    If I fleet with a friend who’s 5500*, and I’m 4500 for example, would it count me as also having 5500 infamy for matchmaking? (Effectively making it same as x2 5500 players fleeting) I’ve heard both sides so I’m looking for a confirmation :).

    Pretty sure that's how it's calculated :D

    You couldn't because you're more than 800 apart.

    You get the idea.

    Although, still pretty sure that fleet works, think I’ve seen it/ done it before. 204C9ABA-E356-451E-A0A3-E607E103DACE.png
    Notice how it only says 4500+ instead of my exact infamy, and the “current difference” is calculated using 4500 as my infamy.

    If you’re over 4500, you get counted as 4500 instead of whatever infamy you’re actually at. So for example, a 5000 infamy player could fleet with a 3700 infamy player because the difference is 4500-3700 = 800.
    Confirmation on this too pls? XD

    What I can confirm is:

    - if you fleet with somebody you get harder matches (so you do not get matched down but not necessarily at the highest infamy of the two of you either)
    The main reason for that is, so that it can't be abused to get easy games

    - you can fleet with other players 800 Infamy apart

    Hope this helps! :)
