Was playing Fiesta with my SOs; one of them and myself both had “Get 5 Killing Sprees in Fiesta” as our only event challenge. We HAVE to play this mode if we want event progression; I already know I’d rather play something more relaxed, but I’m sure everyone reading this understands the feeling of “Well, gotta do what the challenges say or I get nothing.” I start our session already feeling pessimistic about my ability to get even a single spre
I’m not great at Halo, but I’m not exactly trash; I’m usually at least in the top third of the board on BTB…but Fiesta is just a hot garbage fire. I spent the ENTIRE MATCH following the same exact pattern:
-Spawn with something useless, like a Commando and a Sidekick
-Wander around the map for about 15-30 seconds looking for the action
-Suddenly get slaughtered out of nowhere by some premium-skin-wearing sweatlord who’s corner-camping with both a grav hammer AND a plasma sword (literally, this wouldn’t stop happening)
-Respawn and try to find the action again
Ended up going something like 8-20, and was the last kill of the match that ended with us losing 49-50. Profanities were screamed at max volume, and I quit the game and left my girls on their own; I was not in any state to play a single match more. The frustration & rage carried over to offline, and before you know it I was having a full-blown mental breakdown over everything else in my life (rough life stuff’s going on, but it’s irrelevant here; just know that I’ve been through a lot and I’m trying to recover.)
The worst part is? I don’t even like the Tenrai set. I’m not really into samurai at all, and seeing that the core gets next to no customization, even after grinding like a maniac for it? The colors red and blue locked behind the store? Nah, I’m writing off this whole event. This whole thing is literally negative fun: its inclusion makes the game noticeably worse of an experience. Keep your weeby garbage and give me my challenge slot back.
