I went onto a Youtube channel and complained about the changes but got beat up by fans. I think Halo fans are making a big mistake and are risking becoming apologists. After messing up the release of MCC, the jarring lack of large maps to play and the atrocious live action series they made to introduce Lock we should be worried. I even got shouted out of Waypoint forums for ranting about matchmaking being broken. I still remember one of the developers from Bungie stating that Halo was an arena shooter at its core and if the ability to ADS was added it would be broken.
Halo 5 Guardians Beta Screenshots and my first reaction/opinions of it
Halo: MCC Facing Matchmaking Issues | NeoGAF

Which resulted in launching one of the earliest beta for a major console release. The beta is scheduled to go live from December 29th till January 18th, quite a significant time period of taking feedback. But lucky for us Xbox Preview Members it began earlier on the 19th December. Bare in mind this preview beta only includes week one content of the full beta. Likes First of all the matchmaking worked well, even though its early stages after the launch of Master chief collection, the execution of a solid matchmaking system has to be the main priority. The implementation of sprinting and abilities linked to the thruster pack to hover, boost and deliver well timed ground pounds give the game more mobility and verticality, and really does make the spartans feel like super soldiers.
Developer has made significant changes to Xbox One exclusive first-person shooter Halo 5: Guardians based on feedback to December's beta. Sprint returns in Halo 5, and it remains on by default, but in custom games you can now toggle it on or off. It's in keeping with that legacy. This, in combination with the sprint toggle, means players will be able to create Halo 5 custom games with an old-school Halo gameplay feel, and opens the door to a "classic Halo" playlist.
