[Beta register] Publisher My.com recently revealed how matchmaking works in Armored Warfare, which is completely different from other tank games available in the market now. Instead of hard-coded vehicle tiers, the matchmaking algorithm uses a system of battle ratings, which allows for a much more comprehensive mechanism that not only works fast, but is also easily customizable.
To further explain, each vehicle has a different rating depending on its tier, starting at 1000 and increasing by 10 percent of the previous value for every tier. The system takes a vehicle’s module setup into account by adding points to the combat rating for any additional module equipped, but overall the combat rating value will never reach the next tier.
