This is from @Trip Dog over at xlink fb. It appears we have been doing it right from the start... However our arenas still get room splits and join failures so not sure how much weight this hold but nonetheless interesting.... Its a confirmed fact by xlink higher ups that we should be making arenas everytime we want to make a room. We need to stop making rooms in the General Chat lobby. It is not meant for rooms to be made there. When you are in the general chat, you literally need to establish a small connection/ping with every person in the lobby, but when u are in an arena, u are only connected to the 15 other people or less in that arena. Playing in arena instead of general chat lobby Gives A lot less connectivity issues and almost eliminate boots (almost) and force joins. Not to mention u can control who gets to stay in the arena so u can boot out a lagger or afk/fishy guy out if u want. Take it from the guys who play halo, they have 100s on everynigt and if u look, they ONLY play in arenas and they only utilize general chat for general chat purposes such as looking for wars or scheduling matches.. make more arenas, i promise our experience will be much more stable. Green up folks!
