    Im curious if a premade went in and purposefully lost like 30 games they could get back into the normal queue lol.

    I think my win rate post summerset has dropped down to less then 10%, every game is a either getting replacement into a game somebody left or 2 pug groups vs a premade and you will be lucky to get a 4 man team in most of them. I havn't noticed the queue changing at all, probably played about 40 games now with no change. I wonder if the MMR can even go down or if its been set at the summerset patch and whatever you had then you are stuck to now.

    Same today qued and 4 times out of 5 get in 3 mean teams against two 4 men teams, plus in one we later got one but after half time they stayed up and it was literally a two against 8 match

    I really wish there was a way to view the stats of our character. How many specific enemy types killed, trials run, dungeons run, BGs played, BG stats.... everything.

    There's no way to match three teams up that will lead to consistently good matches. The stronger team will always use the potential advantage of superior numbers to win every single time. You don't have one great team vs one average team, you have one great team using one average team to destroy another average team. ZOS gave players the ability to turn every fight into a number's advantage. Until ZOS realizes this and switches instancing to two teams like every other game, matchmaking will always suck.

    FFS, we have people in another thread posting 93-94% win rates over hundreds of games before this patch. Ask yourself how that is even possible when during every single game, 8 players need to lose every time 4 win.

    Yeah and battle royale style or free for all matches aren’t skill based either because those have even more than 3 teams!

    I’ve actually been getting grouped against solos/duos but 99% of the time my team mates are below 200 cp so it feels like I’m fighting premades lol

    You can't use CP in battlegrounds anyway.

    FFA has never had any sort of competitive scene in any game and Battle Royale style games aren't much different than dueling most of the time. Neither are comparable to three teams at all because in any team based game you have to work with your team to win. There's a huge distinction between relying only on only yourself, and relying on teammates.
