    Look at all this anecdotal evidence on the forums man!!!!11!!

    So many threads full of legit information in a huge sample pool of games!


    On topic: The community is small - figure it out people.
    There is a glaringly obvious reason you come across the same people in games all the time, I used to play in 5 stacks every day and we would constantly wait 10-12 minutes at least for a game before we got dumped with randoms. It isn't fun on the other side of the fence either.

    Pipe down.

    To address the concerns about new players:

    Brand new players are not matched with anyone 21+, ever. As they level their acceptable range goes up though. Most games I see with really low level Protectors (1-5) end up with no one over Protector level ~13 in the match.

    These are newish features of the matchmaker.

    It's still possible to end up with a worst case (level 1 vs lvl 20 premade) but it should be very rare and would only occur when the queues are sparsely populated.

    Additionally:

    We've been continually making it harder and harder for pre-mades to be matched vs. solo players by making them wait longer in queue for other pre-mades to show up. It doesn't mean it won't happen, but it should get more rare over time.

    Well... not sure what to say that I have a several friends between level 2-11... I play with them but... you see... as of recently even solo queue (level 35 btw) I have been getting matched with level 10s now... on a semi regular basis... Not really sure what caused it other than perhaps playing with my lowbie friends too often...

    Playing with low level friends will not affect who you get matched with in solo queue. Most likely case is a lack of other players in your level range 30's being in queue at the time.

    It annoys me, too. Matchmaking isn't very well executed right now. However, I think it is understandable since the player base isn't LoL-sized.

    Really?
    I remember playing on a level 4 matched up against a group of 3 in their mid level 30s, but this was at like, 3am in the morning.

    These restrictions were not turned on prior to the June Update.
