Btw: I noticed that this seems to happen only when i play soloq, so thats why i think its my trustfactor even tho others don't get a notification that my trustfactor is low.
People are somehow abusing the system and boosting their trust factor. I have 300 games, nearly 10 year acc and will get matched against guys with 0 lvl steam accs, how? And yeah, I am never toxic in games, so this also cant be the reason.
Toxicity doesn't lose you games, bad players do.
I only play with really shitty rl-friends, so i topfrag every game which makes my opponents report me regularly. my friends already get red warnings in the lobby cuz of my trustfactor.
we get easily obv cheaters in every 2nd - 3rd game.
everything got fucked up since the game became f2p and the once brilliant prime-system basically removed.
one of valve's employees tweet about them having some issues with trust and that they are working on it
I have no idea how the trust factor thing works, it went down bit by bit with every game for me last year around summer. Queuing with a friend was no problem, then after first match it warned my friend 'trust factor is slightly lower', so we wondered wtf but kept playing, after that 'significantly lower', and low and behold all we saw was cheaters everywhere.
Normally I don't bother with MM 'cus, well, it's MM, but it's the best resort when I've been drinking but still wanna play and not fuck up my actual stats. But when there's cheaters roaming around everywhere it ruins the whole thing. No idea what fixed it, it just sort of fixed itself on it's own, can't remember how long it took though.
Good luck and hope it's not going to affect you for much longer, it's a pain in the ass.
