ZOS THIS IS THE *UNBELIEVABLY BROKEN* MATCH I JUST JOINED BECAUSE OF YOUR MMR SYSTEM.

This is the screenshot of the score I took immediately upon joining.
This was not a match where I had been playing for a while and we were losing.
I just joined this match.
And sure enough, the winning team was a straight up premade ultibombing pugs one at a time.
IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE TO DROP PUGS INTO HALF PLAYED LOSING MATCHES OTHER TEAMS OR PLAYERS HAVE QUIT.
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT THE REASON THEY QUIT IS THEY ARE PAIRED OFF AGAINST A PREMADE AND PREMADES HAVE A MASSIVELY SLANTED ADVANTAGE.
THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN JUSTIFY GIVING MMR THAT SLOTS YOU AS A PUG INTO A MATCH WITH A PREMADE AND A 240 NEGATIVE SCORE HANDICAP.
(A!) BECAUSE NO ONE LIKES FIGHTING PREMADES WHEN THEY AREN'T GROUPED AND THE SOLUTION IS NOT, IN NO WAY, "THEY SHOULD GET A GROUP" BECAUSE YOU CANNOT "GET A GROUP" AFTER A MATCH HAS STARTED.
(B!) If the other teams leave they FORFEIT AND THE MATCH ENDS, they don't CAUSE OTHER PEOPLE TO TAKE A LOSS OR LEAVE PENALTY.
If this is how MMR calculates I MUST BE THE GOD DAMN BOSS KING OF PUG MMR to land in a premade 240 point handicap
REDICULOUS. Honest to god. JUST REDICULOUS.
