Yup, exactly. Because of this, if my team doesn't capture the center base then I leave right away because there's about a 10% chance of being able to win that game.
You leave? wow, that's not nice man, I've always had come backs
Yep, because about 90% of the time that my team captures the center base we win. And 90% of the games that the other team captured it and I left and checked the score after I left or stayed in and played, my team lost. There's few games that my team has came back and captured it and ended up winning. So i'll take the 90% accuracy rating and just leave at the begining and let someone else take my spot. This does exclude the map Battle of Noctus however because that game is usually a fair game, but a map like Escape from ARC, i've probably only lost that like once or twice after capturing the center base and have never came back when the other team got it. So I'm good I'll take my accurate history and leave.
Sorry but that's just sad man, not even going to try at all. seems like you let your team do all the work and you just sit back and get kills. Work as a team for once and you might actually meet some good players and make friends to que up with
"seems like you let your team do all the work and you just sit back and get kills" ...... So are you saying I do do the work or I don't do the work??? Because i'm pretty sure that getting kills is what doing work is. You can even look at my K/D ratio and see that I clearly do well. But like I said, if there's a 90% chance of losing, them I'm not even gonna bother. Also not gonna argue with you online over nothing, so peace out.
" 90% of the time that my team captures the center base we win" Not going to argue with you, you quit out if your team doesn't do something, to me, that seems like you don't do anything.
Cool, if that's what you think that means! You got freewill and the ability to think and interpret anything you want, feel free to interpret that as however you please!
Couldn't do this in Halo 3, these new games are made to let you do this. It's still sad either way that if you don't win you quit...sounds like a damn baby. Yeah cool your KD is up, you quit your games if your team doesn't capture right away. Stop throwing temper tantrums lol
Herkfoot is the problem in Halo/warzone. Quits out at as soon as the game isn't going there way. We will soon see a "banned for no reason" post.
A few days ago there was a tryhard hacker clan who invaded our armory in the first minute of the game. 7 people on my team quit before they even capped. I was number 8 because honestly, Escape from A.R.C. is so bad you kind of have to leave when that happens, and with groups like that, there is no point playing against them, as they will just farm for kills for 20 minutes after the triple cap (which was a match I had 2 days ago)

Hey context Noops,

How do you make friends on warzone? I have added like 20 people from the Carnage report to my friends list and no one talks to me or accepts my invites to Fireteam. Is there another way of building a team that I don't know about? All I do is solo warzone for a year because I can't find any teammates.
Just talk in the game and see if anyone else talks. Then usually if you play well others you speak to will queue up with you. I use to only solo q, but now I run with a few different squads for WZ
So today the only players with mics were 2 kids who were so loud the sound was distorted, and this seems to be the norm for most games.
Yesterday I actually stayed in game chat and it took 3 games to have a competent person talk back on the mic. Just luck of the draw and the fact that most squads stick to party chat.

If you catch me solo queing you might be able to hear me screaming my brains out at the idiots who are going after the 25 point boss while we are in the middle of a fight for the main middle base whether its fortress, garage, spire, etc. I love to search solo to stay competitive, but it really is cancer.

Wanna team up with me?

With the advent of party chat, I'd argue solo-queuing any team based online game is a fool's errand. Things only get worse in games with larger scale modes where you can't realistically have a major impact on the final outcome no matter how sick your MLG skills are. SECRET FACE has the right idea: just go into every WZgame expect you will lose and try to enjoy the individual engagements between you and the enemy. Otherwise, you'll either go insane or find yourself a nice Spartan Company so you can be part of the sole queue stomp.

Huh, now I have the urge to play WZ again: I'll bill you my psychologist's bill later this month, OP.
There Kinda is nothing you can do about that, you are randomly matched with people, congrats for holding the top, but you cannot control your team.
I'm sorry to hear that others are having such bad experiences. Warzone is still my favorite playlist/gametype in H5, I solo queue like 99% of the time (I only periodically party up if I see someone else from my SC happens to be online) and while there's certainly the occasional steamrolling, my Warzone W/L is still around 50%. I typically play on Balanced search settings at peak times. (US evenings.)

Even when it is a losing effort, I try to just be among the more productive people on my team to have something positive to take away from it. True curbstompings where we're triple capped and farmed for 20 minutes are pretty rare, for me.
I didn't know anyone else was going through this. I only ever solo match warzone. In nearly always top by alot, but my w/l is barely over 50%. What's worse is that I frequently match with 12 man stacked teams from companies like nonstop, heresy, dominated, and others. If 343 is going to put in warlords for team v team action, they should have known it would never be used. Teams would always rather match random players than other teams, meaning I always get analy raped by full teams. There are two fixes that I think would solve the problem. The first is to force people in fire teams at or above 6 to play in warlords. This would eliminate much of the bullshittery. The second would be to FIX THE -Yoinking!- ALGORITHM. Putting me(the one good player) on a team of noobs and pitting us against a team of normies just straight up isnt fair. I think that should rank every player from best to worst, then go down the line sending players to opposite teams, so that every player on one team has a roughly equally skilled counterpart. Until something like this is implemented, I'm done with halo 5. There is only so much i can take before -Yoink- matchmaking ruins a perfectly good multiplayer.

If you look at the win rate of the champion ranks in BTB .they have abnormally higher win rate compared to other champs in Slayer or Arena .Slayer champer often win littler over 50 percent. While BTB champs win almost 90 percent. That just shows how bad the matchmaking is when considering teams .
I think part of it was due to BTB having looser matching restrictions which were just changed today and it could also be related to a lack of equal competition. Most of those people on the leaderboard play in the same parties and there's actually not that many considering it's eight people per team. There could certainly be equally skilled players out there not on the leaderboard, but there's likely just not enough of them searching at the same time so they get a few decent players on their team while the rest are average or lower and they end up losing against those parties.
That's exactly the point. In warzone, and in BTB, those are dominated by a few clans. Anyone who are good faces those teams over and over.
Although I appreciate the compliment, it still sucks to wind up in horrendous losing streaks. I have been dodging games when I see certain emblems at this point
I do the same thing. The pink snake gives me ptsd

Bro you have no idea what it's like to be a good player putting up with awful teammates. I'm here for a good time, and I'm only having a good time if I'm winning. So If i get teamed with a bunch of mentally disabled middle schoolers, you can bet your -Yoink- I'm going to quit out and not waste my time. I have better things to do than get farmed.
Man I learned that YEARS ago.

Here's me hoping I can let my presence known as the white rhino lmfao.
As a solo queue'r I would agree. Any big team game, if you solo queue the odds get stacked against you as you run into grouped teams. I actually prefer that tho. I lose a lot of games but I get tougher matchups.
Play arena, easy fix.
I solo queue all the time in Warzone. Only time I do queue up is with a friend, and even then most I queue up with is only with that one friend on the regular. I've gotten the good games and the bad games in solo queue.

Haha yup. It got worse when Spartan Companies became a thing.

Yeah I occasionally get some good games with close to even teams but most of the time I find myself outmatched by the other teams which are usually large parties groups
