what are the odds?

Postby littlebigleg on Sun Mar 11, 2018 1:50 pm

if me (Xbox) and my mate (PC) with cross network on, And are the same rank in solo standard,and have the exact same mmr score,And we press find game at the exact same time,maybe do it when the population is low,what do you think are the odds of getting in the same game? Anyone tried this before?

Wow, that really is a good question. But it depends also on your internet connection. I guess we say, you got an equal connection and your location is next to each other. I would say that the odds in general are not high, but will certainly rise with the given conditions.
I tried a similar thing with Fortnite-Battle Royale for example and I could not manage to get into the same game as a mate, and we tried a few times. So, I would say it is quite unlikely, the lower the population the more probable it would be of course.

12 people in the same PUBG solo match sounds pretty funny.
If you are lucky, it also works in Rocket League.

depends on your rank (there are more people in gold than grand champ, for example), time of day, connection/location

I've been in a discord chat with PC and PS4 friends before and 2 of us on PC ran into the guy on PS4 in ranked 2s :P not even trying to either it just happened lol. I've also stream sniped several GCs/pros late at night

it's not difficult at all, especially if you're geographically close to each other. The fact that you have crossplay on might change the odds in either direction but believe me, if you are within 20 mmr of someone and you are geographically close to them, you can purposely queue into each other at least 50% of the time.

solo standard is quite easy to queue together, just turn on whatsapp call or w/e you use and only let the game join when youre both joining at the same time :D

I believe it mostly depends on the rank of both players
lower ranks up to mid plat, i'd say your chances are pretty low. The sole amount of players waiting in queue, plus the matchmaker trying to balance MMRS for Dia/Champ/Gcs will in some case consider you for some uneven matches.
Your chances greatly improve at DII and above as the pool of players is quite scarce. Given you and your partner are not all that far apart in rank

For the record, teaming up in PUBG Solos is a bannable offense, as it's considered a blatant form of cheating.

Fair comment, When i tried it out i didn't think it would work,But on that point i suppose trying to join solo standard with friends would be slightly on the dodgy side as well

This is allowed in PUBG Solos. Getting into the same game isn't the issue; teaming up, however, is. So, by all means, kill your friends as much as you want.
