2 had the best multiplayer glitches, followed by 1
3 had, by far, the best spartan customization, and imo the best multiplayer ranking system
ODST had the only good firefight, and an overall really chill vibe to it
2 and ODST had the only fun non-117 campaign missions
4, 5 and reach were all relatively awful

I've played with /hg/ but I don't post with my gt.
Well fuck that then. I'll do it when I get bored.
No, I just want to doxx you and destroy your online reputation, you raging faggot.
>Puni Ana DX
Just googled it, fucking ew mate. No wonder nobody wants you. Fucking autist
>I just want to doxx you and destroy your online reputation
>posts yandere girl
Is that a yes?
Maybe, post GT so we can play together
I dont have to jerk of with my hand, Im in a relationship.
Sounds a little too risky Mr. Doxxer.
Im here to shitpost and play with you guys. It doenst change the fact that Im in realtionship and you arent. Can you hug your Puni Ana ? Can it kiss you and make compliments how good youre in halo? I dont think so anon.
>Im a douche who pays everything instead of splitting everything 50/50
OK anon. Enjoy your hand and imagination.
My waifu is better than your relationship will ever be.
search your heart you know this is true
>one faps to some plastic
>one gets blowjobs and hugs for free
>YOU ARE ALSO PATHETIC JUST LIKE ME HURR !!!1
Its ok dude, Im not judging.
Im happy for your imaginary relationship anon, I really am. I bet your parents and family loves to interact with her :)
If you measure yourself by the chick you're fucking, that's fine. The fact you're sharing it with us though is very telling. But if you're happy, you'd definitely be the first I've seen. Congrats.
Now fuck off normie :)
>he thinks the affection is bought
lol anon, you are pathetic if you think you can buy someone affection and love.
I was not sharing anything exept calling you an autist for buying some plastic to cum in it. And then I told you that I dont need to fap because Im in a realtionship. Your argument makes no sense anon.
>Now fuck off normie :)
>bitter normalfag detected
>I HAVE NO ARGUMENT SO ILL CALL YOU A NORMIE REEEE
Like being a normie is something bad, you autists will never ever learn. Just sad t.b h.
I do, anon. Thanks for your concern tho :)
>tfw I own a toy and am in a relationship
They aren't mutually exclusive you know, its very easy to have both. Waving your relationship around to shame others makes you look like a douche though.
A note though, my onahole has never complained that I'm not paying attention to it because I'm playing Halo
>I was not sharing anything exept calling you an autist for buying some plastic to cum in it.
That's why you are a normie. And yet I bet you're totally on board with your gf fucking herself with a piece of plastic because your dick isn't enough for her lol.
>s-she said she was a virgin
kek studies show women lie dramatically about their sexual pasts. She's touched other cocks bro.
>implying they don't exist
I wouldn't expect the majority of /hg/ to know much about women, though. Y'all seem more of the "Supreme Gentleman" type.
He gets it
>kek studies show women lie dramatically about their sexual pasts
I know you haven't popped any cherries, anon, but trust me, you can tell when you do.
No, is Tito a qt3.14? Maybe he can be my bf.
>I know you haven't popped any cherries, anon, but trust me, you can tell when you do.
Lol sure thing buddy. Besides sucking a man's cock and letting him cum on your face doesn't pop their cherry. Face it you're kissing the lips that kissed another man's cock and drank his cum.
You are a cuck in denial.
>Waving your relationship around to shame others makes you look like a douche though.
Anon Im sorry if I bothered you it wasnt my intention. I was just saying that having an onhole is awkward.
>A note though, my onahole has never complained that I'm not paying attention to it because I'm playing Halo
Well my boyfriend would be giving me a blowjob while Im playing halo :)
>That's why you are a normie. And yet I bet you're totally on board with your gf fucking herself with a piece of plastic because your dick isn't enough for her lol.
Im pretty sure he doenst,lol
>kek studies show women lie dramatically about their sexual pasts
Fortunately I knew him since Im 7 and was always with him in a class and his best friend. He was a virgin when we started dating and so was I.
Its not for buying something you like its for buying like an onahole.
Try to tell your friends and close ones that you bought it
"Hey guys I just bought an onhalo to jizz in some plastic"
>I bet your parents and family loves to interact with her :)
>Try to tell your friends and close ones that you bought it
lol you're a fag and you said this shit. I'm sure your dad was ecstatic hearing you take it up the butt.

>All the data confirms that all women are sluts
Lel, you still don't realize how pathetic that kind of attitude is.
It's funny how, despite the fact that every woman is a sex-crazed cheat-machine, you've still never managed to get laid.
>what is hypergamy
Reminder that this graphic has been confirmed by studies and data from tindr, okcupid etc.
Not that anon, but...
I wouldn't say all women are sluts. But i would say that 97% of women that are gonna date someone on this website have had another man's semen on their face. My wife probably included. My ex girlfriends definitely included.
Well considering data shows that women think most men are ugly. sure.
>your grenade will never be the mini nuke your opponents have

>But to believe that every/an overwhelming majority of women are cock-hungry sex-fiends ready to date men just for the thrill of cheating on them
nice strawman, when did I ever say that? I said women are sluts which you seem to agree with.
Did you just get triggered by the fact that the vast majority of women you will ever meet will have had another man's cum on their face and cock in their mouth?
It's pretty easy. Probably the same way she loves a man who has had pussy juices dripping off his lips.
Ahh, I see what you're saying anon. I don't think women are like that either.
