343 should create a zero bloom Oddball gametype. Oddball on Penance could work. Release zero bloom Bomb while you're at it.

And I thought the MLG is the sacred realm for Halo-fans. There is no hope anymore. Halo is dead. DEAD!

Funny you should say this as I've actually grown a newfound respect for the AI in Reach by playing that custom Firefight mode I mentioned.

The basic idea behind the mode is sniper training, but with a twist - you've got permanent "Good Camo", slow charging shields that require melee to regen (or executions), unlimited sniper ammo and a shotgun secondary with no weapon pickups. Then I populate each wave with tons of targets with associated command elements. Your goal: to eliminate hostiles by executing stragglers and/or taking out command elements to toss the rest of the forces into disarray.

Since you've got perma-camo you spend a lot of time moving within and between the enemies, stealthily moving from position to position, watching the AI at work, looking for the best opportunities to strike (or stragglers perfect for a camo execution + shield regen) without getting spotted and jumped by the rest. It lets you appreciate how the various squads work together and respond to threats. Its slow paced but I always like trying to craft modes that give firefight a very different rhythm and feel.

One of my favorite bits was on Unearthed. I took out an elite from within the main base only to get pounced on by another pack of elites coming up the stairs. I stopped and sat in a corner of the room and let the camo go to 100%, and watched. Three elites entered frantically looking for me, but not knowing where I was they stood at the back of the room, surrounding me but staying in a triangular formation around my current position. They were waiting. A few moments later a pack of grunts shuffled their way inside the base and started to poke and prod ever closer to my location until one let out a little screech by walking right into me - cue a few defiant sniper kills before the remaining elites ate my lunch. Good times :)

There are no DLC maps in that playlist. I have no idea what you're talking about.

I'll be in Boston around 9am Thursday.

looking forward to seeing you all. I will be the 6' cute blonde wearing a HaloGAF shirt.

Also there is a chance that I will go to the Pre-PAX Gaming Night on Thursday (depending on when I arrive and what my brothers are up for).

My number one wish for Halo 4 is for the warthog to be fun for me again. Reach's version never felt right to me.

Edit: drunk, naked and fucking awesome.

Played one game of MLG earlier. Got matched against a team of four, inheritors, pro's and the fabled Kampy on their friends list. Went -7.

The settings felt pretty good, but if ever a playlist needed party restrictions, it's that one. Couldn't move without being eviscerated by three DMR's at once.

It was just Trueskill getting a sample of your ability against players far more experienced in the playlist.

Oh I totally expected to be pooped on when I went in. It would be awesome if they enabled party restrictions just to let newer/lone players gain experience without being showered in shit. I wish MLG would change their stance on it s'all.

We shall create a Halo which brings fun. Which we would play to the death. This Halo would be the Leviathan. The creator of the Leviathan would be the sovereign. His only purpose is to bring fun to the players, the people of the Leviathan.

Damn. I like this part of Hobbes' essay. Otherwise I don't agree with him. I'm just thinking it was so epic when I read it the first time. Sorry, the English version is written different but I only know the German translation.

Squad was loved before it was TU. Having a Slayer list without AL is far more substantial than all the TU changes combined.
