    Mmr

    yello, I've been playing for a while, and keep hearing stuff about MMR and ELO. I've been curious, but never really looked into it. Can I have a brief explanation for what it is and what it does? thanks in advance

    MMR = Match Making Rating
    Elo = https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system and is a very common basis for MMR

    In short: you have a score. Playing with people of equal score should be 50/50 win/loss. If your score is higher than your opponents, you should have a higher chance of winning. Your score is adjusted at the end of every match based on whether you won or lost and what your odds were according to everyone's scores. If you have a higher score than your opponents and you lose, your score goes down a lot more than if you have a lower score than your opponents and you lose.

    Match making tries to make teams with balanced total scores so it will be an interesting match.

    Odd cause im in top 10 solo ranked and i normally get grouped with at least 2 bronze players. One of which either disconnects or ends up dead 3 to 4 times. Most of the time when i do get paired with others around my level it normally ends up a reque somehow
