Fair enough, I know 343i has to look at the bigger picture, that feedback is just what I personally would like to change, that's my ideal BTB, I know that not everyone wants the same thing.eLantern wrote:Understood. Just realize that 343i have to balance your "fun" with the "fun" for others too which makes the "fun" a subjective goal.Fully Skully wrote:The problem is I'm not having nearly as much fun as I did and that's what I want when I'm playing a video game; fun.eLantern wrote:There were numerous issues with the pre-tuned H5BR negatively impacting map movement and vehicle use. While the weapon and in-turn the gun-play were likely a more enjoyable experience the actual game-play suffered as many more matches boiled down to stand-offs and spawn traps.Fully Skully wrote:I disagree, I had a lot more fun in BTB pre-BR nerf (and the entire game in general for that matter) and I don't see why that wouldn't still apply.I never said I liked the current gun-play. I'd much rather see the Long-Barrel variant of the H5BR replace the current H5BR and I laid out detailed reasoning for why HERE. It should vastly improve the sandbox balance within the social and arena environments. But, if you were to ask me whether I preferred using the pre-tuned H5BR vs the current regular H5BR within the BTB playlist; well, I'd have to say that while I enjoyed using the pre-tuned H5BR more I did not enjoy the game-play more.Quote:That's fine if you like it how it is now but for me I'm not having even half the fun I used to and it sucks because I'd love to play more H5 but ever since the BR update I don't really want to.
On a personal level, I believe I'd have more fun with the BTB playlist if the JiP was re-activated with appropriate policy changes relating to CSR and quits. And it'd be great if people searching under various connection preferences were afforded some time-based protections from potentially getting dragged into a crazy unbalanced match. In fact, I'd prefer that some balance limit was actually brought back to the playlist preventing absurdly lopsided matches from even being possible since it should help curb the playlist (and game) from losing players on a more permanent basis.I agree that the arena is great and that the standard Magnum is a fun primary precision loadout for the majority of 4v4 modes, but I also believe that the "Battle" playlist should feature the Battle Rifle as the primary precision weapon.Quote:Arena is great because at least the magnum is fun but BTB was my main thing and now I just don't care about it.
Let me ask you this, which online Halo title had your favorite BTB playlist?
As far as what my favourite BTB is I'd have to say either H2 or H5 pre-BR nerf, I think I'd give the edge to H5 though, ever so slightly.
