Halo 5: Guardians Won’t Have Voting or Veto System

Halo 5: Guardians won't feature a voting system, developer 343 Industries has confirmed. Instead of giving players the option during matchmaking to vote on the particular multiplayer map they'd like to face off in, the arena will be decided for them, with a rotation system in place to cycle through maps after each match.

In a post on Twitter, 343 Industries studio head Josh Holmes confirmed there won't be any sort of voting or veto system, telling a fan: "No voting or veto, just straight rotation."


What do you make of 343i's decision to do away with a voting system? While yes, it won't allow you to weigh in on which map you play next, it does prevent you from playing on the same map over and over again.

I remember getting stuck playing "The Pit" in Halo 3 over, and over, and over again, because it was so popular. Don't get me wrong, I love that map, but there's something to be said for mixing things up every once in a while. A little variety is never a bad thing, even if it has to be forced upon the community. That's my two cents anyway.
