Im so happy to hear 343 is going to go back to making matchmaking maps and not campaign matchmaking maps… I think matchmaking needs to go to example halo 3 but just updates and thrown on steriods for better words… Please make us kick a@@ maps again 343 and unleash a crap load of dlc maps to keep halo rollin.
Glad to hear you’re excited about Halo 4.
However, the Matchmaking section of the boards is for “the current state of Halo Matchmaking”, and Halo 4’s not out yet. I’m moving this to the Halo 4 section, where you’ll probably get more replies.
whatever you do 343, DO NOT ship the crappiest maps with the game, and then dlc great looking maps a month after release. (reach) What usually happens is people will drop a boring game long before the dlc arrives. Don’t sand bag. Bring It.
Wraparound and Warhouse both look awesome, and I know that 343i has been working hard to make great maps.
super happy to see 343 going the right way with MM maps …
If nothing else, I have faith that the maps are going to be good. I read an article that said Wraparound went through three iterations before they settled on the current one.
I agree fully with OP, re-using maps is just cheap and will never work, it’s excusable for an indie game/low budget title, but for a AAA-title like Halo it’s cheap, it’s worse then CoD even and makes me sick :&
Multiplayer ain’t campaign or firefight and does not play like them, anyone who got any idea how a game is made knows that and would never try to re-use maps. Such a simple thing as AIs are very stupid, and hence the maps have to be (aka simple) for the AI to manage, while people playing multiplayer are a lot smarter, and can handle “advanced” maps.
However, it’s good to see that 343i knows their things and will not make a cheap excuse for a game like Bungie, that they take some pride in their work and maybe, just maybe, when Halo 6 is released we’ll beg to play Wraparound and the other again since they were so good
