I’ve never truly understood how this works. Does it go by your Re-Up level?? That obviously wouldn’t make sense since some peoplw primarily play PVE, so if they were to hop into a PVP, that shouldn’t be the determining factor.
For Ranked it’s obvious, Pre Op 7 it was your Rank/GP Score and now its based on leaderboard position, pretty straightforward.
But how exactly does Quickplay matchmaking actually work…does anyone actually know?
I get that its suppose to be random but I played a social this morning where us re-ups were against 3 white levels 3v4. Re-up doesn’t determine skill obviously but you can imagine those white levels got stomped…probably not the best social experience lol.
God, I hope it doesn’t work like this. There is a ELO or whatever is called system that assigns you a skill level and then places you in matches where everyone has the same level. Clearly this is not working right now but TC already acknowledged it and promised a fix.
As for quickplay, the first match you’re placed into is 100% random and it will stay that way most of the time with a little tweak here and there. At times I get the impression the system tries to level up the field using the data from the previous match (it switches teams for some players) but the next match starts 4v1 (no stacks) so you realize it was just a fluke.
Likely whomever is available. And not really matchmaking, but once you’re in a game, the MVP of that game will be paired with the worst player in the game for the next one. I think that’s how they try to make it “fair”.
