Feedback - Ranked Seasons
Seasons should be at least 2 Months. A calendar cadence like in Halo 5 sounds very nice!ske7ch wrote:hey folks - As you know, we're nearing the end of the first season of ranked play in Halo Wars 2 (just waiting on that Colony DLC to drop!).
The current plan of record is to kick off a new season with the release of each new leader since this new content shakes things up and will surely always include some amount of broader balance tweaks in parallel. This makes sense in theory.
When a future DLC runs into delays, it starts to cause some challenges as the season lingers on indefinitely. Likewise, if a DLC is delayed but the following one isn't, we could have a situation where a season may only last 2 to 3 weeks. That doesn't seem too ideal.
I'd love to hear you what you all think -
Bonus question: In your opinion, what's the ideal season length (regardless of the DLC/balance component)
- Do you prefer to have season rollovers remain tied to DLC releases? (even if it means inconsistent / unpredictable durations)
- Or, would you rather just have seasons tied solely to a calendar cadence (similar to Halo 5), even though you'd have balance changes and new leader drops coming in the middle of an active season?
I've also gathered some feedback and have passed to the team regarding the number of placement matches required for a season. I've heard from quite a few folks who think it should be less than 10 games if a season is barely a month long.
As the design team evaluates and reviews the season structure going forward I'd love to help round up your thoughts and feedback for their consideration. Thanks!
I don't know, finding 7 matches in 6 weeks might be tough on PC ...HobbinGuy wrote:1. Separate from DLC. We will just have to deal with game changes or a new leader mid-season.
2. Season should be 4-8 weeks. 6 weeks seems ideal.
3. Placement should be 7 matches. That seems reasonable in a 6 week or so timeframe.
