Vanguard players have found a way to work around the skill-bases matchmaking system.
Call of Duty fans recently took part in the Vanguard beta when it went live over a week ago, experiencing what the title has to offer before it officially launches in early November.
It seems players quickly found a way to bypass the game’s skill-based matchmaking system, although we are pretty sure the devs will be working hard to rectify this issue before the games official release.
Call of Duty fans who pre-ordered Vanguard were granted early access to the multiplayer beta, which gave them a first look at the SBMM system and now it seems that players are loosing on purpose in a bid to bypass the system completely.
Players have been purposely loosing matches so that the SBMM will automatically sort them into lower skill lobbies, this will then give them the chance to tear through players who are fairly new to the game.
This puts newer players immediately at a disadvantage while they are still trying to learn the ropes of the game.
Gabe Hernandez took to Twitter on behalf of Sledgehammer Games to say “A note about feedback: We see it all. We welcome it all. We consider it all. Be constructive and descriptive. Share your reasoning with us. We’re listening.”
So, it looks like Sledgehammer are aware of the issue and likely have plans to tackle the issue ahead of the games official release.
The SBMM system has been met with a lot of mixed reviews from fans, it will be interesting to see what changes are made before the game releases in November.
