>EDIT< MONITOR MOVED THREAD TO MATCHMAKING (A LESS POPULATED SECTION WITH MUCH LESS DISCUSSION INVOLVED) WITHOUT ANY REASON/CLARIFICATION WHY. NOTE THAT IT STATES "DISCUSS ALL THINGS HALO 4" UNDER THE HALO 4 FORUM TOPIC"
>EDIT2< I Attempted to appeal to move it back. My appeal = Under the Halo 4 topic it states "Discuss all things Halo 4." For this reason my thread shouldn't have been forced into the matchmaking topic. If anything it should have been optimal. In addition the thread was in place for over a month now. Their are no rules regarding that you cannot have matchmaking threads in the Halo 4 topic. The monitor that moved the post stated it was for organization purposes. Well this is not a real or official reason to reject moving it back when I asked because their are no rules to justify it. I don't mind them moving threads to the best location but if I ask to move it back and their aren't any rules against it then thats not fair. A question that justifies this topic is "What would the thread have to include to get moved to the Halo 4 topic"
Appeal got rejected quote - "Ranks are a Matchmaking-only feature, and the topic fits in Matchmaking as per the guidelines in the sticky I linked you to."Guidelines
>EDIT3< 1/23/13 - It is confirmed that CSR will ONLY be visible on Halo waypoint and expected to launch in April Source. In addition bs angel's reason to why CSR is not visible in game is "We are focused on creating a seamless companion for pro and expert players without making a highly visible attractive nuisance for casual abusers and cheats."

ATTENTION COMMUNITY 343's ANNOUNCEMENT IS A FINELY FAILED HALFLY DONE ATTEMPT TO APPEASE THE COMPETITIVE COMMUNITY.This 1-50 343 promised us is ONLY
web based. Basically only seen on Halo waypoint. This is the same thing they did in Reach which didn't solve anything. Their will NEVER be a number 1-50 to show your skill in game. THIS WILL ONLY BE SEEN ON HALO WAYPOINT. This will NOT CHANGE unless we FIGHT for a FULL SKILLED ranking system.
This needs to EFFECT IN GAME RANK
like Halo 3 for players to have an Incentive
to go for high skill otherwise people will just get maxed rank with XP. Bungie perfectly created a max xp limit on each separate rank requiring them to go for high skill.Thanks
of this thread are very appreciated IMPORTANT

I was very happy and impressed by 343 Industries until I read the Announcement source carefully. 343i was very vague about this intentionally to fool the competitive community, What a lowball deceptive attempt. SourceTO 343 Industries:
Why are you against a with a full skilled ranking system? Nothing is perfect which must be the reason you don't want to implement it into the game but EXACTLY
explains the effect of having it in game with more players having incentive to play. I assure you its better than what it is now and what it was before. Their is more good in having it implemented in game than their is negative. This is the reason Halo 3 / 2 Lasted so long. People wanted to win, they were motivated, the reason everyone had their microphones in. Remember a game ending and saying good game or getting messages. This doesn't happen in Halo 4. Im truthfully saying that this was the best system and I didn't even achieve a 50! Read all of the responses to this thread, barely anyone disagrees and this is just a small portion that are active on the forums. And the people that do disagree have no valid persuasive points that couldn't be solved, with the solutions included in this thread. 343i, I know Microsoft told you to make the game like call of duty to make it more popular, adding this will, the progression system does NOT flow with Halo it never will. But note if this is added their is still much more you need to improve. I will not list them in this simply because this is a specific thread but a video above will. The most important aspect is that you need to communicate with you're fan base. Their are so many popular threads including one that broke a record on halo waypoint, but you have yet to respond to them. This is not Halo's formula, I waited through Halo Reach for a Ranking system TU, It never came. Will it be the same for Halo 4?Halo is a team game. The goal should be to win, NOT to be Independent.To the Casual player community
( People who don't mind or care)
What some of you fail to realize is that the competitive community will keep the game alive. They will play the game long after the release date. I mean, just look at Halo 2 for an example. The only way you could get them off that was by shutting down the XBL compatibility for it. And even though that's gone, I bet people still have Halo 2 LAN parties. Heck, people still have Halo Combat Evolved LAN parties. The point I'm trying to make is that if you satisfy the competitive players then you'll have a long lasting game. Both sets of players are important, and both can be pleased
.Response to the Boosting/Cheating Issue
343i switches the trueskill system with a progression system. The one we have in Halo 4 actually allows us to unlock better weapons and equipment. There is a much higher incentive to cheat. And what happens to cheaters? They're rewarded with all this nice stuff that nobody else has access to. They'll play a few games feeling like a boss and then get banned. But such great ownage on their behalf will cause them to want to circumvent justice to be able to do it all again. I would take booster for a full skill ranking system any day and the majority agree with me. Boosting has been a bigger issue in Halo 4 than any other Halo game. Account Selling Solution
