how about CTF when you get a ghost and your teammate throws a plasma grenade on it? What do you call that? Cause the game calls it a betrayal.

I mentioned this before, but I've been saving the Theater videos of people being assholes and putting them on my fileshare. I intend to e-mail 343i about them, telling them to ban presented, evidence supported assholes from the game. If they want to be morons, they can be forced to do it in custom matches. Playing like that is not welcome in online matches, though.

If no action is taken to remove these players, I'll gladly stop playing all Halo games, as they're not supporting my expectations as a consumer who isn't an online fucker. If they cannot play the game well with others, don't let them play online at all.

Maybe if they'll take action, people might stop playing like this. Fear of consequence is a pretty big motivator to stop people from playing like dicks.

Or...

You could try starting a CAG clan to prevent from being teamed with dicks (hopefully). There just doesn't seem to be enough interest though.

Besides being run over there are no betrayals don't play BTB =]


I don't know what happened, though I suspect grenade, but I got betrayed while playing Team Regicide yesterday. (If the video is still there, 360 has long since been turned off, I'll look around to be sure of what happened.)

Oh speaking of Team Regicide... Looks like its popularity was short lived as it was way down on the pole yesterday. (Currently 4th as I type this.)

Oh I've never played CTF 4th in the rankings is still a large margin between most of the game types though.
Its infinity slayer and btb which is constantly in the 15k-20k range then SWAT and then Regicide and then everything else is >2k (I think I did that right). Hopefully they bring back invasion and drop dominion

I keep meaning to try dominion but never do... Hear its interesting from a friend but he pretty much only play BTB, which is fine with me, so we pretty much just stick to it.

Oh, I specialized for the first time. Talk about disappointment. You get nothing really tangible till you finish it off. There special ability is the last thing to unlock. Really seems like it should have been the first.

Not that it ending up matter but I chose pathfinder consider I usually only play two modes... SWAT and BTB. (And I always find myself with a turret in my hands at some point* in the battle.)

* I would say many points in the battle but I don't want to be viewed as the idiot slogging around at half speed carrying a turret. :lol:

Dominion is just BTB with less people I don't understand why they have 4v4,6v6 and 8v8. Same here all I play is SWAT and BTB

You have a certain number of matches per code, depending on what the code came from. A bag of Doritos is 12 matches worth, a 20 oz Dew is 3 matches. And you can enter as many at a time as you want.


Also, Dew 24 packs are 12 matches and 12 packs are 6.

I was using those for a while but I almost kind of regret it now. I've been playing quite a bit so I'd be at a fairly high level anyway, but I'm at 66 already and I could sort of see the day come where I max out and have little incentive to play anymore. Oh well, it's still a ways off.

Isn't that what the Commendations are for? While I don't think people will max all of them, you'll definitely have lots to complete well after you hit max rank. Especially if you at least try to max one playlist and one of the weapon sets. Plus, these Commendations are more attainable than the ones in Reach, though there are some that really seem impossible.

(still have 95 matches of double xp to play through, will be playing some spartan ops, thanks for the tips!)

Dominion is pretty fun. It's like a gametype that promotes camping my understanding on how to win in this gametype is just hold on to more than 1 base and you win. It's a good gametype if you need any ordnance kills with UNSC/forerunner weapons. I needed SAW kills and they drop everywhere on meltdown

So i just did the solo legendary in spartan ops. Wow. so you get unlimited respawns? That makes things way too easy...I mean yeah, I died like 23 times, but I was able to pull it off.....Is there any real reason to not do all these missions solo on legendary? Besides it being tedious and boring? Just wondering.


Sorry, for missing this originally. There is an armor set that can be only be completely unlocked by doing the first three episodes on legendary.

If someone wants to team up to knock them out let me know. :)

I'm doing them solo on Legendary and finding it to be a good way to fill up the Commendations. I already completed the one for a specific type of Elites doing this.

The parts where you face 3 Knights at once in tight areas really suck, though.

I find it really tedious to do alone... even without three knights. :lol:

I did Ep 01 Ch 01 by myself and it took far too long to be worth the reward given...

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Have to wait. It's pretty fucked (but nothing new) that a game company is treating the more dedicated fans (ie the ones with the limited edition and/or map pass) as second-class yet again.

There should be something up within the next few hours that prompts you to download them from in game rather than the marketplace. For now, only people buying the separate map packs can access it.

By the time most people see this it may already be up. It's almost 8 am EST as I write this.

I'm pretty sure that you could earn a map pack achievement on any map in Reach... I say this because I have at least one achievement from each map pack but I rarely, rarely, ever saw the chance to play on the DLC maps. (I bought them all on sale and/or with Halo Anniversary.)

Defiant was the only map pack that had map specific achievements. (except for those three achievements you could earn in customs)


People really want to play these maps I saw a couple of people at the waypoint forums saying they were tired of waiting and even though they had the season pass paid the 800 points to play them now.

Paying 800 for the maps although you have LE/season pass is pretty crazy..

Huh... I guess I'm lucky to have gotten the achievements that I did. I hope that this isn't the case this time, I hate map achievements.

I just booted up. No change on the season pass... As for those paying for the map pack again. I'm guessing they're not members of this forum. :lol:

Welp got four of the achievements in like 30 seconds. Spawned in a game that already started near an enemy mantis ran to it boarded it killed it with a grenade two achievements. Ran to a teleporter melee killed a guy got the achievement for killing someone with melee off of a mancannon and killing someone in the air while exiting a man cannon. I didn't even know teleporters counted as man cannons
