Somebody had broken down the kill times for the weapons from the coverage you did at E3.The Carbine, DMR and BR, he BR`s kill time was significantly slower than both weapons by over .4 seconds which can make a big difference in game.
My question is, why is the BR`s kill time much slower than the other 2 weapons(DMR and Carbine?
I think all 3 of those weapons are slower than Halo 3's BR if the information i had gotten is correct and it might be better to have faster kill times instead of the game getting slower and slower. I think it would be best if the BR is a 4sk, it would balance the kill times between each weapon and the so the BR would be the more useful weapon at a closer range because as the weapon stands both the DMR and Carbine shoot faster and are more accurate so in theory both weapons are better at all ranges.
I noticed during the Smart Glass video there was something that said Frankie has reached rank A-7 or something along the lines of that. Is that the new ranking system you guys have been working on?
I think a ranking system could make or break Halo 4, the game already looks amazing and i'm very excited to play it, but from what i've heard from many people is that the things they loved about Halo 2 and Halo 3 in terms of the online aspect was clan battles, leader boards and the ranked play list. The ranked play list gives players more of a reason to win and to keep winning so they can be the highest rank in the game. The problem with Arena i think was that it catered to the individual player so it kind of turned into a Free For All within the team they we're playing with.
So my question is, will there be a ranking system in Halo 4?
I think the game looks great so far and i can't wait for Nov 6th! Thanks 343i for answering peoples questions about your game and it`s awesome that you do the Q&A`s.
