Matchmaking and Ladder System Improvements

Blizzard Entertainment recently identified and addressed three issues that will ensure fair matches and an enjoyable ladder system.

Improved Matchmaking for Teams
While the matchmaking system as a whole is looking very strong, one area we identified for improvement was matchmaking for arranged teams that were still in placement matches. We found these first few matches for arranged teams were giving them an unfair advantage against their opponents.

The corrections we've made should show an improvement for many team players, especially in the sub-Gold leagues.
