Does anyone remember the Halo 5 days when this ELO style ranking system was released around year 2 and everyone was complaining that it wasn’t a good system?
343i would respond with the fact that the low population played a role in the system not working to its best ability.
Now with cross play enabled and a higher player base; the same complaints 5 got with the ranking system is still present in infinite where pro players has expressed their distaste for the system.
I would love to engage in conversation with those very same people that defended that system.
This is why ranking should always be based on W/L ONLY with a slight edge to the MVP player on the team. Individual ranking system serves no purpose in team focused playlists.
