Host Picking by Lowest SR Rating?

Hi Folks;

Has anyone noticed that ever since CSR was introduced, the host for BT Slayer and Slayer WarGames is nearly always the person with the lowest SR (i.e. the 1 to 130) rating?

Yesterday and today , in all 11 war games I played the lowest SR is always the host. I sort of noticed this in the past, but decided to watch closely for it this week.

It’s almost like 343 is handicapping the selection process for lower ranked people - rather than basing it on connection speed.

And if your not sure who is host in your game, when your in the lobby voting on the game type or waiting for the game to start, press the “X” button. The first name that is in the blue list to your right is the Host, just above your own name.

I’d like to know if other people are seeing the same thing or not.


Spartan Rank has no influence in game host selection.
