Gatdamn that video hit me right in the feels.

I miss old school Halo so much.
I know man, me too. I've been enjoying Halo 4 again these past two nights, but that's only because I'm coming to terms with what Halo 4 is...

Why do I get the feeling they forgot it more than cut. Why did this only get mention at release also? I would think someone would have caught that earlier.
Kinda like my theory of them forgetting to bind the actions to the sticks in monitor mode?

Remember proximity voice? I remember pretending to talk to my own teamates within ear shot of the other team saying I'd be going in one way, but really going in the opposite direction. The enemy team would think they heard valuable information, but really complete bullshit. Worked a lot, and was awesome to pull off. So many people would fall for it. Created many openings on bomb/flag gametypes that way.
They actually had this feature through Reach, used to use it all the time in objective gamemodes.


If it can't be fixed right away the least they could do is take it out of rotation.
You'd figure it wouldn't be this complicated. Patching the hole might take a little work, but taking a map out of rotation for the time being seems like it wouldn't take more than five minutes.

EDIT: Happy page 117, nerds.

This Halo is actually really good, and it could be as good as Halo 2, it's like fine tuning an engine... Which I know nothing about so I can't go into that analogy.

They just need to listen to the right people in the community and implement some minor tweaks.
It's good, but there's so many things that are missing/need to be cut that I don't think it'll ever be the game it can be.

Just take out join in progress... Ugh. I like winning, and I'd rather quit than play a 2v4 HOPING that the magical JiP works.
Just played CTF on Adrift, where myself and the three other players in my party where put into a JiP game against a full team of five, and we were down 2-0 with the winning team flagnum whoring at our spawn.

The match went on to remain a 4v5 because no one ever joined our game, something that we were relying on to somehow get back into this game. We lost 5-3, and I really feel that fifth random would've been some sort of help. Either JiP needs to work flawlessly or it needs to be taken out completely (however bs angel confirmed that there are no plans to remove JiP).

The CTF changes are meant to increase the pace of play.

Your complaints don't even register as possible.

Yep, but the stuff that would need to be tweaked is essentially the stuff that is new and 343 is so proud of, I don't think we will see it be edited :(

A friend of mine and I forged a map today, a small map, perfect for team doubles I think (maybe 4vs4, but I think it is too small) and we altered weapon spawns and everything to old Halo standards.

We did some 1v1s and it was the most fun I had with Halo 4, it also really helped that we didn't played infinity slayer.

If we just could get rid of instant respawns.. but we aren't even able to turn them off in custom games.

Generic, I know, but it gets the job done quick and keeps you alive at mid-long ranges where Halo 4 seems to play best.

Literally countless sources and/or rumors including leaked presentation slides from an internal MS presentation. It's a done deal.
You can also tell by the map releases for Halo 4. Get all that out before the next generation xbox drops.

Classic, I did the same thing mate in flag & bomb, especially Zanzibar & Burial Mounds.

Fucking LOVE join in progress.


It was 2 v 4 for the first half of the match and people kept quitting out then my team filled up and we kicked ass.

If not for JIP it would have been an unfun ass kicking, instead, my team won.

Does anybody in HaloGAF have a working time machine? I want to go back to the Halo 2 days. Anybody else up for the journey? lol

Not that I don't like Halo 4, it's just that nostalgia is getting to me really bad right now :(

Well hopefully that's more just finally getting Halo a proper DLC release schedule, which it has somehow never had to this point despite being one of the biggest games around.

Just about to hit 47. Probably get close tonight if I don't hit the cap.
I must play too little, only 25 thus far...
There are 2 specialisations I really want to get into though. The EXP one and the stealth sound one.

Haven't had any good CTF games on it. Maybe because I went into matchmaking solo... dunno :/
CTF is a real mixed bag going solo
Fuck randoms and Aussie latency
, far better with regular teammates...of course.

I've asked about a billion times in this thread to no answer but.. can somebody explain how the Pioneer specialization works?

Does it give you bonus XP whenever you wear the armor or just whenever you wear the armor with your next specialization only? If the former, what reason is there to go for something else the first time around?
