Over the last 24 hours, many users have been claiming (without any actual evidence) that Treyarch introduced Skill Based Matchmaking into Black Ops 3. Shortly thereafter, many users then claimed a following update reverted matchmaking back to usual.

However, today, Vonderhaar has tweeted stating that they did not just “introduce anything” and that “connection is king and continues to be so.”


Following this tweet, Vonderhaar has followed up with a few more stating that a tweak was implemented in the December 18th’s Hot Fix, but they did not understand its effects fully, and since reverted it back.


We’ll update if anything more changes regarding matchmaking…
