I think this happened because the opponent favorited hideout, and then some weird banning/favorite logic came at play which made the RNG roll between the favorite maps and what’s left open between both players, but we would have to get the opponents statement on what they banned to exactly know what happened, otherwise we’re missing half to picture to get any idea behind the logic of matchmaking.

has happened to me too

I got this today in a team game, arena was banned and I got 2v2 on arena and also elo ratings were nowhere to be close, our average was around 1400 and opponents were around 1650.
