A major problem plaguing online match making systems in games is to balance out the skill levels between both teams. Treyarch is looking to maintain this to allow players of considerable lower skill to play amongst others with the same skill.
Their remedy to the problem is ‘League Play’ where you participate in placement matches that decide how good you really are. After that you are put in a division that is similar to your skill. It’s unconfirmed at this point but Treyarch will most probably have divisions named as Bronze, Silver, Gold and maybe even Platinum.
Once in your division you can go ahead and play in a smaller community comprised of equals.
Once the game is launched Treyarch will be keeping a close on the League Play. Based on it’s performance they will decide whether or not to integrate it into the main game in the future.
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 will release for all major platforms on 13th of November.
