I think you may have misread Disgruntles post, mattacus. You're agreeing with his assertion that it will play better with fewer players.

I was quoting him, but I was referring to others who bitch about chill out's sucky 4v4 campfests. I'm sorry for not being more clear. It was 5a, and I was eager to get to Lost Odyssey.

Isn't it possible that they've expanded the map to accommodate more players? I never really got to play Chill Out with anything more than a 3-4 player FFA setting, and the dudes sucked ass, so I really don't know what to expect. :P

It would only make sense that Bungie is expanding the map. In Halo CE, usually only a small number of players were in a amatch. In Halo 3, there will certainly be more players. This map will most likely be included in Team Slayer, Team Double, and Team Skirmish. So its got to work well with 4v4 matches.

First picture: WTF IS THAT. It looks like a piece of a Gravemind tentacle... but it also looks like it has eyes. The "busted tank" with biomass around it must be the containment failure mentioned in the "Smuggler" updates. That the two tanks are directly next to a (BLUE!!!111) teleporter is also interesting to note (the Smuggler updates mentioned something along the lines of "unauthorized slipspace conduits accessed."

Second picture: A cool overview shot. But that thing in the top right corner... It looks suspiciously like a monitor being held in something...

I have a feeling that Bungie has spent an extra long amount of time preparing this map. All of the hype they've given it seems to be a lot more than usual. I doubt that the map will disapoint.

fallacy. the confidence you have in the map is a product of the hype to which you refer, not the quality of the product itself.

Remember that we spotted this map way back before H3 even came out in a ViDoc. For that reason, it'd make sense that it'll be very polished.

Oh. Well, playing a video game in the presence of tens if not dozens of slavering fans is the best situation in which to formulate an objective opinion. My mistake. Carry on with your praise.

I like the look and vibe of this map, although now I'm skeptical if this is the right thread for us to be having this discussion in.

The Foundry version of Chillout seemed to work pretty well from when we played on it which was a surprise to me. Here's hoping for the best.

There's a pretty good chance that Cold Storage will release on 7/7 for free and the Mythic Map pack will consist of Purple Reign, Moonbase Alpha and an unknown map that will probably come out at the end of summer (August most likely).

Or the fact that the Mythic Map Pack might only have 2 maps in it.




Also. Just because we saw it pre-Halo 3's release doesn't have to mean it's extra polished. It could mean that it was put on the back burner because it just wasn't playing good.
