Big Team Battle Player Count

How many players will big team battle have now? I would like to see something large like 16v16 or more!

I believe it’s 12v12 now.

^ is right, its 12 v 12. Any higher and the number actually starts tp become too chaotic and messy for halos gameplay

Like the other users have stated, it’s 12v12. Guess we’ll have to stick to Battlefield and CoD Warzone for the bigger lobbies.

12 v 12 seems like a good fit. I’ve been playing some MCC with the Halo 4 ranked mode called Squad Battle which is 6 v 6. On Ragnarok the game feels a little bit empty at times even on a full lobby so 12 v 12 should be the perfect amount of chaos. I’m sure they may eventually try even bigger modes with more players down the line because the technology is surely capable of it.

Basically WZ v2 :frowning:

Their quote from the overview video was along the lines of creating a beautiful slice of sci-fi chaos.

12 v 12 on the right size maps with lots of vehicles sounds perfect.

Not sure why people want huge numbers. You just end up being spread out over a larger map… creating a disconnect between you and your mates. And it’s hard enough getting 8 players on the same page in terms of game-play… let alone more.

Instead of more players I want more vehicles, bigger weapons, and more explosions.

12v12 is still pretty huge for Halo tbf.

Not really. It’s been the staple in Halo 5 Warzone for the best part of a decade. If 343i’s max is 12v12 that’s ok, but they’re missing an opportunity imo. Players who want that will go to other titles for their fix. I think we’ll see a bigger player count in Halo in due course.

Yeah and the only good thing about Warzone was Firefight.

Your opinion my friend. Others will say different. And Firefight is PvE, that’s an entirely different experience.

This.
In BTB you want your personal actions and teamwork to matter. Going bigger nullifies the impact of the right use of power weapons and vehicles.
I think warzone had the right goal of giving players the opportunity to have their own control of the sandbox to match their play style and be able to counter an opponents, the REQ monetisation just gives it a bitter taste. Still hoping that some aspects from there find their way in a BTB playlist.

8 player Firefight is superior to 4 player, I can tell you that much already.

And 12 VS 12 without Warden Eternal being thirsted by every nerd with his mums credit card and the 300 Nornfangs he bought will be a welcome change.

Oh and no more of The Answer or any of the other questionably balanced REQ weapons.

I would say otherwise. I despise firefight and I can tell you that I have zero interest in both 4 and 8 player. But like you, that is only my opinion and we’re off topic. The thread is about btb player count, I’ll agree a 12v12 btb is better than warzone with reqs but I would like more, 16v16 or 24v24 would be excellent options in my opinion. I think we’ll see it happen too.

Absolute nonsense. People who say this are just apologists. There is no reason why the player count couldn’t be higher so long as the maps are large enough to accommodate them. Besides, ‘higher player count’ doesn’t have to mean 64+…a lot of people seem to be confused about that. 32 players for example is only a marginal step above 24, so it would certainly be feasible if 343 wanted it to happen.

Exactly how is 6 years ‘the best part of a decade’??

Anyway, hopefully we do see the player count increased to something like 16v16, I think I have would be perfect. The only concern is the limitations of the older consoles, especially considering that crossplay is a thing.

You should open a dictionary, it would do you some good. They’re apologists because they’re arguing against higher player counts claiming it’s ‘too chaotic’ for Halo, when 1. we’ve literally had higher player counts on PC and it’s been great 2. The developers themselves are exploring that very possibility in MCC. Some people are just so wilfully ignorant that they’ll abandon all sense with their arguments.

Because it is. It’s over half, the most of, the biggest part of etc…

And yes, hopfully we will see increased player counts. The older consoles are not an issue either, Battlefield is 32v32 and 64v64 on them, I don’t see 24v24 or 16v16 being an issue in Halo.
