Matchmaking is MIS.ER.A.BLE.
- I join friend’s party. I am L25, he is L7. He searches for game.
- Takes well over 2-3 minutes to find a “game”
- 95% of the time, it only finds 1 single player, who is forced to be monster and we’re forced to have 2 stupid bots.
- Because of this, games always favor the monster in winning, and sure enough, he does. So it’s just loss after loss after loss.
This hasn’t changed a bit since Beta. Matchmaking was horrible then and it’s just as horrible now. It favors getting a game going, even if near-filled with bots, than populating it with actual players and ensuring there is actually a mind behind each player. It’s a frustrating experience that makes the rare times when the game has its highest potential OF fun (playing with friends), still an un-enjoyable process to go through.
I’d really like this to change. Use an algorithm that favors more people in games than bots.
