Cool your jets lil zoom... Yeah someone called me like that idk why... Anyways... Cross platform is still a possibility, meaning if they change the aim assist for PC controller users, it will simply make things harder for 343i to bring cross platform capability for everyone due to balance issues. A lot of people, including me, wants to play with Xbox players. So it's not irrelevant at all. I am bringing this to the discussion because I thought changing Aiming assist could worsen the chances of implementing it to the game, and tweaking aim assist could easily create a new problem for 343i in the future.Hirotoro4692 wrote:Wtf?

It needs to remain the same as it was 9 years ago simply because it will change the game AND cross platform matches could have some balance issues. If people are really bothered, I am not, by the controller aim assist, then the only way to fix this is to force people to use keyboard and mouse. Simple.
I am certain that if 343i manages to perfect the raw mouse input, making it perfectly responsive and on par with other modern fps games, KBM users can easily beat the controller users.
Besides which, your point is totally irrelevant, since people can and are playing the PC version with a controller right now. Today, and are gaining a distinct adavantage in doing so because controller assists are overtuned.
That's the whole discussion of this thread; have you not even been reading it?!
They can get KB+M input sweet as pie, and it won't change the fact controller users currently have a pretty significant aim hack. When you can miss a sniper shot by 2 freaking head's width and it still somehow hits because of ridiculous assistance, that's broken. It's as simple as that.
I don't get why people overreact. It's like "herp derp, aim asisst is too strong, it needs to go entirely" or "herp derp, leave it as it is". People these days seem to only think extreme options exist...
What the heck happened to the middle ground? You know, maybe them tuning it partially until it feels just right? Shades of grey and all that?
I have been playing Halo since I was literally 7 years old... what I am a trying to say is I played Halo Reach since launch and spent many many many hours playing it. I now play almost like.. Shroud on PC except I'm a little worse because I don't play as often as him. My point is KBM users should be able to beat the controllers users with ease because of insane aiming precision... if not, because of the ridiculous aim assist then... wait.. I actually did bring you a middle ground solution: don't let anyone use a controller on PC. "Have you not even been reading" my previous reply?
I do have another solution and ok.. 343i could simply tweak aim assist on both platform so it becomes a lot more fairer. But I am just on the fence because Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4 will need to suffer the same changes, meaning everything will need to be remodeled, if cross platform play stays a thing. IF cross play is cancelled, then nevermind, do whatever you want with the tweak, I don't care. Cross play might only be available in Custom games... and I think that's fair enough.
