In October 2017, Activision revealed that they were working on a new matchmaking system between players to encourage microtransactions. So far, this system has not yet been implemented in game. But here it is, Activision is no longer the only publisher to want to get rid of the balanced matchmaking system between players. This editor is of course Electronic Artsfresh out of the media storm triggered by the implementation of unbalancing lootboxes Star Wars Battlefront IIwho is looking for a new system to earn money.
But the publisher has already implemented a dynamic difficulty adjustment system (DDA, for Dynamic Difficulty Adjustment in English) in its titles.
This system was spotted by Yong Yea, and this technique makes it possible to make a game easier or more difficult.
EA claims that this difficulty optimization will maximize player engagement and reduce the number of progression probabilities. In addition, since the system was implemented, the publisher has seen a 9% increase in player engagement, while having a neutral impact on monetization.
There’s nothing wrong with having real-time difficulty adjusted, if it’s still a fair system for everyone. But what if such a mechanism were implanted in a Dark Souls or one nioh ? These games would almost immediately lose all of their charm. In addition, our dsogaming colleagues suspect certain bugs within EA titles that would be linked to this new system, in particular on FIFA, where several players have complained that their teammates have become dumber at times. Difficult to prove it without having access to the source code.
But there, EA also wants to do away with a balanced matchmaking system in multiplayer games. Internal research by EA led to a system called Engagement Optimized Matchmaking or EOMM. Still according to the American giant, they would have succeeded in proving, according to a theoretical model, that this would increase, once again, the involvement of the players.
At the moment this system of unbalanced matches has not yet been put in the games, but nothing says that it will not come with those to come like Anthem.
Has the American giant learned the lessons of the scandal of Battlefront II ? Nothing is less sure…
