I've started playing GW2 again after a couple of years, mostly enjoying PVP. I started out in Gold Tier at 1250 Rating. There I spent a couple of weeks, until last week, matches suddenly became really brutal, and I dropped down to Silver within a single day (down to about 1050 Rating).
I've had big troubles climbing up again all week long, staying between 1050 and 1100. Most matches were complete onesided slaughters - interestingly, with me being on the winning and losing side about 50% of the time. If I lost, my team was getting ripped apart, not even reaching 200 points. And when my team won - I could have just rolled my face over the keyboard, it would not have mattered.
Then suddenly out of nowhere, today I had a 10 game winning streak, and now I'm up from Silver 2 in Gold again.
I really want to point out that I'm not complaining about my rating or class balance or anything. The problem seems that something weird was/is going on with matchmaking. The onesided slaughters are really no fun, not even on the winning side.
