Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has shared his opinion regarding SBMM in a recent video posted on Twitter where he talked about SBMM for more than 2 minutes.

Call of Duty Cold War recently released its free Alpha. The free Alpha already had SBMM(Skill Based Match Making) enabled. The addition of SBMM in Call of Duty: Cold War Alpha ignited an old debate regarding it. Many pro players, Internet gaming personalities, and streamers spoke out against SBMM. Call of Duty also received a lot of criticism for refusing to remove SBMM from casual game modes. SBMM was even trending on Twitter yesterday.

Players who played the Call of Duty Cold War Alpha were not happy with the SBMM in the game. According to many players, only the first few games were enjoyable, after that the games apparently felt super competitive. The outrage from the players emerged on September 18 and everyone was criticizing how bad SBMM tuning is for COD.
