So can anyone tell why Halo 4 got so boring so quickly?

No ranks, no good playlists, player skill isn't rewarded.


To add to this, horrible maps and terrible game mechanics


there's still trueskill operating behind the scenes and if you really want, you can check halotracker for your unofficial 'rank'

no good playlists is completely subjective. snipers was good so I don't understand why they removed it but slayer pro was completely underplayed (despite the whining of those on this board who probably didn't even play it that much)

player skill is rewarded more than Reach. the br from h3 would be nearly as easy to use as this game's br/dmr if it had been hitscan like those two weapons are (dmr just needs an aim-assist range nerf and it'll be fine--the increased slowdown when you hit a player close range with the br is enough reason to switch it up for the dmr occasionally on smallish maps)

maps are infinitely better than what Reach shipped with and the first round of dlc is good. shatter is fun, harvest is solid if unspectacular, and wreckage is good for some objective types

terrible game mechanics? the game plays fine aside from some occasionally choppy, clunky close range maneuvers (i.e. boltshot fight at B on Exile, etc..)

this can all be summed up as: adapt, get better, and quit blaming every death on an allegedly 'cheap' tactic (I can count my boltshot kills on one hand and still win cqc fights a lot more than I lose)


i lol'd


I lol'd at your kd and highest skill


Me being bad doesn't make you're post any less stupid

Any reason anyone posts here is pretty much the same reasoning I used when I put the game back in its case.

One simple thing could have prevented all of this: a public beta.

It was entertaining and satisfying?

Speak for yourselves, I love it. Loved 3's story but hated the multiplayer, and Reach was just dull all around for me. Not sure what I like so much about this one but it's probably my favorite since the original Halo.

I can't quite put my finger on it. I was bored after a month. I played Reach and 3 for almost the entirety of their lifespans, and probably played ODST for longer than 4.


Ranking system is terrible, terrible over-played maps, horrible playlist, etc.

If 343 wants salvage what's left of their failed attempt at a halo game (halo4) then they can start by

1) Nerfing the boltshot..... a lot. This alone will make halo 4 a much more enjoyable game somewhat to play. There's no need for anyone to start off with a 1 shot kill weapon. Idk what 343 was thinking when they came up with that, that's ridiculous. If you use it then you're terrible.

2) Update the playlist

3) Add forge maps to matchmaking.


The best post you've ever made. I almost agree with everything you said. The world is clearly going to end today.



That's not the best post I've made, the best post would have to be the one where I said you're bad.
