Thread: Random team vs. Arranged team?

  1. #1

    Default Random team vs. Arranged team?

    Do we know if AT vs. RT games happen in the Beta right now? I would have thought not, but two games I've played made me think otherwise:

    1. In one game I got into by selecting 2v2 RT, one opponent left. The remaining opponent remarked that while he would ordinarily play on, he would leave in this case because he wanted to keep playing with "that guy" (the one who left)--but this makes no sense if the two opponents were paired randomly.

    2. In another ostensibly 2v2 RT game, both opponents were named "BadFishx." So either the matchmaker miraculously paired two players who had the same odd name, or they were friends. (See attached screenshot. The fact that the final scorecard somehow omits the fourth score--my score--is another oddity.)

    I've been opposed to the idea of RT vs. AT in the past, but these days I'm not so sure. True, all things being equal, arranged teams will have an advantage over random teams; but I wonder B.net's modified-Elo system might be able to compensate for the discrepancy when forming matches.

    Team 2v2 can get paired against random 2v2.

    Yup, while I feel this is acceptable for beta since
    there just aren't that many players available, come release the two hopefully won't be paired against each other.

    This should definitely not be the case in release; random team will be a joke if they allow arranged teams into the mix.
