During the brief period that a stat mod would work in game, a la XVM,  it showed that their was skilled based MM. 

Usually, 100 games or so sample, the skill all went to one team.

 

You can replicate that by seeing end game results today....

You two do realize that a skill based MM would drive your W/R towards 50% while at the same time the poor players would in turn have their W/R driven towards 50%. The only way it might work was if the skill was only factored after the MM had selected the players for the match and swapped players back and forth to balance the teams.

Bye Felicia! Please, let the door hit you on the way out.

 

Also, we really don't have the player population to support skill based mm.

Hmmm...NO. SBMM is a facadé. A lie. Something people keep praying will "fix" the game, but won't do a goddamn thing. Just get over it.

​have you ever played a competitive game? obviously you use some kind of tier system.

Why would you quit? Playing against players of equal skill to you - that bores you or something?

And here, it won't really make much of a difference. W/R in this game is on a bell curve my friend. People like you and me, we're on the fringe, just like the extremely bad. Most people sit in the game 47-51% range. You yourself, you're in the top 5th percentile.

 

SBMM will have the inverse effect for you than you think will happen.

This. Over time, it'll draw all players above a 50% winrate down to a 50% winrate(since you will never win ever battle) and it'll draw all players below 50% winrate up to a 50% with time.

 

Not to mention we don't have the server population to support it. You'd have very long wait times for games, and anyone on either extreme of the scale for winrate would have an extremely long wait time for games. You want your "even matched" games OP? Well how about wait an extremely long time for a match.

Little Groot would never quit over MM.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Little Groot wants fair teams. He's not the only one. I honestly don't care how they do it.

​Note the AND in my post. I am saying the opposite of the op.

​No, I was just illustrating the silliness of ultimatums. Also as others have mentioned and as we have exhausted over and over again in WOWS and WOT skill based MM only works the way you want it to for a short time then all of us are back in a narrow band playing together again. The experience you are looking for is available in Ranked battles. As far as boring I think having the mix of players adds variety, so current mm is less boring not more.

I'd like to see CV players balanced out in the MM... disparity in skills seems most apparent within that class during games.

I guess you might as well quit since the WG dev Sub_Obtavian has said that they won't use a skill based MM because it would drive everyone to the exact same win rate of 50%.
