Suggestions for improvements from fans have been coming in thick and fast for the hack and slash game For Honor. Since its recent release, a number of issues have been highlighted, some of which have been acknowledged by Ubisoft and detailed on how they will be improved.
One issue that remains is matchmaking, which was a subject brought up by players during the beta for the game prior to its launch. Since then, the idea of a petition has been put forward on Reddit, which aims to create separate matchmaking for Elimination and Skirmish game modes. The post by Freshcookiee reads:
See, I LOVE elimination, I think it’s a fantastic blend of all out combat, and you get the sweetness of a one on one duel to start things off. However, I despise skirmish. I find the mechanics of this game don’t work well for that sort of mode, and personally have no interest in playing it. So, it’s really annoying (especially when trying to complete orders), that I have to queue for both skirmish and elimination, when all I want to play is elimination. And currently, I need to bounce from lobby to lobby until I can actually find an elimination match, as I keep getting placed in skirmish matches (yes I have Elim selected as a preference).
I just think it would be a lot easier for everyone if the two game modes had separate queues, like Duel and Brawl, for instance.
This clearly highlights what seems to be a key issue in For Honor. Not being able to play the game mode of your choosing from the off could prove to be troublesome for some, especially for someone in the position of not enjoying the mode they are consistently placed in. Responses understandably come to the aid of the Skirmish mode in an attempt to seeing it in a different light, or just simply offering their opinion on the mode, but ultimately the bigger picture is that its an issue with matchmaking itself.
Have you been placed in an unwanted lobby or game mode in For Honor, or have you had smooth service so far? Let us know in the comments section below, and head over to the Reddit post if you’d like to share your thoughts there.
