Live Update to Matchmaking

73 replies 1702 views Edited Sep 3, 2013

We just pushed a live update that should be active in about 10-20 minutes that will make matchmaking take a bit longer but improve the overall fairness of who you're playing with. It's ping based and shouldn't really make matchmaking take longer than 1 minute or so but we wanted to give you a heads up. As always let us know what's up and how your dogs are. Thanks!

It's ok if it takes a bit longer.  We are are use to waiting.  Just look at your DLC announcements.

Oh hell yes! I was just about to go back to Crysis 3 tonight. Now, I won't.

Im sure there will still be occasional lag, but im hoping for a lot less since I shouldn't see as many 2 bar players.

Thanks ND.

Well, this was a surprise. Definitely didn't see this coming.

What I worry about is that the ping matchmaking will greatly split the player pool by never searching for people outside of your region, and even if it does, the ping matchmaking will still find laggy players due to nobody else being available, but now with increased wait times.

I guess I'll just need to give this a shot, but I never really had any issues with matchmaking lag in the first place unless my party leader lived in a different country or something similar.

And I don't have a dog, since you were wondering how he/she was doing in the OP.
