If this was the plan all along, then why wasn't it talked about? Not a very effective try-before-you-buy scheme if the people that were downloading it thought that they were subverting the price tag. Not to mention the official tweets that said "The mistake is on us - keep the maps!" or something to that effect.

Seems a little shady.

fuckin LOL.

Also, saw the patch notes. Didn't that game just come out? Glad they nailed all that down before launch.
Ya not like all new games need balancing or anything. Treyarch is taking feedback from the community, acknowledging them and applying it to the game. But let's just hate on CoD, maybe I'll go play some RANKED matches for a little bit.

Wish the same could be said about H4.

Ok, so they will still be able to play local or custom games.

I'm cool with that. Honestly, I think that's how it should be: Free initially, download on release as a demo period to test the maps. Then, after that period ends, either make people pay up to continue to play online, or pay up to use the maps, period.

Happy Accident?

Going from silky smooth COD to DLC Halo really highlights how terribly optimized Halo is. Yeesh. I swear to god I've seen some photo albums with a higher framerate.


If someone hasn't already PMed a mod about that hooker comment, I'll gladly do it.

We don't tolerate that shit here.
Please do.

Ah yes, I remember that. Still, out of context it looks bad.
oh right, the guy that tries to one up me throws me under the bus when people think it isn't cool. For reference I didn't call her a hooker. I said tell that hooker I want my money back.

In other words that what I feel like buying the LE, the console etc. I can edit it you are all so offended.

Pro tip: when angry just walk outside and chill out. I know it's easy to let our emotions get the better of us. I made an emotional decision that cost me $350 dollars last month, fucking dumbest shit ever.
That's why I smoke cigarettes. Among other anxiety-related reasons. And because they taste amazing with a drink. Mmm, time for another.

What are you talking about? One up you? Throw you under the bus?

You clearly called her a hooker.

Jetpack and HLS, need I say more?
RIP MLG. :'(

On a serious note, they did this mistake in Reach, too, with Armor Lock, but they realized, that it is game breaking. Wished they would have removed the jetpack, too.

Let's see what MLG in Halo 4 will look like. Hoping for the best, but I'm not setting up my hopes too high.

Well, I'll be damned.

  • Add overly abused AA's like camo, PV, and jetpack to Personal Ordnance. No high-tier power weapons allowed, add loadout resupply to option (includes primary, secondary, and grenade choice). This will focus battles back to fighting over map-specific power weapons, while still giving players smaller, less ridiculous upgrades.
If only I were a good player, more people would take my bullshit seriously, lol.

I've never liked jetpack. Destroys map movement.

They just said that in the stream too.

My thoughts are that players should be focused on the geometry and navigating the geometry. Jetpack makes the entire volume of the space playable, which makes it less predictable as to where enemies are and where they will be.
Well if they make it as a personal ordnance that kind of places in that "power weapon" tier. Much like what we saw with Armor abilities in Reach MLG. Sanctuary had 2 jet packs are pick ups, one for each team. That map played great.

Also, Walshy for president.

Sure, but Sactuary didn't really have any spaces where jetpack broke the map. Depends on the map I guess. My experience is that jetpack breaks maps like Solace where verticality really exposes most of the map.


On weapon drops...

Perhaps they should consider a drop recon loadout so at least each team has the option to determine where drops are occuring, if they don't opt for static spawns. Create some player roles. I actually really enjoy calling out what weapon is about to drop and where it is going to drop. Our team has benefited greatly from it, especially during objective matches. Can anyone confirm if they are going static? Seems static to me.
Solace really? I don't find jetpack to be a problem on that map really. When it does, it's the maps lack of symmetry that proves to be a bigger problem.

Well I think they're making static weapon spawns for MLG so that's not an issue. Agreed on drop recon. It's a great armor mod.

Of course no game ships perfect and they all get patches but I just don't like how it's, "well CoD did this, what did Halo do?" CoD has more patches than Halo!!! Is this not the first CoD game to have ranks that actually matter and tries to match people of like skill together? Yea, where were they 6 titles ago. They really listen to their fans! Not saying Bungie/343 have been perfect and they have definitely done some mind boggling shit but let's not act like CoD is the fucking poster child for anything.

I hope they aren't the final settings. Fuck jetpacks and fuck the DMR.

They should have BR and Lightrifle only.
Aye, DMR's just dull to fight with, even if it's really effective. You said it last night, 'pew, pew, pew'. No thanks.

And again, jetpacks don't work, like our game on Solace when the opposing team just flew and boxed us in on the tall spires. Not fun at all.

They have the good feature and Halo does not.

Calm down man. It's okay that COD is more popular than Halo. Take deep breaths and try to relax.

For customer feedback/settings/features

  • CoD became Halo
  • Halo became CoD

There's no way to defend 343 anymore, I'll say they have nice people working there but they running the game post launch in the absoulute worse fashion possible. If someone would have told me this 3 months ago I would have laughed and told them they are lying.
