  1. Holy shit. I return after a LONG absence to get my mind off of politics... and find the Halo threads all but abandoned. So I think, hey where are the people I used to enjoy talking to? Oh... they're in a politics discussion... being awful to each other. Fuck it, I'm out. Maybe I'll check back in another 10 months and you can tell me how 343 fucked up Halo 6 or Halo 3 Anniversary.
  2. While I do like being able to play CE online easily I'm still gonna rage for a minute. 343 gets zero credit for "all the people playing CE now" because they fell so far below what they could have done. I'm not even talking about MCC, but CEA. We could have had a ton more players playing CE. 360 had a much larger install base than the X1 and we could have had a working CE on that machine. If I was in charge of producing CEA I still would have done the map pack for Reach but would have worked a bit more at making it more similar to CE play. That would be a good stepping stone for introducing new players - who could then go into CE Classic playlist. But no, instead we get a low effort map pack, with a ton of gameplay comprimises, generating almost no interest for true CE gameplay. And then the big MCC fuckup... disgusting. I can only imagine where we could be right now if they had gotten CEA right on the 360, and MCC right on the X1 - the fanbase would demand that style of play in future titles. Instead we have all of the users of the only competitive Halo forum forming 12-man Warzone parties.
  3. I guess it was @@Infinity all along. Edit; Don't quote my posts @@Cursed Lemon or apparently you'll face the same swift scalpel
  4. HaloFollower needs a whole new staff huh? I guess now we know the real reason @@Moa stepped down as a mod here.
  5. That was before the TU. They ruined it by giving armor lock the plasma repeater and dropped every loadout from two stickies down to one. RIP vanilla Elite Slayer Multiteam... you were a crazy stupid bastard while you lasted. You could tell the change quickly too, Reflection used to be a mosh pit down by sword spawn all game but quickly transitioned to more regular play style with people picking needle rifle and holding top floor. Sad...
  6. Probably a speed-run. Those usually do well.
  7. Anybody know the file size of forge maps in Halo 5?
  8. But then it wouldn't be "boy-girl-boy-girl" It sounds like a joke but I guarantee you gender balance means A LOT to those in charge at 343. Many of their public statements have reinforced that. They could have made Spartan Thorne go transgender between H4 and H5 though, then they get another "female" character and even more diversity.
  9. I still think it's coming this year. They don't put a colon in a game title for nothing.
  10. If I get a shit spawn super close to an opponent I'd much rather have my AR out already. It's helped me get a lot of kills and I know I've been killed the same way.
  11. Your battery life in that screen shot stresses me out. I want to plug my phone in now.
  12. Right. But it is to the intended who can't find a game because of it. Fuck them I guess. But the bigger issue is that a good "social" play experience is more than just hidden ranks.
  13. With @@Moa done as a mod maybe I won't get banned for 2 weeks for using sarcasm. And I can finally find out if it was him or @@Infinity rapid fire deleting my posts every so often. (Prediction time: Will this post be deleted or will I be banned again?)
  14. Same reason they put "ranks coming soon" in every MCC playlist at launch.
  15. Anecdotal evidence but I never played BTB more than maybe 1% of my games H2-HR. My wife started with Reach and she absolutely refused to play BTB. None of my friends liked the list either, even though there were 6 of us total and it would actually make it easier to play together. It's all we played in Halo 4. Not because it was good but because the enormous Halo 4 maps were a better fit, the Armor Abilities were less important, Sprint was less of an issue and even ordinance drops aren't so bad with that many players. BTB actually helped "water-down" all the garbage in Halo 4. Still bad, but bearable. But hey Kevin, if 6,000 of the 10,000 players in Halo 4 prefer Infinity BTB... better make that the entire focus of the multiplayer dev team.
