Call of Duty: Warzone players still face problematic SBMM issues

A recent Reddit post on r/CODWarzone talks about the recurring issue that casual players of the game face all the time. The post included the harrowing experience of a player and his squad who have a K/D ratio of less than 1. These players checked their Warzone lobby stats only to notice that they play in tough lobbies. These lobbies included winners who have a K/D ratio of around 5-6 with the top 15 having players with over 2 K/D ratio.

This showcases the main issue that players have to face with SBMM in Call of Duty: Warzone. The broken system propels players with low K/D ratio to fight against the best in the business, which ruins their experience. This causes the casual players in the community to feel overpowered, which lead to their exit from Verdansk probably forever.
