Why was rank doubles removed?

Ranked doubles was like the only mode I have enjoyed playing on this game in months. Why was it removed?

They knew how much you enjoyed playing Peave99 and specifically took the game mode away because of how much you specifically liked it.

Sorry Peave99, nothing personal.

reality is unless there is a post about it, we will have no idea

Okay let me ask it more broadly, why would you remove a game type from a game that has been a stapple of the franchise and its online community since it launched in 2004?

Its always been one of the most popular game types. Im trying to understand why 343 makes such random choices.

Yes, I think they tweeted that peave99 was playing it too much and neglecting the other playlists so it had to go

Playlists working as intended.

Maybe they are polishing it for you specifically to go back into your playlist menu all shiny and upgraded?

Data, they are probably optimising network usage, like if for some reason 2 man ranked (that was just added) was taken out, what would other people prefer to play or would they stop playing all together etc. etc.

This might help explain some stuff:

Like wulfy said, it was removed by accident:

I can see the playlist right now currently. Ranked Doubles is still in the game fellow Spartan.

Accidental, but it does need fixing to be honest.

Probably cus their UI can’t handle it.

They are running the UI with Some software the got from Five below…so you now sacrifices had to be made I guess

I heard it was removed by accident, is that the case?

Unsure if this is outdated, but I can still play ranked doubles. Might be an issue on your end.

They fixed it yesterday.
