I'm leaning towards Mercy being a decent Oddball map too. I don't mind it. I agree with A SILENT EMU that putting a few other weapons in the HCS would help change things up and be exciting to watch.RhysWX wrote:Keep the grenade launcher out of competitive - that gun is a joke.

Plus it would just be really nice to get at least one new map in the rotation.
Also, no reason the updated grenade launcher and sword can't be added to a few of these maps.
I kind of disagree with you RhysWX about the grenade launcher. 343I have changed it to make it more skillful, why not see what it can do.... and to be honest, I wouldn't mind seeing some crazy bank shots and such with it.
We all love no scopes with the sniper, or sweet doubles with a well placed rocket shot!! ....but just seeing sniper shots and rocket kills all the time as really the only power weapons gets old. The rail isn't bad and the sword WOULD be fine if 343I would just remove the zoom ability on melee weapons!!! God it's such a bad feature! ...anyways, You aren't going to attract new fans watching with the same things over and over again or new players wanting to play Halo 5 either for that matter, in my opinion. The saying of "variety is the spice of life" applies to many things, including Halo.
