    Since event and casual don't have infamy, matchmaking there is based mainly off of gear score.

    Agreed, Infamy isn't used in Casual and Events. However I don't think matchmaking is actually based on Gear Score as far as I can tell from my matches... it's primarily captain level, and secondarily gear score maybe if you get a quick match... if it takes a while it expands the range and includes any scrub in the bay. My GS is high 10's to low 11's, and I see players 8000-14000 Gear Score which isn't exactly competitive.

    Not based on gear score -- mine is 8k-9k and matched with 11k to 12k

    So i'm guessing no one knows how the matching is done and the design of these 2 modes is really only for high infamy players..

    I also see no one representing the game is on here, nor really anyone. So, i'm guessing the game is not very popular anymore

    The issue is the devs are hell-bent on giving faster matches over competitive ones, so if there aren't enough players around you right away, they just widen the matching criteria so much that it may as well be RNG matchmaking.

    The Devs bailed on the Forum before the player base declined. What happened is they introduced added agility and a super-expensive boat leveling system that no player asked for, so players complained about it, but were ignored. Then they introduced new boats like players have been asking for, but made them nearly impossible to level up, replacing all event rewards with a paltry amount of ship pieces, eliminating all coin carryover, then added another boat with a new class of items, effectively lowering item RNG across the board. It wound up being a long series of progression nerfs in an already super-long progression system, and by the time all was said and done a fairly active forum became the ghost town you see now. The most recent changes to battle and league rewards were long overdue, so that was decent, but now with less players, matchmaking is in jeapardy status. It's what happens when the devs refuse to listen to the player base and Rovio refuses to market what is otherwise a great game. The next month or two will be telling as to the future of this game.

    Well still have not done anything with matchmaking

    ME 2200 match with 5067 infamy -- I did 36K damage they did 75K dmg

    If you can't fleet by more than 800 then DUH you should not be automatched with someone with 2.5X your infamy. Way to go Dev's way to go

    They don't have enough players to provide fair matchmaking. Simple.
