Multiplayer Matchmaking
  • Is there an algorithm or something that determines who you play against in the "start a new game" session?

    There are a few names I play against regularly (hello there sixtysixxray) but just prior to the patch I played several random games with players who seemed to be just figuring the game out.

    I absolutely clobbered them because of some simple mistakes they made, and I feel kinda bad about it.
  • The "algorithm" is very primitive right now. It tries to match you with someone near your level, but if it doesn't find one, it's very possible to get matched against someone with much less experience.

    We know this is not ideal, and adding a real ranking system with smarter matchmaking is on our list of features we want to add at some point in the future.

Howdy, Stranger!
