RE: Noob matchmaker queue

@veteranashe said in Noob matchmaker queue:

I think there should be different queues for different things

Ladder as stated above, to find out the best players

Casual, to get more games like crazy rush and phantom and other fun games in for relaxing play, hidden rating

Noob, for reduced shock of ladder so new players can learn concepts of the game without pressure, a good example would be the stone age mod and correct maps, hidden rating

The solution is called Custom games and we already have that. You want to play Phatom, Astro, Dualgap ? Np. The solution is already there. Once you start treating them as casual game modes which they are then you can also hide Global Rating to emphasize that.
The rating will be hidden but still there allowing for balancing while reducing the stress and the hostility towards new and grey players. If you say that the host needs to see the ratings to be able to manually balance then I can just as easily say that they already do that with out seeing the rating or rather ignoring it since it's so bad and they manually balance based on their knowledge of the players.

RE: This game seems to have too many pointless weapons

the anti ground weapons on transports are so you can use them as ghettos, else labs would just shoot at anything.
Main practical use of these weapons (e.g. for strat, cyb gs,moonkey) is to prevent the units getting slowly crushed by a few T1 units. also sera and cyb frig+cyb destro aa shouldnt be on that list, since the combined aa of sth like a 40 frig 3 destro navy will win against a sizable number of torp bombers

RE: Hint in loading screen about how ping works

you are mixing up ping and computer capacity. It was pretty well explained, how ping doesn't impact the game unless it is over 500.
If the game is going -10, it's because some guy doesn't have a good enough computer for that. Kicking the 450 ping and making a -10 game speed going smoothly, is just a coincidence due to the fact that the 450 ping had a bad computer.

RE: Naval Balance Survey

If anything i think the opposite is true. The ratio of frigs to destro's in sentons is way higher than on any other conventional 20km teamgame map. Ofcourse you see more early frig action on beetles considering there are mexes to take and defend but it isn't to such an amount that aeon will suffer a significant drawback. Furthermore because of the chokepoints aeon destro's are even stronger there. Aeon is definitely in my top 2 navy factions for a map like beetles

RE: Naval Balance Survey

I dont see why aeon would be bad on selkie/beetles dance but good on sentons.

RE: Reworking the AA role of cruisers

Cruisers doing aoe removes possible micro potential from torps where you try to dive in to snipe 1/2 key units and get out because torps alwqys stack onto eachother

RE: Naval Balance Survey

The majority also thinks aeon is the 3rd worst navy faction. How about it? Time to give them a buff

RE: Reworking the AA role of cruisers

maybe having cruiser dealing aoe would be a good idea. Would buff them against Torp, while we can reduce the dps a bit to make solace more of a thing. Also they won't eat the air exp alive like they do now.
Sometime you nearly prefer having hover flak to protect your navy (at least your hover) than cruiser....

RE: Hint in loading screen about how ping works

well we designed the hints, as hints for the game. But it could be used for broader communication indeed.
