Something that I find the most fun about tomorrow is the fact that they are fixing the maps.

I tweeted Quinn about the new map updates and he said majority of the ordnances on maps will become Resupply Ordnances, with very few random ordnances on maps.

Is pre-discussion also allowed? 

 

I still am worried about the automatics buff, despite the autoaim reduction, they still could be veeery OP.

 

Light Rifle in my opinion got the exact wrong direction, but they probably want to have another strong distance weapon vs the DMR.

 

And goddammit how did they not nerf the Beam Rifle

I honestly can't wait. I don't see it making the population increase all too much but hopefully it causes more pro's from the past to dabble into Halo 4's competitive scene. With descoping obviously not being in the game, hopefully the less aim assist for starting weapons can cause some sort of a skill gap that this game lacks.

Not sure if anyone knows the answer, but will the weapon updates apply to throwdown tomorrow? Or will it be implemented when they put in v4?

Well that logic won't exactly work, as the BR's range is being reduced, and the DMR will still lack recoil making it more dominant at long ranges.

 

However I can't wait to 4 shot Light Rifle the people who use DMR's across the map. :)

Yes it will, and because of this, Ghost will be able to release the official V4 gametypes in his FS.

It will be in Throwdown, but it will still be using the v3 settings

To be honest, I actually am very interested to try out the automatics. I'm hoping you actually have to have skill to aim them now so random noobs can't destroy me with them in Rumble Pit anymore haha

Tomorrow will be glorious.

 

Only in Throwdown, as it has always been.

Actually, it will be implemented globally across every playlist.

I must admit I am someone who was worried about Halo with the way Halo 4 was going but I think tomorrow is a HUGE step in the right direction. With Bravo now being there I think he will definitely help save the franchise. I am sorry for doubting you Master Chief <3

Wow i didn't even think about the ordinance OS. I don't think they mentioned that, though. I think they just mean on map OS.

Now that I think about it, a 5 shot BR turning into a 4 shot is one of the largest changes in the series for a TU (or whatever they're calling this update). Changes like this and the addition of CSR gives me hope for Halo 5. Can't wait for tomorrow!
