Okay lets play social.

 

Why social I want to play ranked.

 

Because you suck too much to play ranked with.

 

Asshole.

 

Seems to be something you can't really escape from if its going to happen

What's your definition of "clean"? Just in case

Usually anything not involving the Arbiter and Chief's arse.

2015: The return of the gameplay commentary

Well, for Halo, you're gonna see a lot of gameplay commentaries and streams for Road to Champion rank. Calling it now.

That example doesn't really work for a few reasons:

 

1. Casual gamers are likely to avoid ranked anyway

2. Most people are aware when their friends are way higher skill than they are, in which case playing a casual playlist makes perfect sense.

 

I would never ask a Diamond player on my LoL friends list to play ranked with me because I know there's no way I could keep up.

So just have party size on in areas where applicable.

 

One thing I've always wanted from Halo is an in game clan system (or even just a squad of 4 people) where you create your clan/squad/team and queue up in a playlist that matches you against other premade 4-man teams and instead of just a single match it enters you into a best of 3 on different maps and game modes. Would be a nice tournament-style playlist that you can access from the comfort of your own home. Maybe one day...

Ya, it's not something you can escape but switching to social(that features many different playlists) is a lot more natural than switching accounts or being restricted to one ranked playlist.

This reads like something out of a 1990's weight lifting instructional.

I think a lot of people are missing the point of the OP. And if the OP isn't clear enough my posts on page 7 should have cleared it up.

 

In a nutshell: less ranked = more importance on those that are ranked, which is valuable to the game and it's players for many reasons. 4v4 is the most popular format, so logically that would be the one chosen if we were to limit to one.

Disclaimers: No one is saying any other formats aren't competitive, no one is saying the non-ranked shouldn't have skill-based matching.

 

easy, right?

 

LoL does have ranked 3v3 as well, it just isn't nearly as impressive as your 5v5 rank.

 

I do agree with your point in limited the ranked playlists, however in a game that has as much variety as Halo there's really no need to limit this to a SINGLE playlist. The reason CS and LoL limit it so much is because the games simply aren't competitive in other formats.

 

2-3 would be fine. Perhaps 2v2, 4v4 and 8v8 or FFA or something. (I do question how popular a ranked BTB playlist would be, I have a feeling a few people in this thread are vastly over estimating the player base that actually takes BTB seriously).

I'm going to make a road to negative 2 KD but it will probably not be many episodes. 

Considering a -2 K/D ratio isn't possible I figure you may be right.

I'll work you like I work my dumbbells. Always lifting and carrying them to the end.

 

Those are some fighting words right there, there's no backing out now
