Doubles Matchmaking / VGC

Question

Posted (edited)

   Undoubtedly the doubles community has been growing for the past months (there is almost no tournament that doesn't fill), yet the support doubles players have is relatively zero. While singles players (except LC, which has the same issue) have matchmaking to be able to train, doubles lacks any kind of automated match finder.

   There is no point in saying it would be difficult to implement or whatever reason of that kind, since we had it in the past. Don't know why it was removed, but it was definitely a mistake. Just adding it back will give doubles tournaments a bit more of consistensy, since there are still too many unexperienced players that sign up without knowing basic doubles reasoning. They try to apply singles strategies when they don't usually work in this enviroment.

 

   Another suggestion is the implementation of VGC format. Being the official Pokémon format, it is known by many, and all the time playing in IRL tournaments could be extrapolated to MMO. Since the official rules are usually BO3 (with the exception of small tournaments, which can run BO1) + a top cut single elimination for medium to big events, playing with 4 out of 6 mons from your team, etc, I can see this being a hard task for the devs. However, it would give PokeMMO another level of competitiveness. Being a fast paced format, every turn can be decisive; your team picks are quite important, and reading your opponent is a must.

 

   Dunno what the Community/Staff think about this, will edit later if I think of anything worth adding.

It's a Great idea, also in the TT's have doubs and some people need a place to practice. not all of us can match the shcedules with official doubles tours.

Yeah I second this, I've been trying to get into doubles since starting PokeMMO because the metagame looks really well balanced, but there's virtually no way to practice for tournaments

I started playing this game just for fun, I got hooked and started looking for the competitive (I´ve played VGC format in showdown) and everyone focus on smogon rules, to me are super boring, so quit playing. So, I´ll love if they could implement VGC format

 if they host a doubles Tournaments, they also need to have a doubles matchmaking que, to test new teams and learn more about playing doubles in generell.

VGC Matchmaking deppends on the player base, not every doubles player plays VGC.
