For a long time now, the online shooter CoD Warzone has been a steady and popular part of the gaming community. Instead of losing popularity, more and more players continue to join, many of whom bring with them their years of experience in the franchise. Within the community, that creates a strong contrast between new and inexperienced as well as professional and long-time players. Although developers deny it, many suspect that the popular game is based on SBMM, or skill-based matchmaking. Thus, the allocation of lobbies as well as players and the accompanying difficulty level should depend on the player’s own skills and progress.
The not insignificant percentage of players who prefer a calmer and less competitive way of playing sometimes feel disadvantages by this system. Thus, the idea of running the game including all connections, including all connections, was born. Thanks to this method, using a VPN tunnel opens the gates to a much wider range of lobbies, server and thus a different difficulty level tailored to your needs. In some circumstances, using such a VPN tunnel can also increase the data speed in the game and improve your ping.
How to Play CoD Warzone in Easier Lobbies?
As in most games, CoD Warzone’s software automatically assumes your VPN connection’s target country. You don’t have to worry about the game’s target country, other than when choosing your VPN server. Once you have chosen a suitable VPN location, you’ll quickly discover the benefits of matching with easier opponents and a faster ping.
The target country often influences lobby difficulty
Before you set your target country, you should consider a few factors. Skill-based matchmaking is programmed to connect as many players of similar rank into a lobby, which often involves difficult opponents and challenging matches.
In a target country where there tends to be fewer players playing or if it is currently early in the morning, the game must draw from the contingent of players currently online. This often makes for a stark difference between ranks, and offers you an easier difficulty level. So always consider the factors of time and location when choosing your target.
A dedicated VPN can slightly improve your ping
The choice of server country can also improve your ping in certain cases, thus leading to faster in-game response times. However, in the case of VPNs in very distant countries, the ping can actually become worse.
Therefore, the best thing to do here is to try out which server and option best suits your needs.
