Over on Waypoint, 343 has announced a temporary, maybe permanent, change to the score to win in the Oddball and King of the Hill game types on the maps Guardian and Construct. The score to win will be changed from 250 to 200. The reasoning for this is to try and alleviate blowouts or “dead man walking” scenarios, where a team has such a lead in the score that it is mathematically impossible for the opposing team to come back and therefore giving up/not playing. The change will be made to the H3 Team Hardcore matchmaking playlist from February 15th to the 17th to test and gather feedback. Based on the feedback collected, 343 will be looking to officially make the changes for the HCS Invitational and H3 Team Hardcore playlist by the end of February.
