What is QM match making?

General Discussion
I was just placed against not 1, but 3 bruisers while there was only one on my team. Is it broken again or is this normal?
occasionally broken. It often gives you or your enemy 3+ specs on a map that offers splitpush. Ppl here on the forum keep saying that's just qm and relax or get used to it, but i'm crying everytime i'm seeing such teamcomp. Once i've played a match with no healz with chogall vs tych and raynor. It was rly fun. TBH things like this happen not that often, but it still hurts.
It's QUICK Match. Emphasis on the QUICK.

Sometimes you get wonky matches. That's the price for getting to guarantee the Hero you play.
Like 10 threads a day on this forum... “QM didn’t give me a fair match! what’s wrong with this game mode?”

Uh, it’s not draft and you’re drawing from a pool of people who are available to make a match right that instant with the exact hero they want to play.

Ppl want their experience to improve, to be better. That's why they're crying. If you are not expressing your opinion, then how would blizz know that something not that fun?

I think people have been expressing for about 4 years on QM. It still exists as it always has.

You hit ready on QM, you are accepting you have no control over the comp and... the match will start quickly! That’s fine by me.

If you think matchmaking should put people closer together in skill on teams, that’s a different discussion. But comp? Please. You get what you pay for.

You don't know if it's changed or not. Minor or bigger tweaks to the system definetely happening from time to time. Blizz just not overly vocal about it. And the fact that you implying that qm in 2014=qm in 2018 is just ridiculous.
1 side got ktz, alarak, abathur, tyrande, anubarak, my side got stitches, artanis, murky, tass, stukov. Play on Hamunara map.
So what you expect from this kind of match?
1 side got 2 mage then full of CC. They can either anubarak stun first, then bad skill ktz even can E,W,Q,R on time then follow by tyrande stun. Don't forget there is alarak that can silence or charge in on time. While another side almost come without any dmg. 2 mages on 1 side while another side no dmg at all plus low cc compare to another side. They can simply even it abit with either ktz or alarak to 1 side of team then anubarak switch with either artanis or stitches then it become balance a bit(at least got chance to win on both side)

Nothing ridiculous about what I said at all. I’ve been reading the forums for about 2 years. The threads are all alike. If you think QM random comps suck,the answer is to play a draft mode. Blizzard puts “preferential” rules for comp into QM matchmaking, but the primary focus is to start matches quickly. Hence, unconventional comps. THAT is exactly the agreement for hitting ready on QM. Yet, thread after thread, where people fail to help themselves, Blizzard is to blame for QM. Astounding.
QM matchmaker just needs more rules in place to just balance the freaking roles and sacrifice a little bit of the que time. To many games where one team gets a specialist and the other doesn't (therefore major advantage in some cases). 1 team gets assassins with a tank and the other team is all bruisers and tanks with no damage. Team comps like that should never be matched. It isn't rocket science.
it's broken normally and it's normally broken
Blizzard Quick Match mean "Quick win" or "Quick loss".
You can know that when it starts loading by show up the lineup on both side.
eg. KTZ, Alarak, Anubarak, Tyrande, Abathur vs ,Tass, Stitches, Stukov, Murky, Artanis in hamunara map.
As you can see 1 side almost no dmg dealer at all while another side got dmg plus a lot of CC

I play since cbt and i remember there was a time period when qm was perfectly balanced as much as it could get and que times were a bit longer.
