Same here. Turned 31 this year and I play maybe 1 or 2 sessions a week for a few hours. I don't care to rank anymore. Social playlists have given me enough variety of good players and noobs alike that the 2v2 and 4v4 games are generally pretty balanced out but on Halo 2 8v8 I see way too many elites wielding SMGs on BR starts. I play this game to relive the old feelings I got on the maps and gametypes, not to be super competitive. I don't speed-run when I replay Mario 3 or Donkey Kong Country 2... I simply play them to enjoy them.LethalQ wrote:I can say I have no desire to play ranked in MCC. They are old games and I just want to play for fun. Match composer is awesome as I can play stictly slayer in the titles I want. Not to mention the only rank I ever cared about is FFA and we dont have it in MCC.xXxFir3st0rmxXx wrote:Well they put objective in every ranked playlist and heavily weighted it toward objective games. Objective doesn't appeal to a large proportion of the population, so by November the ranked population dropped enough that 343 adjusted weighting towards slayer, but by that point the damage was done.
Ultimately though the MCC population is unlikely to rebound. That means not enough people for ranked playlists to work. If I'm going to play unbalanced games, I might as well play unranked, where I can play the game type of my choice. The other challenge with the MCC is the age of the player base. Alot of us are in our 30s, and we don't have the time or interest to grind ranks like we did in high school or college.
