Activision Patents Bad Matchmaking To Drive Microtransactions

Jacob Robinson
Jacob Robinson

A system and method is provided that drives microtransactions in multiplayer video games. The system may include a microtransaction arrange matches to influence game-related purchases. For instance, the system may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player.

The microtransaction engine may analyze various items used by marquee players and, if the items are being promoted for sale, match the marquee player with another player (e.g., a junior player) that does not use or own the items. Similarly, the microtransaction engine may identify items to be promoted, identify marquee players that use those items, and match the marquee players with other players who do not use those items. In this manner, the microtransaction engine may leverage the matchmaking abilities described herein to influence purchase decisions for game-related purchases.
In one implementation, the microtransaction engine may target particular players to make game-related purchases based on their interests. For example, the microtransaction engine may identify a junior player to match with a marquee player based on a player profile of the junior player. In a particular example, the junior player may wish to become an expert sniper in a game (e.g., as determined from the player profile). The microtransaction engine may match the junior player with a player that is a highly skilled sniper in the game. In this manner, the junior player may be encouraged to make game-related purchases such as a rifle or other item used by the marquee player.
In one implementation, when a player makes a game-related purchase, the microtransaction engine may encourage future purchases by matching the player (e.g., using matchmaking described herein) in a gameplay session that will utilize the game-related purchase. Doing so may enhance a level of enjoyment by the player for the game-related purchase, which may encourage future purchases. For example, if the player purchased a particular weapon, the microtransaction engine may match the player in a gameplay session in which the particular weapon is highly effective, giving the player an impression that the particular weapon was a good purchase. This may encourage the player to make future purchases to achieve similar gameplay results.

In other words, games like Call of Duty and Destiny will have even worse matchmaking because Activision decided to target in-game advertising at "junior players."

So, assume Activision for now and then everyone later.

No. They just created the weapon to kill multiplayer matchmaking and will now charge other people money to use said weapon.

Cameron Williams
Cameron Williams

No, they just grabbed a larger market share of microtransactions, because other companies now have to pay to use it. However, they made it worse because they brought this idea up to other publishers and developers. It was the same with bethesda back in the day that first brought the idea of DLC into the light.

Levi Johnson

It's not like COD or Battlekangz have any matchmaking. Kangzfield Uno uses a server browser, and COD places you by ping, not skill.

place player in session where item is effective
Oh, so they'll sell you absolute dogshit weapons, and then put you against shitters, so it seems you didn't waste your money. Slowly, you'll get placed against regular players, you'll think the weapon has gone bad or some shit, then they'll sell you another, new, equally as shit weapon, but place you against shitters again. Then repeat the cycle all the way to the bank.

That will screw up matchmaking so much, holy shit. What if one guy is from France and the other's from Russia? Before, they would be matched FrancexFrance and RussiaxRussia, regardless of items. Now that's all in the air.

Nicholas Collins

Of course, we will have to ignore that matchmaking is cancer to begin with, but that is irrelevant because barely anyone adds server browsers to their games nowadays.

Cameron Ross

Yeah, SVER was the slavs. They're comparable to whales in that SVER gear was obscenely overpowered, and their maps were the only ones in the game where the line of sight of their gun turrets overlapped, which basically made it impossible to win against them without a coordinated team. As MAG existed in the same time period as the height of CoD's popularity, every idiot tried to be Rambo in MAG and ended up getting slaughtered. If you weren't with SVER, you weren't going to win, period. This shit balance between the factions was one of the biggest factors in MAG's downfall.

The only thing surprising about this, is that they didn't work it into the kill-cam, showing off exactly what enhancements to "marquee" player had - and then offering a direct link to buy lootboxes that MAY, (but probably won't) contain that item.

Even worse, in games with several balancing mechanics they could match worse players up with top players using specific tactics or equipment, and then offer to sell the counter to it, particularly if they make hard counter items.

IE: A high level character with a gernade launcher is matched up with a worse player. The less experienced player is dominated and a popup shows that you can buy an 'armor crate' for a chance to get the 'Flak Jacket' equip that's a completely garbage item, but is like 95% reduction in explosive damage so will help them win against this player.

Or if they get even worse and have more direct P2W items like flat damage bonuses, aim assist bonuses, or life bonuses, matching players up against people far above their level to promote buying those simply to even the score.

These people need to be stopped.

Levi Richardson
Levi Richardson

endgame content has bosses that take hours to beat even with the best gear available and knowing how to exploit every game mechanic for max damage
story drops literally on a cliffhanger with no resolution
DLC adds rest of the story (almost twice as much story content and new areas as vanilla game), twice as much gear with most being more than 2x more powerful than the best in the vanilla game, level cap is increased from 70ish to 999 (but only if you have the DLC), and new skills that make everything that came before them obsolete
The sad part is that the situation I'm describing isn't hypothetical. It's what Bamco did to Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization. People here always say that since it's SAO shit, it doesn't affect them, but you bet your ass it'll affect all of us when this kind of thing becomes the rule rather than the exception.

