Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – Why Skill-Based Matchmaking is here to stay
Skill-based matchmaking (SBMM), a system that aims at matching players of similar skill level within the same game, was implemented into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019). The aim is to create a more balanced experience for everyone, as lower skilled players get separated and shielded from highly skilled ones. However, the vocal Call of Duty community hates the system, want it removed and do not hesitate to let developers know about it on a daily basis. It turns out the system actually offers significant benefits for the companies and games implementing it and as a result, it seems clear that Skill-Based Matchmaking is here to stay. Here is why.
