I mean, you brought up my signature to prove some kind of point.


I brought it up because I thought it was funny, for maybe different reasons than you intended it to be funny.

Anyhow, as far as you joining 4 or 5 in a row in progress ... maybe stay in a lobby between games?


I do that as much as possible.

Always kind of blown away when we have a really good back and forth close match, and half the people leave to try and find a "better lobby".

Honestly I love the game, still very much entertained when I play. My only complaint is team balancing. I wouldnt care if all I ever fought were tryhards that were better than me as long as the games were close/exciting.

Regularly joining into matches where the team I join is getting pummeled, always mercenary, so premade groups dont affect this.

Wouldnt demand a change or anything, I know team balancing isnt easy in any video game, but I'd be really interested to know how they do their balancing.

They do it about like how you'd expect - sort the lobby by some metric like KD/SPM, put a few "good" players on each team, a few "mid tier" players on each team, and a few "low tier" players on each team. It's just that there is such a large variability in game-to-game performance, for a lot of impossible to predict and control reasons, that sorting by an averaged metric like overall KD or SPM will still lead to major imbalances from game to game.

I'd like to believe that and I know people have off games but sometimes wtf. When I join a game thats already half way done and manage to come top on my losing team using the semi auto pistol I really gotta question it. I'm no pro but above average.

Who is to say the "good" players on that team weren't the ones that left so you could join? You know that's a possibility, even a likelihood. They got killed twice in a row and raged out.

I agree with the viewpoint that the matchmaking is poor. This entire double XP wknd I have only seen one-sided matches. Not even close matches. No lead changing matches. Very little drama to it.

While I also agree the matchmaking can be poor at times, (had some major blowouts recently) I’ve had 2 draws and at least a dozen 1-2 point match win/loss over the past weekend

Anyone know if it’s still 2XP? Mine is but not sure if it’s related to having left my system on overnight

Edit: 2XP ends at 12Pm CT

The game right now seems unplayable unless your on the spawn killing team. People just run right into them. The weapon balancing sucks. Black out is crap. Ive completely empty clips into people with no armor and they don't die. This is the worst time I've ever had with a COD game alot of it makes no sense why they don't fix anything. Matchmaking I'm put in to a domination game that's 20 to 100 unusually and the team killed each other to get kicked.

Heh....same....i wonder how the hype will be built this year.
CoD, never again. Good ridance.

They're going to hype up the name, showing characters that people that were dead for more nostalgia, and promote no specialists. They're going to hype all that up so people forget about their monotization, poor support of this year's game, and all of the other issues that we've had even for years. Hell, I don't see connections getting any better for people who aren't on the same coast.

A new hype will be born, as a politican waving victory signs as if its last management years were perfect. Yes i believe i found the perfect analogy for cod. A politician with new promises every campaign. After i pre-ordered ww2 i swore never to buy cod again. Yet here i am. Frustraded, mad, sad after all.

We know, and we're sad about your weakness, too.
