'Halo 4' Competitive Skill Rank given a peek at PAX East

See also

343 Industries gave the first peek of the new Competitive Skill Rank (CSR) for Halo 4 during a panel at PAX East on Friday. The release of the new feature for the Xbox 360 shooter was confirmed for April but the panelists gave a peek at what it will look like on Halo Waypoint.

CSR will rank players a 1-50 ranking for every playlist in Halo 4 based on their skill and performance. This includes everything from Infinity Slayer to Griffball. The rank will not show up in-game but instead on Halo Waypoint website along with the app for the Xbox 360 and smartphones and tablets.

Players that don't partake of certain playlists will not be given a rank unlike previous Halo titles where they were automatically given a rank of 1. 343 Industries may reset the player's CSR after long periods of time to discourage account selling and rank locking.

As you can see in the blurry images taken by attendees at the PAX EAST panel, the CSR shows up as new callout next to the player's character image in Halo Waypoint. You will be able to see other player's CSR and not just your own.

CSR will likely be released alongside the Title Update 3 due out on April 8. 343 Industries also shared details on a free new Forge map and mutli-team play during the panel.
