    With just 10 days to go before the release of Halo 5: Guardians, Microsoft has now announced more details about the game's multiplayer component regarding its ban policy, skill ranking system, medals, and more.

    First up is Halo 5's ban policy. In an effort to "maintain the quality of the Arena experience and sanctity of competition," developer 343 Industries will track the following behavior:

    [​IMG]

    • Quitting matches
    • Betrayals or team killing
    • Idling (AFK)
    • Intentional suicides
    • Excessive disconnects
    Players who "repeatedly engage" in actions like these will receive temporary bans that prevent them from accessing Arena multiplayer. "The duration of each ban is dependent on the offense and becomes more severe with each successive infraction, so continually killing your teammates to steal the Sniper Rifle will quickly lead to long timeouts from matchmade play," 343 said.

    Below is a roundup of some other details that 343 announced about Halo 5's multiplayer component.

    • You will never join an Arena match that's already in progress, but Warzone matches (which can last 30 minutes or longer) do support join-in-progress.
    • Competitive Skill Ranking (CSR): When you play Halo 5 for the first time, you'll first have to complete a series of "placement matches" before receiving a CSR. Finish 10 games and you'll be placed into one of seven CSR ranks (see them below)
    • Matchmaking: The algorithm prioritizes match quality "above all else." This begins by attempting to find other combatants at your exact CSR. If that's not enough, the pool will be widened to include players who are "around your same skill."
    • Seasons: These challenge players to reach the highest CSR possible in one month. They take place in "select Seasonal Arena playlists" and reset every month. Special cosmetic rewards are given to top players.
