Here is the story: Four friends and myself just prior to the S3 patch decided to play an SR Normal game. Though all of us were level 30 three of the players had only in the last few months began playing PvP. This is reflected in the total wins per player: 281, 250, 67, 59, 36.

This is who we were matched against (I am not making this up): 2179, 1529, 1381, 1328, 503 wins per player. Plus they had ranked teams as well. Needless to say we got hammered (though we held out for a little while :) )

This is NOT a QQ thread but one inquiring as to what other players here on MOBAFire are experiencing as to the state of 5v5 matching making in the current season and if they improved it at all.

My matches amount to stomps, at least in solo-queue. One team stomps and the other team gets stomped. I rarely see close games anymore.

Matchmaking also matches you based on your hidden elo, even in normal games you have a hidden elo. However, the range of players you get matched up with are wider in elo range than ranked, I hear.
If I helped you out, +REP me ^_^
