I have two favorite Halo 5 Slayer maps: Plaza and Coliseum. I love both so much, but my all time favorite would be Plaza though. It plays perfectly. If I could play it that is. Somehow this particular map is hardly ever in my map rotation. Just yesterday my boyfriend and I played for maybe 2-3 hours. Guess what? Not once did we get to play on Plaza.
One of the hardest achievements on Halo that I ever accomplished was the ‚They came to hear me beg‘ achievement on Halo: Reach. The description of the achievement reads as followed:
Performed an Assassination against an Elite to survive a fall that would’ve been fatal.
So in order to complete this achievement you have to jump of the cliff at the start of the level Pillar of Autumn. Below the cliff are 3 Grunts and 1 Elite. You have to sprint to the edge of the cliff and then jump down trying to land on the Elite and perform an assassination.
It is tough. Oh damn is it tough. Well at least for me. I remember trying it for over an hour. Sprint, jump…fail. Haha and Emile in your head saying: Race you to her.
When I finally managed I was so happy! I jumped up and screamed. More of a roar if I am honest. It is such a satisfying feeling when you beat a tough achievement.
When I saw this trailer during the microsoft press conference I had goosebumps. Finally another freaking great Halo trailer. Although it is for Halo Wars 2, a game I will probably never play, it is just beautiful. I really missed this kind of trailer. The Halo 5 trailers were all meh, except maybe the first one, where Chief is in his Poncho…wait a minute…was that ever explained? Just thought about it and I can’t remember that it was ever mentioned again. Like the TV series…but that is another topic.
Seriously guys! What is happening to Halo 5’s multiplayer? People are dropping out of games like flies. The Banhammer does not strike hard enough I fear. Or these kids just don’t care. All they care about is their rank. Because that is the only explanation I have for that behavior. If they fear they might lose, they quit so that the game does not count. Ugh! That is just shitty. Last night I played alone against a full team. One by one my team mates dropped out and left my sorry bottom alone. I finished the fight and will continue to do so even if my rank goes down. Because what does a Diamond or Onyx rank mean, when it is acquired through quitting and unsporting behavior? Nothing.
The multiplayer experience is ruined for everybody in a game with quitters. It does not matter if you are on the full team or the one where people left. I personally don’t enjoy a game where my team plays against one with only 2-3 people. If that happens I just get bored and mess around. My favorite thing to do then is to explore the map. Or just jump across the map and see if anybody joins my shenanigans.
