that ONE guy

so i have been playing halo for years now and have always wondered one thing. Why, when searching in matchmaking, do I always find myself finding games that are only filled with 15/16 people or 7/8 people? There is always that one guy the game has trouble finding in order to get the game started.

I starting playing Rumble Pit lately and love it when the game starts at 7/6 without restarting the search or kicking you because it was short on one team.

Population is low…not many random players… the list can go on and on
