So it’s been three months since we introduced separate rooms feature to jinteki.net. Now that the dust has settled, I’d like to hear your opinions on how has this feature has changed your experience with the site.
The initial goal of this change was to help players with certain expectations find more satisfying matchups/opponents. So players with similar expectations end up in the same room, playing each other. Furthermore, by abusing the default effect, we ensure that most of undecided or not-reading-titles players end up in the Casual lobby.
That’s how it was supposed to work on paper, but have we achieved these goals? I’d like to discuss the following:
- Do you find that your chances to find a satisfying opponent improved compared to 4 months ago? (ancient history, I know)
- Have the increased wait times for finding a game discouraged you from playing on jinteki.net?
- Suggestions for improving the matchmaking situation? (often proposed ideas are automated matchmaking, ELO/TrueSkill system, player personal white/blacklists, feel free to discuss these or problems with them)
