Thanks everyone for all of the feedback so far - just letting you know that I (and the team) are reading each and every post. Obviously there's a lot to digest - some people love one thing, some people hate that same thing. Change overall is never easy, especially not after 2 years honing your skills on the original weapons. As the team sifts through feedback and data I'll be sure to share additional details pertaining to any additional iteration that may (or may not) be on the horizon. This is a process - the sandbox team is still closely monitoring.
I have a hard time understanding this post and all of its contradictions. It would seem you put out quite a lot of P.R. posts boasting how you are "digesting" and "Listening", But it begs the question: IF you are so focused on your community, Why not just put a pop up prompt that asks "Do you like the new BR? Press "B" for NO!, and "A" for yes. Wouldn't this save a lot of forum reading and verbal massaging? I mean, you guys spend countless hours reprogramming and doing all the numbers while boasting about how community focused you are, yet you say things like "any additional iteration that may (or may not) be on the horizon", What is this? some kind of ambiguous play on your hard core fans emotions? Im sure there is a voice in that thick Egocentric layer of 343 ether that says, "hey we do all these community updates, why not just look at the votes? put in a quick Vote on weather or not people like it and just post the percentages. I know you guys work hard and love this game, but lets drop the act here and see what the people say, Hey if my beloved Halo Brothers love this update so much, show me the numbers and I will diminish into the minority. Also, the 4k update looks insane on the Scorpio ( I got mine yesterday) I am shocked at its beauty, it is just a shame I have to use the BR on viking and that a 343 employee suggested to drop a few friends from my fire team to find a match better, Is that a solution? tell my team to play Rock, paper, scissors, and the loser has to go play with EXO? all those algorithms and fancy matchmaking math, where the quotient comes out to equal..... Tell a friend to kick rocks ?
