Hi Halo forum community!
Well this will be my first thread in a while, my last one discussed imbalance from memory and before that I discussed AA (or something similar) however today I’d like to discuss this idea of ‘Haters’ and fair representation.
Now I won’t start my thread by saying ‘recently as you know’ as that phrase is increasingly growing on my nerves instead let me just say this: Haters. This has become quite a common term on the forums and the idea is quickly spreading that it is:
-Haters against Blind fanboys
-Competitive MLGs against Casual armour lock users
-Us against Them
But I thought we were on the same side? No? Ok then. As a wise thread once said: ‘perhaps we all need to clam down’. However there have already been several threads about ‘lets have a calm friendly discussion’ and even more like ‘HATERS SHUT UP!’ so I’ll cut right to the chase.
Both sides are Halo players. Both sides have an opinion which deserves to be heard without any prejudice and both sides really need to start realising that they want different Halos. That’s right you read correctly: Different Halos. Whilst many people are trying to argue that both sides should just make up and that the community should not be split I disagree. It has become quite clear that forcing the community to come together and designing a game for everyone is not fair to either side and is simply not working.
So why not just have separate playlists for the different communities. Split Halo into:
Reach style playlists with AA
Classic Halo with the same amount of playlists as the one above
Community - Fan made maps, weekend and monthly bonuses, action sack ect
This way the Classic core Halo fans get the game we want whilst those who prefer AA get what they want as well. Everyone deserves an opinion however until we learn how large the Classic playlist will be we neither side can complain that the ‘other side’ is ruining Halo.
However having said that, if the classic playlist is small or non-existent like it is in Reach; expect a lot of complaining and hate -far more than now, especially seeing as I will start to join in.
So there it is, a ‘stop the pointless arguing’ thread with a difference. As always I have designed my thread to inspire thought so please feel free to post any comments or thoughts you have below -in a reasonable manor. Oh and by all means both sides continue discussion but lets just clam down and please keep the fish puns to a minimum
