Apex Legends is finally addressing its skill-based matchmaking issues


Maybe soon you can play with friends and have fun.

Earlier this year, Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment shared insights into a project the team was working on that revolved around matchmaking. Central to the long list of Apex Legends complaints was the game’s unforgiving skill-based matchmaking, and the team seems to have taken that feedback seriously with changes coming to Apex Legends soon.

In a thick blog post, Technical Director Samy Duc defines the current state of Apex Legend’s matchmaking system. duc says:

“Apex Legends currently matches with the skill rating of the top player in your premade group, and our system takes the size of your premade roster into account when matching you with opponents.”

Due to the nature of the current system and the strain it has placed on its player base, Respawn is in the process of retiring the current system in favor of a system that aims to balance teams fairly. The method the team is using has been a work in progress for some time and has been implemented across different regions in casual and ranked modes.

Interesting reading, one of the many highlights, involves the current matchmaking, which focuses on putting players into four “discrete” skill buckets. This method is being abandoned for a much more bucket approach as the team tries to balance matchmaking evenly, with a lot of fine tuning going forward as respawn will occur, although this may come at the cost of longer queues.

Longer queues aside, fan feedback has been very positive as Apex Legends may be changing for the better.
