Automatic matchmaking Mon, 03 June 2013 00:47
Apologies if this topic has been covered before, I did use the search function but to no avail.

As a new player it's quite disheartening to be matched against a 1700+ rated player and lose miserably.

Is automatic matchmaking, based on players rating a possibility? I understand it might be tricky with so few online (at least during the evenings GMT) but I'm sure there are M44 fans willing to play in a random scenario for a more evenly matched game.

Failing that at least include a players rating on the invite pop up so newer players can make a more informed decision before entering a game.

There is no automatic match making in M44 online (which by the way has a separate forum).

The dice and cards are a great leveler though. A good player can still be beaten by a novice (it happens often to me) when the novice gets the better dice and cards.

Ask the more experienced player for advice, or tips or hints. Most will share their experience with you to help you learn. Watch how they play, learn what works and doesn't work. I'm still learning after many online games.

Thanks for the advice Phread! I'm really enjoying the game, I should have stressed that more in my first post. I'll be sure to take your advice to heart.

I didn't realise M44 Online had it's own forum, perhaps one of the wonderful admins will be kind enough to move the thread for me.

Here is a link to the Memoir '44 Online Forum: http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/thread/?frm_id=71

It's not a big deal posting in the wrong one, so I doubt the admin will bother to move this thread, but future posts about the Online game will get more attention over in that forum.

Welcome to the game and may the dice always go in your favor! Cool
