Why do Some Argue Against Skill Based MM?

Purples do not want anyone on their own team who is not the same skill level as they are because the lower skilled players drag down their win rate. This is a very old argument that has been being made forever. They want teams of purples and nothing but purples so they know they can rely on their team mates for support. What they do NOT want, is what you seem to be proposing, which is equal numbers of all colors on both sides. That makes for unreliable teams, and unreliable teams are bad. There is no point to changing matchmaking at all if you are still going to mix players of all skills on the same teams, because it doesn't resolve the issue of higher skilled players complaining about how the lower skilled players on their teams cause blowout losses. Nobody wants to finish a match where the bottom 4 or 5 players on their teams do zero damage, and players with a 55%+ WR do not want players with a WR of 45% or below on their teams. That's the whole basis of the argument for skill based matchmaking.
TeriyakiTanker: And again you are dodging my question. You stated that it was obvious that SBMM would increase wait times. Show me some proof. And in all honesty I am not purple, I will never be purple, and I don't speak for any unicums, but I don't see a single unicum in this thread saying anything close to what you are saying. If you just admit you don't know anything about what will happen to wait times with SBMM I will just move on.
