I have grinded A LOT of Halo Infinite. Over 500 games. I love it overall. I know most people have discussed their displeasure with the in-game store and the progression, but the biggest issue with the game to me is the Skill Based Matchmaking system that plagues the game. I understand the need to match players with others of similar skill. But it has destroyed the fun of just hopping on and playing some casual games.
I think the ranked playlist SBMM needs work as well (I’ll leave that topic for someone else to cover), but when I play that at least I EXPECT a hardcore set of games. But Quick Play for me has become the ultimate sweat-fest Every. Single. Game. What makes this whole situation worse is that whenever I play with friends who don’t play as much as I do, they have to suffer through these games too. It is just an all-around unfun time.
PLEASE relax the SBMM system for social playlists. I want to play this game more (even if my Battle Pass is complete). I haven’t considered creating an alt-account in years, but if it’s the only way to play with friends, I guess I may have to. But if every game I load into is like a tournament matchup, I will just have to play more of other games instead of Infinite.
Thanks for the read.
