strongly agree with this. You and 343 are forcing a broken update that nobody in the community has asked for and left us to just make do with the horrendous gameplay you left us with. Im convinced that you guys refuse to listen to anything that we ask for. As far as the magnum being OP; of course its going to be considered "op" when you nerf every other weapon in the game. It boggles my mind and a lot of others too that you guys cannot simply give us what we asked for, and this is not the first occasion. Get your stuff straight and actually take the time to reach out to find what the community wants versus what you think is best (worst) for the game. Listen to the professionals and the majority of the community who is literally not playing your game any longer because of this stupid update.lFi3RY wrote:so can you not, and can you guys actually listen to the players and all the pros who are saying to change it back. Like sure if its better down the road then test it again. however do not keep forcing stuff we clearly do not like down our throats.ZaedynFel wrote:I think we'll see an additional tweak on the weapon tuning down the road that will address BR and other weapon feedback, but the magnum is now over-powered and so doesn't work for competitive. There would basically be no reason to have any other weapons on the map, which given our current history we have found to not be a successful approach. We're currently only putting actual HWC candidate map/modes into that playlist.GetTrashedOnJR wrote:So people who are mid-plat players have an increased chance of matching against champions and Onyx players? It doesn't seem fair on paper, I'm sure you have already thought about that and will be suggesting to people who will complain about this on how to make it a less of a chance. However, this will only make the mid-plat players not wanting to play the HCS list because they have the slightest chance of matching someone/some people who are leagues above their skill level; and with the population count of Halo 5 is depleting, this will only speed up that process (in my opinion anyway).
Also, I am glad you are slowly adding different game-types into the Oddball playlist but I think it should have been Strongholds. As CTF and Slayer seem to be a lot slower due to the nerf and players will eventually get bored of it. Can you maybe put magnum starts back into the HWC Oddball playlist? As currently the new BR isn't consistent and can be often dropped for another weapon; as well as, not bothering with the gunfighter magnum... because it's a weird idea for a secondary (again in my opinion).
