You seem quite muddled in your little reality. Hidden ranks make the game competitive. Hence the word, RANK. This is a social playlist; it should not have ranks. Just because I have an opinion does not mean you can call me a child. How immature
I did read your post correctly, I don't know why you are so confused about my response. When someone says something like "it's disgraceful" because a few playlists are missing, it really makes you appear entitled and childish.
Are you saying halo 5 doesn't have quality? For the hundredth time, hidden ranks don't make ANYTHING competitive. If you take off your nostalgia goggles and think back to halo 3's social slayer, you'd remember that there were tons of matches where teams would get destroyed because high level players would match up against low level players. The only reason why some take social seriously is because they care about their stats, and social and ranked stats are kept together. As I already said, that only applies for some.
Quality is what counts. Halo 3 social playlists WERE ACTUALLY SOCIAL, not having hidden ranks inside of them like Halo 5's. If you want to be technical, most of Halo 5 isn't social because most of the playlists have god damn ranking in them, whether you can see it or not. Halo 3, a game that was released 9 years ago, had more playlists at launch than Halo 5 did. Disgraceful
At launch, but now it's pretty full. Just to let you know, halo 3 ended up with 14 playlists, and halo 5 now has 14 playlists.
How does halo 5 focus too heavily on esports when there's 8 social playlists and 6 ranked playlists? Halo was knocked off its throne during halo Reach, not halo 5. Can you further explain why you don't think halo 5 is fun but halo 4 was?Lol, after 9 months at launch? Tell me, what Halo game only had six 4v4 playlists at launch? IT WAS AN INCOMPLETE GAME BUDDY. You cant justify -Yoink-. Halo 4 knocked off Halo. Get your facts straight m8. Or get rekt by the truth of these statements.
Edit: Also, your post doesn't really explain the title.
Just because a game is more recent doesn't mean it has to have way more content. Graphics, yes, a newer game should have better graphics than an older game (which halo 5 does). Content, definitely not. So, no, it's not "disgraceful" by any means. Honestly to me, you sound like a whining kid when he doesn't get sprinkles on his ice cream.
You love provoking arguments but unfortunately, I am not that type of person. "Honestly to me, you sound like a whining kid when he doesn't get sprinkles on his ice cream." You sir, made me laugh out loud for a solid five minutes. If you read my post in detail, you would have seen that at launch, Halo 3, a game that was released 9 years ago, had more playlists at launch than Halo 5 did. DISGRACEFUL. Of course, it seems you did not have your reading glasses on at the time you read my post, hence me repeating it in bold.
Second, you said, and I repeat "For the hundredth time, hidden ranks don't make ANYTHING competitive." So tell me, a rank is supposed to put players of similar skill levels together correct? And if it is hidden, it is still there correct? And before you say "No, it is not there" watch the video of an avid Halo player almost reduced to tears because he can't find a Big Team Battle match because he was too good at it, and due to his skill level being so high, he almost never found a match. And this was supposed to be in a social playlist... Your entire philosophy is, in a nutshell, rotten to the core because people are still put against players of their skill level, which isn't supposed to happen in a social playlist, because there should be NO ranks at all.
This my friend, is how your utterly squash an argument as poorly constructed and written as yours. I bid you, good day.
1. If you really wanted to play players with vastly different skill sets, you could set your search parameters to expanded.
2. So many complain that the ranking system matches them against players who aren't similar in skill, and now you're complaining that it matches way too close? I think one of you guys are exaggerating here.
3. Players should still be somewhat matched with others of similar skill or else there will be many games where teams are destroyed. Matching up with a guy who is similar skill doesn't mean the game is super competitive. You could easily set your mind to be laid back, but for some reason, you don't want to.
Why do you think that hidden ranks make social playlists competitive? I'd really like to hear your explanation. Social playlists are just meant to be more laid back than competitive playlists, and with hidden ranks or not, halo 5's social playlists accomplishes that.
You are twisting my words now. A child can have an opinion that all ice cream should be free, but that is considered childish, is it not? You sounded entitled when you said it was a disgrace. You know what other type of people are usually entitled? Children, so in my opinion, what said made you appear childish TO ME.
