    I think I did it too, way back when I did the H3 launch thread. Makes it really easy to spot when you're speed scrolling the forums - only now we have bookmarks, etc. built into the board.

    Also, the armor is slowly growing on me. Slowly.

    Might as well put this here, since I'm pretty sure no one will see it in the old thread now.

    Well, concerning the Spartan IV armor (book spoiler)
    Halsey and a team of Spartan II's and III's found original Forerunner Huragok (Engineers) on the Onyx shield world, who are now aboard the UNSC Infinity. IMO, this is why the armor is more Forerunner/Covenant inspired, it's a mix of that tech and earth tech.

    I'm thinking I'll go with the FOTUS armor and the Venator Helmet.

    someone creates a junk free-level gamertag like "aPAHalo4"
    everybody adds that gamertag to their friends list
    when looking for bros to play with, look at friends of friend aPAHalo4
    invite anyone on that list to join your party, or ask to join their party

    For future reference: It's never a good idea to make/release a sex tape.

    Also, the other thread was hitting into the 90s page count. Given the game's release in a week, probably better to start new now.

    Any word on coop in the Campaign, or is Spartan Ops the only choice?

    I'm pretty sure the Campaign has up to 4 person co-op.

    I think it looks entirely appropriate - a lot of the elements are similar to the Forerunner armor from Legends and the Prometheans in 4.

    You guys may or may not remember me, I put in a few games with DA BEEZ back in the day but faded pretty fast on Halo: Reach. It seems like each successive Halo game I've played less and less. Anyways Forward Unto Dawn rekindled my old love of Halo, so I'm looking into my preorder options and will likely be getting into it again, time permitting.

    I agree with this sentiment. Creating a new thread when the old one is only at 85 pages is jumping the gun a little bit.

    I rarely encountered cheaters while getting 50s in different playlists, and it certainly didn't significantly affect the outcome. Oh well, maybe boosting was more of a problem? Looked neat from what I observed of the stream today, should be enjoyable

    Maybe I shouldn't bother, but I still don't get how having visibly ranked playlists that people aren't forced to participate in is a bad thing. Maybe you're not into ranked games. That's cool. Go played unranked games. But why actively wish for those of us who want ranks not to have them?

    You have your rank.

    It's not visible.

    That's why I said visibly ranked. Some people like to see their rank. They like to know where they stand amongst other players, and the ranks of the people their playing against. It's fun for people to track their progress. I don't get why some people are so against this when there are perfectly good non-ranked (or non-visibly ranked) playlists they can play if that's what they choose to do.

    Honestly, I'm all for visible 'investment' ranks - based off kills or wins or points or whatever and hidden skill ranks. Keeping skill ranks hidden lets the game focus on finding you similarly skilled players while making it far less vulnerable to manipulation.

    Also, holy cow, the limited editions are sold aren't they? Damnit.

    Manipulation is the same tired argument people make over and over again. It really was never that bad in halo 3. People really didn't derank or boost very often. And again, there were unranked matches that still try to match you up with similarly skilled players in Halo 3. If boosters and derankers annoyed you that much, you could go play the other matches and not have as much of a problem. I still don't get why those who want visible ranks cant have them.

    Anytime someone makes the argument about derankers and whatnot, I can't help thinking in the back of my mind that they really just hate not being the best at the game, and they hate that everyone can tell simply by looking at their rank.

    Anecdotal all up ins.

    Maybe they'll add in a option to show it if you want.

    we get it, you want visible ranks, they aren't in the game, i prefer to look on the bright side and move on, or we could post about how much it annoys us to infinity.

    Not to mention, any game that DOESN'T have visible ranks seems to be full of rage quitters. Ever play Call of Duty or Left 4 Dead? There's a reason both games allow players to pop in and out midway through the game. It's because there are so many rage quitters who see no reason to actually attempt to win. They just care about their own personal K/D ratio, and if they aren't doing well, they leave. They don't care about winning a match. They just want to boost their own stats. A non-visible rank might help solve issues like deranking and boosting, but it causes a bunch of other problems like rage quitters and people who play for themselves rather than for the match.

    Halo is full of rage quitters.

    Nothing like spending the last 15 minutes in BTB snipers looking for the one guy left on the opposite team.

    The old one was over a year old and the new game is within a week of coming out. Circumstances means I can't update it anymore.

    It was time to shake off the cruft of the thread being so old anyway.

    Visible skill ranks will never be in a Halo again.

    There were far fewer rage quitters in Halo 3 then there are in call of duty. I've played both extensively, and there's no doubt in my mind that this is true.
