The formula = Be good.

If you can do that, then you're worthy of the apprentice ground pounder status.

I've never undertstood how it can be abused. wheelmen go after getting wheelmen medals, gunners go after turret kills. so why can't ground pounders know what they need to go after to increase their rank?

If you want to see how you compare to some of the tryhards in Reach you should look at MetaHalo.

As far as our own goes it's relatively complex and giving out the details would leave it open to abuse were someone could get a rank they don't deserve.

Go positive, play for the team, win more than you lose, run objective and don't waste power weapons. but not necessarily in that order.

hope that helps

Boosting wheelmans is obvious. You end up holding the objective or ignoring it quite plainly. Because ground-pounding covers so many aspects of Halo, it's hard to prove that someone is trying to boost their GP stats.

Moreover, this is a hog-related site originally founded to track who had the most wheelmans. On top of that, it takes a long time to reach 1000, 3000, 7500, 15000, and 30000 wheelmans. We'd notice boosting long before that.

Lastly, the formula has not been finalized. Everyone is set to Apprentice Groundpounder for now until we finalize it.

I'm sorry if you're annoyed that we won't tell you the ground pounder formula, but as Haut said, the key aspects to ground pounding are Supporting the team, Playing the Objective, and Using power weapons effectively. Excel in those aspects and you'll get a solid GP score when the formula goes live.

Thanks sarge, and no i wasn't annoyed I've just been curious for a long time as to why we cannot know what it is. That was a very good explanation, thank you. ::thumbs::

If the formula includes killing vehicles with sniper rifles then I'll be Grand Master in no time. ::flex::
