Is it perhaps that that not many players are playing SWAT this month or is it maybe that there aren't enough players in the Diamond/Onyx ranks to fill up a match these days? It seems that the wait times are much longer than last month.
I don't think swat was ever super popular so that might be the problem? I decided to rank in the first time since the 3 season or so and i found my matches fast I got diamond 4 too so idk
I haven't played swat in a few weeks because it takes long for me to find matches. I'm diamond 4 I think; most of the matches I was finding stuck me with onyx players (which was not a big deal, while some were clearly above my level, most of them I could compete with with no problem); maybe it's only higher level players left playing this mode.
It could not be as popular as other playlists. I remember it always had a very low population, in H4 or Reach, probably H4. It was the one with the counter. Always in the low 100's vs other playlists in the thousands.