>aiming at someone from a good distance
>lining up the shot
>they snap to me, fire a shitload of AR bullets

Getting hit should only drop your ADS/make you stop sprinting if your shield is down. The shield should absorb the bullet's impact, thus causing no pain
>when did I ever say that?
>Reminder that any woman you meet has had another man's cum on her face.
Does it trigger you when someone figures out you're an ugly, autistic, basement-dwelling piece of trash who goes around trying to find studies to prove to himself that women are sluts?
I found that out the other day, Its crazy how many gullible people post here.
Since when does a simple fact like I stated mean "cock-hungry sex-fiends ready to date men just for the thrill of cheating on them" that was what you inferred. Obviously you can't handle the simple fact that the vast majority of women have had another man's cum on their face.
>Does it trigger you when someone figures out you're an ugly, autistic, basement-dwelling piece of trash
lol no because I'm not but nice ad hominem.
You wanna really rile people up?
>calling others homo
But you are homo?
Nah man, you wanna really piss some folks off?
Why is he so handsome?
Didnt know that, that means shitposting for everybody!
Its 2015 dude
shitposting pretty much
Any warzone lobbies going? If not I'll host one.
Message my gt: Dont Fire here
We could also look for skulls in campaign or Intel, or big team battle ,hell anything would be good. We're a party of 2 already.
Nah, this is how you really trigger some autists
Fred doesn't approve of cheif's transition and admits to being a pedophile so Kelly and Linda who are in a lesbian relationship beat him up and the group leaves him on a remote forerunner isntallation.
>admits to being a pedophile
I always did ship him with the S-III gals
Chief, of course, gets the prime pick: Kelly, Linda, Cortana, Palmer, etc.
Arbiter gets every Elite woman. Except for Rtas, who's rolling around with that waifu chick.
I never said it isn't large, but saying it's not useful is foolish. It's still enough to turn high-level games into crouchwalking standstills.
What do you not consider small?
They are small. When you can sprint across them in about 3 seconds. If there was no sprint they'd be acceptable. I don't dislike small maps, but with the new mobility mechanics small maps feel tiny.

I think 343 are a bunch of faggots and literally turn even gold they touch into dogshit, but they streamline map making to a new level in video games.
If they weren't in bungie/halo shadow, their Forge would go down in video game history
I don't want to go full autism, but here it goes.
You know how two seater bikes have two sets of handle bars?
Well imagine both people being able to direct the bike where they want it go without it interfering with the others movements.
They can do this and the bike still operates how you would expect it to under a single pilot while not ignoring eithers input.
That's the closest analogy I can think of for allowing players the sandbox tools in a way that won't interfere with the engine and restrictions created by that engine.
If it matters at all, I have a degree in CS. It doesn't mean I know jack shit, but it does say I have a slight interest in this.
I played a game of this when Reach came out and something fucked up the physics and one team went spiraling out of the map at 100mph+....
I don't think I've ever laughed harder in my life
I'm bad at games so you must be right! The maps are huge! The ability to sprint and clamor shouldn't inform the size of the maps at all! Good argument, you really showed me. I'm going to go get spawn killed 5 times on Truth because it's such a huge map.
Seriously though, if you don't think these maps are small you should probably go get your eyes checked. Or do you have some sort of rare brain disorder where you're unable to perceive the sizes of objects in a space?
With your ass backwards motorcycle analogy were you trying to imply that straight edged models is an engine restriction?
You can spawn with random weapons because of the different spawn points which are located in areas with different weapons.
That time I got a DMR. The next time I may get an energy sword & camo.
It's the best we got.
My god, how is it even possible, on a $60 AAA release that took (supposedly) 2 and a half years to develop, to have so many bugs, glitches, and missing content?
Every day I find something new. Be it a glitch, terrain bug, weapon bug... what. the. fuck
After my free month is up, I'm shelving it or selling it. Giant piece of turd
The cost of AAA games only increases as the tech increases and complexity goes up. I think for the level of detail the game is incredibly polished. This is why lots of companies have to persue other sources of revenue so they can devote the resources to create the best game they can, and as fans I think it's our job to support them.
TLDR: buy more packs
Last clip. There was a duck hunt map but I forgot to record anything. Shame because that remake is awesome. Sniper is OP as fuck though.
Don't say this anon :>(
It still has potential for good and fun customs.
>for the level of detail
All the water is two or more moving textures playing over top of a blue block, and at least in Warzone Assault you cannot interact with the water at all.
No splashing when shot, no splashing when a grenade explodes, not even any movement outside of the mentioned textures.
>use a legendary RP boost in Warzone
>halfway through the match the game disconnects
I found a group there and more people joined until some random faggot decided he wanted to play warzone and he took half the group.
/hg/ needs custom games nights. I look at my friends list and all I see is people playing by themselves. It doesn't have to be like this.
I miss the memesprouters.
I'm more interested in making/playing forge maps than I am interested in earning reqqles.
I don't think the majority of /hg/ would want to play normal gametypes on custom maps.
So is The Order ugly and unpolished since it doesn't show bullet holes in the doors?
>I don't think the majority of /hg/ would want to play normal gametypes on custom maps
Well it fooled my group for about 2 hours until they decided they wanted to play warzone instead.

ITS NOT PAY TO WIN THO
This pretty detailed if you ask me.
Better way to randomize aesthetics:
What about you get helmet, visor, and body armor tokens in packs instead of helmets? Each helmet or piece of armor costs 1 token and is sorted by rarity. For instance, an Uncommon Helmet Token will let you purchase any uncommon helmets that cost 1 token. Having 2 Ultra Rare body armor tokens will let you buy 2 pieces of armor of your choice that you want to customize with.
