I like the req pack idea better than anything halo has had to offer. I don't want to waste my life working for armor. I'd rather get lucky than watch people with no life get armor that I would have the time to get. Do you realize how hard I work in real life to afford an Xbox one? Or find the time to play and have cool armor doing it? Working hard in a game is not as accomplishing as in real life and spending that hard earned money to open a gold pack and getting a legendary helmet or piece of armor is way more rewarding than who played the most hours. Or found a dumb skull. I have a life outside Halo. I don't want to feel less accomplished than some snot faced kid who has the time to find random crap in the game. I'm an adult who works hard in real life, there for I should have the better armor, after all I spent my own money buying that armor, or my own time, which is money in my world.
You work hard for your money and "have a life", whatever that's supposed to mean. Great. I'd have more sympathy for you if it weren't for the fact that your attitude on this matter sucks.
If it's about spending money, then I should have everything too since I spent a minimum of $800 on Halo 5 between the H5 Console, Limited Collector's Edition and Limited Edition Guide.
I'm only entitled to the exclusive content bundled with the items I paid extra money for, that's it. Anything else? I should work for.
Throwing around extra money isn't how it should work, things should be earned through time and effort. It's this same willingness to throw money around for things like micro transactions that is leading companies to rush games just to release them in time for the holidays, because if someone is dumb enough to buy a dance pack on Destiny or is impatient enough to buy a $2 REQ pack that can be earned in -30 min, then they sure as hell will buy a buggy game that's barely at beta-level development.
Back on subject though..
If you work as hard for your money as you claim, then why spend the extra money you worked for, to just have everything given to you? What is the point of playing video games if you have no goal to work towards or you're not willing to spend the time actually playing the game you paid for? Doesn't really sound like you value your money or the effort it took to earn it. You should consider investing that money, because then it would serve a purpose. Or maybe donating to a charity?
I'm also curious as to how you're entitled to more that that "snot faced kid" if money was still spent purchasing that game for them, and that kid is actually spending time playing that game and you're not. Is your money somehow worth more than the currency that was spent on their copy of the game?
I dunno bud, I think you've got a crappy outlook on things, but I hope you find your money was well spent.
