Hello fellow DPG members,
We are busy tweaking the matchmaking and trophy awarding systems for you!
We are starting with the implementation of modifications to the matchmaking system, where we will be placing more weight on your trophy score and less on the power of your team.
Previously, matchmaking evaluations took 50% of your trophy score and 50% of the global power of your team.
The recent change alters matchmaking evaluations to instead take 67% of your trophy score and 33% of the global power of your team.
These changes do not affect Leagues. The top 3 Leagues will continue to make evaluations based 100% on your trophy score.
We understand that in the short term this will make it difficult for some players to get an ideal match as they move to a score that reflects their current level of progression. However, that difficulty will be temporary and will result in better overall matchmaking in the long term.
This change is part of an ongoing process to perfect PVP balancing. Each time a change is made we will evaluate the impact and will communicate any new ratios accordingly. We are excited to follow up with more improvements in the future!
