Halo Community is Halo's biggest problem
No doubt that 343 deserves constructive feedback, keyword being constructive, however it's not just one side or the other. While 343 has made questionable decisions with Halo 5, (maybe microsoft had to do with that more than 343 who knows) and they have got that constructive feedback and criticism, there are also so many people who give destructive feedback, which can't be ignored. I've seen both sides, so I just wanted to clarify. The MCC and Halo 4 can't be ignored either. The MCC launched in a super buggy state, and later on, they've been improving the game substantially, but still, we can't forget the launch. I honestly really like Halo 4, but I won't deny that it changed a lot of things, and many people weren't fine with that. I've seen plenty of comments about the art-style, sprint, ordnance, loadouts, and tons of people calling it a Call of Duty game. Halo 5 launched in a questionable way for me, and I'm pretty sure many other people as well. It didn't have split-screen, which was crazy, because it was a feature in every first person shooter halo game before it. I just assumed it was gonna be there. It also added in the req system, which was the first time Halo got microtransactions, and that's controversial by itself. Again, 343 updated that game to be much better than it was at launch.WerepyreND wrote:I really hate this community blaming nonsense. 343 started out mending the rift in the community Bungie had caused with Reach. Then apparently they decided to drive a wedge into said community by doubling down on all of Reach's most controversial aspects. Then they "listened" to the feedback by mostly doing more of the same while giving classic fans some token concessions like equal starts(in Arena, Warzone is just Halo 4: the gametype) and descope while changing the core player experience even more than they did in H4.
343 doesn't deserve any sympathy for having to deal with a "variety" of Halo fan when they created this situation in the first place. I really tired of portions of the community playing corporate defender and constantly trying to deflect criticism by framing the community as being "picky" or "unappreciative" of 343's position.
Yes, a fractured fanbase because of a new company that threw the old fans away in favor of catering to completely different audiences.harithavaraj wrote:Halo community reminds me a lot of the Star Wars community, and you can see what the Star Wars community is going/has gone through.
