Tf2 matchmaking takes forever


Inspired by CS:GO and other games, TF2 Competitive Mode will have 18 ranks to be earned, ranging from “Fresh Meat” to “Death Merchant,” and also bronze, silver, and gold medals that will be awarded post-match for outstanding performance in the score, kills, damage, healing, and support categories. Penalties for leaving games before they're over will be harsh: Abandoning a game in progress will count as an automatic loss and result in the deduction of points, which could actually cost you an earned rank. You'll also be temporarily banned from joining new matches, and the more matches you abandon, the longer each ban will last. 

Each player has a rank which can be leveled up by performing well in competitive matches. Players start at the rank "Fresh Meat" and can level the rank up as they win more matches.

This new patent appears to be about how Activision plans to use “tricks” in their matchmaking system to lure players to purchase more in-game items through the course of playing a game. Specifically (one aspect of the large patent), the patent mentions that high skilled players get paired with low-skilled players to purposefully encourage low-skilled players to spend more money to get better in-game items to match up against higher skilled players.
