I recently thought of a neat idea that may address one of the biggest problems with Sect. Match fixing.
To my surprise players actually plan Sect matches with friends for practice. From my understanding this isn’t what the Sect arena is for. City arenas are perfectly capable when friends would like to spar for practice.
But within Sect whoever places a challenge should be prepared to fight any warriors ready to step forward. In order to improve the integrity of the rank system, I thought of a very simple idea that should be easy to implement.
A Sect Pool. Whenever a challenge is placed, a 30 second to 1 minute timer begins. During this time anyone can accept this challenge and when the time runs out. BAM! RNG kicks in and places you with a random player from the pool.
This small improvement would get rid of the possibility of planned Sect matches. Eventually multiple Sect instances could be made as well.
