    I find it funny, the Spartans make odd grunting noises. :)
    Yeah I do it regardless of whether we win or lose simply because it's funny!

    Teabagging during it is the mark of a tosser though.
    There's a video on my fileshare of me tackle-assassinating a guy who did just that...

    It doesn't have campaign matchmaking.

    Dunno if it will in the future since 343 seem to talk PR rather than addressing the community issues.

    From what I've tried you can't use matchmaking for anything but the latest Spartan Ops episode which is rather annoying.

    Another thing, seems the US folk are getting the perks unlocked while nobody else round the world gets them, seems a bit messed up.

    I'm still running about vanilla in game, haven't even made a load out yet.
    Yup matchmaking is purely for War Games and Spartan Ops' latest Episode. Everything else has to be a Custom setup with a group of friends. And you can't watch back any game bar War Games, with a nebulous "maybe in a TU" from 343i.

    And yeah, I brought that up a while back to a resounding "meh". All of the US and Asia get it - even Singapore and India - but the whole of Europe does not. Just about to ding 50 - it'll happen this week for sure - and we have no roadmap to the Specs getting a general release. Map pack 1's the 10th, ie next Monday, so there's a chance a couple may come with that (they said they would be released "over time", which makes me think 2 to a map pack).

    Why they held it back is anyone's guess. There's a terrific game to be had in Halo 4, but 343 seem oddly skewed in their priorities.

    Yeah, it's like the 130 level cap - why 130? Why not make 2 more and go to 150? Heck, why not make 5 available at launch and have the initial cap at 100?

    Also: why is Boltshot even a loadout option when Needler isn't? I mean, one has the ability to one hit kill if you get at least 10 projectiles to hit (which is most of a clip, and you get 2), and the other does it no matter what in one shot at the right range. One is a power weapon obtained through ordinance, the other a loadout weapon. Why? It makes no sense, and it makes Regicide little fun (standard pattern now is get king, hide somewhere with 1 entrance, have boltshot and camo/holo).

    Why can I not say how I want to be matchmade? All I want is to say "keep it local (lowers lag), do not join in progress".

    Many choices like the above make no sense, and some stuff is outright broken (I hear FOTUS has a visor glitch, there's the mislabelled ordinance, the heavy lag issues, many maps give advantage to a team on spawn...) or missing (the preview sheets for the armour has many arm and leg pieces not actually in the game, where's the Theatre for Ops at least?). They utterly ignore everything said on the forums, though.

    Tempted to make a Hunger Games map and mode using Ravine...

    Needler is better than the Boltshot - I know people moan about the BS [hoho], but it's shite beyond a very small range, and you can hear the charge. I don't find it too annoying, tbh.

    Mislabelled ordnance I can live with (even if it is stupid), and I can accept Infinity being a stupid power-weapon mashup as it's in its own playlist. The thing I don't like is the weird treatment of the maps (mostly large) coupled with ONE playlist for BTB - what?! And the network latency seemingly getting worse rather than better. Most of the time it's fine for me, but sometimes it's bad for no apparent reason. And why is the File Browser off? What is the point? I want to play stupid maps.

    Just discovered that there are whole game modes missing from matchmaking - knew about Grifball, but I'd never even heard of Extraction. I'm going to guess that it'll be with TU1/Map Pack 1 as they'll need adding to Commendations, have armour pieces to unlock attached to those, and maybe even an achievement or two.

    Yup, Extraction will be 'activated' then. Can do it in Custom games. Is essentially territories, really, IIRC.

    A BTB objective playlist, a network TU and an opening up of (and use of the creme de la creme of) file sharing would make me a happy bunny. As is I am enjoying a lot, but there are visible, easily fixable, issues.

    Yeah, BTB IS gets old, but it's the only full team game right now. Speaking of, why is Dominion locked at 6 vs 6? It seems perfect for BTB sizes.

    Hopefully, map pack 1 really does come next week, and with fixes for a lot of this.

    Don't think I will bother with the map pack. I want to see what they are fixing first and what direction they plan to go. Reach map packs and playlists burned me.

    I think we forget that Reach was handled (relatively) reasonably... until they culled all DLC playlists.

    Wasn't that not long after 343 took control?

    I remember the dedicated DLC playlists, not sure how long it lasted though. Didn't seem that long. Reach maps and Forge did the game no favours but finally some new maps and they ruin it. Strange strategy.

    I think it's rather deliberate to gut them like that. Why even bother, afraid people won't move on. Just leaves a bad taste whether intentional or not.

    It was a good few months at least. It only happened back in the summer, and 343 had been in charge (fully) for quite a bit longer, I think.

    Yeah, by the time I got back into Reach, the map packs were unused.

    Anyone else not got the 80 pts for finishing first five episodes of Spartan ops? Annoying

    I got it, popped on completion. Did you definitely succeed on part 1? If both fall it's a fail.

    I didn't get it. But then played one chapter of episode 5 solo and it popped.

    Every week the same thing. I have to redownload the Circuit Armour, Specialisation Priority and Map Pass because the game forgets I have them...every Monday.

    Come on 343, get it together. With this and not being able to log on to the servers all last week you're looking very amateurish next to Bungie.
  • Deleted user 3 December 2012 17:52:42
    Will try playing another one. It shows in menu I've completed them all.

    For me it showed I hadn't completed any of episode 2. After doing one of 5 again it corrected. Buggy.

    Anyone else getting serious lag in Spartan Ops? Happened to me last week as well. Infinity MP is fine though...

    Also, my episode 2 results have been wiped. Fantastic...especially since it's not playable in matchmaking...

    Finally got the 1000G today, don't think I'll be playing it much anymore. Will play it from time to time, but it just pisses me off to be honest. I don't like the way 343 are taking the Halo series and it clearly isn't working, the population is going down like crazy, first couple of weeks it had like 200,000 players on it there was only 30,000 on it on Sunday. When ever me and my mates play it, we just end up getting bored after a couple of games and start talking about how much better Halo 3 is lol. Ohwell, I'll still give it a chance and hope 343 realise there mistakes.

    There you went and shown 343 you love it so much with 1000GS. You know how they like stats.

    Did you do the save all marines one in campaign solo ?

    What will really piss you off is that I did that one by accident on my Legendary run through...
  • Deleted user 3 December 2012 21:56:57
    I don't know why I bothered anyway as I'm not too fussed on achievements. Got to a point where I refused to let it go! MUST GET THIS SODDING ACHIEVEMENT!

    Haha, if they saw my bio on XbL, they'd realise how much I don't like H4 lol.
    Yeah, I did, wasn't as hard as I thought it was gonna be. I just got on the turrets, was easy =].
