Hey everyone! I'm kicking off a Question of the Week to get your input for Halo 5 matchmaking. I know we have hundreds of posts around Waypoint that cover all manner of wants and requests for playlists but I'm really curious what the ONE THING is you want more than anything else. It could be an entire playlist, a mode, map or an adjustment to existing offering. No cheating - I mean THE single one thing you want for Halo 5 matchmaking more than anything else.
So, what's the one thing you want more than anything else for Halo 5 matchmaking?
PERMANENT PLAYLISTS,SOCIAL AND RANKED and update current playlists too.This is an issue that has plagued halo 5 since launch and to some degree that still exists.Add social snipers on arena maps only and make it perm,if you add shotty snipers with mythic shottys as game variant,make it perm,super fiesta etc.The last thing halo 5 needs since launch,is more temporary playlists,even if the population is lower than previous halos at/after launch(this is the truth sketch)just leave the playlist there and let people play them when they want to.Not everyone is gonna play halo 24/7.Update existing playlists like infection,team arena,slayer,swat,action sack,BTB with more 2+ game variants and maps(please for the love of god remove breakout rounds from AS and replace it with respawn modes and return breakout to the old breakout with all the 9+ community maps it had).Also you can make swat social since its not a competitive social and most people treat it as social.Have team objective replace it.A permanent halo 5 classic Evolved playlists tailored to halo 5 map design: http://teambeyond.net/forum/topic/14157-halo-5-evolved-settingsdetails-v2-update/

I posted this recently in the link below,a halo fan recently made a teaser of what Halo 5's lobby could have looked like and maybe how halo 6 lobby could look like.Credit goes to him of course: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/forums/f9237adeaf1742c09de144d7bf3f7507/topics/what-halo-5-s-pre-game-lobby-halo-6-could-be-like/7d83ec65-3505-41b6-828f-6ca7002446bf/posts?page=1
