*edit: It has come to the attention that I may have a biased poll. If you feel we should keep the drops all together, please make your opinion known in the comments below*
I have been a halo player and fan since 2003, and have been on the bandwagon since. It seems as if we are struggling to keep together a community of people, with more and more people disappearing daily.
A lot can be said about these problems, but this is just one of those opinions:
The Ordinance Drop: what is it, and why is it here?
The Ordinance Drop system is a new system aboard the UNSC Infinity in which weapons, grenades, power-ups, and even armor abilities can be dropped into the battle zone to assist players. One can fill their ordinance meter by doing a few in game tasks (mostly killing or assisting other spartans).
Please, for the sake of your game, and for the sake of the games thereafter: Increase the Ordinance Drop Meter by double, Create a classic playlist, or remove it completely from all non big team battle playlists.
It is strangling your game.
I can't walk around the map without running into an IC (Incineration Cannon), Sniper Rifle, Rocket Launcher, Sticky Detonator, and Railgun all at the same time, and thats on a 4v4 Infinity playlist.
You (343) have fed this game to help all 'new and comers', and have done nothing different with this game with the exception of closing the skill gap. Making the more skilled players feeling more and more frustrated, and less likely to pick up the game again after the TU in February.
I will always try and play the halo series, but you're making it difficult to enjoy it through multiplayer interactions.
