Did I invent Trait Zones in Forge?

You’ve all seen the RTX video about Forge where they showed off the Trait Zones, where you can create a zone that alters the traits of players inside. This is 100% identical to something I proposed on the Bungie.net forums over a year ago.

Developer guys, did you actually read the forums and pick out my idea? If so, thank you!

This happens a lot actually. Not that they used your idea, but you could of nailed one of their ideas dead on.

Dude if they did all the ladies will want your -Yoink-!

I would hope so. Even one example where a community member has directly influenced a game is a good sign for the rest of the community. I hope they respond and say they did take it from you. Lack of response probibally would mean that they didn’t however.

You should’ve patented it, and go to court with it like Crapple…

wow this is funny how close the to ideas are to each other

I think the idea came from the low gravity areas built into reach and was a way to give players those options and expand on it.

Nah, I just love them for actually doing it :slight_smile:

Well, I’ve seen this idea has been going around a lot. So 343i listened to their fans and took their ideas and now we’ve got them in Halo 4. :slight_smile:

The low gravity room in Condemned is what gave me the idea.

By a quick count, I’ve read about five different trait zone suggestions throughout the development of Reach. It’s really not a unique idea, so, I really doubt they got the idea from you. After all, it’s something that people naturally come up with when they play with the idea of player traits and how to improve them. It’s natural evolution.

I believe you were one of the many contributing factors leading into the idea. I highly doubt they copy N pasted your idea. I have seen other threads similar to yours asking for the same thing. Certain Affinity said they listened to what we had to say.
