Wow …I just read what they said. I’ll admit, I’m a little surprised but a little confused too. Does this mean this site is going bye bye? Or just the forums? Also, if someone has a problem now with bugs, crashes, etc where do there go?
I have ZERO faith in most social media. I actually hate it. I think social media does WAY more harm then good in society. This all said, I highly doubt I’ll be joining discord, so this means my Halo forums days are over. I was there on bungie.net for years and here as well. Had many spirited talks. Maybe I’ll change my mind and give discord a try, who knows… But in MY Opinion, it doesn’t seem like 343I and MS really listen to us anyways…I’m sorry to say this, but it’s how I feel I can give countless and countless of examples as to why I think this. Yeah from time to time, sure they do…but overall, no.
Perfect example, these Halo surveys that they hand out are only for Americans…news flash, you have…or had, LOTS of Halo fans outside of America.
Game modes like firefight, doesn’t matter what type of firefight you like, ODST, reach, H5 has always been immensely popular. The fact it wasn’t even in Halo 4 is a mind-boggling decision AND the fact that it didn’t even launch with H5 and was only put in because we the fans were yelling at them every second and asking " so is firefight going to be out in? It hasn’t even been talked about in the current game which is even more perplexing!! But I digress here.
I’ll still play Halo from time to time. I’ve been playing since CE, so a long time… and I’ll always love Halo!! Especially 1-3!! nothing can beat those days!! LAN parties! Midnight line ups, great campaign stories, the music…THE EPIC MUSIC!! Those amazing ranked slayer matches!! (Still no ranked team slayer playlist in Infinite!!! …unreal!!!) And some amazing fun maps to name just a few things. Those memories will never go away nor will mine that I have of the forums either! I know it may sound strange to some, but I actually have a lot of good memories with the forms … but I think my days of supporting this franchise under the current developer (I know leadership has changed now so we’ll see what the future brings…) are moreless done I’m sorry to say. I think I have just been denying it and holding out hope that things would change with infinite and I know they will get better, But it’s too little too late I think… and as strange as this might sound, Halo waypoint shutting down is the final nail in the coffin for me.
The decisions that 343I made, not just with this game, But especially this game are again perplexing!! It’s too bad because the gameplay in Halo Infinite is really good!!! But massive damage has been done to this franchise…and I hope things turn around one day.
So if I don’t join discord, it’s been fun everyone. Good luck on whatever social media you use, playing, in life and everything else! And perhaps I’ll see you on the battlefield from time to time. If so, don’t be afraid to shoot me a message
Good hunting everyone
