and I'm over here hoping Halo 6 doesn't have wallrunning wiith lightrifle start.

 

Wallrunning as a base trait is confirmed at this point, but Light Rifle starts are exclusive to those who choose to play as the Warden Eternal Champion.

I don't even care if MLG comes back, with these shit settings it will be boring as fuck to watch. 

 

Unless the pros boycott the settings, everyone will just bend over and take it.

Maybe this is what 343 was after. Killing the hopes people had of MLG coming back so they're less disappointed when it's someone else. Then they'll change the settings back to try and get people to praise them for listening.

Who was it that was arguing with me that making the HCS playlist Oddball only for weeks was a reasonable idea? Don't make me find and quote you..

 

Me. (among others lets be real).

 

And i 100% stand by what i said before.  Making the playlist Oddball only wasn't the problem.  filling the playlist with shit maps and thinking that the new, slow-AF BR was a good idea was the problem.  Lets blame the right things here.  

 

And frankly it worked, those that wanted to try it found out very quickly what was shit about the weapons and gametype.  There are a few holdouts that still like the new BR better, but that is far less than the people who hate it.  The issue now is that its 5 days too late for a change to the playlist.  Starting weapons should have been reverted back. maps should have been changed. Tweaks to the BR itself should have been made already.

 

IDK why it takes an act of congress to get anything done over there.

I think that part of the goal here was to try to find a weapon balancing scheme that they thought could work on both xbox and PC.  Thats part of what this exercise is about imo.  Jokes on them though, just get rid of the AA and magnetism on PC and the rest will work itself out.

Off topic, but Hawaii just announced action to address predatory business practices at EA and other companies. He literally said "this game is a Star Wars themed online casino designed to lure kids into spending money, it's a trap."

 

 

 

I mean, he snot lying. These loot crates are completely out of hand, and absolutely abusing kids in terms of luring kids into spending shit tons of money on pay to win products.

I think most people would get over the lack of AR, because the BR is similarly enjoyable for people who don't have the best aim skill.

 

Casuals loved H2 and H3 and they hardly ever touched the automatics in their loadout.

Not sure about that last bit ... ye olde AR charge was a dominant strat in H3 social slayer X P

If they want a scheme that works on console and PC, they should go back to projectile. Instead of using varied AA and magnetism to determine effective range, just use varied projectile speeds.

 

Then on pc turn all assists off.

yes and no. overwatch loot crates are very profitable yet there is nothing pay to win about them since they only contain cosmetics. ea took everyone by the balls and is going to either enslave you for 2 years are make you spend $2000 to get characters that should be included in the base game. dont pay? have fun losing to the guy who did.

 

i like the idea of cosmetic microtansactions being able to sustain games post launch especially if it can keep game prices down. what needs to end is a company being allowed to sell you the shell of the game they promised and making you buy the missing pieces. i would hate to see all loot crates forced out with legislation like this when they can be pretty cool. what should happen is that everyone who bought the game should be refunded by ea if they choose

Belgium's loot box investigation(where they investigated it in EA's Battlefront 2 and Overwatch) came to the conclusion that yes, loot boxes are gambling and they'll be pushing to ban them not only in Belgium but in Europe.

 

Translated quotes: "The mixing of money and addiction is gambling," the Gaming Commission declared. Belgium's Minister of Justice Koen Geens also weighed in, saying, "Mixing gambling and gaming, especially at a young age, is dangerous for the mental health of the child."

Blizzard has cosmetic loot crates in all their games, which is fine, but there is a growing trending of making paid loot crates essentially required to play the game from other devs, which is disgusting.

Cosmetics only, know what you are getting before you get it.  Thats all they need to do and they would still make a killing.

I've enjoyed this game for two years, definitely the best Halo since H3

NBNS Reach is far better than H5

I only played that a handful of times.  I was so fucking done with reach by the time they made that change.

imagine being so bad at game development that one of the best pros is threatening to quit because of it. mix that in with no TO announcement and a lack of additional worlds info and we might out do the balloons this worlds season

Too much strategy for them.

Good, I want to see the pros stop eating 343's shit.

*edit because I was talking about it in general

 

One thing I hate so much is when people only focus on EA or SWBF.

 

OVERWATCH IS JUST AS MANIPULATIVE AS BATTLEFRONT. I wish people would empahsize that more.

 

Every single game that has any similar scheme is just as manipulative.

 

It is beyond pale how people will A) Pretend it's only EA/SWBF doing this B) That any other model is okay because it "doesn't affect gameplay".

 

It's all manipulation. They want free PR for when people say "Oh by Ubisoft does it way better" or "Blizzard is doing it right, cosmetics only!" Then people drop money because they "want to support" them or because they need to because progression to what you want is so slow. You have people spending hundreds of dollars every event in OW to get every item.

 

Stop pretending it's only EA, Stop pretending other models are not as manipulative. You're just falling into the trap these corporations want you too.

 

OW is not fine? Do you even remember how bad the system was for an entire year, especially with duplicates? Why do you think they bloat it with so much junk you will never use? It's to get you to pay more money for the one thing you want.

Thats understandable. I still remember the first time I lanned reach and it was when they still had armor lock on zealot. That was the last time i chucked my controller at the wall in frustration.
