  • I think SBMM needs to be in the game, but not as strict as it is, set a couple like 4 divisions, where you don’t know which you are but it’s based on the same stuff but it’s a lot less strict

  • My only issue with sbmm is yes it’s like evolving but backwards but how annoying pros are about throwing tantrums and making fun of others about it

  • People who are saying "ReMoVe SBMM" are just such a noob because if you are a good player, it doesn't matter who you're playing with

  • Sbmm is really bad even in MW you win 3 games and the game expects you to carry the team against the enemy team that is in a party game which makes it even difficult because half of your team wouldn't have communication but since treyarch owns bo2 they can use the same rank play on cold war and and lower the strength of sbmm on regular games because it's just not fun going against people with much better skill like I literally suck but when I randomly pop off I'll get the worst team ever that just stays in spawn my friend and I have to switch party leader to get better team's but if they don't lower cold war SBMM I'm just gonna stick with zombies I'm stressed enough already I'm 18 and I had 3 white hair and I can't have fun anyway because BO2 is just unplayable with modders and little kids just watching theater mode thry updated the game a few months ago and did nothing and didn't bother to fix people accounts that are frozen like mine zombies is just doing fine multiplayer is just no longer fun when it comes to a strong Sbmm I just want RBMM back😔🤷🏽‍♂️

  • as someone with a lower skill level... I like the idea of skill brackets, where I'm not constantly getting spawn killed by spawn campers, or score streaks, or constantly getting melted by extreme sweats.. I don't like the idea of skill based match making, but I do like the idea of skill brackets, where I at least have a chance to get 1 or 2 kills on the best players in the lobby, and not 0 chance at all.. or constantly getting out played, or melted.. It's seriously not enjoyable when its 90% of the games. I also do have some disabilities and learning issues that impact my ability to play and adapt and become better. not physical disabilities, but mental and learning. so for me, I would prefer skill brackets, where Its not constant score streak and insane sweats to the point you can't even compete.

  • I think anyone against sbmm needs to look at the other side of the coin, everyone talks about k/d. "Oh I had a 3.0 for every cod" "oh I had a 4.0 consistently every year until now" So what has changed? Well, they added SBMM, and what does that mean? You started playing against people your own skill level, instead of playing against people who are as competent as you are for your entire cod career youve been playing against the bottom say 30%. So now turn that full circle, the reason you hate sbmm is because your ego can't handle it. You WANT to play against bad players, the only satisfaction you've ever gotten from COD is that insanely high K/D that somehow give your gaming career any meaning. "I don't want to play against bad players, I just want to not play against people my skill level" meaning you actually DO want to play against bad players.

  • Treyarch common we know your the better studio heck I even enjoyed Bo4 and I still play it cause I only get sweat in Mw, and there is way less people that are new and if they want to get better they'll want to try to be better and look up tips and tricks and that overall is better you can't blindside them you have to push them to be better. That's the only way their gonna learn and help them improve we hope you listen to our request to nerfing SBMM. #RemoveSBMM

  • Wait a minute, your were doing good, So the game put you with a bunch of other players that are just as good as you, Then you cant get as many kills cuase you know, youre placed in a lobby where you actually have to try hard to get the kill and you complain that the game is no longer fun......... Id rather not be placed in a lobby with someone that has a 5.0 kill streak while im over here with like you said, an average player with .88 kd. Sounds like SBMM is doing things right

  • SBMM ruins every game it should be removed and thrown into the hottest depths of hell. The problem that i've run into is that you get punished for being good for a round. If you pop off then you get put with other people who play like that all the time.

  • I’m really confused, are people upset because they can’t pick on people that aren’t good at the game? If you’re easily getting a chopper gunner I don’t think the game is challenging you so on one hand I see all these people talking shit about bad players being safe playing other bad players yet these really good players keep crying about being unable to takeover games with multiple score streaks lmao. I think the ranked playlist is a happy medium and I agree with ink.

  • Ok so it have implemented that cancer? Good to know ill avoid this game and any further cod with that system kranked up to maximum. They simply make some sort of players stop buying cod series . I have bought all cod i have spent milions of hours i have pass tuff times to get skill to become above avg in this games and activision simpy showed the middle finger to that kind of players wich are basicaly veterans in supporting call of duty serie . They have trade us for money so i appeal dont be fool do not buy this game . Its jumping from being one of the best fps games right to one of the worst fps serie i have ever played at the same time with massive massive potential to be great. And i think presence of sbmm in this form should be pointed in requirements as in my opinion is a huge gamechanger and deal breaker and i would like to be aware of it . Before i buy

  • I am not a noob but I'm not a professional gamer either. I'm just a pretty decent player. My opinion on sbmm is exactly the same as yours. But for the same reason you dont want to play with ppl of your skill level is exactly why somebody of my skill level wouldnt want to be in a lobby with ppl with skills like you. It would be no fun! Getting killed every 5 seconds by pro players is no fun for a mediocre player as it is for a pro. At least if I play with someone of my same skill I have a chance. To me it seems kinda weak for a professional gamer to say they dont wanna play against other ppl with similar skill bc nobody can shine. Shine on players like you dont prey on the weaker players trying to get better but they cant bc they're in lobbies with experienced gamers. And like I said I'm pretty good but I've always felt this way. Why be a professional gamer and not want to play against other professional gamers. But I do think it should be balanced. Match making should be based on connection not skill. Be the best beat the best. Just my opinion love your channel.

  • Like you said in the video, being paired with people who are all as good as you at your best isn’t fun. It leads to tedious matches that drag on due to everyone camping. I’ve given up playing core mp now as it’s so boring, used to play for hours now I’m fed up after a few games. They need a serious ranked mode with rewards and unique unlocks for people to play their best for. Before SBMM you’d get hammered as a noob, but you’d quickly learn from your mistakes. How can you learn anything from players who are only as good as you?

  • I think COD needs top tier rewards for rank games. If you want a exclusive gun skin you have to grind in rank (SBMM) games. This would interest high/mid level players to want to play/grind in that pool and frequent less in normal pubs. Low level players would need to “qualify” to enter these rank games with the better rewards. Therefore need to learn how to get better at the game. On the other side those brand new to the game need an exclusive play list too. This game mode is defaulted out... the game will give you a default load out with no customization whatsoever. Default streaks would be a UAV and another mid to low level streak and that’s it. You can stay in this game mode until you graduate based on your avg skill level. If you let someone play on your account and they are good enough to graduate you out then oh well, there is no returning. A free gold skin can be applied to whatever gun they like if they graduate. I’m sure high/mid level players won’t mind since they know how to grind to earn those skins anyways. Finally pubs goes back to being pubs... you can be playing MarkOfJ one match then someone with no thumbs the next. It goes back to being a mixed bag. Also put other incentives in the game “king of the lobby” - extra xp for win streaks in a lobby and xp for ending someone’s streak. “Bounties” low level that get kills on high level get xp bonus. Joining a match in progress and you team is losing, extra xp to stay in the fight and big bonus xp for a comeback win.

  • SBMM in an alpha game is legit a fraud, they're trying to sell the game by letting prople believe they can have fun because they're good. And this is a fraud exactly because they said SBMM can be tweaked. They're trying to sell something that won't be the final product with the "live service" excuse. I can't bother a whole year of SBMM tweaks with different experiences every week, and i guess that's not how you should sell your game
