Chen we met Halo Infinite exit In the context of E3, we were not only excited to learn that we would finally have a new franchise title, but also the promise of multiplayer with a unique and timeless Battle Pass, and with many improvements and adaptations for our own Spartan. But how to matchmaking in the game? According to 343 Industries: as in Fortnite.
Many do not like this news, but why? Let’s go by parts. The “matchmaking” is the function by which a game finds your opponents: of all the players currently looking for a game, the game servers choose enough to fill the arena, but how do you choose them?
Fortnite, Call of Duty and Apex Legends form the games based on a system known as SBMM (Skill-Based MatchMaking), which is based on the skills of the players. That is, in simple terms, that the game matches you with players who are in your skill range: neither better nor worse.
Why the SBMM is so controversial when, in fact, it sounds so fair? Precisely for this reason: As you get better at the game, the game only lets you play with others who are getting better., which means a greater chance of losing. It sounds cruel, but if you think about it, it’s completely logical: when you lose a game, not only you lose, 99 other players lost (thinking of Fortnite, for example).
Mathematically it is more difficult to achieve a victory this way, but it allows you a gaming experience at your level. Do you remember when you started playing? Imagine that you had entered the game for the first time and you would have faced others who have the level that you have now. How long would you have lasted?
Furthermore, Would you have continued playing if your survival rate in each game was 8 seconds? It is precisely the SBMM that allows us to feel that the game is a constant challenge, but a challenge at our level. So the next time you are eliminated from the game, think that you eliminated someone who is only slightly better than you.
To be honest, it seems that What bothers those who are looking forward to the game about the SBMM in Halo Infinite is that it invites a lot of new players to multiplayer... as if Infinite should be exclusive only to those who have already played all previous Halo. Then: good news to new players! Halo Infinite be nice enough to you.