And it can get even worse than that…

Chances to obtain that item are greatly enhanced (but by no means assured), the prices are reduced, and the item is a single-use per match and auto-equips upon spawn.

Say what you want, they're order of magnitudes greater than AAA and have actually produced some great games. You can't argue against their quality and more importantly, independent people who make great games actually have a passion for the games they create.

I want to post in this thread to say that I work for a developer and we get constant pressure from suits to put this kind of stuff in the games we are making. Our current projects won't be done for 1-3 years. Most of the games released right now were in development for 2-6 years. These kinds of features have been in progress for years. If you allow it to be normalized, and the only way you can do that is to not buy it, it will be everywhere. We are very close to korean mmo pay to win being in every game. To the people who say that voting with your wallets doesn't work because of whales you're wrong. Whales only spend money on games where they can gain social power and to display affluence over others. If there is no audience they don't spend their whale money either.

Let me fill in on what goes through the head of your average cowabooty player that sadly contradicts your post.
Your average cowabooty player gets new cowabooty game. Gets killed by guy who's a higher level and has a gun they don't because they haven't reached the level required to unlock the gun. Then, instead of reaching the obvious conclusion that they shouldn't play a game that has an arbitrary restriction on what guns they can use, they decide that they need that higher level weapon because that'll somehow make them not shit.
Activision is just patenting and capitalizing on a pre-existing mindset. This will probably make them millions and there's nothing we can do about it. Not that I care, cowabooty sucks, normalfags are retarded and they deserve each other.

I was honestly waiting for something like this to show up. First developers charged for better items in games, then they thought it would be a good idea to charge for a chance to get better items à la loot boxes. Then we saw Bethesda's jewry with charging for things other people have made, so it shouldn't be surprising to see others to attempt shit like this. How much worse can it get? Is there no limit to the extend of corporate jewry? Maybe next they'll try to charge you to keep items you earned in game, or make things you buy have a duration period where you need to subscribe to get full effects.

An average Gamer as defined above has a few Characteristics that I believe fit a good majority.

They are likely trying to gain social status through their ability to play video games. This maybe due to a lack of challenge in their life or a want to be more than what they are. In WoW for example you may find people who complain about the game being too easy. The main concern they have is that newer players will be as powerful as their characters due to the game not being hard enough. This shows us that it is not enough for them to be powerful in a game, others must also be weaker.

They think very low of themselves and prefer escapism over self improvement. Over my time observing gamers I noticed that they are willing to spend 10 hours a day being frustrated trying to learn a game but they would not sit down and spend 2 hours a day trying to learn something that had practical applications. This could be due to video games having a faster path to a dopamine rush(around 1hour~1day) compared to spending four months learning Java only to find out that It will take another few years before they could make anything of value. This could indicate that Gamers prefer instant gratification.

They need social validation of their hobby. A gamer plays Counter Strike, World of Warcraft or any other popular game because it provides them with a big social club to be part of. A gamer will not stray far away from what the gamer community has deemed to be acceptable behavior. Gamers are not very curious people, They will never the the first to use a platform or a service. They are very simple and rely on streamers and youtube celebrities to validate their opinions about video games.

Logan Miller
Logan Miller

They cant explain their actions. If you would like to test this theory find yourself a gamer that watches video games streams on a website called twitch, note it must be twitch as that is the standard place to watch streams and indicates that the gamer does not try to be an individual. Ask the gamer “Why do you watch people play video games? why don’t you just play games yourself?”. Since you contested the hobby they will immediately respond with this phrase “Well why do you watch sports?” or something along those lines(about sports) or they will say that they watch people to get better at the game which is unlikely as gamers get better at games through constant repetition that creates natural intuition.

They cant admit any faults in games that would invalidate their achievements.
Gamers will tell you day and night about the way the developers are ruining the games they play. They will tell you about how they are making them too easy or how they are making them too user friendly and removing challenge. Gamers will never admit to a game being easier to users who pay. A good trigger term to get a gamer frustrated is “Pay to win” the term means that a paying user will have an advantage over a non paying user and it really works at invalidating a lot of a gamers imagined social status and self worth. For example the game League of Legends allows a paying user to own more characters compared to a free user. League of Legends is also known as an “E-Sport”, E-Sport is a marketing term some game companies use to attract young kids who need social validation. If a game is an E-Sport it means that if a user plays the game long enough that user will one day be a millionaire(this is what gamers really think). If you come along and tell a gamer that the game they play is “Pay To Win” they will immediately feel attacked and begin to create excuses as to why its not.

