Boards Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Skill based matchmaking. Yay or nay? User Info: Should skill based matchmaking be in the game for public lobbies?

This seems like a double-edged sword. On one hand, you would essentially remove the people who overuse OP guns because they're the ones with KDRs so "less skilled lobbies" would have more diversity with weapons, maybe more fairness or at least variety, while keeping the rest quarantined up to deal with each other. On the other hand, anyone who is actually "good" at the game would be having a less than pleasant time dealing with "them" in their sectioned off lobbies, so I'd feel a little bad for them.

I honestly can't cast my vote for one side or the other in the end. When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading. GuitarGuy posted Well, you are right in that if you're not in the lobbies with the hardcore players, there's going to be way more weapon variety as the average joe is not going to soley use the Bal and AK every single match and gametype. They don't go on Youtube for class setups or post on gfaqs. But if there was no SBMM, all the more skilled players would be randomly spread out unless they're in parties.

It just becomes really old when everybody is using them and you have to use them if you want to do well and compete. HeroicBloodshed posted See, the only problem is the determining factor on which you base "skill". To be honest, KDR means essentially nothing anymore, it's just a statistic to gauge arbitrary success. If it's based on performance in-game, then all it takes is some low level using the "right" gun to have 2 good games enough to bump up his KDR , be put in a lobby with the "good" players, then immediately be crushed because all of the "good" players are using exploits against one another.

The line between good and bad is blurred when all have access to the God Gun that makes people die much faster. Plus someone could do purposely bad to be shuffled with the other not-so-skilled gamers just to completely obliterate them. See, CoD lobbies are like governments. Sure, they look functional on paper, but once put into play, that house of cards Kevin Spacey reference is going to topple due to instability and exploits.

We'll never have a "true" solution, only speculation Wow, that got philosophical fast. That's the whole point of SBMM--to pit you up against similarly if not identically skilled players. It would take a while for a high prestige player with a high SPM to lower that number on purpose. The term is called reverse boosting. Generally, though, unless you're a Youtuber looking to make money on dominating gameplays, nobody's going to really bother with that much effort involved.

And newer players who either got lucky or had a great score against other less experienced players will eventually get crushed by the good players and be bumped down to lesser competition. A weapon, no matter how OP, does not instantly make somebody who just picked up CoD into a great player. The line between good and bad players is really not that blurry, IMHO.

CoD has always been about the luck of the draw in terms of success in lobbies. If you're a skilled and experienced player, you increase your chances to dominate most random lobbies. If you're new to the game, you're going to get punished until you get better. It's really like paying your dues. I got my butt handed to me in CoD4 but I understood that I sucked and had no problem with getting matched up with better players most of the time.

I'm sorry but anyone arguing this game doesn't have sbmm go create another trial account. And go play a couple matches. You'll see the difference immediately. Yeah, when you first start out they match you up with all new players. I don't see any of those people anymore. I'm okay with a little competition but not every damn match. Getting tired of only playing tryhards who only use 3 different weapons max. Probably shouldn't be playing online, then.

You guys are a bunch of clowns. See, what I would like is playstyle based matchmaking, not necessarily skill, but it'd be a factor. Basically, pick out the people that tend to use only one weapon, one set of perks, etc. Do it such that people play others like them so that the good players who mix up their game don't have to deal with tryhards as often. They can play against other people who mix up their play so the matches can be interesting.

HeroicBloodshed HeroicBloodshed 4 years ago 1 Should skill based matchmaking be in the game for public lobbies? So there's been a lot of speculation that the lobbies are not entirely based on connection like in previous CoDs. Instead, they are matching people up with other players of similar skill ala Black Ops 2. It looks to be SPM based but that's just me speculating.

Honestly, if I wanted to play against good players all the time I would play ranked matches. It just takes the fun out of it. I get matched with high prestige players every single lobby, every single match I've played over 20 hours of this game and only encountered new players or split-screeners a few times. And that was during the first few days after launch.

It's like these people don't even exist anymore. I understand it's better for new players to not get completely destroyed by experienced players but it's just not fun when there's a low chance for you to completely dominate when everybody in the lobby is just as good as you are or better. The noobs can and will get better without playing against only other new players if they're dedicated enough.

If you've played CoD for a while, you've been there and done that. GuitarGuy GuitarGuy 4 years ago 2 This seems like a double-edged sword.

a blog post on SHGames's site talking about the most popular topic in Advanced Warfare – Skill Based Matchmaking. In a lengthy statement. They wont respond but we have all noticed it. Been playing COD since the first one and if they dont remove this sbmm no one i know will be.

