Changes to Matchmaking Settings on 12/08/2016

Today the development team is making a few changes to Matchmaking settings with the goal of improving your experiences in the Crucible. Here is a quote straight from the team with some details about what is being changed. [quote] We’ve made a change to the Matchmaking system in an effort to increase match quality. Our specific goal is to reduce the number of matches that begin before they fill up with players. To achieve this, we are expanding the available skill-range for other players earlier and more aggressively. We will also be looking for lower-latency matches for longer than before. Essentially, this puts a stronger bias on connection quality, with less emphasis on skill matching. This may result in slightly longer matchmaking times in some cases. For some of you, this could mean that you’ll be matched with opponents well outside of your skill range. We hope the tradeoff is worth it to improve the Crucible ecosystem in general. As always, our work in designing a Crucible experience that serves all players is never finished. Be sure to let us know what you experience out there. Our forum, just like our game, is a constant source of great feedback. [/quote] These changes are now live in all playlists*. After you play some games with the new settings, feel free to post in this thread with any feedback you have. Let us know what you think. [i]*All playlists excluding Trials of Osiris, which matches teams based on card wins. [/i]

  • Please just make it Completely 100% Connection Based MatchMaking (CBMM). Everyone hates SBMM. Please take out SBMM entirely.

    • Please bring back SBMM. It's the only answer. CMM doesn't work

    • Still having terrible games in crucible, mostly the whole team is yellow with 2-3 red bars or im against a full redbar game lobby, its just not playable. Ive tried different game modes even given it a break to see if the connection was "weather" related but i just dont see the point in doing pvp. At worst it has caused clan mates to move on to other games or after two to three terrible lobbies friends just leave the group as they are done with trying to shoot taken like stuttering players. Please try and sort this out, destiny is a game i love and its getting to the point that there is no reason to play it.

      • Not sure how effective this change is. I'm still getting paired with red bar teams quite frequently. It's quite annoying when the top 3 players on the other team (sometimes the entire team) are teleporting around the map. Why is lag rewarded in this game?

      • I posted after this thread was created saying that everything seemed better in the crucible. I take that back. I used to do alright with my warlock. Now it feels like my tlaloc has ghost bullets all the time. I've noticed more people glitching around. Not a mind blowing amount but more than when this thread started. I don't have a netduma router, but when I get put in a match with people that have UK in their names. Did the player base shrink all of a sudden, are most people doing strikes? I don't know what happened. Maybe sbmm is back because I have been getting destroyed in the crucible. I'd play strikes if they had the chance of dropping legendary items at the end like crucible matches. But now I'm getting off topic.

        • I honestly noticed the difference when it was only on 1 or 2 playlists . but now that it is on all of them. I can't tell. I have checked every game since the change and I see a lot of 1 sided games were the other team clearly has better players, judging by their overall kds and stats. But when you were "testing it" it wasn't nearly like this. Ill continue to feel it out

          • Well, Whatever you did during the last Iron Banner seemed to help the experience all around get better for me. I had a great run in Banner with an Average of 1.75kd ish. However, for the last week Crucible and Trials seem worse than ever before. The top guy is red bar, 4 to 5 players are red bar on either team. My player mobility and speed seem to slow down during the match too, WEIRD. If it was bad before, but this is unplayable, I find myself leaving matches now because it's like a dang magic show, not a PVP match. Teleporting players, shots going through walls, 2 shot kills with 5 shot guns etc... I feel that you are making good connection players pay the price for all the people who have bad connections. I am certain that I am always catching host, which would be fine if all players had good connections. Its bad guys, fix this soon please.

          • Cozmo, why cant any of you Bungie employees grow a set of balls and say (yeah our shit is broken, we have no idea how to fix it. For now we're just gonna ignore the problem and pretend destiny isn't a broken piece of shit, everyone please standby for an update on when we can get a competent team in here to fix this trash. Were painting your red bars green as well, we have to save face with our investors! Please do not report this issue as we will ignore it and look at you like you're stupid. Carry on Guardians! Cosmo.....out) Now that's a post that should come from you or Deej.

            • Connections are terrible. I'd rather play games that have developers that care about their multiplayer.

              • Bungie doesn't read this post or care about it. Everyone should make their own posts like the SBMM ones. At least they got noticed.

                Pvp is not even playable for so many people at the moment! I was playing control and within the first minute the top guy on the other team already have 1500-2000pts lol! Good for him! But right after that everyone leave on my team! Because they just feel like they can't win or for whatever other reasons! I have been running into a lot of games like that! It just suck! No one is having fun right now! The match making just make no sense what so ever!

                • Can we get an apology for the arbitrarily handed out restrictions after iron banner and just call the ugly baby and ugly baby. The devs put a 20 year old networking system into one of the most expensive video game projects of all time and then punishes people for something they can't control because the team put the system in there.

                • Why am I playing full on teams of clans on every single match? This is horrible. I quit playing Destiny for a month and come back thinking things might be better but it's only gotten much much worse. Good bye Destiny ! Hello Witcher 3!

                  How can you justify matching players of different skill levels? So you want games where lower skills players just die time after time the whole match and end up with an extremely low kd. I'd rather have a red bar on my team and at least have a fighting chance. No the trade off isn't worth it!

                    Whatever you've done to matchmaking, there are now twice as many redbar cheaters than before. The difference is that now they are infecting regular crucible. Just for now ignore weapon balance and matchmaking and do something to rid the game of cheaters
