Halo 3 matchmaking update

More tweaks likely.

Bungie has quietly introduced a few matchmaking changes for Halo 3 fans.

"Halo 3's Matchmaking Playlists, just like Halo 2's, are dynamic and ever-changing entities," the developer explained on its website.

"Even now in the perilous Bungie towers, we're looking at new hoppers, gametypes and modes to test for future iterations and changes of these playlists."

This week's changes mean that Big Team Battle matches are now 16-player, while attacking players in one-sided VIP matches now get a waypoint for the VIP and Slayer gametypes appear more frequently in Lone Wolves.

"Shotty Snipers" are now also "greatly reduced" in Team Slayer, and no longer turn up in games they've been vetoed from.

Whatever all of that means. Can't you all just play Slitherlink? You can find all our Halo 3 excitement on the cunningly named Halo 3 gamepage.
