    For the past several guild seasons (maybe since they put in the guild match making changes) it feels like match making is affected by where my guild is in the group of 6. This includes feedback from other guild mates too. If we are behind, we seem to get more and longer win streaks. When the guild is leading, we seem to suffer many losses and longer losing streaks. The last 24hrs of the week seem to return to normal. Maybe just conspiracy theory, but it repeats regularly.
    It would stand to reason that this would support that update’s intent of bringing weekly contests closer together between guilds. It doesn’t help with boost buying if one guild is way ahead causing the other teams to back off - so involving guild progress could certainly make the guild competition more intense and encourage more boost buying.
    I have no facts to support this - just a perception (and a frustrating start to my battle bay day - the day that we moved several quests ahead of the others in our group).

    It might have something to do with the season reset, but I doubt it. The devs say they don't manipulate matchmaking in any way, other than trying to get the same amount of each mk on a team, and I believe them.

    Does it really matter?
    in almost every battle I played this season there was some imbalance like this:
    enemy team has one fixer but it's mk5, we have two fixers, one mk4 (with lvl20 rare bolts) and one mk2 fixer (with uncommons tier I sometimes II), this may look better for us but: we have 3 shooters but only mk4 and they have 4 shooters but mk5
    the difference between the teams in terms ofcapability of healing and damage dealing is too big, it would be more balanced if we had stronger but less shooters and worse fixers and they had more but weaker shooters when they have stronger fixer

    Most of my battles have 3x mk5 shooter+ 1x mk4 shooter+ me (mk2fixer) vs 3x mk5 shooter+1x mk4 shooter+ 1x mk5 fixer.
    Its almost always a close battle, and the win loss is around 50%. Why? 'Cause mk5s at 1.1k have low skill.

    yes, they have but they can still deal enormous damage in one shot and they can one-shot you with big torpedo/mine/railgun/sniper critical hit/big bertha

    I know. Thats why I use Bolt and stay in the back. I stole the setup of a mk2 fixer I saw at 1800. Sniper+OB+bolt+Pulse+Std Shield. It got me to 1.2k so far, and I'm using one t1E (sniper), 2 t2UC (OB+Bolt), one t2R (pulse) and one t1UC Std shield.

    Then I will believe you. One less excuse I can use for losing then - gotta fix my skills.

    People have very high thougts of how complicated the matchmaker is. Imagine the queuetime if just half the crazy false rumours on these forums were true.

    But this thread is based upon a fundamental misunderstanding; The matchmaking engine isnt trying to feed you wins/loses. It doesnt care about how your day at work was and it doesnt wanna see pictures of your pet pig. All it wants to do is to bring 2 teams of 5 with roughly equal infamy together as fast as possible.

    It’s probably just coincidence or superstition/imagination.

    However, the relationship (if it exists), might also be causal. You only contribute to quests when you win, so if your contribution is high, it follows that you’ve been winning games, so your infamy will also be high, and thus your matches will get harder.

    If you lose a lot of battles, your quest contributions will also be down, but then your games will get easier.

    That doesn’t explain why it would be the same for all of you simultaneously, but that’s the best I’ve got.
