  1. There are no new, upcoming specialisations. Dunno where you heard this, but whoever told you there were is lying. :/ Besides, 343i wouldn't add in a whole new mechanic in a single perk, especially one they've already given us a reason for not including in the first place. In Halo 4's more in-depth sandbox, dual-wielding would not only be incredibly hard to balance properly, but it'd also be unnecessary. We've got plenty of tools at our disposal.
  2. What's the point of playing the game once you hit the max rank? Well, call me crazy, but you could just play the game to enjoy the gameplay and story. I mean, that's why I play games to begin with. A rank progression system is just icing on the metaphorical cake. Just because you hit the max rank doesn't mean you suddenly can't enjoy the gameplay or the story of the campaign. If you weren't a fan of either of those, then honestly I don't see why you'd bother playing for max rank to begin with since you're not actually enjoying the game.
  3. I don't need to "wake up", and the Waypoint forums is but a small minority of the overall Halo community. You shouldn't look to Waypoint as the majority of players, because it simply isn't. I'm not acting nor implying you're the only one "attacking" this ranking system, but you're being rather silly in trying to speak for the "core" fanbase when, as I've said, you don't speak for the majority of the fanbase. I and others don't want nor need you speaking for us. I'm not wrong at all. I have a differing opinion than you. You're free to disagree with it, but it doesn't make you right.
  4. Yes, don't speak for the core fans. I happen to be a "core" fan, seeing as how I've been a fan of the series since the original Halo. You don't share the view of every fan out there, nor should you be so arrogant as to imply that you do. It's a competitive video game sure, but then why do you all need a rank to play competitively? You also don't bring back gamers by trying to speak for what you believe is the core fanbase, nor insulting them or their children/families. If you can't play a game just to enjoy its gameplay, rather than putting so much focus into a symbol and number beside your gamertag, then honestly I feel you're missing the entire point of what games are about.
  5. No, I'm not saying that you have to do that after every single game. You could, however, check it once you've finished playing Halo 4 or when you otherwise have some spare time. The Waypoint app is only a few hundred megabytes. I'm sure there's some data on your console you're not really using, whether this is data for games you no longer own/play, DLC or downloadable games you don't play, etc. You could at least try to see if it's possible to free some space. If you don't want to do either of those things, oh well. That's the compromise, and you have to determine if you really care about accurate ranks enough to bother.
  6. The ranks aren't invisible, they simply aren't there at all. They haven't added nor do they plan to add the CSR ranks to the in-game UI. If you really care so much about seeing your rank and where you stand, you're going to have to compromise and do it via their website or the Waypoint app. We all knew from the beginning it wouldn't be visible in-game, as they never told us it would be visible anywhere but Waypoint. 343i isn't retarded, it's just that this community is full of people who feel they're entitled to anything they want, and when they don't get it they blame the company for being incompetent and accuse them of not listening to them. Both are far from the truth. Just an FYI: The maps aren't pointless. They're there to give players new locals to play on, as is every map pack that's been released ever since Halo 2. In addition, Rumble Pit is a playlist players have been asking for and now they have it. They also look at the feedback for playlists and alter them accordingly.
  7. They've said from the beginning it would be visible in Waypoint only. If you want to see your own CSR or that of teammates and players, you can do that either by going to their site or by using the Waypoint app on Xbox Live. It's really not at all that difficult. I for one don't care either way.
  8. Why would they not have access to Waypoint? It's accessible through their website via a computer or the Halo Waypoint app on Xbox Live. If they can play the game over Xbox Live, they should be able to do either of these things.
  9. Please don't try to speak for the "core fans". I've been playing since the original Halo back on the original Xbox, and I've enjoyed every single Halo game to date. I enjoy some more than others, but never have I cared all that much for a visible ranking system. I also don't feel it at all necessary for players to bring a competitive attitude to the game. 343i never said that CSR was the Halo 2 or Halo 3 ranking system, only that it was a 1 - 50 ranking system. I've read the details on how it works, and it seems like it's been designed fairly well. Just like FleshBack said, they never told us it would be visible in-game. In fact ever since they announced the CSR ranking system, they made it clear it would be visible on Waypoint and not once did they ever mention it being visible in-game. Why do you and so many players seem to need a visible ranking system to play competitively? I and many others, including those who frequently play the original Halo's multiplayer, don't need any sort of visible ranking system in order to be competitive. We can do so simply by trying to do our very best to win and go positive in each game. You can check the CSR of players you've played with on Waypoint. If you don't want to do that it's your call, but that's the compromise you're going to have to live with. Waypoint or nothing.
  10. You can either play them via custom games with friends, or just hope that people vote for one of the maps if the entire lobby ends up having the map pack(s). That's really all you can do, sorry.
  11. In playlists other than those dedicated specifically to DLC everyone in the lobby has to have the maps, otherwise it won't give anyone the option to vote on them.
  12. If you check your download history you should find the Map Pass and Crimson Map Pack there. Simply download the Map Pass and then re-download the Crimson and Majestic Map Packs from the store via Halo 4's main menu and you should be all set! I'm pretty sure it has to be via Halo 4's main menu, otherwise it'll try to charge you for the map packs.
  13. Here's a list of some of the games I play on the currentsystems I own. I've got plenty of other games, especially on older systems, but I am not gonna list them all. There's waaaaaay too many! xD Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Black Ops II Dead Rising Earth Defense Force 2017 Marathon: Durandal Minecraft Ms. Splosion Man Splatterhouse Ultimate DOOM PS3 Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain Demon's Souls Dragon Age: Origins inFamous Journey Killzone 2 & Killzone 3 Portal 2 Resistance: Fall of Man Threads of Fate Wipeout HD PC Audiosurf Binding of Issac Blocks That Matter Chocolate Castle Crayon Physics Deluxe Cthulhu Saves the World DOOM 3 & DOOM 3: Resurection of Evil Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Fallout & Fallout 2 Fallout Tactics Final DOOM Gish Half-Life Jet Set Radio Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver LIMBO Marathon 1, 2, & 3 Master Levels of DOOM II Minecraft Quake 1, 2, & 3 (plus the expansions for 1 & 2) Realm of the Mad God Spiral Knights Super Crate Box Super Hexagon Super Meat Boy Terraria Ultimate DOOM
  14. Well the new Forge Island DLC is pretty much that. There's literally nothing on it but maybe one to three spawn points, and these are easy to find.
