Join in progress literally ruined Halo 4.

I can't count the number of times matchmaking has started a game 5v2 with the plan of adding people mid game. WHY NOT WAIT TIL ITS 5V5 IN THE LOBBY BEFORE STARTING SO THEN YOU DON'T RELY ON A HORRIBLE, UNNECESSARY MECHANIC?

Don't get me wrong, I like this game. Matchmaking is just literally unbearable.

Like I said....the gameplay is good. No complaints about game mechanics at all....

Joining a match thats halfway underway in regicide is ridiculous. 9/10 games in SWAT are already in progress. I just don't get why Halo needed this system implemented, literally makes no sense. I can't have fun playing MM alone because I can never get in a solid game. When I play with a full team we get put in lobbies that are 5v0 and then it wastes a 2xp game of mine. It's impossible to get into a BTB game that isn't halfway underway alone, from my experience. I don't get how anyone can actually enjoy this system.

People are literally encouraged to quit more now that there's no penalty. Ironic that something designed to fill lobbies to balance quitters promotes the behavior it seeks to stop.

However, the skill system does a good job of matching you against competent people after like 15 games in any playlist, I must give that credit.


Or just deal with a loss and play the next round lmao... Games last what 10 mins

JIP doesn't bug me. The amount of lag and long MM times compared to previous Halos does though. I hope they're still sorting out server issues, but I doubt it.

Yeah, way worse than being autoscrewed when you lose teammates and spend the rest of the game outnumbered.


Play with people you know, problem solved. Don't have anyone to play with? Make friends. Isn't hard.

I'd take being screwed once in a blue moon without teammates over being screwed in 80% of the games I search for.

I shouldn't have to join a game and take a loss in order to get into a lobby. Most of the people in that lobby will leave after the game anyway, resulting in a continuation of the unbalanced system.

Why doesn't everyone just shut the hell up and play the damn game? Stop letting video game stats stress you out so bad...
