In Response To: Re: H4 join in progress (Avateur)

: I really like Stephen's suggestion, but I don't think it's do-able in H4. :(

: CoD's join in progress sucks. It isn't any different, and that's the problem.
: Well, it's a bit better now that they've put in the half way mark bit, but
: I think they could still do better.

: Yeah no kidding there. Things go really well when you go in with a party.
: When I've gone in alone to see how it all turns out, damn. I feel like in
: H2 and H3 and I could go into Matchmaking alone and do just fine with
: randoms, even if one or two quit, and still even win a game. There's
: something about Reach and H4 where that doesn't work too well for me.

: I was being defensive? :P

: Stephen's idea is unbelievable. Could you imagine that in a game like Call of
: Duty or in a future Halo? I'm just worried that as soon as people saw it
: was a join in progress game that they'd back away from it immediately. :(

The whole concept of JIP in consoles is something that could be improved. Much like Goldeneye revolutionized split screen play, someone, eventually will find a way to improve JIP.

What Loftus suggests is a good idea, but at that point its already awfully close to a server browser interface that a lot of PC games employ.

People have brought that up before in the past, but a Host and Server browser menu kinda negates the point of automatic match making. Maybe there's a way to have both systems, but each has their own strengths and weaknesses.

That kind of system could be great for custom lobbies over XBL though.
