Ok this is a rant:
For those of you at Bungie that have provided the fabulous game H2, I salute you. For those of you working for Bungie that cannot get these bugs and glitches out of the multi-player game, you need to play the game as we see it now; super-flawed.
I played twenty plus games last night in BTB as well as Slayer, and to tell you the truth they all had massive cheating on both sides. The game is out of Bungieââ‚¬™s control. Gamers write their own rules and cheat in every match. XBL can ban gamers for this, but since it is so wide spread there is no method for a fiscal balance. Microsoft gives Bungie autonomy to a degree, but I'm sure handicaps them too. It saddens me to see such a brilliant game polluted with so many obvious cheats that can affect the outcome of any match. The stat-system is also suspect because of this and so are all the other features of the feedback process. I'm sure there are reasons why implementation is degraded, but honestly I don't care how they repair it, just fix it.
With all due respect to the Bungie team, you guys build the games we talk about around the water-cooler, and we buy them becuase of your skill and our need to kick the **** out of our fellow man. Please consider that the cheating thing robs us of this one element we so crave; equality of skills with an undefined outcome.
