Thanks for posting the game. I didn't get to play an H2 MM game at the time, but am looking forward to it in a few months. Grenades appear to have been a much bigger part of the game back in the day. Reminds me of the "Hail Mary" minute (unlimited grenades) during a Medal Madness H4 MM game type that was in rotation a few months ago. I wonder if 343 will normalize grenade use/availability across the series? Stark contrast otherwise.

According to 343, the games will be played as the shipped (or in their patched/updated) forms. There will be no standardization across the games to account for the differences. We'll get to play them as they were "back in the day".

I understand each title will be as it was with the exception of some gaining MM and dedicated servers.

Grenades were a pretty big deal, i use them across all the halo's the exact same way. The grenades in H2 were a lot more powerful then all the current versions of halo out now. Plus not to mention the maps in Halo 2 were smaller more comptitive maps that we played on, you get 2 grenades on spawn, and then ones player drop from dieing and the ones on the map. We used nades a couple different ways

prenade players to get easy kills

nade weapons down from there spawns (oh whoops did i say that)

nading areas off spawn to catch players in hi traffic areas

nading yourself out of situations (example, if i spawn br 1 on lockout if i see 2 guys under glass ill throw nades to back them up so i can go up open ramp to my team mates)

nade jumping

tons and tons of uses.
