But I currently have no tru7h to convey.
Perhaps if Bungie would announce their next game instead of diddling around with mobile apps, that would change.
It is time to rise up, brothers. Word is being spread that the Sangheili will not be available in Reach multiplayer.
When the gods dictate that someone needs some destruction visited on them, we are the sword, not those mono-jaw primates.
Now is the time for action. Declare war against the Spartans and do not rest until their creators allow us to fight in Reach!
Splitting up my party is bad.
Stop doing it.
I play Halo to play with friends, and when we go in with 8 and have to worry about one or two of us getting split off to the opposite team, it spoils the play. I'm sure there's some solid reasoning about how splitting parties keeps matchmaking wait times to a minimum, but those of us who play the game don't care.
When a party gets split up, one of two things happen:
a) People ninja drop to force matchmaking to abort the game.
b) The people who got split off spend the entire game sabotaging whatever poor schmucks they got teamed with.
Neither case is fun, and we play the game to have fun. If we want to, let us spin our tires waiting an eternity for a game instead of forcing us to team up with people we don't know, and probably do not like. If I want to shoot my friends, well, that's what custom games are for.
16% of games in Social BTB are VIP.
I can't recall a game since January where people actually wanted to play VIP. It could be even longer, I think shortly after Halo 3 released people were excited to see the new game type but by late October we'd all figured out it was basically 15 minutes of one guy camping in the base. But my memory tends to reset pointless statistic retention at the start of each new year, so we'll begin with 1/1/2008.
From my perspective, it is the most disliked variant. The only time it gets played is when it comes up after a veto (a veto usually triggered by either Covies or Territories). Pretty sure it's just about the only variant I've ever seen a full 16 man veto for.
All those statistics up on bungie.net, and Bungie's failed to notice no one likes VIP?
