My big problem with Battlegrounds Gladiator Circuit

edited February 26 in General Discussion
I'll get a lot of dislikes and get goods because that's the easiest illogical response but here's my biggest logical complaint about BG. The matchmaking in the end game (gladiator). I've played for almost the entirety of the games life. I'm not the best player. But I'm not complete garbage. I obviously have a stacked account so my prestige or whatever is pretty high up there. I understand lower level accounts getting upset about the struggle of matching up. But BGs is an arena style mode. Make it random. It's the Gladiator circuit it shouldnt be based on accounts prestige anymore. I'm not saying I don't want competition. But at zero points I'm EXCLUSIVELY getting paired against other top tier legends and I can't get three wins to save my life despite perfect matches. It makes even 3 bi-daily wins a complete nightmare, like im competing for the top spots in the entire game. I get it It's the THUNDERDOME!! But again. It shouldn't be this challenging at freaking Uru unless I'm a level 40 accnt with no experience. If you think there is an absolutely valid reason why in an arena style format a weaker account has the right to higher rewards than mine without having to play me for them I'd love to hear it. 😅 the guys/gals who beat me deserve better rewards but the other players don't even have to step up.

    You match against similar rating (ELO, MMR, in LoL and Dota 2) players.
    This season is extra challenging due to the low amount of players playing this mode

    Just because you’ve been playing for a while and have a big roster doesn’t automatically qualify you for higher tiers. Ranking up specific champs that are good for certain metas and making sure your deck and draft are good are just as important as skill.

    You missed the point love. If I lose to someone. They deserve to get better rewards. I'm talking about lower accounts not even having to play against me to place better in a shared rewards placement format

    Did matchmaking change over the weekend? Cause I think I saw another post over the weekend complaining their weak roster is getting matched with whale accounts a lot? Lol

    I understand your frustration but you mentioned you’re being exclusively paired with top tier legends. I’m just saying your deck and draft have a significant impact on how well the match goes and ranking up champs to help you in certain metas will increase your chance to win those matches. I matched someone with 4 R3s and I only have 2. But my draft helped win me the match. It’s possible to punch up and win is all I’m saying. Just trying to help.

    I think it is important to point out

    GC does not take your account into its matchmaking scheme

    The only thing that matters is how many points you have in GC

    It’s a PVP mode where everyone plays everyone. It was originally designed for end game players at launch, if you’re a player who account is smaller or isn’t quite as skilled then you’re gonna struggle.

    You don't understand how matchmaking works.

    I didn't manage to climb I'm stuck in vibranium2. I like less and less, too many big roosters for my account unfortunately. I only play it when I'm at 9000 dean to not lose any. 5 victories is too much for me

    It's a competition. You're fighting for the same rewards.

    The Kansas City Chiefs won the Superbowl this year. The garbage Denver Broncos beat us, should we give them the Superbowl trophy?

    No but you should probably give it to the 9ners cause that holding was ridiculous.

    Right.... but we should ignore all the missed calls that could've benefited the Chiefs? Like the missed 1st down call?

    So...because you can't compete against other Players at your level between Bronze and Gold, you think much lower Players should be vastly overpowered because you've earned it? How does that logic apply?

    As for the GC, it's a free-for-all in the same Tiers.

    I feel losses in gc is too damaging. I think we should lose half the points we lose now. I wanted to hit 840k solo points in battlegrounds but the problem that always happens with gc presented itself. You start to win and gain points you don't want to lose so you limit your play. That's how I approach it usually tho. The stress that comes with falling is just a little too great. I've hovered around mysterium 1 for a week or 2 but I haven't played in 5 days and I'm still mysterium 2 and haven't had the stress of playing which I feel good about.
