Epic States That New Matchmaking In Fortnite Aims To Create "Fairer" Matches

Epic States That New Matchmaking In Fortnite Aims To Create "Fairer" Matches - MMORPG.com

Since rolling out their change to Fortnite's matchmaking, which we reported on previously, Epic has come out in defense of its new system. In a blog post on the Epic Games site, the Fortnite creator states the goal of the new matchmaking system is to create "fairer matches" for all.

The post detailed the process behind the new matchmaking, specifically how the team behind Fortnite uses the data from players to help create a fairer match for all involved. 

Our goal with the new matchmaking system is to create fairer matches for all of our players, which includes special considerations for each platform. This means that where similar skill exists, players may be paired against opponents from ALL platforms — whether they’re using mouse + keyboard, a controller, or touch input. We are closely monitoring match analytics and your feedback, and we'll make adjustments to ensure everyone is playing a fair match.

Additionally Fortnite players can look forward to bots soon, but Epic wanted to answer some questions regarding bots before they start to invade the world. Players can expect to see bots mixed in with the human population, and if you find yourself meeting your demise at the hands of a bot, you'll start to spectate another human player. 

Currently there is no way to party up with bots, but the team is looking into supporting a full-bot match to help players improve their skill levels. You can view the full details on the Epic site.
