That weird ELO system...
I have to tell that popularity of Zoroark decks have decreased strongly. Buzzwole, Lycanroc and Lucario GX made it a bit nightmare. Also 3 to 4 Guzma in every deck, more that the 2 that were run before.
Last regionals are being dominated by Espeon/Garbo and Buzz/Lycan mainly. The Goli/Zoro, Garde/Zoro and others can still go far but not as before.
And a lot more Fighting is coming in next set!
On the other side, it would be weird that, so much people asking for a non GX/EX format so often, could be resolved just not playing GX strong decks and no one realised
So yes, the online seems to be kidding you because speed of matchmaking is over the equality of ranking. If not, you could be waiting 5, or 10, or 30 minutes to get a match and that would be a lot more boring.
Although Meta is ruled by some decks, don't care how high you are in ranking and how GX strong your deck is, game can always match your Buzz/Lycan or Lycan/Zoro against a Volcanion EX or Passimian deck, that you won't ever find in a competitive environment.
I trust you when you find awkward opponents but, we also have to believe that is not made on purpose but is like the ELO, the matchmaking and programming system works. And that's the Online itself.
