That's great news! Thanks for your reply man! I hope they do take the feedback. Like I respect the fact that they were trying to improve but tbh the old system worked great. Also I would not mind at ALL if they just relocked all of the Halo 3 and Halo 2 armor and made us actually have to work for it. Since the game launched with everything unlocked its not like they're taking anything that we actually earned.
I think theres actually a good chance there will be changes made. I recall in one of the previous updates, 343 said they're aware the season system has flaws, and they were going to follow feedback, and continue to evolve it on that. I suspect the seasons will "change" with game releases. If you notice, the current season is "Noble" and it contains most (all?) Of Reach's cosmetics. So I expect the system to evolve as future seasons release. That said, season points will be transferrable. You can earn them, and buy cosmetics with them in any game, once they're out. That's just how I see it though, so take it as you will :)
The coins make it so you don’t lose access to everything in season 1 once season 2 rolls around and they let you choose which season to unlock things in. So yes they do change stuff from the traditional battlepass formula. But yeah this unlock system does suck. Ut oh well. I doubt they’ll change it at this point.
When Season #2 comes out, you still have to unlock everything in Season #1 if you want that one armor piece that is granted in the last unlocks of season 1. If you thought about it for 2 minutes you'd realize that it changes nothing.
It's because there will be new seasons. Unlike other games with battlepass systems the old seasons won't go away when the new one comes in. You'll get to choose which season you want to spend your points in.Exactly right lol. If people thought about it for like 2 minutes they'd realize that is why
The current unlock system blows, coming and going of new seasons makes it no better.
As Auzzy26 said, it would be better if certain items cost a certain amount. For example all shoulder pads are 10 Tokens, all helmets are 20 tokens, or something like that. Then there would actually be a point in having tokens in the first place, and you would have something to look forward to when saving your tokens for the thing you want most.
I'm indifferent on the progression to be frank. I totally agree with everyone, that the linear unlocks are silly, because at least to some extent, it makes Spartans less unique, because everyone at the same level, has the same gear. What I do like, is the prestiging (tours) and gaps between levels. It can feel grindy, but only towards the end of a tour, and nowhere near the level of original Reach (looking at you 3.5 million credit level gaps). I think if they had a different system for unlocking gear, it would feel better. I also know challenges have been confirmed as coming, like dailies/weeklies (at least I presume that would be the format). These have been confirmed to award season points upon completion, which also means we may finally be able to win season points in campaign. Best bet right now is to be constructive, and provide good feedback on the season system, so that they can hear us!
