arena matchmaking doesnt work

  • Last Friday my average t6~t7 random team was fucked up because of that. The other team have 50% of this members unequipped or t4 itens before the arena start. Once inside they equipped t8.3 itens... and destroyed us. :(

    In my opinion the easiest way to correct that is consider the strongest itens in your character + bag.
  • Hi there, just a few clarification on the subject:

    • The matchmaking system does not consider the gear you are wearing, at all.
    • There's a soft cap, a bit harshier than in expeditions, so pretty much you could say that your Item Power will be down to about 1000 Item Power inside of arena.
    • The items that counts towards your Average Item Power are: helmet, armor, boots, cape, 1h + off-hand or 2h weapon - and it's checked only when signing up for arena just to make sure you have at least Average Item Power of 700

    Thats wonderful But it still doesnt weight weapons

    Which is the point i was making

    No gear needs to be strong except the weapons and they will win.

    The match was average tiems powers in the 800s across the board but the 1 person with a T8 weapon has 80% of the kills because they have damage that no one can touch because we are legit 850 item power where as they are ave 850 with 1 item being cap.

    AND from what you just said you are saying there is no matchmaking system that checks how strong players are before the arena.... its just do you want to fight | Yes | Ok here are 4 other randoms for you and here is 5 premade start. | no consideration of picking equal footings at all went into arena?

    May u guys empty players bags before they enter the arena? Like, the moment u sign up, is how u gonna show up when u got inside the arena.
