Welcome to the first Community Choice Poll!
In each poll, we'll let you vote on what you'd like to see in Matchmaking. Vote for your top choice, and stop by next week's Bulletin to read which option is the winner. This week, we're kicking things off by asking which Ricochet variant you’d like to see in the Community Forge Ricochet playlist.
In the next Matchmaking update on October 28th, we’ll be premiering the Community Forge Ricochet playlist which will contain the top six finalists from the Halo 4 Ricochet Forge Contest. To augment and vary your experience in this playlist, we’ve decided to add an additional Ricochet game variant to the playlist. To see the below breakdown with images, head over to this week's Bulletin.
Each of the below game types offers slightly different experiences. To help you choose, we’ve further detailed them:Quickochet
- Quickochet is the intersection of Ricochet and Halo: Reach’s “Hot Potato.” Loadouts and overall game settings are identical to Ricochet, but after a certain period of time, the ball will explode at random. Get ready to string together some passes!
- In Shotgun Ricochet, teams must move together as they inch across the map and eliminate each line of defense. Players are equipped with Shotguns, Plasma Grenades, and Thruster Packs. With lots of in-your-face combat, this game type makes Ricochet up close and personal.
- Legendary Ricochet pits teams against one another with preset starting Loadouts in Halo 4’s Legendary experience (Battle Rifle starting weapon, no Armor Ability, Motion Tracker enabled).
Voting will be open for approximately four days. Thanks for participating, and I can't wait to see which game type wins the first Community Choice!
