Teams.gg Matchmaking Algorithm
With outstanding success in CS:GO, Teams.gg wants to provide VALORANT players exclusive opportunities to find suitable teammates. Since VALORANT’s launch, Riot Games has been actively inventing ways to reduce queue times and match teammates with similar skills and goals. Providing players with teammates matching their skills, experience, and commitment can improve players’ ranking.
In team-based games like CS:GO and VALORANT, scaling up the ranks with ease means working together with a great team. Teams.gg uses an algorithm that allows players to quickly and easily discover players like them. It allows players to connect with ideal teammates who can play better together.
Entry of Teams.gg to VALORANT will help curb the growing toxicity by allowing players to avoid incompatible teammates. Participants don’t have to randomly play in solo queue anymore. Data from the company shows that they’ve already assisted 38% of registered users to connect with ideal teammates.
Growth of Teams to VALORANT
By combining in-game statistics with player survey data, Teams.gg can bring together players sharing ambitions, skills, and playstyle. Teams.gg, the winner of the Clutch, Esports Insider’s pitch investment competition, has exponentially grown since its launch in 2019. It provides its matchmaking services to over 3 thousand CS:GO players every month.
When players sign up, the information they provide, including location data, skill level, and ambition, is used to match them with suitable teammates. With Teams.gg, players can save time by minimizing the time they use in screening for good players.
