@stormlantern said in Matchmaker Pool Feedback Thread:
The different options are awesome. Thanks developers!
But as (hopefully) more useful feedback/opinion:
- I dislike the ranking systems with the divisons. It seems there arent enough players to really work well. And also the skill level of people is only moderately correlated with the rankings on there. I also dislike how the original rankings were removed from the client.
- UI buttons for the pools are a bit amateuristic, both graphic wise and with labelling. The UI in general (for instance the UI around having a party to play with and inviting them etc.) seems to lack intuitive design, which can demotivate new casual players looking for a quick game with friends.
- The distinction between 4v4 fullshare and no share is useless imo, since playing with no share invites pretty dumb play. Also the no share que doesn't get filled anyway and the option only clutters the screen.
- I have no complains map-wise. I think there is a nice variety and well chosen maps.
The divisions system is entirely up to the development at this point, and is something that will likely stay as it is quite similar to what other games use. No one shows someone's ELO rating without digging.
The UI can certainly improve, although I think for the intent and purposes of this thread this is the wrong place to raise such concerns. I would suggest creating a post with feedback about the client itself. I will mention it to the devs, though, see if we can improve upon it.
4v4 No Share is pretty much going to get removed. I was going to run a poll to confirm this but it is pretty clear that is not necessary.
Glad to hear it! There is not a lot of maps to choose from - sadly - but we do seem to have enough to keep things interesting.
