The StarCraft II beta Battle.net matchmaking settings have been turned away from skill level matching to quick matching, StarCraft: IncGamers.
Blizzard announced to fans that “the Find Match functionality is currently configured to find games more quickly, rather than find evenly matched games.” The idea is likely to get more games going to let the developer get a better statistical overview of unit balance. However, “while this gets you playing faster, the chances are greatly increased that you will play against opponents that are well above or below your skill level,” the statement said.
This will not be a permanent change, as the continuedwill make more players of similar skill available, Blizzard will “adjust the matchmaking accuracy versus matchmaking speed,” and fans will see “the odds [of] finding an even match improve dramatically.”
Byin the first half of this year, any similar problems should have been sorted out.
