I’m very very much a newb at MvC, but I absolutely LOVE this game, even though I’m still pretty terrible. So I’ve worked my way up from beginner, to amateur, to rookie, and now I’m at Fighter. I played a TON of offline and a lot of player matches, and only went to ranked from time to time when I got some confidence. At rookie, amateur and beginner, the matchmaking seemed to work great. For player match and ranked. Sometimes I’d be matched with someone a level higher, sometimes a level lower, but never a huge disparity in skill level.
As soon as I hit “fighter”, though, it seems as if the game’s put me on a different “tier” altogether. I no longer get matched with anyone below my level, but frequently get matched with people well above my level. This has gotten incredibly frustrating, as I’m just barrrely good enough to even be considered “fighter”, but 90% of my matches are with people much much better than me.
So does anyone know if “fighter” is the bottom of a tier? It’s gotten so frustrating that I actually wanna drop a rank so I can fight people around my level. Is that possible if I go drop a couple of ranked matches (went 10 and 4 to get to “fighter”), or am I stuck at “fighter”?
Also, does the matchmaking system take player battle history into account, or just rated? Because it seems like the matchmaking would be broken if you simply just never played rated and got to hang around beating up on noobs all day when you were an expert. Thanks for any advice.
