Everybody seems to know about and trash on PUBS SBMM and I don't see anyone pointing out that in a TEAM BASED game Respawn is deciding to match a random Platinum against a pre-made squad of Masters... If they can't even remotely match a fair game on a ranked mode, the one playlist that is supposed to use a SBMM system the most, how can we expect them to know anything of what they are doing to PUBS?
This is completely killing the solo-queue experience of the game both in PUBS and in ranked to the point where almost everyone would rather not play the game at all than queue up solo. It's a very simple system that both playlists need, simply do not ever match a pre-made squad against randoms. I would much rather wait an extra 5 minutes finding a fair match than spend 10 minutes into a game to find a squad that is clearly unfairly communicating with one another and instantly * on my entire team. Then they kill you and you see their names all start with the same clan tag... what joke to the "competitive" experience

@Skaro07That is one of the many things that needs fixed but im not sure exactly how many premades there are and if it would be enough to fill atleast 2-3 lobbys of them without longer queue times for them and making the skill gap huge beetween them
@ This affects all people in the server, including squads. For solos it is almost like being cheated against, while squads are not getting the challenge they deserve. Ruining entire matches for all solos just so that squads can match a little faster makes no sense. You cannot just ignore a major issue under the assumption that maybe there is another one created if you fix it, if they were so concerned about matching times there are so many tests they could run while still helping:
These are only examples I could think of the top of my head, but overall fairness of the game should be absolute and non-negotiable against everything, it is the first principle of a game. If your game lacks in matching times because of it, then you either have another problem you need to fix or your game is bad and deserves to die.
