Isn't there an underdog system, where wildly uneven teams have the SR gain/loss adjusted due to the unfairness? Yes, it's terribly when a 4K SR team plays against a 2.5K SR team, but it has to happen sometimes. There's no avoiding it, otherwise, there'd be situations where these grandmasters and top 500 players would never, ever find a game, making it unfavorable and unfun to climb to the upper echelons of competitive play.
The underdog system should be reducing the SR loss to basically nothing if you lose against a team with twice your SR, and the winners should be earning basically nothing for stomping the enemy team. That's how it should be working, anyway. It makes the matchup unfavorable for the top 500 team. They don't get "easy points", they get nothing, so they should do whatever they can to avoid times when they face plats and diamonds.
