The launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 last November aroused countless conflicting controversies. Many opinions criticize Activision Blizzard for its superficiality, lack of quality and content, making this blockbuster unable to meet initial expectations. Even one of the points that makes the success of the Call of Duty series, the multiplayer fighting mode, is also facing countless sarcasm, all because of its matchmaking mechanism.
Inherently, the matchmaking mechanism has encountered countless controversies throughout previous Call of Duty versions. To the point where many gamers even ask Activision and Infinity Ward to provide detailed information about how they match players, when sometimes the difference in skills is too large and creates extremely difficult matches. difference. Remember, Call of Duty was initially very famous for creating a balanced matchmaking mechanism based on player skills, similar to Apex Legends or Fortnite. The developers themselves rarely share their rules, but according to many sources, it will be based on indicators such as kill/kill ratio, points per minute, total wins and latency when looking for a match.
It sounds perfect, but reality proves the opposite when many gamers are dissatisfied with the team division and matchmaking that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 brings. The quality of the matches has not been improved too much, instead making gamers feel like they are wasting their time having to experience some games that are too boring. Blizzard themselves then had to say that they have been working on this matchmaking mechanism for more than 10 years, and are currently still looking for ways to improve it.
But such general statements do not bring much value to players. The wave of opposition to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been going on loudly in recent times. This has been a burning problem with the Call of Duty series for a long time, and it may be difficult for Blizzard to change this overnight.
