Competitive video games are unique in that they offer an international field of play. Unlike soccer or football, video games let you play the best in the world without having to travel, creating an international dialogue of play and growth. For Splatoon 2 players though, the current matchmaking system hinders that exchange of ideas, a ificant hurdle for an already small scene.
Is it just me, or has anyone else been constantly thrown into one-sided stomps in Nintendo online games like Splatoon 2 or Mario Tennis Aces? I get losing is part of online games, but back to back losses where your team stood no chance to begin with? I've had more balanced games in Overwatch xP.
And other online games over the years. Losing streaks happen. It's frustrating, but while Nintendo's online isn't what it should be, it's not really to blame for the win-loss of players. Sometimes you just get bad luck.

Take a break and do something else. Frustration often le to playing worse which can lead to more losses. Heavyarms55 But you could still blame Nintendo for those matches, as you can those other games. Why am I, in Splatoon 2, a level 28, going up against 90's?
There should be something in place to prevent such a possibility. Frustration only took place up until me 3rd loss, it became funny afterwards since I couldn't believe my luck would be that bad.
I haven't played any other Nintendo games online, so I could be jumping the gun in saying "Nintendo" as in "everything" has garbo matchmaking, but this forum post came from a place of rage. Kinoen I do understand how you feel. However level in Splatoon's case is separate from rank.
You could literally lose your way to level You could lose every single match and still reach it with enough time investment. Unlike rank, your level doesn't drop. If you are getting matched up against 90s, either you're doing really well, or they are doing really poorly. But another factor is people online. The game will try to pair you against people with similar. However if there aren't enough players at that level, it will pair your with higher or lower skill opponents to keep the wait time between games down.

Another factor is if you are playing with friends. If you are level 28 and your friend is 90 and you your friend, the game will use his or her data to match make. In reverse if your friend s you it will use yours. Other games have their own things, but similar systems are common. Hearthstone uses something similar, in Splatoon friend matchmaking to your rank, there is another hidden value ased to you that helps dictate matches.
It's why sometimes you could be rank 4 and match up against someone in high legend. Heavyarms55 So like Overwatch's leveling system, however, even losing your way to that high of a level still puts them ahead of someone who's level 28 in terms of game-play experience. That's what I have a quarrel with, the game "trying" to find games for me, is doing a terrible job. Aye, I have the same compliant for those other games to, so I tend to stick with games where I know I can always do something and mitigate the amount of stomps I receive.
Kinoen Trust me, I do understand and agree it is an imperfect system.

I encourage you to take a break for a bit, blow off some steam doing something else, and give it another chance. I once got so frustrated with Hearthstone that I had to quit for almost 3 months, but I still returned to it one more time and found I could once again enjoy it. Sometimes it's best to just take a break. Heavyarms55 I planned to, like before I started this thread, I wasn't playing, but I thank you for the advice regardless.
I have not to much hope in the next time I play being any better, if only for the fact I play with sticks as opposed to motion-control, another gripe I have with Splatoon which just adds onto the matchmaking.
BumpkinRich I don't know a way to do it in game but in the Nintendo Switch Online app you can find detailed statistics. Kinoen Ranked mode obviously separates players by rank, so some degree of skill-based matchmaking level is inherently built into the system. Turf War is a bit more of a free for all, so if you want something more focused and streamlined then the Ranked modes might be more up your alley.
You could also try experimenting with motion controls.
Which game mode do you want to play?
It won't fix the matchmaking, but it might put you at less of a disadvantage in general. They work in conjunction with the sticks aside from vertical aiming so you can use them as much or as little as you like. Edited on Mon 25th June, by Maxz. I have noticed this with Splatoon 2, and it's even worse than you've mentioned.
There were several matches I played where they had a bunch of players under Lv. I don't think they're taking level into at all with matchmaking, they really should split up the players so the skill level is even between teams. Made it irritating to grind to Lv. With Aces, perhaps it's just my nature but I really don't mind being paired up with higher rank players.
For some reason I like some of these matches more, so I guess I like torturing myself. Likewise, there are other tips you can learn by playing people better than you zone shot serves, best ways to use zone speed, special shot counters, etc.
Edited on Mon 25th June, by Judi. Currently procrastinating on: implementing virtual memory and synchronization.
Currently distracted with: Mario Tennis Aces. BumpkinRich I don't think so, Nintendo is very behind with practical online features. Maxz Thats a shame to hear, since Ranked, you would expect "try-hards" and Turf being for casual game-play I tried using motion controls. It's way to "shaky".
Nintendo’s new, fresh, off-the-hook multiplayer title has a few interesting de choices.
But I don't think there's that much of a difference between 10 to I personally wouldn't mind that. When its a huge enough gap like 28 to 90 is where theres a problem. Aye, I more or less agree. I just don't like the HUGE gap in points, like under 1k vs. Though its more for Splatoon then it is for MTA. Tell that to your racket. Ha ha, Tennis pun. I often see players at level 50 and beyond using gear unlocked at level 7 or 8 and even occasionally the starting Splattershot Jr.
But it can be frustrating because they will have clothing that is already fully unlocked and leveled. Judi thats just idiotic in a competitive game!
You're basically invoking a reworded version of "git gud noob". Kinoen There's no such thing as 'much better gear' in Splatoon. Marginally better gear is more accurate. But more specifically, I'm only going to use my best gear in Ranked. Kinoen are you playing the ranked mode?
Map rotation? friendlies? we pick the most needed upgrades.
Otherwise it doesn't matter. I suppose if you only want to play against people you can beat you'd be complacent being not gud.
Are you happy being bad at things? I don't mind it since its a nice explanation rather than a couple words. Kinoen turf war isn't ranked so I guess I don't see the complaint.
Levels are not indicative of skill as you can level up to max and never win once. If you were experiencing this issue in ranked mode I would sympathize but ranked mode does a good job of matching you with other ranks similar to yours. Your rank will rise and fall with your skill level, wins and losses.
