I thought that it was already a matchmaking system?
Aaa like the clan feature in Halo 2? Yea that would be very nice especially for me as i am in a clan myself.Yeah it matches you via quickmatch using the MS truskill system I believe. But everyone were I go and friends I speak with all say same thing that it could do with a party system to allow a group of us to go looking for another group of 4 to play ranked games with.
I myself have noticed lately that player match invites I send out aren't as quickly accepted friends are now replying telling me they aren't in the mood for it and have gone on to vegas/cod3. I love GOW but I myself see there points in player matches you can be waiting forever for people to join your game and when you do ranked game with or without getting friends in the backdoor, strangers will leave mid-game.
