About the failed "Skill Based Matchmaking"

Hi all, I just wanted to quickly ask if there is anything in BHVRs pipeline regarding a new matchmaking?

As I've noticed, BHVR reverted the matchmaking as the skill based matchmaking was a complete disaster.

...but for me the waiting times with the current matchmaking are ridiculous and simply unacceptable. The game is popular and the playerbase is stable so I guess the main reason is the matchmaking?

I can't be the only one that thinks the waiting times are extreme, especially as red rank Survivor or lower ranked Killer?

    They honestly just need to fix the ranking and matchmaking system.

    As it stands the current ranking system funnels everyone into red ranks. When red ranks should really only have the top players in it. In that same vein, ranking up should definitely be much harder than it actually is.

    Instead of actually fixing the ranking system, they're essentially going to do away with it entirely with MMR.

    Damn right, the ranking system is nothing but an indicator for the total playtime during a season.

    What always confused me is that the supposed "Skill Based Matchmaking" had no relation to the actual Ranking System - how does that make any sense? Not to mention that the Emblem System is contraproductive when we're talking about rewarding skillful plays. Geting a 4k in 2 minutes ends in a depip or safety pip at best. The same goes for Survivors that demolish a Killer and escape after only one person had been hooked.

    Another issue; Survivors are only skins, all of them work the same way so it makes sense to give them the same ranking. Killers however are completly different and someone with 2000 hours on Nurse might belong to Rank 1 when playing her - but certainly not when for example playing Huntress for the first time. This does not promote playing a different Killers once you reached high rank.

    So I guess that means there are no plans for a new ranking / matchmaking system? A damn shame, I got plenty of good ideas!
