@Milk said in Expert matchmaking,when?:
(Sorry rushed reply)
Ah you make a good point about skills tied to leftclick, it’s a pretty unique feature in MMO’s from what I’ve seen. Usually at most it fills a mana bar or something. You’re right, that could be a game changer.
Could Phaleg be S ranked with this method?
Maybe if you level capped and used the Dragon Slayer meme build? 80% more damage on normals is no joke, especially on swords.
Also to chip in on the Global population getting into Expert, take the example of the Steady Shot spamming Ra. If you switched that up for roll-cancelled Impact Slider spamming, all of a sudden he gains a bit less than 10% DPS (factoring in Standing/Mobile I believe?) and is invincible like half the time. That's basically a full SGA affix (4/3/3) in damage in exchange for bothering to hit roll at the end of every PA. Ph learns to chuck mines rather than hold shift Kugel? 17% DPS increase. Hero does the laziest version of a proper Rising Slash combo instead of holding? Nearly a 24% DPS increase. That's a full JP endgame set of 1-5 SGAs and Phrase Decay for free.
As a personal example of it, I was failing to S rank the Ep5 dual boss solo by seconds. Rather than training to do some hardcore no-hit run, I messed around a bit and figured out that Piercing Round is stupid easy to two-tick on their down phases due to size, whereas Positron can sometimes drop a hit depending on positioning. I'm not even good at the two-tick thing and I shaved entire minutes off despite missing an easy dodge and dying. The vast majority of potential Expert players are being held back by game knowledge rather than skill level.
