Over the past few weeks or so, 343's MCC teams have been working hard on the next Content Update, or CU, that will be released sometime next week. Date and time are not clarified as of yet, however it's going to be the next best thing right next to the February Update, allowing Matchmaking problems to be sorted out. Which turns to only have worked for many, more than everybody.

 

They have not included all updates that will be applied, but there are a few that stand out to the Community. Some of them are good, some of them are bad.

 

Additional penalties will be included in matchmaking. Making players focus more. Yes, 343 has decided to add in penalties for anybody who betrays and/or quits the game. Now, I am assuming these will be similar to along the lines of a mix between what Halo 3 and Halo: Reach did. Halo 3 was taking away EXP, or rank. Halo Reach temporarily banned you from matchmaking. The timer set at a minimum of 10 minutes.

 

Which is where I get into the fun part. Ranks. Yes, 343 is rolling out the ranks! You know all those playlists that say "Unranked" with the description underneath the banner/image that reads. "Ranking Coming Soon"? Unfortunately, there's only one thing about this that they have said. It's nothing minor, but it's more of a safety precaution:

 

"Shortly after the content update drops (we’re aiming for the next day or so), we’ll be resetting ranks for the Halo 2: Anniversary playlist, and also adding ranking to Team Slayer and the Halo Championship Series playlists. Over the following days, we’ll be monitoring results to ensure that everything is working properly before adding ranks to additional playlists." -B is for Bravo

 

So yes, we'll be having to wait before additional playlists get ranks. But eventually they'll all finally get their ranks! Woot! Woot!

 

Now, here's the fun part. Playlist rotation. Yep. Time to bring in the fun. SWAT is coming in! However this is the only playlist being rotated in, it will now be permanent, or a featured playlist as they call it.

 

Last but not least, Halo 3's forge will be getting a little fix 'er upper. I'll let you read this part for yourselves:

 

"With this same update, we’ll be bringing SWAT back as the featured playlist, this time with Halo 3 game types included, as the April CU will also bring with it some additional fixes to allow for Halo 3 map / game type integration into new and existing playlists. This also means that over the next few updates, you can expect more non-default Halo 3 maps and game types to make their way into matchmaking." -B is for Bravo

 

That's all I got for you guys. I'm personally excited for the return of SWAT, and it being a featured playlist. All together I'm excited for this update! Let me know below, in the comments, what you think!

When Ranking finally comes in, I don't even have Xbox Live to enjoy it. :(

 

Good news though, Fishy.

Literally the only thing I are about is the Halo 3 forge fix. And I don't even use H3 forge.

 

 

I'll wait for some actual details, I'm hoping they reduce how often H2 appears in te BTB playlist because otherwise I will be banned so hard for quitting. That game is awful.

Here's te patch notes. I would quote but mobile site sucks. It's mostly multiplayer if you care for that sort of thing- which I don't.

 

However...
