Matchmaker needs to be fixed, even with lower population.
Many solutions have been proposed such as:
- Hiding names on all sides in lobby
- putting people into a “wait zone” in game, until all ships are loaded
- Reshuffling teams once an even number of people have been found
- Penalizing people who leave a lobby (by up to 50 points or preventing a person to play for a certain period of time, depending on rating)
- etc etc
games like the above are NOT ok. It’s completely unfair for the under-rated team.
