After all the backlash that Reach received for not implementing the system that Halo 2 and 3 used, why the hell wasn't this included? That should have been one of the first things that they worked on when designing multiplayer.
This really wouldn't surprise me at all. Big mistake by 343 if that's what happened. Better to take your time and turn out a better product, especially after the last iteration generated so much controversy.
according to 343i they needed time to beta test the trueskill system in a real time matchmaking environment and running simulations on over several million virtual users was too intensive and would have pushed back the release.
considering everything else they have botched I dont really buy this excuse
