R.I.P. Invasion

With Halo 4, Invasion is gone. Invasion is being "replaced" by a new gamemode in Halo 4. So Halo Reach will be the only game in the entire franchise to have this mode. What are your thoughts on Invasion? Did you like it? What would you have liked to see added?

  • Halo 4, should have invasion. Even if it Spartan vs Spartan, it can be a great play list, just needs to be improved from the Halo REACH version. I think Invasion should be incorporated into BTB. I hope to see it returned.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Xmark120 I found invasion to be BTB territories with Elites. Nothing special. [/quote] Diverse loadouts, progressive capture point structure, and spawning on teammates are some other key differences.

  • I thought Invasion was a great idea, but like many new gametypes, it has its share of flaws. But Dominion will be the superior successor to Invasion and Territories.

  • I'll be mildly upset that we're losing Invasion--as it's one of the only gametypes I play--but in the same token, I can't wait to see what the new gametype is going to be. From what I've heard, Elites won't be playable, but another type of character will be. My hope is that it'll be either Flood or Promethean...in which case, it'd pretty much have to be one of those.

  • I like Invasion a lot. I like how they have the skirmish and invasion slayer thrown in there. Games get crazy real fast. Remember Reach...

  • I loved Invasion and played it heaps, but I also found it very frustrating for being unbalanced & spawn killing

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] xDelta7x Hmm... From my analysis it seems I'm the only that likes Invasion.[/quote] I love Invasion, it just sucks all the people I play with prefer to play BTB. Invasion has some flaws, but these can easily be fixed. And I hope to see it return to Halo 4, even it has been changed, as long as it has the same principles and it improved. Invasion is the ultimate Objective Game Mode. Standing in a square for the timer to run down to bring down the barrier, is a little lame. I think they should had the Generators in Fire Fight you require to destory or protect. This would had been much better than standing in a square. I hope Invasion returns for Halo 4. As 343 seem to be improving on all other play list, im sure if it does it will be greatly improved.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Kira Onime [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] NoWise10 Boneyard and Breakpoint demonstrated this pretty well. [/quote] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] NoWise10 Boneyard and Breakpoint [/quote] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] NoWise10 Boneyard [/quote] lol wat Phase 1 highly favored the spartans with high grounds, DMRs. Elites were stuck on the low ground with carabines, that's assuming they are able to keep control of them. That's not without mentioning the open area spawn points. Phase 2 would pretty much favor whoever controls wraith/plasma launcher, otherwise, somewhat balanced phase. Phase 3 is once again in favor of spartans with their bunker, even more so when they decide to use AL/shotty. Sure elites have the banshee, but the spartans have so much anti-banshee crap that unless you're fighting retards, that thing won't stay up long. Letting the spartans grab it kills any chance the elites have, unless they manage to grab the power weapons the spartans use. All in all, outside of breakpoint, invasion was unbalanced as hell. And it also used lolVanilla settings.[/quote] The Spawn points were Invasions biggest Fail. If you had more than the 3 Spawn points at the start, like 5 or 6. And could choose any of them, it be hard to spawn trap a team, even if players quit. But with Invasion current setup, you can't change inital spawn, and you can get spawn trapped very easily. This = Fail. Invasion was a great addition to REACH, but needs some tweaking, and can be a great play list, that should rival BTB, and is why I think Invasion should be a part of BTB. But it also lacked maps which was also a fail.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] NoWise10 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] THOMSY99 [/quote] Flood is the 2nd character you can play as.[/quote] Arr, You maybe right, I hope there is another. As Invasion was alot of fun and a good play list, just lacked maps. I really think Invasion should be incorporated into BTB and be 16 players. [Edited on 10.02.2012 9:26 PM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Jin Kisaragi With Halo 4, Invasion is gone. Invasion is being "replaced" by a new gamemode in Halo 4.[/quote] I remember they said something similar to that but they didn't actually use the word "replaced". I believe what they were referring to is Dominion, the complex game mode they revealed last week that's sort of a cross between Invasion and Territories. I'll miss Invasion and I'm not sure if I'll like this as much... but it has a ton of potential.
