Asian Pacific Region Lock

There has been a conversation on region locking in Asia preventing players from matching US players on US servers and increasing matchmaking times for those outside the US. As someone also living in Asia I can also confirm this and often have to find other ways to play the game online. Wait times are so bad that I can find games on MCC quicker than I would Halo Infinite and most others across Japan, Southeast Asia and Australia- New Zealand also experience this too. 

The underlying problem is a population issue but there is nothing to be done about that, there is also a user experience issue and a matchmaking balancing issue where it does not accomodate for the connection people play on eg. a lobby full of Diamonds vs 1 Onyx player and the rest being Platinum but the Onyx player is at a very high ping. Where 343 Industries and the community management has not discussed this at all with anyone I figured we might be able to discuss this here and possibly present a solution to this.
