Halo 5: Guardians February Season Update Adds Matchmaking Updates

Moving into February many games are receiving updates, this includes Halo 5: Guardians. With a view on improving matchmaking a few changes will be coming to the game.

This has been announced by 343 Industries today when they revealed that they will be looking to make improvements that will affect how ranking impacts matchmaking search time for some players. It appears that some skill values make it difficult for some players to find matches. There have been changes to find improvements in these areas.

On Onyx and Champions, they also revealed they have been listening to feedback from the community:

“Based on feedback from the community, we are making some tweaks to the Onyx and Champion CSR. Players noticed that it was possible to place into Champion (at least temporarily) simply by being the first 200 people in Onyx to complete their placement matches in a season. We are doing two things to increase the competitiveness for Champions. First, the new minimum CSR to earn a Champion rank will be 1800 rather than 1500. Additionally, we’ve placed a cap on the highest CSR you can earn after your placement matches at 1700. These changes will make Champions a more elite group and reward players that prove they’re amongst the top in the world. “

These changes should come into effect today (February 1) and will be done by service side updates. No downloads will be required.

Hopefully these updates will improve matchmaking for everybody. If not, I’m sure there will be much more feedback about how the improvements didn’t work.
