Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

This game badly needs BR starts. Are they going to make a playlist with it or?

Pistol vs Pistol is far more fun.

 

They need to get rid of pick up BRs if you spawn with a pistol though.

They need to make the pistol worth using over rifles, there's no reason to ever use it if a rifle is available

A big weapon sandbox was my biggest fear for Halo.

 

In Halo 2 and 3, 90% of the fights were BR vs BR. The winner of a fight simply outplayed/out shot the other person. The playing field was completely even and it always came down to skill.

 

The pistol isn't the jack of all trades you guys make it out to be. It has the least range of any gun except the AR, the least bullet magnetism, the least auto aim, and the smallest scope.

 

You are at a disadvantage AT SPAWN against other guns, period. Yeah, you can win battles against a BR with a pistol, but you had to outplay the other guy by a huge amount for that to happen. If you face a person of equal skill, you will lose against common pick up weapons.

 

You will lose a lot of battles because you spawned with a bad utility weapon. You will lose a lot of battles because your oppenent RANDOMLY had a better gun out.

 

This shit didn't happen when it was BR vs BR. Skill won in every situation every single time.

 

It isnt fun having a pistol out against a weapon that's 10 times easier to use and dieing and knowing that person only won because they had a better weapon out. Killing someone when you have a BR and they have a pistol isn't rewarding because you know they had a weapon that was 20x harder to use and has the POTENTIAL to marginally kill faster if they fucking hit every single shot.

 

These maps are horrendous. Absolutely every good quality of good Halo maps are thrown out the window.

 

It's not fucking fun and equal spawning on the bottom floor of a city map that has 10 different levels. You used to spawn on the bottom of lockout and your only defense was knowing that your opprnent can only come from like 2 different areas. Now you spawn and you have to watch 10 different areas and 5 different levels?

 

This is by far one of the most unbalanced and unequal halo multiplayers besides Halo 4. Having a pistol that has the potential to kill a little bit faster against guns that are 20x easier to use doesn't just magically even the playing field like you guys think it does.

 

BR vs BR was an even playing field 100% of the time because it was the SAME GUN. None of this TTK and which gun has higher bullet magnetism and higher auto aim bullshit.

 

This has nothing to do with my skill level at Halo 5. I could be the worst player ever or the best player ever. Getting killed by a gun that's 20x easier to use than the gun I spawn with isn't fun, and killing someone with a weapon that is 20x easier to use than my oppenent isn't rewarding.

 

I'm 100% for pistol vs Pistol or BR vs BR, but mixing the two and throwing other guns in the mix drastically changes the meta.

 

It's not an even playing field with 5 different guns to use.

 

And the rail gun is fucking garbage. When you get killed by rockets, you can at least blame yourself for letting your enemy get close enough that he could kill you. When you get killed by a sniper you can blame yourself for walking in a straight line and being an easy target, but how is it your fault you get killed by an easy ass gun to use that's basically a sniper that shoots a rocket when you spawn on the bottom floor of a map that has 10 different levels and your opponent can traverse the whole map on that same high level.

 

You simply cannot escape and enemy on high ground in this game.

 

You spawn bottom on lockout? You just avoid the high ground because they can't see you from up there and you make them come to you.

 

Spawn bottom ground on the city maps? They can see you from any point on the map and you can't escape it.

 

The most uneven multiplayer besides Halo 4, IMO.

 

Having different guns is almost the same as having different abilities in reach. It's just not even.

Can anyone reply to my post that no one replied too and is a big concern of mine?

Slightly offtopic, it's disgusting how little reviewers care about Halo's multiplayer. Since H2, MP has been as significant, if not more, than SP. Yet the multiplayer is nothing but a fucking afterthought in these reviews. Seriously, every review I've read so far has been 10 paragraphs on H5's mediocre storyline, 1 paragraph on the new super amazing 12v12 Warzone, and 1 paragrpah mentioning 'oh Arena's okay' in passing.

 

I'm not expecting a fucking essay on the metagame of H5, but the reviews give zero shits about spectator mode, the new ranks, the lack of forge and gametypes, or even whether they liked the maps and new sandbox.

 

Imagine a reviewer treating Sc2's multiplayer, or Spec Ops The Line's singleplayer, the same way they treat Halo's multiplayer. Ugh /endrant.

Funny, I perceived the exact opposite at 11pm last night. Reviewers allowed a multiplayer portion that hadn't really hit it's prime yet influence their view of a lackluster campaign - hence the 8's and 9's despite having some less than awesome things to say about the Single player.

You repeated the same thing like 5 different times and I don't agree that the sandbox is unbalanced. The pistol is fine and has good range.

Halo 5 now has an 84 on Metacritic the lowest rated Halo game ever...even lower than Halo MCC

I kind of pity 343 as far as these reviews go. They are at a huge technical disadvantage compared to what Bungie had back in the day. HCE and h2 were mind blowing visually back in the day because the original Xbox was a powerful machine. Especially at launch. The XB1 is shit tier.

1) metacritic is a garbage metric for measuring games. Rottentomatoes does it way better

 

Am I supposed to really believe halo 4 and mcc are better halo games because of its mc score?

 

No. Halo 5 is superior to a lot of past halos.

 

2) stop bitching about the ranking system guys. The algorithm takes at least a week to work itself out.

People giving a shit about the reviews scores are only doing it because they feel like review scores indicate that Halo 5 is somehow the worst Halo and it feeds their hatred for 343. Please stop.

 

Black Ops 2 if you guys remember was one of/ if not the, best competitive COD and it had like an 83 on metacritic.

 

This review from Toronto Sun who gave Halo 5 a 7/10 sums up this game nicely

 

"I think die-hard Halo fans will love Halo 5: Guardians, as it’s a game made almost exclusively with them in mind. The rest of us might find ourselves a little lost, a bit let down and wistful for an old horizon that once reached for the heavens"

Why do you defend this game like it is your first born son?

 

Holy shit, give it a rest for five minutes.

Guess I won't play MP for a week then. :kappa:

No de-ranking, no reset for a month or so. Kind of too late for it to work itself out.

 

Other than this, this game is solid and I am having a lot of fun with it. Definitely the more superior Halo since CE and 2.

Don't you EVER tell people to stop "Bitching" about important things. We're simply pointing out that the Ranking system is not accurate. 

 

If we point out something is wrong, are we bitching now? 

 

Oh did you get placed low?

Super low.

"The facade is shattering! The filthy casul scum can't handle Halo! A game made for everyone in mind appeals to no one! 343's failure is apparent! CoD fans were your ally, developers, but now they have abandoned you! Truly 343 now has no other option but to appeal to we long time fans because their metacritic is kind of sort of a little low!!"
