I think they have matchmaking on a dial of skill basis for lobbies and they decide whether to turn it up high or leave it low, so you have lobbies with all total noobs and lobbies with all sweaty tryhards.

Usually they had the dial set at 50% from either group, but now they raised to to the MAX. who knows why they did that.

Yeah, it's just a big, ratiometric dial with "noobs" on one side and "sweats" on the other. That's exactly what the testing indicates.

Apparently the SBMM is stronger in public than in league play, lol.

They turned it to max from aw onwards , the series has been around for so long it has plenty of vets playing and was getting harder and harder to keep new players interested when they were getting pub stomped every game.

Sbmm is there to keep new players and build on the player base by putting you vs the same skill players rather than coming in new and facing off against 10 year vets and having a horrible time with the game, moving on quickly and not buying the next 1.

Sad reality is its turned the game for anyone half decent into a sweat fest and killed the enjoyment of mixed lobbies, even if you was good it wasnt like you would win every game unless u had a crew of sweats with you but as time passed that became the norm and is another reason sbmm was implemented.

Bottom line the good old days of cod are dead especially for good solo players, battle royale is where the cash is and will be the main focus moving on and we basically need a new fps from to freshen things up at this point.

nah you could still carry games in MW playing solo if you're good enough, I literally got 3 chopper gunners and vtols in scrapyard while my team was getting curbstomped and turned the match around

Yeah we get why it's there, but it's not right and sucks the fun out this game. I used to get stomped in Black Ops 1 and MW2 but I took it on myself to get better and it became one of my favorite gaming series.

Problem is I'm getting older and have different priorities in life than sitting all day on CoD. I'm still decent at the game but I dont care about my K/D and really just like grinding camos now. Yet I'm still getting some of the hardest lobbies I've seen in CoD.
Whoever beats my score I will give them a $10 PSN or Live card:
