I just don't understand why they decided to just reduce the xp it wasn't like it was an insane amount for the time and effort that is put into a game of mythic firefight and then to not even mention it as if they were trying to hide it. I just hope this post gets popular enough for someone to see it and maybe realize that the old xp payout was better and revert the changes
To add a couple more points to my argument:

I don't think anyone would ever commit to running a marathon, and then stop at mile 23. So for those of us at level 151, no, we can't just quit and move on to other games. We need to finish the fight.

Also, it's just weird that 343 would mess around with the xp bonus considering h5 has been out for what, 4 or 5 years? They should be doing everything they can to keep an interested player base. Doesn't make sense they're effectively pushing players away.
Its not about if others made it without or not, its the promise of keeping it a permanent playlist with permanent double xp. Its the whole reason I started to go for 152 anyway. Otherwise I would not have started it. But 343 is pretty bad at keeping promisses in my opinion anyway.

Just like October is meant to have double xp on all playlists, they just forgot to mention that playlists that already had double xp, wont count towards it.
, I was confused as to why I'm only getting 10k xp playing mythic firefight. They definitely need to bring back the double xp for mythic firefight. It's not worth playing without the extra xp it used to give. It was the only way I could reach max rank before infinite and now the grind isn't worth it, which sucks because I'm at level 148 and I'm so close to max. This change has completely discouraged me from playing Halo 5, because there's really no point anymore.
Alright, I have been out of the loop for a while but thought I would try and go for 152 now that Infinite is delayed. What should I play to maximize payout seeing that Mythic isn´t always a safe win? WZFF or Mythic WZFF
They say that they are going to do Global Double XP for a Halo 5 5th birthday you would figure for the 5th Halo game on its 5th birthday that they would really amp up this whole Double XP but like in a previous comment somebody stated on this page that if the playlist or he has an XP booster on it then you don't get it but I'm not even concerned about that realistically the biggest problem is that when they shut off the double XP they turned it off for Mythic Warzone that was literally the best and if not the only way to get to Max rank in time for Halo infinite it is completely discouraging and turn off 2 the game knowing that you have to put in double the work then you just previously had to. Not to mention that those last two levels you need 25 million Xperience that is going to take and assload of time. I had about 800 games left with legendary XP boosters now I have to do 1600 not that that is a crazy amount but they're taking away from the people they promised Double XP we didn't get it they took away more than what they even gave us in the first place a mass majority of the people that I played with to go and group up on the grind are upset at this point you might as well just play regular Warzone firefight because it's only about a 2000 XP difference and at least the match caused by a hell of a lot faster. If that's the new way of doing it then by God you're going to lose a lot of player base even the ones that are high levels. I'm level 150 and a half okay I need 20 million XP left why in God's name did you take away the one seemingly good thing that was left to the name of Halo 5 Guardians I just truly do not understand please please if you know what's right you will turn the double XP back on
What sucks even mores is i don't thinks its double exp even on the weekends which makes this game mode useless as regular take less time
This needs to change as heroic is so much easier and only gives 2k less this makes mythic useless and just encourages lower player counts as everyone in that playlist is grinding to 152

That's true, you just can speed core Heroic FF a lot easier and faster, which also give speed bonus xp. There's no reason to play Mythic Firefight.

You can speed core in FF? I thought that was just a normal warzone thing since there's no cores in firefight.
Halo 5 is 5 years old by now. They should increase xp rate not diminish it
Well great, now mythic has no more incentive and heroic warzone firefight is just the way to go now. Way to go 343. Fix this immediately before the playlist dies like honestly.

I understand the frustration in this thread, but you really don't hear the people who hit 152 well before these double XP events complaining about all the double XP events that give people a much easier and faster road to 152. These XP boost events happen as special events, not as the norm. 152 is not something that happens overnight. Keep playing and you'll reach it. If your only goal is to reach 152 and not enjoy the game at any point, then does it really make sense to play at all? I think WZFF is a tacked-on and low-effort mode designed to force players to use REQs, but I still find enough enjoyment to keep coming back to it. Again, I get the frustration, but 343i has done a lot this year to help players gain XP faster, like introducing multiple weeks of double XP and giving out all those Legendary boosts. Perhaps there is something I'm missing here from your perspective, so please tell me if that's the case.
There is little to no enjoyment in playing the same maps, matches, and setups over and over for an endlessly long grind. There are much higher quality and unique experiences available on xbox.

