Matchmaking is way too biased towards matching monsters with hunters from the same region. Considering the small player base, this isn’t fair for players who happen to live outside the US (and possibly Europe) – it just adds to the already enormous queue times for monsters.
While I search for a monster match and watch Evolve streams on Twitch, it’s extremely frustrating to see hunters with the same rank as my monster getting matched with either (1) the same monster player continuously or (2) monster players with an entirely different rank or (3) no monster at all. [Obviously I’m referring to people streaming on the same platform as me]
Region-biased matchmaking also means that I cannot ‘host’ a lobby when playing as a hunter because it results in infinite wait times. Getting someone from the US to host finds a monster almost instantly.
Can matchmaking please be changed to be more flexible with matching players from other regions? Preferably it should be removed. It would result in quicker wait times and help match hunters and monsters with similar ranks.
