Valve to introduce matchmaking

Sierra Oscar writes, "In a recent interview with, Robin Walker from Valve revealed plans to introduce matchmaking functionality into Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2 & Left 4 Dead. Matchmaking is currently being implemented into Left 4 Dead which is most likely going to be the first game to receive matchmaking capabilities when it is released later this year.

Matchmaking is being offered as a game service for those developling under Steam Works, so expect to see the system introduced down the line to many of the Third Party games being developed with steam in mind."

I never use or liked matchmaking. I just jion random servers with good ping and if its decent server with good popularity I come bck to it and thats the way I like it.

I agree.

I don't like being set up with "people of the same skill level" all the time. A challenge is nice to have. It's the only way you'll get better in online FPSs...when you get your ass handed to you by someone 20 times as's like being tempered by only get stronger!

I like random, high-population, low-ping servers.

For the first time in over a year, I'll be back on Steam on Tuesday!!
