It's meant to streamline the multiplayer and they were axed because they were the least played.

Everything in Halo Reach was good, but not perfect. The story was the best part for me. Anyway, its kinda sad to see playlist being taken off but with Halo 4 just around the corner it'll easily take its place.

Halo Reach had to been the shortest lasting community in a Halo universe. Players dropped drastically when Black Ops came out but still retained most of its "spark? though.

Now its 2012 and its a rematch Halo VS black Ops. So far Halos winning. I'm going with Halo for Xbox Live activity and sales dominance this holiday.

Really liked Reach's singleplayer.

To be honest, haven't really bothered with the competitive multiplayer part of Halo since Halo 2. Hell, I still play the original and 2's on the pc. Still has an okay community.

The games have always been about the campaign for me.

Well in my opinion the reason why Reach had the shortest lasting community was mainly because a lot of folks including myself didn't like how they added power ups to the multiplayer. Also it didn't help the number of REAL multiplayer maps were not as many as some of the other Halo games, Forge world made sure to that since it seemed like Bungie kind of cheated their way out of having more original multiplayer maps by having that.

I really didn't know that a lot of people still played Reach. My disk wouldn't load some of the maps for multiplayer because the disk was a little cracked.

I used to be a Halo Fanatic, but that is absolute bullshit. They're doing that for the sole reason to push more people away from Reach and how convenient that Halo 4's release is just around the corner. At least it still has firefight.
