I changed teams during Matchmaking? Wha...?

So I was playing a game of Team Heavies on Ragnarok. I was on the Red Team. I decided to betray someone who wasn’t moving so the enemy team wouldn’t get a kill on him. Later, I committed suicide, and when I respawned, I found myself on the Blue Team (it even said “YOU JOINED THE BLUE TEAM”). How the -Yoink- is that possible?

Here’s the film for proof: http://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo4/filebrowser/details/15acaabc-b499-4be7-b956-0238783fdbfc

That is actually amusing to me.

Well… that’s why you don’t betray! Alright, I’ll admit, if somebody hasn’t moved for more than 5 minutes, I’ll smack 'em.

I have never heard of this before. Maybe it’s a new thing with betraying? But then… what happened with the guy whose place you took? Or was Blue team not up to full players…?

That is awesome.

Other than that, I don’t know what to say. In 5,000+ matches, I’ve never had that happen.

Thats totally awesome, but at the same time really annoying.

Brb, reporting you to Bravo for hacking!

…Okay not really. But that might be something you want to drop in this thread. It’s probably just a one off but giving the MM team a head’s up can’t hurt.

Thats pretty hilarious.


“What are you trying to tell me? That I can change teams at will?”

“No, Neo. I’m trying to tell you that when you’re ready, you won’t have to.”
