Sledgehammer Games’ co-founder Michael Condrey has taken to the companies official blog to address an ongoing and increasing problem that is affecting Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare community.
Michael Condrey has detailed that players who partake in what is known as ‘reverse boosting’ will soon be clobbered by the mighty metaphorical banhammer.
If you’re not quite sure what reverse boosting is, let me give you a semi-detailed explanation: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare uses a skill based matchmaking system which overall leads to fairer and more equal matches taking place but unfortunately, some players are abusing this system by intentionally killing themselves/feeding the enemy team, forcing their ‘skill rating’ to go down, ruining the experience for everyone.
In other words, if you play like an ass and ruin other players experience, just so you can play against people worse than you, a ban will most likely be heading your way very soon. Always great to see a company continue to support its game and remove toxic players from online play.
