Dude the problem for me is I get matched against and sometimes with Soar Johnny. I can't even keep up with him when he picks pathfinder its not fair all around .
I come to realize Mouse and keyboard is cheese because you can run with your gun out.
Skill based match making is the reason why queueing for randoms is so terrible. If you are a "good" player and queue up solo, you will be placed with "bad" players while still being in a "high skill" lobby. I have absolutely no reason to queue solo. Premade groups only since I will play against premades of high skill regardless.
Make solo queue great again! If you queue solo, place me with only other teams of solo queues.
So what I'm hearing is that the game recognizes that your stats don't belong with players who just started playing because you're absolutely wrecking them, and it's putting you in games with players closer to your stats. This sounds totally reasonable to me. I see no issue here. It may not be a perfect system, but it's a system that we've had from the beginning and we've only recently begun to complain about it. The fact is that regardless of who your teammates are, you can learn a lot individually by being placed into a game with people at your level. Moreover, If you're not having fun, imagine what a brand new player is thinking when they get into a game. It's tough enough getting into a game that you don't know how to play, and if you're put into a gamewith people who have 20 kills because they've got so much experience, you may just not play altogether. Thus, the game loses it's audience very quickly. I'm not trying to invalidate your arguments and just say it's as simple as "git gud", because there is some truth to your logic and reasoning, but to say that SBMM has no place in this game is just absurd, especially from a developer/business standpoint.

Remove this *.
Playing with friends in a teambased game should be fun, but apex punishes you for that instead.
And angry at the developers, why in gods earth would they think that this is a good idea?
EDIT: Also back in the day we didnt have SBMM and i saw no complaints so why add it now? (The so called SBMM back then was just for level 10 and under so not really SBMM?)
Playing the game now for some hours takes years off of my life expectancy because of the blood pressure and stress lol
@Pallo421From the official patch notes
With this patch we’ll be pushing out changes globally to matchmaking that we’ve been testing in specific regions. "
I really liked SBMM in the second half of season 3, bringing me into matches of my skillevel.
But with season 4 I fell like the system has changed again!
So which were the test regions?
And has something changed on EU servers now?
I don't know, this no information politics makes me sick!
This whole MM processs is to intransparent!
Listen, I’m not bashing you so do not bash others.
How would you feel if you always loaded in with new friends you introduced to the game and get pushed by triple predators every lobby you go too?
Face facts, SBMM is ruining the game for long term players.
When I was Level 10, I had to deal with learning to play the game getting crushed. Why change it now? Just because it’s better for you doesn’t mean it’s better for everyone else
You are being ignorant. No one asked for it. It’s just so they can profit off new players that come in the game.
I want to pub stomp? Then make a handicap for newer players only to match with newer players.
preds are just gonna create a smurf and ruin the game for them anyways. It doesn’t matter what you do because SBMM is ruining the game upwards and downwards for players!
The game implemented SBMM in ranked so why does public games have to be harder then ranked? Got a problem? Play ranked instead.
So that’s the problem right now. You can shoot it down all you want but it’s real facts for the main players that play this game a lot and I don’t think you play this game enough for you to understand .
Who else agrees?
