Please stop posting excessively stupid hyperbole. You not liking the content 343 put out doesn't mean they didn't put out content.commando544 wrote:H5 received no new content, only removed content like infection and BTB.

If Infinite can nail these 3 things, it'll have a great and consistent player base for years to come.
1. Fun gameplay with very few to no bugs.
2. Consistent and engaging stream of unlockable content.
3. Effective anti cheat.
- Not having to deal with hackers is literally why I stopped playing PC games. If I have to deal with cheaters because of cross play, I'm going to be very upset.
Sticking with H5 through the end of its content and experiencing 343's live service approach with MCC make me believe we're going to have an awesome time with Infinite. Especially if the gameplay falls somewhere in the middle of H3 and H5 like I'm hoping it will.
Also I wouldn't advice being grateful for the MCC content, nobody asked for it and 343 is only doing it to buy time for Infinite ( the games aren't even fully fixed! ) if 343 had just released MCC as an actual working product it would be decently popular today and would require little extra content aside from playlist rotations and a customs browser
But saying that H5 didn't receive a steady stream of content for almost two years, and complaining that MCC is getting "new content that no one asked for" is just such an entitled mindset I don't even know how to converse with you about it.
Can't people just be happy that we're getting new content in games that are 10+ years old, and a guarantee of steady new content in Infinite?
We could be living in a world where MCC is dead in the water, and the only way to play MP is only H5 or backwards compatibility of each individual old title. We wouldn't have HCE or H2 online MP, we wouldn't have Halo on the PC, and we would soon not even be able to connect to old Halo titles MP servers. Show some darn appreciation for goodness sakes.Edit: Reselling 70% of content? H5 and MCC's added content were all free, aside from the Reach and ODST add-on's for MCC technically I guess.
New weapon skins,
New req weapons,
New load out weapons,
New announcer voices,
New arena playlists,
Custom games browser
And it's not like there was a small amount of each of those items listed either. Just admit you're wrong and be quiet.
To go back to the original topic, I still stand by the statement that Infinite having fun gameplay and a steady stream of new content is going to do exactly what the OP said, and start a new golden age of Halo.
