Halo 4 recieved its first TU today.

It did the following -Added the last strike medal and final killcam -Tweaked the super nade glitch -Fixed the boltshot insta reload glitch -And fixed the haven initial ordanance drop issue. Moar TU's are said to be on the way. While I hate having been sold a beta, at least 343 isn't sitting on their asses not trying to fix it. So i guess that sorta makes up it. Almost. How bout you, flood?

[/quote] 343i stated numerous times that they didn't have the time or resources for a beta, and I'm assuming that it's because they are a company created and directly owned by Microsoft, as such they have to adhere to what they say. They wanted Halo 4 at a certain date, 343i realized that they didn't have enough resources given to them for a public beta, and so they had to play test it out the ass. Unfortunately, in-development play-testing doesn't take care of certain exploits.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] VitalHalofreak [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MrMassakka That's all? So basically... they did nothing?[/quote]They said they are going to make quite a few TU's. Think about it like this, this game is only a month old, and it already got a TU. Halo 3 on the other hand, didn't get a TU for 8 months (correct me if i'm wrong) I think 343 will support this game well. Now they just gotta fix the other things...[/quote] Yeah because Halo 3 had a beta, so a lot of problems were found before the game went gold, unlike halo 4.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ROBERTO jh As I said, this was a functionality update, not a sandbox update. They're working on that one now. It's easier to squash bugs than too fine tune gameplay.[/quote] If you say it's easier, but I personally would prefer them to fix enraging issues rather than adding in a last kill and final killcam function.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] hispanicman15 That has to be lamest update I have ever heard. (minus supernade) No nerfing the mantis No nerfing the boltshot No nerfing the DMR [/quote] These don't be to be nerfed. Get killed by these things alot? Find a way to counter it, don't just whine because you keep getting killed by them.

    I guess I'm okay. I can't complain. - old

    They fixed it where if you entered a code, then everyone could use the item. I couldn't use my limited edition items because the code was already used.

I'm not entirely familliar with the concrete details of the policy, only that it screws over indy developers who want to implement ten lines of code to fix a save corruption problem that affects only 1% of the population.[/quote] FEZ :(

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Garrux [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] NINJA BUNNY 117 Did they make Thruster Pack slightly faster? It felt faster when I played today.[/quote]I hope so. After how useful it was in campaign it felt completely pointless the first time I used it in matchmaking.[/quote]Idk, I love thrusters, it's saved my life numerous times though yh it probably should have some increase in speed over sprint.
