The SBMM is causing a loss of purpose in ‘Call of Duty: Vanguard’ players.
The beta version of the Call to Duty: Vanguard has been released. As is customary among the community, some players are using the skill-based matchmaking system to gain an advantage over their competition.
Tsk tsk. But I have to admit that I am not surprised. Call of Duty players is well-known for being very sensitive to their emotions. However, their feelings can sometimes err on one side or the other. The MP5 nerf from Season 5 of Warzone. Or the cost of Black Ops II. The trailer of the multiplayer modes in the vanguard. The Radar perk is said to be able to block a standard feature from the game.
TikToker Lexlou930 is a skilled Warzone player. However, one salty player decided jump shots were not allowed in Warzone for reasons beyond human comprehension. Watch the incredible reaction of Lexlou930 and marvel at how she kept her cool.
This is technically called “reverse-boosting” in Vanguard. The skill-based matchmaking system tricks them into believing they are less skilled than they really are. It sorts them into lower-level groups, which allows them to slice through players who don’t know the game as well as they do.
Let’s say that this isn’t fair. It’s also a damning indictment on the multiplayer options available in the beta version of the game. Even Tom Henderson was found to be reverse-boosting fun. “Vanguard was, on the other hand, so unbearable that it’s almost hard to believe,” stated Reddit user Alaskancurry in comparing it with Black Ops Cold War. The maps are not competitive in any way, shape, or form. But they are vibrant and more interesting than any MW.” shared after-doughnut2137. Sledgehammer Games has stated that they are listening to the feedback and will rectify player visibility in an update this week.
