Exile was in the top 3, if not best, btb map ever made. I agree H4 fell apart at the end, when they dropped power weapons every two feet, so it no longer took skill, map control, nor team work- all it took was power weapons every five feet. I think 343 is going to really fracture the btb community- which when I played had the most player count- by having btb and war zone. I hope it turns out to be good or the fix it ASAP. I'm not sure how req points will help the game be better more so than help 343's bottom line. Paying to short cut the process of earning skill is a really short sighted move towards the dedicated halo community. Why play for 100s of hours to earn skill when you can just drop some cash for a short cut to get around having to do the work for yourself. It has become Battlefield and CoD all over in this regard. A balanced game should be how all halo games are- equal load outs and abilities to all players, all equal load out options and armor abilities to all players, etc. this has turned into a pay to play game like the aforementioned Battlefield and CoD. Bungie's Halo model is the gold standard and should be the path followed because your ability to win didn't depend on how much money you had to spend nor ow many hours you could sit send play to earn req points, it was dependent on the things that should count- your ability at the game, your tactics, and your teamwork. God 343 don't forsake the one truly good game for Xbox. Also, replacing master chief w/ a new character is not ideal because of the journey and time we have invested into Master Chief but I can see how you may not want to repeat the same character arc over each story but the btb playlist is inexcusable. I'll finish with an idea about adding classic halo 2 maps like Terminal, Headlong, Burial Grounds, and Relic back into the btb map list. These were great maps that had a balanced flow to them. Idk if you can since Bungie made them but it would be cool without a doubt. Don't fumble the btb playlist, please. If you want to fracture the population of gamers who play big team, then like I said - btb objective and btb slayer. In fact, at least add some objective games back into btb.
Don't mess up the big team population.
