some very odd teams even when all the players were lonewolfs. More often than not the teams will end up completely unbalanced and when that happens the only decent player on the losing team will usually leave and make things even worse. This is why I prefer Team Objective because I feel good players can carry their team more there (assuming the teammates aren't completely useless and actually try to stay in the hill etc).

From what I've seen, it seems to pair the highest level with the lowest level, then the 2nd highest with 2nd lowest, and so on until they divide into 5v5 or whatever mode you're playing.

 

Problem with this is that it takes into account legacies as being much higher leveled than a lower legacy no matter their actual level or experience in the game itself. As well as it pairs parties together by default therefore adding to the imbalance of teams. Because a party will only take into account the leaders level when matching up people and tries its best to keep the party together(though not always succeeding) even completely imbalancing the teams.

 

In short, you are basically punished for being legacied and a lone wolf, as you are almost always guaranteed most of the lowest levels on your team by default.

Maybe you should turn on DLC less low levels.

You should be happy, since you won the match showed in the OP. The only advise i can give you is to either play in a party or turn DLC on.
