Why optimise matchmaking for live service games?

Create a great first impression

What players experience in their first match is defined by your matchmaking. Get it right, and you’ll deliver a first impression players love.

Build an engaging experience

Provide a satisfying experience so players get the best quality matches balanced with minimal wait times.

Help your game adapt and evolve

Adapt to growth by providing a flexible matchmaking service to fully customise your match rules throughout your game’s lifecycle.

Optimal matchmaking to maximise player engagement

Our IMS specialists can enable you to find the right matchmaking solution, integrate it into your existing technology stack, customise it to your needs, and design the right rules to keep your players engaged.

IMS expanded and evolved our matchmaking solution so that we’re in a much more mature place. It allowed us to go beyond what we would have been able to do as a small team.
