What is your standing on this controversial topic?

Make Your Selection:

Let the pointless arguments begin!
Sprint is not ever going anywhere. It is going to be in the series forever. It was in Reach, H4, H5 and will be in H6. Period.
This debate was already over years ago on this site. Here's the video, though the actual Waypoint page is no longer up I don't think:

But since then people have just flat out left the series, so if there's less people against now sprint it's because those people got fed up and left.

Hell, I'll even add this page that shows the results of a few sprint poll results from the bigger Halo forums:

That's a terrible argument. Many other aspects of Halo have been removed even though they were in past Halos..

I hated sprint and was very against it, but Halo 5 did a really nice job and making all the Spartan abilities jive and make sense. Sprint is second nature to me now and I can't imagine a future Halo without it. I want it to stay.

cant watch the video atm, is it about that huge poll with like >70% voting for removing sprint?
You're not ending any debate if it keeps getting brought up. Threads like yours with the same title in it have done to death .....and I'm talking more than 6' deep.
I wish the Mods would start locking every sprint thread for spam and leave just one open for discussion like they did with split screen and playable elites. I'm sick of seeing the threads and reading the same thing over and over again. This has been going on for literally years now.
Let's compare online population stability and longevity of halo games with and without sprint shall we?

Yes, it's this one.
The game mechanics work well with sprint now more than it did with Halo: Reach. Even though you can escape, the game is focus on face to face so your shield will not regenerate if you flee from fight which is good. There is enough corner and small hiding spot for you to hide, wait for your shield to recharge then jump back into fight.

THANK YOU! Very few are really willing to give sprint much of a chance, but you seem to have at least made an attempt at it. And now you like having it in the game. I was skeptical at first as well, and it does take time to get used to your new abilities, but you do get used to it after a few days.

And so the cycle begins again. Next we will get the "I want immersion" crap again.

Face it guys. We did the polls, the Halo community DID NOT WANT SPRINT. So 343i added in sprint, now you have the smallest population of any Halo game to date just two months after release.

343i and the "vocal minority" won. Sprint, a toxic community and <20,000 population are here to stay.
Hahahahahahaha!

Oh, you're serious?
SUCK IT UP PRINCESSES, Sprint is great. YOU need to learn it.
