ok, if you can not see it with your own eyes I'll explain.
Team 1 with 882 ip the one that less, frankasti is a good gvg player and everybody is t8 minimum
Team 2 with 836 ip the one that more, one guy with 686 when u cant enter arena without 700ip and nobody has equipment better than t6
So the problem here is the softcap. Arena are accessible from 700 ip. But with the softcap you can go up to 900 IP (like yellow zone?).
- having a hard cap instead of a softcap (800 ip minimum tho)
- minimum IP required should be 800.
You can't really match people according to IP:
because it would make the queue longer, and because it would take a lot of time for a slight improvement (since IP isn't relevant in most cases).
because people switch gear in arena (like your 600ip dude).
Also having 8.x gear doesn't mean anything in arena (except that you famed atleast 5mil).
Hardcapping IP is IMO not a good solution since that means that fight will be on a lower IP (and any PvP situation always imply different ip).
The 2 main problems of arena are:
- premades (it has been improved in nimue)
- queue time
Sorry if we cannot see it with our own eyes. Damn people on this forum.
The soft cap is perfectly fine, I play every mastery with 0 spec and manage to do it. Go one trick death givers/dagger pair, carry 1-2-3 queue and stop whining.
edit: 1,2,3 queue is much easier than 5 man queue, if you and your friends queued in 5's with that gear its your problem not theirs. If this is not the case the chances of the teams not being ''scrambled'' is quite low.
