    So I pretty much used armor lock to exclusion of all else for like the first month of reach, but as I've adjusted from halo 3 I starting not needing AL to avoiding dying as much. I started using sprint some of the time, mainly at the start of matches where I had a lower chance of being instantly killed.

    You can pull off some wicked awesome shit like the sprint-jump-air tackle assassination, or getting a triple kill with a sword without getting so much as a scratch.

    Though reflecting rockets and launching back grenades with AL will never get old.

    Halo is the best lo.

    I wasted 70$ on MW2 and im quite content with reach.

    Besides blops won't have something similar to multiteam as far as I know. Multiteam is the nest.

    the thing I like the most about blops is that commercial that inexplicably has Kobe Bryant and Kimmel in it. With an RPG. The game itself will likely be a pass for me, heh.


    also multiteam may be my new favorite playlist. Even running it solo is fun. (unless it's rocket race)

    So I have a video of some of us playing Invasion Slayer last night, losing for about 95% of the match, and coming back to win in the last couple of minutes with quite literally 10 seconds left on the clock when Kor got the game winning kill. I was tempted to chop it down to the last few minutes starting with the turning point but, something like that needs to be seen in it's entirety.
    If Reach were a Football movie...

    I also have a video of me doing SWAT last night (going for the multikill weekly) and going 27-12 (one betrayal though) on a match. Unfortunately all the other competent people were on the other team.
    Link to the game

    If you guys want, I could post the video of the first one in my fileshare. Now that I bought pro, I need to fill those slots.

    Ah, yes, that first one was the game where we would have won much more comfortably if I didn't keep on running over my battlebro, Dime. Poor guy. Got a spawning spree to show for it, though!

    That Boneyard invasion game was great, there is nothing better in this world than humiliating people who go talking shit before the game even gets started.

    Shutting them down on the first phase was fucking good.

    I loved how proud those two Generals were over their boosted ranks and inclement weather, too bad they still sucked.

    I am getting Blops (or is it BO?) from Gamefly but plan to stick with Reach for a while. The Daily Challenges are a sinister plot by Bungie to get me to play every day. In some strange way I feel like doing well in Halo takes more skill than CoD, but I'm sure everyone has their own opinion on that.

    Also, Invasion is still the best playlist.

    That one race map that everyone died on was ridiculously hard to navigate - although I must give the author credit that those launch pads were pretty cool.

    Lots of fun games tonight guys!

    Also, here's a link to the video of the Slice N' Dice from tonight's Multi Team (my first snd ever!).

    How is it that this game can be so well made, and I'm not having any fun playing it?

    A night of nothing but completely terrible games and I realize how unsuited I am for whatever style of play Halo thinks it has. Either I have the completely wrong equipment for a fight, or I mistime using it, or I'm using the wrong gun, or I don't have exactly the right reactions.. whatever. There isn't jack shit I can do to actually kill anyone and I spend entire matches doing nothing but get more pissed off.

    I've played all 5 Halo games and they keep making it more and more "pro", and all it's done is make me completely unable to enjoy it.

    I can't imagine what Reach does to make it more 'pro'. Anything that was remotely like that is siphoned off into its own playlist by now.

    From the last thread (spoilered because it's a long quote tree)
    Spoiler:

    Just party up with someone who is at a different rank, and ask them how many credits they got for finishing the game. You should note that I'm not talking about total credits for the game, don't include the extras you get for jackpot/commendations/challenges/performance. After comparing some numbers from tonight's games, the difference between credits earned was constant. AS IN:

    Colonel Grade 2 was getting 112.5% MORE "Game Complete" credits per game when compared to a Major grade 1.... every time, same %

    I still don't know if it's a linear increase for each level or what. What this does mean (and my original point) is that 110,000 credits to get past Colonel Grade 1 still isn't as bad as the WOG3 grind, because the Colonel is earning more than double the game complete credits.

    It wasn't pretty.

    I managed to stay in positive K : D land, but my team was dying so fast to their tank and banshee that it didn't really matter. Matchmaking, I am disappoint.
