Strife: New Patch Heralds Big Changes

Strife: New Patch Heralds Big Changes

The Strife team has sent word that the next patch, based largely on community feedback, will bring a ton of big changes to the game. Included in the patch are features such as pets, crafting, improvements to match quality, and the news that Strife has partnered with Mail.ru. To celebrate the partnership announcement, the team revealed a new hero, Claudessa.

Matchmaking

  • Skill Based Matchmaking - One of the main lessons we learned from matchmaking in HoN was the importance of letting systematically generated empirical data drive the design and weighting of the factors in a matchmaking system. For this reason, we have been implementing matchmaking in phases, with the data generated from each iteration informing the design and implementation of the next. We started by accounting for heroes and regions, then balanced according to number of games played, and finally added party size to the equation. With this patch we are excited to be able to implement skill based matchmaking and make the Strife experience that much more fair.
