I wouldn't trust the Reach population counter with my life. It's been buggy and 'frozen' for some time now, heck, there was 27,000 people playing last time I played, a couple of weeks ago, at 3 AM EST. This is actually common knowledge by this point.Quote:funny you should say that because I checked earlier and -Quote:So where did they go? None of the other Halo games, which said majority claim are still better than Halo 4, have seen a massive population spike on par with the number of people that left.Quote:The majority left already... Please support your arguments (first off, form one)Quote:The 1% that sits on the forums all day is NOT the majority.Quote:I would agree, except that I am SOO glad for the future of Halo because the garbage population for this game has shown them that all the Yoink! they added to Halo has been completely reviled. It gives me hope, assuming they actually listen to the community, that they do a 110% backtrack and actually gives Halo 5 a chance of being the Halo game that we want and need.Quote:Generally speaking, if it's good for MLG it's good for the overall gaming community as a whole. If a game is balanced enough for MLG to consider it competitive, it's going to play fairly and enjoyably for casuals too.Quote:And here I was hoping MLG left the Halo franchise forever. I hate MLG with a passion. They destroy every game they ever touched and vomit filth propaganda as if their way of thinking is the way games should be played.
MLG is one of the biggest problems in the gaming industry.I mean, if Halo and CoD:BO were reversed on the population charts, it'd undoubtedly be a better thing for the Halo universe as a whole.Quote:What is with this forum and the obsession with population?Quote:MLG made Halo, the old Halo really competitive and I hope MLG makes the population grow
It doesn't matter how great a Halo game is from now on. Gamers today are more diverse and there are tons of triple A titles now a days. The days of Halo being the only game people played are over and the kids who dream about the past really need to wake up.
You honestly think they are all moved to Call of Duty? The shooter that they played Halo to avoid? Of course, since MLG picked up CoD, they might have.
After all, MLG merely hosting the game 'makes it competitive, and populations grow', right?
Halo 4 population: 31000
Halo Reach population: 27,000
I was playing Reach with my friends and loving it.
Also it is wrong to assume that just because 370000 people stopped playing 4 means that they are going to just flock to older Halo games. I think it speaks worlds that a 3.5 year old Halo game is close to the population of a 8month old Halo game, and thats not including H3.
Halo 4, on the other hand, has 32,271. An increase from what you saw.
And yes, I would expect those who stopped playing Halo 4 'because it's not Halo' to go back to playing the older Halo games. Ya know, the one's they make such a big deal about enjoying because the ARE Halo to them. How many of the people that left were 'fans and players since CE', or 'bought an Xbox just for Halo'.
But nope. It seems most of the people who ragged on Halo 4 for being 'too CoD like' .... went to go play CoD. Or other games, of course.
