Ranked 2v2's and 3v3's
I was curious as to why there weren't any ranked 2v2's and 3v3's? I'd really love to play online with some friends and have it ranked. Is it possible for this feature to be added?

HowdyDonut,

We decided to remove 2v2 and 3v3 from the ranked ladder for a few reasons. The play experience in 2v2 and 3v3 is quite different then 1v1 and balancing tends to break down in 2's and 3's. The core experience is in 1v1 where all of the focus on balance is at.

Also, since TW doesn't have a team feature there was several ways to cheat the system using lower ranked partners to prop up other accounts. This was unfair to legit players that were teaming up to play games. Maybe in the future we can add support for this, but at this time its waaaaay at the bottom of the features list.

Lastly it all comes down to the amount of players playing in 2's and 3's. We just didn't see the amount of people playing in those brackets that we would have liked. keep in mind that even though 1v1 is exponentially more popular and we are continuously gathering data on games played so it isn't outside the realm of possibility that 2's and 3's will be added later :)

You mention that not many people play 2v2's and 3v3's, but couldn't that be linked to the fact that they aren't ranked? What if the system paired a bad and a good player together or there was a team option before you even got into the queue.

One thing to remember is that we used to have ranked 2's and 3's prior to the official Season 1 start. During the time up until S1 start (starting at release) we monitored 2's and 3's play and found that even though people were playing sporadically there was not enough play to garner a full ladder in either grouping. As for team creation like I mentioned above, its pretty far down on the list of new features.

Oh ok, well thanks for replying :) I hope this feature is added soon.

2v2 always felt more like it was the most balanced bracket to me, and by far the most fun..

RIP tower wars 2v2

the guys we play only with friends, and do not see the point in playing solo games ... Are you ready for all people who have spent money on the game playing in the 2x2 and 3x3 to return the money?
the more you do not watch over the situation ... there are players who do not play fair ... you do not have a tool allowing record and watch the game ... and the use of third-party programs like fraps do not give а objective assessment and also inhibit the process

and you believe that you have a good balance when a person is from 1050 - points to a man throws from 1200 +?

You are still able to play 2vs2 and 3vs3. We just do not have ranked ladders for them. As I explained above there was not enough team participation to warrant two separate ladders. We are up for potentially adding this back in the future but for now it will remain 1vs1 in ranked play only.

not interested in playing mode where no one with whom to compete, I buy my friends and play games for 2x2 and 3x3 ... and you have deprived us of the opportunity to compete with anyone ... I used to think this project nteresno and advise friends to buy it, and considered it attractive for 8 points ... and now this reytin fell to 3-4 ..

Hello Daimos - you seem frustrated about not being able to play multiplayer. While I also can feel a regret that the multiplayer bracket is not available for competitive play any more, I still would say that the chzanges were made for the best of the game overall.

Regarding your argumentastion. Well - while the words all seem like proper English words (in most cases) - the text above is quite clearly not English. So I am afraid you will have to re-formulate yourself if you want a more targetted response...

Or.. I need to go back to school to re-learn English :-)

Я исполюзую Google translate чтобы общаться... разработчики игры выпустили эту игру не только в англоязычных странах...поэтом удолжны принимать вопросы на любом языке...однако принимаю только на английском!!!!!!!!