Though you can get Legendary armor tokens, the only way to get Mythic tokens is to beat the campaign on Legendary with at least 3 additional skulls, or achieving a particular rank in multiplayer (probably diamond or platinum). You can get as many of these Mythic tokens as you like, but you need to get to X rank in a playlist or beat the campaign with 3 skulls again to get them. Others you can find in packs.
This way we can at least choose our aesthetics and don't have to rely fully on the RNG for gear that we want.

Maybe try playing with teammates. People on here get together all the time to play Warzone and there's links in the OP to find others as well.
This game is far from pay to win if you actually know what the fuck you're doing and how to take down other vehicles.
Those points aren't lack of attention to detail, it's just laziness, mistakes and errors from 343.
It's seems you don't know what attention to detail means but that's ok. I agree with all your concerns though.
You can get everything you just mentioned for free though.
In fact, your chances of getting those things are the exact same as someone who buys Req packs
I think the implying here needs to be that you have no fucking idea what you're talking about
>In fact, your chances of getting those things are the exact same as someone who buys Req packs
It's literally impossible to have/use the best weapons and vehicles every game without paying.
A person who pays could use the best vehicle variants multiple times a game every game. I simply cannot without paying.
I think you're the very definition of retarded.
How are randomized packs that can give the same things to free purchases pay to win?
p2w would be that you could buy Scropions/high req weapons.
You could buy a gold pack for autism bucks, or I could buy a gold pack for RP and our chances at good shit would be the same
It's completely randomized, I could get 5 banshees out of a gold pack I spent RP on and you could get 0 Banshees out of a gold req you spent real world currency on.
If you don't like it go play Black Ops you fucking faggot
Fell asleep at my desk.
I was being nitpicky about the water since it just really bothered me for some reason.
I didn't really have a point since the water was the only thing I could bring up.
Something I do like is that bullet holes/marks persist indefinitely so I can draw something in the dirt, go to a req station and reload, and keep drawing because it's still there.
Because they can get more packs than me without ever having to play a game not using items moron.
Lol yes they can, now you're just denying facts. The fact that it's randomized doesn't change anything. They spend enough money they will have enough of every good item.
And they wouldn't have had to play games of warzone never using reqs.
>If you don't like it go play Black Ops you fucking faggot
Still in highschool?
Sorry but warzone is pay to win, maybe you don't care but it doesn't change that it's pay to win.
>tfw just played customs for 4 hours straight with randos
Twas a good feel. Some good ones out there already. Duck hunt, jenga, gaunlet, trash compactor, pacman, lava pit/butthole.
Customs and shenanigans are what makes halo great. We need more.
If two teams made of exactly equally skilled players except one team can spend $1000 on gold pack bundles were to play warzone which one has the advantage?
>inb4 other team could earn same items through playing
At a dramatically slower rate, so slow that they can't possibly use their items in every game. Meanwhile rich team could pay $1000 before every game and be freshly stocked with items.
>inb4 $1000 is too much money nobody would spend that much
Whatever it doesn't matter replace it with whatever you want, the principle is the same. There's also the fact that I've seen youtube vids of people blowing hundreds of dollars on packs, they objectively will have an advantage because they spent money.
>So statistically no, warzone is not pay to win.
>thinking this is proof
kek, are you dumb?
First off it's by definition pay to win, there isn't some threshold of advantage conferred by money that determines pay to win. Regardless paying money confers a fairly sizable advantage in warzone.
Your "proof" is specious, what would your win rate be if you spent hundreds of dollars on the game? Would it still be 57%?
As I said here >>127006537 teams that are equal in everything except money spent on game the advantage goes to the team that spent the money. PAY TO WIN
I'm not saying that paying dosh won't provide an advantage.
What I AM saying is that you don't understand what pay to win is.
Having the high level vehicles or weapons locked behind packs that require money could be considered pay to win, but when we all have access to the same chance at the same items regardless of the pace of which we can acquire them then it doesn't constitute pay to win.
What you're saying sounds true in paper but in practice is a completely different story. You're talking like if you pay enough you can spawn with power weapons and vehicles for the whole maytch, which you're definitely not able to because of the REQ level "cooldown" or whatever is called.
Second, it doesn't matter if you spawn with a level 9 legendary spartan laser because there's always the chance of getting killed by any decent player using a level 1 magnum, getting randomly splattered, etc.
Third, warzone is not meant to be a competitive mode, it's advertised as a mode where anything goes and anything can happen, you want 100% equal grounds for both teams? Go play arena.
>I'm not saying that paying dosh won't provide an advantage.
>What I AM saying is that you don't understand what pay to win is.
No you're the one who doesn't understand what pay to win is. Pay to win refers to games where spending money confers an advantage. Like warzone.
>regardless of the pace of which we can acquire them then it doesn't constitute pay to win.
Yes it does, time to earn points can function as a barrier to items. As I said given req rate and number of items it's impossible for me to use oni mantises, ultra banshees, nornfangs etc every game or multiple times per game.
Meanwhile some a rich anon or say a saudi prince could use those items every game multiple times per game. That is pay to win.
We can make one, playing TA atm.
So this is about you being butt mad about being poor, not about the reality of the game.
Get fucking good, and I'm tired of arguing with you. It's not pay to win.
It's like paying for the leather seats in a car instead of the pleather ones, It's the same fucking car and makes no god damn difference.
They even limited it to the shitter gametype mode that doesn't matter.
>Second, it doesn't matter if you spawn with a level 9 legendary spartan laser because there's always the chance of getting killed by any decent player using a level 1 magnum, getting randomly splattered, etc.
