I actually only bought Reach last week, but I’ve been playing it (as a Guest) on my buddy’s console pretty regular since launch. As such, I never paid much attention to Rank, and severely underestimated just how addicting it can be to customize your appearance.
Now, I’m actually pretty stoaked about the Halo Anniversary, though there hasn’t been a whole lot of information on it that I could find (specifically, whether or not it will function as an “expansion” like ODST, or if it will be a blank-slate Rank system). But before we go all “Out with the old, in with the new”, what about doing a cR boost for Reach, before the new stand-alone release (be it the Anniv., or Halo 4)?
That’s not to suggest that everybody should be hitting Inheritor without even trying, but – and maybe this is just being a bit selfish on my part – it’d be nice for such a thing to at least be plausible before the next big release, assuming you’re a really dedicated player, whereas now it’s a little more of a pie-in-the-sky for all but the most hardcore of the hardcore (I would consider myself merely hardcore; Hardcore level 1, if you will).
But, as I said, that’s just me, and I’m probably going to be biased anyways, given how late my official Reach career started. Still, anyone else out there who would like to see some kind of cR boost?
