Extreme Makeover: Random grouping
Posted by Psychochild's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 February 2014, 5:42 pm
I did a phone interview recently where I discussed ideas on how to improve random grouping. What I'm calling "random grouping" is perhaps best known from WoW's Dungeon Finder (Looking for Dungeon or LFD) and Raid Finder (Looking for Raid or LFR) systems, where you indicate you want to run a dungeon and you are randomly matched up with other people. I share the common lament that random grouping systems don't help players form social bonds within the game even if they would like to do so. So, let me put my designer hat on and describe a system to allow for more socialization opportunities.
