Today I tried to stream some 1v1s again, but that only destroyed my mood. Streaming noticeably detracts from my attention (I'm always better at tournaments) which was combined with 3/7 played games where I had a win chance of less than 10%. (The other games were around 50% win chance)
It's completely understandable that players want to hop in when they see me play, but could you think of a way that we could improve the situation such that one isn't stuck in Godde's toy position for the evening when they're the only guy in his elo range? Outside of streaming I'd just wait a bit for someone else to get matched, but that's no solution when one wants to play continuously.
In my case you could probably just tell me to git gud so I can have a fighting chance against top 10 again, but what about other players?
One thing I could imagine would be for the Matchmaker to look at e.g. the last five games of a player and then try to give the player matches that even out the win chances. The downside would be that if you're the strongest player online (or the strongest player overall) you'd have a harder time finding matches if there aren't multiple people to take turns in getting bashed. What would you think about this?
