Its funny how they keep stealing little ideas from CoD, when really it wont change anything. CoD fans will never cross over to Halo as long as the kill times are so damn slow. No matter how many CoD like bells and whistles are thrown onto it.
Make kill times more like Halo 2 or hell go for Ce kill times, and thats when you start seeing CoD players start to shift over. They like fast, arcade style gameplay. Not slow and clunky with marshmellow guns.
Incidentally, thats also when Halo was at its best. H2 and CE --- balls
Not to say what Halo 4 has isn't decent with the armor unlocks and such but calling it's certainly not a better sense of progression than trying to get level 50 on certain playlists and the actual real ingame prestige it brang instead of the rubbish cod based system.
....you did hear that they're bringing back the rank 50 system for each competitive playlist, right? They said it wouldn't be available at launch but that it will definitely be added soon. --- "Do you remember the episode where Ash caught a Pumbloom?" "Dude!--" "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
