Playlist Changes!

Bungie gives us details about the upcoming playlist changes. I’m sure you guys will be happy with these: no more backwash in matchmaking (yay!), no more team snipers in other playlists, no more dorky rumble armory, rumble hardcore instead, and tons more. Check it out at this forum post on Thanks to jBurton90 for the heads up!

    yay 1st post lol

    ontopic now, all of this sounds good

  2. KIMO23 says:

    yeah, except no team snipers in team hardcore :(

  3. Lord hobo says:

    y that bad thats what team snipers is for

  4. KIMO23 says:

    because you had a sniper and a BR. my two favprite weapons.

  5. KIMO23 says:

    HA! i just read about Rumble Harcore – they’re gunna have the occasional rumble snipers!!!

    Rumble Hardcore:

    think Rumble Pit with Battle Rifles, Carbines, and the occasional sniper rifle. Motion sensors will be ON for most, but not all game types in this list. Remember, these aren’t team games, so nobody can watch your back except you. In team games, we usually turn it off. In free for all, that prevents the game from turning into a sneaky melee-festival.

    I will miss Backwash because I loved that map.

  8. immortalthree says:

    i always lagged horribly on backwash….. thanks bungie!

  9. jburton90 says:

    Just to let you guys know, not all of Backwash will be removed so don’t give you hopes up. Plus their still testing so some might stay, some will go.

  10. Cr4zyKiller says:

    YESS no more Backwash…. but im really bummed about snipers games…. i usually have ppl over and we USED to play Team Snipers…. no all we can do is cook up a custom game if we wanna play snipers….

  11. foomojive says:

    No man you can still play team snipers. They just won’t include sniper games in other matchmade games as much.

  12. Eeevan says:

    with Ra.D.A.R. it wouldnt be hardcore

  13. jburton90 says:

    Its hardcore because of the BR starts, and they said that the radar is in there because of the fact that you don’t have a team mate watchin your back, so you have to watch your own.

    I like all of the changes that happened to be posted in this post, except for the fact that I actually liked backwash a bit. I don’t really like the fact that the number of kills in 6v6 games is being changed to 100 instead of 50 and that objective rumble pit games are being removed entirely. I also don’t like the removal of foundation in a few places, the removal of duals games, and that you can still not play clanmatches with three people.

    awww i liked team snipers in slayer. ah well

    Radar is on in MLG FFAs which is what Bungie’s “Rumble Hardcore” is based off of in large part. They’re just keeping current with the MLG Rules, which I think is pretty cool.

    Personally, I’m excited about Rumble Hardcore, and also I can’t wait for the No Duals settings to take effect in Hardcore. No more Combo Creek, yay. Also, getting rid of Elongation in Hardcore is great. That map always lagged.

    This update might be just what Halo 2 needed to give matchmaking another breath of life for me. I was just about ready to call it quits. This will hopefully forstay that for a while.

    I know this is a playlist forum but i have to post my view, give us some new maps and maps from halo 1. I want Boarding Action from Halo 1. It would be such a sweet map for sniping and all other games even without snipers, because you would see friends on the other side of the map die, and then teleport over their to kill his deathbringer. I want something to play with until halo 3 comes, so (bungie) give us some new maps to play with while we wait for our next addiction.

  19. Painkilla05 says:

    Bungie said in an update FAQ awhile ago that they will not be makeing more maps.

  20. jburton90 says:

    Why would they make more maps if they could be making halo 3.

  21. MadGecko says:

    oh man, i must be the only person who liked backwash… team plasma wars so ruled

  22. DM7000 says:

    plasma wars was lame….they never had plasma nades which r the best plasma weapon

  23. ColdestIce Man says:

    Yay!!! No more Backwash! I always do bad at that level=(

  24. Spartan331 says:

    What was with that thing with Backwash and the 360?
    Aww man, no pwning n00bs in random training snipers matches anymore.
    Why no snipers on elongation? That’s fun!
    Backwash is one of my worstest maps. And yes, I did mean WORSTEST. Especially snipers on backwash.
    Wait no more maps? Stupid bungie, probably slacking off on that Pimps at Sea again. lol.

  25. Total Sacrifice says:

    I love the update!

  26. cptkabuse3 says:

    yes yes yes less backwash i hate tat lvl i get lost and cnt find stikies or frags but tat was the only map i got host 2 out of 3 time :(
