In other games it needs to look for more players on both sides. There is also a lot more players searching for matches in those games, opening up for the possibility to narrow the search window, which I’m sure is very usual. TRS took a lazy MM system and smacked it onto their awesome game, but it’s not THAT lazy. And they definitely wouldn’t lie about it.
Also, evolve is a team game when it comes to the hunters. Queueing solo, regardless of how good you are, will never guarantee you win, because you are so dependant on your team. So keep in mind that you might be put into the same party as the ace player of a losing team, or a retard player from a winning team, skewing your view on their W/L ratio.
That being said though, I can’t wait for a persistent and fleshed-out ranking system. The community needs it, TRS needs it, and Evolve definitely needs it. Without it, the current drop of commited players will keep on going.
