As you can probably tell by my Service Record, both on here and halowaypoint, I play(ed) lots of Halo Reach... But not ONE single game of "Arena"/"The Arena".

So can someone please compile a master list of all the changes that have happened to the playlist since Halo Reach Came out?

People convinced me to never try back in September 2010. They made me stay convinced through all of 2011, and even 2012. But Did I miss out, or am I missing out on something? And has it improved enough for you to recommend it?

Thanks

Ohai, I'm Loscocco (pronounced Loss-cocoa). I'm a college student (computer science major), 3D animator, and long-time Halo player.

I'm pretty sure I can count the current number of Arena players on one hand.

Seasons 1-6 used an individually based ranking system where you were ranked 1-8 based on your in-game score. Seasons 7 and on used traditional trueskill where your rank went up/down completely based on if your team won or lost.

As for settings:
Season 1:
Playlists: 4v4 and 2v2
Maps: no killzones on zealot/top Asylum
Slayer Pro-Sprint only
Default Slayer-All Armor Abilities

Season 2 changes:
Slayer pro removed, everyone used camo

Season 3:
Camo removed, everyone used Armor Lock

Season 4:

Season 5:
FFA playlist added

Season 6:

Season 7:
Arena Doubles removed, FFA playlist removed
Ranking system changes, everyone uses evade

Season 8:
Evade removed, everyone uses jetpack

Season 9:
More forge maps added

Season 10:
Jetpack removed.
