Update: Improved matchmaking and interface changes
Today, on November 4, a fresh update was installed on the game server. You will find matchmaking improvements, interface changes, bug fixes, and much more.
Matchmaking (Template system)
• Added match templates to matchmaking: the whole queue of players is now being processed and the most interesting match is selected on one of the many specific templates . More about the new system:
— Templates are made in such a way that there will be players of different roles in the match. In addition, the composition of the battalions will be taken into account, not just their type. Thanks to this system now there will always be something to counter the opponent on the battlefield, so the match can be assembled from players with different levels which should reduce queue times.
— The longer a player is in the queue the more templates are considered for him. Initially, the system will pick up 5x5 matches. If the waiting time exceeds the allowable threshold, the 4x4 match will be collected, then — 3x3. If there are no suitable opponents in the queue for a long time the system can collect a match with a team of 2-3 people against solo players. There will be no selection of matches with an unequal number of participants (4x5 for example).
— If a player quits the game, he is automatically excluded from the match-making.
• Notification of the silver storage now appears in two cases:
— the storage starts to appear in the warehouse;
— it is time to collect the silver.
