GI Show – Is skill based matchmaking good for games?

On this week’s episode of The Inside Gamer Show, Ben Reeves, Leo Vader, Brian Shea and Dan Tack join me in discussing a ton of games, including Persona 5 Royal, Resident Evil 3, Sea of ​​Stars, Gears Tactics and Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord. The show’s big speaker is skill-based matchmaking (SBMM), and we’re trying to explain how it works and discuss how it affects your game for better or worse. We end with community emails that are always entertaining and enlightening.

We are performing this week from our homes while we are in quarantine, so please forgive us for any audio or video hiccups as we deliver content outside of the studio.
