I'm officially done with Halo4 matchmaking! No matter what game-type I enter, I'm ALWAYS either paired with idiots or pitted against base campers! What follows is a rant followed by fix suggestions. Feel free to ignore if you wish. But I would like to hear your views on my 'fix' suggestions.

For the last few days I've tried hard to enjoy the new Ricochet game. The rules are very simple. Defend your goal while your team attempts to score on the opponents' goal. But can anyone I'm teamed with do this? NO! Instead the ENTIRE TEAM always rushes for the ball. If its the start of the game then its understandable. But not when its clear on the other side of the bleeding map! I'm so sick of always having to play goaly by default because of idiot players. It's Grifball all over again. Only with guns instead of hammers and swords.

That's the other thing. Why are there guns in Ricochet? All it does is encourage players to go out on their own and kill. And completely ignore the goal of the game or camp. Plasma Pistols should be all anyone gets to fight with. No swords or hammers because they have no range, encourage camping, & are instant kills long range weapons (including the magnum) and o e shot kill weapons have no place in ball based games. Grenades sure but none o. the maps unless its rare.

Grifball & Ricochet
One of the great things about Grifball is that you can kill from across the map. Granted the courts sre wide open & w/o levels. But those are no reasons to include guns in Ricochet. And why hasn't 343 addressed the camping issue that was raised in Grifball when they made Ricochet? Enemy Team Camping (ETC) complete ruin the game considering the fact that the teams ALWAYS spawn near the goal. Just how difficult is it to create a 'No Camping' zone/hill? A hill or zone that allows the Forger to set settings that do the following:

-Team Selection
-Respawn Timer: 0 to 10 seconds (respawns players after set time within the zone.
-Weapons: Yes/ No (Despaws weapons once player enters the zone/hill. This will also help with machinima)
-Weapon Select (If weapo s are allowed in settings this determines their weapons.

The hill/zone should also work on all gametypes as well.
If we could set teleports to only effect certain teams and not those carrying the ball then we could fix this now. But sadly, even though teleporters have team selection, they don't work that way. We can use trait zo es to slow down teams but not teleport them to keep them in the game effectively.

You should o ly be able to kill or be killed if you are within the hill.

Oddball & CTF
Only allow players to die if they are within a certain ratios of the ball/flag. Doing so will force players to focus on the ball instead of randomly killing to improve their k/d.

Allow players to choose where to respawn if they wish like we do in Halo Reach's Invasion gametype.
Instead of using zones like in Invasion, allow players to choose (cycle through) between team spawns or buddy spawn. Doing so would greatly cut down on spawn killing and also provide players backup if they need it.

Oh yeah. Also fix the bloody DRM, BR, & Magnum!! And while you're at it, briny back Bloom!
They should not kill players from across maps!!
