The winter update was fantastic BUT one thing Im not enjoying about the update is that it feels like a lot of options and variety were lost in matchmaking (social and ranked) due to playlists becoming rotational. Since we likely wont have a match composer any time soon, here is (in my opinion) how the playlists could be setup better right now:
Quickplay (4v4) - Slayer, KOTH, Attrition, Strongholds, Oddball, CTF, Land Grab.
Team Slayer (4v4) - Slayer, BR Slayer
Tactical Slayer (4v4)
Social Slayer (4v4) - Fiesta, Team Snipers (S7s Only), Ninja Slayer, Kong Slayer, Rock N Repulsors
Rumble Pit (8 Player FFA) - Slayer, Ninja Slayer, Vampireball, Fiesta, Snipers (S7s Only), Rock N Repulsors, Escalation Slayer (Gun Game), One in the Chamber (Tactical Slayer. Spawn/Respawn with only one bullet. Kills generate a bullet).
Social Doubles (2v2) - Slayer, Fiesta, Team Snipers (S7s Only), CTF, Oddball, Dodgeball.
Big Team Battle (12v12) - Slayer, Stockpile, Total Control, CTF.
Weekly Rotational Playlist - Joint Ops, Last Spartan Standing, Team Snipers (S7s Only), Infection, Grifball, Escalation Slayer, etc.
Weekly Forge Playlist
Arena (4v4) - Oddball, CTF, Slayer, Strongholds
Lone Wolves (6 Player FFA) - Slayer
Doubles (2v2) - Oddball, CTF, Slayer
Rotational Playlist - 4v4 Survivors, 2v2 Dodgeball, 4v4 Snipers (S7s Only), FFA Snipers (S7s Only), 4v4 Tactical Slayer, etc.
