Star Wars Battlefront 2 is one of the most anticipated titles of the year but there have been some controversies regarding the game that might spoil that. Having that said we have some new details regarding Star Wars Battlefront 2 Matchmaking. It seems that matchmaking will not only be based on skills but other factors as well.
There seems to be a new Design Director that will be looking into the progression system and the credit system in the game and you can read all about that here. We also heard that the refund button for the game has been removed but that information seems to be false.
Dennis, one of the Design Director for Battlefront II was asked about Star Wars Battlefront 2 Matchmaking. The question that he was asked is as follows:
As a father with young kids, the two things that I lack are time and money. For all players like myself, with the vertical progression of the star card system how can we progress in game and stay on EVEN footing with those that have hours upon hours to grind daily, and those that are willing to throw down $$$ on loot crates for power increases via star cards and hero unlocks?
The following is what Dennis had to say in this regard:
Mainly through matchmaking. We take into account not only your gameplay skills, but also inventory and time played, when we match players together in multiplayer. You should not ever be matchmade together with players who are much better than you are. Ultimately your effectiveness is going to come down to skill, not the Star Cards that you have. If it doesn’t feel that way, we’ll see it on our side, too. Our data will tell that story and we’ll make adjustments. We’re looking at results from millions of matches and will be continuously rebalancing items, unlocks, and matchmaking to create a fair, fun experience for all of our players. Beyond that, all Star Cards have maximum values regardless of how they are unlocked.
