So why all the complaints about custom games?

It's true that a lot of the stuff you mentioned shouldn't have been overlooked and they are major flaws, but give 343 some time. I think they'll patch it and do a nice job of addressing a lot of the complaints.

Please don't rage at me. I realize this should have been complete before release. I'm just saying I think they care about their game enough to fix it.

Does the fact that you can't disable sprint really bother people?

It bothers me. I was trying to create a custom Snipers gametype that had a more classic feel to it. The inability to disable sprint put the kibosh on that.

this is taken from 343's site. There's a massive thread going on right now with people complaining about the lack of options. This is just from the original post...







General:

- Bring back VIP, Juggernaut, Assault, Headhunter, Stockpile, Invasion, Territories, and Race with all previously included options from Halo 3 and Reach, respectively. This includes things like VIP radius traits.
- Add option to all gametypes to disable Sprint.
- Bring back the Custom Powerup in Forge, and add in the option to edit it for all gametypes.
- Under the "Appearance" tab, bring back the full range of colors.
- Fix the bug where placed weapons won't show up in certain gametypes.
- Enable full File-Share options and support on Waypoint.
- Add option to all gametypes to disable "Press X to Respawn" or "Auto Respawn".
- Bring back infinite or regenerating grenades as a custom option.


Flood:

- Make Flood loadouts editable.
- Fix Alpha Zombie to last more than one life.
- Make the Flood skin togglable.
- Remove all-talk so Zombies and Humans have different chat channels again.
- Bring back the option for player's chosen color scheme instead of restricting us to the lime-green color for Humans.
- Bring back percentage options for "Number of Flood".
- Fix the bug where weapons placed on the map in Forge do not show up in Flood customs. Currently the only way to get custom weapons on the map is through Ordinance drops. This is the same bug as the "general" weapon bug.
- Fix bug where Last Man Standing waypoint cannot be turned off even if it is disabled in the options.
- Give the "Number of Flood" a full range of numbers (1-15).
- Bring back Havens. Kevin Franklin actually said this existed, and it does not.

CTF:

- Bring back the option to remove auto pick-up.
- Bring back option to drop the flag.
- Bring back option to turn off flag waypoints (On carrier, on ground, escort, etc.).
- Add in option to remove the Flagnum. (Better yet, give us the option to give the flag carrier ANY weapon, including none!).
- Add in option to edit how much extra damage the flag carrier weapon does. It is currently hard-coded.
- Add in option for Neutral Flag.
- Add in option for 1-Flag.

Forge

- Bring back precision Forging.
- Give us a big, open space to Forge in devoid of terrain and pre-made buildings.
- Add the "Weapon Pickup" option into Trait Zones.
- Bring back the zoom-in function for monitors.












There are definitely more issues than that, but those seem to be the main ones. Here's a link to the thread...

I definitely urge people to post their opinion on that thread as well. If any thread is being closely monitored, and possibly considered, it's that one. Halo 4 is so damn close to being a great game, but there is still a massive pile of small changes that needs to be addressed before it gets there. Hopefully there will be a massive patch to fix these things :\
