a message first to everyone reading this. I have noticed a lot of people staying after the halo defiant map pack codes got released. the halo waypoints before the codes got released was cival unlike Bnet where some few players found haven and talked civally about halo and everything halo and i hope we continue this tradition so keep it clean in this thread or else BS angel and her ban… well i know its not a hammer… ban sword? well that explains what the BS in BS angel means. getting back on topic keep it clean on this thread.
now many people like me have been hopeing for a title update to raise the skill gap and fix bugs, first i want to say about what i think(my opinion) should be in a title update.
first of all this is a given which is bug fixes to the game fixing issues in multiplayer and campaign that make the game annoying. like right now the defiant map pack has a few bugs that need fixing
the next thing i would like to talk about is the ban system which right now does nothing at all to stop whats going on. first thing is the AFK ban, right now it does nothing to stop the problem caused by the credit system. people just come back as soon as they get un-banned and AFK again ruining the experience for other people. my solution, give it a two strikes your out system, first time you get a 20 minute ban and a warrning saying what you did and the next punishment will be more severe, second time you get a hour ban, and demoted 2 ranks and lose credits you gained from the game you AFK’d in and any points from a challenge you completed that day. i bellive this would stop AFK’ing if not make it far less occuring
second ban thing is the quit ban, right now does nothing but IMO shouldnt be changed, BUT people should be able to join a game where somebody quit, IMPORTANT NOTE: the person who left if replaced loses their stats from that game and if they got a commondation that game go back to where they were before the game. this would defeniately help a lot of us
now betrayel system needs to change, right now getting option to boot or not is random but here is what i propose, it is random it you get betrayed when you dont have a power weapon for that map but if you DO have a power weapon for the map and get betrayed you get immediate option to boot
next on my list is spawn killing, their needs to be a change to the spawn system to make it you wont spawn if a enemy is near your spawn point, because lets face it your screwed anyway after loseing the power weapons and vehicals. you should have a chance to fight back because right now it’s just cheap kills.
now time for bloom. good concept but right now rewards spammers so this is what should happen. make the bloom increase bigger and make the decrease time shorter to speed up kill times but make it so that AR beats DMR every time in close range combat. i really right now dont see a reason for it to be based on randomness and reward spammers at all besides help unskillfull people, and it’s not that hard for people to pace shots so it wouldnt make it hard for new people to get used to the game.
AL in it’s current state is just ridiculous, dominateing mele is just really ridiculous in my opinion and breaks the system. useing it to put off dieing is just really stupid and in most cases becomes a reinforcements button to have teamates help you.
those are my points and i think just doing the first five things i sugested would bring back a lot of players because DLC as awesome and cool as maps are dosent change these issues like betraying for power weapons and AFKing. if 343 does decide to do this and generated enough hype for it the population would zoom right back up.
these are my points, keep it clean.
P.S thank you 343 for haveing actuall employes and developers read and respond on the forum
