    Well, tomorrow I will be playing about a third of how much I play now thanks to Big Team taking a powder.

    A lot of this doesn't make sense. Stupid update.

    My heart sank when they announced retiring Rocket Race.
    I think they actually cited the people that try to play it like Slayer as the reason for it.

    You know, those assholes who wander around on foot trying to knock you off of your Goose then blow it up and assasinate your VIP.

    Screw those asshats.

    WTF? :confused:  Big team is a blast, I've had some of my best online moments in that game. And without rocket race, how am I supposed to make fun of Dirge's excellent shooting being neutered by Cag's terrible driving? :D  It's extremely fun when played without those griefing losers.

    Just some more reasons we should forgo matchmaking and play battle royale and jenga.

    Arrivederci, Big Team Battle. You will be missed...:cry 

    Dammit, Bungie, that was my favorite of all playlists. Way to go. Way...to...go. But here's something that's been bugging me about the new achievements, other than the fact that I'll be playing Halo 3 even more just to get them...

    When I get 1000G in Halo 3 with some of the new achievements, does it still mean that I get the Katana and the Security helmet? Those are the only two pieces of armor that I need. Hopefully when I get the new achievements my question may be answered.

    So far as I know, it's tied to the SCORE and not the acheivements.

    For serious?
    Holy freaking Huzzahs, I'll finally be able to get the Security helmet without those pesky lone wolves achievements.

    Katana will be left in the unused-parts-pile.

    QFT. I remember having so many lulz moments with Big Team. Eh, looks like I still plan on sticking with just Custom Games. Jenga and Battle Royal is good times.

    Exactly.
    It would be too sensible to not get my hopes up.


    Also, I wonder how long it will take for the Bungie.net community to proclaim the game destroyed because you now start with a Magnum as a secondary in some gametypes.

    IT RUINED TEAM SNIPERS /Rage

    Bungie.net's community would get into a rage if the Elite's helmet got a new paint job.

    Duh, thats because Elites are for noobs and only noobs and 8 year olds play as them. /Bungie.net 'pro'.

    Don't even think about mentioning the R word.
