[Locked] MCC Playlist Update: 9/12/2018

OP Postums

Good Afternoon MCC Players,
As we continue to listen to feedback and tune various playlists we want to get upcoming changes in front of everyone, so you can be aware of what we are working on for playlists. Tomorrow, 9/12, we will be doing a behind the scenes update to playlists to adjust weightings and adding in a Halo 2 Classic SWAT playlist. Below is a complete breakdown of what is going on.

Halo 2 Classic SWAT
This week we are adding in our first rotational playlist, Halo 2 Classic SWAT. With the current game variants built for SWAT in the retail build, only the Team Slayer variants will have the BR/Pistol starting weapons. In a future build update we will look to adjust the objective variants to include a pistol secondary starting weapon. We will be keeping a close eye on this social playlist to monitor its health. Here is a complete rundown of the maps and modes in this playlist.
