The answer to everyone’s problems. Take Halo Reach’s concept of ‘The Arena’ and make it exclusive to two of three main playlists in Halo 4 (Them being Standard and Classic). Judging your performance after every 10 matches, you will be placed into a League, similar to Reach’s Iron, Bronze, Silver, etc, except with 343’s own twist to differentiate it from Halo Reach. This will also encourage newer players to try their hardest to earn a high-tier title for bragging rights and such.
I’d imagine it being five tiers:
The standard Halo 4 50-rank EXP based system will always be present, except a symbol representing your current tier will be visible right beside it. For example:
COLONEL(Progression Sys.) - RECLAIMER(Tier)
Three Main Playlists:
-Vanilla Halo 4 with all features that shipped with the game. Would include MLG modes optimized for the Halo 4 sandbox. Perfect for players in search of a fresh new Halo experience.
-No Armor Abilities, Loadouts, Ordnance, Specializations, or boosts. Plain old Halo. This playlist would include its own unique MLG option. Perfect for those hungry for a competitive experience echoing the original games.
-As mentioned, it would include everything you would come to expect from the whacky side of Halo. Perfect for those in search of a good time with no worries.
I just want there to be something that can satisfy everyone’s play styles since there has been so much controversy over the game’s new additions. Keeping everyone happy.
