From this weeks Bulletin:
“Starting on Friday and ending on Sunday, hopping into Team Objective and Super Slayer will present you with the chance of receiving a 20,000 credit bonus.”
Why bother trying to determine which one of these playlists should survive? That’s clearly the intention behind the jackpot to check their popularity… They’ve created/modified both these playlists and now they’re calling their own decision into question? This doesn’t exactly shine as a model for predicting future success when they can’t even implement playlists that suit the want/demands of the community. Making arbitrary and un-informed decisions is not the answer here…
They’re simply trying to get players to ‘flock’ to the playlists they’ve created in the hopes that they’ll like them. This objective is doomed as well because the settings are terrible and any of the ‘competitive’ players, those that don’t froth at the mouth when a cR jackpot is mentioned, will not be attending regardless.
We could get into the talk about why Squad Slayer was soooo much better than Super Slayer and the modified Team Objective but that’s been done to death and it is redundant to discuss at this point about why it was ‘better’.
The purpose of this thread is to simply ask: Do you think this jackpot is aimed at measuring if 343 made the right decision by foolishly removing Squad Slayer and implementing a terrible substitute instead, thus pointing to their incompetency in handling Reach Matchmaking…
PS: Don’t get me started on why Arena hasn’t been updated yet instead of consistently tweaking the total garbage state that Matchmaking is in…
PPS:I also love how they answer the MOST redundant questions in the Bulletins:
When in March is the Halo: Anniversary Series 2 figures coming out? It’s the 20th and they still aren’t in the stores or on the store’s website. –Babashnelp
So glad the 5 people that cared about this date got their answer! While the hundreds, possibly thousands of people who have been asking for Arena changes have been ignored since day 1 of 343’s take-over. Glad power in numbers means nothing here!
When will we get info on vehicles in Halo 4? Also, weapons, too? -VRTX Raptor
Be patient. There was no need for 343 to address this question… they can’t give away all of Halo 4’s trade secrets so soon or else there will be no hype.
Can we get a brief overview as to what will happen to Waypoint on and after March 31? -halomaniac87
It’s obviously shutting down indefinitely and they’re not going to keep it running… Silly but somewhat relevant question that was made redundant by their ‘be patient’ response.
