i have 250 wins in a really low elo, i'm being matched with people with well over 1000 wins and well out of my league, is this something thats been wrong since the recent patch?
Number of Wins does not equal skill.
They could have 3000 wins and 7000 losses. You only see the wins.
Always been like that.
I know a guy IRL with over 1000 wins, but he has far more losses, and he isn't very good at the game, to put it nicely.
My smurf that is level 17 has about 70 wins and 20 losses and gets matched vs level 30 accounts that were Platinum and Gold season 2.
It is all based on hidden elo.
