Simply put social isn’t social. According to the community update they loosened the skill restrictions, but the only change I’ve noticed is that it took about 5 games more than usual to start matching you against players with a similar or higher hidden rank and the playlist completely loses its appeal. Added to this the lack of player/party restrictions that match a team of randoms v a team of 3/4/5 and it might as well be team slayer in disguise.
Seriously just do one with these pathetic and sly hidden ranks and give us an actual social playlist like in Halo 3. I swear the games used to be so much laid back and balanced back then. Just get this right for once because these attempts at social are extremely lame and tiresome now.
