    The match making is absolutely horrible. Im not the best player on the game so why are they setting g me up in lobbies with master prestige with 3.00 k/d?

      Bo3 doesn’t have skill based matchmaking so that is going to happen

    God forbid they implement sbmm and people have to play against others of the same skill level. Where’s the fun in that?

    I always wish they would match make with players of the same skill level. Sucks when you play with Master prestige and get no kills, I am by far a good player, but enjoy the game, and old enjoy playing against people like me
