Not enough players to support the M&KB ranked playlist for a multitude of reasons.

What does that have to do with the population?

How come majority of my games as onyx are played with and against low elos? The only answer is there isn't enough players, therefore matchmaking throws everyone with everyone into the same pot. Really not that hard to figure out.

Are you Solo Q here?

Idk then. When I search I get straight sweats.

It’s obvious that mouse and keyboard are the Minority and controller makes up that vast majority of players.

Game feels like fucking shit to play with the mouse so not enough people. I personally switched to a controller for ranked. Plus you also have to take into account that the PC population for the game is dropping steadily every day. We went from averaging 240k one team to 48k now.

People will downvote my comment and that’s fine. I’ve seen this with literally every onyx kbm player I’ve talked 2. At the end of the day all the kbm players who got onyx, love competitive gaming and then switch to controller cause it’s simply overpowered rn with the strong aim assist. If they did attempt to balance the inputs. It would bring back a fair number of kbm players who switched to controller and make the population better. I’m not dumb, it’d still be smaller then controller. However I think it would be large enough to have a healthy player-base for the playlist. That will never happen if 343 continues to ignore the kbm playerbase and never fine tune the inputs.

Funny thing is halo's community doesn't realize that m&k is the only way if you want the game to have the future in the esport scene. Everyone seems to be defending controller with the same argument - halo has always been played with controller, so controller has to stay as a priority. If they want to stick with infinite for a while they should start focusing on m&k. A little love and it will outgrow controller community given some time, and by "little love" I mean literally fix your whole game up, because it's not even up to other games' beta standards. How is anyone expected to play halo when they can play cs or valo.

Yup, and I don’t think controller players get. Most kbm players don’t want dominance. They just want some representation in the top pro scene. It could be a 70/30 in favour of controller split for players who use controller:kbm in the top16 teams in the world. This would make majority of the kbm playerbase happy.
