Can someone please explain the matchmaking that happened here? If you're here to troll, just move along. I'm seriously trying to understand what the hell is happening.

2 Level 4 players with average to below average gear against two reputation 1 players.

Now we've upped the anty and added in a Rep 2 player to go with a Rep 1 player.

This poor dude is in this match all alone and my team is 4 strong coming into the game. Not good for him

It's crazy that the unbalance can swing that bad.


We've all been there.
Not sure how the game does it at the moment, based on that ever hard to define mythical stat known as 'skill'
Whatever that means.

I don't think skill based matchmaking is enabled, it just tries to connect you people with the lowest latency.

It says it is trying to match you with people of the same skill, but it could be lying I suppose.
Regardless, what does it call 'skill' - that is the problem and usually a game trying to give a numerical value to 'skill' so it can matchmake you is where it all goes wrong.

I dont trust that thing, but i never once got matched someone with my skill it always goes to looking at all skill levels, it doesn't even find groups in extended search.

Notice how it starts out looking for player skill as "strict" then changes to "extended" and then changes to "all skill levels". My assumption is that they try and base it off KD and win loss ratios. I've been in matches identical to the pictures above. Or why does one side get a full team and the other side gets 3 bots?! Why not continue searching for other players? Or why does it kick you after a match when only two or three players are left and it says there aren't enough players in the match. Why can't it just search for more? Unfortunately there is a lot about this game that needs explaining.

OMG YES! I cannot stand when I have a party of 4 sitting in a lobby and it boots us because the other team left. How about just matchmaking again?
