So I have noticed when we win 3 or 4 games in a row as a team(we are just silver 5, not pros or anything) then we start going against gold div 1 teams until we get a loss. After we get a loss we start going against lower gold or silver until we win 3 in a row then it starts again.

Doesn't this defeat the purpose of tiers if you aren't competing against the people around your tier consistently? I understand going against gold 5 if you are silver 1 and doing your promotion matches, but I can't understand why we as a silver 5 team go against gold 1 teams most of the time.

Do the tiers influence the matchmaking system at all? I am just confused by the whole thing.
