i know, they made halo 4 / halo reach for people that suck at halo. you had to be good at halo 3 to play team doubles or be a level 50. the new ones if you have no life you will be last rank lol.

I know, thats the main reason why halo isn't fun that much anymore.. And we dont even have a choice to play H3 its so dead...

There was a tweet a few days ago saying that it should be one of the upcoming updates.

They said 'soon'.

They'll probably add it after one of them DLC's get released, as then they can add smaller maps.

Haven is the only map i see right now that would be suitable for Doubles, even then it's still a little big. But The Pit and Construct were also Doubles maps on H3, they were medium sized.

They can't make everyone happy. Yes, doubles have not been out yet, but SWAT and snipers have made appearances. Which i enjoy. Give it time, more playlists will come and i am sure most if not all of them will stick.

If not having team doubles is absolutely game breaking for you, maybe you shouldn't be playing Halo 4.

Same here man, any reason why Relay hasn't made it into matchmaking rotations? Pretty solid doubles map if you ask me.

Don't you think they can do something similar to what Black Ops 1 did for wager matches? They basically blocked off most a map and made the actual playing area much smaller. I can see 343 doing this to compensate for the absence of small maps and make doubles fit.

Unfortunately, I think that's exactly what people are doing; not playing Halo anymore. If you look at the numbers, Halo 4 ratio of players is at an all-time low compared to any of the other Halos that were out on xbox live. Many people bought the game, but many of those have already got rid of it and therefore will not buy the new map packs or see the new playlists. I hope this will backfire on 343 and they will see that trying to make people like their style of gameplay will not be as successful as leaving the game the way people like it. I agree they can't make everyone 100% happy, but I think they took away a lot of the options that were built up in previous Halos. I primarily played doubles in Reach because with so few people it creates a unique strategy to the game. However, I appreciated when I was bored I had many other things to do like ranked team matches, multi-team, or even random stuff like griffball. I feel like 343 took away all of those alternative options that Bungie built up and already found to be successful. I still play Halo 4 because it is better than nothing, but I find myself sifting through every game-type in one sitting and that still doesn't erase the boredom of every game feeling the exact same.

Of the three playlists they have added thus far, only one has remained. I understand why they took off the lame "throwback ffa" gametype because nobody played it, but they dropped sniping after only one week, even though it was just as popular as swat. That makes me think that even if they come out with doubles, who knows how long it will stay and if it will still be there tomorrow. Very disappointing.

I completely agree. This alternating playlist thing they have is stupid. SWAT and Snipers are, the last time I checked, what was keeping Halo 4's multiplayer alive, mostly. Halo 3's double exp rotation playlists were cool, they should do that in this but make Snipers, SWAT and Doubles (all of the actually fun playlists) permanent so they stop pissing off the people who are trying to enjoy the game.

Team Doubles in my opinion was the best playlist on all halo's. It was the funnest and most addictive to me but 343 has taken it away and probably putting in that "rotation of playlist" and this is a major flaw in the game.

not for long, i think they're doing the rotational playlists to see which playlists deserve a spot (according to population) , and then re-add the most active playlists. (my speculation)

I don't understand why they can't add all the playlist at once, like in previous halo's and add additional playlist like grifball and Squad slayer etc. later but I guess we'll have to wait a month or two to wait if 343 will make any changes

i can't answer that, you'll have to ask 343 yourself if you want a direct answer.
