New Beta 2 Feature Coming Soon: Instant Matchmaking! ⚡

Jan Roose • Aug 27, 2021

The Matchmaking feature was the most requested one. We know how important finding great campaigns is to players, so we improved it even more. Read more about Instant Matchmaking below.

New Settings in Character Creation

Once you filled out a public description of your character, you can choose if your character is available for instant matchmaking.

If they are, they will be listed as available characters to Game Masters.

If they’re not, they won’t be listed.

Either way, you can still apply to campaigns in the Browse tab or get invitations from Game Masters.

You will be able to turn off instant matchmaking anytime in your character’s settings.

Adding Characters to Your Campaign

All you need to do as a Game Master is tap the + button in the player management screen. Then you’ll select if you want to search for users by username or select characters for instant matchmaking.

You tap a button on the instant matchmaking screen, and a character is added to your campaign right away.

Notification

We’ll be sending a notification to players so they know they got into a campaign!

Sorting System

Each Game Master will see a different list of available characters. We always want to improve the chance that you’ll get matched with people you like.

We’ll consider those factors:

  • What’s the player timezone?
  • What’s the player experience level?
  • Is the player online right now?
  • Has the player been waiting for a campaign? How long?
  • Which classes & races are you missing in your party? (Might be added later)

When It’s Going to Be Released?

We’ll release this feature along with the Beta 2: Equipment, Spells & Abilities Update in a couple of months.

Thank you for reading this! We’re excited that you’re staying with us on this journey, and if you have any questions, we’re here for you!

PS: We’ll share a very cool update next week. The first hint: Goats!
