Ranked Matchmaking Patch--sounds good!

4 posts in this topic

Apparently people are calling this patch the "No Bronze vs. Diamonds" patch...because apparently Bronze have been getting matched up against Diamonds.  Ubisoft will introduce a hard cap so that it is impossible that a Bronze would face a Diamond.  Sounds like it will be time for more Ranked play!   :s1158:  :s1217:  :s1219:  :yellowgun:

"Upcoming Ranked Matchmaking Changes

Hello everyone,

We will be tweaking the Ranked Matchmaking in order to improve the experience for you. To do so, we have changed the relaxation parameters for ‘Skill Rank’ so that you are matched with players closer to your rank. This will be deployed during a maintenance on Tuesday February 23rd:
 

Xbox One and PS4 at 4AM EST / 9AM GMT (Time Zone Converter)

PC at 10:30AM EST /15:30 GMT (Time Zone Converter)


The estimated duration for maintenance is 30 minutes. 

The situation before this update: Relaxation is currently occurring too quickly, with big ‘Skill Rank’ relaxation increments, with no maximum differential between teams. This means that high skill teams could get matched up against much lesser skilled teams.

New situation after this update: Relaxation will occur quicker, but with smaller increments and with a maximum differential cap between teams. This means that you could see an increase in matchmaking queue times, but the match up will be better balanced and of better quality.

Thank you for your understanding. Please share your experience with us after this update to tell us if you feel it has improved.

- The Rainbow Six Development Team"

Most of my ranked matches I've had some very talented people on my team who were way out of my league.  I have yet to lose a ranked match.  You read that correctly: I am undefeated.  However, my kill-death ratio is a hilarious low 0.9--which is way out of character with my win-loss record.  This (well, this and good luck) explains why several players I've seen seem inordinately talented compared to my rank.

As much as I love this game and encourage everyone to buy it, I will continue to say, that eventually this game will be ready for a retail release. :) Right now it is about as ready as most modern games. There are no major problems left and it is very playable and very fun.
