Matchmaking for Quick Match

So, quick match is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable modes in the game. You get the same exciting pvp experience as in championships or UT, yet without the same competitive undertone since it doesnít matter if you win or lose.

Quick match is a great place to test out different fighters, try different strategies and play-styles, and just mess around and have fun. Itís alluring to players of every skill level, from hard core competitive players, to complete newbies.

Problem is, because so many different people - from so many different skill levels - play quick match, itís very common that ďhigh levelĒ players get matched with someoneís whoís literally played the game 3 times. Iíd say that 80% of my searches match me up with a complete newby. Iím talking, they start the fight with 3 consecutive spin kicks at the air, show no clue how to play, and I quit immediately (itís not worth wasting the 30-45 seconds to finish them).

Now, I DO like the idea of having relatively open matchmaking for quick match. By no means do I want to see a super strict matchmaking system, like it was at the beginning of UFC 3, when everyone was waiting like 10 minutes for a fight. I think that in an environment like quick match, where people arenít in ďtry hard modeĒ, itís good to have players of different skill levels fight each other.

But there needs to be some level of matchmaking... at least to prevent situations where experienced players like myself are getting matched with people who just bought the game. Again, more than 50% of the players I get matched with are so unaware of how to play, I just quit immediately because itís not even worth player. Iím all for playing inexperienced players, but they have to at least understand basic concepts like ďdonít throw 30 consecutive headkicks then gas myselfĒ.

I propose that quick match incorporate a matchmaking system, where players are categorized into four different ďtiersĒ. These tiers would be based upon their performances within quick match, and/or their leaderboard ranking.

And I also propose that players have the ability to control how restricted (or open) the matchmaking would be in regard to their own personal searches. So if Iím in tier 2, I could choose to fight anyone in tier 1-3, or I could simply choose ďopenĒ, allowing me to get matched with anyone from any tier.

I pretty much dodge anyone who picks Bruce Lee (and sometimes Conor) because they are bound to be beginners.

I wouldn't implement any overly complicated matchmaking system for quick matching but perhaps have a system where new players get prioritized with each other until they have played enough to move onto normal matchmaking. You could for example require a certain amount of wins.

EDIT: This could also be actually hidden from players so it doesn't discourage anyone.

I prefer it the way it is (aside from it showing your win/loss record at the beginning).

Maybe there could be an option just to search for ďskilledĒ players but it would be basically just a filter anyone can select if they want to.

The idea is that good players who want to play other good players can just play each other but in a casual match.

Re: Matchmaking for Quick Match

Youíre basically asking for ranked. This very type of thing caused many players to quit Modern Warfare and Fortnite and there was huge uproar about it. If you want to play people your skill, thatís what ranked is for. The only difference I see here in that you wonít get points for the fights but those idea of what youíre proposing is exactly what ranked is there for. The better you get, the harder the fights will get and not everybody wants that because itíll eventually turn into a competitive play ever match which I certainly donít want if Iím trying to chill and just play casually. Iím not always in the mood for a chess match. It can be made into a filter but why bother with that when you can just play ranked which has the very system youíre asking for?

Just play ranked. I ONLY play quick match because I like to play as many different matches as I can when I actually have time to play. I win like 7/10 and when I get beat it becomes a fun rivalry (unless they don't rematch)
