:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

This is rather a pairing system bug than a game UI / mechanics bug. These players are both ranked in the 1v1 and TG ladders respectively so smurfing is out of the question in this case. We only waited for 3 minutes so it’s not even a matter of the server not finding us an even match because the waiting time wasn’t even that long. I’m just dazzled. I would expect to get paired vs players up to 1800 in TG and that would be totally fine (even if they are 1300 in 1v1 queue for example).

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Queue a 2v2 game.
  2. Get paired vs two 2k players (1v1) and 3k TG ELOs.
  3. Leave the game.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
Getting normal elo players (we are 1k and 1.6k in TG).

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

If the high level player team is in the queue for a certain time, they get any match. (5 min or more i believe)
The low level player team does not have to be in queue for a certain time at all.

It’s not optimal, but it’s not a bug.

Also there there are instances of not premade teams each, were the teams would be more balanced, if some players would be swapped.
team 1 is 2500 2500 2800
team 2 is 2400 2400 2600

The players with rating 2800 and 2600 should be swapped for sure, because they queued up independently for TGs without a premade group.
