Yesterday, the beta of this year’s Call of Duty debuted on PlayStation 4, but not everyone is having fun in it.
First players can check the beta of this year’s edition of Call of Duty from yesterday. Treyarch has prepared many new features for players, including new modes and many changes, such as adjusting the field of view. Despite the promise of many improvements, not everyone is enjoying the fun. Players complain about matchmaking in the selection of people with similar skills. The problem with SBMM (skill-based matchmaking) became so serious that it quickly began to gain popularity in social media.
Many multiplayer games use skill-based matchmaking to provide players of all abilities with a similar experience. The assumption is that people with better skills should not play with novices who are just learning the game, because the latter will be doomed to failure in advance. Rookies have to play with each other, and experience players with each other. However, reality shows that creating the perfect matchmaking system is not easy, with Black Ops Cold War being the latest victim.
It is worth remembering that by the premiere, matchmaking issues may be eliminated. This is why the developers organize beta tests of their title to catch all the comments and refine the game before the premiere.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will debut on the market on November 13, 2020. The game will be released on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and next-generation consoles – Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
