The matchmaking (MM) system comes into play when a player hits the To Battle button. The matchmaking system groups players according to the level of the Robots and Weapons the player has currently loaded in their hanger slots. Robots and weapons that the player has purchased but are not currently in an active hanger slot are not counted for the purpose of matchmaking.

The MM takes the highest rated robot (and its current weapon levels) and uses that to generate a score. It uses this score to match the player with teammates and opponents with a similar score. So, it is important to keep all the robots in your hangar at similar strength. A group of weak robots with one powerful robot will match the player with others that have a hangar rating corresponding to that one powerful robot. So, keeping your hangar balanced is essential.

There are five layman's tier names that are used.

Rookie

Under pilot level 6

Bronze

Approximately bot level 4 and weapon level 6 for light and medium bots.

Silver

Approximately bot level 6 and weapon level 8 for all bot types.

Gold

Approximately bot level 9 and weapon level 11 for all bot types.

Top

Everything above bot level 9 and weapon level 11.


The following is the full 'scale' and scoring system that MM uses. Numbers are derived from a test server tooltip that showed full scores for 12/12 bots among each weight class.

  • Find the hangar power of your strongest bot. Your average opponents will be within +- 100 of your score.
  • +/-10% deviation from a 50% win rate correlates to +/- 10% variation of hangar score.
  • WP bots increase hangar score by 20%.
  • MM will continue to reach further up and down the scale until a room is made.
  • Low population of available players forces unfavorable matchups. The fewer players queued, the greater the chance of mismatching. However, unfavorable matches also occur during power hour, because the MM has to churn out matches quickly, bundling leftover players in the queue.
  • Keep in mind that there is a 145 point difference between lights and mediums, and a 145 point difference between mediums and heavies. 140 points is equal to: 3 bot levels & 2 weapon levels, 1 bot level & 3 weapon levels, and 5 bot levels & 1 weapon level. As long as your lighter bots are one of these combinations above the next weight class, your hangar is considered even (all within 5-10 points of one another)

How To:

  • Find the level of your strongest, heaviest active bot.
  • Note Hangar score
  • +/-100 points should be your "normal" range of opponents (your microtier)

Scale Legend :

A:b:c:d

A: Scale placement

B: Bot weight class ( L= light etc)

C: possible level combinations that equal score. bot/weapon (bot>weapon excluded aside heavies), Numbers depict weapon level averages, for deviations from even levels, multiply the weapon level by the bot's hard points, any weapon total equaling the total equals that average. (Ex: lv 6 weapon avg = weapon total of 18 on 3 slot bots, 24 on 4 slot bots etc)

Original thread regarding Hangar Power: MM Stats

These numbers were cited for 12/12 hangars:

  • Lights: 250/475 totaled at 725 at 12/12
  • Mediums: 300/570, totaled at 870 at 12/12
  • Heavies: 350/665, totaled at 1015 at 12/12

These numbers were static for 12/12 bots in each weight category, regardless of weapon types/hardpoint counts.

Base values for each weight class is static (however it is possible WP bots recieve an increased battle rating).

Base values for weapon ratings are relative to robot weight class.

Incremental scales for each robot class are static as weapon/bot levels increase stats by a fixed percentage across the board.

Hangar points are increased by 20 per robot level after level 1, and weapons are increased by 40 after level 1.

A "Battle Rating" multiplier is calculated to get a final hangar score.

Caveat

It is important to know that the Matchmaker (MM) is constantly changing. Pixonic can, and do, change the MM without notice. The MM is calculated on the server, so it can be updated anytime without downloading an update by any player. So the information here should only be used as a guide.
