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.

To solve the quitter problem mostly. At least when people quit this time, it's nice to know that they can be replaced as opposed to being screwed from the beginning.
By "solving" the quitter problem you also encourage quitting more. IDGI.
Quitting isn't a big issue if quitters can be replaced.
Why do you need to replace the quitters? The losing team always quits. So what? LET THEM LOSE.
The people that join in the middle of the match HATE joining in the middle of the match! They don't want to be on the losing team and/or waste one of their Double XP games. People should just suck it up and take the loss.
I think I've said this before, but the game feels empty to me. Because of this cod-like loadout system, they eliminated regular weapon spawns (which I don't really understand in the slightest)
What happened to fighting for the power weapons, along with knowing when and where they were going to spawn, which could then turn the tide of the game, etc. Once you break through the shell of the novelty of a new Halo game, it's just... empty.
I also am against JIP. It's a complete waste of time joining a game and your team is either outnumbered or losing by a large margin, or a combination of both. I am reluctant to play MP mostly thanks to that. If they must keep it in, they should only send you to a game in progress if there are absolutely no lobbies available..
