Top priorities for the next major update should be:
- More playlists:
Ranked needs AT MINIMUM:
4v4 Attrition (3 rounds to win, 2 second revive timers)
Shottys and Snipers/Shock Rifles and Snipers
Ranked needs fixing. Hidden stats should not have any effect on ranks. It should be an unbiased skill rating. BOT MATCHES SHOULD HAVE NO EFFECT AT ALL ON RANKED. You should simply gain points when you win, lose points when you lose. THATS IT. Halo 5s had a few of its own problems but it was definitely superior to this system. So start back with Halo 5s system, then make small improvements over time.
Customs browser would be a massive step forward. Adds so much replayability.
Any form of XP progression system would be a good incentive to keep playing. Could be Halo 5s Spartan Rank 152, could be Halo Reachs system, could be Halo 3s. Really doesn’t matter that much, just do something to be able to show progression.
Service Records should be a high priority to get into the game ASAP. They help give the game meaning as you can show your stats, ranks, etc. They need to come back and be easily viewable in game.
These are the immediate changes which they havent mentioned which imo need the most attention. New maps, more modes, customisation fixes, etc. can come later. We just need something meaningful to get the game in a decent spot to be able to hold out for season 2 and beyond.
