WOW - Halo MP is....really good!

20 posts in this topic

I haven't played Halo mp since Halo 2, but my son got Halo 5 for his birthday last weekend and I thought the Warzone MP mode sounded really intriguing. I gave it a go the other night.

I have to say - I really like it! First of all, any game that adds "card packs" as part of the mechanic has got me by the balls right from the start. But I had lots of fun -- I really like how you not only have to focus on the other team, but also the AI enemies as well. It was great!

Yeah, and if you get sick of Warzone you still have the classic Halo Multiplayer in Arena....which is where you'll find a good majority of the guys who play with the TAG Spartan Company.  Still, from time to time we jump into Warzone as well.

It definitely can be addictive. I enjoy opening up that packs and seeing what I get. I can't imagine coming into Halo this far from release, the game has a pretty steep learning curve, and with Warzone, there are a lot of people who've unlocked a lot of the higher weapons and just destroy you if you run around all willy nilly.

Well, I don't expect to dominate anyways. If I manage to squeeze out a couple of kills per match, I'd be happy. :D

Hey Cap, glad you checked it out and are enjoying it. 

Some don't really like warzone, but I love it. It caters to all play styles.

If you see me online, just added you, just join in. I am typically running with HybridHavoc dropping peoples shields for him to finish off.

Same goes for me.  I'm generally happy to play with anybody, I honestly don't care if you're super competitive or not.  As Strong said, I'll gladly steal kills all night.  While I tend to prefer the Arena, I can bring myself to do some Warzones.

Yay! Halo rulz!  I'll keep a look out for ya Cap'n.  Of course, don't forget about Thursdays.  We had about 15 people on at once last week.

I'd love to play Thursday night, but I teach an evening class on that day, so no can do. At least not until the end of March.  :|

So most of you like Arena instead of Warzone? Is Warzone too un-Halo like?

I like Warzone but mainly play Assault. Regular warzone takes too long. Frozpot you should embrace the bag o' dicks.

We fall on different sides of the fence.  Warzone can be a lot of fun, but when our group gets together and we matchmake with 12 people it actually can make it a little too hard as we get other teams of 12 that are more organized.  I've had more success playing in groups of 2-3. 

One of the biggest issues most people have, I think, is that the games can be long.  If you lose, it takes a long time to do so.  I personally enjoy just going in without caring what my K/D or W/L ratio's are, calling in cool guns and machines, and applying them to the opposing force.

Yeah - that's what I like about it too.

Sent you a friends request CaptNink.

Dem req points from full Warzone. I'm really enjoying Warzone more and more. I still prefer the classic 4 v 4 Team Slayer over everything.  I really am starting to get bored by BTB. Just really haven't enjoyed the matches too much lately.
