    is it just me or is there a huge increase in the number of fixers on one team recently?

    24x7 events are causing harm to the normal mode matchmaking

    Still happening today with no event on. Something is definitely different.

    Have seen quite often in the last days. Often fixers on the one side against 5 non fixers. I don't say, it's impossible to win, but really difficult as many lose a motivation and throw the game and move on to the next quickly. Is it just a coincidence?

    Me too, I've seen far too many 3 fixer games. These games used to be unicorns on the BB scene. But in the space of the last few days, I've had at least 3 or 4.
    Unhealthy, pls fix.

    Yeah I dunno what's up with that. I've been coming up against teams with no fixers vs 3 or 4 fixers on my side. Something's up with matchmaking

    I have to say though, I'm quite enjoying coming up against firebomb spammers, they can't do much after the firebomb damage gets matched by 5 or 6 pulses. Really exposes how bad some people's aim is, sitting back launching firebombs and straight after we're all just seeing cannon fire flying over our heads lol, sometimes it's pretty obvious without the firebombs they can't hit a thing.

    Acho que deveriam balancear melhor os times quanto ao tipo de barco especialmente fixers.. O que tá acontecendo é que vem fixer só em um dos times e no outro não. Então o speeder tem liberdade pra ir até o outro lado e brincar na nossa frente.. Recebe alguns tiros e volta a mamar no fixer e completa a vida novamente enquanto o outro time só leva dano e sem ter como se recuperar fica em desvantagem

    Mathmaking is really bad after the update.
    Its frustrating to play normal battle now.

    Had a game yesterday, my team 4 shooters and 1 fixer, their team, 4 fixers and 1 speeder.
    We steam rolled them, quickest 5-0 ever...

    Yep, also had 3 fixers + 2 speeders vs 5 Shooters (way too less firepower). I also had 4 Fixers vs 0 Fixers (wtf!). Nearly every second game 2 Fixers vs 0 Fixers (which is hard to win after a loosing streak leading into the 2K infamy range - people have no clue about playing with fixers there).
    Before the update the algorithm tried to even out the fixers on both sides, which was way better.
    And when they re-introduce this feature, I would say a reaper should count like a fixer.

    @Zeus acknowledged this on Discord, and doesn't see an issue with it. To paraphrase, it would be boring if sides were balanced by ship type.

    Cool well I’m not on discord and neither are any of these people but having every other game with all the fixers on one side is not called boring. It’s called something changed recently that is probably not working as intended.

    We want balanced games with both skill/gear and ships.

    I read that too. That was such a bizarre answer from Zeus. Like somehow it doesn't matter anymore if matchmaking is balanced or not and infamy should no longer be taken seriously.
    There is something obviously changed in the RANKED matchmaking. My guild members have complained about it too. I personally skipped infamy battles yesterday and today, just because I knew they were going to be a mess with the number of high level Nightmare guys playing at 4000 infamy.

    So it leads me to the grand question. If BattleBay no longer feels that infamy battles should be balanced and both teams(on paper) given a 50/50 chance of winning, then what is the end goal of all this?
    Why spend money on a game to level up gear, for the goal of improving your ranking(infamy) when the game itself no longer prioritizes infamy battles?

    I also asked this question about the future of Infamy, but Zeus did not respond to it... I don't think they know how to fix the issues they created with perpetual events and conflicts with Leagues and thus Infamy. No one seems to wants to play ranked any longer... I'm seeing long wait times even without an event going on.
