What does it mean to have a single team or multiple teams in GameLift FlexMatch

0

There's a lot of ways to do teams when configuring ruleset that I'm confused as to what is the right way to do it. Essentially I'm creating a 1v1 matchmaking. What's the correct way to define teams?

 "teams": [
    {
      "name": "user",
      "maxPlayers": 1,
      "minPlayers": 1
      "quantity": 2
    }
  ],

"teams": [
    {
      "name": "user1",
      "maxPlayers": 1,
      "minPlayers": 1
    },
   {
      "name": "user2",
      "maxPlayers": 1,
      "minPlayers": 1
    }
  ],

  "teams": [
    {
      "name": "users",
      "maxPlayers": 2,
      "minPlayers": 2
    }
  ],

In Amazon GameLift FlexMatch, the concept of "teams" refers to how players are grouped for a multiplayer match. Here's a breakdown of what it means to have a single team vs. multiple teams:

Single Team:

  1. When you configure a FlexMatch rule set for a single team, the matchmaking process focuses on finding enough players to fill a single team of a specific size.
  2. Imagine a game mode like a cooperative survival game where players work together against AI enemies. Here, you'd likely set up a single team with a defined size (e.g., 4 players)

Multiple Teams:

  1. When you configure a FlexMatch rule set for multiple teams, the matchmaking process considers forming multiple teams of a specific size.
  2. This is ideal for competitive multiplayer games like capture the flag or team deathmatch, where players are divided into opposing teams.

For a 1v1 matchmaking scenario in Amazon GameLift FlexMatch, the correct way to define teams is to configure your rule set for a single team with a team size of 2.

Then define matchmaking criteria for the players within the single team. These criteria could include: Skill level (for balanced competition) Ping (for low latency connections) Preferred game mode (optional, if applicable) Other relevant player attributes specific to your game

& for Match Formation: FlexMatch will search for players that meet the defined criteria. Once two players are found, they will be automatically placed together in the single team, essentially forming a 1v1

Hope it helps.
