here's the reason: outside of grifbal, most of those were dead playlists in Reach. i agree that more playlists = more options = better, but i can see why 343 would rather focus on core modes than introduce a bunch of playlists that relatively few care about.
The game has been out 1 week, give it some time bro.
Not singling you out phazon, just quoting. Halo Reach had this stuff when it came out, he just wants the same level of service, and quite honestly swat is very basic. It definitely should've come out with the game.
Agreed, Reach had variety in gametypes and even map variety on launch, this game doesn't. I can't play 5 of the same maps in slayer and 5 on Big Team Slayer, it gets boring. Snipers would be okay for larger maps with 4v4 I don't know. This game's only been out for a week and I already feel burnt out.
These counting things are stupid. People that agree: 22
Anyone remember that time Halo 2 launched without a Team Slayer playlist? Yeah......
Its been a week dude. We're not gonna have all the eventual, final content that will be continuously added/updated week by week in the first few days. Honestly we're going to be getting much more updates more frequently than any other Halo, so just relax.
