According to the MCC it's my most played map which is funny because you'd rarely see that map back in Halo 3

Long live NoNolesNeckin.

Ya fuckin' ganderneck.
Can't believe that Halo 3 is going to be the only one with an FFA playlist. What's so hard about having unranked FFA with all games included?

Edit: I want them to take out KoTH from BTB from all BTB playlists and I'll be happy, and have other Halo 2 maps show up for once instead of fucking District and Uplift all the time.
I never get to play district or uplift because the halo 3 cult will vote anything that has Halo 3, even if it's longshore slayer fifty times in a row.
I noticed this rather early into playing BTB and just stopped searching that playlist. Don't understand why nobody wants to play anything but H3.

Because Halo 3 has the GOAT iteration of BTB. If I wanted to just play CE or 2 I would go play Team Slayer because people love voting for those two in that playlist.

I can't stand Standoff but I'll admit that Multi Flag CTF when both teams are good is intense and fun af

I also forgot the GOAT BTB Halo 3 map, default Sandbox. They better put that version in the update instead of some autistic forge version of it.

Valhalla, Sandtrap and Last Resort are GOAT BTB but Longshore is Halo Reach forged invasion maps tier bad.

Longshore is a good map, but gets old after you play it 10 times in a row.

Personally i just feel that BTB maps that are predominantly infantry (Longshore and Complex) just don't work. They just turn into giant clusterfucks because there's nothing for teams to focus on (ie something like bringing down a tank or banshee or whatever). Even flags, hills and bombs just turn into BR, AR and grenade spam with no real kind of tactics. Those maps I mentioned are particulary bad for it (as opposed to say, High Ground or Last Resort) because there's no real flow to the maps.

"flaming nipple chops"-Your host, the man they call Ghost.

To say, 'nothing is true', is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, 'everything is permitted', is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.

Nearly all of Halo 3's maps are asymmetric so that could be the problem too. Maps like that are hard to balance because you don't want to make one side have a clear advantage over the other. Longshore for example on One Bomb/One Flag only has the Defense part of the map being used for the most part when other maps like Last Resort and High Ground have the entire maps being used with lots of different positions to control to gain map dominance.

Mostly infantry BTB maps can be good when designed right like Headlong and Terminal as those maps have a nice balance between infantry and vehicle combat.

My favorite example of how a BTB map should be made is Avalanche. Lots of vehicles with nice open areas, infantry combat varies throughout with lots of different ways to move around without a vehicle, and lots of power weapons to control.

I think your team gains points every time a Resupply happens. More bases you have, more points you get... at least that's what I noticed in a Dominion match I just played.

They're only doing it because they're doing XB1X 4K stuff so they were like "yeah may as well do this at the same time i guess".

In fairness though it's shaping up to genuinely be a good patch, they've been going pretty in depth into the development in the blog posts.

Then why is it that you can win a game with 420 points with only 2 capture points

Throwing it on Game Pass is a good idea too, though if they want to put it on Games with Gold as well that'd be great

Halo Archive forums shut down a month ago, the community now survives through Discord and the blog and has branched out to more than just Halo. I can get you a link if you want.

Lord of Admirals left over an argument about Ronin being in Titanfall and Lemon killed himself because of Halo 5.

Yeah, I honestly decided to sit out Halo until it got over its weird superhero [Brian Reed] phase. The Infinite teaser brought me back here.
