Skill based matchmaking has become the hot topic of conversation in the Call of Duty community once again.

Black Ops Cold War: Skill Based Matchmaking

The first beta weekend for Black Ops Cold War is in full swing.

While players jump back into the action, it appears that a controversial feature has remained for the beta.

Skill based matchmaking (SBMM) trended on Twitter for the second time after players were looking for matches based on skill as opposed to the best connection.

During the alpha, many players expressed their frustration at the system, pleading with Treyarch for some form of removal or tuning to the system.

On the beta, it appears that SBMM is still present and has been strengthened thanks to the developer adding in a spawn protection in order to prevent players from reverse boosting, a method that consists of committing suicide several times in order to be matched with players of a lesser skill.

 

While players continue to air their frustration at the system, it appears that it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

It's annoying for those wanting a casual playing experience as opposed to a fully-fledged competition similar to that of the Call of Duty League. 

We will see if it is changed when the full game releases next month.
