Seriously, the addition of sprint, loudouts, perks, ordinance, instant spawn, killcams, and all the rest of the CoD features doesn’t bother.
It’s the fact that these features replaced a lot of the old features and a lot of the old features were simply removed for no reason.
Right now, I have an itch to play a true Halo game. A real, true Halo game that fixes the issues of its predecessors and evolves on its own.
That game exists at Halo 4’s core. But too many features were removed and now the game seems like a shell of it’s former self.
Right now, at this exact moment, I’m in the mood for Team Slayer. I want to spawn with the same load out as everyone else, I want there to be set weapons on the map that spawn at set intervals, and I want there to be a 5 second spawn time with NO kill cam.
At the end of the match, I want to progress in rank if I win and lose rank if I lose. I want this data compiled into a 1-50 or some alternative system that can show you how much your skill is either improving or degrading compared to other players.
This gametype, Team Slayer, does not exist. And until it does, I will not be buying the season pass or any future DLC.
This is not entitlement. This is business. With a Halo game, there are certain aspects I expect to remain the same.
With the evolution and innovation that a new game brings, 343 should be trying to add additions to the gameplay that set it even farther apart from the rest of the mainstream games. Not adapt to be more like them.
I see your population is dwindling and will probably continue to do so until you add classic gametypes and bring the game back to its roots.
You should have focused on taking the game in a new direction rather than trying to become more like a modern shooter. I imagine that after 5 years of the same rehashed crap, many CoD players would enjoy a breath of fresh air more than a game that tries too hard to be like CoD.
So 343, you have 2 choices. Make more money, or make less money. The choice is yours.
