Great news. Thanks guys! Faf is getting better and better.

Check out my maps here:

I ask you to show the pool of cards a few months before the release and their number! This should not be a decision in the silence of a small group, without universal reaction and criticism

4v4/3v3 tmm talk was always around for the last 6 months

queuing with a newbie to show him the beauty of tmm and meeting tagada be like:

Amazing work!

Not entirely sure if a unique rating for each of the two 4v4 queues makes sense, but I guess the similarity of the modes, or lack thereof, depends hugely on map choice.
Regardless, increasing the deviation for the overrated globals (like me) was a very smart move!

If anything we will find out if enough people play both modes.

But I imagine that knowing how to properly build a paragon or mavor is more relevant in one mode than the other, for example.

We are sorting out the maps for the pool. Upon completion of the draft I will be posting it here for feedback, just as we do for ladder and 2v2.

This is absolutely fantastic, might challenge Age of Empires 4 for me.

@blackyps said in 4v4 matchmaker is just around the corner:

  • Share Until Death is enabled - keeping ACU snipes as a viable option to end the game.
  • more 10x10 and less 20x20 maps - keep the ratio of 20x20 lower for more relaxed play
  • Unique Rating

I hope that the 20x20 maps in this pool will be similar in playtime range to the 10x10's in this pool? It would be a shame if the average game time deviates too much.

Playtime is not something you can really control. I have seen 10x10 maps last longer than 20x20 and Vice versa, unfortunately. In fact, just about any hilly plateau i have played I set aside at minimum 45 minutes as the gameplay is very “turtly.”

Just wanted to say thanks to all involved in the Matchmaker development. I’m really excited for this.

Please see this thread for that very request, Robustness:

Why we have to wait always three minutes even when enough player are waiting, will this be changed?

There is a small waiting time to enable creating the highest quality games possible.

When there are more people available then better balanced games can be created.

If there are 4-5 ppl waiting, and there is a good quality it could just start immediately, i don´t see why it should´t.
Just because next loop could get some 0,% better quality?

CoH matchmaker 2v2 starts immediately too, when quality is balanced.

The only advantage, you have 3min to go piss or do stuff.
