Activision’s Call of Duty game employs skill-based matchmaking (SBMM). This prevents new players from confronting the best and best online. It’s a good way to get players into the game, but not everyone is a fan of this practice. In a recent YouTube video, Call of Duty Pro Seth “Scump” Abner revealed that Call of Duty: Vanguard wants to abolish this practice. Scump has spoken frankly about this in the past, but in this case SBMM also reveals that it’s also hindering the creation of the type of “pub stomp” video that many fans seem to enjoy. bottom.
“Look, a lot of people ask me,” Why don’t you try such a video anymore? ” The simple and short answer to that is skill-based matchmaking, “says Scump. “You’re not going to fight 88 and 0 against other players or players of the same skill level. It’s just not happening. I know there’s a way around it, people do it But I don’t do that. It’s sad. In reality, I know people love pub stepping stones like this, but unless you refine your system and avoid it. It doesn’t really matter. Next year we’ll see what we can do. Believe me. I wish I could have a video like this. “
Last year, players noticed that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was adopting SBMM, and many used Twitter to complain. Scump was particularly dissatisfied with this decision, claiming that “SBMM does not belong to Call of Duty.” But in the midst of this controversy, Treyarch’s Martin Donlon responded to a tweet from a fan, revealing that all games since Call of Duty 4 have somehow implemented SBMM. .. Fans aren’t always happy with how SBMM is implemented, but SBMM has been in the series for a very long time and hasn’t been added recently. Given that, it seems unlikely that it will be gone soon, but you’ll probably see some tweaks for the new game!
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC on November 5th.
