matchmaking +/- tiny problem? Not sure if wanted.

Post#1 » 19 Oct 2018, 12:01

So after the (welcomed) change discussed here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1679#p18066 now the matchmaking is offering opponents that have lower rating and higher rating, with an average of 50% chances.

Anyway it seems to me that different ghosts of the same player are picked, although both are in range of the active player.

Example from https://stats.gladiabots.com/player?&na ... ostMatches

we have mrchris (2355) that goes against chaosDMG's ghost at 2416, the ghost loses 12 points reaching 2404, still being enabled. Note that the chaosDMG's ghost has matchid 1273886 .
Shortly after we have mrchris (2392) matching chaosDMG's ghost at 2383 instead of picking the previous ghost (that is in range). The ghost picked is also "older" than the previous one.

It is not a big problem, as both ghosts are within the range (in this case +/- 100 points). The rating doesn't lie and both are hard opponents. At the end opponents that are close in rating are in any case tough.

Nonetheless in this way - at least for me - the matchmaking is actively seeking for a ghost that is weaker instead of picking the last deployed. A bit of "let's make it easier, ego stroking!" approach.

Is it wanted?

It is wanted by the modification you asked for!
The second pick is from a search on a lower ranking opponent.

Ok so also within the same player is going to pick the "lower rated" ghost, although this is older. Good to know. It was not exactly my idea but close enough. As I said, I don't see it as a big problem.

Hi,

for more than a week I have a problem with match # 1481981. When I try to run the match system logs the error. Last week I sent you the bug report.
Please do something so I can continue playing online.

tnx

Didn't get anything from your email.
Could you retry to report the bug? I need the logs to know the exact error.
