    i dont think this is an abuse. He just has exp. booster and he is playing co-op games until he gets to level 13.
    Then why he can be matched with 4500+ players?

    Because he did well in his real matches(perhaps even won all of his 10 calibration games).
    Possible solution to foreigners issue
    In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

      This is a well known method (abuse, exploit) to get high MMR in short time. The real problem is that people are doing this to sell accounts with high MMR. This makes the MM system less reliable (people with high MMR but low skill ruining games until their MMR finally drops to their real skill level). I think the criteria to play in RMM should be fix number of games in unranked instead of level 13.

            Don't create threads regarding closed threads but PM a mod about it.
            MM feedback belongs in the stickies in misc. This issue in particular has been talked about a lot in the last weeks and it is simply possible because the RMM requirement is level-based. Feel free to propose a change in the sticky.
            If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.
