Yes the Vidmasters should return....I'd rather see armours be unlocked by meaningful challenges instead of mindless grinds to unlock armours....what ShortySL said makes no sense. Vidmasters encouraged fans to work together and lead to many fans being encouraged to do fun things while Halo 5 turned everything into a grind, killed any need to get friends together to do 'fun things', if everything becomes a 'grind' again then things are going to get boring fast.You do realise that Recon armour had NOTHING to do with Achievements initially right? The Vidmasters became a big "screw you" to the special few that did something truly awesome to receive Recon.
Wait, didn't they get a flaming version of the helmet though or do I remember it wrong? The one that initially was only for Bungie devs basically.
Regardless, it's not about the helmet at all: vidmasters were fun things to
do and did bring the community more together
, that's the point. So of course those are miles better than the RNG gambling "yoink" that H5, GoW4, various Forza's and so on had! I hope MS stops introducing them already, because I won't buy anything with such an annoying grind system ever again. Not even Halo Infinite.
Therefore I still hope we get a mix of credits and skill based unlocks, where generic cosmetic stuff is bound by a Reach like credit system (limited by levels and without going overboard with the grind obviously
) and some of the more legendary stuff you can only get by achieving certain objectives. Best examples getting brutally hard to obtain medals, finishing the campaign on legendary solo or even finishing a mission with all skulls active and such. And why not? A yearly vidmaster too! :)
