the only difference I saw was the decrease in req level for spnkr and removal of arc light.
WZ Update - August 24th
No. Now everyone slowly gains energy so they "level up" to the next tier in order to use higher reqs in war zone. It's to make the game more balanced and fair so it doesn't turn into a blowout with one team stuck at say level 3 and 4 reqs and the other team with level 8 and 9 reqs. Hope that makes sense. To see it play war zone and just say back and do nothing and you will see your energy bar slowly fill and you will gain a level after some time.
Ya. It has been helpful to me. I like that part of the update at least. And I haven't seen blowout games either since they put it in which makes it more fair and balances which was the intent. 343 did something right for a change.
They also decreased the REQ energy bonus for spartan kills, and made it so you don't get any energy bonus for teammates killing bosses or capping bases - you have to personally kill the boss or cap the base to get REQ credit. There are pages of discussion on these exact changes earlier in this thread.Sir Deathsalot wrote:Don't forget the req energy drip. But I agree. Outside of your 2 things and the req energy drip, I've noticed nothing else.