Myself and many others just want to be done with the grind, and move on to the next game.
I agree. So, if you don't find enjoyment in the game, play a different one. Playing just to hit 152 makes no sense, especially considering there is no substantial statement from 343i saying what the point of doing so even is.
The point is getting that emblem in Infinite. It really isn't much, but this'll probably be the only time we'll get it. A lot of us probably won't come back to grind H5 once Infinite is out, but we still want to flex on all the new Halo players with our emblem that we had to put all that effort into. Personally there aren't a whole lot of other games out there right now that even seem that interesting, so I'll just stick with Halo 5.
Then put forth the same time and effort the other 152s did. As I said, everyone got a ton of XP help this year, which is obviously great and appreciated. Most people who hit 152 before all that, including almost everyone in my company, did it without these XP events. As cool as it is to have that token (again, 343i has not specified what it will be), you have to be dedicated to the game. No shame in not reaching 152, but the milestone should not get cheapened for the ones who reached max rank already. It is not meant to be a short journey and permanent double XP, for instance, cuts that literally in half. Putting things a bit more into perspective, you are halfway to 152 after hitting 150 AND gaining 1 million XP on top of that. So, with double XP on all the time, you effectively only have to hit 150.

Most importantly, enjoy the game when you play. There is no point to gaming unless you are having fun. That's what video games were made for in the first place. They were not virtual casinos (except for the actual gambling machines in Vegas) or anything else, just a way to have simple and pure fun.
I have just about 1000 hours on the game already since I've just been playing the game for fun, like you said, and I'm just now starting to care about going for XP, because of that token we get. I'm sure I'm not the only one in this boat. I completely understand where you're coming from on everyone else not getting that double XP and how it's way easier for us now (or at least it was until last week), but it's so frustrating for all of us. We never knew there would be a reward for getting to max rank at first, and now that we do, we don't have a lot of time. I wish 343 had told us earlier, but they probably didn't know then they were going to be giving something out.

The point is, I've played the game and had fun with it, I just won't get that same token everyone else will since I didn't have that fun a certain way (i.e: playing modes that give you a lot of XP). Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there's people with 1000 hours to less who made it to 152. So have I had "more fun" than they have? Am I more deserving of it for playing more? I think that is the underlying problem here: that there are people who play the game for fun, who play it a lot but still haven't made it to 152. Yet they won't get to express that on Halo Infinite. Maybe if they give some other reward for total play time, or matches played, or change the requirements for this one to make it a combination of the 3. But that's just me thinking out loud.
just play ff bro
On Twitter last month, I informed Unyshek that mythic warzone firefight was not getting double XP. Before and during October, I would get 20k from a blue XP boost for a 15m game. He replied directly back to me saying mythic warzone ff would not be getting quadruple XP as mythic inherently has double XP rewards, so it would not be touched during the month of October.

He replied pretty quickly to tell me that. Now? I’ve ranted at him and sketch and 343Postums on Twitter - they’re community managers/directors... and they are SILENT. I know they’re reading our tweets too. If Unyshek said mythic had inherent double XP before and during October so they would not quadruple the rewards during Halo 5’s bday month, why are they so silent now that it’s November and they halve the XP from mythic? Like other people said, there’s only 1k-2k difference now between mythic and heroic warzone ff. It’s not about complaining “oh I’m so close to 152 and now 343 did this,” it’s not about getting XP the way others did before mythic - it’s them going back on their word.

How do you tag people in these forums? I’ve tweeted enough at Unyshek and crew for no response. I would like a COMMUNITY RESPONSE/SUPPORT from COMMUNITY MANAGERS.
Edit: the XP gains were reverted. Thanks to Unyshek and team for seeing and responding to my tweets!
