I just mean to be fair here, in defence of commando544 he/she didn't really claim that these weren't subjective opinions, nor asked for a debate about it. I personally didn't interpret it like that at all.
DisappointedUnfun and badly designed are both subjective. But then again, you stated yourself that you've always hated it, and always will, so trying to have any reasonable discussion with you would be utterly pointless, as it seems you're just here to complain.
343 brought back an unfun and badly designed weapon for the initial launch of the game, the new design is fine enough. Always hated it and always will, considering the skill cap revolves around zooming and firing and letting the rockets do all the work for a free kill ( on open maps with little cover: AKA most H5 maps )
(By the by, while Halo 5 was a subpar Halo game, the maps definitely didn't lack in cover, so I'm not sure where you pulled that out of.)
I asked for opinions. So whether people wanna praise, analyse or just plainly express their complaints about it, that's fine by me.
Perhaps. But a forum is a place to discuss, argue, and converse. If someone's entire modus operandi is simply to make opinionated bitter comments with no intention of adding anything of substance to the conversation, and maintaining a closed mind, then they're not much use here.
Saying you'll always hate a weapon, which has thus far had one design iteration is both closed minded, and unhelpful. We don't know how the gun will operate. We don't know what changes will be made to it. Commenting on that would be constructive. Commenting on being worried about how it will function, would be constructive. Commenting on changes you've like to see with it, would be constructive. commando544 did none of those things. As such, I can't help but imagine that this was merely another excuse for them to take lazy shots at 343i.
There is always room for criticism. But it is always best when it is informed criticism, rather than ignorant whinging.
