You konw, the one where thee camera showcases four spartans emoting before a match? There just seems to be a like of bugs and glitches around it and doesn’t support any progressive functions. If they had a customization for what emote we could do, there may be a chance. But so far, it bugs out with camera angles and just freezes the screen in multiplayer, forge, and custom matches.
If they wanted to showcase player’s spartans, just span the camera to a wide angle with all of them in it. If not, its really fidgety.
It’s not a loading screen as the game loads the map and everything before starting the screen.
The point of it is to show off everyone’s customization in the hopes to incentivize players to say “oh wow, that looks cool, I better go buy it” when seeing other player armors. Pretty common tactic in monetized F2P games.
Same reason you see everyone’s weapon stuff when picking up their gun.
Personally it has the opposite effect here, I find those annoying enough it drives me from playing the game.
I realize this, I know mqny f2p games do similar things. But their showcase design is still a buggy mess and doesnt support custom games and many forge creations. As why I said, if they wanted to showcase player’s spartans, the showcase should be more of a simple wideshot or maybe a camera spanning lineup.
It’s definitely not a loading screen. The game is fully loaded in once the sequence plays… well it is for sure on anything other than the x1. I did notice when I first would play at launch on my x1 that it would usually show the game once the sequence plays. It would skip the map intro sometimes, but usually played the full Spartan team intro. So the game should technically be loaded once the intro plays sooo… yeah not a loading screen.
