**WE ARE NO LONGER Temporarily Reverting Tier 1 War Ban System**

After further discussion, the game team has made the decision not make adjustements to the ban system.
The previously proposed fix would have resolved the issue for Summoners who are on the cusp of T1/T2 play, and negatively impacted Alliances more securely in T1. Instead, we recommend that cusp Alliances switch to Manual Placement to your members to place the allotted 5 Ban Champions limit there.

Apologies for the back and forth, and for any confusion.

Thoughts about the current BG matchmaking

Hey guys, just wanted to share what I experienced.

I was stuck in Plat 2 for more than 10 matchs, facing Paragons of approximately my level (14k prestige), and then the 3 last matchups brought me cav players of 7-10k prestige. I saw a comment saying that the "global" matchmaking that mixed all players was at Diamond 3, but apparently not. And maybe, if you're stuck a long time, you can start facing lower accounts. I don't really know...

    I've been playing like 20 matches in diamond 4 and lost like atleast 15 as I was just overpowered by my enemies, so no the difficulty doesn't really go down.

    Pretty sure P2 is where you start facing the little guys

    That’s relative.
    If you are a low account you will see difficulty go up, if you are a strong account you will see difficulty go down.
    It all depends from which point of view you are seeing it.
    It needs for some to get harder for others to get easier, that’s inevitable.

    This season I haven't seen a difficulty change from Gold I onward. I'm currently in Vibranium III, but in each tier from Gold I to here, I face 70-80% paragon accounts that roughly have a 15-20% average account rating higher than mine

    Season after season, I see comments about getting to face significantly smaller accounts.

    I’ve seen two matches, both last season, that I would consider completely out of my range, both against players with 4* and just a few 5*, none ranked beyond R3.

    That’s it. Twice in, what, ten seasons? It was silly, and I honestly felt like it was wrong, but of course I took the win because that’s what you do in Platinum (or any other tier). I can’t think it was any more enjoyable for him than it was for me.

    Broader (somewhat rhetorical) query, though, is how an account like that gets to Platinum? Is this what the team intended when they designed BGs?
