Latency based Matchmaking

Hello guys

i got a little proposition for today. Since everyone is whining about being matched with "junk Players" or "Noobs" (in a casual Game xD) i started thinking about matchmaking and i think skillbased, levelbased or anything in that regard is probably just not gonna happen for various reasons, BUT fear not as the title shows i have an idea that would probably help everybody.

Since lags, high MS and so on are problems people deal with on a regular basis in this and many other FPS Games could you maybe make that people with an average latency over 100 MS (that seems reasonable), will be Queued in a High latency Game.

So the people with normal MS (anything between 30 and 70MS seems average) dont have to deal with lagging players and the high latency players play each other (2 players with 200MS seems fairer then 1 with 35MS and the other with 150MS).

I dont know the logistics to do this but i think its smth probably everyone would appreciate, since Server Browser probably arent gonna happen.

Thoughts on that? MAybe somebody got some insight how the Devs would have to implement smth like that.

And remember guys keep it objective and be nice to each other <3

Cheers

    If every one played, or was able to play in the right region, this wouldn't be an issue.

    Aside from them taking down ping sites, you can change it in settings.

    Some do it just to find a game, but I'm sure some exploit it.

    Early morning playing I would end up in Euro servers and I thought Euro players were terrible compared to US players until I saw an explanation of how ping and the physics engine work on the Battlefield forums.

    Explaining it in detail is beyond my understanding.

    They deleted our African server, so now we can only play on EU server with high latency...not our fault.
