    Lightbulb Punished for playing too well

    So it dawned on me why games get harder the more games you win in a row. Must be anti smurf system. System detects youre playing way too good for your mmr so they pool from much more experienced enemy players (in the same mmr bracket, be it smurfs or just actually great players) which is fine, they said as much how they detect smurfs.
    Whats odd is that your own teammates dont get any better they play at the same bad level or even worse somehow. In my experience teammates become very passive and if youre not playing your best game ever youre going to lose. Which ive tested numerous times by playing passive myself as most of my games im not the one getting carried regardless of the role im playing. We flat out lose.
    Which means the system must have me tagged as some sort of "winner" that has to be brought down, A LOT by matching with awful teammates. Those teammates play like they expect someone to win them the game.
    If valve is going to manipulate matchmaking in this way at least make it even. It doesnt always happen. Only on gross win streaks like 3-4 (used to be 10-15 wins b4 that happened way back like 2014-2015) wins in a row. 1-3 wins games look balanced enough. 3rd might be harder. But after 4th it becomes obvious as lanes you arent in, start feeding non stop and thats an indication theyre playing against far better players.
