Did Bungie have plans to add MLG rules to Halo: Reach playlists?
MLG in Halo: Reach?
" @Green_Incarnate: "Ranks" as you knew them in Halo 3 do not exist anymore. The only ranked playlists in Reach are Arena lists; the rest use a purer form of True Skill with ranks that are invisible to players in order to make quality matches. Since the Arena rating formula is Slayer-only and not designed to handle Objective scoring, and MLG has plenty of Objective games in their settings, it's impossible to make an Arena MLG playlist. "Arena is the one with the tiers a la starcraft 2 right?
" @NekuSakuraba: Yes. IIRC,MLG announced that they will be switching to Reach for the 2011 season, and that the rest of this year's Combines will feature Halo: Reach instead of Halo 3, in preparation for next year's competitions. "So they are staying with Reach forever than?
They already started- the next combine is reach only and the top 8 seeded players from the combine will become seeds 9-16 for the next full season of reach (h3 seeds 1-8 will retain their seedings).
" That will more then likely happen next year when MLG switches over from Halo 3 to Reach. "
And MLG officials said that it would be out within a week of launch, or the first playlist update for the game.
Yes. they always move to the new game as a business decision, because more players play the new one so that's where the interest will be. They'll discontinue it whenever there's too little interst for that to make sense.

Tentative MLG settings based on what I've seen from the community are DMR start, either no AA's, sprint, or evade, 110-120% speed, 90-100% damage (debate on whether DMR should be 4shot or 5), 110% jump.
V1 maps (before they forge shit) will likely be Sanctuary (whatever the remake is called), zealot (low g area blocked off), and the cage. The only objective game decided on so far was CTF on Sanc.
Again those aren't official, just what most of the community and some of the community playtesters (some of the community help out the testers with testing gametypes) seem to agree on.
