  • Making the arena a slayer Pro only mode has completely ruined arena and for the most part, this game for me. It was fun playing with my friend challenging other players in a 2 on 2 game even, if we did start with DMRs instead of regular weapons. There were a few bugs, almost entirely with the respawning. Where our teams would battle on one side of the map and both teams would kill 1 player, the other two would continue battling while one teams member would spawn on the other side of the map and the other right next to the battle. and even if you did kill both players if you were on the wrong side of the map while you were still regenerating your shields they could spawn right next to you. But now that arena is all slayer pro, I don't see any fun left in arena. Since this is the professional side of Halo why then are so many of the core parts of the game kept out. With just Slayer DMRs If you wanted to be off the radar you crouched, now in slayer pro this function of the game should be removed as well, since there is no reason anymore for crouching. If you wanted to be invisible you got the cloaking but it betrayed your postiion, so there was a payoff beteween going off the radar or invisibility. Now 2 of the core powers have been removed with the jet pack and invisibility. Why I am not sure at all. now if on a multifloored level you need to get back to your partner or find a new way to get into an enemy controlled part of the map is completely gone. Why again I am still not sure. But I am sure that this arena update has completely ruined Arena doubles, and since the same changes has been applied to arean 4 teams to that as well. I would like to ask Bungie, Why does playing your game on a semi competitive level remove so many of the core parts of your game?(Ex. Radar, Crouching, power weapons, jet pack, cloaking) Some say stop complaining because my aim at your head is better than yours, which in all cases I am sure it is, but why should you be able to start with your power weapon, and I not be able to start which mine, an AR. Since most people agree the DMR is the better weapon why can't I punish my self and start with the AR, since it is the better weapon you should be able to kill me. Is the AR somehow to powerful to be in a competitive format? Is not enough DMRs around the map for anyone to pickup? Do not all weapons have their uses, and their weaknesses? Then why in a competitive format, are most weapons taken out? are there no way to start with a AR, are there basically only DMRs to use? On a side note, I would like to put forth the option of being able to play Slayer games(by Slayer I mean just that Slayer). As it is there are only so many non-Slayer games one can take when selecting the matchmaking "Team Slayer" Before it is just time to quit.(Reach is by far the best chances of getting a slayer game in matchmaking of the Halo games) But there are too many times when I join "Team Slayer" and there is not a Slayer game to choose. I know this branches off an a couple tangents but My absolute anger at the changes to Arena has bubbled over and I was compelled to come to Bungie and tell them. (I hope this is the place to give feed back on this) I do want to thank You guys for making the only 4 player multiplayer game that I cant think of. As it is getting to the point of hanging out with my friend and saying hey want to play *insert game*, and then him having to leave in order to play it together. (many time)s if 3 people or more are hanging out Halo is the only game open to us

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Don Gino Goddo I'm a little angered that I sat here for 30 minutes typing a detailed summery of exploits and other factors I found that allow people to ruin other players fun in this great game to submit it and to have it just disappear AGAIN!! That is twice now. WTH?!... apple user: command-a, command-c win user: control-a, control-c do this every minute, it copies the entire text box onto your clipboard. if it is lost, go back to restart a new reply and paste (command-v or control-v) Problem solved. Forum survival 101 ;)

  • Armor Lock is a mulligan. There're no mulligans in real competitions! Invis is for cowards. They are all fun and great... but not balanced... so leave them out of ranked as much as possible, especially 2v2 because that is where they make even more of a negative impact on the fair gameplay. And my silly gamertag is not as weak as some tool that needs power ups to compensate for his inferior aim and reflexes.

  • Can the achievements that give 13 Gamerscore and 42 Gamerscore be fixed before had? I have a major problem with anygame that does this unless the achievements are linked/easy to get. The Invasion one looks easy but the stockpile one doesn't. [Edited on 11.01.2010 2:53 PM PDT]

  • Anybody understand what hte heck Urk is saying about lifting the cap? I'm confused. It's Nov 1 and it's obviously that we're gonna hit 117m kills on thermometer by its next update, even if they hadn't thrown in the b.net link challenge. I swear the only reason the daily and weekly challenges exist is for bungie to do statistical studies in order to complete their plans of WORLD DOMINATION. [Edited on 11.03.2010 9:34 AM PDT]

    Why still whine about AAs so much if they are regarding the least played playlists in the game. Seriously Bungie, thanks for putting in invasion, it's the best gametype in there! Too bad there's no such thing as ranked invasion, ranked as in the way most of us still want it to be. With this update, all they did is keep us busy with a pelican, to slow down the challenges progress, or to soothe us with when they make up something to delay the level cap lift. On a side note, even though I can't wait for more two of the new maps I'm not quite sure why no one mentioned the value of the achievements in the update. 50 points for a DMR headshot on long range_ come on bungie, we got 10 times less for 5 grenade sticks back in the days. Overall I'm still bothered that even though I did not participate in alot of community proposals, cries for fixes and so much more complaining on the forums, there are a LOT of peolpe out there who did put time and effort in doing this, that are not being mentioned, nor are Reach's broken sides mentioned anywhere.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BeerwithDinner quite honestly, the use of AA causes the game to be a little bit more TEAM oriented, as in TEAM ARENA... or are you to young to understand what that means? give a choice between PRO/DMR and everyone will be happy... the voting community will decide simple...[/quote] Anything but DMR in Arena will make people except those who use Armor Lock in Arena happy. Armor Lock is so unbalanced in Arena, in almost every single game, I was about to finish my enemy with a headshot, he then uses Armor Lock and then I get finished off by his teammate, if he was supposed to die by me, he should have died by me. Even though I love using Jetpack to avoid grenades, atleast there taking AA's of in Arena for good reasons.

  • LOl, all the new ranks and armours are gana be awsome... also new medals like offensive driver included. i just really wish they put more emblems from odst,halo 3 and halo 2, i also wish the SMG was in the game with the red dot sight on it. halo reach took off alot of the weapons off and put it all the werid ones!(plasma luancher,tracer,and combine luancher) and brutes where not in halo wars or halo 1 but they were in halo reach bungie should get there story perfect. the brutes leaded by toturus, enter the halo world in halo 2 half way in the game! and ended halo 3 ending of the game when the war ends and master cheif fate remains unknow of the fate of man kind. mabye just mabye bungie can just get a couple more bucks to make HALO:the movie. SUPPORT BUNGIE FOR THE BEST GAME ON EARTH

  • Agree with the Elite 'Run' and more frequent big maps especially team snipers or DMR's.. but the playlist games arent necesarly that bad... i mean they might not be everyones cup of tea but bungie puts them in for people who like it... but everyones entitled to an opinion :) anyway i have one of my own; Forge matchmaking??
