So I’ve been away on holiday for the last week and came back on to Halo 5 and started a game of Team Arena. I expected to do worse than I usually do after being away from my console but found the match pretty terrible and had a 0.5 KD when I have an average of 1.4. I thought I may have just over expected what I’d be able to do in the match but when shown the post match table, saw I was playing against Platinum, Diamond, and Onyx players. I myself was Gold VI in June/July so would have expected Platinum players at the most but had no idea why I was against such skilled players. I played another match and it was the same story so I switched to Slayer. Left the first match after dying 4 times in the first couple of minutes (don’t usually quit) and went to join another match. Again saw Platinum and Onyx players and in the following match was put against a Champion ranked player. Did another couple of matches and there was no change so I just came off.
So yeah, that’s basically the issue I’ve had in two playlists and it’s made the game less fun to play. I mean I like a challenge while playing, but not to that extend obviously. I wondered if anyone else had had the same issue or if it was just me. Thanks for reading this far and hopefully you can shed some light on this.
