I think he's on 11/12, not 14. He said in MW3 that he stopped playing on 10 and dropped to 7/8 consistently.

Well seeing as his whole logic of why its there is wrong... Its not about helping bad players. Its about allowing good player to be matched with good players. Bad players playing bad players won't help bad players at all cause they will only slowly move up the chain, till they hit players better then fall back down.

Though I agree 100% that skill based matching making is dumb, his reason is his own but is wrong.. Best way for someone to get better at a game is to play someone people that are better.

Also I don't the skill matching making system even works well in this game. I have gotten people that have just horrible stats often in my games.

It will help them do better, which is what he meant. It won't help them get better, but it will help them do better.

He's likely referring to Vahn's tweet in which he said "getting destroyed all the time isn't fun either" or something along those lines.

Its about allowing good player to be matched with good players.

That's why they put all that effort into and hyped up League Play, no?

Pretty damn hard to argue with this logic if you ask me.

League Play is for clan vrs clan more then anything, also it comes with everything unlocked.

SBMM is for small groups and soloers to have a FUN game for EVERYONE, not be OMG I JUST PWNED YOU cause your 10x the skill.
