We have just pushed live some much-requested updates to the Team Wars matchmaking system.
From now on, teams with a smaller number of players will be able to find matches more easily, as we are allowing teams to look for enemy teams that have more OR less players (previously, we only allowed teams to look for enemy teams that had the same amount of players or less). We have also increased the maximum difference between the player count of both teams.
This will increase the amount of eligible opponents for each team, which will result in faster matches. However, it’s worth noting that the lower the number of players in a team, the lower the probability of finding an opponent.
As always, we will keep monitoring the matchmaking data and will regularly update the configuration, to make sure that we deliver the best experience across the board.
Thank you for your patience and for all the feedback provided so far!
