    Workaround for unranked "quick match"

    As of now, shadow era doesn't have an option for unranked "quick matches", i.e. a match made through the QM matchmaking system but does not affect your rating. A plausible workaround for the current version of the game client is that we can make custom games, and in order to make it so that other people can join we can set up an agreed-upon password such as "pasword", and if someone goes to the challenge tab and wants to play an unranked QM they can just try putting "password" in the passworded games on the games list. If we could get this post popular, there would be enough players such that doing this workaround would result in pretty fast matchmaking. Of course, there is no way to enforce penalties on people leaving before the match ends, which should be a feature included in unranked "quick matches" if or when it is implemented officially in the future.

    tl;dr, Reply to this post so that all of the community can see that if you want to play unranked "quick matches", just make a custom with the password "password" or join a custom with the password "password.

    "Password" is too long, you should use something shorter like "1".

    Also that wouldn't work because you will run into a lot of games that have different password and it's no way for you to know and if you're the one who hosting you will wait for a long time (probably forever) until someone will join your game, also you would have to recreate the game often to bump your game up in challenge screen.

    Conclusion: go to IRC and find partner there.

    However I would appreciate if SE had unranked match.

    It's easier to use IRC on a computer, I assume that's why.


    Yes, use IRC, it helps.

    At the quietest times, there are usually a few people actually there, and more who are just in the middle of a game. It helps to say "hi" or something when you join the room.

    And, yes, I asked about computer because it's easy to run IRC and the game via a computer.
