I was playing Black Ops 2 on the Steam free weekend (I don't actually own any Call of Duty games), which drove me to go back and play some Battlefield 3, and Max Payne 3 and reminded me that I actually like multilayer shooters.
However, I was also quickly reminded why I don't play them - team balance is almost always horrible. This is especially true in BF3, where I commonly enter games that end with one team having 90% of their tickets remaining. I know this could be solved by joining a group and playing against other organized groups, but I would really like to remain a casual player.
I would rather games were able to auto-match me with other players of a similar skill, or at the very least balance teams so that each had the same aggregate mean level of skill. Are there any shooters that do that? I would also be interested in hearing about other genres, but shooters interest me most at this very moment.
In case this is too long, here is a summary:
Are there any games that have a player/team matching system that works well, and results in even games?
