    Hi. Long time no see.

    I was wondering if there was an inside scoop on the upcoming BTB changes. I saw it mentioned in a community update but no real info. Do any forgers here still influence that playlist?

    I feel like this playlist gets a little worse every time they refresh it, so I don't have high hopes. But maybe--just maybe Pistol starts and a cut back on the heavies-type maps? Whenever that map inspired by the halo 3 control room comes up I just want to turn off the game.

    If you want to write up constructive feedback, I will gladly relay it to the forgers working on the refreshed versions of the current MM maps. Sorry to hear that you dislike the refreshes in the past, hopefully the one we are working on now will be more appealing to you. And if you want to get into the test lobbies and relay feedback, I'm sure the group would love to have the extra body. In fact, I believe that they are (or were) testing tonight. D4rkDeath would a good one to contact for the lobbies, if you have trouble getting ahold of him, let me know and I'll try to get the information of when they are and send it to you.

    Yeah, just msg me on Xbox. I’m doing 3-5 lobbies a week playing a huge mix of btb maps from matchmaking updates, new maps, and changing up starting weapons/game modes. Even an update to that control room map you don’t care for. :D

    Thanks and sorry. I didn't mean for anyone to take it personally--Just not my taste.

    Glad to hear the community is involved. Glad new maps are being considered.

    Are the lobbies regular? I'd like to get involved if the timing works out. Or maybe is there a list of maps to take a look at? (EDIT: even if its just a hard list of all the maps in the existing pool)

    (if you guys convince 343 to switch to magnum starts that would be the actual best news)

    No worries, not everyone is going to like everything! We understand that.

    We've definitely heard the complaints about the BR and w
    e will be trying a number of different settings to find what's best for the mode and in conjunction with the other core H5 experiences. No promises that it will satisfy everyone, obviously, though we will be testing variations.

    I know some players that are very good at Halo 5, and are also very brutal with how much they abuse the mechanics. Would you be opposed to them joining the lobby?

    No BTB map will ever come close to Scavenger. Can the btb playlist be just Scavenger pls.

    Thanks, fam. I was able to get my thoughts out there. Maybe I'll do a write up on each current map if I manage my time well today.
