So you’d rather play H3 with the starting weapon as shotguns at 200% Speed with everyone having 3x shield?
Are you fucking stupid?
If a weapon similar to a BR existed I’m sure the option to use it or the BR would exist, this isn’t Counterstrike though so be fucking realistic.
Any dumbass who would decide to use an AR over a BR in a match would get destroyed, so the option isn’t available.
They don’t ban anything from games that don’t need to be. If you actually played any shooter competitive, especially Halo 3 or any other console shooter you’d realize that game developers include a lot of things now in days that take little to no skill to use, that doesn’t mean they’re worse it just means that they don’t work when you’re trying to promote skill over randomness.
Fighters = Nothing Banned
H3 - Equipment, AR, Spiker, Brute Shot, Covenant Sniper, SMG, Needler, and Plasma Rifle are removed
Why? Because they add nothing significant to the game and aren’t in any way skillful. The BR, Snipe, Carbine, Plasma Pistol, and Rockets are all left in. The rockets are not skillful but they are power weapons that spawn on the map. In case you don’t know anything about shooters(which is looking more and more obvious) power weapons are weapons that spawn every 2 minutes after they are picked up. Their spawns are located in spots on the map where both teams have an equal opportunity to get them. This promotes movement around the map, so in games that have no objective people don’t just hide on their side.
CoD(Which is not even played on LAN because the game doesn’t support it, but is seen as an MLG title by a lot of people) - Bans things like Grenade Launcher, Shotgun, Tactical Insertion, etc. Why? Because they can be abused significantly and require little to no skill, plus they can be used off your spawn. No need for teamwork or skill to require them.
Most likely you won’t read this, but if you do good job. Keep an open mind and maybe you’ll be educated about competitive console shooters and MLG.
Can you please make a concise argument?
Maybe address specific points so I can understand what the hell you’re trying to say?
I’m not defending Halos quality as a shooter I’m defending MLGs decision to get rid of the pointless and lesser skilled weapons like any shooter game does that needs to.
- Also, arena shooters don’t work on the Consoles and not everything needs to be an arena shooter. Get some variation in your life.
I’m assuming you’re referring to games like Quake, and UT which are just horrible on the consoles because of the fact that we have to use a controller.
- I’m also not sure if you like MW2 because you used it as some sort of insult, if you do like MW2 over H3 competitively you’re most likely misinformed about the twos competitive scenes, because Halo is a much better game than both the Modern Warfare games when it comes to competitive play.
