Game Finder option to find unique opponents

Postby sdh on Mon Jun 17, 2013 1:27 pm

Concise description:
Would it be possible for game finder to show games which only include players you have not defeated on the selected settings? Or alternatively an option when you create a game that only allows a player you have not defeated on selected settings to join

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Make medal hunting much easier
  • Decrease the amount of foeing involved in medal hunting
  • Allow users to avoid playing the same players over and over

Hmmm...

I don't see a downside to this initially. Maybe someone can correct me, if I'm wrong. I'm not sure about the coding or how intensive that would be to search on the server. I would think they could take the information already being used to calculate the Medal Stats data and have you be able to search for games excluding those players. The only issue with that is if you there is an 8 person game and you have one person in it that you've already beaten. So, it really should be a search for games with people that don't include the unique defeat opponents instead of an exclusion.
