I am 2100 SR player, Elite 3 player even on my worst WL this year i started 10-5 and still finished gold 1 with a game to spare.
I play rivals a lot and against 1900-2000 SR i win easily, not even close i am talking 5-1,4-0 etc. Only against 2050-2200 it's 50/50 and 2200+ SR i get destroyed.
Yes i will still finish gold 1 at worst but i sweat hard for every win, every single game goes down to the wire. I have to defend 1 goal lead or score last minute goals to win games. I don't understand. Am i only playing 2000+ SR players or what?
