> The TU settings are not considered competitive settings.
Then who were they for and why was invis and AL, the two AA missing from Arena targeted for a nerf in other playlist? I suppose you believe this was for casuals?
> The Team Slayer playlist still allows you to play with guests and also can sometimes match you up with players who have just started playing halo reach
That happens in the MLG playlist as well, or am I wrong on that?
> Removing jetpack is a simple change that can be made by 343.
What about people that like using JP?
> It can help the Arena population a bit since it eliminates any form of cheap camping places within the map that don’t have kill zones (like the ones in asylum and synapse).
Fix the maps, not remove the AA, AA are the main mechanic in this game.
> Also, it helps bring back the importance of map control, which many competitive players enjoy fighting for.
Just wait until all the people that left Halo to play CoD and BF hear Reach now has more map control, they are sure to come running back for all the super awesome fun =/ No they wont
> Lastly, the Arena population pre-TU had a population of 300 players on avg.
Depending on the time you play, Arena will dip down below 300 post TU, at peak times I have rarely seen it over a 1000 players.
> The population has increased an additional 500 thanks to the changes that 343 made to the Arena.
The population boost was a result of Christmas xbox sales and I should point out that 500 players extra during peak times represents a small fraction of the population increase.
> Many former Arena players did not really have the TU implementation as a top priority, but it brought back a few former players who started playing once again in hope for more changes to come.
Really, they did not get tired of Skyrim?
> I can guarantee that the population of the Arena will spike if 343 makes the changes that many former/current Arena players on these forums have proposed.
I hope they do something, the population in that playlist is pathetic, when co-op campaign can beat you in population, you got problems.
