    Im at 235 infamy and that's pretty low. And the reason for this is that I'm getting matched against people who are at level 40 or higher. I'm only a level 16 enforcer and it's literally impossible for my team to kill boats that strong. I always stagnate here because of players like this. If the infamy system is supposed to match people of similar strength then why am I dealing with people like this?

    Ideally the infamy system matches players of equal Infamy, Infamy being a combination of strength and skill. Captain 40 players in a 235 match must mean their skill is highly suspect.... and as such you'll eventually pass them

    It doesn't match solely on Infamy though... there's a fairly large unpublished algorithm involved in matchmaking. Keep at it, you should move up.

    Not captain level, ship level. I was dealing with a defender with 14000 health, and a shooter with 8000. I don't have the firepower to deal with crap like that.

    Back when Ships were MK1-7, the matchmaking algorithm would put those ships in higher level matches. Sounds like that has been reverted with the new ship leveling having all slots available from the outset. Sounds like a bigger problem than I initially thought, but you should still see forward Infamy progress despite those ships.
