The development team at Konami warns players that they should try to be as courteous as possible in the recently launched Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 because the game takes player honesty into account when it comes to matchmaking.
It seems that many players were unaware of the new feature in the football simulation title and were annoyed to see that they were grouped with other gamers who tended to rage quit and cheat.
An official blog post
from Konami reads: “A lot of our players are concerned on how exactly our courtesy level works, and what actions can be taken against cheaters. To help clarify the issue, we wish to give our players some insight into some of the details of our courtesy level.”
It adds, “Please bear in mind that this is as much information as we can make public, however we have more systems in place to both detect and deal with cheaters that we cannot make public, as to avoid users trying to override our system.”
Konami will probably never explain exactly how the matchmaking system works and how player honesty is actually evaluated, but simply making gamers aware of the feature will probably make the quality of multiplayer experiences in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 increase.
Gamers need to take into account factors like: rage quitting, disconnect rate, completed matches and fair play tendency.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013
introduces a new set of mechanics for both attack and defense and gives players more control when it comes to movement and first touches.
It seems that the evaluation of player honesty is a big trend in video games, as Riot Games has recently introduced a similar system for League of Legends, its very successful Multiplayer Online Battle Arena title.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 faces strong competition from the more popular FIFA 13 from EA Sports.
