31k online on a Friday afternoon
no one cares about halo 4 anymore
A couple weeks ago I was playing on Tuesday night and the game only had about 5k people online.
Welp my Internet service just ran out, as did my 3-month XBL membership. I guess that's that. Halo Waypoint is down now so I'll try to post my stats later. I played for 3 months and had 13 days of play time, 2200 games, 30000 kills, 10000 deaths, and 8000 assists.
This game has so much potential, but 343i has been unresponsive to the needs of true Halo fans. That's been very, very disappointing. I honestly think a "Team BRs Classic" gametype would pretty much fix the game immediately, but we haven't even gotten that. It's so dumb. And then you play Action Sack and every once in a while you actually get Team BRs (e.g. on Shutout) and it's just classic Halo awesomeness. But that's like 1 in 100 games, and only on the Action Sack playlist. Smh.
Haven't played with the update yet. However, from reading impressions, it seems the DMR has been marginalized, making the carbine and BR legit close-mid range options and the lightrifle is excellent at long range. Automatics are also more effective at close range. A buddy compared the post-update play to Halo 3's.
