  • Status of matchmaking

    I'm glad the recent update (on 10/5) attempted to fix some of the big issues with matchmaking but some major issues are still present. I can completely understand that the higher in rank you climb the less there are pool of players to match with. But being matched up with someone 3 tower levels above you is extremely frustrating.

    As a level 10 I am frequently in rounds with level 12-13. And its an immediate loss. The only chance of winning is if they disconnect or by some miracle your squad is the perfect counter to theirs. One round I had a level 8 gunner and they had a level 16 gunner. There's no victory there just extreme frustration.

    Trust me I don't mind losing at all- its part of the game. But to constantly be matched with people 2-3 tower levels above you is an instant loss and honestly drains all the fun out of the game.

    And by no means am I ever ranked with tower levels 7-8 that would be too unfair =).

    Love the game but this needs to be fixed. Badly!

    Glad to see I'm not the only one having this issue. Matchmaking is a joke in the game, all they want is your money. Pay and you'll level up and beat the player who didn't pay. If they didn't want your money they would've addressed this already. Its common sense that someone 2 Turret levels above you is going to have an advantage.

      The matchmaking is soooo bad. I've reached Gold 1 and cannot get any further and am stuck on 2600 points. I reached Gold fairly quickly winning most of my games but now am facing players whose card levels are way higher than mine, players in some cases should be in Gold 2 with the highest I've played having 3112 points and I'm on the brink of un-installing this game. This game has so much potential but is completely broken. While I'm on my soap box........why does it take so long to get a Titan on the field, by that I mean you know at the 3 minute mark you can get Titans so why when you let your resources build up to the required amount it then takes a further 4 seconds for you to able to pick and deploy meaning you are a further few more seconds til it arrives on the batle field whilst the opposition bang on 3 minute mark drops in 2 Titans??!! BROKEN!!

        Kirby The Destroyer Trust me, this is NOT a pay-to-win game. Unless you were there for the fiasco that was the addition of parts to War Robots a while back or you've played something like Vega Conflict before, you REAAAALLY don't know what you're talking about if you're saying that winning in TFA can be swayed more by a wallet than skill. I'm an F2P, which means all of my cards have to be earned with blood, sweat, and time. Lots of time. But even though it takes me a long while it's STILL possible for me to get BT or Ash or any other card in the game and level them up the same way any paying player would. TFA doesn't have premium content that gives one player an edge over another, it just allows paying players to get regular content sooner. They don't even have premium aesthetics!

        Theologian The problem you're hitting isn't so much matchmaking as it is the fact that you've gone exceptionally high for your card level. Congrats! You've won so many battles in such a short amount of time that your cards haven't had time to be leveled up yet. Do some casual battles to get your cards more XP that way you can step your game up and prepare to go to the next level. You see, matchmaking doesn't care about what level your cards are, it cares about your win rate. If you're doing well, you'll get more trophies and be matched against players with round-about that same trophy number regardless of how weak your cards are. That means a skilled player with low level cards (like you) will start encountering poor players with OP decks pretty quick. It also means you'll be more vulnerable to "seal clubbers", or skilled players with good cards that intentionally lower their trophy count so they can stomp weaker players for the lolz. Just make sure to do your casual battles every day and save your gold up for titanic caches in the shop. You'll get there, just be patient is all.
