Let’s be blunt, trophies are a stupid match making system. Anyone can intentionally lose, drop their trophie count and ruin a lower ranked player’s day.
To be clear before I continue, match making is the logic that finds an appropriate opponent for you. It is not the ranking system to give out rewards etc.
I suggest match making should be based ONLY on the dinosaurs you choose to battle with. Why? Because that’s the only thing differentiating you and your opponent in that moment.
Each player should be given a hidden match making score when they choose to enter the arena. This rank is a result of the following variables:
- Dinosaurs levels
- Which Dinosaurs (epic, legendary, unique, etc)
A weighted average could be used to determine if a level 20 raptor is fair to verse against a level 16 stegodeus. These waiting will require some analysis but the principal stands. Your opponent should be determined by the dinosaurs you bring into the arena.
This will not only make match making more fair, but it will also allow all players to have fun using any dinosaurs they enjoy playing with without having to worry about a idominous Rex murdering them.
Please Ludia, consider a dramatic overhaul to your current match making system. Its really disheartening when you love the game and spend hours each enjoying hunting Dinosaurs only to jump into the arena and get slaughtered by higher level dinosaurs.
And just to add, the arena is not simply an extra feature of the game. It’s a core game mechanic for gaining in game currency and DNA and inventive to go out and hunt more dinosaurs.
Please let me know what you guys think of this idea?
