Why do people hate Sprint?

I enjoy waiting 45 minutes to find a game.

Being able to hit a button and high tail it out of danger is cheap. I would be okay with accelerated movement if it built up over time, though. So, let's say you're walking forward for a couple of seconds. Transitioning can admittedly get pretty tedious, taking into account Halo's relatively slow walking pace. Instead of continuously walking, you could give yourself a jolt; instigate a jog. Press the dash button after jogging for a while and now you're full on sprinting. Speed should be gained in increments.

Here's a question if you think sprint is ruining the game and Halo 3 is better than why not play Halo 3? It's like saying you prefer football to basketball but you still play basketball all day.


low population, outdated game, etc

its both amusing and not surprising at all that only casuals think "casual" is an insult. Its simply a word that describes what kind of gamer a person is.

Would you prefer ignorant, whiny, entitled brat?

Considering you made it seem like sprinting was too much for a casual to understand, you did sound insulting with your use of it.


no, I really didn't.

It allows you to make bad decisions, ruins map design, kills the flow of the game, makes callouts lets important, allows people to get away from fights, makes strafing more important. Thats off the top of my head, theres a bunch more things that make sprint horrible but people just see it getting around the map faster and the developers catered to that.


Let me guess. You run with a jet pack. Everything you complained about with sprint I think applies to the ridiculously over-used jet pack. That's what I think is the scourge of Halo MP.

Message to the people saying qq & adapt: You're saying that to people who are better than you.


Must not be that much better if they're whining about it. If you're good, you suck it up and you adapt as opposed to whining.


Thing is: They aren't whining because they're losing (some do, though).

They're whining because it kills the competitive nature (in their opinion) of the game.


Kills the competitive nature? This is the dumbest opinion I've heard in a while. Please elaborate so I can laugh some more.

Every shooter now a days has a sprint (COD,BF,GOW) every shooter needs a sprint... Now this is HALO we are spartans super soldiers. Yeah lets leave out default sprinting... You guys are idiots for hating on sprint. You wanna complain about sprint ruining map design and aiding instant respawns? This isnt COD where.there are enemies.constantly behind you or next to you. Shooting and killing you before you can even aim
