Quickplay is working as intended, but Competitve needs a little more love.
The matchmaking system behind Destiny 2’s Competitive Crucible PVP mode will be refined to ensure that equally skilled players are more likely to be pitted together in the future.
The news was confirmed in the latest weekly update to be posted on the game’s official site, and follows a week of active play which has given the development team enough data to analyse the situation. Turns out there’s a bug in the system.
“According to the finer minds on our team, the Competitive playlist needs some love,” it says. “Too many players are getting stomped by opponetns who grossly outmatch them.
“In order to match you properly with an opponent in your league, we need to apply your skill rating. There is a bug we need to fix to ensure that this is done properly. We are applying that fix right now.”

As the news was posted late yesterday evening, you can expect to see improvements to the matchmaking system when you next log in.
Those who have been taking a bit of a beating will find themselves with more of a fighting chance, while those dishing out the pain should find themselves up against worthier opponents.
Bungie concluded the post by stressing that Crucible is a mode that’s in a state of continuous evolution, and further updates will be made as and when they’re required.
