That's why I loved Halo 3's System so much:Halo 5 uses the same TrueSkill system.
Like in Double Team: You are 40 and your friend 40 so the game will search for players +/-5 Skill levels. When you were 40 and your friend 20 it searched between 30 and 40 [max -10 skill levels from the strongest member of the group]. It was just a really good system.Do we know if/how Halo 5 is different?
And Social always felt like a pure mixture - how it should be.If by pure mixture you mean completely random... no, I don't think that's the way to do it.
So I hope they will throw away that Bronze, Silver, Gold etc [by the way, in nowadays games gold is kinda bad eh? what really sucks] and reeintedruce the 1-50 Skill System.Again, it's the same system underneath. It doesn't really matter what labels you use. Oh, and the old '50' was never the real max - internally it went up to 60 (but only ever displayed 50). Diamond 3 equates to the old '50'. So you'll need to account for that in your new ranks.
Skill Level - Rank
0 - 9 [None]10 - 19 [Iron]20 - 29 [Bronze]30 - 39 [Silver]40 - 45 [Gold]45 - 49 [Platin]50 [Diamond]
Do we know Halo 5 is different?
- Yes, because when I was unranked I got matched with people from Bronze to Diamond
When I was Gold, I got Diamonds and Bronze player in my and the enemy Team. Had a Team where we were 3 Bronze Players and had a Diamond teammate - all 4 random - against a group of 4 Diamonds. Seems different to me.
Also there you see why it's different - cause I got matched with people way beyond my rank.
So tell me, why should Social be not random? I mean you got there all kind of players, from a good one to a bad one, from an newbie to the pro.It's social, where rank doesn't matter - well at least until people quit when there were 5x 5- Star Generals in the Enemy team.
I know the ranking is looking the same but it's less free-room for interpretation with who you got matched.
Halo 3 was always saying in which radius they were looking for your allies and enemies. But in Halo 5? Well it's random af.
Halo 5 is like:
Oh, I'm Gold honey! Wait a second, am I now just playing with Gold players, or some higher silver and some lower platin players? Uhm... Why is there an enemy team of 4 times diamond players while I got 3 times bronze and on my last game 3 unranked players?
