Just some feedback regarding MM in T3 and T5

I have to play some R8 games. I REALLY would love to have an option to NOT join the game in progress if possible. Why? After long waits in queue I’m getting in situations like this (the whole team stayed in spawn for the whole game except that one recon and my ship…):

Or give me option when game is found to display actual situation to avoid joining combat recon for few seconds which is already lost and I cannot even spawn and have results like this:

This is a very much needed addition. Today I joined a beacon hunt game, and our team was already down by 50 points, and the enemy team was capturing the other beacon…

Those are good games by my books, since no destroyers…

Take a closer look on the left side of the first screenshot, thank you. Now take a closer look on the minimap, third icon from the top. I waited over an hour to get this game. As for the second map I would be surprised to see R11 ships in R15 battle,

I don’t know what they’ve done but quite a few players now have to wait 3x as long or longer for a match. There are enough players, there were at least 1000 in the tournament alone and that’s r7-9. Used to get matches easy in 0-3 minutes, now it seems constantly 3-10 minutes on my end. Same ships as before the updates, and matches aren’t that much better in terms of final results even if teams are balanced more optimally.

Ability to join in progress makes queue time much shorter, than it might be. Option to avoid unliked battle may cause ppl to seek simple wins, instead of playing.

Btw, hotfix for MM was uploaded today :slight_smile:

I’d like to see the pvp MM change from the past week is changed back.

Matches are back to predetermined nonesense with single players not having any effect on the outcome of the match.

Gathered over one evening after putting up with this for a week, all R10.

Beacon Domination is where the imbalance really shines as there is no killers/cappers on one side, only fodder and me.

What do i have to do to secure a win for the team?

Surely i can do something to get a win. Nope denied.

I dont expect that every single pvp match be totally balanced but i did not have to try for long to get this selection of images. Neither do i mind that while playing in R10 i have to play against R13 but its unfair to give me the same ‘weight’ in such matches.

Also in the last example i was not involved in the beginning of the game and yet still a triple cap, so it cant be just me. Seems as tho its an easy win/loss from the start depending which side you are on.

I’ll add more to this later with some wins and how ridiculous they are being won, only losses here as they are more annoying and less easily dismissed as n00bstomping.

I can confirm this. Played a lot yesterday in squad or alone, like >50 matches +/- (t5).
95% of them were one sided. No matter what you do, if the game is on your side: you can chill and shot half the time: still you will land on the top of efficiency list easly.

If the game is on enemy side: doesn’t matter how hard you try, there is nothing you can do to change the balance of the match. Even in squad, same behave. :expressionless:

Me neither _I don’t expect miracles, _since in a game with tons of different classes and different ways to fit a ship, the chance to get some balance are next to zero. But seems that the more they try to “fix” the MM, the more things become unbearable.

You should measure your e-peen befor making such statements.

As promised some wins.

This one is particulary silly as we have two R6 on the one team v predominantly R9/10. Triple cap and pretty much kept that way.

Followed by this late join team battle which ended 0-23. A total loss and no point in adding more players to the match.

Then another win, nothing special just team dominance through the match. I was the only one on team grabbing beacons. Enemy team all had R13 in lineup.

It’d be nice to claim epeen with these images but they are just stupid matches. Before last week i would have struggled to come up with scoreboards like this now its a common occurance, almost every game.

Match maker has not been so nice to me lately. I am barely playing now again because all I do is lose. Many times I get in the game and it’s over before I can spawn. Or its over within 45 seconds of spawn. Many matches I have joined and the captain is dead and the timer is up for the cap to respawn so I wait 5 to 20 minutes for a sure loss.

I have watched my W/l drop from a poor 1.07 to 1.03 in the last week. The only good thing to happen was the skirah cannon. I like that gun. If only my railgun would fire like than. With constant losses and hardly any chance to play due to mm maker joining me as the battle is over I can’t really enjoy it.

Check out this awesome match

The bottom half

Wth is this guy doing? (Got 21 points) Guy in our team has r8 destroyer, doesn’t use it, but means we get matched up with other destroyers and guess which ones are more effective? (Our team has no ships that are very effective vs destroyer)

Super match up, you increased match times for what?

13937918_608147469356918_219038725862250

Finally, a match that ended in close beacon points. The effectiveness points on the other hand…

I guess one plus is that you can now get games with 15+ kills…

or spawn into the enemy team and cannot do anything because everyone is spawning at different times

I notice a lot of games where people have rank 8’s because they qualify for a rank 13 match with their rank 10/11. Except there are only a couple of rank 13. It’s almost like you get 10-13 or 13-15. And in the 10-13 they all decide to use their rank 8…

It is almost like people are the problem…

Todays astounding example.

Just prolonging the inevitable it seems, didnt even end close for all that effort.

So what you are saying you would rather wait 30 minutes to get a 4v4 with equally “skilled” players instead?

I’d rather wait a bit more time and join a fight that isn’t already lost.
