General Matchmaking Changes in For Honor 1.17

  • Skill values for Matchmaking will be rebalanced. This concerns all unranked modes. Your first matches after this change are applied are likely to match you against a wider variety of players than you would normally expect for your skill level. During this short period the Skill Comparison on the Face Off screen will be inaccurate as well. After these first few (10-20) matches the system will realign you to your proper Skill rating. The objective of this rebalancing is to allow people returning to the game after some time away to not find themselves steamrolled in matches with much more skilled players.

Ranked Dominion Updates

  • Creation of a new “Ranked” Front on the War Map that is composed of Ranked Dominion Beta and Duel Tournaments Beta. This was done to increase the visibility of our ranked activities and bring more players to the modes.
War Map Fronts will now be as follows:

DUEL & BRAWL front:

  • -1v1 Duel
  • -2v2 Brawl

BATTLE front:

  • -4v4 Tribute
  • -4v4 Dominion
  • -4v4 Deathmatch

RANKED front:

  • -4v4 Dominion Ranked
  • -1v1 Duel Tournament Beta
Matchmaking Update for Dominion Ranked Qualifier Matches.
  • For Honor 1.17 addresses a bug which was giving players a “hidden” rank during the Qualifiers which made it difficult to successfully matchmake after completing the first match.

Previously, update 1.16 was released with Xbox One X support. Check your game update and download latest For Honor update 1.17 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
