Nope - a lot of other people are playing through from 1 on accounts they got after H3.

I think the Skill chart I mentioned is frozen. Each has an associated pop number and my memory for Lone Wolves is that is hasn't changed (must write it down). Perhaps it is frozen in a state from after Reach released. It would interesting to know if it was accurate at a specific date if not working now.

Interesting. Halocharts continues to show little change in Halo 4 since Halo 3's free release. There was a tiny increase on some days. I suppose it makes some sense.

I, for one, hate seeing a more skill-based FPS being chosen over the alternative.  I demand little trinkets and baubles that give me the illusion that I'm doing better!  Can my jetpack have a jetpack?

I want a skin that says "I heart Dixon".

Can we get matching skins?  For the record, I'm all for customization and such.  I'd like to see more of it, honestly.  I just don't want it as the sole unlock you get for grinding/leveling up.

Maybe a skin with a big fat 50 on it would look good on my Spartan?

Well obviously if there wasn't a skin for it, there'd be no sense of accomplishment and thus it'd be pointless :)

" 50 Wannabe :) " would probably work? Dixon's could be " Also Ran :( ".

At least I ran.  Did you ever walk?

My skill level was the same as it was when I stopped playing H3 and has moved (unfortunately down) since I started playing again.

Hokay, not to belabour this anymore. I checked those skill charts again and the one for Lone Wolves is stuck at 7,731 and has been so since I first looked, if I recall correctly. It's useless.

The Total Gamers Online says 5028 at 16:44 Eastern.

I went into all playlists at 16:44 Eastern and observed.

0665 Lone Wolves

1392 Team Slayer

0104 Team Doubles

0034 Team Snipers

 0270 MLG

0036 Team SWAT

0028 Rumble Pit

1110 Social Slayer

0012 Social Skirmish

0000 Action Sack

0288 Multi Team

0012 Team Mythic

0054 Social Big Team

0005 7 on 7th

------------

 

04010 Total - Total Online 05028 = 01018 not in MM.

Either something is wrong with Live today or the numbers are crap (probably crap). Even I can't imagine the pop would drop that fast. Perhaps the data collection point is totally random and it picked the lowest pop times.

I think we did that a long time ago, man.  You still playing Halo 4 these days?

Nothing but. I would play Halo 3 for special events, if there were any. The change over is hard on my head and I know I'll be right back in Halo 4 no matter what, so why torture myself.

I typically don't go back a title in the series either.  I don't own any previous Halo game discs.  I usually trade the previous Halo title in for the newer one.

Are all the maps in Halo 3 active? Or did they limit them like they did for Reach?

Most playlists require DLC, if that's what you're asking.

No, I have all the DLC. I'm talking about limiting the maps. In Reach they've stopped allowing certain maps to come up in playlist, ever. I don't know why.

All the H3 maps are in rotation.

I don't know what you mean regarding Reach unless it's DLC.  All of the on disc maps are in normal rotation.  Which maps haven't you played on?

Maybe you're right. In Reach it may be a DLC thing. A friend of mine was telling me that. He has all the Reach DLC, but not all the maps come up anymore. I don't know which ones he meant.

I think they removed the DLC maps from Reach's MM. Halo 3 still has all the maps active.

The DLC maps are still there, they just don't show up that often because no one in MM has them.
