Should matchmaking not be based off solo queue rank rather than mmr? I mean that's literally the point of ranked. 4 games in a row I've laned against platinum level opponents, I'm silver 2. They are intentionally exploited the mmr averaging system by playing with friends on unranked smurfs. I'm fairly sick of being matched up against these players and the cause is clear. Each rank above my own is worth the same as the last, so rather than a scaling or exponential factor, this poorly thought out linear system is what we have. perhaps a ratio/modifier is in order when someone is several tiers higher ranked rather than simply adding 3 mmrs and dividing by 3.
