Thank you for the replies everyone.
In response to Veronica’s link, perhaps you were referring me to this section in the FAQ:
> I stopped earning progress towards Campaign Commendations
> You can earn up to the Silver level of Campaign Commendations outside of matchmaking. After that, you will need to play Campaign in matchmaking to make any further progress.
Thank you for the help but I’m really trying to make the point that people who play campaign deserve more credits for the time they’ve invested.
It’s currently unfairly skewed towards Matchmaking and Firefight in my opinion.
FYI: I don’t play Campaign Matchmaking as my only two experiences both involved betrayers and people trying to ruin the game. Therefore, I play Campaign from the Campaign menu, not the Matchmaking menu.
The last Campaign level I completed didn’t even feature a slot machine, (I think!).
As for the person saying I should play campaign for the story, not the credits, you’re missing the point of my topic. I do play it for the story, and go through campaign missions a lot, (even replaying Halo CE, 2, 3 and ODST campaigns from time to time, just for the story element).
However, I still don’t see why we can’t get the reward for it that you do from a 10 minute Firefight game or Matchmaking game. It just seems odd, that’s all.
If I want to make progress towards the next rank I’m effectively forced to stop playing campaign for the story element and put my time into Firefight and Matchmaking to grind for the cedits when I could be having fun in Campaign
