Updates are an essential part of the MMORPG experience because even though a lot of effort goes into making the game, no team can make it perfect. Thus the need for tweaks, changes, and improvements. In the case of Skyforge, the upcoming Stand United update will debut not only new content but also the new Queue system for the game, making this a true 2-for-1 special.
The team behind Skyforge knows that finding a good party is hard because whether you use Group Finder or the Chat system, it’s sometimes very hit-or-miss. When you miss, everyone suffers. The team doesn’t want that, so they’ve refined the system to make it not only better for everyone, but to ensure that you end up in a group that actually needs your talents.
To do this, the team has implemented a very simple addition: Role Selection. Now, when you want to find a group, you can state what role you want to play in the group. Then, the system will search for groups that need your particular skillset. And what if you have multiple skills? What if you’re adept in multiple skillsets? In that case, you can select as many roles as you want.
As a bonus, the developers are also aiming to fix and speed up finding replacement players should someone drop out. In this case, a replacement will be found among those looking for a group with the role of the person that dropped out.
The developers hope that this is just the beginning of making Group Finder not only more streamlined but more efficient and pleasing to players. They have more ideas they want to implement and hope that these changes will make Skyforge an even better game. The Stand United update will arrive on March 9th.
