Here it is.

http://www.gamezone.com/news/update-activision-may-use-unfair-matchmaking-to-trick-you-into-buying-microtransactions-3460345

"For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases," according to the patent. "For instance, the microtransaction engine may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player."

So much for skill based match making then. The marquee player will have scrubs on his team or be against them? What?

that sounds terrible. so in battlefront 2 by EA.

they could potentially force matchmaking where i play with ppl that get stronger weapons every time. and everyone on my team has not used loot boxes to get stronger weapons.

If I noticed I was getting wrecked and the game was "encouraging" me to buy stuff to get better, my brain would go "ah this game is s***" and stop playing, instead of buying stuff...

but people out there must be buying microtransactions like crazy because these companies are clearly making boat loads of money from it.

Now every Activision game I play I'll have this in mind...
