Will MW3 have SBMM

Let me tell you, folks, the buzz about Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) and the inclusion of skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) has been a hot topic among the gaming community. In case you're scratching your heads wondering 'what the heck is SBMM?', fear not! I got you covered! 

SBMM, in short, is a system that pairs you up with opponents who are roughly at your level of skill. Enjoyable, right? Well, not everyone thinks so... 

Some players, more experienced ones usually, feel that it can make the game "tougher" as they are always against players of similar ability.

So, Does MW3 have SBMM? 

Fact is, MW3 doesn't officially come with SBMM. You might be thinking, 'Wait, what?!' Yeah, it's a bit surprising, isn't it? But that's how it is. Now, this doesn't mean you'll always be paired with someone who totally outclasses you (or vice versa). The matchmaking system in MW3 does take into account certain factors such as player experience and type of game, but it doesn't follow the SBMM model.

Why doesn't MW3 implement SBMM? 

Well, the developers wanted to keep things a bit random, a touch unexpected, give every player a fighting chance and prevent lobbies full of pro-level players. Also, they sought to create a balance and maintain an atmosphere that's a mix of casual and competitive play, which can be a refreshing experience.

So, in a nutshell, if you're worried about facing a pro-grade opponent while you're still finding your feet in MW3- you can breathe easy. With the blend of randomness and experience-based matchmaking, every game is a new opportunity and a unique challenge.

Can SBMM improve the matchmaking process?

Let's deep dive into what's making the rounds in gaming circles, shall we? We're talking about SBMM, or Skill-Based Matchmaking. Now, you might be wondering: can SBMM actually make the matchmaking system better? 

The short answer is, yes! It certainly can. Here's why: 

  • Level playing field: SBMM pits you against players at the same skill level. This takes out the 'newbie vs pro' bouts, which nobody enjoys, right? You get to go head-to-head with players having similar skills, leading to more intense and balanced matches, keeping things exciting.
  • Get better, faster: Playing with folks around your skill level can help you to improve in the game. Remember the old saying, "Practice makes perfect?" Well, SBMM lets you get the practice you need without getting steamrolled by high-level players.
  • More Fair Matches: With SBMM, you won't be stuck in matches where your team is outmatched. We've all been in games where one team bulldozes the other. SBMM works to prevent that disparity by making matches more equal.

In conclusion, SBMM can indeed make for a well-balanced game, giving everyone a fair shot. Whether you're just starting out or a seasoned player, everyone benefits. However, it should also be carefully implemented, taking into account various factors. But hey, that's a topic for another conversation, right?

Will SBMM impact the player base of MW3?

Well, folks, SBMM, or Skill-Based Matchmaking for you newbies out there, could indeed cause tremors within the MW3 player base. Why, you ask? Let's me explain it to you in a language we both can understand with no geeky hard words. 

Imagine this - you're pretty good at the game, right? You've sweated it out, put in those long hours and fought countless battles to finally hone your skills. Now, with SBMM, you're looking at being matched with players who are just as skilled, if not more so, every single game. It sounds like a massively intense playing field, doesn't it? That's because it is. 

On one hand, for some players, this can be exactly what they're looking for - a challenge, a chance to pit their skills against equally skilled opponents. But for others, this could be a huge turn off. Not everyone is looking for a whirlwind of high-tension battles every time they decide to jump into a game. Sometimes, folks just want to have a relaxed gaming session, not a virtual equivalent of the Gladiator arena.

But hey, we can't forget the new players, the rookies. With SBMM, there's a chance they could be stuck in matches with players that are just way out of their league, which could discourage them from playing altogether. Well, they say that the best way to learn is to play against the best, but then again, nobody likes to lose all the time, right?
