1 + 2) Lol, you don' get it, do you? This is not an idea. BR already exists in Halo. Sure, we can discuss if it should be included in the Playlists - which I wouldn't mind. What you personally want is the exact same concept as Fortnite. How is that innovative? Even though I don't like the RNG System in WZ, I atleast appreaciate an attempt for a new gamemode. What you wan't is bascially the exact same thing like Fortnite with a Halo Skin. Very innovative.
Somehow you have no idea what I want. Might want to make an effort to read more comprehensively in the future. Now: Innovation has no bearing on whether or not a BR mode should be in Infinite. Before Fortnite BR, there was H1Z1 and PUBG. It wasn't innovative when Epic implemented a BR mode in Fortnite, and yet look at how much they've profited from bringing it over. So this "It's not innovative!" argument is meaningless. Maybe that's why I was ignoring it--because it's not worth addressing.
Also, you just
told me 343 needs to play it safe and not copy things from other games...but you're also saying they should innovate? Is this a joke? Innovation is RISKY. Are you honestly telling me you want 343 to play it safe...WHILE trying to innovate? Do you have any idea how hypocritical that is? It seems that not only can you not comprehend what I
want, you can't even nail down what it is You
I don't care about innovating the video game industry. I also don't want Halonite. I want Halo Infinite to be as fun and as successful
as it possibly can be.
And again, you're completly ignoring the other part of my post. I did a specific reference. P2W Warzone has replaced Dev. Made BTB, P2W Assault has replaced Territories, OW CTF, P2W Firefight has replaced Customizable Firefight. Warzone Maps are seperated from the rest of the game. You can't forge on em, you can't play BTB on em, nothing - that means, that 343 would have to double down the number of maps.
You're wrong: You can play custom games on Warzone maps. It just requires a glitch because 343 didn't bother to make it officially available for such purposes. Just because 343 hasn't allowed
us to use Halo 5's Warzone maps for whatever we want doesn't mean we couldn't
. We obviously
could (and do, in some ways, without their permission). I don't see how you could possibly come to the conclusion that those maps couldn't/wouldn't be useful for anything else. You're clearly reaching.
So where's evidence to back the bolded statement?
And as for BTB: It's going to get the shaft because 343 aren't going to go backwards from 12v12 and they're not going to give up on Warzone. BR mode or no BR mode, that's not going to change. If it makes money, stick with it. You don't have to be a game developer to understand such simple things (haha).
You honestly have no basis for saying any gametype REPLACED another gametype. Look at how much work they put into Breakout--the maps, the animations, the settings. Maybe if they had put time into building BTB alongside Warzone instead of building Breakout, we could've had both. And guess what: Warzone and BTB are both in the top 10 most popular gamemodes in Halo 5 (WZ was in 3rd, BTB was in 8th) while Breakout, THEIR ATTEMPT AT INNOVATION, isn't anywhere near that popular. It's pretty clear to me that you're just picking out gamemodes that you don't like and saying, "It's because they made THAT that we don't have (insert gametype I want)!" You're bias is showing.
Tell me now how that should be possible, without additonal, paid DLC OR cutting off BTB again. You don't have to be a game developer to understand such simple things.
3) I'm aware of the fact, that FN is still number 1, while PUBG is already going slowly down (because of their own mistakes)
"A slight downfall would still make Fortnite more popular than Halo has been in a loooong time. You're not making a good case." is what you said. And there is the difference between us. I want to see Halo on top again. And this is not possible with your methods.
Like I've said...how many times now? It worked for Epic games. You're still failing to make your case.
Halo is in a pretty bad spot right now, people expect something big. You have to announce something new, something, that captures people from OTHER audiences as well.
See my second paragraph in this post.
Your advice: PLAY IT SAFE WHILE INNOVATING is oxymoronic.
You're saying it's safer for 343 to develop a completely new idea (which they have a bad track record for doing--Spartan Ops, Breakout, etc.) than to implement a gametype that's already proven to draw the masses. I'm starting to think you're trolling.
Because they already got their BR Experience from other games and they would eventually like to try something new. You don't offer them a new experience - it would be one of many vartions. That is not worth a 60€ purchase from their perspective.
You're all over the place. You're putting a price-tag on this fictional Halo BR mode when you've given no reason why 343 couldn't release such a mode for free or extremely cheap (like they did with Halo 5 forge and customs on PC). Halo's gameplay and art style is obviously different enough to set it apart from the likes of Fortnite and PUBG (if you'd like to discuss that further, I'm willing, but I have a feeling that would be a very short discussion).
Obviously a Halo BR mode alone wouldn't be worth that much money. I never said it would be and it has no bearing on this discussion.
