New Party Matchmaking

Improved Party Skill Rating

Taking into consideration the feedback from the community, in September 2016, we adjusted the new Party Matchmaking system.  

  • You can search for Competitive games in a Party with anyone in your friends’ list, regardless of their current skill tier.
  • Instead of averaging each player’s skill together in a Party, Party Skill is a weighted average of the skill present in the party. In this case, a “weighted average” means a blend of the average and highest skills in the party.
  • When skill ratings are updated after a match, the new Party Skill rating will be used to prevent players from ranking up faster by teaming up with lower-ranked friends.

As always we welcome your feedback and look forward to seeing how you like the new system. Enjoy!
