-CTF
-KoTH
-Team Regicide
-SWAT

You can't suck, either.

Yeah, bolt shot pisses me off. When you bring good people down to no shields and chase them around a corner for a beat down kill and they 360 and bolt shot your face off. That **** pisses me off. But I can't complain, I do the same ****.

1. The number next to your name is your exp based rank (Think CoD), has nothing to do with your true skill rank. Your true skill rank is invisible. They are tweaking the system as to avoid anyone trying to cheat the system. It is a 1-50 ranking system (Think H3 1-50 NOT H2). You are being matched up against those with a similar true skill rank. They will release the true skill rank in January. H2 Ranking system is superior IMO because in order to rank up you had to win 3-4 games in a row. If you lose 3-4 you rank down. The H3/H4 ranking system brings in a TON of other variables. w/l, k/d... And after a while if you stop winning you get "level locked" so that you consistently get matched up against people with your skill level. Unless you win 10+ games in a row you won't get past that level 46 and get your 50... Another thing is people took advantage of the w/l ratio and boosted accounts (like I did). I quit out of 350 plus games on H3 and although it didn't show it in game it said I had -350 on bungie... If I played with a brand new account with this boosting account in double team, the games ranking system would feel bad for you and rank you up 10x as fast. I would get level 50's in under 30 games. Undefeated too because you go straight from level 47 to 50 and all of the "hard" kids are level 49. I'd sell these accounts for 'bout $100 then eventually $50 and then finally $25 a pop once everyone got there 50's...

2. Yeah the sprinting is bull****. I think they did this to close skill gap. Example: I sprint and come to a dead stop I can't immediately turn around and start firing without my enemy expecting it. This delay is so that as soon as I stop sprinting my foe has that extra millisecond to bring his cross hairs to my body.

3. I have noticed the consistent delay, not necessarily lag. But it might just be my uncle is currently staying with us and is ALWAYS running is ****ing MAC on top of the 3 other computers on the network. I am not sure, either way it's frustrating as hell. It's not even that bad, just bad enough to piss me off. I will out BR/DMR people with no shields but I won't make 8 out of 8 headshots w/ a sniper...

Yes the lag and delays I am getting two.



Wish I liked MD. Would love to get some double XP.
thats because those people are low level in that playlist because the playlist is/was new. give it a few days and you'll start matching people equal to you for the most part

I agree with you. the halo 2 ranking system was addictingly ruthless. So many games going from the cool looking 23, to the intimidating yet lackluster 22..to finally peaking and getting 24 and 25 before they made ranking easier to go up.

I really hope that the infinity style of the game stays in the social slayer **** that is available now, or will literally be its own ranked playlist seperate from the classic respawn time settings.

Why? Because i cant ****ing drop the habit of moving across map in slayer games when my shields are low some times. and there is no "glory walk" in this game when 3-4 of the other team has died and are sitting with respawn timers. Even 2-3 second respawn timers would help drastically

edit- PS you are pretty good, top 35% on H4, but your stats look like you play by yourself alot now, you can add me if you want to, i wont be on this weekend but a lot through mid january

top 35%? really? I would think I was better, where do you go to track this? If I knew you could I would be trying harder and definitely stop quitting out of games. And I've been playing by myself a lot recently (as in this past week) because of finals... And I'm trying to get my k/d back up past 2.0...

Halotracker would be my guess.

And ugh that 2.0 K/D. Mine just barely dipped below 2.0, but I only need a few more good games to get it back above.

After the game had just come out, I had a 3.0 which means I cared waaaaay too much when I died. My friends convinced me to play straight flood just to destroy it so I couldn't care anymore, but all it did was kill my K/D and make me more angry =(

Dude..halo 2's ranking system logic was win 10, go up a level, lose a game and fall back 2 levels. So much rage was put into my childhood because of that game haha

hahah, it felt like that huh? it was usually 3/4 game difference that made rank down or up... Some times though if you won like 6 games and didn't rank up it would bump you up 2 or more... Same with losing games, if you lost 4 and didn't rank down 1 level and lost 5/6 games you would rank down 2 levels... Halo 2 was DEFINITELY the best game in the series. halo 2 forever.

I personally like Halo 2 the best, but Halo 4 has incorporated some new features that make the game more complex and technical. Which is good because it keeps the game interested as compared to the same old boring stuff that can get repetitive in a game. Hopefully the next Halo will be even better, lol.

yea halotracker dot com

But yea. i didnt discover it until last week. it pissed me off because i would have understood a lot more things in the beginning in regards to matchmaking.


My friends would text me and be like "dood i just went 18-1 last game and 20-3 this game" and ill be like...no way im that bad at this game and was like a 1.5 the first few weeks. Then i realized i am like 3% so i only play tryhards that probably work stock at walmart for a living.

its a win/lose kind of. because my total K/D is 1.75, but H4 doesnt tell the whole story, but that site does. 1.75 vs good people is pretty respectable. it eased my mind on the whole KD thing and i just worry about winning and playing with others that want to win

edit- ill be on today for the first time in like 4 days lol
