I understand that in MLG it would be a little weird. Since every MLG FPS game doesn't have a speices that changes the way you have to fire even by a little bit. So i understand many of the True MLG gamers would have an issue with Elites being allowed in MLG gametypes but why does everyone else hate them. When i first heard Elites being able to be played in Halo 2. Me and my friends were bouncing off the walls. It blew our minds to be playing as aliens and the Campaign made me become a huge Sangheili fan. I was squeaker back in Halo 2(shrugs) but i don't really recall many issues with the elites besides... they are aliens.
But in Halo 3. The hate grew so high i didn't really understand it. It was just people mad that you can't shoot someone in the back of the head so easily. That was it, i never knew it was so bad. Apparently it lead to little to no action for Elites in Halo Reach's Mp. When elites should only not of been in Arena. But they were only in Invasion even thought in the Halo Reach Beta trailer Mp was full on Elites vs Spartans but it was removed and elites were shunned to the side. Now in Halo 4 they are gone which is why this thread exists now.
So i want someone to explain to me why elites are so wrong. Clearly many people say that elites should be in Halo. They are apart of the 3 things that made Halo a great.
Hurting either one of these things and you might not even want to call the game Halo anymore. By lore or by gameplay.
So please, if they elites are so horrible for gameplay i want to know why. If they are a blight on the game then maybe they should stay out. I disagree with that but what about you.
