Matchmaking?

Is anyone else experiencing unbalanced matchmaking? I have a K/D that hovers around 2 and I am at 55 (not planning on prestiging for quite a while), and recently I have been placed into games that are far above my skill level.

For the last 2 days each game I go into consists of me getting killed almost instantly after getting one or maybe 2 kills. I don't care so much about my K/D, but I don't find it enjoyable to die constantly. I'm not sure if this is a product of the poor spawn system, bad lag compensation, or if my stats have just crossed some weird threshold that is now putting me in games that I just can't hold my own.

Just curious if anyone else has been having this happen to them lately.

Whats your SPM?

I've noticed when my SPM goes above 350 I often get put into lobbies with the super tryhards/full parties. Then when I "squat" my SPM down on purpose below 350 I usually get put in lobbies with just random "above average" players.

I'm curious what Treyarch uses as thresholds for skill.

It looks like my SPM hovers around 300 depening on the gamemode.

Play Ground War every once and awhile.  It's virtually impossible for the entire lobby to be full of great players.
