I realize you guys are typically very busy as am I. So I was wondering if it would be possible to post up here an approximate time you think you might be playing some Halo 2 on Live. Just interested in a friendly game some time. Have a good weekend and hope to see you out there.

The girls usually post a schedule for the following week on their webapge. They have been in NY this weekend so they haven't got one up for this week yet. Im sure if you give it a couple days you will see a new schedule up for this week or next.

Yet it still takes over a minute to find a game sometimes...

Yeah! a WHOLE minute! How dare a game make me wait a whole minute! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Seriously, it does take quite a while for it to find a game to match with (which is wierd with all the people out there).

Hey Anim8rJB. Could you do me a favor and ask the guys there to do an update on the matchmaking service for Big Team battles sometime soon? Currently it only rotates between 3 maps and I was hoping to get Coagulation and Ascencion into that mix. Or do you know what matchmaking types typically use Caogulation? Other than that all is well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And please, no one tell me that there are "official channels" to send this input through. Just making small talk http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Only because you said it, I'm going to say, there are official channels you could go through to make those changes. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif j/k

Seriously I did see something on Bungie's site, I think it was in their matchmaking overview doc that discusses how the whole matchmaking system works. Well in part of it they discuss the playlists involved with the matchmaking system and how they are going to expand on them moving forward. But, they will be using people's input as to what kind of things they would like to see, so if you want to get it added quick, jump to Bungie's site and hop on their forum, that's where they're having the input placed.

Aside from that I do agree that you end up playing on the same maps, way too often in the matchmaking games.

Hehehe I knew that was going to happen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif Cool. It's good to hear they'll be taking feedback and expanding the playlist. I realize this game's only been out less than a week, and I know there will be updates/changes, but...well I think it's safe to say we gamers are sometimes an impatient lot http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

But on the positive side I still have to say Bungie did an outstanding job with the Live setup. The party system is outstanding to me.

It wouldn't be so bad if the games lasted like 20 minutes. I tend to get so many short games with 2 or 3 2 minute rounds, that having to wait 1-2 minutes afterwards to get another game means you are spending 10-20% of your time online just sitting at the screen waiting for it to find a game. One good thing is that waiting at the "finding game" screen does give me some time to think "Hmmm Should I really play another game? Maybe I will get off and do some work."

Also, it would be cool if you get a good game with fairly even teams if you could have a rematch easily right after the game ends.

Anim8rJB, we would love an opportunity to play against Bungie. Frankie was kind enough to let us play at PAX against some beta testers and PAX guys. We won altough they will say we tied because the flag scores tied, but as we had over 20 kills then them I am claiming that win. Can we make sure Frankie is there too, I love that silky bald head!! yummy! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yup. It will definitely be a match to watch.

Will, lots of good Live games out there right now. Burnout 3, MechAssault, Project Gotham 2... A good upcoming Live game will be MechAssault 2. And I know Valk and the others would hit me if I didn't mention Ghost Recon 2, Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow, and Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Hey, I talked with Nathan Walpole this morning about the Bungie Humpback challenge, and it sounds fun. We have been out the first week though, so give us a little time first http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I keep an eye on the Event Schedule to see when the FD's are going to be playing, but typically it lists individuals who have decided to play. From the description I got of the Bungie Humpday challenge or whatever, I know that's a team format. Have the Frag Dolls actually formed a Halo 2 clan that we may be able to see on XBL, or do you girls just plan to form a party off your friends list to face the Bungie juggernauts?
My ulterior motive is of course to encourage an FD clan that could schedule an hour or two of Minor/Major Clanmatch games from time to time.
