Matchmaking is so broken.

ID: h8pk4rz

It’s the worst matchmaking in any multiplayer game by far. It’s shocking

ID: h8prm31

Do you know if the devs have spoken about it? or are they happy with how it is right now? Because it's one of the worst MM I've experienced.

You won't complain about SBMM if you can't see teammates ranks. Outstanding move

Arena matches by MMR, not by rank. makes sense and actually fucks over smurfs.

ID: h8pm8px


What is MMR lol. All I found online was the Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine

ID: h8ow6e5

"yeah so crazy idea guys but what if we um don't show the ranks??"

Kinda same thing with Overwatch when they introduced role queue, they removed the way to see who's grouped up. So an obviously 6 stacked team will have an advantage over a group of randoms.

This is hilarious and disappointing, but did you win?

ID: h8ocxyk

The first time yes the second time we got to sudden death but we choked the rush

ID: h8ovvro

I encounteredthis today too, me and my silver friend invited the teammate to find out hes platinum..

ID: h8o5dxn

no OP, but something like that happened to me, i am diamond, and my teammates were 2 ranks below, so i couldnt queue up with them after they added me after the match.

they promised to play with me still when they catch up though, so thats good.

Only one phrase can describe this scene: The game was rigged from the start.

And people have the nerve to say that those of us that complain about matchmaking only want wins. We don't want wins we want fair games. And with this post you can fucking see that the game matchmakING unfairly against it's OWN MM RULES.

From where you're kneeling it must seem like an 18-carat run of bad luck.

They need to figure it out

ID: h8p079y

This is planned. Your teammates and enemies are chosen by 2 numbers, your rank and MMR. MMR is hidden to the players but MMR also determines how much RP you get

ID: h8pbbzz

mmr determines RP?? huhh isnt it fixed???

Really thought ranked would lead to the solo experience improving but there seems to be no difference.

Some games I win 3-0 with 9 kills and others I'm getting steamrolled by the opponents while my teammates run off in opposite directions

ID: h8p8tzq

I lost a game with 13 kills smh

This is because Ranked Arenas uses the invisible MMR to match you with teammates/opponents but the party limitation uses your visible rank.

These guys have a similar invisible MMR to you so you matched with them twice, but they haven't played enough yet for their rank to catch up.

ID: h8osxrp

A gold player should be able to queue with a plat player, right?

ID: h8ow6yk

wait so if im good enough to fight preds can i literaly be a hardstuck gold/plat? im probally misunderstanding the system but if that is how it works thats gonna be painful...

ID: h8oww54

No, if your invisible MMR is that high but your rank is gold/plat you'll still be getting 100ish AP per win.

ID: h8p6nb8

I HIGHLY doubt that the two level 48 teammates that I had in my last game in plat 2 had the same MMR as me. They couldn't stay alive for more than 2 secs. The matchmaking is utter shite. Unplayable as a solo.

Interesting I’m currently diamond 2 and I was playing with two people (one was bronze and the other gold) and I was able to que up with them

ID: h8osuht

This explains my shit teammates.

ID: h8p69hd

And my probably platinum enemies (I just got to silver)

ID: h8p0iy9

When was this? I was able to queue with any rank (in both BR and arena) up until the prowler nerf patch two days ago.

It is because their mmr is close to your mmr hence the matchmaking.

The party restrictions doesn't look at mmr (we can't see our mmr so it would be confusing trying to queue together). Instead party restrictions only looks at current rank.

This is a admittedly a strange outlier situation that is possible because of the mmr system. Overall mmr system is a good system which is why many games use it, but like all systems it does have it's drawbacks this being one of them.

Where’s the “Dev Reply Inside!” on this one?

12 : Anonymous2021/08/12 13:55 ID: h8nl3xb

Was it ranked though? When you’re in ranked it shows the rank below your teammates. I think it was marked as ranked in your team with friends then they left and you became the host so it switched to trios by default

ID: h8nl8du

yeah it doesn't show ranks in arenas which is suspicious

ID: h8noc4w

This is very much the reason

ID: h8nlgdb

even when it shows you're squads banners it doesn't show their rank

ID: h8oom7p

Actually no it doesn’t.

I get a similar problem on siege. Both me an buddy are ranked. But itll tell him hes unranked. Make him play a game. Then put him at his original rank an we play very next game. Lol. So stupid an time wasting.

Played a game last night, I’m in Gold 4, one teammate in plat 1 and one in Bronze4 I fucking hate this game sometimes.

15 : Anonymous2021/08/12 19:54 ID: h8p0jwo

Why don't you see their ranks?

ID: h8p191d

They don't want you to see that you have low teammates

Get the fuck out of here already with your matchmaking Respawn

17 : Anonymous2021/08/12 20:50 ID: h8p993k

To no ones surprise their matchmaking is completely broken here as well

18 : Anonymous2021/08/12 20:55 ID: h8pa081

yeah, if youre a high level in arenas ranked, youll get bronze/silver teammates, if you a low level, youll get pred teammates
