2 separate ELOS.
If you're at 2k elo in non-ranked play and the level 28 is, assuming the pool to get to 28 is large enough (it is, only takes 3 games) then its a fair matchup.
Don't show them mercy if you realise they are lower level.
Don't look at the game after and base judgements off level and number of wins.
Look at their score and look at the teams and look at damage dealt and everything that happened in that one, solitary game, that's all that's relevant and that's all that you should be using to improve, learn and get better.
Don't look for excuses, look for their weakness, flaws and look at your own failures, misconceptions or mistakes, along with your teams possible flaws or errors, think about strategies or communications, items, roles or ideas that you could have mentioned, suggested or even performed yourself and above all, win.
