View Full Version : Empire Rank Matching

I play very casually. I have only attempted Empire a few times. The problem with the way it is currently set up is very anti new player.

Someone with little to no multi-player skill gets gobbled up in a blink of the eye by better hard core players.

Nothing wrong with uber players. But there needs to be a rank matching system in place to prevent over whelming odds.

I am sure there is something in place, but does not seem to work. It seems that after a set amount of time, to avoid long ques, it places a higher ranked player in the pool.

This should not happen, it makes learning the multi-player to hard a curve. Instead of adding a vet player, add a hard AI.

The scripting is in place already for link-dead AI take over. Just add the script to the matching system please. Once a player ranks up and learns the maps etc against like skilled players, they rank into the better players mor smoothly.

At least that would be the hope.

Practice makes perfect.
