Battlefield 2042 fans will be pleased to know that the title will not be included on of Call of Duty’s most controversial features.
Skill based matchmaking has always been a controversial topic in the Call of Duty community, for those who don’t know, the SBMM system will automatically match players of similar skill sets with each other.
In theory the system sounds like a good idea, making sure newbies don’t come face to face with veterans of the game. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always play out according to plan, SBMM causes players to find them self in a fast paced competitive experience all of the time, this makes it impossible to enjoy a casual game.
You can imagine how shocked fans were this week when well known leaker Tom Henderson Tweeted that Battlefield 2042 would not have a SBMM, which left fans confused.
He then followed up by saying “I worded this a bit confusingly “And yes, there is SBMM in #BATTLEFIELD2042 – It’s just PRIMARILY sever based.” The majority of the “SBMM” happens when you’ve found the server, it doesn’t kick in beforehand – So it’s not like COD.”
Fans were quick to compare this to other Battlefield titles where team balancing only comes into effect after a server has been located.
This means players can relax and not expect to be thrown in constant competitive matches and can actually enjoy the game.
