Contests - Matchmaking feedback
General feedback or suggestions for Quickmatches and matchmaking.

It's truly nuts. Unless there's only about 100 people using this site, it makes no sense that I would be matched up, at the Gold Level no less, against the same V+ who beats me...every single time I play. It is a David and Goliath scenario that makes me question the very validity of the site.

Please create a much larger $20 contest for the Masters next week. There will be 5-10x more people wanting to play and the contest will fill accordingly. In the future, you can open registration for the major contests earlier so that the larger pool sizes have time to fill. If you open the same size contest as last week it will fill very fast and many people will either not be able to play or be disappointed by the contest size.

Definitely agree with this. The quick matches are a great idea but Yahoo is not making an effort to control abuse. The same users are repeatedly putting out fake lineups. I'll play elsewhere but its too bad their customer service is terrible because I really like Yahoos interface.

Totally agree with this. I have 3000 wins or so and although it might seem sort of high, I am getting placed against people who have 65K-85K wins. Not a level playing field at all.

tired of playing vets with 2-4k wins in a gold match because they put fake lineups out to lower avg score seems like everyday i have to play a pro
