So because it MIGHT develop into people selling accounts there shouldn't be a good reward for a difficult challenge? I'm sorry but that's not really a valid reason to not have a really good reward for a really hard challenge. If someone wants to buy an account solely because it has an armour set that was hard to unlock then that's on them to make that choice. Which is something really stupid. Would you do it? No I doubt you would you seem to have decent head on your shoulders. Would you attempt LASO if the reward was good enough. Probably I think you'd attempt it at least. Would you not attempt at all because LASO is hard? I can see that with you too but that's on you to decide to take the challenge or not. Back with the vidmaster challenges I was eager to get them done and completed because I wanted recon even tho I don't think it actually looks that good. I just liked the challenge. To deny gamers like me a challenge and reward for completing the challenge because a minority might sell accounts just seems unreasonable to me. X11 XOMAN private messaged me suggesting that there shouldn't be a hard challenge with a good reward because casual gamers wouldn't bother trying LASO. But the beauty of campaign is that you don't have to do it all at once. You can take your time to break through the barrier so casual gamers can still do it if they felt like it. You're telling me that some people might sell accounts which "decreases the value" but I don't think that's true because value is subjective. Especially with fictional items like armour in a game. People who earned it will still hold it in high value, they're not going to care how other people got it. They just care that they got it legitimately. So I will stand by my view that LASO can be used for some cool armour because everyone can achieve it if they want to
Because cool armors that people can't get , incentivizes a "black market" for them that inherently decreases the value of said items. I'm not saying a good reward is not eligible. I am saying that by maximizing the reward , you are incentivizing the have-nots to go to ridiculous lengths in which to get it , which in the long run completely destroys the point of the reward.
So because some people are dumb enough to buy an account for an armour set then LASO, or any difficult challenge, shouldn't be in the next halo? (I know that's not what you mean I'm just making a point) whether it's a series of hard challenges or just one there should a good reward for completing it and I don't see why an armour set can't be the reward. Especially a good armour set. I look at MCC and I want to do the LASO play lists but a banner isn't enough for me to attempt them. If I was unlocking some armour or special effect then I'd be way more determined to try. Give people a reason to try and they will put the effort in. Initially I only used LASO an example for the unlock system but now I actually want something to entice me into the challenge otherwise then no one actually will give LASO a go without a good reward to bring them into it
Yes I remember them , and I also remember that all of them required a team. Granted this didn't make all of them easier (looking at you ODST) , but it made all of them fun and entertaining at least , LASO is just an experiment in frustration for most players. As I said , I get bragging rights .......but locking one of the better sets behind a challenge that most people won't even attempt , much less complete , is a total waste of time and resources better spent elsewhere.
Why have one locked behind LASO? Remember the vidmaster challenges? A helmet was locked behind a series of hard achievements. I don't see why there cant be a set locked behind one really hard challenge
I don't know that a whole armor set should be locked behind LASO , but I could see a particular helmet or chest piece (Hyabusa w/ sword , for example [I know Hyabusa isn't likely to return , but you get the point]). I would prefer the LASO and Speed run challenges unlock variants , colors , or nameplates/symbol designs........special indicators for bragging rights I get , the coolest / best looking pieces in the game.......not so much.
Why not? Why not have a reward or armour piece that let's you proclaim on visuals alone "I completed LASO". It'll be hard but then you'll be part of the small population that put the effort in for the bragging rights and the cool armour. Imagine being one of the few who earned that unique and hard to aquire item. Feels good when it happens. Fustrating till then
There definitely needs to be a proper reward system. Want chiefs armour? Complete the campaign. Want Mark 5? Do it legendary. Mark 4? Do it LASO. Want Gungnir? Get a double kill with one splasher shot in pvp. Want Scout? Get sniper kills. Want recon? Get assassinations or something you get the idea.Please not LASO!
There should be a credit system like reach as well for armour attachments, skins and effects.
Seriously , if you look at Halo 3 and Recon.....there were people who were willing to pay for accounts just to have it. When that happens all your bragging rights go out the window , along with any credibility the piece or pieces bring.
Go tell the bolded part to Halo 3 Fifty Ranks. So many who got it legitimately were derided and insulted ad nauseum , simply because it was a possibility they had bought it. So much so , that many of them were asking Bungie to either reset all accounts or their own , just to avoid the stigma. I had several friends capable of making 50 but never pushed because they didn't want the backlash. It's o.k. that we agree to disagree , and I hope you get what you want and it makes you very happy , just be warned there wil be those who will insult you just for being part of that group. I wish you luck.
Just an aside , No , I have not completed nor attempted LASO , I have no interest in subjugating myself to that type of masochism.....as the Black Widow said "there are some questions I don't need answered".
