  • Matchmaking Update: Play w/Friends

    Since Kill Strain entered into the Closed Beta stage and then into the PS+ and Live Release we have heard consistent and passionate feedback that being able to play in matches with your friends is the top request of the community. The team knows this is a top priority and is working hard at getting this into the game in a fully fleshed out way, however until that is ready to be in game, we wanted to implement some improvements to the current matchmaking system. During today's Targeted Server Maintenance Window (http://forums.killstrain.com/forum/n...ntenance-times) we updated the Matchmaking system in game to add a higher chance of playing with friends. Again, there is more to come on this with this being just the first step towards a fuller Play w/Friends experience down the line.

    The changes that went in today will help by prioritizing users from your friends list when you queue up at a similar time. And should even pull from different account level groupings, so if you are over Account Level 20 and what to show your friend a thing or two who is Account Level 6 you have a chance of this now. So get a few friends together, start up a PSN Party Chat and get into some matches.

          Thanks for the feedback, I believe it is supposed to cross over the level buckets that are in place, but I'll follow up to ensure that is accurate.
