So I've been playing random team for a little while now, specifically 2v2. For the first 10 - 15 games there were no problems, the matches were pretty fair etc. My first 10 or so games I went undefeated or something like 15-1. Now the problems start. This puts me at about level 10 or so, but now the ridiculous AMM thinks I'm a godly player. Maybe I am? doesn't matter. No matter how many games I lose my ELL is still so goddamn high, battle.net thinks Im the best.
Now here's the problem: The ladder is trying to bring my percent down to 50% or so - what happens now is (at level 13, 70% wins) im constantly paired with players who are horrible. OR players who have 0-0 brand new accounts. This might be fine except im doing this against level 25+ players. So imagine a level 13 + a level 1 against 2 level 29's. Ya, terrible. You might think after losing a couple times like this, it might start to get fair again. Nope. It's STILL going on like this.
The problem with the new AMM is the ELL. Why is it pairing players based on an imaginary level no one can see? This effectively makes your 'real' level, the one displayed on bnet, worthless.
The other day me and friend were at'ing, we are level ones - we get paired vs level 25's. But my friend reminds me "don't worry, level means nothing now". The old AMM represented an ACTUAL LADDER. If you were good, you'd climb above the players not as good. With the new AMM, you can think of it as more of a giant pool of players and the system tries putting players in the same area of the pool as other players of equal skill. So why call it a ladder?
It gets a little frustrating when after 70 games I have to be paired up with players who don't even know how to build an altar. Why am I stuck with players are brand new to game when I'm already up in level? The pool style of pairing needs to go and the old AMM needs to be brought back - you know when levels meant something?
The AMM seems more orientated towards solo players anyway, why was it shoved down rt players throats?
