I have a question that may have been asked before, or maybe the answer's obvious, but I don't know it. Anyway, I'm wondering about Call of Duty Multiplayer matchmaking. I enjoy playing those games, such as Black Ops online, however, I'll be the first to admit I'm not very good. My question is, is there no server side method for matchmaking? Meaning, why do I have to get thrown into matches with a bunch of people who have been playing way longer and are way better? Thus I die every 10 seconds. I know the game keeps track of your stats, and it seems to me like they should be able to use some of those stats to more evenly match you up. Maybe they're already doing this, but if so it doesn't seem to work very well. Out of the roughly 500k players who are usually online I'm sure there wouldn't be a shortage of people closer to my skill level. Even just matching based on kill/death ratio would seem to even things out a bit. And honestly, I'm not trying to sound like I'm complaining, I know you could tell me I just need to get better, but I'm just trying to say, I do enjoy the game but I just wish I felt like the playing field was a little more level. In short, this isn't a rant, I'm just wondering if they even attempt any sort of matchmaking other than possibly location/connection. Thanks.
