It's sad to see the sorry state of competitive halo. It used to be the best competitive fps experience consoles and now it's a shadow of it's former self.

Yeah i remember when Halo 3 was the absolute pinnacle of online fps gaming.

Its because 343i didn't support competitive play from the beginning anywhere near what Bungie did for H2 and H3. That plus they tried to entice COD fans by adding more COD like features instead of capitalizing on what makes Halo great. Long live the amazing days of H2 online, some of my greatest gaming experiences right there.

Call of Duty has def taken the competitive crown. They need to do more clan integration like COD elite. Say what you want about COD but it is a very competitive game.

Call of Duty took the crown not because of it's competitive merit but because it knows exactly what it is and what it's fans want and caters and adds to that little by little each year.

Halo on the other hand is suffering from an identity crisis. It's trying so hard to be more enticing to the cod crowd but in doing so sacrificing what made it so good.

Rather than the game itself being competitive, its player base truly is. In my opinion, there are better competitive online experiences to be had than Call of Duty.

At this point, it's really just running on its name.

COD has an extremely low skill cap when compared to most other shooters so no its not a very competitive game. But since it caters to so many people its the most popular competitive shooter.

I bought a 360 in back i the day because my friend brought his 360 and i was in love with multiplayer. I wanted to get X1 for next years halo for that nostalgia but as i saw gameplay of halo 4 and what 343 industries made of halo it disaapointed me. It was boring to me and the story was abit weird with the covinent not being there anymore :'/ so sad

I think we both know the answer to that...
