Dr Disrespect thinks Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer is destined to be abandoned by its players due to SBMM.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s open beta has garnered unmatched hype in the community. Players are happy to get their hands on the sample of the most awaited game of 2022. Furthermore, the open beta has gained mass appreciation, except a few issues have raised massive concerns.

One of the most concerning issues is the SBMM, better known as Skill Based Matchmaking in-game. The unforgiving SBMM has been a thorn for most players, as it punishes players who are doing good in terms of stats. Dr Disrespect has also pointed out the SBMM issues and how it will make players turn their back on the game after launch.

Doc Claims SBMM will set MW2 up for Failure

The open beta of MW2 has brought prominent streamers and content creators under the same umbrella as they all test out the anticipated game. Dr Disrespect has also joined the game’s beta testing alongside Swagg and TimTheTatman.

However, their experience with the game hasn’t been dreamlike. Like all other content creators and players of the game, the Two Timer has been visibly annoyed by the game’s unforgiving SBMM.

In his recent stream, the Doc was gunned by an enemy almost twice in the blink of an eye. He was quick to point out how the SBMM targets good players and puts them in an unforgiving lobby, making the player experience worse.

He further pointed out how this SBMM will take out the game’s 90% population after its launch. Furthermore, he reiterated, “I think people are kind of over multiplayer games, number one unless they get rid of SBMM. But, if they don’t get rid of it, it’s three weeks tops.”

Surprisingly, most players agree with Doc’s take on SBMM in MW2. However, it is just speculation at this point. Infinity Ward might dial down the SBMM with the launch to retain its growing player base. Furthermore, with Warzone 2 and DMZ coming out on November 16, the player base will be left with three choices to deal with if SBMM takes its toll on them.
