[edited]!  Not naming or shaming. WR Balance is so lopsided it's a joke. Most games this way now with lopsided win. This one was a little better but it's not the norm anymore.

The teams are bad or the matchmaker is bad? There are distinct differences

MM depends on the population it queues up...

  • Sometimes you have potatoes
  • Sometimes you have avg
  • Sometimes you get competent

But its all, say it with me children... "Random"

Lose the MM monitor it is rotting your brain. WR is absolutely no indication of how good a player is. It shows only that the player got lucky in more battles than not!

In fact the use of a MM monitor should be cause for account deletion.

Don't see anything unbalanced there. Your team lost, 5:3. Maybe not close, but not blowout. Perfectly normal, moving on the next game.

Their is non so blind as those who will not see.  Ive noticed it's always the higher wr players who defend the MM. Of course they don't want it changed.

Because better players adapt and grow, thus they float over the turbulence of mediocrity in a random matchmaker, perhaps.

I can look at ship lineup and predict winner 90% of the time. On one side you will have mostly older meh ships and the other newer good or great ships. And I don't believe mm is truly random, way to many blowouts very few close matches. I was in one battle today that was blowout extreme. At end we had all our ships, enemy had none. Game lasted less than 10 minutes. 3 games later almost same thing except I was on the losing side,  ended 10 to 0. I was the only one who sank anything. Blowouts are not fun no matter which side of it your on. If it was truly random, I would end up on winning side near 50% and games would be closer. Since update its been around 20% even when in a div for many of them. My win rate the last few days has taken a major dump. Its like I'm playing with a bunch of 14 year olds.

I see. Such topics will exist either way. And emotions after defeats are not usually extremely positive.
But I should say there is nothing unbalanced here according to the MM Rules. We don't make any secret behind it and we don't have any tricky mechanics there. Only players from both teams can influence every unique battle.  

One doesn't need to expect anything more from MM (like WR balance) than written in the Rules, not to get upset about this. We'll have RANKED BATTLES soon, and the influence of WR of most of our players may be felt there, especially at higher ranks, where you don't even have a chance for a mistake. It's kind of intense battles with significant rewards, and we don't plan our Random Battles to look like this constantly.

And yet the matchmaking will put 3 smolbois on the same team. Maybe they need to stop releasing cash grabs, buckle down, and improve the system.

Nah, buy some dubloons or something...
