Ranked matches?

Been playing AOE3 since 2007ish. Just really getting into the DE version now and the one thing that’s bugging me is the lack of any form of ranking in the “browse games” section. I used to love being able to up my rank and know the level of players I’m against, which can also help with making teams fair. I usually play 2v2 or 3v3. I tried doing the matchmaker for a 2v2 but it was taking forever, is it possible to find a 2v2 or 3v3 match in the matchmaker? Before I waste my hours trying, lol.


I just played today and took me like 3 minutes to get a 2v2 ranked match.
Way easier and faster than searching for lobbies.

Note that you can also queue for multiple modes at the same time.


Sweet. Cheers for the input/tip! Must’ve just been not many players online when I tried before.

3/3 is nearly impossible in quicksearch and there aren’t many lobby games either.
