-- so with 4.2 million daily players, and this is one year ago, we don't have a large enough player base?

--- that excuse is now moot. stop using it.





1.2 million players at a time.

that is enough to spread the players between the playlists.


IE: halo 3 had 800,000 players split between

6-7 ranked playlists

5-6 social playlists

double xp playlist on weekends

and customs.


if league implemented ranked 3's, there would be 4 ranked playlists and 5 normal.




TL;DR i really want a solo que 3v3.

you might see it in s3, and idk if you actually played halo 3 but that is a bad example to use... some playlists were left completely in the dust and deserted

I am a 50 in h3....i wouldn't compare it if i hadn't played. i mean come on, think before you type.

when i said...

6-7 ranked playlists

5-6 social playlists

i did NOT count the playlists that were deleted, or you could not find a match in.

these are the playlists that i counted.

RANKED


1 - Lone Wolves

2 - Team Slayer

3 - Team Swat

4 - Team Doubles

5 - MLG

6 - Squad Battle (although at rank 40+ matches were hard to find.)

7 - Team throwback (could find matches in easily first couple months before it got low again)
[at rank 35+ in that playlist you could still find matches when the population got low, i think the lowest i matched with was a 30 something, so they were finding matches, albeit not fair matches]



SOCIAL

1 - Rumble Pit

2 - Skirmish

3 - Slayer

4 - Multi Team

5 - Social big team [took the longest to find a match in]

6 - Mythic


PLAYLISTS


halo - 13 playlists

league - 6 playlists.



PLAYTIME

halo overall - 2 billion + hours played since 2004

league - 1 billion per month since Q3 2012.




in short,

H3 is a perfect example.

no its a bad example because team objective literally got removed because of how inactive it is... the same thing would happen to 3s solo queue

Forget TT solo queue. It should be called: Who can carry with the strongest AD Bruiser? (I hope you banned jax) WCCWTSADBIHYBJ solo queue! Sounds like it could work yes?

Did this guy just brag about being top level in a 6ish year old game?

I played Halo 3 right from release, and many playlists weren't played nearly as often as team deathmatch was.

And thank you, though, for bringing back memories of sitting in my brother's car at 6 AM waiting for the store to open because there's no way I was willing to go to midnight release for a game.

and team objective was removed, but was brought back as team throwback.


small but loyal player base.
