When a matchmaking session is requested for a player, he is then added to the matchmaker queue. After enough players are queued for same game, new server will be spawned for them.

  • Players can queue only for games within the same Game Set.
  • When enough players are match-maked, new server starts
    • If there are not enough players for given time (aprox 2 minutes), the matchmaker will try start the server with minimum players.
    • Minimum / maximum players per servers is defined via game settings.
  • Matchmaking is started via Start Matchmaking instruction.
  • Difference from Reserve Session is, that players does not have to be on same server.
