After lots of testing, this is how the matchmaking will work for this season: First of all, the zones come back at a range of 300 points each.
From Dark Corners to Polit Arena, you will only be able to fight players that have a maximum of 600 points of distance from you (aka, a maximum of 2 zones of distance).
Once you enter Z Palace (1500+ points), you will be able to fight only players in Polit Arena or Z Palace. Once you advance in Z Palace and reach higher scores, you will only be able to play against other players in Z Palace.
This method should solve all issues of not receiving enough points when winning, and should allow everyone to always find opponents with quick battle.
A little update to the list of EFC bans could take place later in the week. Stay tuned!
