Things 343i MUST Fix for The TU.

After hours of contemplation, observation and reviewing mechanics, I think I've composed what is a reasonable and extremely helpful list or guideline that 343i should consider taking into account, in order to ensure the continued success of their game. Now I'm sure there may be a few items that each of you may disagree with, but that is to be expected in an area with so many differentiating opinions, so I ask that you keep that in mind. Now, moving on... The list of changes are not necessarily in any appropriate order, because I would assume that they are all equally important in order to maintain a solid and fair online experience. We shall start with weapons first I suppose. [b]Weapons[/b] - Nerf the AR as it is more efficient than precision weapons at close range. Or just take it out of MM. - The DMR needs to be tweaked. The clip is so large and the recoil so minimal that it should realistically be weaker. I think having to aim an entire clip at someone's head would be the appropriate amount of shots require to kill your opponent. Or just take it out of MM. - The BR spread is too concentrated. Remember when everyone complained about its poor spread in Halo 3? Well now it's just ridiculously overpowered. A guy shoots me a few times in the body then in the head, and gets a kill!? Wow, ok... - The pistol needs to be stronger. 2-3 bullets max should do... It would definitely level the playing field against the other overpowered weapons listed above. [b]Vehicles[/b] - The Warthog is too weak. I get blasted by a tank and or a banshee and my vehicle basically just falls apart. Remember how strong the Halo CE Warthog was? Yeah, but apparently that's too much to ask for. - The Banshee is way too slow. I should be able to fly around and not have to be concerned about trying to escape from enemy fire. I should be able to get in, kill the enemy and fly out faster than someone using a weapon ground can target me. - The Tank is too strong. I'm wearing MJOLNIR armor. Aren't I suppose to be as strong as a tank? Might as well just take it out of every playlist since its so overpowered. I discuss AA's soon, depending on whether or not my advisements are taken. Just so I know I'm not wasting my breath. You guys agree? Right? [Edited on 11.19.2012 7:41 AM PST]

  • Helveck, we're still waiting on your suggested changes to the AA's.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] The Tempun AR is an assault rifle. [b]assault[/b] It's suppose to be stronger up close. BR Medium to close range. DMR Marksman rifle [b]Marksman[/b]. It's suppose to work well at long range & medium range. Pistols are suppose to be weaker than rifles. I sort of agree that atleast the warthog should be atleast a little more immune to Plasma pistols seeing as everyone can spawn with one but that's irrelevant, it's strong enough as it is. Banshee should be able to die as soon as possible. It's fair, that thing kills with one blast.[/quote]The Joke -------- Your Head --------

  • Seeing as I have yet to play the game I'm not so certain as to what balancing changes must be made to improve the lousy experience, but you do a good job in explaining why the various weapons needs tweaking, and how, so I'd say 343i should hire you and fire whoever thought it was a good idea to take out the custom powerup from the game.

Might as well just take it out of every playlist since its so overpowered. [/quote] Because armor and shields = direct/near-hit with a tank shell. 0/10, piss-poor attempt at trolling.[/quote]

  • Assumes Halo Reach will be just like Halo 2, whines for title update when it isn't, Bungie refuses to title update, more whining, 343 takes over and releases TU, everyone complains about changes, 343i announces Halo 4, people give up on Halo Reach. So forgive me if this current situation seems familiar.
