In Response To: Re: How's This For Dominance? (Louis Wu)

: This is the sort of matchmaking that makes me wish 343's algorithms were
: better. You should never have played these guys - they're 20+ levels below
: you in CSR. ALL of them. (I'm used to seeing the algorithm try and at
: least match CSR sums per team - which sometimes leads to a team with, say,
: 38, 12, 12, 12 get matched against 18, 18, 18, 18 - but this kind of awful
: matching usually only happens when you have full teams looking for
: matches, and the population is too low to be fair. Were the other 3 people
: on your team folks you were playing with as a team?)

Is CSR actually being used for matching? I'm under the impression that Trueskill is actually the underlying skillmatch system, and CSR is essentially 343's web-only Reach arena rankings.

A quick look around at each player's stats (there doesn't seem to be a way to view games by playlist) seem to indicate to me that the randoms Morpheus faced have played too few for Trueskill to figure them out in a 4v4 playlist. Add to this fact that Halo 4's low population would certainly have 343 setting TS to "loose" mode to keep match times reasonable.
