Question/s Re Matchmaking banhammer

  1. What is the purpose? You can’t see who you are playing so this ‘fix’ seems too late.

  2. Would the following scenario/s attract the ‘hammer’?
    A)Playing ranked 3v3 and a teammate is afk causing a difficult win or a loss. Next game you match up and get him on your team and decide to avoid the match getting locked. You search again and get the same mongoloid and back out again.

B)You search alone and get a game assigned, then your teammate comes online. You back out and then pick him up and continue to search.

  1. If the answer to either scenario is ‘no’ how will you distinguish this from whatever scenario you are trying to prevent?

ikr I’m pretty sure they fixed dodging.
I just wish I could check someones GT in game and see who I’m versus in the loading screen.

A) If you back out of a lobby after finding players twice within 60 minutes, you will trigger a ban. If you get teamed with someone that you do not want to team up with twice within 1 hour and dodge the lobby before getting into gameplay both times, you will receive that 30 minute cool-down.

B) This will only trigger a ban if you dodged a lobby before this within the 60 minute window. If you see who your teammate will be, leave the lobby to form a squad with them, and then re-search the same playlist without ever dodging a game previously, this will not trigger a ban. However, dodging another game within an hour of this will cause a ban.

The Key here is to not dodge.

I don’t think anything I described would be termed dodging

Thanks for the info. How do they know who triggered and how would they distinguish network issues causing it?

I think is kind of stupid, you can’t ser your opponent and if noobs were locked from ranked there’ll be less dodges.
Honestly, they should have implemented the hammer for people that quits un the middle of a game, that will both result on a bitter experience and screw your win ratio.

But the thing is there are people who legitimately try to derank people by getting into games and purposely go afk this makes it hard to solo que one of the best ways to rank up
its not even that the enemy team is highly ranked its just that you don’t want to be in a 1v2.

Network programming magic and stuff.
