The new weekly bulletin is out by Bravo! This week he covers the new Halo 4 Ricochet Forge Contest going on for the community, along with a update going on for Halo 4 Match-Making. You can catch the full bulletin here.
On Monday we made some updates to Halo 4 Matchmaking, and the specifics of this update were included in this week’s Matchmaking Update – if you’re interested, go read if you haven’t already, and then read below for some additional insight.
The on-disc Ricochet maps have been updated to the “weapon tuning” layouts, with balanced and optimized starting spawns, weapons, and added geometry in select locations. Additionally, we’ve added Onyx, Dispatch, and Simplex due to their symmetrical, arena-type layouts. We’ll continue to monitor feedback regarding not only the map selection but also goal, weapon, and ball respawn placement, and also cannot wait to bring in the best of the best from the Ricochet Forge Contest.
