Solo ranked matchmaking is a joke!

I lost 3 games in a roll, because they had tank and offhealer (sorc joining as dps) and we had only tank! How is that fair when we had zero chance of winning those games? Where is the fun when you know they win by setup and you can't do anything?

Is there a chance a single Dev to care about this and fix it?
BioWare stole my knock down!

Fair play, unfortunately, is not something the devs were taught as children...

Children of today weren't taught it, either ... Sadly ...

I know this is petty of me, but on the off chance you just don't know...it's "on a roll" and "in a row."

I'd rather no matchup occur if the proper roles couldn't be put into a single group.

Not playing is better than playing a match with a foregone conclusion.

lol if it were only that...long queues just to get teamed with afkers, leavers, muppets or stardamons, crappy geared noobs or arrogant hardcore players in an environment broken ELO gains/losses, incorrect Hybrid-Cheese class matching, heaven for self sufficient classes, etc, etc...

It's not funny of course but...
if you had had good DPS you could have killed that sorc. 3 DPS on 1 sorc, all interrupt him, he just can't heal that burst, no AOE heal.

Well guarded healer means 50% damage reduction. Sorc healers have interrupt immunity which last like 10 secs i think so they do get some heals off which in ranked make all the difference. If they can get out their channel heal and crit it is 9k heal. When it is a game of suitability that makes all the difference.

And dont say pushbacks or stuns because resolve bar fills up pretty quick and they have barrier breaker and normal cc breaker so they have a grouped ranked setup which is completely unfair.

In all honesty I have beaten it in solo a few times but that was only because we had a combat sent on our team who we could sit on the healer whilst we downed another dps. A shadow would be ok for it but unless you have one of those classes that healer will be a happy healer.
