  • Suggestion for loading match

    Of what I could understand the MatchMaking system works like that (specially for mmr):

    1) Checking player searching a game
    2) Create a bucket with same ping and average mmr
    3) If can't find, the ping + average become larger
    4) Trigger the ok status so player can accept the game
    5) If someone didn't accept => punish him and get back to 1 or 3
    6) Else go to the server and load doto

    Well... My question is why ? Why do have to wait one time for people to accept/refuse and then that everyone load the game or ... not !
    I saw that on HON, lol, starcraft etc...

    I have a suggestion:
    When people search for a match, put them on a temporary server that can partially load things for them (beside game id etc... maybe ?)
    When people accept they will already have loaded things.
    Transfert the data from the temporary server to the new doto server !

    And voilĂ  !
