  • Matchmaking needs to change

    I have 1 friend that I always play this game with, we both just platinumed tonight and probably won't be playing much anymore.

    The main reasons are because there are too many glaring issues and no real incentive to continue.

    The game needs a Ranking system BAD! 90% of our games consist of getting a 3rd teammate who does nothing but shoot threes without even attempting to pass(even after they've been stopped in their tracks by an opponent trying to steal), an AFKer, or someone who doesn't attempt to play defense and only chooses to act on Defense.
    While there is a way to report these players, the community seems to be full of them and I don't see the devs being able to handle all the reports.

    I'd really like to be matched up with players of my own skill level, even if that means my win% drops significantly. I'd rather play a good game and lose, then end up winning by 1 point in a match that is essentially 2v3.

    Another reason the game needs a ranking system is that there is no real feeling of progression once you've platinumed. Even having the ability to buy new outfits with Coins would be something to look forward to. As is, coins are useless to me. I have 1 5 prestige PG and a 4 prestige C and PF.

    Long story short, the game feels pointless without anything to look forward to and wading through the pure nonsense that is the playerbase makes most of the games feel like a chore rather than anything resembling fun.

    SERIOUSLY. This is the most annoying thing about this game tbh... how is there no ranked matches? Some days I play 10-15 games before I get a decent teammate when facing randoms.

      I feel the best way to fix the matchmaking is to only pair random teams up against random teams and full squads up against full squads. Problem solved, that would completely balance the game right there. Think about it, what happens 90% of the time when you're rolling with randoms - and you get paired up against a team of players you've seen plenty of times before? You get stomped out... I shouldn't have to break my back playing with randoms just to take a L. I know a lot of you will say "just party up with people" (and I do most of the time) but I don't always want to sit & wait for other people to be ready to play... Sometimes all the other people on my friends list are in a squad already. I'm just saying, if they changed the matchmaking to squads vs squads and randoms vs randoms, it would really be an incentive for people not to feel like they have to party up every time, and actually win some games they play with randoms.

        Actually that's basic requirement. Another easy requirement is level and win rate. Match level 20-30 together, 10-20 together and 1-10 together. Have a requirement you can't do 3v3 until you're level 5 or something. I know there're exceptions where low level players can be really good, but if simplicity is what we're going for, then this will be the simplest and most efficient filter. You can start incorporating win rates for those exceptions.
