  1. Has anyone had random frame drops in MCC since the last update? I can't remember if it was the November update or the October one (i'm leaning towards the October one) but I've had around ~10 of them since these updates for mcc started rolling out. I'm playing on the stock day 1 xbone console too. Didn't really notice them at first, but when I realised it was happening more often I started to clip them. I believe I've had them in all games except h4. Don't have a h3 one clipped (definitely had one on narrows), but here's two from the others. h2 ivory tower (around 0:20) hce dammy (around 0:20 too) Going to post on waypoint feedback forums if no one has already edit: got a h3 pit one as well. seems to occur withing first 30 seconds of a match
  2. Ordnance, nuff said. Every ~5 kills you get a free power weapon / power up, and that includes the ones that spawn on the map, as well as the ones that your enemies drop after you whomp the entire team with a single clip of the SAW (its not considered a tier1 power weapon so its WAY more common in ordnance drops). Rinse and repeat, kills come way quicker. Oh and also, I CaN rEaCH tHe EnEmieS QuIcKer wItH SprInT
  3. Maybe some more emphasis on my last sentence will help haha From a social standpoint, the game was fun as for pub stomping. Load me solo into a H4 social game any day solo dolo and you can guarantee 30+ kills every game - whereas the older halos it won't be as high of a score. Its easy to abuse all the unbalanced mechanics to turn it into a good casual game, but not a good 'halo' game. Don't get me wrong though, on a competitive level the 3 previous halo's are WAY better. No descope can fuck right off though.
  4. I'd say there's a lot more OG players that preference the earlier halos, but you're not the only one who likes h3. I actually enjoy all the halos (yes thats right, even halo 4), and have played all of them at a fairly high competitive level in matchmaking. I find each have their enjoyable & irritable nuances (some games more than others in their own ways)
  5. Can't believe people still have this opinion.. https://imgur.com/a/nzjOAat Edit: Image tag isn't working at all
  6. Sort of a poor reason, but at least they are communicating with us. Happy to wait for it if they're not confident with it just yet though.
  7. Could you please change my username to "Jarrah"? Thanks
  8. Oh for sure. It's only games with low population that suffer though. Take a game like overwatch, fortnite, or COD on console and you won't have any issues finding aussie players. Halo's just dead over here, more so than elsewhere. On a side note, is it just me who gets absolutely ear raped on h2 elongation when multiple BR's are firing at the same time? It's like pure static /crackle when you're shooting next to a teammate.
  9. You're an aussie playing Halo, you should be used to high ping games by now. I'm also from aus, I'd say about 1/20 games of my games are on aus servers, otherwise it's just the usual 200ms+ ping disadvantage. Your best bet is to play dubs with another aussie then you've got 50/50 chance of it being your host. But you're right - hopefully mixtape solves this problem. I can't get games in anything but social, btb, h3 and dubs.
  10. Just a heads up for those who digitally downloaded the game, I'm from Australia so my official release was 30 minutes ago. Pre then my size of H5G was 54.8gb, but as soon as I entered the game it said it required the 9gb day one update which I had already done. The size then was 46.4gb, and I'm downloading the update now and consistently stops every 5% and the screen goes black when I try starting it again for a minute or two then starts again and is back to normal. I also have the new dash, which is probably what is causing it. My friends had 0G on there game and theirs worked fine. Now I'm salty af kk microsoft/343
  11. I read a post a while back on this forum that Sal1ent made about possibly implementing an API/stat tracking service for h5, but can't seem to find it. Anyone remember what it specifically said/can quote?
  12. H4 for sure, barely find decent connection games on mcc since last few updates so I've been on 360 more frequently. If you ignore a lot of the random bs like ordnance+descope and run thruster pack it seems to play very similar imo. I also noticed after playing h4 again you start to stop caring about your positioning due to sprint+ thruster, its a really bad influence for the other halo's but i guess thats what h5 will be like.
  13. oh really? just my opinion tho man. I played a tonne of h4 btb and I couldn't stand meltdown, and it turns out complex was one of my favourite. Can agree for wreckage and adrift tho..
  14. I'm after this also. A guy on my friends list posted this clip of jugg settings xboxdvr.com/iTz+Aussie/4dbe6237-28a1-4da7-aef3-fb4d809468b0 Was hoping to get it from him but haven't been able to reach him. Anyone know the source of these map/gametypes?
