Titanfall new matchmaking bad, find the good stuff
I'm not saying it's objectively better or worse than the first game.
And the inherent problems with only some players owning DLC maps made everything worse. We found and deployed quite a few changes from studying that data. So even if you backed out and searched again, it still took us too long from your first match to get you something challenging.
DLC maps being free helps, but that's not all there is to it.
I'd been wondering about this. I aint exactly an FPS master, so my aim isnt particularly good normally, but it just goes down the drain entirely if I have to use a controller.
In the first game everyone got multiple titans per match.
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. This will allow us to better place you with similar players and give you more challenging matches.
This is also the first time a game has made me question if I should actually get some better peripherals and a monitor to see if that might improve my skills. Skill slides around more than many people realize, as you have hot nights and tired nights and hand the controller to your friend to play.
I know certain people really don't like the changes from the first game at all, and I can totally understand this because those were my initial feelings too.

Lessons from Titanfall 1 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. At least with the mouse I can hit stuff.
Yeah, I was being pretty vague because I haven't spent enough time with the game to form a coherent conclusion as to why. I found that matches formed much more quickly, with better skill groupings, and with games that were full much more of the time.

The game is such a blast on the very rare occaision that a workable matchup happens, but the vast majority of the time I just find it unplayable.
Early on, as part of supporting the first Titanfall, we captured and analyzed a lot of matchmaking times, skill adjustments, and match results. You still need to earn anything beyond that. The game is very, very good even if I'm bloody horrible at itHabbo dating So if you were at the bottom of the scoreboard on the winning team, we may bump your skill up, and if you were at the top of the scoreboard for the losing team, we may bump your skill down.
Since we kept players in the same match until they left, we were stuck with old decisions that we knew were no longer good, but we could only fix it when a player backed out and searched again.
