  • Arena Matchmaking.

    Congrats, you have managed the impossible! Arena matchmaking is worse than ever.

        I'm aware that the matchmaking is not performing as well as it used to. This has been pushed to the dev team. The GM team is waiting for an update.

            Thanks for the update

            I didn't know about losing, so thanks for that tip too, makes a mockery of the streak system though

              There are players who are trying to have a streak and keep a streak why lose a few when you shouldn't have to

              The game should go back to the system they used in beta and before the first big update. The matching system then was workable and ok for everyone. The system now sucks completely. I get a guy with a full t4 max golden team in my easy spot all the time. It's not the matching that's the problem everyone is having its the fact that We fight the same twenty to thirty players all the time. There are players in the arenas that I have never fought ever before and players who aren't in the arenas but part of the twenty- thirty I always get show up. (I know this cause I've been in an arena at the start of it with only 30 ppl in it and got a guy I know was sleeping and wrote him and asked if he was in the arena and when he got up said no I'm not going to do that one) revert back to the system we had during beta new is not always better.

                everyone is trying to have strreak but what do you think happens when you get 150 (random number) wins in a row?surprise surprise the system gives you more difficult opponents and it makes perfect sense that it does that. losing sometimes is useful as lavep said. about the second part what you say isnt happening and if it did happen once or twice it was a bug.we only get players that entered the arena.

                  Agreed with lavep, you have to lose some battles which allows the arena matchmaking to give you weaker opponents which you can beat and reach the might rewards. Keep in mind though, super arenas are not won in this way, because if u can't win a super arena and get stuck by stronger opponents in all three slots, it means your deck is probably not strong enough to get that rank reward.

                    I've been chewing on this for a while. Here's my current thinking.

                    There should be a pool of opponents for each arena tier (Challenge, Average, Easy). The opponent should be randomly selected from that pool.

                    Challenge Pool -- This should be everyone who is ranked above the player in the arena, but no fewer than the top 8-10 players. This pool would ensure that a player can steadily move up in the arena as long as they are active and there are weaker players ranked above them. Currently there are scenarios where a stronger player simply cannot catch a weaker player who is ahead of them because of matchup problems.

                    Average Pool -- This should be comprised of players who are ranked within 100-200 ELO points of the player, excluding the Challenge opponent. This pool should also include any players who are ranked above the player, but whose ELO is below the players. This is, again, to allow stronger players to move up in an arena. If this pool contains fewer than 20 opponents then it should be expanded to include the 20 players whose ELO is closest. The exact ELO boundaries can be modified as the player moves up in the arena to increase the challenge.

                    Easy Pool -- This should pool is comprised of all players weaker than the Average pool's lower boundary, i.e. whose ELO score is 100-200 points below the player's. It excludes the 2 opponents chosen for the Challenge & Average battles.

                    Finally, we come to Arena Guardians. These opponents should be randomly selected. The current system commonly leaves players ranked 1-3 with an arena guardian for their Challenge opponent, while players ranked below them may go dozens of matches without seeing an Arena Guardian as an opponent. This gives too great an advantage to the players who simply started the arena when it first opened. Once they become highly ranked they have an enormous advantage over the other players.

                    Cheers,
                    Rosen
