Well, that's the thing. The first 5-ish games I played were like that...it was great. Then it just started getting harder and harder until it's borderline unplayable now. It's like it's not SBMM for me, but if my KD ratio is 1, then I'm in a lobby with the minimum being 1, not the average.
Ya idk if the SBMM is that bad. I think if you actually looked up your lobby KDs you'd realize that with a 1 KD you definitely aren't going to be in lobbies where 1 is the minimum. Even when it was at the peak sweatiest with the top movement style available on the original Warzone Rebirth Island if you have a low KD you would still be in lower lobbies a lot. My buddies regularly got much easier lobbies when you tracked it and even the higher lobbies aren't just automatically everyone above a certain KD.

There is definitely a SBMM, but even when I was grinding it out I never really minded (now the cheating on some seasons of Verdansk were completely different). Just have to adapt play style to how the lobby is. I guess I just never minded, just knew to have to keep adjusting play style and make sure to prioritize having the right loadout.

I'm by no means amazing, but I definitely appreciate some of the movement mechanics returning in the most recent update. They were probably a little too much in Warzone 1 (I do like some emphasis on positioning), but Warzone 2 was too slow and clunky. We'll see if the most recent update leaves it in a better balance between movement and positioning.

I don't want that to all sound rude though! I hope it wasn't taken that way, they could probably tone it down a little, just think trying to keep a positive mindset can help, games should be fun. :)

Lol games should be fun. To the previous point, I don't know if it's SBMM but I can't explain it any other way. Played a couple hours this morning and again, got absolutely destroyed, whereas day 1, I had 5-11 kills every match and top 5 in every game. Average kind of player, but something changed it. The last couple matches today I played, it seemed like everyone was moving like old Verdansk: breaking-camera slide-canceling aim-assist-cranking nightmare. Glad I didn't buy mw3!

After a few more days and idk people are kind of cracked returning to Vondel and Ashika (probably since people are more familiar with them).

I think the bigger issue is that people already found the broken guns quite quickly and the level of brokenness is pretty bad.

It doesn't feel too different though, I've had some pretty rough server issues on some matches, but my performance has been about the same as I've gotten back into the groove.

It seems to have balanced out the past couple days. I can't explain it, but a big difference vs. last week's cheater nightmare.

So Fntastic just went up in smoke and The Day Before is now delisted on Steam. What a crazy story this is.

But it got me to download The Division 2 over the weekend. I played the first Division game to death, but when 2 came out I was burnt out on it. I played an open weekend of it but nothing more. I played a bit over the weekend and enjoyed it. Again im just doing the story, not running into every open door i see. But I enjoy the shooting and the mecanics of it.

Alan Wake 2 NG+ dropped this week so as soon as I have some gaming time I will be diving back into that.

I never played the division games, always wanted to but it was during times I didn’t play much.

The new Avatar game uses the same engine and looks amazing. Probably nothing amazing gameplay wise, but I’m hoping it hits gamepass next year so I can play without buying. 😂

Finished God of War Valhalla DLC. Was surprised how story heavy it was. I enjoy roguelites so it was pretty fun kind of mix up.

Not sure what I’ll play next might just bide my time for TLOU 2 remaster (haven’t ever played part 2).

Assassins Creed Valhalla was good too if you like viking lore.

God of War was on like a whole other level, but Eivor was pretty cool and I did enjoy playing that when it came out.

Not similar gameplay wise, but Hellblade was sweet and can’t wait for the sequel.

Never got around to either division. Contemplated the second one a few times though.

Finishing up TLOU2 right now then there’s quite a few games releases I have my eyes on for soon.

Division 2 is great for a play through, early 2020 shutdown I was running a still making "hand sanitizer" and basically bingeing the game lol. The campaigns can be beaten fairly quickly, but there's a lot of other content that has some decent replayability.

I played Division 1 to death back in when that came out. So when Division 2 came out I was totally burnt out on it. But now, 5 years later im good to go. Its just a great game to play and just wonder around Washington and New York and explore. You dont even have to have a goal. There are always random events and other stuff that pops up.

But ive been running a bunch of multiplayer missions. Just join up with 7 others and wreck ****.

Yeah, it's probably an entirely different game playing with others. I love the game play, it just got a little redundant playing alone.

I'll keep it in my back pocket in case I get the right itch.

My problem is I hate playing with others nowadays. :LOL:
