Matchmaking: buggy or bad joke? (Screenshots)

Guys, first of all to clarify my position: i’ ve been enjoying the game for a while. It is a good game and you are doing a great job, but i’ came here to cry a little bit.

The matchmaking many times does not make any sense. I’ m not the only one playing with players with way more trophies and way more powerful than me. 3 or 4 levels stronger minions and in the first places on global. The points i lose are few, only 5. But the problem is that when i encounter those players the game forces me to wait and lose. There is nothing i can do to even challenge them. It’ s annoying and usually ends with closing the game and not playing at all because it’ s pointless

I agree with you, not sure why isnt any Rating lock, for example ±200 points so in you bigger bad luck you can face enemy 400point higger than you.
hope develepers fix it

// BTW why you face this high lvl enemy is bc in any update was that you cant face member of your clan so when top 50 pp is in 2 guild. Thats why you face them

I’ ve never been on top 50, nor in my guild are top 50 players. We are 2 or 3 that manage to make it top 200, but that’ s it. There are always enough players near my trophies for matchmaking

A mí me pasa lo mismo ,me enfado y cierro el juego por un tiempo ,no sé si a eso le serviría a los desarrolladores ya que piden que estés jugando siempre

I am just curious. Last hero standing event is very precise on matchmaking. I finished it without encountering other players with devastating difference in trophies as it happens on regular matches. How comes you don’ t use the same matchmakinh system on casual battles?

Kariolis, in LHS you don’t face real players. Those are bots adjusted to your level.

I get frustrated with this too but at the same time, I don’t mind it as much anymore to be honest. Also consider such a lock. Then the top XX players would constantly be fighting only each other. While I know that some of them I have no chance of beating, I usually try and when I lose I will lose 5 trophies so it’s not a shocking amount. Overall with the trophy loss limitations, I think the game does a decent job of evening this out.

I didn’t know we were playing with bots on LHS. And it doesn’t matter much i think, at least for me.

About the regular battles. It doesn’t bother me the trophies i lose. It’ s the fact that i have to lose. Seriously, there is no point on even trying to challenge them. I can’t play against them. Their units are 2-3 levels bigger than mine. This alone is dead end for wining. And if you add the spell that spawns 1 unit on each lane early on the game, you don’t even have to do the maths to see where this is going.

When i encounter them, most of the times i don’t even spawn units any more. I’ m a sitting duck either way. And many times i just close the game. It pushes me away from the game.

It’ s not sollution these big boys to play only with each other. I was hopping to meet them in battle to see how they play. But when 5-6 games out of 10 are against them, it’ s completely annoying. Why don’ t they have some battles against bots and fewer against players with huge gap on trophies;

i think the ranking is way off considering the huge differences in player levels/cards…

what is bizarre tho is whenever i change cards or decks im faced with players using the same cards… i could literally play scourge 10 matches & face the same cards… then play cards nobody uses much but still i will face them…

matches feel like they are rigged & one player usually has the upper hand, unlike most other games that require skill i.e poker, pool, solitaire, chess etc… - heroic requires no skill, just money to make cards strong & give players huge unfair advantages…
