Halo 5: Guardians Discussion in Halo General Discussion Posted October 19, 2015 Biasing heavilty towards these matches is something we agree with. It makes sense. Hard and fast rules (4s vs 4s ONLY, no exceptions) are problematic. Particularly when you need to take skill, regional location, etc into account. So I'm assuming it's problematic due to search times, as a result of these factors? I feel once again this issue correlates to the number of ranked playlists in the game. To increase population and search times, I know I'm not alone in that I'd rather have all of these be hard rules just like Halo 3 and have only a couple ranked playlists than a bunch where the rank in the given playlist becomes seemingly less significant due to imbalanced matches.
