Well considering there doesn't seem to be evidence of either claim players just have to keep playing you find out. I am on tour 4 with almost 11,000,000 xp. Does it really matter how far to max xp? I play Halo because I enjoy playing it. I don't need some arbitrary numbers to try and reach for anything. I would rather games have long term stuff for us who do play a long time. Sorry if not every thing in game is so easy every one can do it.
Please support your claim with evidence. Those numbers were taken directly from the current build.
If 1,200,000,000 was true: shame on you 343! Even if all my games from the last 10 years were taken into account I‘d probably only be around 50% of the max rank. And I guess I have about 500k multiplayer kills in all halos so I have played a lot lol.That number isn't true at all.
But I am sure someone will do it. maybe it‘ll take 10 more years 10 but someone will haha
The numbers I linked are taken directly from the game. You can verify these by comparing the your current rank/XP shown in your in-game profile.
Regardless, I do agree with you. I play the game for fun and don't care about some arbitrary ranking system. In fact I never wanted them to add it anyway because it wasn't necessary and was time/resources that could have been spent on other improvements. It also shows how poorly it was implemented and has been almost universally disliked. They would have been better off not doing it all.
But for those that wanted the progression system, now they have one that reaching max rank is basically impossible unless you dedicate your life to it. Congratulations?
