I find it a little ironic how Killer Instinct has Elites and Halo 5 doesn't.

Yeah that's a load of -Yoink- that KI has elites in multiplayer before the damn game they came from in the first place.
This will last until we finally get them back, and when they do, Elites must return in style.
Oh Back in Black by AC/DC would so work as a tribute song to Elites returning in their teaser trailer
No I have an even better idea for there returning song

No they can very well ignore us, we might have to get this thread to over 1000 pages before we get our elites.
1000? I'm sure that's doable

You guys do know that 343 don't actually read the forums, right?
So a monitor found my post and redirected me here, so I will just copy and paste my post.

I will be honest. When Halo Reach came out, I wasn't going to buy it at all. It was only after 3 weeks, that my friend was showing me all of his armor customization when I saw all the cool Elite player models. I played as a Spec Ops elite in Halo 3, and I fell in love with all the new designs for the elite armors. I thought it was so cool that I sped down to the local Gamestop and purchased a copy. Also, Arby n the Chief (a series mostly forgotten by the community, back for one final season) was making use of the new Elites to the fullest extent, so I absolutely had to wear it. I played infection until I was Corporal and put it on. Yeahhhh.

Fast-Forward to Halo 4. I got the game for a birthday present from a friend and thought of the Elites I saw in online videos and articles. I loved them and hopped on to unlock them. But to my dismay, you could not change your player model from human. Why did this change, honestly?Before anyone says "play MCC or Reach for xbone", I am talking about the here and now, not games that I have exhausted. I am ready for elites to be introduced to Halo 5 or maybe Halo 6. Let me dismiss some common arguments.

Elites in Halo 5 are massive and have a different hitbox.
Did you not play Reach? Elites were big in that game, some models towering over spartans. Would it really be that hard to make a players elite model a tad shorter?

Why would Elites be in the UNSC war games simulations?
If you look in the lore, after the human-covenant war, most elites joined the human cause, even trading weapons and training in the same environment as spartans aboard the UNSC Infinity carrier.

In Warzone, why would Elites fight other elites?
The enemy AI elites programmed into war games simulations are based off of the enemy that Spartan IVs would encounter on the battlefield; Covenant Remnants. In campaign, the Arbiter and his followers are seen absolutely destroying other elites.

Elites can't have spartan charge and other abilities because they aren't "spartans"
Elites in Reach had their own jetpack, and their own visor layout. Just like Master Chief, who had thrusters put into his armor before the events of Halo 5, the human-allied Sanghelli can have thrusters implemented into their armors.

What purpose would having Elites serve in Halo 5?
Well, some Halo Machinimas need alien characters, like C n P and Arby n the Chief. Also, with the new forge allowing you to build huge creations (for example, a huge covenant or ex-covenant cruiser), they need an alien crew, do they not? And finally, you can have some variety in your armor customization, so you don't HAVE to look like a noob wearing Recruit, a try-hard wearing Warmaster, or a kid using Teishin (all opinions, don't get butthurt lmao)

How would Elite customization work?
I would imagine it working like it did in halo, with the player being able to change the head, shoulders, and chest-piece. You would be able to unlock Elite armors through the REQ system. They could be implemented during "Memories of Reach", with the new Storm Elites, and old Halo Reach style armors. To add another company commendation award, if a company has earned all the kill commendations (equating to earning the Achilles Helmet), the player would earn the "Rise above the Heritics" pack, earning the Halo 2-3 style Arbiter armor.

Assassinations?
Elites could have their own new assassinations in the REQ system, copy and paste from Reach, or even just mimic spartan assassinations. All human on elite assassinations would be the same as human on human

Small bit and and off trail, can anyone help out and take a look at the new Dynast Armor? Call me crazy but there's a massive resemblance to the minor Storm sangheili armor on it. Specially the legs and shoes... Oh right, the forehead and shoulders look like them too.

Gee, another armor set that's sangheili based...if only..

Why not?, I guess they might be busy and all but if I was developing or developed a game id look at the forums every now and again to see players feedback.
I miss elites. I stopped playing Halo Reach last year, and I miss being able to play as them or play with people playing as an elite. Elites in Halo Lore joined Spartans in simulations. I just miss seeing them, I hope they will be in the next update.

you make good points but people still want them back
Its not impossible for Sangheili to return, if anything it adds diversity to the game and makes it more interesting

I think it's supposed to resemble the storm elite's armour. Seeing as the Swords of Sanghelios also used the same armour, some variants have the SOS emblem on it.
Yeah it does actually

I am for the addition of elites, not against.
1000? I'm sure that's doable
Definitely doable
I'll keep posting til the day I die if necessary. They'll never hear the end of it. Not until Playable Elites return anyway. And even then, they might need some constant "reminders."

Good. You know the mods might just lock this the day we finally get our playable elites back. But it won't matter because we would have made the push to get what we wanted.
