EA, how does the matchmaking work in regular H2H ? I am being matched with top players and I've played 5 games this year. Being matched with people that have 4,000 more points then me...and I am matched immediately, its not like I wait for a while...so its not because it is trying to search for a while and that is all it could find. Please explain. Would be nice to play people who weren't sweating all over their living rooms and use the same 3 plays over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.
If you were to assign it by rank you would experience the same thing, however it could also be abused.
If you were assigned by rank, you could play X amount of games in a row and then wait until you drop down in the leaderboard to play others of lower rank, giving you an advantage to climb back up. By setting it by skill level, it doesn't matter where someone stands on the leaderboard because you're playing some of an equal skill level. That is truly even and the only difference at that point is which teams you both select. If you're capable of climbing to the top ranks, then in theory you should be able to win against the users ranked lower than you.
Are you talking about MUT?
For MUT it's skilled based to determine matchmaking, but I've seen suggestions from others within here on adding a floor and ceiling range for MUT OVR range. My concern with that is that a player could swap their high OVR team to a lower OVR team (ex: go from 90 OVR to 75 OVR) to make the matchup easier. Most likely, the person with a 75 OVR team is either just starting off this year in Madden learning the new mechanics and gameplay, or new to Madden. This gives the person swapping their OVR an unfair advantage.
I suppose to counter that concern you could lock in your team for seasons like Salary Cap.

Appreciate the feedback on the matchmaking system. I think you meant PS4 since Madden 21 was released on that generation? Unless you're referring to Madden NFL 20.
> OK...that is really bad.... Why cant I just play people that are near my rank...ya know like any other normal online game? This is so weird....it never used to be like this. Sorry to say but this has cost you my business and several of my friends. There is just no fun in this anymore. You win EA, I give up.
Seriously though, exactly how I feel. Like I get that I need to get better to well, get better, but it's 100% of head to head games are like I'm a team of 4th graders playing against a dream team.
