Is Skill Based Matchmaking Gone in this Game?

I always get matched up with prestiged players always with 1.5+ Kdr, I've even seen up to 3.0! I am a terrible COD player, my rank is 46 and my Kdr is a measly 0.76. I remembered in the old games that I would get matched up with players similar to my rank and skill. :/


Note - I only play domination, I miss ground war...

May I be honest with you:

You claim to be terrible, any particular reason why?

playing vs other "terrible players" does nothing for you and your COD improvement (if thats what you want). The fact that your mentioning it means you care, if you did not care about it you would play and carry on.

Playing vs better players (even 3.0KDR) is a treat, they are the best teachers. Learn from where they shot you, how they moved, what they did. Fighting them, is the only way you can improve your game.

Fighting lesser or equal stat players will keep you there.

Man we've NEVER had skill-based matchmaking Other than the divisions in BO2

Maybe we're just unlucky in ghosts?

I usually play

Cranked

Domination

Blitz

Infected

I guess i'm just unlucky... I just keep getting frustrated that I get matchmaked with prestige tryhards with 2.5 kdr, that camp near my team's spawnpoints. In the first hours of me playing Ghost's multiplayer it felt really fun since I was getting paired up with noobs like myself, now it's just getting annoying.

Grr... hate that riot shield and C4 combination. :I

Skill based matchmaking has always been in COD. In black ops 2 it just played a bigger factor

It has never worked properly for me. Not even in black ops 2 where it was supposed to be this amazing thing.

take that opportunity to get better. playing against better players will only make you better faster.. playing with your own skill set keeps you at the same level

This depends. In my experience as a solo player, you usually get matched against a team of players that are spawn killing, so you don't get a chance to even try to get better. A solo person with a 3.0 K/D, then yeah I agree with you.

Sometimes they try but this game, in my opinion has been taken over by hackers, worse than ever before. So there's no control in match ups. Do the best you can, under the circumstances and don't give up. The more you play and the higher your points your skill will increase. Keep fighting and have fun.
