I think the issue is more in the meta. It was easy to go flawless in Y1, but now it actually takes quite a bit of effort. Honestly, in my opinion Trials doesn't belong in the game the way it is currently set up and crucible needs a complete overhaul before it is ready for a Trials style competitive game type.
I thought about this too, itd preffer trials to actually have set loadouts like how Halo Reach had
Yeah that's how really competitive games work, so it would only make sense for Trials. No crutches would be nice, for sure.
