Halo 5: Guardians : In-game Competitive Matchmaking, Multiplayer Bans and Commendations revealed

343 industries today released Team Arena multiplayer mode details along with the new matchmaking and commendations system for Halo 5: Guardians. The system of multiplayer ban was also revealed by 343 Industries. The competitive skill ranks are below:

  1. Bronze
  2. Silver
  3. Gold
  4. Platinum
  5. Diamond
  6. Onyx
  7. Champion


Players can earn high ranks by winning the game in competitive matchmaking system. Initially, a player has to play seven Team Arena matches in order to play a ranked match in Halo 5: Guardians. The players just have to focus on CSR score after their Onyx level. Initially you will need to play seven matches in Arena before being placed in a rank. A season will be released each month in the game and players in each season will receive special badges. The matchmaking system in Arena mode will always begin from the start, therefore players do not need to worry about an unfair game. Additionally, multiplayer ban or low priority will be imposed on those players who quit, abuse teammates, idle for too long, perform intentional suicides, and experience too many disconnects from the network.

Commendations and Medals have also been released in Halo 5: Guardians which will be rewarded with REQ packs. Medals are also a quick way to increase the level in Warzone mode.  Two things, “Reload This” and “Comeback Kill”, have been removed from the game in order to reward the players in multiplayer. The “Reversal” medal will be rewarded to the players who comeback and kill those enemies who have dealt 75% to the player. The list of all medals and commendations can be viewed on Halo’s blog.

Do you think that the new matchmaking and Banhammer system will improve the gameplay experience for players? Let us know in the comments below.
