Matchmaking with FlexMatch

Use Amazon GameLift FlexMatch to add player matchmaking to your games. FlexMatch pairs the matchmaking service with a customizable rules engine. This lets you design how to match players together based on player attributes and game modes that make sense for your game, and rely on FlexMatch to manage the nuts and bolts of forming player groups and placing them into games.

In addition, FlexMatch builds on the Queues feature. Once a match is created, FlexMatch hands the match details to a queue of your choice. The queue then searches for available hosting resources on your Amazon GameLift fleets and starts a new game session for the match.
