No problem man, that's why we're here.

Yeah it is a bit strange to put that in there, I bet they've been getting tons of complaints.

It's an excellent form of peer pressure from Bungie.

When Azn joins our lobby, and we start getting test flashing about how we're allowed to play, but won't get Breakpoint, we bug him about it.

Sure it's annoying, but the simple solution is to buy the maps. It's really clever.

Well... Standoff and Rat's Nest were in the first Halo 3 map pack.

I hope they keep brining us great new maps like the Noble maps.

There'll be another map pack fer shure.

I'm loving the new maps, the only thing that makes me feel a bit bitter is that it is clear that Bungie withheld these maps from the disc, handpicked them to be the first map pack( pick any 3 maps from the disc to replace the Noble ones and you have a... CLUNKER).


DLC is free money. You wouldn't dream of paying £6-7 more for reach just because it had 3 'extra' maps...

You were right, these maps make all the other ones look embarrassing! I particularly like Breakpoint, it's quite possibly the most fun I've had so far in Reach (It's SO GOOD not to have a lethal 1 mile trek for some shooting in invasion). 1 Flag is amazingly epic on it, but really it's just the ultimate invasion map. Me and some other guy gunned someone a wheelman riot in the falcon, I think we killed like 2 wraiths and at least 3 banshees. I only got like 9 kills (and an assist spree) but it was supremely epic for the win. I like how all 3 stages are intense, and not just the last one. I especially like how there isn't a single bit of camping in it. Weeding out campers on Boneyard only to have them respawn with shotguns and armour lock is extremely annoying.

Tempest is also extremely good. All I can say is vote for flag.

As for anchor 9, it beats the pants off the endless list of halo 2 remakes and it's very close quarters. What's not to like?

Same, except Breakpoint is getting a bit old IMO. the banshee is a bit OP on that map... coupled with the dynamic spawning... you REALLy got to time the spawns for that thing on both sides of the map... else you'll spend the entire game DMRing into the sky while everyone else is shooting at you...
its a bit too heavy on the power weapons too... 2 snipes, wraith, laser, 2 hogs, 2 banshee's ...
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.
