Merry Christmas... Hey 343i. Want to know what I want most for a present today??Same. I fit Halo into my schedule to play with my team and community. This entire situation with 343 feels so hostile that I find it hard to even play the game at this point. I've tried to play BTB but I just do not like the way it feels in this game, and I honestly haven't really enjoyed BTB since Halo 3. I played Invasion in Reach, walked away from Halo in 4, and then came back for Warzone in this game.
12man FIRETEAM for Warzone back.
Time to add some constructive feedback
Tbh my desire to play this game has started dwindle, I'm sure we wont even hear or get this reverted back for a few more weeks. I've honestly felt the population starting to feed.
They talk about having a positive conversation with the community, but no one has responded to us. We've only received vague messages and veiled dismissive responses on Reddit and Twitter. This just feels pretty rude at this point. They drop this on us before the holidays and then leave. A bunch of us are finally off and can put the time in to play together and here we are wondering even if we'll ever be able to play together again.
Glad it's not just me feeling this way....I talked to ske7ch and basically I got the vague "were considering this possible senerio and testing will resume post holiday.." Which is basically saying (yeah we hear you, we'll think about it...BTW January doesn't look good for you either.)
I've noticed this whole senerio bring forward In me a vast array of emotions, most times I'm angry over this or completely disgusted....
On my team my squad was defense, I feel its my obligation to look after my crew, I just have to keep reminding myself to stand my ground and continue to push the issue and gain support for 12v12....my conscious is clear as I haven't abused anyone by farming ,ever! I'm thankful for the support from players on the opposite side of things coming forward in this thread and supporting us....even if its harsh criticism, I feel like its going to take people like us to make this thing work..... Ive thought at times where exactly everyone is at and why they haven't come forward by the Masses. I feel its because the shame that's been unjustly placed on us teams (by the whole community not exactly understanding the full situation was entirely in 343's control) that is an undisputable fact!...if 343 cared about farming they would've done something about it long ago, that's not 343 picking sides and choosing one group over another....they care about "blowouts" and theyre using solo players negative feelings towards teams as a shield for lacking the ability to develop an adequate matchmaking that prevents things like this from happening In the first place . Then further adding "dog piling" as a means to talk to then populationd largest player base almost as if to say "were doing this for you guys,back us up"... that IS a load of bull****!!!! Theyve known teams have existed for a while..continued to do nothing and months ago they even said at best it was only 5% of games....that's not a big enough problem to call for an ubrupt change... yet another form of 343 manipulating the emotions of the community of solo players by attempting to create yet another total uproar, (their really good at this BTW) which has most teams sitting back and staying quite probably mostly due to the fact they feel they'll be shamed and angered into a pointless argument that changes nothing.
Remember this! THROUGH COMPETITION, you have an excellent means in which to IMPROVE YOUR PRODUCT...some may think that's funny, stupid or not legitimate to say...I assure you they are wrong!
we are the most dedicated players in this playlist and have seen beyond your own design! we wouldn't be coming here unless our opinions and experience didn't say that there is a better resolution here for everyone.... IT DOES NOT START BY US TEAMS SAYING WERE SORRY, we choose a way we like to play a game and the matchmaking certainly didn't enhance the experience for anyone, what was our choice? Not play because you wont fix the problem yourself?..it is not our job to repair your product if you dont care enough to do it yourself!..that's what you as a company need to fess up to! WERE HOLDING YOU ACCOUNTABLE AS WELL...So what if anyone cares you made a mistake?! in my book if you correct it....that's all that matters to anyone....
This test is absolutly pointless, you know it ...its obvious 6 is less a challenge than 12....no brainer! requires absolutely no testing for my common sense to start tingling about that thought .. I almost be willing to bet that the MORE you reduce the party size to enhance a single players experience I'd say perhaps no fireteam would be even better....that way if some continues to die in warzone going Rambo, they just know the universe is telling them to improve and you completely take the teaming up BS out of the argument...
This decision is about MONEY....either your unwilling to reinvest in your product, or not making enough.....nothing else....
Sooner or later you need to put on your big boy pants and make things right for everyone.....that is what you said right?
