So i’ve been browsing the Waypoint forum, and i’ve realized theres nothing but bashing and crying, nothing but complaints and whining. I’m here to say the opposite.
343, i think you did ASTOUNDING! From the second i looked at the box, and how unique it was, the inner case, the envelopes, handwritten notes, it was all amazing. I new this game would rock, then i jumped into forge and tested some things out, absolutely everything ran smoothly, i didnt even look at the controller scheme and i knew what every button did after 5 minutes. IT flows so perfectly, its a much higher pace and keeps things new and refreshing. I absolutely love it. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. From the new sounds, to the oh so glorious music. It was been a wonderful experience so far.
Now to address the community, from the complaints ive read here is the facts behind it…
“Grenades not as strong”
To me it sounds like you’ve only played Reach and want the mini-nukes that kill if you’re missing 10% shields, whereas here, the grenades are just like halo 2 and 3! He who said “the grenades are useless” They’re not meant to kill everyone, theyre meant to bank corner, to take shields off, meant for proper placement not throw and pray.
HAHAHA Matchmaking sucks? Or you are so terrible at the game you blame 343?
“My rank is stuck and bugged!!”
Well, gee, that sucks, but hey, not everything can be perfect, i guarantee 343 will fix it soon. They actually CARE
“I wish bungie made it”
Yeah, cuz they’re last creation Reach was oh so epic right? And they didnt even wanna make any more halo’s after halo 2…
“halo is cod”
Yeah, hence the reason they all die after one shot, headshots dont matter, AR wins all, and a melee insta kills. Uhm… Where’s the CoD again?
Ohhh the kill-cam?? Hmm… CoD didnt do that first, cant be that…
The classes you can make? Wait… we cant start with rockets snipe or shotguns… only rifle’s that take skill… Hmm… Where’s CoD again…?
Point is, i love 343, i love this game, and yes, it may take some getting used to for some, but dont whine about it and cry. Learn, adjust, and get with the times. Halo needed a new direction, and 343 has delivered. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
And i’ll see you all at war games training.