So because there is a chance of another player killing you it's not pay to win?
So if you're playing against the saudi prince I mentioned and he is spawning oni mantises and shit every game you play against him that's not an advantage?
Pay to win has never meant you spend $X and you get one win. It means spending money gives you an advantage over those who don't which is objectively true in warzone.
>Third, warzone is not meant to be a competitive mode, it's advertised as a mode where anything goes and anything can happen, you want 100% equal grounds for both teams? Go play arena.
How is this relevant to whether warzone is pay to win? I don't give a shit if you like warzone it's still pay to win.
I don't care about getting out-REQ'd I just find it annoying that people deny warzone is pay to win when it obviously is.
>it's not pay to win!
>you're just mad cause you're poor!
How's that work?
>It's like paying for the leather seats in a car instead of the pleather ones, It's the same fucking car and makes no god damn difference.
Haha, you just literally described a cosmetic difference which the vehicle variants are literally not cosmetic differences. Here is a more apt example
>It's like paying for the oni car instead of the basic car, It's the same fucking car except it has more armor and better weapons
>They even limited it to the shitter gametype mode that doesn't matter.
Again how is this relevant to whether or not it's pay to win?
I don't give a shit, just stop denying it's pay to win which it is :^)
you do realize that all the weapons and vehicles are balanced in a way so that nobody has an advantage over anybody else. I can take out a person using a rocket launcher with a pistol, just as I can take out a tank with a gungoose. Having a million Sniper Rifles means absolutely jack fucking shit if you aren't any good with it. Also, you are confirmed clinically retarded.
Pic related, it's you.
>you do realize that all the weapons and vehicles are balanced in a way so that nobody has an advantage over anybody else.
THE ONI/ULTRA VEHICLES OR OBJECTIVELY SUPERIOR
USING ONI/ULTRA VEHICLES EVERY GAME IS OBJECTIVELY AN ADVANTAGE
I CAN ONLY USE THESE EVERY GAME IF I SPEND MONEY
PAY TO WIN
Most of us post in other generals aswell.
>So if you're playing against the saudi prince I mentioned and he is spawning oni mantises and shit every game you play against him that's not an advantage?
That "advantage" means shit when you get better at this game and learn how to counter any vehicle or weapon. ONi mantis? Don't make me laugh, i've taken dozens of mantises and scorpions with common plasma pistols and splinter nades.
>I don't give a shit if you like warzone it's still pay to win.
Yeah? Well i don't give a shit if you don't like warzone. It's not pay to win.
Practice with your BR, it's the only weapon you really need, that's the best advice i can give you.
holy shit son, just accept that you're wrong before you hurt yourself. you're literally going full autism right now
>OMG I CAN'T USE A VEHICLE OR WEAPON EVERY SINGLE MATCH WAAAAAAAH WAAAAAH
Also, req packs ARE RANDOM! You make it sound like people who are spending money in any amount just have a million of these things laying around. This is not the case. Also, it really doesn't fucking matter if they have a million of them or not, they can still be destroyed just like every other vehicle and weapons can be lost just as easily. They're also completely wasted if they're no good with said weapon or vehicle. This game is far, FAR, from being pay to win, and quite frankly, if you don't like it... don't play it! Holy shit, what a fucking concept! If you don't like microtransactions (which you fucking knew was going to be in the game before you even fucking bought it) then don't buy the goddamn game or stop playing. Seriously, people have been saying this for quite a while now, vote with your wallet.
1/10 making me reply
How can you be this dense?
What matters and my point is that Abdul Ackbar Muhammad could have 10 goldpacks of items available per game of warzone he plays. You meanwhile can only get a gold pack every 4-5 games at best.
>blah blah get gud
I do fine in warzone I'm not whining because I lost to Timmy who spenty his Mom's money.
I'm just telling you it's pay to win.
> It's not pay to win.
Okay what is your definition of pay to win? And give me some example games that are pay to win?
How does that affect which team wins though?
Pay to win implies his cards provide a direct contribution to his team winning, him having an Oni mantis doesn't guarantee it one way or the other.
Basically, opinions, and neither of us are going to change the others.
>Also, req packs ARE RANDOM! You make it sound like people who are spending money in any amount just have a million of these things laying around.
They could. Now we're just dealing with gradations of the advantage provided by the money they spend. It's still pay to win.
Do you deny that if Bill Gates decided to sponsor me in playing warzone and gave me a bunch of cash to blow on packs I would have an advantage compared to my old self?
The fact that you people keep bringing up how skill or getting gud can trump the advantaged of the req items doesn't matter. If you played a duplicate of yourself who had money to blow he has advantage and I would expect him to win more often than not. That is the essence of pay to win, paying money gives advantage in game.
A final thought experiment. If you randomly split the Halo 5 population into two groups and disallowed one from spending any money on req packs and the other was given a budget of $1000 per month to spend on req packs, then made them only play on teams with people from their group. Which group would expect on average to perform better?
Obviously the group with the $1000 to spend. How is this not pay to win?
>Pay to win implies his cards provide a direct contribution to his team winning, him having an Oni mantis doesn't guarantee it one way or the other.
How is an oni mantis vs regular mantis or [superior rare version] vs [normal common version] not a direct contribution to them winning?
Since when does pay to win mean something so literal? For it to be pay to win would it literally have to be spend $X for Y points in your next warzone match?
I can't even think of a popular game that is so baldfaced pay to win.
