    Well I can get the Halo achievements pretty easily again.

    Mostly it's because I fucked myself over. It's impossible for me to rank up. I jumped in never playing Halo before with friends of much higher skill, so I've got a lot of losses logged in and my K/D spread is shit.

    Your stats are bullshit. OK?

    Seriously.

    Nobody's going to send a red-headed Goddess to your home to fellate you because your K/D spread is 3/1.

    I know they're of no great importance. Still, I want the chance that others had when they started 3 after playing 2 for so long. But more importantly than the K/D is my inability to rank up. I've already talked to some of the board members here on Live and they've basically told me what I feared; that all those losses are stopping me.

    And it's not like I'd be taking advantage of any of the players online; just ask Sam, Prince, Local H Jay how bad I am at Doubles!

    But the ranking is not in any shape or form indicative of skill, as the boosted general or the restarted account will show.

    Yeah, we had a high ranking guy yesterday who was acting holier-than-thou all because of his rank was higher and had more kills than Primus... because Primus was driving the Warthog while he was the gunner. No duh you're gonna have more kills at the very beginning of the match.

    Kid also had an advertisement for a 1 month General account for 1600 MS points in his Bio, so we all reported him in retribution for following Jonathan Gabriel's Internet Dickwad Theory to the tee.

    The way you wrote that made is sound like if I make a new account it'll prove I have no skill.

    Well I don't have much skill now as it is, so it doesn't matter much. I've been playing for only 3 months, but already I'm fucked. I played over 600 RANKED MATCHES before I even started playing social. I didn't know the rules, so I feel like I'm at a bit of a disadvantage.

    I know ranks or skill levels or EXP doesn't matter to some of you guys. But it adds to the enjoyment of the game for me. And never ranking up is starting to take away from the FUN I'm having, which is really the point, right?

    So, Bungie Weekly update. Not anything earth shattering.

    Bungie Pro is getting render-to-video:
    And that new feature is? Render-to-video! At long last, you won't need to have a video capture card to free your saved film from the confines of your Xbox. Integrated right into the Bungie.net file-sharing experience alongside current features like "Copy to My File Share" and "Download to Halo 3" will be "Render to Video" where your short Saved Films or Film Clips (length and quantity to be determined) can come to life as a computer-playable WMV file which can be downloaded to your computer, or seen on Bungie.net alongside other game content like your Screenshots.

    We're still finalizing quite a few implementation details and trying to determine at what temperature a server melts into a pool of slag that will drip through the datacenter floor. So stay tuned over the next few weeks as we get those last details sorted out. In the mean time, enjoy the Title Update, and keep that great content on your file shares.

    MM updates (going live mid-october)
    All Matchmaking

    * Increased weighting of Oddball on Legendary maps
    * Swords Variants now tweaked so players do NOT spawn with grenades, but must pick grenades up off of the map. Any pairing of Swords and The Pit has been changed to use SWAT Stop.

    DLC Big Team

    * All non DLC maps in this playlist now skip after veto


    Double EXP Weekends (In Order)

    * Team Snipers (Legendary Required)
    * Rocket Race (Heroic Required)
    * Grifball (Heroic Required)
    * 3 Ball (Legendary Required)
    * Ranked Living Dead (Legendary Required)


    Rocket Race is exactly how fans of the recently retired playlist remember it. However, future iterations of Rocket Race will require Legendary so people have a better chance of trying Avalanche Speed. We may at a later time reintroduce the Tricks maps as well if the weekend proves popular enough.

    Living Dead, our first ever weekend hopper, is returning to its roots and will be ranked for Halloween weekend. This is a great opportunity to get some of those rarer medals for your ranked medal chest on Bungie.net.

    Icy Treats is coming back for 7 on 7th and it will be Cold Storage only.

    Also later in the update it seems they don't care if people are boosting4achievements, as long as everyone is actually playing (full party), people just plugging in controllers and letting them sit there will be ker-banned

    I'm hovering around waiting for the Halo3 hop. Roommate picked up RB2 drums tonight and I'm burned out on that currently.

    Also, updated the OP with Fyre's Condensed Friday Update, edited in the actual dates for the Double XP weekends, and Listed the Icy Treat Playlist in the Orange upcoming events section.

    We were the ones who thought that Melissa was real. Why you might ask.
    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.
