Ghost Recon Wildlands update 8.2 patch notes

Ghost War mode

Thermal Vision perk balancing changes

 The Thermal vision perk will only be available to Support classes only and can only be used while operating the drone. Also, the game developers moved Quick Hands to the multiclass category.

Campaign mode

Ghost Recon Wildlands update 8.2 fixed a bug where some players got stuck on a “refreshing content” pop-up window when trying to join Narco Road or Fallen Ghosts.

PC version

Some players who had uninstalled EAC were receiving an error popup preventing them from launching the game. A new fix is added to prevent this error from coming again.

Matchmaking

The reason why the game matches players with different levels together is because matchmaking is done based on players’ Match Making Rating instead of level. MMR is basically a value representing the player’s skill and goes up and down depending on their win/loss ratio. At level 1, because the players haven’t won or lost a match yet, they are assigned a default rating value upon which we apply our MMR calculation algorithm (based on the Glicko-2 rating system) depending on round outcomes and also their own team’s and the opposing team’s MMR.

Ghost Recon Wildlands update 1.12 has lowered the starting MMR value below the global average MMR. With this fix, there will still be a chance for a level 1 player to match with higher level players, but their skill will be significantly lower, so matches will be more balanced.

Player progression

Game developers have noticed that the player progression from level 1 to 50 seemed to be much slower than anticipated. With Ghost Recon Wildlands update 8.2, developers managed to reduce the total time needed to reach level 50 to a much more comfortable amount so players will progress quicker.
