Thursday game night

I just played three warzones.

"Raped" isn't a word I like to use but that's because I don't want to tell you guys how I did.

I maxed at 14 kills.

I need to sit down and come up with a whole slew of gametypes that all make use of the crazy thrusters and increased knockbacks.  Might need to run some tests and playtests to determine the best settings for the thrusters so I have a standard across all of the gametypes, then do some playtesting for each mode.  I was initially calling it Smasher because I thought the knockbacks would be the key feature, but that's definitely not the case.

The increase thrusters and sprint speed made it so much more enjoyable! Flying across the map from a boosted jump:) I still sucked but enjoyed it....

I want to play around with maybe decreasing the thruster speed and increasing its duration.  Find some kind of sweet spot that doesn't feel as completely uncontrollable.  I really like the kind of granular control they've given to those player traits.  And I want to come up with something special for flag carriers in a CTF mode.

Those games with the thrusters were fun, but would have like to have done some more straight up team or big team slayer last night.

Each game type has it own strategy....but across all game types the real key is to never lone wolf it. You really need to stick with team mates, makes it much easier to win gun battles when you have two or three guys sticking together. Every time I win a match its because we swarm the other team. Most times when I lose its because we're getting swarmed. With games like CTF and territories, kill to death ratio doesn't really matter as much as achieving the goals and protecting the flag carrier or the territories you've taken.

Lots of fun last night. Those booster changes really make the game fun beyond just being slayer.

Sure, if you play late in the evenings.

You familiar with past Halo games?  What it takes to break shields and what guns to use for head shots and stuff like that? Keep in mind, this game has aim assist turned down reeeaallly low to increase skill gap.  Unfortunately, I'm finding I relied heavily on aim assist in the past and my muscle memory isn't catching up too well in this game.  It'll get there... I hope.

I've been there myself before man.  Sometimes you just can't find that mojo and it's frustrating as hell.

Was a fun night last night. Would post clips but I can't copy and paste in this forum due to internet explorer incompatibilities....really kills this site for me. Any chance they're going to fix the bug?

Played a game of Warzone Assault last night that lasted a whopping 3:27.  Never made it past req level 1.  Brutal.  On the plus side, I finally unlocked the DMR last night. I think its like req level 6 or 7 though so I'm not sure how often I'd use it compared to some of the other reqs at that level.

I have only been able to use the DMR a few times in assault. If you play full on war zone you should get much more use out of it.

 

So they rolled over all 3 bases in under 4 mins? That is crazy. I have been on the winning side of a match like that and it happened so fast i had no idea what was going on. I just assume that the other team was asleep at the wheel or something.

Yeah, and that's only the second fastest that we've seen.  Another previous game was 3:15.

Rolled over all three bases and destroyed the core. I would say it was borderline embarrassing but there was nothing borderline about it.
