I ran into so many lopsided mismatches back in the day on Battlefield 1943 where you'd have some "air ace" who never left their warplanes for the whole match. They would rack up double digit kill streaks with ease, causing many players to leave the game.

It's about time a company instituted something like this.

people still play MW2... isn't that game from the great recession?

this isn't new. plenty of games have matchmaking based on mmr/elo/ranking.

Even worse is that the rest of the game is a massive download as only 72Mb's of the game is on the disc.

Skill based match making is kinda a double edged sword and always has been. That was what typically ranked modes were for. As much as I have loved a good old pub stomp, it ruins pubs for the casual and newer players. But also it isn't fun for the better players when every game they play is like a tournament.

Yeah, the first time MW2 came out is around when I tapped out of online multiplayer, I'd played the prior entry quite a bit.

As for MW2, I dabbled for a month or so, ranked up to level 55 playing mostly TDM and occasionally some of the other modes, but it didn't hold my interest beyond that. Was hoping to see some of the older maps but no such luck.

I'll probably finish the campaign and then move on to something else like Ragnarok or maybe that new Sonic game.
