I used heat maps all the time for that same reason.Heat maps were one of my favorite strategy tools as well. Especially for seeing where I died the most.R0L0 wrote:I forgot about heat maps! Those were great. Friends and I used to determine how we can adjust our playstyle to control kill zones better.
Actually I would love that Ranking system. It's what made halo fun for me. It also is more consistent than the current one in place. Your unpopular opinion is my unpopular opinion.
In addition to this and the OP, I totally agree.Actually I would love that Ranking system. It's what made halo fun for me. It also is more consistent than the current one in place. Your unpopular opinion is my unpopular opinion.
Halo 3 was my baby. It was the very first first person shoot I have ever played. I logged so many days of playing time across multiple accounts and Halo is really what showed me what competitive gaming is and how much fun a game can be. Ahh the feeling of getting my first 50 was just so satisfying =)
One thing that really bothers me with this game is that communication system within fireteams. THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED!!!
Why is it so hard to see who is talking in the pregame lobby? Why do I have to join a party chat just to talk to my team? I cannot tell you how many times I have been playing by myself and get paired up with 3 other teammates that are all in party chat and then there is no communication. There has been numerous 48-50, 49-50 games that I could've won if the communication was there. Does anyone else feel this way?
I'll admit there was probably a few tweaks that could be made, but it was definitely my favorite as well.MySniperCheatzz wrote:Halo 3 had the best ranking system IMO
Wow now that you mentioned it, i really miss the multi team playlist too !!!!thebryon wrote:multi team now 343 please
I totally forgot about it lol, it was so much fun having 4 teams each consisting off 2 players all fighting against each other and the often chaotic elements it had, damn that nostalgia feeling o.o
Halo 3 was just so much more fun in its prime...
Face the facts, bungie (pre-destiny, and pre-activision) was in an entirely different league than 343. Bungie at the time was known for upper echelon quality, and community involvement. 343 doesn't come close in either regard as a developer. You should just expect continued mediocrity from 343 in the future.
Now I know some of you are thinking, "We already have Ranked and Social playlists" and you would be correct. I'm saying we need complete playlists.
In my opinion having the separate playlists will filter out the match up inconsistency that we see so much of in Arena. I'm not saying it will eliminate the problem, but I do believe it will make a difference.
- Ranked (Big Team, Slayer, Arena, CTF, Assault, Breakout, etc)
- Social (Big Team, Slayer, Arena, CTF, Assault, Breakout, Action Sack, GrifBall, etc)
Does this one really need explaining? I mean who doesn't like to see their carnage report full of Multikills and Killing sprees?! Who your rival was. Who you killed the most and your Tool of Destruction! The Prestigious MVP award telling all the other Spartans you mean business.
Yes I know, this may just be a curse word on this site.I love halowaypoint, it's the first site I've really tried to be involved with when it comes to the community. That being said, can I just point out that after 8 YEARS we still don't have anything close to as good as bungie.net? I would like to think that after 8 years we be able to come up with some amazing new way to view our complete spartan history.
Bungie.net had everything. The UI was simple yet elegant. Career Stats, Heat Maps, Ratings, Campaign Stats, Custom Game Stats, Game History. You could organize stats by map and gametype. You had the ability to compare against friends and other gamers. Bottom Line it's superior to what we currently have.
I'm not trying to say what we have is horrible, because quite honestly it's still great. I'm just saying that with all the time that has passed, it could be far better than anything that we've seen.
Thanks for reading, share your thoughts! I want to know if you guys think I'm out of my mind or if you agree.
