As of today, we’ve increased the priority of low pings to our servers in the matchmaking process. This step should help you match with local players, and therefore have a better connection, more often. As you get more of these local matches, instances of playing on further data centers will also decline.

 

Separate from the bullet point above, our Services team has taken additional steps to help ensure you can have quality matches with players from your respective regions, more often. We expect this to have a noticeable impact when making matches for players in less populated regions around the world including - but not limited to - Australia and Asia. This update, which went live yesterday, has already shown promising results and should take further advantage of this morning’s changes. Please keep an eye out and let us know how your games start to feel.

 

This morning's update should also prevent players from “geofiltering” their online matches. Since this was impacting matches after they were put together via our matchmaker, it was causing unstable connections for the other players in the lobby. To learn more about this and why it’s being prevented, please read this post on Waypoint

PS - You can no longer block servers other than the ones which are across the world. We can only block US servers etc. Geofiltering Change

 

 

Was having trouble getting matches yesterday or was getting matched to a lot higher skilled players. May have been due to this?

Not necessarily the latter but for the former, sure. This update is supposed to benefit regions with low population like Asia and Australia. Matchmaking times will be on the higher side but the emphasis is to find similarly skilled people in your region (lower ping).

There's something definitely going on with the matchmaking since the last update. As a Silver 4 player I'm getting dropped into matches fully stacked with Platinum & even diamond players in ranked now.

 

Same. I think this will continue till the ranks reset which should be soon. One important thing to note is that ranks don't truely show how good/bad the player is. The true rank is hidden.

Ah. I'll stick to unranked / BTB only then for now.

You should actually focus on BR accuracy, strafe and movement skills and map and other players awareness and keeping a cool head always, in ranked. Forgot gaining ranks at this stage, just practice ranked 

 

once you develop requisite skills, you’ll move up automatically and it will be a pleasure 

 

for example, I am practising on solo/duo. When I have Onyx level skills, I’ll play my Diamond crossplay ranked and advance the ranking further
