A MM ban lasts exactly as long as the match you just quit out of, so you can run into the same to4 ruining the playlist the next game. Great design. Can we get the feature back where you block people and can't match them anymore? Those were the days.

I wish that was a thing still too. Also wasn’t that only a feature in H5?

No because then bad kids block all the competition.. That's not cool

Then they either never find matches or get their 50s playing against brain dead kids

Not in ranked obivously. Ranked also has party restrictions so this isn't an issue.

Ahhh fair enough guyyyy. It was bringing up PTSD from xbone. 

When kids were blocking good ppl and the good ppl were getting bad rep because of it.

 

Oh man remember when 343's solution to the quitting problem was to just lower their rep every time they quit. Man I can't wait for their Halo Infinite ideas!

I like that it was for social only. It was a proper way to avoid to the people searching big parties in BTB or Warzonre. Eventually 343 removed that. Gosh Idk why we can’t have partial party matching in social. Full team matching yes is too far, but in no shape or form should 4 or 8 solos match a massive party.

I mean that doesn’t fix shit bro . It could be the best halo ever and if the mm system allows parties to match solos, Without even a duo or triple squad being on their side Then shit will always suck. Party matching is a must and a great need. Heck’s even bo4(and I’ll assume MW community) had huge threads complaining of matching full  parties. Some people believe that just because it’s social means they shouldn’t need to sweat all the time which is partly their fault for searching full squads. But then my question is this? Why should you be allowed to match scrubs and pub stomp? It’s not the games fault that the people who search full parties of four are good at the game like yourselves. Sure an MMR could help out here, but mmrs are so inaccurate at times. Just some form of partial team matching is in order. 
Quick play from h5 is probably one of thee best social playlist ever, since it allows a Mac party size of two so you’re guaranteed to never match a full party of 4.

If the game was good it wouldn't have systems that suck.

Anyone else despise how bad the default settings / hardcore settings gap has gotten? 

CE: Very basic changes, functionally the same except for voiced timers and displayed random spawn locations. 

H2: Some disallowed jumps and pickups on certain maps, BR starts.

H3: Faster BMS and jump height, raised weapon damage, most maps have their weapon spawns different, some changed player spawns, BR starts. 

Reach: Faster BMS, higher jump height, bleedthrough, no bloom, completely changed weapon spawns, no AA, completely different player spawns, and forge maps. 

H5 is somewhat decent in this regard as it managed to keep things streamlined even if autos were annoyingly broken and radar was left in. 

The Bungie circlejerk really has to die. They progressively ruined each game they released, in terms of base MM settings. H:CE was good on complete accident, H2 was good through an even less likely accident, H3 was mechanically solid though a big downgrade from H2's shooting/melee and had terrible settings for standard play that were completely different in ranked MLG.

Reach was the first game they were actually competent enough to tailor the game to their vision, and it blew dicks out its ass to the point where MLG settings were basically a different Halo game.

Then every game out there sucks. Most games don’t have party matching for social. I know you don’t play many games fam but that’s literally the case in all the mainstream games with a competitive platform. I’m not speaking on competitive for say, I’m saying when it comes to social play most games don’t have any methods that can make matches “fair”.

How is it that skill ranks still dont appear anywhere in the pre or post game lobbies?

 

It's like we're back in H4 where you have to fucking guess what your rank is or go to a third party website.  43 steps backwards.

Because 343 doesn’t want people seeing who they’re matching. People attend to dodge.
