  • Solo Ranked Match Question

    Is it completely normal to wind up against stacks in solo ranked very often?

    This has been happening to me for a lot of games. I am up against very organized opposition with good communication, synergized (and probably practiced) picks. Just last game, I was against a party of 4 and at the end of the game, I saw that my team had a party of 2 and the remaining 3 of us were solo.

    It was obviously a complete stomp as expected, but what I don't get is, how is this used to determine my solo rank? When I am up against a very well organized party. Games like these will end up in complete stomps time and time again.

    So, I guess this is true:

    Believe it or not, few kiddos will soon post here how that kind of thing is justified and how few no lifers managed to increase their solo rmm opposite to millions who see this as a broken idea.

      Thats the reason why solo rating matters more than party rating atleast to me. It's so easy to win with 5 man stack that games usually are booring and ends before 30 mins, I have some rl friends that only play ranked when they are 5 stack lol, so their chances to win are higher. But keep in mind that its possible to win, I barely loose when I'm with my rls because we have a good communication etc, but if a friend from the game invite me to a random party its like 50%-50% to win, not always a 5 stack means that players are good and have nice comunication. About your question, yes, usually solo quee will be matched agaisnt 5 stack, 4 stack and 1 solo, 3 stack - 2 solo, and you can be one of them, not always u will have 5 solo vs 5 stack

        No, no I still do play solo, I prefer it a lot more. But if I wind up against stacks, that sort of makes it moot to play solo ranked doesn't it?

        I thought the system was 4+1 will be matched with 4+1 and so on. But 2+1+1+1 vs 4+1 was relatively new to me but happened in a few successive games. So I wanted to know if it's normal?

          Oh, I'm sure I'll have a lot of those posts coming my way, about how I'm not good enough and that the losses were all my fault but I was just curious if this happens often or it's just been a few off games like this for me.

            It happends often cuz system isn't working properly.
            Yesterday i played 1+1+1+1+1 vs 2+2+1, so it's obvious that there are no rules, just random mm.

              it also happened to me. Valve should really consider implementing back the soloq option

                Ouch, so it is recurrent. Looks like it's time to go back to stacking with my friends and getting easy games.

                The solo queue option too, was really terrible, they failed hard even at that. So they removed the mode altogether. I guess the only solution for me is to stack too. Thanks for all the inputs guys.

                  the higher the queue goes . ( eg over > 3..4 minutes ) the higher chance there is of getting matches with a odd number of stacks in each team . 2+2+1 vs 1+1+3 and so on .

                    Solo queue + region lock = no more eu russia and no more 4k MMR + 2k MMR stack playing with 4k players

                      Please stop re-opening these reads.

                      Valve doesn't care. Get used to it.

                          valve dos care but not if there are 1000000 threads about this. Thats why we opened a thread for such things. Use it.
