...now that people are on the new Xbox Series X. They're moving twice as fast, and completely untouchable. I keep quitting out when I get matched up against people like this, because it's just no fun anymore when it's so lopsided. Before all this, I made Onyx. Now, I can't even get past Diamond 2. In fact, I'm down to Platinum 5 now. It's b.s. They should have their own gaming servers.
I recorded a video clip of me throwing a plasma grenade on an enemy. It hit him in the back and it just slid off. He ended up killing me because he jumped behind a wall. Just when I was chasing him, his teammate split my reticle and I couldn't shoot him. I got doubleteamed with my original target killing me. It's such b.s. How does my plasma nade just slide off his -Yoinking!- back????
I've experienced situations where I've stuck someone on the rig in slayer and the nade exploded doing 0 damage and the dude ends up killing me. I've experienced blank shots, blank melee, my shots not even making sounds, etc.
Do people on the new console have a slight advantage? Well let's see. Casual players that play this game have made threads saying it fixes heavy aim. Professional players like snakebite have made YouTube videos saying it fixes heavy aim. (Even before we knew this, his team mate lethul did NOT join his team in all of the recent tournaments BECAUSE it was on console, not PC, and the game HAS heavy aim problems...YouTube streamers like reclaimer have made videos saying the same thing about the new console. Is it all just in their heads? No....these guys play the game every single day... I think at this point one can see it no longer as an opinion. They won't experience heavy aim like others do..which can be at multiple levels. They'll feel really bad lag in matches that are full of lag still...but those will feel as how it feels in other games where players teleporting around, but at least your reticle sensitivity isn't going haywire admist all the chaos.
What you're describing is not due to them playing on the newer console though. You had lag in the match on top of unfortunately choosing to chase a kill. Reticle splitting really sucks when you know you would have gotten the kill for sure.
The new console won't magically make players move faster or become invincible. There's much more to being at that higher level than just good accuracy. Does it help? I'm sure it does...heavy aim is super annoying...I wish I had a fix for that damn crap...but lots of players without the new console still play at the high level. Not every single match has heavy aim.
I love playing h5. For me, those lag problems suck, but at the top of the list I just hate how rank progress works in the game, and how bad matchmaking is. If you've got some homies to play with tho, sure it sucks losing the onyx rank. I've felt it lol. But with the homies it doesn't matter. Play for fun. The rank progress bar....I mean if it doesn't budge in a game where I beat 3 onyx players because they had a cheap sauce silver account on their team...but next match they win by a small margin and I go down an entire rank bar...I mean...what can you do....its not that serious. I'm not gonna tell a friend to make an alt acct and rank bronze or silver just to have a easy cheap way to a higher rank tier. Manipulating the system in that form will unfortunately always exist.
So get some friends and just play cause you love halo man. We can't always have that perfect game let alone perform at our best each match.
