    It's definitely faster than before - they've added in a couple of things to speed up movement at points, such as a box to jump from flag spawn up onto the open platform areas, + usual movement speed.

    Had a horrible host on Grifball - he got obscene medals!

    Those dedicated severs on Halo 5 will be a blessing.

    After declaring I wouldn't waste money on the bundle I of course did the opposite. I like the new skins and the prefect armour.

    Never got to play vertigo only the pit and that was 9 games of richochet in a row.

    Gotta love the variety in halo

    Still think The Pit plays poorly on this one :(. Love the other map though, although that might be just because of the only game I had on it was good. Also why can't I get the camping achievement? :S

    Pit plays great, no idea why it doesn't for you. Oh well.

    It's definitely sprint, I've always despised it, and for me it kills The Pit, also the Jet-packing is horrible, I swear everyone is using it on Pit.

    Not come up against jet pack on it - jet pack's always been a map breaker - should never have kept it.

    The Pit is faster, with sprint, of course. But then everyone's faster, so it's just a speedier experience. I like how quickly it goes, actually - the one frustrating thing about the Pit was covering each side of the map effectively if your team wasn't up to much.

    Got absolutely donged by a leet team on it, just like the old days :D

    You're lucky then, I've had JP hoe's every game lol. Agreed on not keeping it, then again I'd say get rid of AA's overall, or just have them on-map pick ups like weapons, equipment or power-ups.

    Ok, calm down, don't tempt 343 to keep sprint for Halo 5 ;).

    If MP is set on the training deck of the Infinity on its way to Requiem, how come you get full access to Promethean weapons?

    I thought Infinity was set during SpOps time, i.e. after Master Chief had been on Requiem?

    Not that I give a shit. Don't need story in MP. That's entirely missing the point.

    I actually prefer the vertigo map from the new pack. Plenty of hidden corners for active camo. Plays well in a lot of modes.

    Since the championship ship bundle had anyone else seen their loadouts defaulted back to recruit. Its happened twice to me now

    Vertigo is pretty good, I like both maps. Liking The Pit a lot more now I'm not going against as many jet-packers as before.

    Just got a cool double rocket kill on green corridor.

    Fired a rocket at a guy at exit of corridor. A grenade he had thrown deflected the rocket down the corridor past him, nailing his chum. A second rocket got rid of the first guy a second later.

    Halo still got it.

    I've ordered my gazillionth Xbox after realising that I would like to play GTA5 with my online mates so I'll probably get this again.

    People still playing it regularly enough for me to bother? Of all the combined systems I've got there's still no real Halo beater.

    Let's hope Halo 5 is a purer vision of Halo. With Killzone seemingly the first to drop xp and COD on the wane maybe shooters can all start having their own identities again?

    Played last week and still people playing. 343 are consolidating the playlists finally but I would be wary of buying DLC.

    http://blogs.halowaypoint.com/Headlines/post/2013/09/11/The-Halo-Bulletin-91113.aspx

    The playlists that will be available after the bulk of consolidation has been completed on 9/30 are as follows:

    8v8 - Big Team Battle
    5v5 - Capture the Flag
    4v4 - Infinity Slayer (may be renamed to Team Slayer)
    4v4 - SWAT
    4v4 - Action Sack
    4v4 - Team Snipers (next update on 9/30)
    4v4 - Ricochet (next update on 9/16)
    2v2 - Team Doubles (next update on 9/16)
    8-player FFA - Rumble Pit
    10-player FFA - Flood
    Community Playlist: 4v4 - Team Throwdown (next update in October)
    Community Playlist: 4v4 - Grifball

    Feels like they are coming back round to a game called Halo.

    I'm done with it now anyway, gold trial just finished and got my fill. Wait and see if Halo 5 is any good.

    Consolidation is good.

    But where's the DLC only list? Boo!

    Starting 9/16, you will need the Majestic Map Pack to play Infinity Slayer. As the goal of this is to gauge if the DLC-required playlist solution is a viable one, we will be monitoring its population closely. The Game of the Year edition of Halo 4 which includes all Halo 4 map packs launches in early October, so we scheduled this change for a time when we can gather data without its impact, then also with it. Id like to stress this is an experiment, and is in no way, shape or form a permanent move at this time. The primary thing to note is we know you want to play your DLC more often, and were dedicated to doing everything we can to make that happen.
    And Jive - YAAAY!

    We already can't play the dlc maps. This must be 343's idea of making it harder to play.

    I suppose if playlists are grouped together and we have a higher player pool then in theory the maps may appear more frequently

    Infinity Slayer requiring DLC is a start. Fewer lists means more likely to get DLC also.

    I still really like Halo4. It's the first Halo I seem to be ok at since Halo 2. Not sure what that means but still enjoy my games on it.

    WTF is this Binary Slayer mode?! Can't decide if I love it or hate it.

    Yeah. I have a love/hate with binary slayer. Can feel great when you get on a roll, but can also be really frustrating (epecially on split-screen where the performance on Forge maps can be choppy).

    What annoys me most with it is the really quick flag respawn times. So you are always fighting for the flag in the same place (probably covered by campers). When flags persist a bit longer after being dropped, you get more variation, I reckon...

    Riccochet is also a rather good addition. A more tactical Grifball, basically. Good fun.

    Yes - Ricochet is a laugh. One thing to watch out for is that you get 50 points for running the ball in and just 20 for throwing it. So try to resist panicking and chucking the ball into the goal...

    Yeah, I didn't learn about throwing until about 4 games in!

    Go to Xbox.com and check your account purchase history.

    Is the map DLC on the marketplace not marked as already purchased anyway for you ?

    Done that, I can't find it on there. The war games map pass is on there but has a price so not redownloadable.

    It'll be the last thing I downloaded, so I had a look and I think (but I can't guarantee) it's down as "The Infinity Actual Kit". Have a look and see if you've got that.

    The actual individual map dlc. Can't you download those for free as you've already redeemed the map pass before?
