Playlist consolidation plan.

This is a playlist consolodation plan a friend of mine came up with. I thought I’d leave it here for all to see and consider.

>

>
> This is a consolidation plan I feel hurts nobody but helps good connection. Infinity is not lost, rather toned down, except in its now pure playlist.*
>
> (Pro) at the end of a game mode is meaning there is both “default” and “pro” variants. Seeing “Pro” means there is only Pro (Exception to this in Team Objective Playlist.)
>
> If you aren’t happy, suggest what changes might be made. Along with this consolidation, I suggest all playlists carry a “none of the above” category in voting in the first and second rounds.

So do you agree/disagree? Personally I don’t think putting snipers into the Slayer/BTB playlists or getting rid of legendary quite yet. I think it’s annoying to merge all Objective gamemodes as well.

Other than that I don’t have a huge problem with it.

While I like some of the ideas put forth on that list I think it suffers a bit from over-consolidating some of the gametypes.

This (link) is what I’d like to see the War Games Playlist offering become.

A solid offering in my opinion. I would personally take it even further and shove Flood and Grifball into action sack, but that’s just me.

Perhaps, to add more variety, 343i could add a no personal ordnance variant to the deconsolidated Infinity slayer playlist. To add variety and at least a moderate amount of competition to the infinity slayer playlist.

This, hopefully to have a more smooth transition to a Halo 5 where personal ordnance will not grant power weapons or no PO at all. And where armor abilities are replaced by powerup/pickup variants.
