Testing happened over the weekend and we learned a lot, not just about our matchmaking system, but about testing. Let me first apologize for those who took part in for not properly preparing you for a testing mindset. The key as we said before is this is a first pass and that means things will be wrong and bonked and you did a wonderful job of helping us find them.
This also includes other features we didn’t mean to have tested and weren’t ready (new UI and horrible crash sounds.)
We also released everyone into the wild without a set testing scenario which also contributed to some of confusion in game.
We appreciate all the help so far, but we’re not done yet. The next testing session is tentatively scheduled for Saturday March 29th, but we are making sure we can get the next build of matchmaking in before we set that date. Those who signed up for matchmaking test either through the form (included above and here) or the Steam Experimental group will receive an official notice the moment we set that date in stone.
See the results after the jump.
