Where to start? First of all, Epic congratulations on almost getting securing game of the year, but... not. Absolutely ruining with this 'great patch' how in the **** do you look at this patch and consider it a good idea? Oh GOD FORBID we play with a team we know, I mean its not like this is a squad based tactical shooter, which by the way tactical squads know each other in REAL WAR. Considering your pushing that angle so god damn much, yeah lets not copy Halo at all. The most successful Xbox live game of all time, yeah why would you take anything from that game? Just try and make your own ****ty match-making. Your so worried about boosting, why not make it so you invite friends and they are forced to be on the person who invited them's team. Damn, thats so ****ing complicated isn't it? This patch was an AWFUL idea, making it so you can't see the host's name? Great idea, so I can get matched up with some French guy in ****ing france and have my shots delayed two seconds, yeah thats great tactics for the French guy. The only way to play games now is to host games, and I'm sorry but I like playing off my own host, I like knowing that I'm not on host's team so I can rape him even harder, yes RAPE. And to be honest I don't give a **** if you ban me, this is my Gamertag too if you want to ban me from playing your lame ass matchmaking because I don't plan on ever touching this 60 dollar paper weight again. And what the **** is team stacking? You people on this forum are idiots playing with a team you know is NOT team stacking, how the **** is that cheating? You show me where in the Xbox live terms of service it says that playing with people you know is cheating? I thought that was the point of Xbox live? Guess I was wrong huh? Why do I even have a friends list? Oh look my friend is playing Warzone on Canals, be nice if I could join him huh? And I don't mean in a player match where I can get booted for grabbing hosts ****ing snipe or boomshot. The only thing you did halfway decent was make it so you can't boot from a ranked game. Wow, this game is worthless to me now. Can't wait for Halo 3. You had a nice 2 1/2 month run, nice job flushing it down the toilet. I think I'm gonna go play Halo now, where I will probably get cheated, you know actually CHEATED, but at least me and my friends can get cheated together! You know in a PARTY.. yeah take one of the best games out now and just make it ****, great job Epic. Wow Microsoft leaves you alone for 10 minutes and you ruin the god damn game, 'oh we have to use true skill'.. yeah Battlefield does it just fine, you can go and join your friends game, who you know is the same rank as you. What a ****ing concept. Oh that's something simple you could've put in as well, and easy way to tell what your rank is, instead of having to check the leader boards after every match. Now whenever we think of something gay in any matchmaking system in an online game, instead of calling it a bungie.. we can just say 'Wow, that was Epic.' Ha, Pun. Again, can't wait for Halo 3, this game is a WASTE. I don't know about all of you, but when I go in a game against a team that's obviously together, we're alot more inspired to whip their ass because they think they are so god damn good. Now for the part that you really ****ed up on, taking out cameras. Sure it was stupid when people went into private chat and called out where everyone is, but now there's now labels for the new people that play the game to call it. So now I have a bunch of jackasses running around trying to find me down in 'Fireplace side' on Mansion, if we have to play with random people, at least put in cameras. Tons of people make Xbox Live accounts specifically for Halo to make friends and play with them again and again. But now, if I send a friend request to someone, how am I supposed to play with them again anyways? Oh yay player match, yeah.. that's not a waste of my time at all. Cause I want this guy who worked good on my team to play in a ****ing player match where it doesn't matter anymore. And one last time, for good measure, can't wait for HALO.... 3. A trilogy worth a damn. Good luck winning people back Epic, you're gonna need it.
