What was he banned for? All I see is someone commenting on him "lol" posting.

Not that I'm sad, had that fool on ignore anyway.
Probably because of that. If you consistently post like that and get called out on it... well...

I have no strong feeling on the ban one way or another. All I know is he didn't have an avatar so he didn't exist.

Man I agree, DICE has had me since BF2. Though 2142 was my most played and favorite installment. The soundtrack was beyond epic on that game.

And even though BF3 has no walkers I still enjoy it very much. The multiplayer that is.

Halo hasnt had very good marketing since the Starry Night trailer. :)

100% of his posts were cruel sarcasm or "lol"s.

Cleansing fire IMO. We need more positivity in here. And that didact gif is amazing.
Halo 4.

Base gameplay is solid.














Graphics and sound are good as well.

The rest needs some cleaning. Buying Halo 4 was kind of like buying a shoddy house and hoping you can fix it up. I'm dead serious, there's not much positives I have about the game other than the core gameplay, but the core gameplay is buried under a mountain of design decisions which I really don't like. Now it's a matter of if 343 bites their toungue and redacts some of these decisions, and adds in elements that should have been in there (Hello red X's). But so far they've given me no indication their doing it other than a potential new SLayer Pro/MLG playlist.

Game is pretty fun with a donging party though. Wish the old reach cleansers would realize this.

If 343i would just add 1-50 ranks with no bullshit(ordnance, JIP...etc) watch how many people would come back.
A few thousand+, but it would make the remaining Halo fans happy. Which should be their #1 priority at this point.

My gut feeling is the ranks at the current time will be like the BPR (like many have said) and won't make a difference and just piss off the older fans even more. I hope they prove me wrong.

To get me back they would also need better maps, better FFA, a permanent 2v2 OR 3v3v3v3 playlist, better matchmaking based on connection, and static weapon spawns across many playlists. I don't see that happening.

Maybe if the population keeps dropping Halo 5 will give me the overhaul that I'm looking for. Of course by then I'll probably have to purchase 17 different brands of junk food, and enter 5 codes a day in order to play the "fresh Halo 5 MP experience", but at least it will exist.

Yeah, I feel like better/more small maps is my number one priority. I feel like MLG could supply that in the form of forge maps.

Straight up, if they added static ordnance overnight, most people wouldn't notice. Hell, I'd even wager money saying they'd prefer it since now they know where weapons spawn! 343 implemented this beautiful waypoint system with the power weapons and had to muck it up with the randomness.

Is this free for premium members? I just bought the BF3 premium on 360 for $7 yesterday. Spent most of the fday yesterday downloading the four free 2gb map packs and three 1.5gbs title updates.

So many great PC attributes that came over to consoles with the updates. Tweak the HUD, server browser, rent servers, voice communication settings, etc. Really impressed.
All the expansions are free with Premium.

Aftermath is soooo good.

And it needs to be visible in-game.
Yes!

It would bring back quite a few I'm thinking. H3 still had the superior playlist management...

Social Tab and a Rank Tab

Pretty damn simple

If it's anything like BPR, they better not even waste their times doing it. I'm hoping it won't be but what Halo has gone through in the last months have me seriously worried about the direction halo is headed.

How come some of you complain about JiP? It seems to me that not too long ago that people wanted that feature in a halo game.
There was also a few people who didn't want JiP, me included, and even listed out some of the problems it would bring like a lot higher frequency of quitting because why do I have to play out someone else's 100-500 game.

Yes, thank you Ex. that's the screeen I'm getting in Safari and FF.

E: A friend accross town (L.A.) has no problems accessing from mobile, which made me think it was just me.
Tried 3 different browser and mobile and works for me. I'll refresh Cloudflair though soon.
Got this on FF, Chrome, Opera, IE, and mobile (IE on WP7)...

idk.
 
Glad to have that stupid Mantis stomp achievement behind me. Got so sick of jackasses on my team getting mad over not being first to the Mantis and plasma stunning the crap out of it as well as shooting and grenading it. I don't think I will ever step foot inside that damn thing again.

I can honestly say that was my least favorite achievement ever in a halo game, and that includes 2 for 1, which was a pain in the ass but felt so good to get.

No one is quitting out of close matches. Why are you guys so surprised that the matches JIP places you in are lopsided? You're out of your mind if you consistent expect to be placed in competitive games. The lopsided ones are the ones which need JIP the most.

Up for debate.

It wasn't implemented in the desired way.
I.e the game just started and now the teams have even numbers.
What we got was jip tactical nuke inbound and no spawns are safe.
The disappointment stems from people calling out this very obvious problem back when it was announced. The fix for it hasn't worked.

Well for starters, 343 had stated that they have systems in place to stop you from entering into a match right before it ends.

Comment section on 343's Crazy Halo 4 Custom Gametype: Binary Slayer:
ENRAGEDAustin11 18 hours ago
its funny, because they made a custom games video about the fun that custom games are, when they have stripped away most of the old options we used to have in place of harder to use options that we cant control. We cant edit Capture the Flag options to take away the new "flagnum", they removed Assault, VIP, Juggernaut, cant make flood hold any other weapons, cant make flood look non flood, cant change human colors in flood. utter BS 343 on the custom game options.

Maybe if the guys at 343i took their heads out of their asses for a second and fix the file browser, we would all be able to share gametypes, like these, more easily.

How about Grifball matchmaking, that's actually Grifball. You know, where the bomb explodes, which is the actual point of the game

So this is what 343's doing when they're not fixing the glitches and bugs in Halo 4...

We need rank mode like Halo 2 and Halo 3 1-50
I know there's been lots of complaining, essentially since launch, but the thing that gets me is that EVERY community has something to complain about.

They really didn't please anyone who cares about Halo with this game... Except for IGN, who gave them every award possible, which we all know isn't biased.

They really did drop the ball with customs. Honestly if they just apologized and said we were really tight on time etc etc. I'd be more than willing to forgive them. Halo 2 was a buggy mess but Bungie admitted they went through Dev hell with it.

But we still have no insight nor explanation as to why customs got gimped, why we have no red X's, and such.
