Matchmaking. How does it work?

I have a friend I typically play Halo games with and he’s not as good as I am, ok. In previous games, playing together, we’d get a mixed bag of players so we’d be able to have plenty of close games.

Now, in Infinite, we only get people around my rank and he’s not able to play against them, at all. He’s essentially a passenger and he’s not able to enjoy his games with me any longer. Nobody wins.

Anybody know if this has changed from MCC and 5 or have been just been unlucky lately?