You keep denying that skill and balance actually to play a factor into reqs. I have won matches in which I didn't spend a single req point. I straight up used only my BR and then DMR and won the match. It didn't matter that the enemy team had a few Warthogs or some Fuel Rods or whatever the fuck else, because I was skilled enough to combat their reqs. Assuming both teams in your hypothetical scenario are competent, the team without buying reqs would still have just as much a chance to win as the other team.
>They can earn their req packs
>They can capture all the points
>They can take out any vehicle or player with power weapons using basic gear, again assuming they are competent players.
>You can only call in a limited supply of reqs in a match, so even if the team who bought packs was calling shit in, they would only be able to bring so many into each match, which in turn can be taken out easily by the team who didn't buy packs
Seriously, several people in this thread have explained this shit to you like 5 goddamned times... how are you this fucking stupid?
>"Since when does pay to win mean something so literal?'
>pay to win
>can still lose a match regardless of reqs called in
Jesus... Fucking... Christ... you are dumber than an ejection seat on a helicopter...
>Assuming both teams in your hypothetical scenario are competent, the team without buying reqs would still have just as much a chance to win as the other team.
How can you say this? I fail to see how between two teams of exactly matched players the team with superior reqs does not have advantage.
Seriously you don't think over a large number of matches there would be a difference in win rate between the two?
>can still lose a match regardless of reqs called in
Again when has anybody ever meant pay to win in such a literal way? It's always been used to mean when a game allows you to pay money to confer some appreciable advantage which warzone does.
As I said before I can't think of a game where paying money literally makes it impossible to lose. Do you have an example of a game that fits your stringent definition of pay to win?
>instead of replying just calls me a retard
I don't get why people go so upset by facing the fact it's pay to win.
Except there is a threshold. If someone only bought one gold pack would they be paying to win? I can easily get one for free. Thus, there IS a threshold. It's okay. The sooner you accept you're retarded the sooner you can move on with your life.
>If someone only bought one gold pack would they be paying to win?
You'd have a point if there was a limit to buying one goldpack per xbl account but there isn't.
How do you handle case of the popular youtuber or saudi prince buying lots of packs?
You said there was no threshold for it being pay to win. If buying one pack confers the same benefit as using reqs for one pack, clearly there is a threshold.
And you don't even have to buy gold packs to compete with someone buying them. You get spartan lasers in silvers, as can Whiplash and Arclight. So if your theoretical team of Saudi princes are buying a gorillion gold packs and my team of neets are buying exclusively silvers, we'd still have an abundance of anti vehicle reqs. Which we could call in twice as often as you can spawn an Oni tank/matis/ultra wraith/banshee.
Not to mention plasma nades, splinter nades, kinetic BR, DMR, SMG, plasma pistol and its two variants.
Ok, so lets assume that I'm going to be playing with and against myself. I know I am competent enough in the game to handle most situations. I'm also going to assume that the team of me's that has bought reqs is going to use them like I would normally use a req, and the team of me's that is using earned reqs is going to use them knowing they are more limited. By the time we hit lvl 4 reqs, both teams have called in a Warthog. Team Bought (B) is using thier ONI hog to get kills because that's what I like to do in an ONI hog. Team Earned (E) knows that there is an ONI hog on the battlefield so they are playing it a little more cautiously and decide that in order to keep up with the ONI hogs' kills, they need to kill bosses, which they do. Ground troops for both teams have called in perhaps a few random weapon reqs or maybe a needler at most and are fighting for garages or holding them. Neither team at this point has a clear advantage over the other. Now it's around lvl 6 reqs We're starting to see things like Scorpions and maybe a Gauss hog on the field. Since Team B wasn't focusing on bosses for the first part of the match, they are now losing and start using their heavier weapons and vehicles to get boss kills, but Team E still manages to pick off a few bosses getting the last hit in. Meanwhile Team B has more players in vehicles than Team E softening up the defenses on their points and Team E now controls majority of the map, killing Team B's players from a distance with DMR's and BR's and sometimes stealing their called in req weapons while using the limited reqs they have more sparingly (ie calling in a Laser to specifically take out a banshee or tank or a sniper to keep pressure on a point while teammates rush in to take it. Team B is fighting back with heavy artilery and is managing to keep up. Score is pretty even at this point. Bases have traded hands and bosses have been killed by both teams. Warden Eternal has now shown up
Team B is using their reqs to hit the Warden hard, while Team E is taking this opportunity to flank their vehicles and kill focused ground targets giving their other teammates the chance to leach the kill. At this point it can go to either team. Neither team has a clear advantage over the other. Knowing that their reqs are more limited, Team E used them only when needed while Team B used them whenever they wanted, but because you can only call in so much during a match, Team E was able to keep up. A variety of reqs were being called in by both teams by all players meaning that even though Team E has less individually, together they have just as much as Team B and are doing a better job of using them BECAUSE of how limited they are. Win or lose 3 or 4 matches, and no individual player of Team E has used up all of their reqs and can now purchase a gold pack, or 2 silvers, or several bronze replenishing their supply of reqs.
This is how both teams of fully competent players, one with earned reqs and another with bought, have no advantage over the other. Both teams know how to combat each other and adapt to the situations on the battlefield. Granted, not every match is like this. You'll have people who don't buy reqs who suck shit at the game complaining that the people are are running around with reqs bought them and didn't earn them, and you'll have people who bought reqs and suck shit with them complaining that they just wasted a req they bought and that it's unfair.
I hope this explains it for you. I'm off to bed
>long drawn out scenario tailored to show no advantage
Except they do have an advantage. You just handwaved stuff, like team with oni hog and other team plays more cautious so no advantage.
