“Random” Queue Proposal (Bonus BPs)

So I’ve played Resident Evil Resistance and they have a cool matchmaking feature to help speed up queue times: selecting “Random” instead of Survivor or Mastermind (their version of killer).

How this feature works is that it’ll automatically place you into the queue side with less players, so if there’s a lot of Survivors and not enough Killers then you’ll go into a Killer queue. When you choose this option you will automatically get extra Result Points (again, their version of Blood Points) at the end of the game.

I think it would be a good, healthy feature for the game that speeds up queue times and gives a bonus to players willing to go that route. Hopefully this is the correct section to have a discussion about it!

    It sounds very interesting :) if you play solo and like both roles it’s a nice way to earn extra bloodpoints and reduce queuetime.

    I think the only mild issue (that should be fixable) is knowing which Archive Challenge to have on. If I have my challenge for Survivors on and I get put in the Killer Queue, I'm going to be bummed.

    Other than that, I'd love for that feature. I play pretty 50/50 and so I'm game to play either role. Heck, sometimes I kind of want to play both so letting "fate" decide which mode to play would be fun.

    So basically a "Play Killer" button on most versions. Though I guess this would actually be useful on Switch, where wait times vary greatly for both sides.

    The Archiv Challenge is still a problem if you stay in a lobby. We need the option to select a challenge in the lobby, for example you have choose a huntress-challenge and in the lobby are four surv with medkit. Normally it would be a great idea to switch on the plague, but than you can’t do the huntress-challenge :(

    You’re right about the archive challenge selection... hopefully the devs make it so you can change this so you can edit the challenge when you’ve loaded into the the pre-game lobby.

    True... but it’s free bonus BPs and less wait time for the player selecting Random.

    Or they make it possible to activate two challenges, one killer, one survivor

  • Rey_512Rey_512 Member Posts: 1,620

    That’s true! Probably a much easier “fix” to implement. Allow for 1 killer and 1 survivor challenge to be activated at once. If it’s a mutual challenge (like bloodpoints earned) then that would be the only challenge active for a match.

    That would be nice :)

    I'd rather it put you into the role with faster queue times, 1 survivor for each killer would probably kill killer queue times.

  • Rey_512Rey_512 Member Posts: 1,620

    That’s what it would do (without getting my into programming specifics)... put you in the faster queue.

    Did somebody say...

    FREE BLOODPOINTS?!

    You could ask me to kick a wall with a toothpick placed ever so nicely under my toenail for some free bloodpoints and I'd...probably not do it, ######### would hurt.

    But hell yeah I'm down for some free bloodpoints.
