Wait, the MCC ruined Halo for you?
I know they don’t release the data but I’d very interesting in seeing Halo 5’s population graph. I just want to know the current daily average. I feel like I’m playing the same 25-50 players everyday...Halo 5 was hurt when MCC became the main featured / updated / tournament game (which REALLY ruined Halo for me, personally). I loved every game in MCC, years and years ago (:
The focus on Halo MCC ruined my desire to play Halo in 2019/2020, yes. I love every Halo game. I've played them all a ton. Got all of the achievements for each game, played MM, campaigns, all the things... Halo CE is my favorite Halo game of all time, followed by Halo 3. You're talking to a true classic Halo fan here.
However, Halo 5, to me, is a lot more fun to watch in tournament play (and the numbers on Twitch back me up by about 3x per tournament) in 2019-2020, and it's a better MM experience from a playing perspective as well (I'm not a competitive player by any stretch, but I have lost interest in the scene as a whole).
Don't get me wrong, I played some MCC tonight. It's my favorite game of all time (as it contains all of my favorite games of all time, barring Halo 5)... But if you are asking me about the time of NOW, yes, it ruined Halo momentum for me. Other more relevant games have taken over.
Keep in mind, by 'ruined' I strictly mean focusing on MCC as the 'main' current Halo game (instead of Halo 5 transitioning into Infinite). I should have been more clear, as this could easily be taken out of context.
