    @Bdog Instead of focusing on all the negative, why not devote the energy you spend on Halo to thinking about how it could be better?  

    But how could I when 343 doesn’t listen to anything we say? It’s one thing if they listened to feedback but we know Infinite will very likely be trash. I have zero faith in them and the cycle will just continue. A trailer for Infinite will probably release soon and everyone will lose their shit regardless of quality or a lack of gameplay shown. Kids that just play the campaign will defend the game because it has Halo in its name. It will probably die quickly because it will suck yet they’ll pretend it’s the best halo yet. I’d love to be optimistic but there’s no point.

    I usually just link Favyn vids

    I think I’ve watched a couple in the past. I’ll revisit them but it would be great to have someone address why the general state of halo was ruined by 343. I also just had the idiot I was talking about link something about microtransactions to try to help his argument. Goddamn I hate these people.

  2. Haven't really posted on this forum for a while so idk if this is the best topic to post this in.

    I get in Twitter arguments with idiots about Halo sometimes, I legit think it's bad for my mental health knowing how clueless some of these people are. I hate 343 so much and the army of kids who defend them just because they make Halo annoy me way too much lol. If I claim anything I actually can source it to back up my claims and shit, usually they just stop replying in that case or resort to other stupid arguments non surprisingly. They usually say bullshit facts I can easily disprove, one guy just claimed H5 was the most played Halo lmao, he also said it made the most money and sent a link that included console sales. I was in middle school when H3 came out and just about everyone with an Xbox was playing it, these days I don't think any of them even play halo anymore. Claiming H5 is the most played halo might be the dumbest thing I've ever read from a casual. I also get in arguments over sprint sometimes but that pisses me off even more, I really need to unfollow every twitter account that attracts these people.

    Anyways, I'm just wondering if anyone has made a post that generally proves why H4/5 suck, examples of why the new mechanics suck for halo, examples of 343's many lies, population data, etc. I sometimes get the urge to write a borderline essay that goes over almost everything that I can simply link to people instead of having to argue. We really need one of those but I don't feel like going through all of the effort, I'll just get sad writing it after how bad the state of halo and it's community (like the cesspool r/halo) has gotten.

  3. Seriously ... Cursed Lemon has been complaining since literally 2007 (on the MLG forums).  At a certain point you just need to stop and take stock of how much of your life/time/energy you're expending on complaining about something that your complaints will never fix.  A few posts is fine, but ffs guys ... 

     

    I've given up on halo ever being good again, I didn't get Halo 5 and probably won't get H6 unless they finally get rid of sprint.


  4. Hey man, re-added you a while back but still haven't had a chance to play with you! Glad to know we're in the same boat in regards to H5. I'll still be playing MCC sparingly so if you ever wanna party up, send an invite.

     

     

    Any Aussies here still plan on playing?

    For sure. I feel like we probably won't be playing at the same time too often but if we are i'll invite ya


  5. I'm not giving 343 any more money so I'll still be on the MCC. Well, occasionally since I hate playing alone and my friends will all stop playing this.

     

    Is anyone else still going to be playing this? I'll probably be playing casual stuff like TS, h1 4v4, and BTB if anyone wants to join :)

     

    Also, it's so sad how much I don't give a shit about a new halo game coming out. Fuck you 343


  6. I'm in the middle. 343's track record is bad, so I'm skeptical to believe ranks will release without any issues. At the same time, it's kind of too late into the game's cycle to be just now releasing ranks anyway.

    Sadly it's either

    1) Ranks work but it's too late since the population is already too low

    or 2) You don't get matched up with people with similar ranks. I just can't see them working right tbh, we've been lied to so much and it's probably going to happen again.

  7. If anything, they are doing the exact opposite of innovating. They are continuing to make the game like Call of Duty / whatever else. There's nothing about Halo that makes you actually want to keep playing anymore. The only reason people buy it is because of the master chief / campaign. Halo 4 proved that with its high initial sales and embarrassingly low populations. Halo 5 will be no different.

     

    Reverting to the original formula would be considered real innovation in my opinion. It's obvious no other shooter was like Halo, and that's part of what made the game so great to play and what kept the population numbers high (ex. Halo 3). And shooters today are also nothing like [classic] Halo (well maybe some, feel free to enlighten me).

     

    There is so much that could be expanded upon not pertaining to gameplay "features," including but not limited to:

     

    - Theater (improving functionality at the least)

    - Forge (turning it into an actual map editor, where maps can actually look awesome and unique)

    - Ranking System (obviously has needed perfecting)

    - File Sharing (What bungie could do, and 343 had no idea about)

    - Providing in-game guides/tips/training modes for Halo (allow people to learn how to play well without requiring as much ambition)

    - Leaderboards (assuming they can work in conjunction with a ranking system; a great way to keep track of stats)

    - Perfecting the netcode/functionality of the game

    - Providing the custom game options like Halo 3 and Reach had, if not more

     

    The first 4 points were major components for Halo 3's replay value. That can't be denied, especially considering Halo 3's piss poor netcode + weak BR. Classic Halo would thrive perfectly fine. But too bad 343 completely ruined it. It would be too unimmersive to remove all the garbage that plagued this franchise. We are left to deal with super fags who can thrust, drop, sprint, and climb even though they weigh 1,000 pounds.

     

    Halo MCC would have soothed this part of the community for eternity while the rest of halo lives on, but too bad they didn't give a shit to actually make the game functional WHATSOEVER; the most cruel, sick joke in gaming history. 343 should be ashamed.

     

    Anyways, I felt like ranting again.

    This is what I wish some people would understand. I see so many people defending the stupid shit 343 does because it's "innovation" when they could change the game without adding stuff that doesn't work in Halo. I haven't actually wanted the populations to suck in any of the recent Halo games but I hope that Halo 5 goes down the same road as halo 4, and it will with what they've done. Maybe Halo 6 will be different?!!?!?!?! :kappa:
