This board scares the living s*** out of me. So much goddamn hostility. If everyone could state their opinions in a non-aggressive way with positive or no response, things could be so much better! As of now, people either want to force others to love everything about Halo 4 or others attack people who don't like what they do. I'm looking forward to Halo 4. I haven't played Halo in a long time, but I did enjoy myself with every iteration.
I hope 343i in the end does make a game that can ultimately cater to everyone's needs, but we really can't know until the game's out. I'm open minded even to additions however.
They changed CTF so that you can't drop the flag, yet they made throwing the oddball/grifball/bomb possible.
But that's not the problem. The problem is that there is no option to make the flag droppable in custom games. (They also could have made both sides happy by just having an old CTF gametype as well as the new CTF gametype in matchmaking.)
That alone makes me worry about Halo 4. (I'm also not pleased with some of the other changes. For example, I do not like that perks are in Halo 4, especially when they are unbalanced. Or when you need a perk just to pick up grenades from dead bodies.)
