    It doesn’t matter how good you think a utility weapon is if it spends the majority of the match pointing at the floor.

    Dude, I know. I made a thread for people to organize playtests and discussion. Now I have some responsibility for it? Anybody can host a custom game and talk about settings. That thread can still be used for its intended purpose. I do not have a vital role in this process, at all. What a ridiculous thing to pretend to be upset about. It's almost like she just just wants a reason to throw shade at me... Let me make this abundantly clear @TheIcePrincess -I found out about my AIT date well after making that thread. My life changed significantly in the past month. And I do not feel any sort of responsibility to update a Halo forum about it, especially when other people can do the exact same thing I can. -I wasted your time? That's a laugh. No one even asked you to be a part of it. THIS is why. Bad ideas like "remove the sniper", and all the inevitable cliquey high school drama are hardly worth a few extra bodies in a custom that are just gonna stat in obj anyways. And by the look of your progression completion, I'd say you have plenty of time on your hands, so give me a break. Lastly, zero part of my absence prevents this from going forward. You're just looking for an excuse to be upset. And your whole little soapbox diatribe guilt trip operates under the pretense that me and your friends would ever work together on anything to begin with, which is also a laugher. I want nothing to do with any of you. If any part of the last few weeks frustrates you that nothing is getting done, then take some personal accountability and fucking do it. ANYONE can do it. Trying to pin a lack of results solely on me because I made a thread on a Halo forum is a disingenuous attempt to dodge acknowledgement that your ass didn't do anything either. I'm not surprised IcePrincess is doing it because they look for reasons to give me shit. In fact, I don't even think she even feels what she says. She knows I'm right in the fact that I'm not a necessary part of the process. But she saw an opportunity to grandstand and try to make me look bad, and so here we are.

    They've successfully managed to destroy every Halo. They even rereleased the old Halo's and broke them just to really double down their incompetence. Took 5 years to patch games that were made for them. 10/10 company.

    Maybe nobody wants to be baited into yet another circular, mental gymnastics based argument with you when you damn well know everyone's stance here on Halo 5's movement. So I'll just leave it at a hard no, and recommend everyone else do the same.

    Yeah I think Lethul reaching 50 with M&K proves the point that Summit was just out of his depth in the ranks he was playing.

    Fighters, Madden, FIFA, Rocket League, Apex and Fortnite - the biggest games in the competitive circuit all use controllers. It's not that big of a deal shhhh PS. A Smite AM team using controllers beat a top Pro League team using KBM. A Paladins AM console team using controllers beat KBM players in our minor league and almost took a series from a world champion pro league team! CrossplAAy is here to stay.

    Penance being probably literally the worst Halo map in history while being a remake of one of the best Halo maps in history has to be some kind of metaphor for the Halo franchise today.

    Dude your opinion is literally invalid, can't even go positive in a 3man octagon lmao yikes fam.

    I would place a higher value on the opinion of an average player who grew up playing every Halo game than a reach kid who has dumped hundreds of hours into H5.

    What do you guys mean? I have a screenshot of going +60 in BTB, doesn't that mean every map I forge is better, every meal I eat is tastier, every opinion I hold is worth more? Of course you all would disagree, but your opinions are invalid because on the battlefield you are falling like ants. You don't even have max rank in HCS, THE competitive playlist people play for money. Keep crouching around with shotguns in ranked Mythic and try to get close to my K/D, pathetic weekend warriors.

    Why do noobs always complain about precision weapons? This is especially true for BTB, like r/halo spent literal years complaining about BR starts in H5 BTB, and now in unison they're complaining about DMR starts in Reach BTB. It's like they can't tolerate the idea that waddling in the middle of the open is going to get you killed in Reach, just so stupid. Reach BTB would basically be unplayable with their preferred AR/Magnum starts, so I truly find it mind-boggling that they want it.

    @Shekkles, I've seen both sides of the spectrum with my casual friends. I have some casual friends that love it. We play 4's together quite a bit. I think the strong starting weapon is the thing that helps them out the most. The longer kill times in the later games require them to be maintain accuracy longer and predict more, and they lose composure over longer fights. They also see their kills get away more often, and they still chase, which leads to more frustration. In CE they can kill what they see more often. But I also have some casual friends that get frustrated by the opacity of the game's information. "Why am I spawning here?" "Why does he always have rockets?" etc. And I understand that that's frustrating. But I put that more on the lack of tutorials, UI, and basic information in the game than on the mechanics itself. I've had too many casual friends have a blast with CE over the years to say that style of game can't be appealing to them. The game just needs to do a better job of teaching them how to play.

    As far as I'm concerned story, music, gametypes, and multiplayer maps (overall, Ce had steeper highs and lows) are pretty much the ONLY things Halo 2 did better. The changes to the weapon sandbox were atrocious, but the real atrocity is that they were never reverted and became the new basis for every game after...in spite of how senseless and shit that they are. Covenant weapons are still useless, redundant reskins of UNSC guns...even though we have 9001 daily suggestions, the original game, and over 25 years of FPS design to draw from to come up with proper alternatives instead. And then they throw a third faction's worth of weapons on top that have the same exact problem. Blows my mind.

    I gave OW a lot of chances, but the basic issue is that the game isn't a real FPS but just a MOBA played from 1st person. I also hate how "teamplay" is just forced with insanely strong healing and barrier mechanics instead of allowing players to organically play together and work as a team. If you're not holding hands with at least one teammate 99% of the time you're at a massive disadvantage and to me that's just no fun.

    Unrelated to current discussion, but holy shit the Halo subreddit is hot garbage. Tried to politely bring up how having AR starts in social was bad since a fair portion of the good players had migrated over from the dead ranked playlists and matches tended to get lopsided, downvoted without any response. These people are honestly the worst. They'll whine endlessly about "Classic Halo" and wanting to return to a golden era but 99% of them have no clue how to actually get there. They know nothing other than that stupid platitude. The moment you try to say anything constructive or helpful that isn't pertinent to the current circlejerk, it gets buried under a bunch of Infection clips or downvoted to oblivion. New to this forum, so don't kill me

    Listen here you little shit. I got +40 in every game. I only play CTF or Hill. I sit around the sidEs killing the new pLayers trying to Play the objective. I team up with My thrEe stooges and we just pubstomp. Ten hours a day. I have a fucking 7.89 K/D in social, especially in BTB. The power weapons are pathetic so I gather them all and sit in a power spot raking in kills on Pieces of shit like you that are just playing for a few hours before going to work or bed. The same worthless pieces of shit that shoot me in the side of the back of the head like the unskilled savages they are. I've put 800 hours into Halo Reach on PC and it's haSn't even beEn out for a month. That meaNs I am better than you as a human being. So Do me a favour, take your -11 and go fuck yourself. If you can't take the ten Hours a day to play this gamE with three stooges then you don't deserve an opinion. These numbers mean everything to me. EVERYTHING. This isn't about fun anymore. I need those numbers to be positive. It's how I DEFINE MY WORTH AS A HUMAN BEING. I need these numbers to be positive. Kids Like you fucking ruin my games with your accidental rocket kills making my numbers sometimes less Positive. How I am supposed to be Positive about my Life whEn my K/D isn't +50. You run in and cAp the flag AND THE GAME FUCKING ENDS WITH ME ONLY HAVING 20 KILLS. Stop ruining my lifE you sack of shit. Go back to CoD fucking armour lock AR kid.
