Hello folks.  I see the multiplayer alternate or team leaderboards are populated, but I've never been able to find one to play in when matchmaking?  I end up playing head to head instead.

I don't know if it's not working, or if it's just not enough players choosing that option.

Alternate shot matchmaking doesn't work, we had 4 guys searching all at the same time to meet up but it wouldn't connect

That's quite disappointing considering they claim to have tested these new modes of play, during betas.

I tested alt-shot, via private matchmaking during the beta stress test and it worked fine.  I don't recall whether it was even an option for public, alt-shot matchmaking during beta testing for the weekend that it lasted.  I've tried numerous times to get into a public matchmaking alt-shot match since the game released and have failed to get one.  I have heard from a few players who have though.

This is a perfect case for public betas. Surely, all of the matchmaking modes have to be tested prior to release.

I guess there's always next year, to get the game release right - the first time.

It would be nice if the menu would display how many people are currently tied in to the Alt-Shot matchmaking pool.  If I didn't see any numbers there, or maybe only one, you'd know your chances were pretty slim at that time.
