Respawn addresses matchmaking issues in Titanfall

Respawn Entertainment has revealed that it's been watching the performance of Titanfall and has discovered a problem with matchmaking, although the developer is on the case.

In a recent blog post on its website, Respawn said that the game finds teammates and opponents for you by using skill data. After building teams and those two teams play a few matches it is usually very clear which team is better. However, it says that it "wasn't taking full advantage of this information," and has therefore made some changes to address this:

1. Searching for teammates and opponents will now sometimes take more time to look for players that are a good skill level match, rather than purely prioritizing speed over quality. This will give us more time to build better teams and create closer games that are worth staying in for a longer period of time.

2. Rather than playing against the same opponents over and over, the game will periodically split the teams apart and search for new opponents for each team. This means if one team is dominating, we will update the skill for all of the players and then find each team a better suited match for the next round. Did you lose to a really great team? We'll make them disappear and replace them with a new opposing team - and they will have no idea that you just got your butts kicked. This should end some of the frustration with playing for extended periods when you're having an off night.

These changes will be available immediately in a new "Improved Matchmaking (Beta)" playlist that you can try right now under "Play Classic MP". 

Respawn says that it'll be keeping a close eye on the game to make sure it remains balanced and it successful it'll roll out these changes permanently.

I would just be happy to play 2 matches in a row. Every time I finish my match, the game freezes on the loading screen just before the next one, and I have to restart the game. The indicator in the bottom right spins, but it just hangs forever.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
