What’s up with this matchmaking?

I just played a game vs the doctor and I was a bit annoyed at how the other survivors kept failing and being downed by the killer. We ended up dying, all of us. And then I see this...
Besides the fact that these could or could not be deranked people, how can this kind of matchmaking even take place?

    ive been getting crap like this all the time. It's really frustrating, but it can be bad for killers too , if they end up with a team way better than them. i actually think its been done on purpose to fix the slow matchmaking times, as there hasn't been slow queing since this started happening

    Yes, I noticed I’m getting games faster but didn’t care to look at the other’s rank until this game. I will keep an eye on the following ones.

    PS4 I assume, I guess the matchmaking system widened its search since queue took too long?

    I haven't gotten something so extreme, but I've had matches where I played solo and I was either the highest rank or the lowest rank. Like a rank 10 with a bunch of 13 and 14. I'm on PC.

    I just played another game:
    Legion rank 9
    survivors rank 2, 7, 8 and 18.

    It’s not much different in pc either. Plus I always end up in very high pinged lobbies. And the matching time is not that low. I think I liked the old one better.

    It’s because that person has no one in their region so the match making forces anyone into their lobby regardless of rank.

    The only person who looks out of place there is Pedralopez, who ironically did better than the two veterans at Rank 14 and Rank 15.

    In SWF groups it's not unusual for one high rank member to draw a high rank killer in. My friend is high rank and when we SWF I play against Rank 5 killers all the time (I'm Rank 15).

    But it seems you weren't in an SWF group, and you're teh only one who would have drawn in the Rank 6 killer. I don't now how this happend sorry.

    I've got no explanation for this one I was in last night while doing a Dwight daily solo. This was on PC, too. That Trapper was hardcore blood-thirsty and destroyed us entirely with extreme prejudice.

  • MochanMochan Member Posts: 2,886

    I guess the region matching just didn't work out. There weren't any lower rank killers available.

    For the record, I have never had this problem. If I solo queue I always fight a killer within 3 ranks at most.

    Yup, i posted this screenshot some time ago to see if devs can fix this. It felt bad to see killer's rank after the match.

    We sent a pm to the killer after the match to tell him not to worry, that it was a matchmaking issue and that shouldn't have ever happened.

    Don't they always? There was more said I didn't catch in the screenshot, for sure. Could tell the Killer was being nourished by the salt. I was just laughing it off and in shock that matchmaking did that, honestly. Looka' those add-ons, too; that Trapper came to murder. One went down and it snowballed quick, fast, and in a hurry. Pretty good job so far!

    Actually, i don't know if they always do.
    Of course i've seen it sometimes.
    But i mostly have the chat closed & usually just leave immediately. Y'know, wanna play more 'n' stuff.

    Funny thing is I was getting nearly instant lobbies as survivor on PS4 until recently (with appropriately ranked players), I'm assuming the matchmaking change went through and made things like this.

  • AttackfrogAttackfrog Member Posts: 1,135

    Lol, but this "ranking system" works!

    See the other thread about the ranking system on the general discussions page.

  • EntitàEntità Member Posts: 1,565

    What? O.o A rank 2 team against a rank 18 killer? O.o

  • TheluckyboiTheluckyboi Member Posts: 1,113

    yeah, has been happenning a lot

  • HatCreatureHatCreature Member Posts: 3,298

    So i'm not the only one, I think I made a thread like this too but it seems it's gotten worse since then. It feels bad when I get matched with a low level killer as Survivor and I hate getting matched with high level Survivors as Killer. The que times have been really slow, I wonder what's going on, not enough people playing?
