I’ve enjoyed my Halo 4 experience very much as a whole, but for me matchmaking has many flaws. I’m going going to talk about one that I think people do not talk about much. This flaw is playing with friends that are on a lower skill level than you, and when you play with that friend you get paired up in lobbies which people play at my skill level which is higher than my friend. When this happens my friend does not enjoy the game since he is not even close to the skill level that these people are playing at and is just getting destroyed every game we play.
This is extremely frustrating due to not being able to have fun playing with friends that are on different skill levels. Halo 3 had it right where you had your social and competitve play lists to then be able to play with your friends at your skill level and then have a playlist that can be played with friends that were below your skill level. I’m not saying remake H2 or H3 but at least try and make it fair for people who want to play with others that are on two different skill levels.
Not being able to play with my friends is not what Halo is about. I shouldn’t be not playing with my friends because I don’t want them to stop playing Halo all together since all they do is play people way above their skill level and not enjoying the game.
Please if anyone has any thoughts on this go ahead and share, maybe others are having the same problem.
