> I came here to ask the same thing. What happened to Exile?? Where are the tanks? Where’s the banshees? Wraith?
I hear that there are Scorpions on Longbow, but that seems to have like a 1% chance of getting into the voting options. I haven’t seen Longbow in BTB for a over a month. I guess that’s my luck for ya. There’s a Banshee on Vortex now.
You can get lots of Banshees and Wraiths in Dominion though.
Agree with OP. More variation, please! As a Warthog turret guy, I am in a depression right now. Why have 343 destroyed Longbow? It was one of the good ones for the hog! Even with a gauss, it was fine. Scorpion and Banshee? So sad about that, RIP Longbow (when it comes up).
I’d LOVE to see more DLC too. Daybreak and Harvest for one. Not every map needs to be Heavies or Complex and Settler! There’s something to be said for the classic Halo combo of Banshee and Warthog turret like on Valhalla or Sandtrap or even Standoff in Halo 3. It’s so difficult to use the regular hog with all these power vehicles on every map now. Ultimately though, more variety needs to happen. Complex/Settler/Vortex/Meltdown re runs are just plain boring. I did get Outcast and a Ragnarok today though, for the first time in who knows how long, but the Ragnarok was a mid way join in progress…

Then there’s: “hey the weapons are just fine on this map”.
343: “Ok, snipers replaced with needlers, frag grenades are now incinerator cannons”

I’ve started to protest these terrible maps (complex, settler, and meltdown) by backing out of the lobby as soon as I see them as the selection, or quit if I get joined into one of the aforementioned maps in progress.
Said in the bulletin that they are going to update voting options “to include an on-disk map in the first slot to allow for the best experiences for split-screen players and optimized overall map variety”. So maybe that will help?
