-M6D. Forge maps are a beautiful thing. If you don't want to play someone's creation, don't. That means if I put an M6D on MY map and play with other people with similar inclinations, who cares if we're using the M6D? If you're not playing with us, you don't have to use it.
Odds: 100 to 1.
-Lockout. Now, I don't necessarily mean a Lockout remake (some of the other guys seem certain we're getting one, though - I don't want any more remakes personally). What I'm looking for is a recognition of what made Lockout great - way too many of the early crop of maps feature little more than tight hallways and confined combat. This includes Guardian, the supposed successor to Lockout. Too bad Guardian features little of the verticality and none of the 'line of sight' (so many angles from which to view other areas of the map) that made Lockout so great.
Odds: Remake 6 to 1
Realization of the design features that made Lockout great: 4 to 1.
-Improved Custom Game Options. No starting grenade manipulation? Missing starting weapons (carbine, for example)? The inability to change loadouts for different teams in 1-sided flag and bomb variants? Each new discovery makes me wonder who Bungie thought they were kidding with a few of these customizable features. Voc recently pointed out that Forge is a huge step forward, but Custom Game Options (for those of us who don't mess with speed and gravity) have seen few changes (of those changes, some have even been steps backward...)
Odds: 3 to 1
-Ghost Rockets. Seriously? This is not a new glitch at all, but it still persists where others have been removed... I really need to get a Saved Film of this in action and start spreading it around because I just can't believe Bungie hasn't fixed this frustrating glitch in the new game.
Odds: 10 to 1
-Ghost reloads. This one's a new one, and it's a doozy. Think reload animations feel like they take an eternity when you're under duress? Try waiting through TWO of them (I've even gotten THREE once.) Most people act like I'm taking crazy pills when I describe this glitch, but I assure you, you'll experience it soon enough, and even if you don't, I'll eventually remember to grab a clip from one of my Saved Films. What the glitch basically entails is this: you reload, get ready to take action, then watch, mystified, as the game starts the reload animation all over again, thinking that you still need to reload. What. The. Hell. Guaranteed death. If this doesn't get fixed, heads will roll.
Odds: 3 to 1
-Touch Return CTF. In case you haven't tried it, it's broken. Gone are the glorious days of killing an adversary just inches from returning the flag you worked so hard to steal. Remember those? Watching in sheer exuberation as your foe wilted and his momentum carried him into the flag he had tried so hard to return? The new system where you 'download' the flag like a territory in order to return it to your base means that setting up a CTF custom game with touch return turns out to be 20 foot radius return. This is, in a word, WHACK.
Odds: If Bungie hears about this, they have no excuse NOT fixing this. Even money.
-Wide Open Spaces. Valhalla and Sandtrap are money. But they're the only maps where the vehicles can roam free? I'm personally looking forward to a few more places to splazr unwitting foes in Big Team Battle.
Odds: Duh. I just wanted to make sure I included one where I would definitely be right so I could point to it in a few months and act intelligent.
