Everyone here is happy for the TU, (they should be) but you all request the same to things, AL, and the DMR(bloom, vehicles, etc.). You guys are all ovelooking the Cr system, Halo always need a system similar to Cod’s because lets face it, it’s one of the best multiplayer creations of all time, seriously give Infinity Ward a hand, what they did for multiplayer leveling systems back in 2007 was industry changing. It gives you a incentive to keep playing the game, and that’s what Halo attempted to do, but it fell short.
First issue, REMOVE GAME COMPLETE BONUS! Without this all of those AFK issues will vanish forever. How does it makes sense to anyone that if you go in a corner while you make a sandwich, YOU GET REWARDED! There should just be a simple formula to an XP system, the better game you have = more XP. Its as simple as that but yet Bungie was too stupid.
Second issue, make the credits you earn make sense! Think about it, when you get a kill with the AR, you get 4 credits! not five, not ten, 4! But if I get an assist I get 6! How does this seem logical to anyone! This is just one example of illogical cr amounts, mainly it’s because of Bungie’ lazy commendation system. (attempt to copy CoD)
Final Issue, and it’s the biggest of them all… AN INCENTIVE TO TRY AND WIN!! When I play a BTB CTF game I make sure none of my buddies even touch the flag, because there is no point! And Here is an example: If you play a game of CTF and one team wins the game 5 mins into the match, they will recieve 500 cr for Game complete, 100 for winning the game, and 100 cr for commendations. (just an example dont cry) But if they were smart they would cap 2 flags really fast and then just turn the game into a big fat TS. And if they wait untill the final second to cap the last flag they would recieve more than TRIPLE the Cr!
Final issue contunued… This is without a doubt the biggest issue with Halo: Reach, there is no incentive to win. If you play a 15 min TS game and lose by 49 kills, your only going to get a few hundred less Credits than the guys who stomped on you. This is also the case is CTF games, If you are on the winning team and you are the only one that is man enough to go into the enemy base and get that flag and make a heroic flag cap all by yourself, do you know what reward you get??? NOTHING, NOTHING AT ALL.
So there it is ladies just a few issues on the long list of them that the Cr system produces. I seriously could go on and on all day, when you look at Cr, the system is just full of “What were they thinking?” type mechanics. In the end the system as a whole is lazy, exploitable, unrewarding, and very boring. Please post about the Cr system on this post, dont just flame me for my opinion, just open your eyes for a moment and dont let your inner fanboy come through.
