NETWORK Adjustments — PS4 | Xbox One | Steam

  • Online Matchmaking will now prioritize finding opponents near your rank. If a match cannot be found in a reasonable amount of the time, the search will automatically enlarge the scope of the search criteria to help you find a match. (This change is made to the PS4 and Steam version of the game only. The Xbox One will operate as usual.)
  • At the G1 Rank point and under, the amount of RP earned after a match is increased if there is a difference in Rank between the players.
