Winter season is upon us

Have fun ranking!

Anyone excited to get a fresh start?

I’m hopeful my internet wont tank in my SWAT placement matches again and I get stuck in Silver again =. That was miserable (I generally place Platinum)

Going to try to get some people together so i don’t end up gold or silver in placements only to have to fight my way up to platinum.
winning is hard expecially when you’ve luck like mine

Swat is a mess right now lol I’ve played 4 matches so far and it’s so lopsided. I had a kid that went 1-21 on my team…we lost 50-21…I had 16 kills

That monster arises in almost ANY gamemode. ESPECIALLY in Warzone.
At least they aren’t like the monsters in COD, who go negative AND curse everyone out. Lol

I’m frustrated with seasons and ranking in general. Played doubles this morning before ranks reset and as Silver 6 and Gold 1 we were consistently getting matched with diamonds and Onyx, with predictable results. What’s the point of that? It seems to be getting more common lately. Don’t know if it’s population or what, but matchmaking has gotten pretty bad at placing similar ranks into the same match. After a while grinding rank seems pointless.

Winter is coming… The game of Halo must restart again!

Diamond 1 slayer at the end of last season. Win 7 out of 10 placements and get plat 2. What great incentive to keep playing Halo 5.

It’s so bad lol I was Gold 3 (which isn’t my best but I was slacking) I win 6 out of 10 and now I’m Bronze 4. Thanks, 343.

May the grind for Champion begin!!!

Examples like this, this is why rank resets fail hard. It’s not fun to constantly start over again. It would be like playing RPG or MMO and being told after a month or two your save file gets wiped and you have to start all over again losing everything you did. I wish they just had everybody start at the bottom and work their way up. If someone hits Max rank and they want to start all over again give them that choice don’t force it upon them like the current system.

It’s a joke and makes people not want to play ranked anymore or maybe worse even the game

Well said

Placing low due to bad teams sucks a lot…it makes me not want to play anymore because after you rank moving up takes forfreakingever!

Yeah last night was a slow one lol

I stopped caring about the ranking system when I went from gold1 to bronze one in SWAT. It is my own fault, I match up solo most of the time. Now I just play for the fun!

I play for fun too but the game becomes less fun when I’m just matched with OP kids or kids that just screw around lol

Such a mess

You need to wait a few days before getting your rank. It’s always the same, people that rush to get their ranking at the beginning of a new season often get a lower rank than what they expected.
