Adding a ranked mode to a battle royale game is difficult and Epic is still altering Arena Mode to be the best it can be. One of the key concerns is matchmaking. Even in games with much smaller teams like League of Legends, Overwatch and Rocket League, matchmaking is difficult.
Fortnite recently started experimenting with something called custom matchmaking. Without a custom matchmaking key, it is random who you are queued up with when you start a game of Battle Royale. Custom matchmaking is intended for streamers, content creators and competitive players.
Epic Games has announced the custom matchmaking feature for " Fortnite Battle Royale " a long time ago. The video game developer first talked about it in one of the state of development posts, making players excited for things to come. Unfortunately, only a small number of players has been able to use the feature so far, and it has never been officially released.
Matchmaking is the existing automated process in League of Legends that matches a player to and against other players in games. The system estimates how good a player is based on whom the player beats and to whom the player loses. It knows pre-made teams are an advantage, so it gives pre-made teams tougher opponents than if each player had queued alone or other premades of a similar total skill level Riot Games Inc.

It'll help avoid situations where console controller players go up against those who use a keyboard and mouse. PlayStation 4 players who use a keyboard and mouse are considered to have an advantage over controller users - Microsoft currently does not provide official keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox One.
