OP Postums

Good Morning MCC Players,

Today, Nov 28, we released a Playlist Update for MCC to resolve some items based on community feedback. This update alters some settings in Halo 3 and Halo 2: Anniversary social Snipers gametypes, adjusts map and gametype weightings in Halo 3 Team Hardcore, and changes some map variants used in the Halo 3 Head to Head sections of social matchmaking options.

Social Games – Snipers Update
In previous updates, we removed grenades and secondary Magnum weapons for Team Snipers in the Social Matchmaking gametype variants. Today, we are making similar updates in the following playlists:
  • Halo 3 Team Snipers
  • Halo 2 Anniversary Team Snipers

Halo 3 Team Hardcore
We have heard a lot of feedback from players wanting to see equal weighting across the board for all maps and modes in the Halo 3 Team Hardcore Playlist. This has been adjusted so that each map and its associated variants are equally weighted now. With this change the maps and game types weighting be as follows:
  • The 6 objective game variants represent 58% weighting
  • The 5 slayer game variants represent 42% weighting

Halo 3 Head to Head
In Head to Head there were some complaints about the “vanilla maps” being used in matchmaking. We are addressing this specifically on two maps to update them to the MLG v8 versions in the Head to Head Social Matchmaking options:
  • MLG Guardian V8
  • MLG Heretic V8

November Feedback Threads
As always, please keep your MCC feedback coming! You can leave any and all feedback in our Multiplayer, Campaign, and Misc/Other posts in the MCC forum here on Halo Waypoint.

Cheers,
