I love slayer. I also love objective game modes like oddball or CTF. However, I’m not a fan of both being in the same playlist/rotate for these reasons:
- Some people just don’t like objective game modes and will play them like it’s slayer (ignoring the objective and throwing the game for those of us actually trying to win).
- While I like objective game modes, they can get really sweaty/competitive, and sometimes I just wanna relax and play something casual and simple like slayer. Both offer different experiences/tones and it can be frustrating bouncing between the two.
- Those of us who need challenges for a certain game type (like CTF of Slayer) have to wait till our mode is randomly selected between the 4ish modes. Separating slayer from the others would increase the likelihood you’ll get your mode.
I understand 343 is busy, but I feel just giving slayer in arena & BTB its own playlist would not only be a simple fix but one that would massively improve the player base’s morale toward the game.
