Why was Assault removed???

Hey All,

First, I apologize if this is a stupid question, I try to keep up with all of the news that gets released, but honestly with all the changes they made in the summer preview for Arena I got fed up with trying to follow the changes. But, I noticed they seemed to have completely removed Assault from Team Arena and I was wondering why or if I was just getting unlucky and it just wasn’t popping up when I played, but it’s been days… I am kind of annoyed they removed it if that is what happened, I mean it added a good variety to Team Arena, plus as a company leader it is annoying to still have commendations to get in Assault when it is no longer playable.

On the same note, it seems they also removed Tyrant from Team Arena all together, both the Assault and CTF variant… I mean, can 343 not make up their stupid little minds what they want??? UGH!

It wasn’t good enough for the pros, so everyone else is no longer able to play it either. It’s a shame because 42% of the Team Arena playlist is now made up of Team Slayer, and I’m also sad to see Tyrant removed.

> As a note, extensive testing was done with the Assault game type, and at this time it has been determined that the game type could use some extra tuning before being integrated into Pro League play.

I am sure that when Assault comes back it will be better than it was before. We just got to be patient.

Thank you Lukeo, I appreciate the info and I agree it sucks that Team Arena is now mostly just slayer and for me it seems mostly Strongholds. I really hope they bring back Tyrant and Assault soon.
