As I've posted elsewhere, post Steam launch, the back end team will be taking another look at matchmaking logic and seeing what we can do to try for some improvements. I'm sorry you had some challenges in the T3 to T4 transition. I can agree, that it's not a "slam dunk" until you get a few important modules on your T3s to be able to complete better against the T4s that can have experienced, well organized captains.
I also suspect that once we have a larger player base with Steam and additional languages, most T4 players should be moving into Legendary matches where battle bonuses should drive higher xp and credit gain than vet matches (even if they perform well). That will free up Vets for T3 and newish T4 captains to have room to breath.
So to clarify, the intent of Greybox currently is to address the issues with matchmaking? Why I ask is that it sounds almost like you are counting on player numbers to increase, and believe this will resolve the matchmaking issues. I do not aggree if that is the case, teams will still be created unfairly if the issues with the actual matchmaking are not addressed?
If the intent is to always prevent unfair matches by evenly splitting the players according to rank, skill, modules etc, then I am all on board with that. I am craving fair challenging matches. It is incredibly depressing to hit the tab key and see 4+ lvl 50 players on the opposing team, while I am the only one on mine. I know before the match starts that my team will lose. So why play the game if this is going to be the norm?
I am sticking it out, but if the team creation problem is not addressed, Dreadnought will lose me as a player. Not that one single player makes any difference, but I get the feeling that many others feel exactly as I do. The frustration I am experiencing has come to a point where I have decided I am not going to play nearly as much, or at all until these issues are addressed, and balanced.
Any information about the Dev teams plans to fix matchmaking would be greatly appreciated, something real, something tangible. Those of us who paid for a subscription, your paying customers, deserve to know what the real intent is.
