forum not the real population myth

Why do i keep hearing that the people here dont represent the actual population every time someone wants a more “halo” experience? Everywhere i go where it be work,the gym, or even get togethers we all miss the days where a social and visible ranked selection, weapon and camo pickups etc. and none of them are on the forums. Even people ive never met anywhere i go agree. Its everywhere. Granted these people are all 20 and above but i had to throw this out there.

Most of the other people who don’t come on the forums are just casual players and could care less what is put in or taken out or changed they just buy it and play whatever they are given so the forum population is all that really matters anyways. Plus the people who arn’t on here who want Original Halo style back.

It has played out many times, people scream and cry on the forum for the inclusion of something or the removal of something.

Then it happens and the population dispersal shows almost the exact opposite reaction in game. One of the most glaring recent examples was the TU in Reach.

Here’s an explanation.

Tu in reach helped only a little. Halo 4 still doesn’t have team slayer. Plus when things come up months later and they throw them in a playlist with a strange name toward the bottom of the list its already too late. Make a team slayer playlist and put it on top and watch it thrive. Not mlg settings just team slayer.

With the exception of the only BTB playlist in the Reach, every single TU playlist was the absolute worst populated playlist in Reach.

And the whole “if its on top its obviously going to be the most popular” theory is proven wrong in every single instance of online Halo currently.

Its not true in Halo 3, Reach or Halo 4, please feel free to verify that for yourself.

What’s weird is that the default settings for Reach worked better in BTB. Even people who hated AL would admit that it wasn’t as bad in BTB. Cross mapping with the DMR was less of a problem due to the bloom, and Halo 4 has shown the result of lowering it to nothing.

I wait to see what 343 will do with the DMR in Halo 4.

There will be an insane amount of irony if 343 ends up adding bloom or some sort of nerf to the Halo 4 DMR after what they did to Reach’s DMR.

343i: “We listen to the self-titled ‘True Halo gamers’ and gave them what they wanted, and now they’re angry about it!?”

They didnt give halo gamers what they want. They add tiny little bits in from what we want months after release. Its little getting mauled in a head on collision but only putting one band aid on. 343 knows how to word things to trick people. Just like now when they add a ranking system way too late and not in game they will say that they tried a ranking system but it wasnt that popular so they didnt even bother with one for halo 5.

Dang right they didn’t give us what we wanted. We wanted a 1-50 ranking system. AND WE STILL DON’T HAVE IT!
