Amongst the stats displayed in the companion app is the Ok/D ratio of all gamers in the foyer, info not supplied by the sport itself. Those ready in a foyer have then been backing out of it in the event that they felt their probabilities of success have been unfavorable. This rendered the matchmaking system fully pointless. Other makes use of for the app have been stream sniping. As such, many aggressive Call of Duty gamers have grow to be involved over the app’s prevalence.
The patch will imply that in a match, some of the stats the app shows will now solely have relative values and never absolute values. Shymko defined some of the opposite adjustments, notably to Ok/D ratio, and why the app was patched:
Cheaters are one of the worst issues of Warzone and on-line gaming total. We needed to assist the group and spotlight these gamers which are having extraordinarily excessive metrics in their earlier matches and on the similar time give an instrument for gamers to see that they only may die to the fortunate shot. Also, such gamers will be spectated through the match extra exactly so customers can report them if they are going to detect actual cheaters. The app additionally has quite a bit of options that can monitor participant dynamics, each ability and can assist him to get higher.
Still, by understanding the significance of dialogue we determined to make a change in our app to minimize the place for any sort of abuse. Information about foyer gamers will likely be proven solely after the warm-up, and the common foyer Ok/D worth will likely be displayed solely on the finish of the match.
Ironically one of the app’s intentions was to flag cheaters inside a Warzone foyer, however the adjustments Shymko has made gained’t make that attainable any longer. As such, he’s asking for suggestions from app customers as to what they give thought to doubtlessly including some of this info again into the app additional down the road.
