  1. It's because the system isn't progressive at all. It doesn't take into account the degrees of separation between someone who's sandbagging and who's legitimately trying to get better. It's so hyper focused on stamping out pubstomping that it accelerates players who have had a couple good rounds directly into gameplay scenarios where their heavily out classed because the SBMM is focused on making someone's experience who is consistently bad a more positive experience. Even if SBMM worked correctly, it would need to be far more considerate about perhaps a player's "lifetime" (in game) progr
  2. Halo 3 had far superior ranked matchmaking. People actually had to game the system to get into lower ranks just to feel the thrill of being destroyers of lower players.
  3. No one cares about microtransactions in these games. They want progressive advancement. This current implementation of SBMM is broken. It's aggresive and it's not well attuned to players needs. It caters to the highest skillset and it makes everyone else feel like ass. It throws mediocre players up against players who are actually good enough to stand up against hackers in a matter of 2 or 3 games, and they spend 5 or more games in misery wondering why they're getting completely dredged. SBMM has no nuance or any sense of what it means when players are just "bad" and someone isn't "Good"
  4. Let's start with the obvious. If someone is uniquely skilled, they will be detected by a SBMM system and move up progressively. Think of it like the old fighting games of yore. You might have beasted level 1, but by level 6 you are struggling. The problem with CoD's SBMM is it just throws you from level 1 to level 99 because you maced the whole room. It has no progression, it has no sense of achievement. You just go from Hack to Wack in one game. This is not skill based match making, it's point based freakanomics. I score better than my team because I do objectives, suddenly I'm in the headsho
