Mission Difficulty and Rewards
on: September 02, 2019, 09:10:12 PM
I have played a bit the last few days (20 or so matches) and the handicap system is really confusing me right now.

the match I just finished I was MMR 43 and the team I was against was MMR 31 average. So it gave them a mission difficulty of 9.  (also had a match where there was no difficulty, and where they were at 21 these have to be  boring for the raiders and make the antag system a joke) I enjoy  playing Antagonist but 4 vs 1 with no AI help and Bosses with 10HP are boring for the Raiders, and pure frustration for Antags.

Is there a plan to fix this? I try to stay as high of an MMR as I can, but this handicap system basically says "Ok, it's time for you to play a 4 on 1 game, where the raiders can kill a boss in the time it takes you to respawn once"

Out of 5 antag matches today, 3 were this horribly handicapped, two were sorta ok but still pretty bad. Never once did I have the mission difficulty within 10 of my levels.

Sorry it's just getting worse and worse every week.

As for the rewards part of it. They should standardize the rerward system. There is no reason we should be penalized so bad for losing to a team that has such a large handicap bonus. Same goes for Raiders, there is no reason a raider team, should beat a very very tough MMR match and get no rewards just because the Antag was super low MMR.

absolutly, especially when AI is usually a greater threat than any antag can possibly be...

this mmr system is crappy, as others thing it kills 500% of the fun, there is lot of suggestions to modify it on forum, but... hey... aleph modifications  or nerfing schneider was clearly better priorities.

I just finished a match. I was MMR 31 now, Raiders were average 34.  Mission Difficulty was 24.

I know they debuff enemies and make less of them when an antag is there, but now they are also throwing in a handicap. Really strange. Once I figure out how to post screenshots I will
