What happened to the Double XP weekends?

They seemed to be coming back. And then they stopped coming back :frowning:

343 happened. Guess they just didn’t think it was fair…but I want DXP back badly

343 did have a double XP weekend around 5weeks ago though. Seemed like they were reintroducing them…

I thought all the playlists labeled “Featured” granted bonus XP.

What do you mean they? They had it once to welcome any new players who where playing H5 on Microsoft’s new game pass. They may do another one at some point but seeing how we already have “featured” playlist that give out extra and we have boost and jackpots we can use I don’t see them doing the double XP weekends too often.

There was literally a double XP weekend about 5 weeks ago. You must have missed it. It even mentioned double XP coming back. Someone else must remember?

That is why I said they had it once… The OP is trying to imply they had it more than once.

I don’t know if double xp would bring a lot of people back but I’m sure it would help. I’m just glad I don’t have to sit around for a while to look for a game. I’ve been pretty satisfied with wait times across all game types. Double xp would definitely be a bonus though.

And as me mentioned above, I thought some of the featured playlists offered that? Can anyone else confirm.

There was double XP in the Infection playlist as well awhile back, but I don’t know if it’s still there or not. As for bringing players back, I doubt it will, but it will make the current players happy.

I agree. But even in NYC with a sick connection there are certain times of the day I know I can’t get matched in certain playlist. Notably my favorite, WZ assault is a no go after 3am eastern. Don’t judge me lol

OP… Original Post … as in the first post. Yeah it’s yours but doesn’t change that you were trying to imply they had more than one double XP weekend. They have only had one… And 343 has hinted there would be more. But as I am saying with all the other stuff it doesn’t need to be a regular thing.

The featured playlist pays out more but it’s not double the pay out or anything. But yeah I agree double XP weekends probably won’t bring to many players back IMO.

It might, especially right now with free play days. I think it’s a missed opportunity.
I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t want new/returning players that may bring more revenue.

It’s a shame. Double EXP weekend is a fun tradition. Bring it back with Grifball.

Dude you had me so nervous they removed grif all… I am so glad it’s still there grif is the best!

Needs to be more than Double XP - the XP curve once you get to the later levels in just absurd.

Aren’t they supposed to be coming back now?

Haha, sorry mate. I love grifball, but I think it would be more special as a Double EXP-only type thing like in Halo 3.
