How do you guys determine if you're running against a full team? I play BTB mostly now, but even when I was playing the other ranked and social playlists I very rarely ran into full teams. It could be my MMR as well. Maybe the higher tier matches this occurs more often. Heck, Mint Blitz tweeted about this very thing yesterday so you aren't the only one hoping for a change.
The problem right now is they tried this already. Teams were weighted much more and that resulted in teams ending up in never ending searches. So which is it? Do we sacrifice the solo player or the team players? With the population and the amount of playlists we have I believe the solo player needs to be sacrificed a little. This is coming from a mostly solo player.
Personally I relish going against teams and coming up with the win. I just wish more players were willing to communicate, try, and learn a little more. Yes, you're a solo player, but you have a mic right? Make call outs, don't quit, take something from the match and move on to the next one. There is always the possibility of a great match around the corner.
I agree with this heavily! The amount of times I play by myself and start talking on the mic and they clearly hear me because of reactions to my call outs, and then I hear someone scrambling to put their mic on is unreal. I always say "why not just have your mic on? and people always tell me it's because they hate getting yelled at or this or not. Then I always say I 100% understand that but then I say, why not just mute them and carry on. I just don't get it... People used to always mute in halo 2/3 times... Now no one does. It's like people have forgotten aboat the mute button feature. Granted there was no individual mute when Halo 5 first came out and you still can't mute people in the pregame lobby which is ridiculous and a complete and utter joke I must say, but you can in game.
Talk on your mic people, use the mute botton when someone is a jerk.
How do you guys determine if you're running against a full team?Name recognition or you can tell just by how they play.
I've encountered a few teams, but I think most of my games have been against solo players so it hasn't been a big issue for me.
Name recognition, ok maybe... But how they play, no. I solo queue a lot and use a mic, so when I go into a game with say three people, using Team Slayer as the example, that I've never played with, I'm communicating with them. I'm not in there party, fireteam or anything.
@Op honestly I don't really feel like we need that option. All that does is limit the people that you can play with/against. I agree with DaxSeven09
, people just need to talk more if they really care that much about winning. Also, ZaedynFel
(who works at 343I in case you don't know who he is) own stats even show that people who are playing with each other and communicating don't have that much higher of a chance to win minus in high level play. A better system is to have a better matchmaking system which 343I is working on... But that doesn't matter if no one's playing the game really to begin with OR the population is pretty low.
