Improving Matchmaking Last year we launched Prime Matchmaking with the goal of providing a better matchmaking experience. We started with that question, and have been experimenting with matching players using observed behaviors and attributes of their Steam account, including the overall amount of time they had spent playing CS:GO, how frequently they were reported for cheating, time spent playing other games on their Steam account, etc.
In matches created using Trust Factor, most players ended up generating fewer reports regardless of their Prime status. Starting matchmaking report, players will, by default, enter matchmaking using their Trust Factor rather than their Prime status in the short term.
Players with Prime status can still choose to additionally restrict their matchmaking pool to other players with Prime status—though Trust is always on. Q: What are the factors used in the new Trust Factor matchmaking system? If you have not linked your CS:GO account with a phone number, you should—doing so will improve your matchmaking experience.
These reports will help us improve the system. Be aware that when players are in a party, we use the lowest Trust Factor of any individual in the party for matchmaking purposes.
