View Full Version : Upcoming Matching Changes!

We are making a few modifications based on player feedback that we hope will improve future events and create a better experience for you all.

Guild matching: We are tweaking a few configurations with how guilds are matched. We expect these changes will achieve 2 goals: to create better matches and increase variety of the matches. Before, there were a few particularities with the algorithm that would occasionally result in very strong guilds being paired against very weak guilds, as well as some guilds battling the same rival guild over and over. We hope that our changes will create more fair fights as well as reduce the incidence of repeat matching.

While we can't reveal our "secret sauce" for matching guilds, we can say that this new system will take into account average guild strength, the number of guild members, and the number of event points your guild has earned, as well as a few other factors, and as always, some degree of randomness.

Any insight into repeat match ups? Still at 3?

Thanks for letting us know in advance there will be changes, and a vague idea what they will be.
