Halo: The Master Chief Collection – How Does The Ranking System Work?
343 Industries has explained how Halo: The Master Chief Collection will deal with ranking across the four games that will be delivered in one box.
Speaking to IGN, a representative from the studio explained that, “Each playlist within Halo: The Master Chief Collection uses an independent skill-based ranking system that is identical to the leveling system from the original Halo 2.”
“The system uses the same exact XP requirements as the original Halo 2; players will earn XP when they win and lose XP when they lose, and total XP will determine their rank. You will have a skill-based ranking per each playlist; we ultimately decided not to have a ‘master’ ranking across all four games combined, given that player skill and approach varies radically between game chapters.
Additionally, we’ve also modified matchmaking to use skill detection, which will put players into the fairest matches faster than any Halo game to date,” he added.
“In ranked hoppers, players will be evaluated after each match and can go up or down in ranks depending on how well they perform. Social matches will also be available for players who prefer a more relaxed play experience.”
Halo: The Master Chief Collection is out for Xbox One on November 11th.
