And how does it contribute to matchmaking?

I read an example somewhere that read something along the lines of a Silver can get matched with a Platinum if their MMR is similar. I thought that can't happen because of the divisions?

Cheers guys

So how can a silver get matched with a platinum if they have the same MMR?

League Points is just a wrapper for MMR - MMR is your skill number that is decided from a number of resources. However, if you dodge your promotion continuously but still win then your MMR will continue going up and you will be matched with higher people even though your league isn't correct

mmr = matchmaking rating
the oce mmr is off balance as we have few players , and after a short while of trying to make a game , the system will just chuck anyone into the game

MMR is similar to what elo was before, an arbitrary number that determines the kind of players you will be playing against when you use matchmaking. It is separate from the Division you are in.

For example: If you are Silver V and your MMR is placing you consistently against people of higher Divisions, you might find that you skip a rank or two the next time you succeed in your series. e.g. You might jump from Silver V to Silver II.

In short, your division is your placement on the ladder of players. Your MMR is an invisible number that determines the kind of players you play against. If you're MMR is much higher than the average in your division, chances are you will move up a decent amount if you keep succeeding in your series matches.

If your MMR is the same as the average in your Division however then your progress will be much slower i.e. one rank at a time and as you slowly progress up Divisions your MMR will slowly increase too.