They have bad natural time management skills. Gamers don’t seem to grasp the concept of human mortality. They cant understand that a human has on average 75 years on this earth before they must go back(less if you’re sitting on your ass all day eating chips and playing games). I say this because of a story I must tell. I was playing War Thunder with a friend. It was an alright game about shooting planes. I looked at the unlock system the game had and looked at the amount of currency the game gave per win. I did some basic math and realized that it would take me several months to unlock a jet plane. My friend responded to me “Its only a few months if you play 5 hours a day you will get it in no time”(This person spent around 100$ to unlock a jet a few months later). The same thing happened with League of Legends. I did the math on the unlock system and It would take me 4 years to unlock every character in the game. Again I was met with the same “Don’t worry its only 4 years”. This leads me to believe gamers don’t really value their time or are blind to the reality of change.

How to exploit Gamers

Exploit one: Create the illusion of value through a painful grind that can be bypassed
A gamer will not spend $20 on a game that offers a lot of fun that they can enjoy for hours and hours but they will download a free game that allows them to play 1% of the content and demands the gamer to pay in order to unlock the rest of the content. Essentially the gamer will download your game, They will see that it takes 1 hour to get X they will get X or pay $5, they need to get 10 X now, they will get 10 X. After a few days of this conditioning they will associate X = 1 hour and 1 hour = $(insert their hourly pay). This is a great way that many top games of our time exploit their users and it is probably the most effective as many gamers don’t understand the concept of mortality, they will be more willing to be conditioned through those first few weeks building the association with X = 1 hour and 1 hour = $(insert hourly pay)

Step 1 make the game free as gamers hate upfront costs when they where not conditioned on the value.

Step 2 have X(something that gives the player social status) that is wroth Y(money) or Z(time)

Step 3 Let the gamer play the game for a few months to stronger associate X with Z

Step 4 Gamer associates X with Z. They realize that X can be gained faster with Y(money). Because the gamer now feels that X is worth something instead of not having any value they become more open to exchanging Y for X

Step 5 Gamer feels very smart about their realization and starts trading Y for X instead of Z for X. A common marketing phrase to help sell this type of strategy to gamers is “People who don’t have time to keep up can pay a few dollars”.

Camden Miller
Camden Miller

Exploit two: Create a social trap. Gamers are very keen on social signals and desperately seek social acceptance. A good way to keep players in your game is to have other players demand players stay in your game or else lose social acceptance. A few examples include League of Legends and World of Warcraft. In League of Legends players demand that their friends improve their ability to play or face reduced social status. In World of Warcraft players are forced to spend months with a Guild or face reduced social status. Overall social shaming from the players themselves works best. Web sites such as reddit use this strategy very effectively to make the website more marketable and carry an aura of respectability as they push progressive politics with zero shame.

Exploit three: Create a system that identifies status in the game. Gamers wont spend months of their life playing your game unless there is some way to show their effort to someone else. Pacman machines had this feature through the use of score boards. A kid may play Pacman 6 or 7 times before getting bored. A kid will play Pacman 40 or 100 times if he thinks that his score will be the top score on that score board one day. The concept can be applied to modern games. Add a number or some visual that identifies a player based on their time commitment or effort commitment and you will get the same pattern. Don’t add a visual that may be unwanted by the player, for example showing everyone in a game that a player has spent money to unlock power gaining items may be unwanted. League of Legends does not allow players to see the amount of characters another player has unlocked to prevent players from feeling cheated if they lost to a player with every character while they only have two or three.

This will probably be successful in getting impulse purchasers to buy stupid bullshit, which will only fuel it and similar garbage.
It's only going to get worse from here until either the economy itself crashes at this point, since most people will be outraged, apathetic or supportive of it since, "muh favorite bidya gaem is made by them, you can't say anything bad about it" sort of shit is short lived and is forgotten until the next wave of outrage.

Namco Bandai, Capcom, and Konami all take note of what goes on in the west and companies like Nexon. They will push consumers to the very edge to see what they can get away with. Tales games are ridden with DLC and then an upgraded version is sold later with even more on disc DLC. SAO:HR was somewhat fun here and there but it also had so many flaws it wasn't worth finished. Shame too because the combat system is actually pretty damn cool. It just need better enemies to fight against to make it worth investing into.

God that's a shame, honestly it would probably be one thing if they had a small happy resolution ending in the vanilla game, and then released the other stuff as an "expansion pack" (preferably with less "Oh this gear is hands down better and the level difference can be 100x greater" kind of thing and more interesting content). Kind of a shame because I was hoping to get into the SAO games, any recommendations?