Activision Support reporting for duty! How may I help you today? Hello Michael, please go ahead and ask away, let me know how can I be of help? It sure is mostly for matchmaking on Ranked Play, but on casual play there are many other parameters that affect the matchmaking 4m 12s kendall c: For example leveling, prestige levels, availability and connectivity 4m 19s Michael Vennik:

In a lengthy statement, Condrey states that connection is still a priority and that the matchmaking system currently in Advanced Warfare resembles previous Call of Duty titles, but Advanced Warfare does consider player skill while matchmaking to level the playing field. Fast connection to a match hosted on our global dedicated servers is the most important component of our matchmaking system.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is a first-person shooter video game Remastered by Raven Software and published by Activision. For a more detailed explanation of these rules, please visit our Rules Wiki Page. Discussion Skill Based matchmaking is a disgrace self. It's so obvious what the devs are trying to do: I don't even bother with anything other than FFA anymore, and when I give team gametypes a chance, I regret it almost instantly. I've played 3 matches and each one has been full party after full party vs people on my team who just picked up a controller yesterday, and every match just a spawn trap camp fest where I am on the wrong side of it because infinity ward happens to think I'm the Michael Jordan of call of duty and that these teams are somehow fair.

I know that this is a topic that has been talked about by a lot of different people, but I wanted to share my 2 cents about it. For one, it makes it a lot more difficult to advance your game.

They wont respond but we have all noticed it. Been playing COD since the first one and if they dont remove this sbmm no one i know will be playign this game in the next few months.

Skill based matchmaking needs to go. The game was great fun when it came out until SBMM was put in it. Every game I'm struggling to even get a UAV. Every game you have to try your ass off and it's ridiculous. And play against the same types of players everyone else is playing with. To have a good game u hav to try ur ass off and it makes the game a lot lesss fun. No one knows one way or the other if it is. The people that say it is, have no proof, the people that say it isn't, have no proof. Based on how deceptive and dishonest on how they advertised their game I would not trust the devs or Activision for a second. Knowing Condrey's cryptic way, in a way he might be telling the truth, maybe it is truly matching players that have better stats based on their ping putting them at a disadvantage connection wise against players with lower stats, that would make what he is saying somewhat truthful but still very deceptive if that was really what was happening. I think iirc, I should connect to the same server as you

Advanced Warfare — Skill Based Matchmaking Opinion

Он попробовал встать, но настолько выбился из сил, что не смог ступить ни шагу и долго сидел, изможденный вконец, на каменных ступеньках, рассеянно разглядывая распростертое у его ног тело. Глаза Халохота закатились, глядя в пустоту. Странно, но его очки ничуть не пострадали. Странные очки, подумал Беккер, увидев проводок, который тянулся от ушных дужек к коробочке, пристегнутой к брючному ремню.

Но он настолько устал, что ему было не до любопытства. Сидя в одиночестве и собираясь с мыслями, Беккер посмотрел на кольцо на своем пальце. Зрение его несколько прояснилось, и ему удалось разобрать буквы.

Беккер достал блокнот. - Итак, начнем с утра. Расскажите мне, что произошло. Старик вздохнул. - Очень печальная история.

О небо. Только подумайте. Беккер встревожился: - Так кольца у вас. - Боже мой, конечно. Беккер ощутил тупую боль в желудке. - У кого же. В глазах Клушара вспыхнуло возмущение.

Advanced Warfare — Skill Based Matchmaking Opinion

Человек ослабил нажим, еще раз взглянул на прикрепленную к спинке кровати табличку с именем больного и беззвучно выскользнул из палаты. Оказавшись на улице, человек в очках в тонкой металлической оправе достал крошечный прибор, закрепленный на брючном ремне, - квадратную коробочку размером с кредитную карту. Это был опытный образец нового компьютера Монокль, разработанного ВМС США для проверки напряжения аккумуляторов в труднодоступных отделениях подводных лодок - миниатюрный аппарат, совмещенный с сотовым модемом, последнее достижение микротехнологии.

Его визуальный монитор - дисплей на жидких кристаллах - был вмонтирован в левую линзу очков. Монокль явился провозвестником новой эры персональных компьютеров: благодаря ему пользователь имел возможность просматривать поступающую информацию и одновременно контактировать с окружающим миром.

Это совсем просто, Сьюзан, мы позволим правде выйти за эти стены. Мы скажем миру, что у АНБ есть компьютер, способный взломать любой код, кроме Цифровой крепости, - И все бросятся доставать Цифровую крепость… не зная, что для нас это пройденный этап. Стратмор кивнул: - Совершенно.  - Повисла продолжительная пауза.  - Прости, что я тебе лгал.

Попытка переделать Цифровую крепость - дело серьезное и хлопотное. Я не хотел тебя впутывать.
