Hey man I understand you're angry but 343 is doing s good thing here. New players can have a fair start. Everyone gets to play Reach again like it brand new. PC players finally get to play Halo again. 343 is doing a good job and I think you would agree to if you look at what they're doing and weren't angry at the momentYes, in a game such as Halo: Reach, where ranking doesn't change game play, meaning that it is already a level playing field, resetting it is pointless. They are making a mistake in their choice to do this. Also, about playing it brand new, we will already be playing it "brand new" no matter what, but they should allow those of us who have put in the grind to rank up to keep our progress. I was not angry at the beginning of the week, however, since more and more bad news such as this and the fact that they do not plan on releasing Halo 5 nor Infinite in any foreseeable future onto PC, can you see why some of us would be upset?
I am a huge fan of Halo: Reach. I reached inheritor last year. I know what the grind feels like. I'm sorry for those of you that haven't reached inheritor yet and will have to start over. But I think we should just be grateful that 343 is going to have Reach on the MCC and PC with 60fps/4K/HDR. I never thought that day would come, and I bet some of you didn't either.
Reach is slowly losing players every year. The servers are not doing well, the file browser hasn't' worked in ages, and the population has dropped to only a few thousand. Reach is on it's last legs unfortunately.
But what this news means is that Reach will continue to live on for years to come. It will be more beautiful and better than ever. No more black screens. No more grifball peace games. Quitters will be punished like they should. No more motion blur or jittery frames. There will be some growing pains don't get me wrong, but the final product will be glorious.
I think that resetting the ranks is the right thing to do for new players of Halo: Reach on Xbox and PC. It would be a nice nod to veteran players to include their Xbox 360 Rank on their service record. That I would like to see.
I know it might be disappointing for some, but just imagine how many new people we will be able to play Halo: Reach with! : )
343 is rectifying their previous neglect with Halo: Reach. They are finally giving it the treatment it deserves. I think we can all appreciate that. : )