Don't forget matchmaking ques based on keeping players as close to a 50% Winrate as possible

Not quite but
premium aircraft are historically better in a multitude of ways
for instance the Germans Do 335 b has double the cannons, better engine, and has better performance (still is a shit versus other fighters but it's main claim is anti bomber and extra rp and silver lions just by using it.
tanks now have tier 5 prems that are prototypes of the new tier 6 tanks, usually with a little less armor but still effective
this is only mildly mitigated by the fact that at this point it's based on how fast you can identify targets and how good a player can aim, as even with these tanks that are an easy gate into higher tiers (they also give bonus research and silver for how high your tank's tier is) most tankers have barrels and ammo that can pen stuff.
It's not quite as bad, and player skill is a factor, but some of these are so over the top it's not even funny.

Honestly though, I don't think I would recommend the game until you're able to pirate it. The Vita version is also way too down scaled compared to the PS4 version for me to recommend. As for the other games, I haven't played them. Hopefully, the newest game will be fun.

The biggest problem with all this shit is how badly western gamers are willing to bend over and take the ass raping. When Bamco put out that Tales game where the main girl ends up leaving the party halfway through the game, only for Bamco to sell her side of the story as DLC, Japanese gamers refused to touch the game with a ten foot pole. I saw a Japanese person say that within three weeks of the game's release, he had found a new, sealed copy in a nearby retailer for the equivalent of 2 US dollars, and when Bamco announced their brilliant DLC plan, the girl in question became forever known as the "1000 yen heroine." I've never heard of western gamers doing anything remotely like that. They've even rolled over and accepted paid mods.

You forgot to mention how the translation wasn't proofread at all, but I see you're a man of culture as well. Strea is indeed the best girl. Fucking shame what they did to her in the culturalization, though. Since her lines are almost all voiced, and I know moon, at least I was able to hear the real deal. To this day, I still wish I had been patient and imported the game instead of buying the western release.

Pretty good article from Gamespot. Activision got their stock downgraded by a pretty good investment management company Cowen & Company. Article goes on to say

Starting off, Cowen believes that investor expectations for Activision's performance is fiscal 2018 is "too high." Based on conversations with Cowen's clients, the firm believes industry expectations–of overall industry growth of 12-13 percent year-over-year–is "highly unlikely."

Overwatch League–which starts up in earnest in December–may not be the revenue monster than investors are hoping for. Some investors see the Overwatch League as adding significant revenue to Activision Blizzard's bottom line, but Cowen says it's too early to say if this will be the case.
"We think esports [profit and loss] expectations for 2018 are low, but we also think OWL needs to demonstrate that it can attract a significant audience,"

Basically all these idiots who invested in Activision are going to end up getting fucked over big time come next year. They all got suckered in by what Kotick was doing and now they're gonna pay the price.

Recently I made the horrible mistake of commenting on Youtube. It was video discussing the lootboxes for Battlefield 2. I said to boycott them and play BF2 Classic as that's a mechanically more sound product anyway. While many agreed, you still had people sucking their dick just to play the game. Someone told me the newest game is better because "When sniping you can see scope glare on other snipers aiming down their barrel at you. I'll stop at that simple example of attention to detail.". Like that's just a basic game mechanic man, not an attention to detail. Especially when it looks like a damn star is just sitting on the screen that's so bright that it's impossible to miss it.

Lootbox Gifting

See, no matter how hard you push and manipulate your customers, some of them just will never engage in microtransactions. They're either too poor or too principled to fall for such obvious jew tactics. That's why so many of these games rely on their whale populations to subsidize the purchases of those who don't pay.

But they are only paying for themselves…

Imagine you're a whale playing on a team of friends, and your group is doing badly, because the algorithm fucked your matchmaking. Your tempted to get microtransactions to help you play better, but in a team based game, you can't carry your squad alone… yet your friends refuse to spend money on microtransactions. What do you do? You buy them FOR YOUR FRIENDS, so that they can do better and win the next match.

And that's just the day to day… they can also offer loot box bundles in digital stockings for christmas you can give to your friends, or in giftwraping for their birthday. Shit, 8 motherfucking days and nights of Lootbox gifting during Hanukkah.

Gook shit already has this. Matchmaking isn't balanced at all either. If you didn't pay several thousand dollars you will lose. Even if you play 16h a day you will never compete.

You've already seen the early stages of it user.
Unnecessary grinding in crafting or a low amount of experience from killing enemies
with the offer to make these moments a breeze with level up purchase or lootbox filled with high end items
Also time saver packs in any racing & sports game

See Dead Space 3, Shadow of war, Destiny

So people sent emails over Sonic Mania's Denuvo and Ys' bad localization.
How would that even work with Activision?
Even if they never use the patent for fear of bad PR/backlash- could they just sell the Patent to someone else who doesn't give a fuck?

Having the patent owned by someone who doesn't want to us it is better than no patent and everyone does it.
