HOTS would make a great case study on how not to design a matchmaker

Just saying placing 3 people with 30% winrate on 1 team while the enemy team is stacked with people who range from from 50%-70% (not grouped btw, all solo q) is absolute trash.

Placing 3 tanks on 1 team with a heal and an Abathur, vs a team with 1 heal, 1 tank, 1 solo laner, and 2 ranged assassins (1 of whom is Tychus) is absolute trash.

List goes on.

This game has the worst matchmaking i’ve ever seen in 20 years of playing games.

This implies hots even has actual matchmaking.
