Honestly i think 343 not carrying over progress is a terrible idea. Its a copy and paste retweaked to work with newer hardware. Its not a new game so why wipe the slate for everyone? I would understand if it was a remastered version but it is not. I would not buy this version of reach until after someone reviews it post release, just in case they are selling a turd painted in gold by cutting some corners. I personally think its worth 10 to 15USD leaniing closer to 10. I would strongly advise against pre ordering.

Nothing from any other legacy game in MCC was ever transferred over. I don't know the exact ins-and-outs of why, but I have to imagine building migration tools to pull in stats from hundreds of thousands of players, saved in different formats, across multiples games, over almost 2 decades, would not be a fun task at all and would take a huge amount of time (and you can take this from a developer who's team built a migrate tool for a much smaller app, across a single version, for nowhere near as many users, and it was an absolute nightmare).
As upset as I am about this, I understand that and respect the fact that they thought that, logistically, it would be too difficult to transfer the stats and progression from Halo Reach. It is something that we'll just have to accept and endure. A new era of Halo with a clean slate. We get to progress just as we did on the Xbox and make memories on this new platform. Obviously it may be annoying that you have to spend the time to get the same gear you already had, but it really isn't about the customization. Its about the growth of the game, the community and a new method of enjoyment for the people that have been following this game for years.

Imo a mistake. If fans can put in hundreds of hours, 343 should honor it.
Now you can't see your spartan armor in the service record.

Here on waypoint? That feature was retired long ago. It won't update ever again and if you change your gamertag (like I did), it'll revert to Default.

Nothing is being taken away though. Your legacy stats have and will always be accessible in their own respective games and you can still view them here on Waypoint, so they are still honoured

It divides the community, and infuriates the people who have been playing the most.
How does it divide the community?
Not sure that it divides the community, but it makes sense that people would be frustrated that their legacy stats will not be accessible through the MCC. Personally, I'm not going to waste my time grieving over the last progression. I just want to play the game and enjoy it on the PC. That's just something that needs to be accepted. There's no sense in dwelling on this. When it is time, play the game and progress just as you had on the base game.

Among other aspects such as 343’s inability to maintain the legacy servers or even bother replying here with any degree of frequency to many posts about the subject, a lot of day-one players like myself and just long-time players in general want to keep adding on to what we already have and/or don’t trust 343 to provide a stable gaming experience on the MCC either. None of us care about trivial things like rank, armor, or even commendation progress - we just want the ability to keep adding onto our stats. You have mentioned why this would be a difficult thing to do and I can respect that, Safety is just saying that a lot of players with our mindset will be sticking to the original rather than migrating over to play on the MCC. What percentage? Who knows.

Off-topic - how are the servers in MM, any better nowadays? I only rarely play it and stick with FF where I would rather be booted into my own match. I think I played a few games of swat and infection last week and still had some players not make it into games a couple times in addition to the usual search restarts etc...
Ranks should be translated, it’s possible for them to do it. They have a big budget.
Highly unlikely but dunno maybe they’ll change their minds in the future.
im almost to general and it sucks to lose it

We couldn’t care less about rank transferring as it means nothing at all. As per my previous post all we would want is our stats carried over but none of it is going to happen. Like stckrboy said, we will have to stick to the original version to maintain them.
