Skill-Based Matchmaking that you did not know about...

Yes! It's true. Just like DOTA2 or CSGO, PUBG matchmaking is also somewhat based on your stats and skills. If you are a crown ranked player in Asia and you want to play in Europe, after 5-6 games you will start seeing enemies who are as skilled as you. They will either match you against another Crown ranked players or someone who has a Crown rank in a different server and playing in Europe at the same time as you.

It does take the game 5-10 matches but soon after that, you will realize your enemies are highly skilled. The bots, however, are still the same for you in a new server. The bots are connected to tier and matchmaking so in a new server with a lower tier you will still see a lot of bots as they are put in the game for newer players but in the same game the top 10 ranked players will have same skill level as you do, however, they might have different Rank tier.

So, in the end, it does not matter what your rank or tier is, Your matchmaking is completely based on your skills and that is why in any new server you will get a good fight at any tier.

The game seemed easy when you started but is it getting tougher day by day?

Yes, it does get tough for everyone. There are mainly 3 top reasons behind why your games are getting tougher with time.

  1. Bots: As you play more games, your tier goes higher and higher. The bots are introduced to the game to entertain the new players and make the matchmaking faster. Once your tier starts going higher, the number of bots in every game decreases and you face more and more real players. Real players are smart, they know the mechanics and they are here to win, unlike the suicidal bots who will give you enough time to aim and shoot and not deal much damage to you.
  2. Skill: More games you play more things you learn. Slowly you will learn to crouch, jump to dodge a sniper and etc. PUBG mobile records 9 different factors to decide your skill level. As your skill level goes higher you match against players who have the same skill level as you do. Bullying the noob is easy but fighting your own size can often be frustrating if you don't take it seriously.
  3. Tier: Tier is not the only factor to decide the matchmaking but it definitely does make your games tougher. As mentioned earlier, you meet fewer bots in a higher tier which means you will get fewer kills. Also, the fact that a higher tier does mean a higher skill level. This is not the universal fact but if someone is grinding a lot of games to reach the next tier then they are also learning rapidly with each game and improvising which is making them better at the game.

Temcent Games has announced PUBG Lite, a toned down version of PUBG which can be played in low end PCs and mobile devices.
