So this weekend I've managed to cruise to 12 wins with 12 games remaining.

I've now lost 5 on the bounce, in 18 games in lost 6 but suddenly I've reached 12 wins and I've lost 6 straight?

It just confuses me, I've played a couple of really good players where they just smashed me but a couple of rhe games have just been goals in 40/45 minutes or 85/90 minutes.

Its not pressure or bottle because I genuinely don't care what rank I get im only playing for fun but whats going on? I don't understand it. Is my form mega high or something, I mean why am I suddenly playing such great players?

    From my experience that’s when it starts to get difficult. Once you hit Silver 1. Pretty sure you get matched with opponents in the same bracket as you.

    I'm pretty sure it tries to match you up with someone at a similar rank. The fact you're at 12 wins already, I'd expect the majority would be division 1 or 2 players already at that stage. The more wins you're at, the harder your opponents should become... I think that's how its aimed to work anyway.

    But I totally get your frustration, this is where the shouts of scripting comes from too.

    First 5 games are unranked so against anyone, after that you gain +1 up to 15 for how many wins you have against losses, more wins better opponents.

    So you got some wins then started to face better players.
