Good News For Black Ops 2 Matchmaking
Improved matchmaking? Let’s hope so
Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar took to Twitter to answer some of the Call of Duty fanbase’s questions, and has revealed some interesting news regarding the basis for matchmaking in the upcoming title.
Fans had been wondering for some time whether Black Ops 2′s multiplayer matchmaking would stick with the currently used region based system, but in a quote from Vonderhaar’s own twitter account, he stated; “Not region based anymore. Latency/ping exclusive.”
This could potentially improve a system, that despite it’s successes so far, has proved to be troublesome at times. Using this system should improve game connection, speeds and reduce the amount of unwanted drop-outs, though you can never put a system in place to stop rage-quitters. On top of that, the loss of a host could be better handled, meaning less time spent staring at a lobby; there;s only so many ways you can perfect your loadout.
Black Ops 2 is due for release on November 13th worldwide
