This is what I encountered in Tier 18 (couldn’t be bothered with scoring points with benchlord last season). Yes you read that right, tier 18. Thankfully I just about managed to win without losing anyone and Igrene getting all the kills.
This is a common misconception. Your current tier does not determine your matchups, but rather your team’s scoring. Even if you were in T1 you’d be matched up with a team like this if you brought your exact same team.
Matchmaking is based on your team score and your opponent’s team score, it doesn’t matter what tier either of you are in.
Low tiers are easier because you can get lower scores and still promote.
What the other two said.
If you got +10s, your enemies also get most likely +10s.
And Tier 18 isn’t really low Tier though.
Ah, I was not aware that it worked that way. I suppose fair enough in that case
