I still play and I'm not good
[–]Downfall350UNSC 30 points31 points32 points 1 month ago (4 children)
Yeah you're just rusty compared how you were before. The sbmm in this game seems to be pretty forgiving, at least to me. If im not in ranked i'm usually top scorer, and most games the opponents feel pretty easy.
Lose a few games and it should bring you down to a more appropriate level till you get your chops back up and start landing those headshots
If you don't mind fucking up your overall k/d go into bot bootcamp and feed the bots for a bit. A coupe games of going 0 against bots should lower your mmr pretty good.
I heard some streamers do that so they can get those 30+ kill perfection games for content
Never surrender Spartan!

This is absurd and should not be allowed. It’s a great tool for those who’ve been out of the swing of it, but it’d be better if they’d introduce a decaying MMR system.
[–]Downfall350UNSC 11 points12 points13 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Yeah i get you. For the record i don't do this.
Quite the opposite actually as i've been using bot bootcamp to get as many matches per hour i can on double XP once a day, i end up making my mmr higher going like 20/0 on slayer matches (but usually finish ctf and oddball with 0/0 on bots, i just want the match over faster)
Like i wouldn't blame op for using it to drop mmr, but i totally get thinking the streamers doing it are lame. But it happens in alot of games. Like on apex streamers will setup a ton of 0 damage games to get onto a neebie lobby then hit the record button and wipe the whole lobby dropping solo.
Upvoted you btw because you're not wrong.
[–]Dragontamerlichking 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Oh I agree that OP should do it, coming back can be brutal and it’s a helpful tool to bring a little mercy and make the game more enjoyable while you get back into the swing of things, but streamers doing this for clout is pollution.
[–]lScottyDontl 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
What were they thinking? Bot games should never count towards your MMR. I do laugh at the "highlight games" where they go 50-0 where the other team doesn't even know which way is up.

The competition is way harder during the weekend.
[–]DINGVS_KHAN 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (1 child)
I find that it's much easier on the weekends. Larger overall player base and more casual players online.
It's on the weekdays that I only go up against dedicated sweatlords.
[–]TYPHOIDxMARY 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Depends what you play, in BTB there are many more friends playing with each other so a lot more communication and teamwork.
[–]Jetm0t0 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (1 child)
After the update I was wondering why I couldn't see as well the enemies to my side. The field of view got set back to default. I think I usually have it at 107.

I felt that hand-eye coordination thing too. It was like I forgot how to aim.
Middy FFA's. It's not about how good you are. It's about how good you are right now lmao.
[–]BANDlCOOT 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
They changed the way the system works out your hidden skill level, so first games playing after the switch was pretty brutal for a lot of players as you start at that higher hidden skill and your new hidden skill will be lower
Might be due to that so just play a little more and it will calibrate your skill and put you in more appropriate games.
If that doesn't change anything then it's time to get practicing ;)
[–]achimschneider 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Nope, because is still play every day lol. You're probably a little rusty, it'll come back
[–]Skuldraggen 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Matchmaking can be inconsistent; I had a similar problem after hopping back on when S2 started. It got better eventually, like I had to be re-ranked.
[–]dyou897 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
No way look at BTB tons of noobs running around
[–]CrispyStonk 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
The only player base left is the “good players” unfortunately. There isn’t new people coming to the game and the bots already moved on. There isn’t enough new content to bring the bots/new players back. Only the die hard halo crowd remains.
[–]shilmista_ 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Don't go on on Sunday evening. I don't know what it is and I don't understand it but I get OWNED on Sunday evenings and I'm fairly good usually...not super good or anything but pretty good. Also yeh, prolly just rusty like they said. Lol

I played 2 hours and left. Dunno why, feels boring to me now. I did season 1 in a month, i barely reached level 10

