DOCS About Matchmaking feature in ACC

    Dear ACC racers -
    We have noticed some concerns over our forum post regarding a more detailed definition of the feature "matchmaking" and multiplayer.

    This topic has been widely shared and discussed over various platforms, resulting in and alluding to an incorrect conclusion that Assetto Corsa Competizione will not feature any matchmaking feature and that the 1.0 version will only come with a simple server list when it comes to "how to join a multiplayer race" inside the title.

    Even though ACC will release in a short time, we would like to clarify the situation in order to allow all current or future customers to be clear about this whole topic. We invite you to keep in mind the following:

    - Our Dev. Blog forum post aimed to clarify that ACC will not feature any automatic scheduling of multiplayer races, and we would like to underline that nothing of the sort was ever promised during the Early Access programme.

    - Assetto Corsa Competizione does feature multiplayer matchmaking. This feature is made possible thanks to a brand new Rating System (that will evolve together with the game after release in order to work even better), and it will help all players to automatically join the best match according to their skills and safety on track. Our system will first sort the servers giving the proper weight to players' preferences and rating indicators and secondly allow them to:

    A) Press a Quick Join button that will automatically connect them to the theoretical best match;

    B) Select their preferred server from a filtered server list on the ACC multiplayer page.

    Anyone expecting an automatic scheduled racing system, featuring a calendar, a booking system and continuously updating leagues misunderstood what was stated by Kunos Simulazioni; on the other side, all reacting to this with the feeling that an automatic matchmaking function would have been missing can hopefully feel better now.

    Kunos Simulazioni, as already known, will continue developing ACC even after 1.0 in order to closely look the feedback from the community and make the Competizione even better after its initial full-version launch.

    Ok, now Kunos adds the magic button that just selects the server on the top of the server list and pushes the connect button for you.

    Happy to see a post clarifying the situation. The rating system works well and including it as part of matchmaking looks like a good move.

    The 29th can't come soon enough!

    I think this solution is good and bad.

    Is good cause now, the player doesn't have to do anything, they have a big QUICK JOIN button that do all the work for them.

    Is bad cause even if it works and everybody plays with people of similar skills, it doesn't prevent all the servers to be Spa/Monza in perfect conditions.

    But I see it has a huge step forward, and I'm really looking forward to the multiplayer of the 1.0.

    Thank you for listening, Kunos

    As long as the quick join button doesn’t connect you to a live race (as it frequently would today based on the server matchmaking!) then happy days

    Sounds like a perfect system for my preference.
    Those looking for scheduled racing with a calendar (leagues) might even be pleasantly surprised one day if Stephane Ratel himself is the one who's handing out the ACC trophies... who knows what's cooking.
    I am very glad Kunos is not a league organiser and can instead focus to push out this superb content that serious and even professional organisations (SRO) can use.

    There are plenty of league organisers for scheduled racing. Biggest challenge is quality random public racing and I think the rating system when used properly should do wonders here. With only a few good drivers the racing is awesome already

    I don’t know if it’s necessary to reinforce this, but I think I’m reading it correctly and the quick join button will work like this (if not please disregard):
    1. the player sort the servers according to his preferences (advanced tab of multiplayer)
    2. servers are ordered according to the player preferences
    3. selecting the servers where to race:
    a) Quick Join button and ACC automatically select the best server, according to the player preferences.
    b) or the player selects the server from the server list presented, according to the player preferences choices.

    I don’t know what will be all the preferences available to chose from the advanced tab but track surely is one and, probably, the race session, therefore if Monza/Spa are tracks that are out of my preferences the quick join will probably won’t select a server with those tracks but one of the others I rather join in; and, considering there may also be possible to select the preferred session the server is running, if I select servers in FP or Q, the quick join will put me in a server with one of those sessions running.

    Otherwise, if I don’t have any preferences whatsoever, ACC will still have to select a server to where I’ll be put when clicking quick join, although that means it can be any server and any session running (determine only by rating and, probably, latency).

    So, for it to work as intended, it will be a good idea if the player have, at least, some preferences selected so ACC can automatically search the servers accordingly and select the one where the player will be put by the quick join system.

    Even if the player doesn't have any preference, it still have some ratings, son the system should pick a server that matches that ratings

    Well, I've asked for scheduled races, (even if I had to pay for them), and I still want them, don't get me wrong, BUT:

    1.- one of the biggest concerns I had was that people with good SA, RC..... were just joining unrestricted servers because they didn't want to be the first ones in a new server.

    This (if everyone, or most of the people uses it) should fix this problem, because even if the server puts you in an empty server, the next people similar to you that presses the button, will be sent with you. so this should fix the problem of people being alone in the servers.

    2.- You don't know what server you will sent in, so this gives the online a randomnes that I really like (something that can't be achieved with scheduled races, so a point here for kunos), I think there will be people joing and thinking "ughhh hungaroring" and leaving, I think there should be something that addressed this.

    On the negative point of this...is that I guess that a big % of servers will be Spa and monza on a sunny day, so the chances of ending in a server like this will be quite big. let's hope kunos tends to send people to different tracks each X hours, days or weeks.

    3.- the ratings are fabulous (noone can deny that), so I guess that this should more or less guarantee racing with people of your same level.

    So.... so far I think this is pretty positive, let's wait to see how it works, I just fear the constant repetition of the same circuits, and weather conditions. I also hope there is something that encourages people to press the button and be matched with people of similar skill to make it work as good as possible.

    well, the "advanced" tab allows to set up tracks (so if you don't want Monza, just set Monza to zero), n° players, competitive, clean (and other that i don't remember now)
    So, if i've understand, and if the system works well, you can select servers by any kind of preferences and/or ratings.

    Am i right?

    Is there any kind of filtering done for servers that are running only practice sessions vs full weekends (or multi-hour practice into very short quali/races)? If someone were to hit this button, is there a risk they could be thrown into a practice server instead of a "race weekend" style server?
  17. Raklödder

    Raklödder Simracer

    Any chance we can opt-out from the rating system during singleplayer and online gameplay, or sort servers after name and players like with a normal server browser and not having to worry about the broken filter weights?

    I'll tell you how the one klick join button will work.
    Player A joins the server.
    Oh no Misano, I hate this track.
    Player A left the game.

    Player B joins the server, oh no, not again Misano, player B left the server.

    Player C joins the server, what one hour race length? Wtf!
    Player C left the server.

    Player D joins the server......
    Player X,Y and Z joins the server, 10 seconds in qualify left.
    Oh no,I don't wanna race without quali, the kidz will kill me in first corner.
    Player x, y, and z left the server.

    But hey now we have this one klick join button!

    It is true that it is pretty likely that this will happen....I am worried about this too....and in the end all of these people, when they see that the button doesn't send them to SPA, they will just use the server list as it is now.

    I dont think it has to happen, is much better to have a button that do all the work, not like only a server list. I think we should wait and see
