    Question Normal / High / Very high skill level - how is it decided?

    Hi guys, I wanted to ask if any of you know what factors decide to which skill level does any match belong to?

    It will be decided by an algorithm taking into account different variable factors, such as w/l ratio (%) among others.
    They will not tell you for 2 reasons:

    1) It is being tweaked upon, at least until final and public release of the game so I assume they will only info us about this after final tweaking (though only summarizing, not exactly giving the details or the "key algorithm"
    2) If one was to know exactly which factors influence it, they could play their game so focusing on those factors and not actually trying to win the game or get better. In other words, abuse...
    (Supposing there are factors which can forcibly influenced, w/l ratio is NOT one of them, this is a neutral factor)

    I'm guessing the average or total mmr of all the players in any given game decides what it shows up as

    I forgot something: they will most likely compare you with the complete playerbase to extrapolate the statistics to make it more "objective".

    What's mmr?

    Edit: Ok, got it - Matchmaking rating.

    More amusingly most of my very high rated games have been complete stomps, either from our side or their side

    WHat this game needs is a visible MMR and maybe visible stats.
    I am very sure that the matchmaking system doesn't work very well and I have no clue what rating I am playing on. I guess it's between high and very high but I can't tell for sure.
    But yeah, either a game is a stomp or my team gets stomped. I win like 66% of my games though.

    I guess it is based on number of russians in a game.
