Really Matchmaking? Really?

By and large, the Halo 4 matchmaking system seems to work pretty well. When I play with people who are really good, I feel that on average games are harder; the same thing goes the other way when people on my team aren't as good.

Sometimes... sometimes it doesn't make much sense at all - I guess no algorithm is perfect, right?

Oddball Perfection

This one is short and sweet. I'll let it speak for itself.

Ring Around The Complex

Some people really hate Complex, and even more for objective gametypes. It's certainly a trick to catch that ball-runner once he's off and around the bend... For objective slayers like us, it's very amusing.

I'm still working on refining the recording/rendering quality. This one was recorded at 720p, 5000kpbs, and rendered in AVCHD 720p. Somehow the Youtube version lacks a 720p selection, so I'll have to keep tinkering. Regardless, here it is!

Back In The Saddle Once More

We're back.

Halo 4 hit the shelves and we've hit the trenches with a vengeance, finding the gameplay the most rewarding since the title-which-will-be-forever-missed Halo 2. Given it's quality, I have acquired a capture card, which shall allow me to record and serve up gameplay to you in HD quality.

Today I bring to you an initial offering - it is certainly not my best, but has some fun moments. I hope you'll enjoy :)

Playlist/Gametype: Infinity Team Slayer
HTR Level : 37
Map: Haven
Our Team: Tol Eressea, 3 SRGs (seriously random guys)
Their Team: Who knows?
Mood: <3 Railgun
Game Length: 7min

It feels good to be back. I expect that Ered will either buy a capture card or deliver games via fileshare for me to record and upload. We'll see how it goes!
