343 Industries has announced that they will be releasing an update to the rating system in Halo Infinite next week.
Coming up February 22, the update will help improve the ranked experience for players of all skills by providing “more accurate, balanced, and fair” matches.
The studio says its skill rating system has been analyzing real matches since launch and is ready to apply the lessons. This live data will help the system evaluate player skills better and will place them more accurately in skill distributions.
This will be the first auxiliary skill update since launch, and they will be implemented continuously throughout the life of the game.
Along with the skill rating improvement, the team will reset the Competitive Skill Rating (CSR) rating so everyone can get more up-to-date CSR on skills.
Since the CSR system has been “too generous” since its launch, these changes are being rolled out to help bring things closer to where they should be.
That span of time has led to level-wide inflation, so most players would expect a full lower rating after a rating reset.
Since the reset takes place mid-season, players will have a shorter climb time after ranked matches and the highest CSR rank will be from Diamond 1 to Diamond 5. This change will not affects most players, but it means Onyx players will spend less time in Diamonds because the system already knows they can be an Onyx player.
343 says the update is not the end of the ratings changes, as there is still “a lot of work to do” and that it will continue to update based on player feedback and live game data. next.
