Getting to level 10 is SUPER easy. That's much too low... But I agree 50, seems too high.
That's a tad extreme tbh. I'd say to be more logical that we would introduce a cap of level 10 (or it's h6 equivalent) about 6 months after H6 releases to join into normal matchmaking. Otherwise they will be stuck in a type of 4v4 "training grounds" playlist, or, if Campaign can alter rank, have completing the campaign automatically set the Spartans rank to 10.
They will always be a thing a no matter what we do. Sadly. Only method of fixing it is if their was a rank cap they have to reach. Like lvl 30 or 50. At that point I don’t think most people will take the time to grind a new character to that lvlI agree with this post.
The more I think about it, the more I feel like this is one of the only solutions. It wouldn't fix everything obviously, but it would help.
This forces smurphs to stay out of the most popular playlists off the bat, which is a deterrent to now do in the first place, but doesn't force actual new players to be stuck out of matchmaking altogether or getting destroyed by veteran players to the game in other populated playlists. It's a win-win.
I was thinking more like 20-25, but maybe 30 would be ok, I don't know. Mainly I agree with the fact that being x level would help (not eliminate) second accounts.
Personally, I feel that a level cap just wouldn't work out for the better.Sure, it may hinder smurfing in a way, but it may also throw off some new players or even veterans from playing. Since Halo 3 I did nothing but play ranked and it was fun. I know that if a level cap was added into Halo 5 or especially Halo 6 some people would play the game, get bored, and maybe even quit all together because smurfing would still be a problem in that closed environment. And even still, is smurfing even all as bad as people say it is? From my knowledge I have never seen a smurf yet, but I feel like smurfs in your game whether on your team, or the enemy team, are just the best ways to improve yourselves. Sure, the smurf may have the agenda of stomping beginners, but you can counter that agenda by just looking at what they did, studying that, and emulating it to the best extent. And who knows, maybe you can find that smurf on his main and stomp him.
