Halo: The Master Chief Collection Sees Playlists Cut-down in Order To Make Matchmaking Easy

Those of you who have bought Halo: The Master Chief Collection and have start to play the multiplayer would know by now that the matchmaking is quite deplorable, so much so that players would wait literally for hours hoping to get matched with other players, with no results. However the developers has heard their pleas and issued an update which would remove several playlists which in turn would cut down on the waiting time.

Team Hardcore, Rumble Pit, Halo 4 and SWAT (rotational) are the few playlists that have been cut. 343 Industries had this to say: “This concentrated playlist layout will allow players to get into matches faster, and improve overall match times. While we anticipate that concentrating our players into fewer playlists will have an effect on match times, it will not solve all Matchmaking issues. We are currently investigating CUs and server side tweaks over the next week to address matchmaking issues.”

Players can look forward to a content update which will be released tomorrow, which will fix scoring and states, as well as a minor fix for team skill matching. However if you cannot wait, then the developers recommend that you quit and try again if you are stuck in matchmaking for more than five minutes.

    I’m not quite sure what kind of half wit would wait an hour for match making but…well wow that person is a moron lol.

    Yesterday before they cut down the number of playlists I got into a match in about 30 seconds. After the new playlists the wait was about 30 seconds.

    The issue is mainly that there are so many options across over 100 maps it splits the player base so its hard to find a game that’s full at certain times of day. By lowering the number of active modes in the hopper they have made it easier to find a game quickly. The more people.playing the less of an issue it is. In fact it’s really only an issue outside slayer or team slayer. Tons of people are playing those modes. It will take time for people to figure out what all the options mean and how they effect match making. The game is just massive in terms of mp choices.
