The interesting thing about all this, you had the original Bungie that entire time to work with, and I’m referring to the Halo trilogy Bungie, not whoever these people are that created D2, but it sure seems you guys are working together seeing how you have followed them down the same lame path.
Do guys even know what made Halo, Halo?
In spite of all the issues, Bungie had within the company/Microsoft. They were gamers creating a game for us, not just themselves to see what they can get away with. The game is not the problem, and it never has been. Halo has literally been in your face that you could have easily worked off, and you totally ignored it with this bata. That biggest slap in the face since you started working on Halo.
Stop the BS and start acting like a company, not just another stupid business wanting to make a profit.
Edit: No people, I’m not looking for Halo to be “Bungie Halo”, but to strip the core game down to Barbone of what Halo was? Come on now…
(IMO) some of the decisions that should have been made, and some that shouldn’t have ever taken place.
-Removing RvB, making us look like beacons
-Removing collision, the use your head before you react…
-Fall damage should have been added to the game
-Balancing has taken a lot of the fun out of the game using weapons/vehicles. Things feel way too watered down, and some are pointless to even use.
- Creating a shop that dictates the direction of a game is the dumbest thing that could have ever happened to Halo. It screwed up the entire customization.
-Creating challenges as if this is a looter shooter? Sorry, not sorry, this is not Destiny and it should never be treated as such when it comes to grinding.
-Players choice should always be a thing when it comes to playlist. Not control every game mode they play. I don’t like CTF, I should have the option to not play if I don’t want to. meaning I shouldn’t have to leave a match, not that I have regularly, but it will become a thing that more players will end up doing.
-Bots, someone brought this up. Using a bot as a filler when a teammate leaves a match. Really???
-Forced cross-play is not cool, there should be a toggle, again, players choice.
-The drip-feed content is a sure way to lose a lot of players. 9 months before the forge world is released is hart braking. The one thing out of this entire game I was actually looking forward to. The one place players can get lost in being creatives doing something constructive.
343 there is a huge list of things wrong with this game that I didn’t add that have been posted. I suggest you take them into consideration and look for the best options that benefit the player base as well as yourself.
IMO 343 you have a lot to fix with this game, and the way you started this bata out is not a good thing at all. ( first impressions matter ) I’d keep that in mind if I were you.
