How to improve Reach BTB heavies 1000%:What is so bad about Elite Slayer? I'm glad Elites aren't just sidelined to Invasion.
- Remove Buddy Slayer and Elite Slayer. Nobody in the world who wants to search Reach heavies wants to play Buddy Slayer or Elite Slayer. These two game types are absolutely awful and need to be deleted entirely.
- Add Graveyard and Cragmire. These were hugely popular on the 360 Reach, especially Graveyard, and need to be added to the heavies rotation ASAP.
- Add friendly fire to heavies. This way, when my troll teammates damage/destroy my vehicle, I can get some retribution before I get booted. Also, gameplay is really cheap with no friendly fire. Example: you could be right next to an enemy and their tank guy can blast you and the enemy you're right next to takes no damage. Just really cheap gameplay. 360 Heavies has friendly fire and is perfect that way!
-Lower weighting for Ridgeline and Headlong heavies variants. High weighting for Rasu, Graveyard, and Asphalt...the best heavies maps by far.
I agree with you on the friendly fire in heavies.
Elite Slayer is a double whammy of weak weapons and the evade armor ability, which is an easy escape mechanic. On top of that, there are ghosts everywhere. It's the most tortuous experience I've ever had in a video game. I am only interested in playing Reach BTB heavies, so I'm searching BTB action sack only. 343 is insistent on pairing me with teammates who have guest-like skill versus the biggest tryhards every single game and in heavies, I can do well no matter how bad my teammates are. I am dashboarding every single elite slayer and buddy slayer(almost as bad as elite slayer) game.
I played many thousands of games of Reach BTB on the 360 and elite slayer was voted for once in a blue moon, like less than 1% of the time. I'm almost sure that 343 has voting data from the 360 Reach, in order to assess what was popular and what was not. It boggles my mind why 343 wants to force horrible game types on people who have zero interest in playing them. Oh well, I guess 343 won't update it and I will just have to keep dashing on every elite/buddy slayer match and keep re-loading the puke green/ear grinding intro screen.
