> I can now say that I hate Join in Progress and be able to back it up. I’ve been matched up with people and gone into a voting screen like classic Halo maybe ten or fifteen times out of thirtyish games. The rest have all been JIP games, and most of them have been in situations where one team was dramatically outscoring the team I was joining. I joined a BTB IS game where the score was 700-250. They had thirty kills left until the end of the game and were 45 kills ahead of my team. They were a full party, with matching emblems and clan tags. I was a random on a team of randoms. There was no way I was going to stay in there after the match was over to get a fresh match with a voting screen, because it would just result in me being put with a bunch of people who very obviously couldn’t keep up with the enemy team. Welcome to Join in Progress if you don’t have a team to play with. There is no toggle for JIP when searching that I could find.
> Note to self: Don’t play Halo 4 MP alone, ever
I know you can toggle it on/off, but it’s still a problem to those who will use it.
You do bring a very compelling argument. I typically go in alone or in groups of two to three.
And, joining a late game where one team is being smashed would also be detrimental to people with DewXP. They should have done the DewXP the same way they did it with CoD, with minutes and such opposed to actual games.
It’s a good move for social playlists because it inherently keeps teams even and acts as a plausible solution to quitting. It is, however, a bad approach for any sort of ranked playlist, and if CSR is based predominantly on win/loss, then a players trueskill may become completely inaccurate.
Very interested to see how 343i are going incorporate it into trueskill.
ok so the JIP is broken because there was a full clan playing a game together agents a team of randoms and that’s why its bad? Look no system will be perfect JIP has just as much problems as the last system, in COD it can happen you join a game of people who are losing but that’s no reason to get mad about it, just sit and wait for the next match.
Hell play with friends I’m sure you’ll have a MUCH better time with them. as for the DewXP thing isn’t that LIKE the COD system?
