'Titanfall' Matchmaking Fix Will Prioritize Skill Over Speed
Among the areas of improvement in Titanfall 2 is its matchmaking, which should now be faster, make better matches, and generally be easier to understand. That's according to a blog post and video above by Respawn server engineer Mike Kalas, who laid out the various problems with Titanfall's matchmaking before explaining what's been changed. These issues cropped up in a number of ways. Players' skill ratings were updated match-to-match, but this was largely based on wins or losses and couldn't dictate what games they ended up in without that player backing out of a match. The game also did a poor job of communicating what matchmaking was doing, making it look like you'll be in an unbalanced match causing some players to back out during the process, creating more problems.
There is no ranked or casual matchmaking it seems and ranks are not accounted for either. What is up with this?? Is it because I'm playing the PC version and the player pool is this small already so I get matched up with the diehards more often?
The first Titanfall uses a pretty straightforward matchmaking system where we try to put players into a match or start a new match if there were no good spots to put them. By showing the teams being formed in the lobby, the process can appear chaotic and encourages players to back out and search again, which adds to the visual confusion. As well, when faced with matchmaking larger parties, solo players can be left wondering why the lobby is showing, for example, a 4v1.
