As I said in the other post if you got 3 unlocks in 2 hours you're the problem not the game and that's how it is with literally every game with unlocks even the original Reach. You have to work for the unlocks just like you do in every other game and just like you did with the original Reach. Go back and play it again because you did not have all the customization right off the bat like you think you did.
I did not finish a tier. I got three unlocks from the first tier after two hours of game time. The issue isnt the season ending, it's that it's going to take hours to get the content that I want or customization options I want that would otherwise be avaliable almost at the start in the original Reach.
The XP system isn't slow if you can finish a whole tier and more in about 2 hours. It's not like the season is going to end by Friday. You'll have months to get everything just by casually playing and you'll get everything pretty fast. You obviously haven't played any other games ever if you think this is a horrible grind.
I wouldnt have minded a system that toned down the grinding, but this is awful. You get no EXP for Campaign or Custom games, EXP gain itself feels incredibly slow, and you dont unlock any shoulder customization until Tier 2. If it took me 2 hours to get to the Recon helmet, how long will it take me to get some Shoulder pads? Or a chestpiece? I'd take the old system any day over this new one.
Yea.. this is a little startling for me as well. I know people wanted customization, but to have to redo everything? That seems a little out there.Well player's need a reason to level up dude. Why is this even a thread. The majority of the fan base wanted this. Why should 343 cater to your specific needs.
There are worse grinds than this, but this is pretty bad. I'd also advise against making generalized assumptions about how many games I've played, pal.
And you obviously haven't played a whole lot if your finding this hard to grasp.
Halo Reach on the 360 gives the player 5000 Credits from the start and the ability to purchase three helmets as well as some Shoulder pieces, possibly even a chest piece. Already, I have more customization options there within 10 minutes of booting the game than I do after two hours with this season pass system.
You're also the person who's telling me that had difficulty understanding that I did not unlock three tiers within two hours, but three unlocks. Perhaps my grasp of the system isnt the one that should be called into question?
EDIT: Actually checked, the original Halo Reach gives you the CQC Base for free, Hazop for 7,000 CR at Recruit, ODST for about 2,000 CR at Recruit, and FJ/PARA Shoulders for 250 CR each at Recruit.
