    Its pretty good

    The only downside is the longer queues. I had some ridiculous ones yesterday. 400 seconds i think.
    Not today though

South Park's giant douche and turd sandwich spring to mind.
    As someone who has slogged through the HL queues this season, I don't mind the queue time.

    First of, this is easily wood league material looking at dmg done

    Second, I guess the 2 supports were queued as friends, which automatically messes up the system.

    and this...

    Zag intentionally fed and afk half the game
    Varian DC constantly and complained about sub 1fps
    Genji seemed completely new to the game/character

    Their team was a 4man and seemed more than competent. Talk about stacked.

    I also randomed. RANDOM.

    Chances of a fair match? Random...

    To be "fair" to Blizzard though, the match I had before this was just as stacked against my team Hero-wise, but we completely devastated the other team despite our Stitches complaining from beginning of the game. Sometimes I feel like I'm being punished.

    Long queue = shitty matchmaking. Are you satisfied with explanation?

    Granted a dota 2 game (used to at least) could drag into a 1 hour snorefest with constant push-pullback and "oh there is rosh in 1 minute" so a 5-8 minute queue wasn't something crazy to think about.

    You are doing it wrong, it's siege/siege/bruiser/sustained_damage/sustained_damage

    vs

    healer/support/sustained_damage/sustained_damage/ambusher

    And since you've blurred out the part where you can identify who-stacked-with-who there is no way of telling if it's skewed matchmaking or it's a 4 stack-related issue. We often get into unfavored matchups when queue shit like probius+valeera+genji+azmodan, since there is just one spot left matchmaking apparently flips out and breaks, giving us abathur and enemy get either a balanced stack of players, or a group with stupid pick like ours, or complete vinaigrette of heroes

    If you see a long queue you'd better to cancel and try again later, or go for a draft mode.
