Can a ND guy explain teams?

[ Edited ]

So anyone who's played the 'No Parties' game mode knows exactly how messed up team balancing is. . .But I was wondering why. It happens every single time.

 

I mean. . .I have ZERO experience in developing net code or whatever tech wizardry is involved but I reckon I could easily write a bit of code in about 10 seconds that would force balanced teams if I was experienced enough to have gotten in the ND staff list in the first place. . . so my question is. . .is there a reason for it being so awful? Or what the story is Smiley Frustrated

 

HUNTERS = 19+27+18+0 = Combined rank 64

 

FIREFLIES = 73 + 20 + 23 + 149 Combined rank 265

 

WHY!??!?!?!?!?! IT"S COMPLETELY BAFFLING.

There doesn't seem to be any logical algorithm for matchmaking. It may well be random.

If you guys stay in the lobby, the teams mix around. Every more and then they are over loaded.
Thing is, after a shellacking, no one wants too sit around and have it happen again.

Survival of the fittest, this is why I decided to try and get the hunter/firefly trophies as soon as possible before there's total gars running around.

When teams are unbalanced like that. . .two of the small team leave. Then I leave. My clan dies. . . but Naughty Dog leave me no option.

I'm sure the computer and match making system is smart enough not to put so many big numbers in the same team.

Surely it's simple?

Truly bizarre.

Same here!gonna upload a few picture when i ll be on pc regarding this argument.
Is it so difficult for the system to make one of the various combination in which the difference between the sum of all levels in the two teams is very small?

Touted going to find that the mixing system is best.

What if your team, despite being the better "numbers" gets spanked? You want that locked in? Just play out the game like a manly man, and get the shuffled line up next time.
