Again, like the Halo 3 topic before, BAM! Here's the multiplay topic wink.gif

MOD NOTE:
Could someone sticky this topic. The same as the Halo 3 topics a few years back?

Anyone want to be my wingman for firefight and Invasion? happy.gif

Also, I very much dislike the matchmaking firefight. Why is there only one set (is that what it's called?) and on Legendary only?

Edit: So when are we going to have a big game night? Tomarrow? Saturday? I can only do those 2 days.

Kickass fact of the day. During Operation Desert Storm, US tank commanders attached loudspeakers to their vehicles and blared heavy metal music to frighten the enemy.

Same here!

It's not even a set either. It's just one round/5 waves I think blink.gif
Though I do quite enjoy it happy.gif Easy way to get points.

And hey, at least we finally have some form of AI in multiplayer wink.gif

I do love this game, though!

Got my first Hate messege today happy.gif.

Not sure which game, but I kicked some serious a** in all of them. Like I would have 20 kills, and the guy in next place had 8. I think it was the one match were 3 of the 4 enemys were afk, and it was just the one person.

Pff, ten thousand posts...if only I could care about such a thing. For caring about ones' post count is as vain as a vein wanting to pump sterling silver through the body for its own lulz. And we all know how Lulz affects the world. Just look at World War 2. Did you all honestly think Hitler tried to exterminate the Jews because he wanted to crate a master race that even he looked nothing like? I SAY BALLS TO THAT! BALLS TO ALL OF THAT! Balls to so mucyh of that, that this pretentious post has nothing whatsoever in the effects of the global war economy. That's right, I f**king said it, and not when referencing MGS4. Imaginitive ten thousand post mark? I think not....



And also, I demand everyone on the forum to sig-quote that. All of you. Especially you, Geo. You British guy you.

Firefight often has been trying to break my controller in half now.
I swear my controller must be dodgy or something. Because I'll be mashing buttons and nothing will happen resulting in death time and time again.

Haven't really tried matchmaking yet. Not sure why though.

Yea. The lag does that. I pull the trigger to fire, and it fires 2-3 seconds later when the connection is really bad.

Firefight is purely tactical. Hiding from the dropships, assessing which enemies are the biggest threat and picking each enemy off one-by-one. If you rush in, chances are, you'll get swarmed.

I played my first Matchmaking game last Thursday. I think I was the only guy on my team doing the work and had the smarts to switch the control scheme to Recon. I got 20 kills and 8 deaths, but only because the other team were able to co-ordinate themselves quickly and gangrape me.

The new default is infinitely better than the Recon scheme.

been playing some rumble pit, it's awesome, I'm really kicking ass!!! I need to figure out all the ranking/rating system stuff though... does anybody know how to track your progress/how good you are vs other ppl? I know that Arena has their own ranks and stuff but what about the competitive playlist?

Still not sure on this. I changed it to Recon after an hour, then realised I had somewhat gotten used to the new default. I fudging hate it when developers change controls. God knows how many times I kept throwing mines in front of me instead of reloading back in H3. Now I keep sprinting or jet packing into the sky when reloading. Or doing nothing when I try to beat someone's face in.

I switched to Recon before even playing since it was mostly the old scheme, but after having run into a couple of scenarios when melee would've been nice WHILE moving, I'm considering switching to Reach default.

lol. I love the new button layout. It took a bit to get used to it, but only for half of the second mission. I'm just glad they put Reload back to the good ol X button where it belongs (in a Halo game that is).

And good playing with you too Sbear tongue.gif. I was doing bad for the first parts of the 2 games. then about 3/4 the way through, I racked up kills like no other biggrin.gif.

Edit: Just played a custom firefight game to get all the firefight related achievements. It was amazing. I'll upload it to my file share. all you have to do is dl it, and set it for the courvette map. Enjoy the fireworks tongue.gif.

I also got the "Unfrigginbelievable" medal for killing 1000 enemys without dieing.

I also only need 3 more achievements and i'll have them all. I don't see myself as being Captain anytime soon, along with Lt. Coloniol (sp?). The "Skunked!" achiev. will also be a tuffy.
