I have a video on my fileshare (I think) of some teammate getting angry when I steal 'his' Warthog. He wanted to drive his equally sucky friend around in it, and they kept meleeing my Warthog to get me out, and then proceeded to throw grenades at it. I went to Splatter the lead jackass, who jumped, but still got hit by the vehicle, causing him to be thrown over my 'hog while losing his shield. He then fell directly on his own grenade, committing suicide. The crushing defeat the team experienced was almost worth it to see this idiot suck at team vehicle sabotage.

I'll never get why lousy 'party' teammates don't just play with each other in Custom Games.

That's pretty much my preference for the large maps too but there are a handful of smaller maps, with tighter corridors, were the BR is the better choice, if not outright, overpowered. (Haven comes to mind.)

Anyhow, in my opinion, SWAT is (or at least was) about skill (or at least quick precise reflexes) over one's choice in weapon and with loadouts that's been changed in general and with the BR the need for perfect precision has been reduced considerably.

Its not the end of the world, its not even the thing that annoys* me most in MP, but it is something I would like to see addressed in the long term.

* The biggest annoyance is Ragnarok constant selection in big team battle... I suspect we'll see a tweek where the last selected map won't pop up for selection soon. (Ragnarok isn't even that bad of a map, its actually pretty cool, but I am tired of it.)

The BR is the original SWAT weapon, I don't really see the change.

How I despise Microsoft...
Finally got my Halo 4 copy, turned on my dusty 360, and discovered that they perma-banned me.
I'm still struggling to understand why, considering the fact that my console is not modded nor did I ever break the ToS.
While I wait for XBL-support to ignore my email, I guess I'll just play some SinglePlayer. (Yay! 60$ for a Halo 4 campaign)

Good job Microsoft, you just lost a NextBox buyer.

Btw I'm surprised at the numbers team regicide is the top 3rd played playlist when I was on earlier it must be a fun game type haven't tried it yet


It didn't seem to stay up there for long... Right now SWAT is four, Oddball is three (Oddball has a daily challenge), and Team Regicide is five.

Anyhow, I did send sometime with it... With a Good team its allot of fun, but if you get stuck with an idiot or someone just horribly aggressive as your team's king, there seems to be no amount of slaying you can do to when the game. (Which is how it should be... but its likely a mode far better with friends with mics.)

Any sort of organization would likely win this real easily...

They don't ban for no reason man, cry some where else.

You'd be surprised.
Use the magical tool that is Google, and you will discover that false-bans are not uncommon.
Considering the fact that I barely even used Xbox live, and that the only tinkering I did was cracking open the Component cable case, I'd say Microsoft went trigger happy.

I Did some research: I Probably got banned for setting up a US account, 4 years ago, even though I'm from Argentina.
Until 2 weeks ago, Xbox live did not even support Argentina, so it was the only option.
Giving me a heads up that I can now fill in my real country before Perma-Banning me would be the right course of action, But turns out Microsoft are to cool for that.

Is the Halo 4 SP enough to get me going, or should I return the game?
If the Legendary is challenging, I'd just stick to it.

The SP is alright nothing worth paying $60 for I think you can play spartan ops but the most fun is obviously MP it sucks you got perma banned post your story in xbox forums they'll instantly review why you were banned http://forums.xbox.c...pport/f/41.aspx

I'm gonna assume you maybe changed your avatar look illegally and assumed it was ok? That's like majority of the reason why people are banned. I used to love reading their ban stories

As I said in the comment above ^^^
I Probably got banned for "faking" my accounts country, but I didn't really have a choice. ( Xbox live didn't support Argentina until a couple of weeks ago)

What do you mean by "changing your avatar illegally"?
You mean that "Mii" bullcrap? :X
I never even customized my Avatar... I just picked a default model.
Why would people even hack this stuff to begin with.

To be honest, even if they will lift the ban, I don't think I'll bother subscribing to XBL-Gold anymore.
Though I can't play Spartan-Ops without a gold account, I am really enjoying the Single Player.

Yeah, those are lame. Completely random situations that might never come up unless you're specifically boosting for them, and thereby ruining the flow of the game for everyone else. :P

I could kind of see getting the melee from a man canon one from a game of Capture the Flag on Ragnarok, especially if you're chasing or being chased by the enemy team coming from a the flag zone.

If they implement Gauss Hogs you could get the airborne warthog achievement. Even on Exile there is the man canon that a driver could drive to and the gunner would just have to score a lucky shot to get it. But you're right that it will definitely mess up the game, since people will probably be wasting the Warthog in the quest for this achievement.

Though I'm just assuming these achievements work across all maps, and aren't Crimson Maps specific. I hated it when they did that with the later map packs in Reach.

Just getting into doing the Spartan Ops, so dumb you can only do matchmaking on the latest episode... After you have played the chapters, do you get more XP if you replay it, or only for the first time through?

Seriously. I really hope you can do them in custom games like the first set of Reach DLC achievements, because some of these are fucking ridiculous.

You usually get around 2000-3000XP plus progress towards commendations doing a custom game of Spartan Ops regardless of difficulty or time. You can't use 2XP either.

Actually, while you don't get double xp if you do a solo or custom game of spartan ops, if you play spartan ops matchmaking, you will get the double xp.

You could put up a request on this site for players for older chapters, though. I'm sure as time passes new players from this site will want to play previous chapters and will want teammates.

Has anybody been able to destroy Mongooses in this game? I have one destroyed, but every time since then the people either get off of it, or I get the kill but am unable to destroy the vehicle. I wish they had a time limit like 3 seconds to blow up a vehicle after an enemy was in it to count as a vehicle destroyed.

That, plasma pistol kills and King Assassinations will probably never be 100%'d by me.

I'd be up for this. I still haven't played any of the Spartan Ops missions so if anyone is interested in playing all of the older chapters feel free to add me and send a message.
