Respawn Entertainment has issued notice that an update is rolling out across the servers that will change how you are matched with Teams in Titanfall. The game is said to have a skill system behind the scenes which is not shown to players, data within this is used to match players to one another. Posting the information via their official blog, the following was sure to be an improvement to matchmaking.
1. Searching for teammates and opponents will now sometimes take more time to look for players that are a good skill level match, rather than purely prioritizing speed over quality. This will give us more time to build better teams and create closer games that are worth staying in for a longer period of time.
2. Rather than playing against the same opponents over and over, the game will periodically split the teams apart and search for new opponents for each team. This means if one team is dominating, we will update the skill for all of the players and then find each team a better suited match for the next round. Did you lose to a really great team? We’ll make them disappear and replace them with a new opposing team – and they will have no idea that you just got your butts kicked. This should end some of the frustration with playing for extended periods when you’re having an off night.
Changes are available immediately in a new “Improved Matchmaking (Beta)” playlist that you can try right now under “Play Classic MP”. This may expand into the other playlists after they watch the behavior and tweak things until they’re happy with it.
