AWESOME game, plagued by weird matchmaking
Especially since the seasons began, matchmaking has become unbearable.
I used to be league 2 and my true level should be league 2 or 3.
Since the reset, I'm stuck at league 7 and I'm doomed to play ultra boring games against total noobs on both sides. Whenever I manage to get into a league 3 or better game (one in 10), the opponents disconnect right before losing - the host migration always fails, and I always fall back to 7. Very nice.

Worse yet, premades. Pemades teams often start off against bots and grind before anyone joins, making it impossible for the connecting players to win. Premades should only be allowed to play against other premades.

I guess that Awesomenauts will always remain an "arranged team" kinda game as long as these problems are left unresolved.

I agree with you completely. When I play with my friends, and we start as a team, we play with bots for 2 minutes after which we will only get league 1-2 players premade teams (2-3 players) . We are league 3-3-7 and the players we play against are always league 1-2 I KID YOU NOT!
It's really annoying that you can't have a casual game, always playing either against much to easy bots or against much to hard players.

Needless to say that I had 22 games played and entered this season in league 2 (now league 3) and my friend who had 200, entered league 9 (100 games later, league 7)

One more thing, when I'm playing with bots, it often says "we found a match with more humans" but I will never go there. Wanna know why? because more humans means I will have bots team-mates and 3 human enemies so F that advice.

Trust me, you don't want to get to league 2.

All L1 and nearly all L2 players are unskilled. They all just abuse upgrades like frog's ice cubes and leon's crits. More often than not, they're also on a premade team, eliminating any chance you'd have at winning.

Agreed, Although playing lower league players can get a bit dim, when playing league 1-2 guys it just becomes a clusterf*ck of "breaking" the game, and rage quitting.

in my experience, the best steady league is 4-3, most people works as a team altough not always, you don't have as much quiters as in minor leagues, most people aren't ♥♥♥♥♥, premades aren't common and some matches can be really intense and fun
