  • should "Game of the Day" be more fair? 4+ days of a same game appears in 3 wks

    I've seen X hero siege at "Game of the Day" recommendation at least 4 of 21 days since the Halloween update. I do find this mod cool, but frankly speaking, I expect my mod to have some chance to appear there even slight, but the algorithm of repetitive selection quite make me feel hopeless.
    What's more seldom do players join games in "open lobbies" at the right side. Since the Halloween update my mod has experienced a severe depression. At past my game can be found some times from 10 recommended games, but now even though it can almost always be seen in "open lobbies", little new players find and play it, probably because people tend to be paralyzed facing too many options. Here is the new subscribers plot from Oct 11 to Nov 19 which can prove this:
    All in all, please polish your algorithm to make the recommendation more effective and fair. Thank you!
