Yes please!! I think H3 would do better than H2 but BTB is long overdue for a run at ranked (imo)
Make BTB Ranked in Halo 3
Yeah you're not limited by your rank in the playlist at all only your party size. And like I said before Social BTB doesn't have any type of restrictions but this would so it would make the game way more fair for solo Q players and players that search in smaller party sizes. And people can't say "well this would affect people with guest then." You can legit make unlimited accounts on your Xbox if one account is gold then they all are. So there really is no excuse as to why 343 can't make this happen.
if so, then that's very interesting.
I would really like to hear 343's take on this.Oops H8Crime wrote:Plz 343?Stoppabl3 wrote:I have no idea why invasion is ranked but h2 isn’t.
Nice! Happy to hear it. Sounds/looks like this suggestion would really work then. :)stephenrg95 wrote:Look at the Invasion leaderboards on MCCStats They have the most highest ranks since the playlist only has partial team matching 1-3 & 4-6 and open 1-50 matching.

With the new backend update to the matchmaking system, rank weightings depending on win/loss/tie seem to be a little different in terms of earning hidden rank EXP/win, skipping ranks, e.g. than before reset. I can confirm I am still moving along, though not all game results are equal depending on level. Rest assured you'll still rank up.
if so, then that's very interesting.
Damn Ketner, that is some dedication. Just like Pope back in the day lol.Samuel Adams wrote:Kid, I am 37, and have been tethered to my phone for internet in the middle of a damn desert since the MCC was released (try playing with 1kms ping and then get back to me). Meanwhile you're on an alt hiding your own stats. Just because I like Grifball doesn't mean I can't do well in other playlists, as evidenced by multiple 50s in H3 (and some high 40s in Squad and RBTB). Take your wannabe elitist -Yoink- somewhere else.Samuel Adams wrote:It's once a month, there's only one "F", and a ton of people give "a yoink" about it. We're here to get Ranked BTB on the map, not -Yoink- on Grifball.
- rotate in more Griffball every week that no one gives a -Yoink- about
>And the point isn't about the rare few on this dying community that like that cancer mode, it's the fact that 343 are "actively" changing things in matchmaking that aren't at all urgent, and that their efforts should clearly be directed towards, hmm, oh I don't know, how about FIXING this game?
Maybe you should find a thread about trying to fix the game instead of bringing up a bunch of off-topic crap in here. Keep it to discussion of RBTB buddy.
More Spectre support is needed, even if it's kind of a dookie vehicle lmaoPIasmaArch3r wrote:I'm keen on the idea, I believe it'd be interesting to try BTB with a competitive mindset, just like Squad Battle (although, as far as I know, it was limited to 6v6) back in the days. I must say this is a very detailed post and the work shows, hopefully the playlists will be added soon.
The maps you selected for Halo 2 Classic seem to fit the gametypes quite well and if anything I'd add District for 1 Flag; whenever I've played that mode on the pointed out map the vehicle combat was really enjoyable and the scenary offers a lot of playstyles and hidden spots. Paired with that, we would get rid of the advantages of one side over the other. I think its layout is good for one-sided Objective. If not, it could have a low weighting for a gametype like KOTH or Territories. On the other hand, Uplift could work if it was limited to Multi Bomb which would make the task of attacking bases succesfully faster and easier, while allowing the different paths and verticality to be used tactically, rather than Multi Flag, though I can see why it would be better for a Social environment.
As for the rewards, I consider them to be interesting enough to keep the playlist fresh in terms of population. However, from my point of view a seasonal point should be awarded after going up 10 ranks instead of 5.
Finally, as a suggestion, I reckon changing the default vehicle to be a Spectre instead of a Warthog in the map Coagulation could enhance teamwork heavily, a key part of competitive. Despite not being truly powerful in terms of damage, the possibilities for strategy and coordination are countless, not to mention its boosting ability is helpful for running over enemies. Not to mention it could be seen as a refreshing inclusion to an already really well polished BTB experience, while offering something new for the playlist that can attract even more population.
