anyone here encountered cheaters lately? i'd have to say Bungie's patch actually worked...for me atleast.


Nope. I think it's worked fairly well.

I haven't encountered any leet stand-by'arz lately, either. That was pretty popular for a few minutes there after the update.

As for modding, haven't seen that in a good two or three weeks.

Yeah. Have been hacked a few times since the update. Hopefully they're being caught soon after. Also been stand-byed at least 3 times.

The best way to memorize the map is to play the game by yourself and just explore the place and where all the weopans are located/sniping points.

yeah every since january 3rd (disc got scratched from playing too much???) my rank of 43 bit the dust and i figured that (after playing the new maps with friends) it was worth it. I mean I played it from launch for about 5+ hours a day, I knew everything, and eventually I got bored. And I sorta wish they never invented headsets because there was more shit about people than shit about the game being talked on them. Yeah I also was a sword type of guy )I mastered it really well and had people report me for being too good :-D) and also people thought it would be gay that i would get a killtacular and we would now have the top of ivory tower and we dominate. I use to be in a clan with friends and they wouldn't take it serious (i would have maps with strategies and send them to them and they'd be like "what the hell is this, why dont we just SHOOT THEM HAHAHA").

So in short:
Halo was so addicting that I actually got bored of it because I played too much.
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

Personally I loved Halo 1 and 2 when it first came out, but then it started to slowly decline in the playability over time and I'm not ashamed to say it.

I'm actually thinking of renting this just to give online a play again. I never really got sucked into it like most of you guys did. I got hooked on Ghost Recon 2 and traded away my Halo 2. I imagine if I walked back online i'd get freakin slaughtered though after playing nothing but GR and BF demo (as far as online shooters) for the past 9 months........ I hear there are so many idiots online you might as well mute your mic from what people have told me in other games.

I mean it supplied short thrills for about 3 months and then things started to head downhill from there. It was worthy title online and offline, but...

The ranking system takes the fun out of the game. A lot of people are to obsessed with their rank to actually enjoy the game.

The only time it really bothers me is in team games where people "de-rank". I don't know who came up with that shit, but Bungie needs to automatically boot anyone once their score is -3.

It takes away from the team score. Say I had 12 kills, but my partner suicided 13 times. Our score would be -1. So you really have no chance of winning with players like that.

You are slightly retarded, right?

to awaken this giant...

tonight i was playing some slayer and me and my guest were booted twice. both of the times neither of us were around anyone, and the screen just popped up saying we had been booted. the last time it was a ranked game and we were up by about 20 kills on the other team, and that screen pops up. this may have been an issue dealt with before, but what's with me getting randomly booted?

i agree people think when they get to certain level,they think that bungie is going to send that super hot chick to reward them for playing halo.

You were probably being "bridged." It's the new stand-by (the concept of cheating having a fashion-like sense of been-there-done-that makes me want to put a gun to my head), and basically whomever is "bridging" can select who they'd like removed from the game. It has to do with tracking the IP you're associated with, and banning it from that instanced game.

Don't ask me any of the technical details, because I don't know any. It really sucks, but that's been the case with matchmaking ever since stand-by was originally exploited. You just gotta trudge through it and pray you don't catch it again (which, unfortunately, is almost impossible in level 30+ play).

thanks led.

yeah cheating sucks, but i don't get it that much. however, i mainly only play training or the other 2 unranked games or customs. i only play ranked when the g/f is over (she likes ranked games).

and i trudge on. for some reason it still seems worth it 51 weeks later.

I just started to play again ( took a 5 month break). I got all the free maps and started to rekindle my love for Halo 2. Although i am clearly not as good as i use to be, its still has my interest with new matching making game types.. Does Anyone else still play? If so, Please leave your gamertag in this thread if you want to start playing again.
