    It has one of the better matchmaking systems imo. Probably didn't help that you were playing at midnight?

    I don't mind it.

    Veteran or better is a measure of how long you have played the game, not how good you are at it...

    I'm an "Expert" but my Rank is High Silver/Low gold due to being shit at flying.

    So I'll often get matched against 'Rookies' that are better than me. (but have the same rank, because that's what matchmaking is made with.

    Made a montage of me playing the last couple months. They just brought out the anniversary update where you can get free unlocked crates or 'Golden Eggs' for playing. Very fun and cheap game to play while listening to music.

    Cheers! Diamond 1 is the highest I've climbed in rank. Play a lot of casual with friends who are lower ranks.

    Play a bit of ranked with a friend who is champ 2 - I think it mostly comes down to speed and hesitating less as you rank further up.

    Oh yea Diamond's after plat and was what I was thinking of as I hang around diamond 1 - 3. I've broken into champions once but didn't stay there too long as I tend to play it a bunch and then take a break to play other games for awhile.

    I've found that working on my positioning + maintaining speed (i would stop and watch too much) + little things like making sure I always land on walls nose down to get back into the action faster has been really improving my game lately

    Still been playing this a bunch. The rocket pass comes out next week. Baiscally similar to Dota's battle pass although there is a free version as well as a paid one in RL.