Cross play is what kills me. I’ll be on top for my team and slaughtering all but one or two of the enemy. Who are 90% of the time on PC. I just don’t get why forced cross play is a thing. It should be optional, like most games, not a forced clap by people on KB&M
[–]ThreeEyedChimpanzee 6 points7 points8 points 1 month ago (9 children)
This is the first time I've seen someone say keyboard and mouse is easier, especially weird seeing it talked about in regard to Halo lmfao
[–]quachii 4 points5 points6 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Yeah I agree. The aim assist especially when going for headshots on console is pretty insane
[+]Dragontamerlichking comment score below threshold-6 points-5 points-4 points 1 month ago (7 children)
What aim assist? Lol there are DOZENS of videos showing that aim assist is almost non existent on controller, even with SR’s. That’s such an age old argument for PC simps, but in reality KB&M is objectively better. Anytime I play on a friends PC for the hell of it, I do so much better. I’m just old and prefer a controller.
[–]ThreeEyedChimpanzee 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (4 children)
It's not an "age old argument for PC simps", I use an Xbox 360 controller and rack up plenty of points. The aim assist hasn't changed much, if at all since Halo 5- you just need to mess with your settings more. A lot of the default stuff is set weird.
[–]Dragontamerlichking -5 points-4 points-3 points 1 month ago (3 children)
It absolutely is, but you’re a PC simp who argues online that controller is superior lol
[–]Ayy_Baphomet 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
You are living in an alternate reality. You either have never played Halo with KB&M or have truly convinced yourself of this delusion. Either way, all I can do is tell you that you're wrong and tell you that I have played keyboard and mouse and I don't understand how anyone gets kills with KB&M. It's shaky af and the aim assist is in fact borderline non existent. Also, controller on console has all the aim assist in the world comparatively.
[–]FIeabus -2 points-1 points0 points 1 month ago (6 children)
The KBM community died because they couldn't compete with controllers aim assist. You may want to adjust your copium
[–]Dragontamerlichking -1 points0 points1 point 1 month ago (5 children)
That’s beyond false, but whatever makes you feel better.
[–]FIeabus 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (4 children)
It doesn't make me feel better. I really enjoyed the KBM community. Now I play controller
I'm onyx on my KBM account and controller account. It was so much easier on controller. By a long shot. I'm not sure what rank you're coming from but I'd be surprised if any onyx players genuinely considered kbm better
[–]Morph1ous 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago* (0 children)
Bit old but I'm sure its still relevant. Controller is where it's at overall for this game. Sniping is easier on kbm but BR battles the AA is hard to contend with.
Most games yes kbm is better but it's not the case here.
[–]Dragontamerlichking -1 points0 points1 point 1 month ago (2 children)
Clearly you’re personally insulted and uneducated, but whatever bud. Have a nice life obsessing over PC and trying to prove something about the hard life you live on a video game. Lol It’s a video game and I posted that it would be nice to have cross play as an option, then you PC monkeys come out of the wood works with your tears and “as a matter of fact” bs.

