im fucking terrible at it - which is weird. i'm also strangely committed to wrapping my head around it and at least becoming decent. not sure why. my bruised ego? but yeah, the style is really not for me

Speaking of trying to nonsensically apply trends to Halo, remember when kids were obsessed with Minecraft and Murder Miners was a thing for like two weeks?

I wouldn't be entirely against a Halo BR provided they did away with random loot and gave everyone a utility weapon to start with.

Basically just make it a giant one life FFA match with non-random weapons on map.

That could be fun.
How about all? BR, Arena, BTB, and a massive PVE sorta like Anthem, Destiny and division only with Halo boundaries.

That doesn't sound too bad. Rather than permadeath, I like Apex's Respawn system and I think it would better suit Halo's combat.

I'm not opposed to BR, but I'd rather get Firefight and Invasion back first.
True

Man that feels like forever ago. Before the HaloGAF ban, before the brief stay at SLAENT...
That was such BS to this day. Banning an entire community for a couple posts from just as many posters. Then citing the entire community was too off topic while other community threads were just as bad.

Got matched with a player 3 times on MCC tonight who did nothing but bring teammates shields down and betray them. Killed me 4 or 5 times over 3 games, they were even listed as the player who killed me most in one of the matches despite being on my team 😅

Frustrating that I never got the option to boot them. Is betrayal booting enabled in MCC? Was in Halo 3 if that matters.

Universal praise and hype for Respawn (who deserve it) for Apex Legends, swooping in and showing how BR should be done when the genre is still hot.

Meanwhile, Halo at 343...

*crickets*

Oh hey at least we can play decade old games better now on MCC.
Respawn have certainly delivered the movement and gunplay/mechanics I want from a BR mode. Far and away above PUBG or Fortnite (aiming on console for those two is a total joke). Apex Legends is a real sweet spot for feeling accurate and when you lose you lost because of yourself/team not because of the controls.

That said I played about 6 games last night and still found myself having that ill feeling BR experience, scrounge for items for 10minutes get a kill or two and then die in a 10seconds gun tight. It's just a very slow gamestyle. I see the appeal but I far prefer a PvE experience, now give me that in a setting of 10-20-30 players on maps this size in a dynamically generated setting and we're good. I had some great moments and I'll Apex over PUBG/Fortnite but I'll still have BR on the secondary list of what I want to play.

Hope 343 doesn’t jump into the BR wagon.

All I want from 343 is a big, massive PVE to experience and explore the Halo universe.
This is so spot on for me. Exactly what I want from Infinite. Waaay more PvE and campaign content delivered often. PvP is fun but it just isn't fair online and gets stale without a regular team. Matchmade/party PvE content is what I want for the future of Halo. Given the Azure services I'd really like to see them push the boundaries and innovation on this front e.g. Gambit, story content, dynamic mission, Forge for mini campaigns.

Yup, Halo universe is so fascinating and rich with enemies, weapons, armors and stories.
LET ME TEAM UP AND EXPLORE.

While Destiny is Ok and Anthem looks also Ok from what I’ve played, 343 and Halo can really dominate this area. Everything is basically there, they just need to execute it right.

Just do it like Halo has always done.

Set weapons spawn in set positions. No randomness.
Yup jem knows what I mean

I enjoy playing pubg/blackout because of the (in game narrative) that comes with having bad->good loot and the progression of each game, but if they locked it down so you knew where stuff was, that would change the dynamic of how you approach drop locations and fighting to take areas because knowing what enemies may have.

It might not work in practice, but it could be a unique element for the genre that I believe is too random to truly be "competitive"

I don't have a white board and a design team to help push these types of ideas to their fullest, but I just believe if you pulled that string you'd eventually find your way to something very unique and possibly great

I honestly have to wonder if there's going to be a big enough audience for this to warrant a 3 day event across multiple cities. Sure people will show up, and if I could I would go to the Houston one on that Saturday, but until I see more (the panels, booths, etc.) I have to wonder y'know? This seems to be like their own Star Wars Celebration which is cool, but I don't know if making it a tour will help it.

I'm months late (maybe even years) but I finally plugged in my 360 to get films off of it and came across all the Bungie vs the World maps in Halo 3. NOKYARD did you still want those, assuming I can find a way to get them off the 360?

Look at this monstrosity



Again beauty



Hideous




And of course the obsession with this blue color, so frustrating.

H1 Sniper Rifle and other weapons for life. They looked and felt so much more futuristic and clean (shotgun especially.)
Yup, CE is Legendary. They just sorta fit into Halo atmosphere. 2- Reach also.
343 design fits more into infinite warfare tbh. Out of wack.

Haven’t tried apex yet. What do you mean by that?
You can ping ANYTHING, so if you see a weapon you can ping it and your friends will all hear you vocalize where is at and what it is, same for general locations where they should go or where enimies are at. They could remove radar for a ping system because it just makes shoutouts easier and you don't have to actually talk.

Sounds like the system for Vermintide.

How does ping compare to Spartan Chatter? I Remember when H5 beta was out, a lot of people complained about how much talking the Spartans did. I for one really appreciated being able to get call out information from people who weren't using mics.in the full release, I think toned back how often they talK.

It's essentially a more contextual only when you want to use it version of that with some visual queus
