PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS 20.2 update: normal match matchmaking system

With this update players will see improvements to the matchmaking system for Normal Matches to have it work better based on players’ Matchmaking Rating (MMR). Previously, Matchmaking was based on a player’s pre-made party’s average MMR. However, matchmaking will now be based on the highest MMR within a player’s party. The goal is to preserve current squad play mechanics while focusing on individual stats rather than a team as a whole.
