If less experienced players wanna buy mythic packs and support the game that's their prerogative.
Does what they do affect my gaming experience, not at all. I have not seen an increased usage of the latter 3 mythicals and that's reasonable as they're level 7 reqs. The thing is you have to have 7 req energy to spend to get that, and what I think is most people used a 6 energy req right before unlocking level 7 reqs. By the time they get back to 7 req energy they're having second thoughts of spawning a mythic and then afterwards the game ends.
The actual problem is we are not seeing enough of the req 7 mythics despite people buying packs, because most of the time people can't get to that req level, or they ran out of req energy to spawn it cause they spawned something else, and then there's the risk factor.
People don't spawn out it out of fear of dying and losing it to enemy.
The prophets bane is req 6 and unlike the other 3 its a less riskier req to use because of the embedded active camouflage generator and you can get it earlier for cheaper the req coat. The other 3, the tarturus gavel, spnkr prime, nornfang have ways to make you more vulnerable despite the power it gives you.
Comparing this month to other months I would actually say there's no increase in the req 7 mythics, and that its the same kind of people using it which are the SR135 and above.
I've only seen a SR 70 pull out two nornfangs in one game other that in the past 90 or so warzone games I have not seen lower sr's pull out req 7 mythics. Prophets Bane however I saw a very great increase. We're talking 1 in 17 games in past months to 1 in 3 games.
If the other lower mythics like Jorge's chaingun, whispered truth, oathsworn, and HCE anniversary magnum were in packs then yes we would see month of mythic actually doing something to affect gameplay because of its lower req cost.

Bob or Sally are gonna buy 120 SPNKr Primes but they've seen a high SR owning called 'JohnDang55' who's SR146 got to req 9 in 13 minutes while they could only get to req 7 in 15 minutes. They're not gonna spawn a single one cause they're so afraid that a few seconds of spawning it they're gonna get assassinated and this is SR146 is gonna take it.

As it stands month of mythic is an effective way for 343 to make money with extremely extremely small changes to warzone gameplay, as they're just sitting in their req energy waiting for the user to have the skill level and the balls to spawn it. The lower SR's who bought it won't pull it out, and the higher SR's that bought it probably already had a stash of mythics so there's really no differences.
343 industries cannot and should not be criminalised about this. If you want the truth, go ahead and play warzone and see if I'm making this all up, cause I'm not.

TL;DR Month of mythic barely affects warzone. Prophet's bane went from 5.83% (1 in 17 games) to 33.33% (1 in 3 games) used by a huge range of SR.
Tartarus gavel, SPNKr Prime, Nornfang no increase. Only SR135+ are using it, and usage is the same as other months.
Lower SR's who bought the last 3 from packs are unable to get the req level to spawn it, don't have the req energy because they spent it on another req, and are not willing to spawn it because of risk of dying and losing it to enemy.
WZ assault/Wz Turbo, or just people who dont want to invest the time or effort to grind for the best weapons. I'm just a tad upset that Halo went as lower than CoD with the Micro T's.
Just wait till the next turbo drops. WZ will be chaotic af.
According the Late Night Gaming Warzone has been made unplayable because of these cards... But then, I think he might be just embellishing things, because well... He does that a lot.
I play lots and lots of Warzone and I can tell you I haven't seen a mythic since Prophet's Bane pack and I only saw a couple. Month of Mythic has not effected Warzone at all
Thanks for the post OP. So many people overreacted to this. Especially some youtubers. It really hasn't broken the game, and any impact it had will be gone in a few weeks

i wont call out of course, but there was one YouTube channel that made a "rant" video when the prime pack came out, and he/she mentioned that you can get 100,000 RP in roughly 3-6 warzone games. What?! Have you even played halo 5 once??

Some of these people complaining literally have no idea what they're talking about. They just jump on MoM immediately with criticism and mention how it's bad for the game, and how it'll -Yoink- up gameplay, but they don't even have basic knowledge of other aspects of the game. How can you even take their criticism (or channel) seriously when they don't even know the game they're talking about? Maybe they do it for views, maybe they do it because they are genuinely unintelligent, I don't know.

I know right? I haven't seen many people at all use the mythics. Maybe one or two every few games or so.

i wont call out of course, but there was one YouTube channel that made a "rant" video when the prime pack came out, and he/she was mentioning how bad it is that you can buy an OP rocket launcher that "boosts your speed and shields". Boosts your shields?? Uhh, it does NOT do that. Also, they mentioned that you can get 100,000 RP in roughly 3-6 warzone games. What?! Have you even played halo 5 once??

I wish that were true, My gold pack grind would have been done months ago
Honestly, I don't care if it does or doesn't have an impact on Warzone. Makes me think, well what's next? How far are they going to push until the fans say that is enough you know. I just don't like the practice behind it.
I enjoy the part where "most people don't get req 7"

what are they doing? every game i hit req 9 at like 600 points

Just goes to show people will complain about ANYTHING even if they don't know what they're talking about. I don't mind this whole 'Month of Mythic' i mean it's not as if it's on all the time. Just one month. Im sure you'll survive one month. If you don't want the packs, then don't get them, it's that simple. I just think it gives you a chance to utilise those REQ's that we often don't get to use as they're super precious and you don't want to die before using them. If that happens, you'll be crying mythic tears.
Don't play alot of WZ but when I do I have noticed a difference in anything really. Just another overreacting outburst, seems to trend well with this game.
I haven't see a lot either but I still think it's coming. People are probably just trying to save RP instead of using money.
Except low SR people aren't the only people buying them. I'm 147, everything unlocked, and I bought 2 packs of Nornfangs( with RP) just to bolster my reserve. So now I don't feel the need to hold onto them so tightly, I can call one in every game if I so desired.
I just feel it sets a bad precedent and gets very close to being pay-to-win without actually crossing the line. Effectively, anyone who buys the packs buy themselves increased odds at getting powerful weapons in later REQ Packs. Sure, you can use REQ Points, the point cost is high and if you want multiple packs then buying is more efficient. It just doesn't quite sit right for me.
I played around 15 games last night and only saw 1 nornfang.

He does it all the time. I can't take him seriously because of it.

this. its not just the pack thats really the only problem its the idea behind the pack and what its for.Say most people dont want to grind warzone since warzone is mostly boring and the pack cost 100000 req points.Once they have spent it it takes a lot of time to get back to 10000.MS knows that some players feel like this so they exploit our weakness for impatience(those that feel this way) by offering us to pay with real money.If you do that once then do it more and more people do it thats how they will get you.Also future packs could become more money aggressive or however you want to out it.
I agree with you. But you also have to consider that this thing could affect Warzone in the future heavily. If 343 and Microsoft implement Month of Mythic on Halo 6 during launch, then it's seriously going to be somewhat pay to win and a real problem.

I think it's ridiculous how many people overrract about the Month of Mythic in Halo 5, but like I said, I do realize the problem it could become in the future.

As someone who made a big thread lashing out at Microsoft for this a couple of weeks ago, I'm going to try and at least speak on behalf of the people like me who are pretty sure Microsoft would ride this into the ground if they had the chance. We're as angry as we are over this because we want to make it clear that we don't want developers even looking in the direction of Month of Mythic.
