  • [Program] Idea for Matchmaking

    Hi guys,
    i know this kind of topic has been discussed way to much, so i went on creating a simple application that does, so to say, the matchmaking:

    -50000 Random ELO's between 50-2000 are created (whereby ELO can be matches won or whatever).
    -It trys to find players in a Range of 20% difference from the first player that is used for the match
    -If a groupqueue occurs, its calculating the mid ELO of those to average out weak players, which results in harder games for people queuing with sth like : 10,500,300 , which is fine to me

    This app is not tested, it may hang and crash, there are no checks whether there are enough players. Don't click the Matchmaking button to often, meaning that you should not let the playercount get below 10000 or sth. to be save


    only Windows



    MM is broken, this is an idea to improve it.

    This version does not support searching for another stack of players, groups will always matched against solo queuing players, which is to be implemented.
    Any thoughts or ideas might lead me to make a proper program out of this
