Destiny 2 Update Aims to Fix Competitive Playlist Matchmaking

Share this:

Bungie has noticed that Destiny 2 matchmaking in the Competitive playlist is failing to match similarly skilled players. Instead of equally capable opponents facing off in an intense battle, some players are finding that they get completely outmatched. 

Below average players getting paired with above average players is apparently a bug, and Bungie is working to fix that as soon as possible. 

Here’s what you need to know about the change:

According to the finer minds on our team, the Competitive playlist needs some love. Too many players are getting stomped by opponents who grossly outmatch them. In order to match you properly with an opponent in your league, we need to apply your skill rating. There is a bug we need to fix to ensure that this is done properly. We are applying that fix right now.
In summary:
• If you’ve been having fun in Quickplay, nothing has changed. Game on.
• If you’ve been getting your ass kicked in Competitive, you’ll have more of a fighting chance.
• If you’ve been kicking ass in Competitive, we’re sending some worthier opponents your way.

Bungie also notes that the Crucible “exists in a constant state of evolution” and that it “adapts to the way [players] play.” They then give the reassurance that, “this won’t be the last update [Bungie applies] to the state of combat.”

Are you happy with the changes to Crucible?
