Puzzle Battle Pairings

First, I liked it that I was paired up with strong players. Now, I don't like it a lot. How am I supposed to keep my streak if I keep on playing vs 2600-3000 players? It goes like this usually: I beat 2 or 3 of them, but then I stumble, and lose my streak again. If you look at the leaderboard, I am #6 and there is such a big gap between 6 and 5. It's practically impossible, unless you spend hours and hours, but not everyone has that time. 

From time to time, I should get paired up against 2200 or 2300 players too.

Now more people play it, I

think pairings are now random.

yes I agree but I believe that pairings are more or less random now. also, rating doesn't mean that much as the puzzles at the beginning are just too easy. it has more to do with mouse speed and connection etc.

why is it fair that 2000 players get to play you? you should be playing people around your rating

I cannot get a pairing. Seems like very few are playing.

Why?

I think it is best to play people of different levels to prove you can keep beating lower rated players and get cracks at beating higher rated players.

you don't get it. We need streaks to go up on the leaderboard. The only people that don't need streaks are people like jimis. Sometimes you need a break. You can't keep on playing 2800 titled players

I was paired up with GM Ray Robson @SpicyCaterpillar.

I think it’s rather random. I’m 2100-2200 and I get people as high as GM Andrew Tang and as low as 1500s.
