As Call of Duty: Warzone players continue to struggle with skill-based matches (SBMM), some have found unfair circumvention to easily ensure a bot lobby.
From Infinity Ward to Treyarch and Raven Software, Activision developers have joined Call of Duty: Warzone has remained completely silent about its approach to SBMM. Instead, millions of players in the game had to come up with their own theories about matchmaking algorithms.
Warzone debuted in March 2020 and players spent months arguing over the merits of SBMM and its implementation. Some believe that it is necessary to protect newer or more casual players, others believe that this unfairly punishes players for good games. Most lie somewhere in between, just hoping for some transparency and balance in the matchmaking system.
Recently, fans have found their own way to achieve some level of transparency with the help of SBMM Warzone website ̵
Although we will not specify the details of this method, it is relatively simple and easy to download, although it requires multiple accounts and multiple game settings. Although it is not clear how widespread the problem is, it is clear that many players have taken advantage of it.
“I was discussing this. I discussed leaving him alone until he was well. But I feel that if I’m going to use this because I’m doing it and I’m going to give up responsibility every time I do, I want you to be able to use it. I really struggled with that thought. “In the end, although Rara wasn’t sure if he should publish the video explaining the method, he decided it was worth sharing so Activision could handle it and keep the streamers accountable.
One such streamer is YouTube’s Hydro, which Rara ruthlessly exposes and criticizes for abusing this method to provide easier lobbies. Not surprisingly, the relatively new content creator was not thrilled with the reaction.
It’s funny how people will “expose” me for backlinking for CONTENT while you have delayed Warzone tournaments because of professionals using geo filters and VPNs.
There is a big difference between a $ 100,000 prize pool and a person who makes class-setting videos. Why am I so special? 🤣

In response to the call, Hydro continued to point out the difference between its abuse of the game’s “content” system and the fraud that took place in Warzone’s outright tournaments.
While developers have not yet turned to SBMM, fans continue to find ways to learn how it can be manipulated. With accusations flying left and right, whether for content or for tournaments, the game community dives deeper into the discourse of matchmaking.
In addition, it should be noted that we do not recommend players to use this method of back amplification. Developers have punished accounts for abusing such methods in the past, and users could find their accounts at risk if they played the system.
