I agree that other cultures can and should be represented more often, but they aren’t mutually exclusive. They can do both.It's only your opinion anyways. I don't think Hayabusa fits into the art style
with that said while these armor sets look good they don’t fit halo’s aesthetic and shouldn’t have been made in the first place.
the hyabusa is an exception as it’s very understated compared to these sets. And by that I mean they primary looks like halo armor with ninja ornamentation rather than the other way around.
Hayabusa was also just one helmet, chest piece, and shoulder set, so there wasn’t an overwhelming amount of it compared to the original armor. Season 8 on the other hand, has doubled the amount of original customizable options with just this one specific style of content.
My main problem with them is not that they added them in the first place. There’s been plenty of customizable options that I didn’t care to use before and I expect many more to come in the future, but the fact that they made the entire season about these armors and added more of them than the original game has is a bit annoying.
Add a few sets sure, but 60 pieces total of that one style? It’s excessive imo. Especially when H2C and H2A haven’t been given any new content at all. H2A especially should get way more love. It plays great and gives a modernized feel to the classic Halo experience. It was also launched with MCC for Halo 2’a anniversary, yet it has the least amount of content of them all. Again, I just think it’s BS that they devoted so much to that specifically, when they haven’t added anything at all, or very little, to some of the other games.
