Halo 4 - MLG Settings, competitive settings have finally been released

So, we've discussed before the line between competitive Halo and casual Halo. How one was so different from the other. A casual player will not be able to familiarize with the game, thus discouraging him from competing. Well, you'll be happy to know that unfortunately, that just might happen again. (Halo 4, Major League Gaming, Xbox 360)

I like this decision, though the DMR is my main weapon right now in any game mode, there's no denying the BR takes much more skill to use.

When Halo 4 first came out I was pro BR. I tried to stick with it but as I progressed finding myself facing better players who used the DMR, I had no chance at range, so found myself switching!

I think these settings will do the game justice, shame they haven't finalised the map selection yet. I'm guessing the majority of maps will be forge made considering Halo 4 has the worst maps in any MP game I've seen for quite awhile, I think I like 3 of them (Adrift, Haven and Abandon)

That's great n all but where the hell are the custom playlists? Goddamn file browser still doesn't work, i don't know why they totally killed the custom games potential of halo 4. Matchmaking is fun but halo has always differentiated itself with custom games.

Well yea that's what i'm saying the trial should have been done already, halo reach had the file browser available right at the beginning. That's why people were able to experiment with other maps and games, and that's how popular custom content was placed in a playlist.

Has anyone found an effective way to use the hard light shield.

I think the DMR is a great weapon but it is too high level of a weapon to just start with.

Ive been tinkering with it to find the right angle in which i can hold it to deflect the bullets back at the user. Ive had some success seeing as ive deflected boltshots back at people. Its possible and definatly something that requires skill to implement into combat.

So glad they scrapped the DMR.. it was painful in matchmaking to see teams just camp one side of the map and using the DMR to take shots.. that's not what Halo is supposed to be about at all. BR forces players to be offensive and think about their positioning and if anyone decides to try and shoot you from the other end of the map, if they can hit you, they deserve the kill.

Yeah it is OP, maybe make it more balanced. Cant wait
