I assumed that the tweaks glu made to the matchmaking would create more even matchups. Prior to the update I (silver team) would play roughly half of my bonus games against gold teams, resulting in a loss 9/10 times against these teams, and a .500 record overall.
I dumped a bunch of gold into boxes today and have been playing a lot of bonus games, and I’ve found that the more games I play, the worse my matchups are. It’s now at least 4 out of 5 games against gold teams. My team is pretty decent for a silver team, 60k strength or so, and I still find myself going on 10 game losing streaks.
WOH is far too difficult to win, I can’t win bonus games, and I’m even losing prime games now because I’m constantly getting matched up against teams tiers higher than mine. Where’s the incentive to play when I can’t win where I’m at, and can’t readily accumulate resources to level up?
I understand that glu’s motto is “spend money or **** off” but it’s disappointing that this game has gone from ‘pay to win’ to ‘pay just to compete’
