Matchmaking update round 4

36 replies 1791 views Edited Jan 30, 2014

Thanks for the continued feedback on our matchmaking - we appreciate everyone who posted their results in the last thread and we want to let everyone know that we continue to monitor these threads closely.

 

What we're doing in this update is a change that should hopefully create faster matchmaking times for most players.  We've adjusted our geographic criteria for most of the matchmaking stages to return matches that are closer to your location.  In theory this should result in finding a match that meets the ping criteria more quickly.

 

As with any change to matchmaking we need to test it in the real world, so we'd love to hear your feedback:

 

What city/town are you in?

 

Does it take longer or shorter to find a match than before?

 

Are there times when you can never find a match?

When's the next patch coming? It's been so long.

can't wait for those SAR and flamethrower buffs!

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

Since no one around these forums seems to post any useful information other than redundant one liners and complaints, I'll start with the actual answers to the OP.

 

What city/town are you in? 

 

Los Angeles

 

Does it take longer or shorter to find a match than before?

 

EDITED: IPlaying a handful of interrogation DLC games (around 10), there were a couple of instances where it seemed to take longer than before to find a match (one time I had to back out and search again).  This was around 5:30-8PM PST.  Nothing bad, however I did encounter a few lagging matches.  

 

Are there times when you can never find a match?

 

Not yet, however there has never been a time I couldn't find a match.  I have been playing interrogation DLC only (which should be one of your main questions)

I haven't had time to play since the update, and I'll post relevant info when I can.  In the meantime, this place could certainly use some light.
