Because in your post which I quoted, you made it seem like everyone had opinion A which then turned to everyone having opinion B, then C etc. However, the majority of people have probably had the same opinion all along; e.g. 50% want region lock, 50% don't. Telling everyone who now gets laggy, unstable games to 'stop playing' is hardly a solution lol.. I bought this game specifically for the online matchmaking.
I'm in the UK and definitely liked having region lock, with stable games being one of the best elements of the Halo 5 matchmaking experience. I reckon it was taken out on Monday/Tuesday, because what was a winning streak in Team Arena for the previous day's turned in to a long, somewhat-laggy loss streak, where the opposing team had a clear server-advantage in every game. Needless to say I doubt I'll ever reach Onyx in any playlist ever again, and it's going to make matchmaking unplayable.How do I seem oblivious? I'm just stating what was generally stated through these forums and various other ones.
For the love of Cortana. First people want region lock, we got it, people wanted it gone, we got that, and now people want region lock again! Make up your minds.You seem to be oblivious to the fact that there's a wide selection of people in the world, and those people may have differing opinions.
I don't know tho, I like the dedicated servers. Its like having eternal host, for me anyways, I like it a lot better than getting into a P2P game where somebody 5000+ miles away grabs host.
Besides that though. If matchmaking is "literally unplayable" then stop playing it, no body is forcing you too.
But to clear up your confusion, my post was designed to be a general portrayal of the shifts of player's attitudes towards the region lock issues. It would be a shame if that post came off as offensive to you because, like you said, everybody has an opinion. If you would like, I can go back and edit it to say, "For the love of Cortana. First people want region lock, we got it, people wanted it gone, we got that, and now
people want region lock again! Make up your minds. (This post does not apply to anyone who had a different opinion)
Oh and that is so
true, 343i should not tell everyone who is lagging in Europe to stop playing. I just stated what I
would do. I mean, if I was you, I wouldn't want to play with me either, from playing arena while typing this post I am just mowing down people way more easily than I normally do, the match just finished as I typed this sentence, and from checking the locations the other players, they are from the UK. Wow, an EU server does seem like the best solution now, if you guys ever get it I will miss these types of matches because they are so much fun.
Anyways, happy gaming to you.
