This thread's purpose is to gather more thoughts on Matchmaking and how it should work.
Toribash development team is currently focused on making the Matchmaking system work as you would expect a proper matchmaking to, and we would like to make sure our current plans fit community's desires and views on it. Any thoughts and new ideas are welcome and will be considered.
What is currently planned to be implemented:
Ranked - a "first to 3" duel
No mod choice - players get to fight in randomly selected mods (mod changes each fight). Draft mod list: aikidobigdojo.tbm, taekkyon.tbm, lenshu3ng.tbm (or rk-mma.tbm), judofrac.tbm
Brown belt restriction
Seasonal rank resets (3 months for season length)
No daily rank 1 reward. Instead, weekly rewards for top n players or one-time reward at the end of the season.
Matchmaking being the only way to rank up.
Unranked - a "first to 2" duel
Pick the mod group to play
No belt restriction
We also plan to disable daily rank 1 rewards for now as it has turned into "farm rank without getting caught" fest.
It doesn't mean that everybody with top ranks farmed their way up, but Event Squad members have to deal with rank-related reports on almost a daily basis. We may still reward top players in some way.

That just allows someone to ignore other mods and only be "decent" at one specific mod. Matchmaking should challenge you and make you go outside your comfort zone to improve as a player. If you want to play a specific mod, you can always make your own server.
Also, I think boxshu_mushu_v3.tbm should be included in the mods as it is a very popular mod for duels and regular play.

To Be Quite Honest, This Sounds Like A Fair Update To The Matchmaking System.
I've Always Had The Idea That In Certain Rooms/Tournaments, Multiple Tori's Are Put Into A Fight Much Quicker. You Can Say Its Like The "Quick Match" To Toribash, Where it Puts You In A Fight Almost IMMEDIATELY. BUT! There Must Be An Even Number Of Tori's In The Room.
Example: 4 Tori's In One Tournament 2 Tori's Fight While The Other Two Do The Same
Because What It Does, Is That It Makes The Tournament Speed Up. Instead Of Having To Wait So Long To Lose, The Rounds Are 2 Times Faster, Meaning Getting Your Face Mashed Into A Pulp Is Much Faster Now! If you call me a faggot a magical cookie will appear and become your pet
