I can actually see them removing red vs blue for teams. I mean, I don't like it, but it will be interesting to see how the coatings will work with teams...
But it makes sense to have one colour per team not only lore wise, which 343I have said they're all about remember but even just as teams go. You don't watch or play any type of team sport and everyone in the team is wearing a different uniform outfit jersey whatever...even in war they don't do this.
Lore wise, 343 have said the multiplayer maps are holographic simulations that a Spartans train in. So having one team one color and another team another color makes sense there as well... But I'm sure 343 will change that to fit whatever they want to do just like they tried to do with the ADS style zooming animation being added in Halo 5.
I don't know, if they get rid of the whole red versus blue, I think they're destroying a huge thing of Halo lore, legacy and everything that's come with it since CE.
I think it's also worth acknowledging that yes, we have been given very little information to go on about this new coating system and how it will function in-game. But the reason so many people have been focusing on this and have been upset is because this is the ONLY official news we've gotten in months about in-game features. The only reason they've explained the system in the first place is because of leaked images from a marketing campaign to get people to buy snack food. So in combination with giving us our first piece of real news in a long time and the sudden reveal that a customization feature that has always been in the game is suddenly gone without fully explaining how this new system works? What are Halo fans supposed to do with this information? Should we just sit on it for another few months and hope that we got it completely wrong? Maybe if 343 actually gave us an in-depth explanation on this system, and showed in game shots or footage of using the different coatings on armor and vehicles, then we could fully understand how it will replace the old two-tone color customization. But all they've given us is another 2 coatings to look at, and told us that this is what is replacing color customization. Fans have a right to be upset, and if the only news we get is about a controversial cosmetic micro-transaction system, you bet we will be upset.
I agree sort of. I think even if 343 had released a lot of news that a lot of people would still be not happy about this.... But that leads to my bigger question of well why haven't 343 released basically any news about the new Halo game?
It's not like it's years away or anything like this. Personally, I think it's because they are drastically changing so much in the new Halo game because it's free to play (I'm talking multiplayer only here obviously) And they know it's going to upset a good chunk of their fan base especially the original fans that they are waiting as long as possible to reveal information because they don't want months and months of negative press. Just honestly think about it for a second or two. What other explanation could there be for them to be this silent about their game. I understand them not wanting to show game play footage especially right now but there's so many things they could show or talk about still. I don't know what other explanation there can be.
I also don't understand the logic of, In this case 343I talking a little bit about a system (color system in this case) that they KNEW would upset A LOT of people (They even said it in the weekly community post) and not come out to answer those questions or even better, go more in depth as to what they're thinking/doing in this area. All this is doing is giving them such negative press and pissing off their fans. I don't know who's running there marketing or whatever or who's idea it is to do this but they need to wake up!! (Wake up John, Wake up!!! LoL) In this thread alone on waypoint and not even in 12 hours, it's gone from a few pages to over 20!!! And that's just on here. Go look at other social media stuff and what people are saying... Here's a hint, It's not good lol
343 haven't earned the right from their fans for us to give them the benefit of the doubt I'm sorry to say so they need to be way more, emphasize WAY more transparent in what they're doing here and a lot of other things in general.
If anyone else has an explanation as to why they haven't released any more info or talked about things they're doing for multiplayer wise, please put it on here because I can't think of a good logical reason as to why they wouldn't because it's definitely not building up hype and it's definitely not giving them good press that's for sure lol 😆