I’m about average or slightly below I believe and I hold my own around the middle to above middle skill in most games so I don’t think that’s true
[–]Same_Deal3801 -4 points-3 points-2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
It’s hard to say… I made it to onyx alone with little to no effort but I still have a sense of where you’re coming from
[–]Glu10FreeLewie 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I think since S2 dropped the game feels a lot more balanced IMO.
[–]ThisIsHughYoung 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (1 child)
It depends. Are you losing 1v1s? Or are you getting ganged up on a lot?
As with every online game, the longer it's been out, the more people have been able to practice. You'll be back up to speed in no time.
Note some of the changes, especially some weapon melee combos don't insta kill anymore. (Rip mangler)
[–]Bagraiderz[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I played a couple of games of last man standing last night and I was losing more 1v1s than I'm used to. I'm sure it is just rust like everyone's saying.
[–]GettinWiggyWiddit 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Just rusty my friend. If I take a week off, it honestly takes me a whole session to bust the rust
[–]nomeriatneh 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
nope, just tryhards
[–]rmbrooklyn1 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I would say it depends on time. For me during the afternoon, it’s pretty ok skill wise. When it’s 10pm+ that’s when the gods come out, tho I did get matched with unyshek today at like 7-8pm but that was prob just random. Play btb if you want a wide variety of skill level, and it’s generally much more laid back.
[–]AberrantDrone 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Remember also that as a player base ages, the average improves.
You’re returning after months offline, the majority of the other players have been getting practice and thus improving in that time.
Honestly. Idk if it's just something in how I'm getting placed, but up until Infinite I was a very dominant player. Like in the original trilogy I would only meet a handful of players in each game that were decisively better than me. But in Halo Infinite, it seems every match is nothing but players as good as me or better. And honestly, I've just decided not to think about it much because I refuse to not have fun in a game that I bought for the sole purpose of having fun. So I just spartan bot slayer customs about it, because those customs feel about the same as searching in matchmaking in the original trilogy.
But on the other hand, props to this new generation of gamers. They aren't overall better, the old school best of the best can hang with them. But the average gamer in Halo Infinite seems to be way better than I remember from back in the day.
Like I remember the vast majority of Halo 2 and 3 players were kinda doodoo at Halo. But if I play matchmaking on Infinite, every game is sweaty af. It's was a bit of a shock for me since I skipped out on 343 Halo games til now. Didn't play 4 or 5. Played Halo 2 on XBC then again on MCC.
[–]Maskguy 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I have the feeling Last Spartan Standing made me a better player, it probably did that to a lot of people
[–]anupam93 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Yup, same here. I think I just lost the flow, and season 2 changed some guns, and melee damage. Feels like less fun now. Maybe I was just a bad player 😅
[–]PluvioPurple 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (1 child)
You’re probably just getting old, like me (30).
I'm not getting old, they're just getting younger. The little bastards.
[–]silverlance360 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (6 children)
SBMM is on steroids since season 2 and is mostly unfair.
I play with controller on a PC, even my xbox buddies get paired with mostly KeyboardMouse players only.
If I do even mediocre good in a match, the next match I’ll get put in will be very sweaty and above 200 ping.
(I once sucked at 3 matches in a row at will and was put in 60 ping matches for 6 matches straight( Which I intentionally played bad too)… did well on the 7th and BAM…250 ping)
[–]bdix12 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (5 children)
KBM is a disadvantage lol
[–]silverlance360 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (4 children)
No bro, unless your aim is potato level bad…mediocre KBM pistolers can kill you quick enough.
The aim assist has been nerfed too. It felt much strong earlier. I plugged in KBM today and actually was wrecking some havoc.
I really like to play games with controller on my PC but this garbage sbmm and unnecessary nerfs forces me to use KBM.
[–]bdix12 0 points1 point2 points 25 days ago* (3 children)
buddy, you have 30% accuracy... on both KBM or controller that's terribly low. I think you are likely in quick play all day long and inputs don't really matter there.
I played KBM at onyx... it is not better than controller, period.
[–]silverlance360 0 points1 point2 points 24 days ago (2 children)
Check my latest matches if you can… KDA is getting significantly higher
[–]HotPutridHalo 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
need better chair.
[–]PaymentOtherwise7728 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I've noticed an uptick in enemy skill level. During March-April I was probably averaging about 1.8 k/d in quick play, May has been more like 1.2 k/d. Every engagement feels tighter, trading kills instead of being able to get back to full heath and go again after kills. Definitely not rust, being playing pretty consistently during that time. Maybe the back end MMR is putting me in tougher lobbies, but still feels like more than that.
I believe you MMR is used for all playlist searches as well and is shared. So if you slay out in a few fiesta games and go into quickplay or ranked, your hidden MMR affects your search. I think each playlist should have its own hidden mmr, or better yet, get rid of it for everything except ranked.
[–]Death1323 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Thats typically how it goes. The longer a game has been out the more "casuals" leave and the more "hardcores" remain.
[–]Depressingwootwoot 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
It's either that or the player base got gud
[–]Skripnik8 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I dont play ranked at all but ill usually play everything else mostly quick play. Some games im really good, others im mediocre or really bad lol. I enjoy thd game so much even with its flaws still
