On the contrary. Since returning to H5 , I've mostly been playing against randomly matched players. That being said, I have only played 4v4 & 2v2 playlists so I cant really say the same about big team or wzPaarthurnaks wrote:There is the issue of single players being matched with full fire teams. From your description, that's the only reason I can see why it has changed, other than you being out of practice and everyone else having stuck with it.Ferocity Rx wrote:Back in 2016 I was on the Halo 5 grind, I would play regularly (wz & arena), usually placed onyx, sometimes got into champ and I would match all champion players for FFA placement games (the struggle was real).
I ended up selling my xbox before the summer of 2016 and haven't played it since. A few weeks ago I ended up getting an xbox out of boredom and oh boy... how times have changed.
The game is a lot less populated which is not too suprising but what did catch my eye was that I was getting 5 shot by everyone and their dogs. So here I am trying to get back into the game and diamond players which I would run circles around 3 years ago are destroying me.
I have definitely gotten worse from not playing as long as I did, but has the average H5 player gotten better? On top of that most players seem to have better situational awareness and I keep getting team shot on a regular.
Anyone have similar experiences? Did you end up being better than you were before or you never made it back to that level cause the competition caught up?
