Rule Designs for Optimal Online Game Matchmaking [article]

Mingkuan Xu, Yang Yu, Chenye Wu
2019 arXiv   pre-print
By casting the mechanisms into a queueing theoretic framework, we decompose the rule design process into a sequence of decision making problems, and derive the optimal mechanism with minimum expected waiting  ...  However, a long waiting time for matchmaking will largely affect players' experiences. We examine different matchmaking mechanisms for 2v2 games.  ...  Alman and McKay lay out theoretical foundations for matchmaking, and propose a solution to extract the fairest and most uniform games in [7] .

Employing human knowledge to solve integrated coordination problems

Wei Chen, Kaizhi Tang, David Mihalcik, Yunshen Tang, Edmund Durfee, Melanie Dumas
2010 2010 International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems  
An Integrated Coordination Problem involves solving multiple related subproblems that collectively satisfy the requirements of a user, including subproblems that depend on the user's participation to solve  ...  We argue that our approach exploits concepts that straddle the boundary between collaborative technologies and multi-agent systems, and demonstrate its advantages and capabilities in the context of an  ...  or implied, of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or the Department of Defense.  ...

Engagement effects of player rating system-based matchmaking for level ordering in human computation games

Anurag Sarkar, Michael Williams, Sebastian Deterding, Seth Cooper
2017 Proceedings of the International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games - FDG '17  
An online experiment (n=294) found that both matchmaking-based and pure di culty-based ordering of tasks led to signi cantly more a empted and completed levels than random ordering.  ...  Additionally, both matchmaking and random ordering led to signi cantly more di cult tasks being completed than pure di culty-based ordering.  ...  We would like to thank the University of Washington's Center for Game Science for initial Paradox development.  ...

Building dynamic agent organizations in cyberspace

M. Tambe, D.V. Pynadath, N. Chauvat
2000 IEEE Internet Computing  
Karma's agent resources management functionality differs significantly from middle agents such as matchmakers.  ...  A key benefit of team-oriented programming is that it abstracts away from coordination details and thus alleviates the difficulty of writing large numbers of coordination plans.  ...  STEAM avoids the potentially detrimental side effects of such communication through decision-theoretic communication selectivity.  ...
