Hello fellow DPG members,
Today we implemented a few improvements to player matchmaking based on recently observed win rates:
- Maximum search radius has been reduced to a “distance” of 200 points in all Battle Arenas. Note that these are matchmaking points, not Trophy difference: if the users have similar teams but high trophy difference, they could still be matched together.
- We now consider a player’s Strike Team strength in the matchmaking (and in the awarding of arena trophies ) until 6,500 trophies. Strike Team Strength considers all 8 of the player’s creature levels, rarity and stat boosts into calculating a “Team Strength” score.
- We give more importance to the user’s trophy count as one gets closer to 7,000 trophies. There is interpolation going from 50/50 trophies/team strength leading to 100/0 trophies/team strength at 7,000 trophies.
- As of 7,000 trophies a player is regarded as a top-tier expert, as such only the trophy count is considered (regardless of the Strike Team’s strength).
