  1. I just skipped through it. Does he actually talk about wanting a proper pistol back or is it just in the description? If he actually puts some effort in spreading this opinion, it’ll be the best chance of improvement.
  2. I'm all for shitting on 343 but I think most of the new weapons that I've played with so far are actually pretty decent. It's role is not to be the new utility weapon or sniper. It's can stun vehicles and do minor damage to nearby enemies (I think, could have been a bug/lag of something..) and it is somewhat decent a long range. It's a bit similar to how the HCE PR wasn't just for killing people super fast. The problem is that 343 has taken "our" concerns (less redundancy, more unique weapons with roles outside of just killing better/faster/easier then the utility weapon) but went on and made a game that is 100% BTB focussed, to point where I feel like 4v4 was just an afterthought they felt obligated to add to HI but none of the devs wanted to invest any creative time into it... The ravanger, the brute spike thingy and the EMP-Rifle are actaully quite fun in BTB. BTB it self wasn't to shitty eventhough I expected it to be after the trainwrack that was HIs take on 4v4. It's just a shame that 343 failed to cater to both sides: give BTB kids their long-range-capable AR and their "It's-supposed-to-be-a-sidearm-bro" pathatic excuse of a pistol but they could have just added a somewhat classic Magnum as a 4v4 starting weapon (be it 3 or 4stk...) remove BR/CR from Arena and have it as a additional map pick-up for BTB. That way, both sides had a chance to enjoy the game plus it would be more iconic weapon that wouldn't be missing from the game.
  3. I‘m just here to remind everyone that 343 even named the new Pistole „sidekick“, I think they made it pretty clear that they have zero interest in keeping a utility weapon meta but want to cater to the „it‘s supposed to be a sidearm“-crowd. Have any pros commented on the current state of the balancing? They way I see it, only a massiv outcry from the pro scene can do anything about the balancing at this point. But who knows maybe I‘m wrong…
  4. Too bad most people I've seen talking about the pistol seems to think that it's a good example of a great balancing and that it fianlly is a side arm that doesn't dominate the sandbox.. I don't think 343 will do what is necessary.
  5. The HI releasing this year probably didn‘t have a development cycle this long… correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t MS scrap H5.5 early 2018 and development startet over? So it‘s more like 3 years.
  6. imply is a strong word here...the way I understand it, he says that holiday 2021 will be more important then this years and they need a strong line-up by then. H:I doesn't become any less part of next years line up if it comes out before the holiday season. I'm not saying that the game is coming out in spring/summer but don't take Halo FOllowers spin on this too serious...
  7. Klobrille said H:i is almost content complete and it us pretty much just some tech stuff being worked on... So don't hold your breath hoping for some significant change to happen...
  8. Between the obnoxious shield effect and the weapon model that looks really similar to the new rifle (minus the red dot), I was trying to remember at which part during the beta this scene was... Well, it looks bad but it's mostly the new Banished design tbh. When HW2 came out, everyone was hyping that games art, I allways thought it didn't really look that good, now we have HI with the HW2 art style and people lose their shit, kinda ironic.
  9. That side-rail and rail mounted scope look out of place. I'm in no way trying to defend the graphics but I think colors/lighting and those hideous cliffs are to blame
  10. Sooo sprint is in, which sucks but it was to be expected, sadly. But it's quite amazing, one thing almost everybody, no matter if pro- or anti-sprint even on Waypoint and Reddt seemed to agree on was that HI needs to feel fast paced, which it really doesn't tbh... the graphics are just weird, no details, no depth, colors seem way too oversaturated but washed out at the same time. This is supposed to be the Xbox Se.X's selling point?! No wonder 343/MS didn't show anything until now, they must be embarrassed the weapon desing is rather boring and interchangeable. It could just as well be Destiny or some other random sci-fi shoter what's up with those metal cliffs/column, seems extremely distracting, almost like minecraft aaand it's Open World, I really struggle to believe that the game is fun
  11. Who says they're going to drop the bomb today? I'd say no sprint today but some ambiguous remarks followed by something like "find out more when we talk about the MP part of the game" and then they'll go into radio silence until late september.
  12. You’re doing it wrong if you need a reason to drink at 9AM
  13. I've not been up to date for the last couple years, whos Adam and is he pro-classic movement? But let's be honest: 343 didn't give a fuck about us during H4, they didn't give a fuck about us during H5 so why should they care now? What would have to happen is a high amount of high community memembers, casual youtubers and well known competitive players to continuously and publicly stating their discontent over sprint. MS is banking on HI being the killer app it used to be during the H3 days. Creating a public backlash big enough to have an impact on the games public perception, hitting MS where it hurts, is the only way we can see some change. But I don't see that happening anytime soon. The seccond MS shows the first gameplay the few critical voices will be burried by tons of people being hyped just because there is a new Halo after 5 years...
  14. I'm actully surprised by the amount of people asking for sprint to be removed, not just here but also on Waypoint and reddit but in the end, most will buy and play it anyways... But I'd love to see a huge backlash after the reveal too bad it's not going to happen, too few gamers and youtubers have a backbone
  15. He says sprint is in. Well, I fully trust 343 that they can pull off another H4 population curve, even with a free to play game.
