I asked two of my online friends and they can't play. I guess a lot more people have that bug. So annoying Matchmaking is ignoring me
I'm really sorry Starbuck, we're gonna get to the bottom of this as fast as possible. There are a lot of variables at hand, but it's sounding like it could certainly be MMR related. Increasing the player traffic could help, but we'll have to see. Hang tight while our teams investigate and get to the bottom of this ASAP!
"we will implement a temporary matchmaking separation between Recruit and Veteran / Legendary fleets"-refered to the patch notes. I noticed something odd with that. Since the matchmaking is supposed to pair up players within the same fleet category, I saw that during the scoreboard, every player has the same rank? but different tiered ships?
Say like I am Line Captain III and I am using a tier 3 ship in veteran fleet, the others in my team are also Line Captain III but some may be using tier 2 ships or tier 4 ships etc and in occasion 1 or 2 players might be in recruit fleet.
I do not suppose the matchmaking is actually trying to find same ranked players to pair up against as opposed to the veteran fleet or ship tier category?
Perhaps this is something to look into? not sure if i contributed much there.
