Sorry about the aggressive title. Also, thank you for taking the time to read this during work. So the purpose, the essence, of this blog, is that my eharmony subscription is ending this month. This is my second stint on eharmony. Two dates where I was probably settling, compromising and giving in, just to go on dates. Not at all, they were perfectly normal, fine people, just not the match for me.
Of course on live, this is a good thing. While games don’t usually start in 3 seconds like they used to- generally speaking normal games what I usually play have a decent match ups- I find myself challenged very often, but rarely totally outclassed. Of course, this has led to an increase in queue times, usually about seconds, maybe a minute or two if I am premade with friends.
However on PBE, this system appears to be still in place.

Closing the matchmaking loophole in competitive multiplayer
We recently reported on why dynamic queue sucks and Riot have attempted to fix some of the issues we addressed. Using this new system you can climb the ladder with any number of teammates. A key feature of the new system was the ability to pick a primary and secondary role. Meaning you are pretty much guaranteed to get one of the roles you selected.
This feature was meant to reduce arguing over roles in the lobby and match players to the appropriate roles. Although it all sounded good in theory when Riot released it, major problems started to arise shortly after its release.
Sep 29, · Now I’m stuck in the matchmaking Queue. The timer is already at 20 minutes and it hasn’t found a single game yet. Exiting the queue doesn’t work as it just tells me it’s “receiving data from server” until it gives me an “unknown error” and everything is as it was before.
Matchmaking is the existing automated process in League of Legends that matches a player to and against other players in games. Contents [ show ] Details The system estimates how good a player is based on whom the player beats and to whom the player loses. It knows pre-made teams are an advantage, so it gives pre-made teams tougher opponents than if each player had queued alone or other premades of a similar total skill level Riot Games Inc.
The basic concept is that the system over time understands how strong of a player you are, and attempts to place you in games with people of the same strength. As much as possible, the game tries to create matches that are a coin flip between players who are about the same skill. The basic priorities of the system are, in order of importance: Protecting new players from experienced ones.

What does my rank mean? Players classify the ranks into tiers. Generally, players exhibit the same behaviors as other players in their ranks, with some exceptions.

Casual Play[ edit edit source ] Casual Play mode matchmaking includes a new player pool. Players are initially placed in a separate pool, allowing them to play exclusively against other new players. After a certain period, players are introduced into the main matchmaking pool. Pairings are therefore affected not only by each player’s rating or rank, but by which other players are currently awaiting matchmaking. For example, different times of day often attract different types of players, with certain times typically featuring a slightly more competitive pool of players.
Because of this, each type of ranking is entirely accurate only for that same quality of population. Such variations are not fixed, and may vary by day, time of day, or in relation to calendar or game-related trends. Because wins and losses will ultimately result in an adjusted rating or rank, such variance can also lead to a yo-yo effect with pairings. For example, a player who normally plays Casual Play mode in the mornings may try playing at another time of day, only to find the competition more fierce.

Not really sure why I did it but it was an interesting experiment nonetheless. Got the last one yesterday afternoon so went on an opening spree last night. Ended up getting 5 legendary skins and a legendary pile of gold. A couple of emotes and a highlight intro.
If they continue to ruin other players’ experiences, they’ll enter lower-priority matchmaking for a number of games. While in low priority queue, players will experience queue times that are 5, 10, even 20 minutes longer than a player who hasn’t left games.
How does Matchmaking work right now? Once in the pool, the system starts trying to find matches, with the goal of creating teams that are both made up of players with roughly equal skill and have a fair chance of winning. Determine strength If a player is queued alone, the strength is determined by his personal matchmaking rating referred to as MMR from here on out and number of wins for that particular queue. If the player is queued with a pre-made team, the system will adjust the MMR of the team accordingly.
In most cases, we have found pre-made teams out-perform teams composed of unconnected players. Players have a separate MMR for each queue, each of which evolves independently from the others. Determine eligible opponents Initially, the system will only match players with similar MMR. As time passes, the system will very slowly broaden the MMR range it considers acceptable. New players get some special protection and are usually matched against other new players, though this may result in a longer delay before finding a game.
Build a match Eventually, the system will assemble a group of players with comparable MMRs and put the players into a game. Why don’t you include other details, like how many kills or deaths I had, to determine my rating?

While autofill helped reduce queue times generally, we still see rare edge cases of long queue times at all tiers. Often, it’s a situation where a player doesn’t have a long enough queue time to trigger autofill, but then gets stuck in queue waiting anyway.
