Matchmaking in Uncharted 3

64 replies 1383 views Edited Nov 21, 2012

We recently pushed a live update that changed up our matchmaking system for U3 Multiplayer. We know there had been some issues after the latest change so it works something like this.

 

geo-location and ping are HEAVILY weighted up front. We now look for people 75 ranks above you and 75 below you within a very close geo-location and ping  FIRST. We have 375 possible ranks in the game. As we look for more matches we'll broaden both geo-location and ping along with rank. Geo-location and ping matter most. 

 

Bottom line is the more players we have the better the matchmaking will be so thank you for your support. See ya online!

Thanks ND! Now it would be nice if you removed level based matchmaking completely because it doesn't work most of the time.

Has the liveupdate number changed?

Is it still 1.15.071 or 1.15.072?

Awesome news! A quick question. Why are they only 375 ranks? If you count the 75 levels before the first legacy, there would be 450 ranks. Is it because everyone in the 5th legacy is seen as the same rank?
