4th Lords Only Matched Against The Same or Higher Ranks?

I’ve heard rumors that once you get to 4th lord, scout etc. you will only be matched against other players of that rank or higher, just wondering if anyone can confirm this?

I got to 4th lord yesterday and spent 5 or 6 hours in training with fight request on and only played 3 matches when I usually find one within 30 seconds of starting. Is anyone else having this issue?

I’m a 9th lord and I’ve played lots of 3rd and 4th lords so I wouldn’t say your statement is false. If you’ve had trouble finding matches I’ve hand success with custom searches(language english, region and rank: any)

Yeah, I’ve tried custom search with all different types of parameters, still no luck. Before i got to 4th lord i found the best way to get matches was arcade/training mode with fight request on, but now the only matches i can get is by searching the lobby’s.

Yeah I was 3rd scout/lord last night and I was fighting all sorts of different ranked people. It may have something to do with the rank parameter when searching, but never tried it (since I like fighting all sorts of people).
