I remember playing Halo 3 and there would ALWAYS be people using their mics and chatting. Either just random conversations or actual team communication. There were occasional times like that in Reach and now, its non-existent. I miss those days :(

Party chat killed it. There's also no more proximity audio, so there may be players on the other team with mics and you'll never know.
But it shows who has a mic before the teams are split and if they are in a party chat it has a separate icon.
That's mostly true. It does let you talk to the enemy team, but only in those brief moments before the game goes to look for more players. I've had many conversations with teammates cut short between rounds.
I find it amusing that something a drunk person babbled at me is considered "common sense" by Dismind! - Brain Hammer
