    Apparently Rovio / Exient wants this new matchmaking so that:
    1. Players get matched with other players of the same rank.
    2. So new / lower ranked players with lower powered transformers & decepticons aren’t pushed out of the top places by experienced players with higher powered transformers & decepticons.
    3. There’s some nice social value in that we get to meet and play against our peers.

    OK here’s the parts I don’t get.

    See #1 above. If we are matched properly, what if there aren’t enough players with the same rank? Who else fills the leaderboard then? Bots? :O Paid minions? Beta testing minions?

    See #2 above. If we are fairly matched, then what’s the point of having to nerf / mess with our transformers & decepticons firing power etc?
    If we are fairly matched, there’s no more need for handicapping us to make it more fair in general.

    It’s like entering a street race with a high powered customised sports car which we spent much $$$ and time and effort to make it competition worthy and beat the crap out of any possible opponent. Then the organisers tell us to strip out parts because we’re racing against some kiddy newbies. :O that’s so unfair! Let the newbies fight in their own league i.e. lightweight, heavyweight etc.

    Rovio / Exient, just *please* stop the nerfing!

    It’s a sad situation for us to spend so much time, effort, lack of sleep, real money, only to be nerfed.

    Feels like it’s us against the house, and the odds are stacked against us, it’s in favour of the house winning most of the time.

    OK back to the game. Less than 40 minutes to the end of this challenge.


    The “improved” matchmaking has nothing to do with making the game fair for lower ranked players.

    Rovio’s only goal is to get players to buy those special bundles they offer every new event and to increase players buying and spending gems in events. They don’t care that they make the game less fun and rewarding. They just want to make the events so competitive so that you have to spend at least 4 recharges to place top 3 in the daily event and discourage many players from competing and just buy the transform in the bundle or with gems.
