I am plat and have been for a while, but am constantly matched with champs in freeplay (nearly every game), why is this?
because freeplay is a bunch of whiny quitters mixed in with some good people and a bunch of smurfs. im a high champ 2 and my unranked mmr is 1562. it's ridiculous, I should never be that high. but it's also broken, so it allows people who faithfully play freeplay to climb without getting better.
Unranked is an absolute cess pool of people that don’t care or try, or freestylers.
It’s a separate MMR, I’m champ 2 and my unranked MMR is like 950 and I play against all kinds of ranks of players, some that completely try hard and some that leave after one goal.
Unranked is a separate MMR, but it works similar to ranked MMR, if you have a pc, AlphaConsole can display MMR for all playlists
I stumbled across with a lot of Champs on freeplay as you call it, maybe because people don't usually care for their ranks over there and just play it for fun
Grand champions and pro's... pro's less often though.
