The team splits are so garbage. Found I can almost always predict a loss looking at how the people are split. Quite often my team having 4 guys under level 44 (no ninja?) vs other team all at least 1st prestige.

Not talking bout close games, those are fine. The blow out type.

And once most players are all levelled up, you’ll start blaming their stats rather than their low levels.

Its the same christmas noobs cycle every year. You’d think people would relay back to the last COD they played and just project their experience into the current one.

Because the performance based matchmaking puts the best average players in the lobby on the other team, and thinks you can carry an entire team full the lower average players after you start playing well.

Skill based wouldn't be so bad if the lobbies were balanced. But this s*** where they put all the worst players in the lobby on the team with the a player who's performing well is just blatantly unfair.

@Xeed-HP OK fair enough that's my recent example and common but even then other teams gets prestige XXX guys and my team full of 1st prestige. People playing before xmas.

@sadiztic666 its weird dont see why it cant be more fair say best player gets worst, 2nd best gets second to worst etc or something else to get it more even. That's assuming their stats are not hugely different.

I read the title wrong. I thought you said BSDM, not SBMM.
You can pick your battles, and you can pick your nose. But you can't pick your battle's nose.

Maybe there is no SBMM? If there were, how would chumps be in lobbies with skilled players?

@DementedDurian I dont know what the point of BDSM is either but hey if it floats ya boat, lol

@Machine1136 thats a good point, that's made me question it too. But I do swear this game hates me with match making

Does anyone notice SBMM is toned down?

I just played 5 matches and there were a lot of low level players in them and people who are just generally not that good, which hasn't happened since the first day of release.

Do you think they toned it down for the Christmas people so they don't quit the game right away?

Or is it just good players who got the game late, who are low levels and haven't unlocked anything?