But uh nice fanfic bruh.
>are doing a better job of using them BECAUSE of how limited they are
kek what is this some integible skill increase because they have less reqs?
Is that so? The team of princes will win for sure will they? If even one person on team neet reqs a splaser your tank is getting fucked.
It takes literally 2 games to get a silver. When you unlock the cert you get 3-4 copies of the item. Everyone who has unlocked the splaser/whiplash/arclight cert will have at least 3 just from the pack they received the cert in.
If even one person on team neet is intelligently calling in reqs you'll get very little use out of your p2w tanks.
hes not saying they're better skilled hes saying they're using them better as in state of mind
"i like using the laser and i have 100 of them lol whatever" vs "theres an oni warthog wrecking my team i better call in this laser and take it out"
the guy with more can afford to just waste them and so is calling them in just because rather than for a specific reason where as the other guy is vice versa
in an evenly skilled match there would be no advantage and his wall of text looks a lot like how closely skilled matches play out although its hard to say whos bought reqs and whos earned them at this point because youll always get more than you can use and more so if you have less unlocked items thats why people complain they get a shit ton of needlers and mongooses
Why wouldn't the princes win if they are equal in all other aspects? If the splaser is so strong that a tank isn't worth using at all then they wouldn't use it.
The princes simply have more options and strategies open to them. Besides you keep appealing to very compotent teams countering any vehicles or reqs but the princes could do just the same. Have fun trying to take out oni vehicles etc late in the game when three princes are rocking nornfangs etc.
>hes not saying they're better skilled hes saying they're using them better as in state of mind
Why would you assume that though? That's a complete assumption based on nothing that the people who haven't bought their reqs will somehow used them more intelligently. I could just as easily say the people without loads of bought reqs will get tilted more easily if they get killed after calling in their power weapon or vehicle.
Both are baseless. Looking at the facts the team with a wealth of reqs has an obvious advantage or at least ability to vary their game to their advantage.
>the guy with more can afford to just waste them and so is calling them in just because rather than for a specific reason where as the other guy is vice versa
>He'll waste them cause I said so!
The scenario was exactly equal teams except for reqs they should use their reqs just as well.
>in an evenly skilled match there would be no advantage
I'm honestly dumbfounded you are sticking with this claim. So if exact duplicate teams played warzone except one had infinite stocks of each item available there would be no advantage?
You keep making the non-paid team sound like a masterful well organized team while the paid req team is a bunch of idiots.
A well organized competent team could easily protect their strong vehicles etc and make intelligent use of all their reqs.
Assuming optimal teams on a symmetric map then the team that did not pay for reqs cannot win.
The best they can hope for is a tie but I think it's highly likely the optimal strategy for the paid team would let them win every time.
mfw somebody actually took the time to make this
>that guy that dies to the Elites/Prometheans in the beginning of the match
>billy got his very own sticky
the group I was playing with last night used breakout as the variant and the portal at the end takes you to an area to cap the flag.
It was 3 rounds of one person as sniper and then they'd switch.
>Enemy gets a high early lead
>Catch up to them around 40
>Win by 5 kills
>tfw getting the final kill and hearing the other teams best player seething at his teammates
I love it when the other team rages at the end of a match.
I haven't been in the Halo scene since Reach and I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to answer some questions as I couldn't find what I was looking for using google.
I know Req points and packs can be unlocked playing the game and they give you customizable gear. Can I earn everything there is this way for free or are some things locked behind the req packs you buy?
I placed Platinum 1 for Team Slayer, is there any way to rank up after I place? How high up can I go? Is Plat the highest?
Does my Spartan level mean anything, as in, do I get anything for reaching a certain level?
>Can I earn everything there is this way for free or are some things locked behind the req packs you buy?
Yeah, but it'll take you literal weeks of grinding Warzone for it.
You can rank up after you place. Each division has 6 levels, aside from Onyx and Champion.
The order is Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Onyx, Champion
1. Yes you can get everything via free req packs.
2. Yes you can rank up. Plat means younwere fortunate enough to not have people on your team leave in at least 4 games, grats on that. I placed gold 1 because shit placement teams but I'm diamond 4 now, will be onyx this weekend likely
3. Spartan level I believepersonally certain reqs will not come out of packs until you reach a certain level. Idk if this is confirmed but i believe it to be true..
I'd just like to throw in that yes the situation should call for certain reqs when playing not just using your best reqs because they are avalaible. Anyone can take down an Oni tank with a level 2 speed boost. Anyone can kill an ultra banshee with a rocket launcher. I've seen first hand a match where we had to go up against a team that had countless tanks and mantis but we ended up winning because we took down the bosses while they were busy fighting.
Also I noticed people leaving a lot, like as soon as the match starts. I thought you'd get banned if you left games so often? How forgiving is the ban? Because I see people leaving games literally as soon as they die
After a teammate is damaged from enemy fire you can shoot them and you won't get a betrayal it will say the other player killed them. Also you can leave two matches in both arena and war zone in 12 hour periods. On top of that you can betray two different people and not get kicked however kill the same person twice and you get kicked.

She called me pathetic for camping with power weapons and told me to suck a bag of dicks
The second message was her making fun of my mother and then saying she blocked me.
Ayy if she sent you hate mail she's probably sent others some also. You're not some special snowflake who got he all riled up, she's probably a raging thundercunt.
that takes the fun out of it though
After getting like 15 clan invites, a hate message like that was welcome.
True it is a huge letdown when you get a random message and it's some bullshit like an add or KSI invite.
