Double XP on Spartan Ops matchmaking is a TON. Like 17k XP. That’s how I got to SR-130.

Sounds like a cool promotion from xbox live. That’ll be great for anyone who never had a chance I use Double XP.

too bad there is only like 40 people playing each chapter at any one time

I agree. Obviously, they’re trying to sell gold memberships but it’s nice to see them mix it up and spread around the love to different groups of players and people who’ve come later to the party.

of course for the ones that have hit the ole 130, double xp means**********nothing,

but for the ones that can use the xp Give me a shout, always like playing Sparten ops and if I can help fill up a team then that makes it better still. Gamertags same as here , just send me a request to play sparten ops

So where is the code sent to I am a little confused, will it be on our inbox on our xbox, or is it the email attached to my xbox?

To bad I’m already SR - 130 and 155,000 XP over.

I don’t know, sounds better for Reach honestly. How long does it take to max out in Halo 4? A week? A month? Don’t really see the point in double exp considering how long the travel distance is and how there’s no prestige system or anything.

I played 5 SOp’s in coop, and 5 alone: I didn’t get any message still. Do you think I am qualified for double XP?
Thanks,
Bobl

Same here. I don’t think there’s an in-game message, so you’re probably fine.

No startup notice announcing that it’s running this weekend and nothing confirming the player has completed it. They need to improve how they run these promotions.

Has Someone of you guys figured out how to use those double XP codes? I still got nothing, what the point in making you to wait so long to use them?

You don’t get a double XP code, you’ll simply login one day before May 24th and have 10 Double XP games added automatically.

If you didn’t get a confirmation message from Xbox LIVE then you didn’t qualify.
