Excited about Halo again!

#1AshAcrimoniousPosted 1/28/2013 8:12:44 AM
The last time I was excited about Halo was with 3 where me and friends would play trying to level to 50 and really getting into it. With Reach we didn't have this which sucked but eventually we got into it but much more casually.

Halo 4 hadn't impressed me online so far but with the news of the CSR and the new competitive playlist coming I'm really excited. Is there any other exciting news i've missed?

Competitive Skill Rank. Rather than just having a level which shows how long you've played (what we have now) CSR is meant to give an accurate representation of your skill level though it will only be visible on waypoint.

I was hoping so.

So will the SRwhatever be only shown in the noncompetitive playlist?

your Spartan Rank(SR1-SR130)won't change at all. visible for every playlist.

your 1-50 CSR will only be visible on halo waypoint(stupid)

Apparently it will be in all playlists, so you can go 1-50 in each playlist individually. But like he said it's only visible on waypoint. So like Halo 3 I assume :)

Yeah their reasoning was pathetic. It was to prevent casuals from getting scared by having a visible skill rank so they're putting it on way point only.

Damn casual ruining the gaming industry more and more every day.

Everyone said it was a miracle when Jesus hit that grand slam in the bottom of the 9th. I just thought it was a lucky shot.