Nothing for me was as bad as Destiny, random invites and messages all the time to help or explain how to do something. Use the fucking internet plebs.
no what was that post?

Holy fucking shit famalam this is some next level hell right now. I was really feeling some halo when I got back too.

Fuck this game.
Reach already have nineteen playlists. I really wish they would have at least taken out the forge maps and replaced them with the DLC by now.
I mean what's the point of making it BC if you're not even going to do a basic update.

Allying with gravemind after he raped your waifu
you deserve worse
It is highly praised for the multiplayer, and rightly so. Easily my favorite multiplayer in many respects, definately has the best maps. Each map is unique and has LORE written all over it.
But the campaign was an enormous letdown. Short, unmemorable, underwhelming. I blame Microsoft for their pointless money grabbing over hyped marketing deadlines.
Brutes replacing Elites also falls under "worst ideas ever" and I'm sure Bungie probably realised that.
Too much Flood, new Flood forms are uninspired and uncreative, not even a sight of Gravemind during the whole game. And don't even get me started on the confrontation with Truth.
Bitching aside, I love Halo 3. The campaign is just a mess with a few great parts.
What the hell are you talking about? You fought the flood more in Halo CE & 2. They're worse in those game Halo 2 Flood are straight up broken. Halo 3 had the best Brutes that were actually fun to fight, Halo 2 Brutes were unfinished sponges, while Reach Brutes were retards yeah maybe Bungie should split the AI intelligence of the Elites & Brutes 50/50 instead pouring it all done the Elites throats. Halo 3 arguably had the best missions and campaign gameplay out of the entire series. When it came down to letdowns the only Halo that really let me down was Halo 2. False advertisement, most of the levels were crap except for a few, shit boss fights, shit ending, not explaining the Flood, the Floods return felt unnecessary shit became convoluted when the Gravemind entered. Too many linear scripted moments mixed with monster closets on every level, fucking gondola, no ending. After e3 2003 I was expected something to blow my mind but god damn it hurt so much that the demo from e3 never made it into the game. I still remember the old magazine scans that talked about everything that was planned for Halo 2, disappointing.
I nearly got a Perfection in the tank on Recurve. Then I got out in the last 30 seconds and someone killed me. Got mad.
I remember one match that was real close... the other team's MVP messaged something like "GG, but I'd have won if I didn't take a sec to scratch my balls"
>Halo 3 arguably had the best missions
I can't really think of a level in Halo 3 I could replay over and over and still have fun. The Ark and maybe The Storm, that's it. And no, I don't like Tsavo Highway
Different guy here; I found the Flood to be too easy. Besides being as vulnerable to a melee as everything else, they also fell apart from like two shots from any plasma weapon, and the "headshot" target was bigger than ever. Plus the pure forms were even worse: I don't think I've ever been killed by anything other than a Ranged form, even on Legendary.
That, and the Brute designs were pretty terrible - raimbow colors don't fit them nearly as well as Elites, and defies everything we know about their aesthetic preferences-, the Grunt dialogue wasn't really funny, and its "mini-bosses" were all easy as hell to deal with, always handing you something that could pretty much 1-hit them beforehand, be in Camo or Flame Grenades for Chieftains or Tanks, Rockets, Hornets, etc. for Scarabs. Then there's Guilty Spark...
Which is why Reach's Brute design was the best. They weren't naked like in Halo 2, but they didn't look like Power Rangers either. The colors well dull and the armor looked intimidating. I wonder though, if Bungie changed the Brute design in Reach because they realized there was room for improvement, or if they just wanted it to look similar to Halo 2 Brutes to fit the era.
I can't think of a level from Halo 2 that I liked, besides ODST & every other Halo after 3 Halo 2 is my least played Halo game out of the Trilogy.
I found Halo 2 Flood Broken. You never give a melee enemy a one hit kill, infection forms also now kill just by tough game doesn't even let you know when one is on you.
No they're not, Reach ugly ass Brutes look like something from Gears of War mixed Michael Bay shit they didn't not look like Brutes Halo 3 Brutes were Halo 2 Brutes but shaved. Also no body wants bland ass looking enemies in Halo you want that shit go play Reach or COD there is your grimdark. Halo was never that & it will never be that got it. Halo Reach Brutes looked like the generic aliens from the first Avengers movie (& don't compare them to Halo 2's Brutes b/c they don't even resemble those, you need to get your eyes checked if think they even remotely resemble Halo 2 Brutes).
They looked fine, and practical, and they weren't the main enemy anyways. You'd only encounter Brutes in small packs on certain missions. You can call them ugly, that's the point, but they don't look like generic aliens.
>Also no body wants bland ass looking enemies in Halo you want that shit go play Reach or COD there is your grimdark
The flood are pretty fucking bland and 'dark' so what's your point.
I dunno, man, Halo 3's "Evil gorilla" look pretty cliched to me.
At least Reach gave them a bit of a twist, though I'd have liked if they'd kept a bit of Halo 2's bear-like quality.
No they didn't they were as generic as they come since Bungie felt the need to cater to the COD trash for that game. I can grab any generic Locust from Gears of War & take of a Brutes helmet in Reach & you can barely tell them apart. The Flood were no where near bland or generic. Flood brought atmosphere to the game, when the Flood appeared the tone of the game changed from bright & vibrant to dark & atmospheric. Reach as a whole wanted to look like every other generic ass shooter on the market. Oh hey you know what else looks like a generic piece of shit Destiny which Reach was a test bed for. Defend Reach all you want I seem to notice a pattern here with /v/ in general, you guys seem to fall in love with the games everyone else hated when they released, is this b/c you felt sorry for the game & devs b/c their games were a disappointment or shit or is it b/c you were the only ones in that particular group that liked the game that when you try to ague about what you liked other gamers tore you apart on their forums? I also seem to notice that the games that are considered the best in their series is considered overrated, is this b/c of jealously that you game is ignored due to their large sum of problems?
