After 1 day of gaming, I have countless examples of how I get screwed over by the Join In Progress system! The most recent being a game where my To3 vs another To3 had a wonderful, close, evenly-skilled game up until the score was 420-400 to my team, when the other team gets a join in progress player, and my team did not! We ended up loosing big time!
I do not understand how 343i had thought this system would work, but its incredibly stupid!!!
HAHAHA All I can say is, “I told you so.”
Back when they announced JiP, a lot of us had doubts, saying it would ruin Halo, cause black screens, and ultimately create more trouble than there was to begin with.
Now we’re seeing that. Black screens literally every game. Teams having uneven teams because players join one team but not the other, and players joining games that are either almost finished or drastically different in score.
Remember when 343i said that had something to prevent this? LOL
Just joined a game where opposing team had 4 flag captures and my team 0! This is crazy!!!
