Our visions for Halo Xbox One online.

When you choose the xbox live option, you should see this -

Ranked -

Rumble pit

Slayer and Slayer BR’s only. I was sick of seeing Swords and Juggernaut in a skilled based playlist in Halo 3. I also think FFA oddball is too random to be in a skill based playlist.

Team Slayer

Team Slayer and Team Slayer BR’s. Standard Team Slayer should make us start with Assault rifles only. Other weapons should be on maps. This is would make the old Halo feel return. No stupid DMR’s spoiling map movement.

Team Snipers

Back to standard team snipers. That Promethean sniper should stay out of ranked games. Online Spartan or Elite style snipers.

Big Team Battle

A mix of BTB Slayer, BTB CTF, BTB assault.

Team Objective

Capture the flag, Oddball, assault and king of the hill.

Team Doubles

2v2 Slayer, oddball or capture the flag on close quarters maps.

Team MLG and MLG FFA.

Foar teh 1337 pl4y3rs.

Social -

Lone wolves.

A collection of FFA slayer, oddball, juggernaught etc.

Social slayer

Social Team slayer.

Social objective

Team objective but not ranked.

Infection

Rocket race

I miss this.

Griftball

Random weekend playlist for teh lulz.

Custom games

Nothing more to say than plzzzzz 343 just give us back the Halo 3 style customs and forge and we’ll be happy.


Ranking system -

I think the ranks should be 1-50 in ranked playlists. Then we should have an EXP count that we can get up regardless of what playlists we play on ranked, social or campaign, and it unlocks cool helmets and other things.

Maps -

We need more close quarters maps. I’d also like to see Headlong return for BTB, Terminal and Turf return as medium maps, and also I’d love to see Lockout back.

BRING BACK DUEL WIELDING

I really miss this. I can understand why Bungie switched from SMG starts to Assault rifle starts, but I think we should still have the option to find an SMG and duel wield it with something. I miss that.

No ordinances, specialisations and other stupid crap in ranked playlists.

I’m not saying there should be absolutely no variety in rank playlists, but we need to get rid of these things if we want a competitive environment again.

Flood/Survival mode idea

I’d love it if there was a custom game type similar to horde mode in Gears of War. I know we have firefight, but this is different.

You get to play with a bunch of your friends against increasingly difficult waves of flood, zombies and other types of stuff. It would be really amazing fun.

Imagine you and your 15 friends, all screaming trying to defend a castle against scary -Yoink- monsters? lol!

Exactly what I want to see! Have a Thanks for writing such a great post.

Additional - Invasion - Ranked
Dominion - Ranked but maybe social. (Both with capacity to be combined playlist if needed)

Apart from that you’ve achieved perfection.

Thanks for your reply. Any more suggestions?

Question: Why is Lone Wolves a “Social” playlist?

Because that’s what I believe it should be. Too many random and unskilled playlists for ranked.

I think you may have Lone Wolves and Rumble Pit backwards.

No. Rumble pit was the original ranked FFA playlist. It was all just slayer or slayer BR’s against people of the same sort of rank.

Lone Wolves started including things like Juggernaut and Oddball which I don’t think should be a FFA playlist.

How was Lone Wolves “random and unskilled”?

If anything, Lone Wolves was easily the most skillful playlist due to how it forced you to get off your party chat and contribute and immerse yourself into the game.

Juggernaut, swords, ninja ball - Aren’t these reasons enough?

Rumble Pit is like Lone Wolves except Slayer only, and that’s the way, in my opinion, it should be. Skill based, competitive, no randomness.
