Stat Reset on November 6?

I would like, if possible, to get an official clarification on this from 343. There are many people already playing Halo 4 legitimately. Press staff {including myself} and other players. We all have different Spartan levels, Service Records, stats, etc. which you can consider an advantage over other players who will get the game on November 6. With that in mind, are you planning to reset all stats to 0 at launch?

I hope you can answer this (private message is fine by me if you see it a better way), thank you very much in advance.

They haven’t commented on it yet, hopefully we will get an official response soon.
