Crying about Spec codes

Get over it. Does this game somehow revolve around weather or not you have your
precious code? Right now that should be the least of your worries.

Ohhh big man on the end of a keyboard.

Hey everyone look at the big guy and his keyboard! lolz.

> Ohhh big man on the end of a keyboard.

Im a tough guy because Im annoyed by sniveling little kids whining about a spec code? Ok. Meet me by the flag pole at 3:10!

I don’t even get how anyone has the time to level so fast. I got the LE day one of the release, yet I’m only on my first specialization. Basically, it would have no affect on me had I not gotten LE (though the map pass still makes it worth it). Besides, if you only play this game to level up, your clearly only addicted to bar-filling and not having true fun. Those people who said they are not playing because they are stuck at 70, they are who I’m talking about.

not about the code. About the progression within the game. All the commendations and work will be for not. progression with putting work into the game. it’s about the fact that many were locked at 70 and said no bigger, the spec codes will be sent by the 30th. ok no prob. 30th comes and goes. ok we wait til the 1st. hmmm ok, told of a new due date, EOB on 2nd. ok waited still. MS said wait til the 3rd. OK HOLD UP! now the bs’ing has gone on too far. we were patient and knew if we hit 70 we had to wait. some of us waited, some kept playing cuz the 30th was near. Now its about the fact that we were lied to and played like high school boys at prom! now its just insulting!

that aint whinning OP. By buying the SE we agree upon the specialization being unlocked after the 30th. we playing until then at our own risk of losing XP and commendations,now that is hasn’t we, as consumers, have a right to be angry about deal not being agreed upon.

Quick PSA for anyone who wanders into this post and doesn’t have their code: they’re sent not to your preferred contact email, but to the address that you used to sign up, however long ago. This is what happened to me; I didn’t even have access to it, and getting into that inbox was a chore. Go log into your Microsoft account and look through all the menus and settings which involve your info. I found mine when I went to billing options and saw that it was directing me to an address that I hadn’t used in over a year.

You may have your code, just in a place that you haven’t been possibly in years :frowning:

Did you ever think that it wasn’t malicious intent? Anyone in comp-sci or IT of any kind will tell you that often times expectations for when something will happen do not always come true. They are emailing codes to EVERY person who has played Halo 4 online at least once. Well over a million people, meaning well over a million emails must be sent. Though these emails are automatically sent, the sheer number of codes generated and emails sent will bog down the system, maybe more than expected. Plus there my have been unforeseen problems like server failure or downtime/maintenance. I agree that 343i has been slow to respond to a lot of issues, but that doesn’t make this purposeful screwing of the community.

I get all that but who really cares? Anyone who plays long enough will get to where
you are at some point anyways. Until there is a true ranking system I could give two -Yoink- about being stuck at the current hold at 70. I play to win and I want to see that reflected in my rank. Getting points for losing is stupid as all hell.

Wussy.

Everybody knows true men meet up at the shop in the carnival where they sell My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fluff toys.

OT, These people aren’t grateful enough. But 343 shoulda saw this coming; CSR will be the thing others need to cry about.

i see where you’re going. But 343i is a multi-million dollar company. waiting until the last minute to send emails, KNOWING, something may go wrong and not starting this process on say…27th or 28th to allow 48 hours for a fix is just mindblowing. I work at a fortune 500 company. we make mistakes all the time, part of life, no biggie. but when our direct consumers are impacted in a way that mirrors a negative customer experience, it is taken very seriously. the projects we work on that can have a huge impact are rehearsed and all disater possibilites are taken into account to avoid any mishaps. the actions in regards to this promotion are extremely ill designed and thoughtout. this, to the consumer, is infuriating.

Especially since there are dozens of other ways this could have been handled. TU on nov 30th for those who played, ect. this issue was a small issue that has balloned to epic proportions. Not to neglect all of Europe being shafted, such a bad idea. don’t forget this is a JOINT promotion. MS & 343i both had input into this. not just MS’s idea. 343i created the spec’s and the coding which allows for locking/unlocking so they too were involved.

It’s okay saying that in a country where the codes got mailed out. Europe? No clue when they get any specialisations, and the LE sold out.

This is microsoft we’re talking about though. When have they ever done anything right on day one (or even managed to fix it?). xbox360 started out with all kinds of problems that they eventually got to. Zune wasn’t all that great (bought exactly 1 thing on it, a whole season of a show, somehow 3 episodes didn’t count as being purchased, spent over an hour with customer service). Microsoft Office has all the same bugs in the 2007 edition as the 2000 edition (especially excel). Windows Vista. Games for Windows Client (wouldn’t let me play a Free-to-Play game because I had no purchase number). I could go on like this all day, and yet, despite their failures, I keep buying ms stuff.

I’m just hoping that 343 actually can see this issue, and respond wisely.

I mean, if they’re not talking because when they check stats they see ‘Oh 10000 players, out of 400k, are level capped. Meh~’, I think the ‘Meh’ needs to be 'They need their codes."

rofl he said weather… gonna be stormy later today/tonight

It’s not just about level? I’d be pissed if I didn’t get a code. I’ve been wanting the Pathfinder spec really bad to get the Gunner mod. I feel like people forget that there’s a lot of end-game content people are missing out on because of not having a code.

You’re right, the game doesn’t revolve around whether or not its sunny.

However, the game does revolve around an xp based setting, and some people can’t even play half the game. They have a right to be upset.

… and how exactly are you judging what they are worring about…

I just woke up. Oh how horrid typos are right?

Anyways I guess Im just one of the few that miss the old days. All this armor and
other -Yoink- I could care less about. I just want to play for rank.
