A lot of Call Of Duty streamers are saying that skill-based matchmaking has been ruining their Warzone experience. Some of the issues are being grouped in with cheaters, sweaty matches, and unfair rounds. Players have also been thrown into bot lobbies with extremely low skilled players which isn’t fun for anyone.

We also dive into what one expert, Josh Menke, who has worked on matchmaking in Halo and Call Of Duty, has said about fairness and player perception. We also get into how large skill gaps can drive players away from a game and the importance of good matchmaking.
