Awful matchmaking

Postby Thebeerbear » 22 April 2017, 16:06

Every few months or so a new player will come onto the forums and whinge about match making and they get told quite simply you go up against what is there. Which is fine.

Except I've just spun with a rather new 1200necro tv team and a 1600 chaos tv team. How does the 1200 necro tv team match up with a cd 1600 tv team!? Oh and my chaos team had a near identical record as the cd team!?

I can take losing. I can taking losing to teams with higher tv than me. I dish it out, I give it.
But clearly there is a problem with the match making...

Because there was nobody else around.

That sounds flippant, but it is the case: if the population is low it doesn't matter how matchmaking is done, you get what you get. Population on PS4 is generally very low relative to PC.

No, you don't understand dode.

The other guy was spinning with his high tv chaos dwarf team. I spun simultaneously with both my low tv necro and my high tv chaos yet the game matched up my necro team to his cds, rather than the more optimun match up of my chaos.

Not a question of the amount of ppl, just why it chose to match up 1 of my teams in a massively unfair game when I was spinning with another team that would have been more even in regards to tv and tv+?

Simultaneous spinning doesn't work properly. It's one of the things that would really help, imo.

Ah ok. Rant over then I guess.

Cheers dode.

How does simultaneous spinning work now? How is it supposed to work?

It should allow you to search for matches with multiple teams and select the best match for you. At the moment it does not appear to be looking with all the teams all of the time, and I've not worked out which ones it is using and at which times.

Do we know if the dev team is working on this bug? Do we know if it's something that intends to be fixed or if its a priority at all?

Right now I believe LE is the focus.
