Thanks Jive, hope yours doesnt come then!
Managed to get out of the fireworks, eight o'clock it is \o/
I input the code with my Ltd Ed on Fri/Sat (i got it waaay early) I want to know how/when i get these maps? They are available to buy from the ingame store but when i try it asks for MS points... Any ideas?
its that i want to get online tonight and wanna make sure i have not cocked it up.
No idea, but you should try posting in the Halo 4 thread, not the Halo 4 organise games thread, you may get more help as more people may see your problem.
One thought actually, be careful as there was a problem in BF3, where you could buy DLC twice if you went through the marketplace instead of the in-game store.

@evilashchris and @Redsparrows I've not played Halo online since ODST. Played the campaign of REACH but never really got on with the new additions to multiplayer. Did you guys continue with it?
Halo 4 seem more in keeping with Reach than with Halo 3. It all feels a bit... CoDdy. Does it get better the more you play? It doesn't feel anywhere near as pure as Halo3 multiplayer (yet).

Yes, we played a lot of Reach.
I've not had the chance to play Halo 4 online yet, but have watched a lot. It's much more of a mix of 3 (speed, jumping, maps, aesthetics) and Reach (armour abilities, loadouts), with a dash of CoD superficial stuff - the gameplay looks much more Halo than CoD. But Reach wasn't as 'pure' as Halo 3.
I've yet to play it, as I say. In a way I just want Halo 3 reskinned, but my Halo loving chums have all sworn it's still Halo to the core.
I really think weapon unlocks/XP systems are shit - but I don't mind Halo having it as such. I know that sounds odd, but I think it ruins the feel of a game for some, and artifically enhances it for others, but only in the periphery - not the core gameplay. On the one hand, unlocking a BR doesn't really change how that BR shoots and feels - CoD mechanic to access a Halo staple. On the other, why isn't gameplay enough for people? I don't need +50 points to tell me it feels good to get a triple kill.

Unlocking the BR is insanely fast. A single game will do it easily, but I didn't even have to do that - just having a quick look around 3 maps in Forge did it!
See, what's the point of it then? Why bother with unlocks at all? They KNOW what players want to use, and so put rifles first and foremost - I already have the DMR unlocked by playing two custom games to explore maps! I don't want the Storm Rifle, or the Suppressor, or anything but the BR/DMR, then Carbine/LR, so putting it behind an unlock barrier is utterly meaningless.
I think it's a conscious decision to entice that carrot demographic at first, then hopefully by the end of the unlocks they'll see the depth at halo's core. I rhink specialisations will be more important than weapon unlocking.
I'm available pretty much available the whole week now for shenanigans. Campaign, spops or mp. Hit me up biatches.
The carrot demographic needs to understand pretty numbers doesn't make a good game. Halo is a good game because of the gameplay.
Similarly with WoW - it had the total numbers/loot whore aspect, but I loved it for the thrill of the game, playing with friends. When it's just about pushing a bar you might get more life out of it for some, but it's bollocks compared to what a game should be all about.
P.S Will be on tonight. \o/

You can earn stuff a lot easier via SO than you can WG. And putting in the codes gets you around 3000XP. I've played 5 multiplayer matches, played 6 Ops (5 to do them all, 1 on Legendary for a challenge) and finished Heroic campaign, and I'm SR13. It's not like it's a massive grind.

I only have one person on my firend list, so please add me, would like to play with some felloe Eger's
GT = Superdadcometh
Halo Mondays is it? Need some challenging opponents, currently k/d of 2.4 from ten matches.
Won't be on tomorrow, bah.
Don't worry Revan, there'll be time for that to drop...
Edited by RedSparrows at 12:09:11 11-11-2012
Mine dropped a full 0.1 yesterday on a losing streak with a party of all Americans. Don't play with Americans is the lesson I learned.
Split screen it dropped to 1.99.
Single screen back up to 2.1 - even against good people!

Oh yeah, is there a website for all my stats? I assume it's not bungie.net!

It's all on Halo waypoint now.
I wanna play now. Anyone interested?
I will play with anyone anytime. I am playing Flood right now and it largely sucks.
I finally got this yesterday. Played an hour of campaign before I stopped fooling myself, and jumped into multiplayer.
It's still so addictive and fun. Feel free to add me: Zizou1987
Just as I was about to play one more game, the servers became unavailable which sucked. Did anyone else have this problem? It was around 11pm.
Also, I have Moderate NAT for some reason, even though I have open NAT in every other game. Very odd.
