Another week passes, and another Halo 4 Matchmaking update is coming, this time we will be getting a treat of “FFA Throwback”, what one could call a ‘returning’ playlist.
Earlier this week on 19.11, a playlist was added called FFA Throwback, but it was later removed and replaced by Team Snipers, Throwback was added unintentionally.
FFA Throwback– New Playlist!
“FFA Throwback offers two free-for-all experiences in one playlist – Oddball and King of the Hill. If you’ve been dominating these modes with teammates, see how the game changes when it’s every Spartan for themselves.”
The maps planned for this playlist are as follows:
|Teams||Disabled – 8-player FFA|
|Modes||Oddball & King of the Hill|
|Score to Win – Oddball||150|
|Score to Win – KotH||150|
|Time Limit||12 Minutes|
Other changes & information
With the introduction of FFA Throwback as a rotational playlist, we will be waving goodbye to Team Snipers for now, as a rotational playlist, it is likely to return in the near future in another playlist update.
However, all you Team SWAT fans will be happy to learn that the playlist will be sticking around for at least another week after Monday!
The following issues were fixed:
• Fixed scripting issues in Regicide
• Fixed exploit locations on Solace
• Fixed KotH on Complex
• Fixed Mantis spawn timer on Meltdown
• Made late joining improvements to Join in Progress in all game types
• Reduced the window for Join in Progress in Slayer game types
• Made improvements to Join in Progress for uneven starts
The update itself is scheduled to be released on 26.11.12 at 2AM PST time (10AM GMT).
If you have any feedback for the changes the Matchmaking Team are making, be sure to let them know using the Halo Waypoint forums, but more specifically in the Matchmaking section.
