I'm back kindof

5 posts in this topic

As if a lot of you remember me anyway :VVVV. So ya, I was a decent Forger during late Halo Reach early Halo 4. Made some cool maps here and there. I had a slight presence here, not as much as the other guys but it was one nonetheless. Halo Reach was/is still one of my favorite games ever, and Halo 4 was pretty great too. But then my Xbox broke and by the time I came back, nobody on my friends list was playing Halo anymore and one of my best Halo friends was off my friends list and just gone. I eventually started playing more with a friend of mine and I was getting back into it. And then Halo MCC was announced and I thought it'd be great, but the friend from earlier wasn't getting an Xbox One and between server problems and I didn't like H2A's Forge, and I didn't have any friends to play Custom Games with. So that killed my interest in Halo for the time being.

But then I got Halo 5 for Christmas because, despite my interest being killed, I still love the series and such... I just didn't start it until a couple days ago. I love it though. The gameplay is amazing and the forge looks the same. Having a lot of fun just f*cking around on Arena already. But despite my love of Arena, I've always been a casual custom game kind of guy. That was my sh*t when I was playing Halo. So along with some questions and somewhat concerns, I'm looking for some friends to play Halo with. Just casual custom games, maybe some race or some arena fun, consider adding me. My gamertag is same as my username here, UltimaNylocke. I'm a decent player all around, have some great games and some bad games, really good at SWAT.

So some questions, what exactly are reqs and how do they work? I thought they'd work with loadouts for slayer, but no. That's not the case apparently. My friend says it is Warzone and that's probably, but I still don't understand everything about it. But you also get armor solely from these packs? I kinda dislike that because it's rng. And how exactly has the Halotracks community been? I've looked at the maps section and I don't see a lot of different trackmakers. On that subject, where's the non-map maker category? I didn't see it.

Basically, I wanna get back into the Forge and Halotracks community although I don't think I'm gonna be as obsessed with Halo as I used to be haha. I'm loving Halo 5 but nobody to play it with :p

Welcome back sort of UltimaNylocke. I look forward to some cool maps from you in the future. To answer your questions,req packs are mostly used in warzone, but some do have daily packs that throw in boosts for arena and some for assisting and winning matches. A more detailed breakdown can be found here. So how has HaloTracks been? Well we are working on a huge update called HT 5.0 ant it will be awesome. I know because we have a friggin emoji. see? :halotracks: Thats how you know you've made it lol. In all seriousness, we would love more people to make tracks, host tournaments and make new friends around here. Halo 5 has a difficult learning curve at first, but it gets easier after about a week; especially if you've forged before. Finally about the non-map makers section, we abolished it like smoking in bars. We gave it the whole "It's not you it's me speech." Our fearless leaderLe Hefe made a video explaining why we did it. Check it out

Hey there UN,

Good to see you've returned. As tote trays mentioned, Halo 5 is a change of pace but still Halo non-the-less. To touch up on REQs, they're packs that offer weapons, vehicles, armour mods and power ups for Warzone. Armour, weapon skins and emblems are also obtained through these packs. Personally I despise this system, but it does fund H5's DLC.

If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to ask!

So yeah, played a LOT of Halo 5 the past few days. Loving the game. I'm a god at SWAT. A very inconsistent god but a god nonetheless. I also am not a fan of having all the armor / skins / emblems being unlocked by REQs (If we could have a middle point, that'd be great, I just enjoy unlocking stuff in video games and that concept seems to be leaving us nowadays) but if it funds DLC and that's why all the updates are free and stuff then that's cool. So yeah, I've pretty much caught up to speed on everything.

"I don't think I'm gonna be as obsessed with Halo as I used to be haha." Yeah this is starting to look more and more false as time goes on.
