Halo as a game and a series is held to a very high standard set by previous games. What’s happening now is Activision and EA tiers of scummy. 343’s reputation is gonna take a huge hit as a result and it won’t recover if they continue down this path.
I don’t even understand the logic and reasoning behind their decision. Surely someone in 343 must have thought that this was a horrible idea and that they would receive heavy backlash from their loyal fanbase. It’s either that or they really did intend for all this to abuse our loyalty. I don’t know about you but this is incredibly disrespectful. They know we’ll always come through for them but this is just scumbaggish.
I’d like to have something to work towards at a sensible pace on my own time than this battle pass. Right now there’s no reason to play after reaching Onyx rank and the game is loaded with hackers and aimbotters. The burnout is heavy due to the battle pass and this event was something I was really looking forward to but it turned out to be a huge letdown as we can’t complete it in a week but they plan to stretch it out over 6 months. Not only is it predatory and false advertising but it’s also grindy and the cosmetics aren’t even that good.
The best progression system Halo ever had was with Halo Reach and the worst is definitely Halo Infinite.
