This is in regards to Team Throwdown.
(To any 343i employees reading this, please note I’m not trying to outright request anything, just take what is written below into consideration).
Currently it’s supposed to be the current classic-esque playlist. Stripped down gameplay, static weapon spawns, no random stuff, gametypes as similar as they can get to the old school stuff.
But in reality it’s MLG 2.0. You hired a former MLG player (BravoMLG) and it seems contracted another former MLG player/Forger(GH057ayame) to make the maps/game types.
That’s cool and all but I never liked playing MLG playlists to begin with. And apparently a vast majority of us don’t since at peak times it can barely draw in over 800 people.
The thing is, I don’t want to play MLG 2.0 at all. I want to play something similar to Social/Team Slayer from Halo 3. Why? Because they had slayer and objectives meshed together. They were simple and predictable. You never had a random camo dude sniping you and his buddy flying up and hitting you with rockets.
From who you’ve been throwing your money at, the changes they have made reflect what they are and their history. But my problem is I feel like a little child stuck between two divorcing parents and no one is paying attention to what we really want while you all are projecting what you think we want onto us.
How about you hire some people who have played the game forever but never played competitively? I’m thinking they know more what the social people want over the MLG people you hired. But you know what? I would work for free if it meant restoring at least some part of this game to what Halo used to be. I already know how far it is to drive to the 343i studio and would gladly give my two cents.
But at the moment a proper TU and making a good beta playlist for a good social/competitive’ish playlist would be great as well. I just want old CTF, assault and oddball. Hell VIP would be nice too.
To clarify a few things I will spell it out here.
The disturbing thing about that is all the classic content we are getting is tailored to pro’s when they are the minority. I’m not saying they should be ignored; no, they should have their playlist. But they’ve had two playlists built for them so far and we haven’t even had our classic playlist yet.
