Halo Infinite devs make major change to CSR as player ranks reset with update

All Halo Infinite players will need to complete 10 placement matches to receive their new rank after a reset that also comes with changes to the CSR system.

After several complaints aimed at Halo Infinite’s CSR system, the devs have rolled out an update that reset players’ Competitive Skill Ranking. The CSR system in place prior to the update had a significant issue with inaccurate skill assessment.

This broken system led to Skill Ranking inflation as players were placed in a Ranking above their actual skill level. Hopefully, this update will balance Halo Infinite’s competitive experience.

The next time you enter Halo Infinite’s Ranked matchmaking you’ll notice that your rank has been reset. The update that reset player ranks rolled out on February 22 and it has affected all Halo Infinite players.

In order to receive your new and improved rank with the new CSR system in place, you’ll have to compete in 10 placement matches. Don’t be surprised to find yourself in a lower tier than you were prior to the update as this is just the new system doing its job.

343 Industries decided a change was necessary after noticing “overly generous” rankings since launch, “Since we saw that the CSR system was being overly generous since launch, these changes are being rolled out to help bring things closer in line to where they should be.”

If the major change to how the CSR system judges a player’s rank is effective then we should expect to see an increasingly balanced ranked experience with some truly fair matches.