>activate warzone rp jackpot
>get put in a losing game in progress on that city map

Sometimes pubs amaze.
That's a lot of projecting there friend. I never even said I liked Reach, I was just talking about Brutes. I never said I disliked the other Halo games or thought they didn't deserve their praise. You're just instantly assuming that so you can attack me. So it's okay when the flood make the game grim dark but when the covenant does it for ONE race you barely even fight it's just unacceptable, right? get off your high horse. All you had to say is 'I like the other brute models more' and we'd be done.
That whole rant borders non sequitur...
Besides, the whole "Reach looks like a generic military shooter" thing was always pretty ridiculous. Even if it doesn't have Halo 3's over-saturated cartoon colors, it still has vibrant visuals and scenery.
The thing is Halo 3 is not the only Halo game with over-saturated cartoon colors. Every Halo game including 343's Halo looks like a cartoon with over-saturated colors. Reach was the only Halo game that didn't have this, I never had a problem with this. It felt good that Halo was one of the only shooters at the time with a lot of colors & then Reach happened. Halo was never meant to be realistic why Bungie try to go for this is beyond me it's one of the main reason I barely play Reach is b/c of the bland colors make it look like every other shooter.
>get put in a game where everyone is fucking diamond
>everyone on my team goes negative but me
Jee I can't wait to get put in gold or some shit because I keep losing games and not being fortunate enough to be carried into diamond like those fucking retards were.
What are you trying to prove Reach looks the best out of all those.
>Every Halo game including 343's Halo looks like a cartoon with over-saturated colors
I disagree. Halo 2 was trying to go for a different artstyle, and I think it failed in that department. It is the worst-aging Halo game.
>muh Reach looks best
Proceeds to grab the ugliest Reach pic.
Go back to COD you retarded Reach Fag. Also where is the invading force b/c I sure as hell didn't a planet fall until the end of the game bitch.
You act stupidly comment on my opinion like a spoiled brat that doesn't know how to act like an adult & ignore. I hate Reach, it's not like I'm telling your dumbass to hate it too that's just my opinion & I don't give a fuck what you think of my opinion on that game is.
New Alexandria is gorgeous. And somehow incredibly comfy despite the enormous ground-shaking ships glassing the city. And figting the Hunters in the club is easily one of my favorite moments in any game.
How did Bungie make such enormous envinments like New Alexandria? The scale is enromous.
It really irks me that New Alexandria is so huge yet the mission is so short. Go fly around the level, these so much detail and so many cool spots. You can actually walk across most of the city if you have a jetpack by using the tubes connecting the buildings. I wish Halo would have more open environments but I guess that's too much work for not enough gain.
IDK why do you guys constantly bring why you hate Halo 3 instead of talking about playing Halo 5? Maybe you guys should stop asking which Halo you like best if your just going to start an argument over who opinion is fact don't you think anon?
Agreed. I would've prefered more jetpacking along the tops of buildings than flying the falcon from section to section. So much fun to explore though.
New Alexandria just goes to show how arbitrary and odd the "return to the bartlefield" thing is. You can go pretty much -everywhere- in NA, yet other levels you go slightly off the track and it slams you down. Invisible walls intertwined make it even more confusing. Weird design choice.
I think jetpacking through the level would have been awesome but for most people it would probably take too long and they'd get bored of the mission, but if they put troops on the rooftops and driveby phantom hit and runs, it would've been the best mission in the series.
Just bought an OG Xbox to nostalgia over the times I was 11 and first brought that beast home with the BRAND SPANKING NEW Morrowind port

Having a blast. I'll play a round or two of Warzone, then switch over and play a bit of my HUEG, then go back to Halo 5. I'm still looking for a Duke controller.
I have Chaos Theory on Steam now, but when I originally have my Xbox I had it on there. It's up there with MGS1 imo. I have Fable also, I forgot to list it. Actually, I still have the special preorder disc you got from pre-ordering Fable. Pic related.
I still have the OG xbox you should get,

Also do you know where to get OG controller (not ebay) my old one broke and I need a new one :c
The scripting is great, yeah-- when it works. I'm not going to give them full credit for something if it doesn't work.
Have you tried to script rotation for, well almost anything? It looks janky as fuck.
Have you tried to script things to spawn in sequence? They fucking stop spawning and despawning if you're standing within like 30 feet of them, and I only found that out on accident.
Scripted despawning doesn't work in Forge at all, you have to stop, leave Forge, load up the map in a custom game, see if you did everything right, leave the custom game, and load up Forge again to fix it or continue working.
Those are just the scripting issues.
Have you tried having multiple different groups on a map? When you load the map up after saving and quitting, it will randomly group things together and randomly unweld things-- hope you don't try to take advantage of the admittedly very cool new ability to have multiple objects behave as one, because it'll randomly not work! Also if you try to delete or duplicate this mega-group that the glitch creates, the game will crash to dashboard. You have to ungroup everything to continue working.
Just to add insult to injury, there's at least one object that was made the wrong size, the 2x24x32 wall piece is actually 2x22x32, and nothing else is 22 units across.
Get Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes. It's fucking amazing with a badass fucking soundtrack. Like a combo of Dynasty Warriors and an RTS.
