Listen low ranks. This is not Halo 3. You do not rank up in Halo 4 by winning matches. You rank up in Halo 4 by earning experience. Having a strategy that earns the most experience is playing the right way. Would you grab the hammer in Donkey Kong to smash one barrel? You probably would. But I wouldn't. I save them for when I gather eight or nine barrels and get way more points.
Halo 4 is no different. Experience is your points. I am playing the right way. You are playing wrong.
It's k though, you can boast to your friends about how you beat someone in online matchmaking.
I'll be chillin here with my Eagle emblem and ??+% commendations
You know how you earn exp? You play Spartan Ops. You play objectives to have fun. So you were doing it wrong right from the start and then had the gall to be mad at your team for carrying you to victory. --- "I can't believe how childish you are, both in attitude AND breast size!" - Kusanagi to Momiji, _Blue Seed_
