I disagree with all of this except for number 2.H4m Assassin wrote:1. TIMERS: Eliminate weapon/equipment timers and AI heads-ups from ranked play. Talented players will do just fine using their own map awareness. I don’t mind keeping these features in during social matches.
2. STILL TOO MUCH DIALOGUE. Give us the ability to toggle off each personality (AI, announcer, chatter, Spartan commander, etc.). Additionally, let us select what types of dialogue we hear. Example: I don’t care that my AI sees headshots in my future, but I do want to know that the overshield spawned.
3. IN-GAME SCORE? What’s its purpose? We only gain XP through completing battle pass challenges. You might as well get rid of the screen clutter by getting rid of the points we score and even medals since they don’t contribute to XP either.
4. OPTION TO TURN OFF INTRO CAMERA PAN. Watching the cringe animations at the beginning of each match and poses at the end immediately strips these “Spartans” of all credibility that they are professional supersoldiers. Punching the air before a gunfight? The I’m too cool to take this seriously guy?
5. I turned the music off. I love the new campaign tracks and remixes, but the Infinite MP does not feel Haloish at all. Give us a new theme to choose from with each season.
If you would like to create a tournament mode or MLG settings of some sort to handle 1 and 3 that could be ok.
I agree with item 2 and would like customizable dialogue.
4 is purely cosmetic so a setting for that could be ok too, but I like to see the armor of my teammates as it helps me distinguish them from the enemy team during the game.
I would also like to say thank you for changing the threat tracker back to a motion tracker, but the player outline system is a little jarring with everyone glowing one color or the other. Could you add an option for the player outline system that either lets us turn off outlines and replace it with the ID Tags above our teammate's heads? Or possibly even a way to force armor color based on team as a personal setting that only displays for those who have that setting turned on? In StarCraft for example, there is a toggle that will change all teammate character colors to yellow, and all enemy character colors to red.
