why has the sword location been changed since BETA? The sword being top middle has always been very appropriate because it is the most vulnerable spot on the map. Getting the sword at the initial push of the game is quite difficult when it is top middle, but now the gameplay and flow of truth has changed completely since the swords location is simply bottom carbine. I couldn’t believe this when i first saw it. I find that because the plasma caster is much less dangerous, especially on a small map like truth, it is often overlooked completely until maybe mid-game. I’ve seen some people use it well but it seems like the weakest of the new power weapons. I would prefer to just have the sword and no plasma caster, that would be ideal.
the sword is clearly the dominant weapon on this map. why is the location and respawn time of the plasma caster listed on screen but the sword isn’t? this doesn’t seem friendly for old or new halo fans. I’m really not in favor of the respond system anyway, but why exclude the sword from the list of noteworthy power weapons that spawn? id rather be told when the sword is coming up than the plasma caster, you do not need the plasma caster to control this map.
does anyone else feel the same? or do you prefer the sword spawn being at bottom carbine now?
also, as another point of reference, everyone i play truth with is having a horrible time telling the difference between (what was once) pink tower and carbine tower. they look very similar and it is a constant confusion for most of those i play with. we are constantly making the wrong call outs and are just confused because 1.pink tower isn’t pink, not even close and 2. carbine and pink look the same, and theres carbines on both towers now?! why not just put a carbine on one side then i would know (for instance). this map is OK but these things seem to be problematic.
