Bit of background. I usually finish gold 2, sometimes gold 3, but never gold 1. This weekend I had my best ever start in the three years I’ve been playing (9-3). This was finally going to be the WL I get Gold 1. I’m now sitting on 10-11. From 9-3 to 10-11. 1 win and 8 loses from 9 games.
I understand that matchmaking is a thing, and that the higher you go, the tougher the opponent, but it seems too extreme.
Every weekend I had a strong start, I only finish gold 3. Every weekend I start crap (5-5 or 4-6), I finish Gold 2. Just doesn’t seem right. Winning more at the start should increase your chance of doing well, not decrease it.
Next week I’m purposely losing to go 4-6.
