Overwatch 2 Devs Provide Insight into Matchmaking System
- Dec 21, 2022
The Overwatch 2 team has provided an update on the future of the game’s matchmaking system, promising a much more structured system amid issues with unbalanced matches and games. The new internal matchmaking system promises to provide players with more balanced and enjoyable online experiences.
In an effort to provide a more balanced online experience, Overwatch 2 will be introducing a new internal matchmaking system that uses a hidden MMR rating to match players with those of similar skill levels. This hidden MMR rating will be based on a player's performance in previous games, as well as their win-loss record. The new system will also take into account other factors, such as the number of players in a game and the size of the map being played.
The team is also introducing a new system of "matchmaking queues," which will allow players to choose the type of game they want to play. These queues will be divided into different categories, such as Quick Play, Competitive, and Ranked, and will be tailored to each player's skill level. This will ensure that players are not matched with opponents that are too far outside of their skill level, leading to more balanced and enjoyable matches.
The Overwatch 2 team is committed to providing a better matchmaking experience for players, and these new updates are a step in the right direction. With the new internal matchmaking system, players will be able to find more balanced matches and have a more enjoyable online experience.
