Titanfall's matchmaking has its problems, but Respawn's working on it

For many of us that have already sunk hours upon hours of play into Titanfall, one of the game's most obvious issues has been its unbalanced matchmaking.

Players are often teamed up with low-ranked players comparative to the other team, where a party of highly-ranked players can easily out-rank the opposition.

The game doesn't re-balance squads to keep things even, meaning you could enter a match with new players while the other team is stacked with refined weaponry and powerful titans.

Developer Respawn knows about this issue, and is looking to address it.

The main problem I see with it is that it refuses to mix the teams up. For instance today me and some pugs ran train on a team... often winning by a 90% margin, but the game would not swap players around to balance things out. This continued for 4 games in a row until eventually the enemy team quit.

God I hate when that happens. Needs to balance out after each game.

At least respawn is working to first unlike EA's other company hmmm Battlefield 4 cough*

Not at least. Respawn working on fixing the problems so that future buyers who are more fickle, will enjoy a seamless experience. Titanfall really is a fun game and gives you a sense of freedom when roaming the maps and scailling walls.

Respawn being pro-active shows their commitment to the game and it's existing community of players.

Blame ea for wanting bf4 out before cod not dice...

And bf4 is twice the game titanfall is from a technical stand point!

So basically the guys who where expected to reinvent the wheel have run into the same exact problem everyone before them has, and like everyone before them, they've promised to fix it. With the added caveat that they're pretty much performing like any other studio that's worked with EA.

The obvious problem is parties.. On any given night, we have 5-6 guys playing and we naturally want to play together..

Which means our team stays intact no matter what the other team does

I don't understand why games are released without party systems. Theyve been around long enough and they are important.
That and the fact the teams don't mix are the only things Ive noticed that Id change so far!

Titanfall has a party system...

My bad! I'm an idiot sometimes lol.

Every round is freaking fun on PC. They need to fix things like screen tearing for example. It's simple but feels so epic the game.
