You're Kidding, Right? (Destiny)

Also didn’t see any rank manipulation - just people trying their best to win.

This is the whole reason Trials can't have skill matching, otherwise people would derank to make it easier to get 7 wins in a row.

What is it currently? Are you matched by similar card performance? Like, if you have 6 wins are you put with another team that also has about 6 wins on their card? Or is it truly random like back in House of Wolves?

Up until this season, it was card-based... but that seems to have changed (at least in my personal experience). They removed the flawless pool (up until this season, as of reset on Sunday, you were separated out if you had already gone flawless for the week, but they decided that that was leading to people resetting their cards so they could farm lower-quality opponents), and one of the side effects seems to have been that there is no more card-based matchmaking. I was facing combinations of pretty much every value of win in almost every game this weekend.

I don't know how they're matching people.
