Post subject:  Action Sack "To The Death!!!!" Worst Gametype Ever

Before I begin my rant, I just want to know what kind of crack Bungie was smoking when they thought of "To The Death!!!!" or even Action Sack in general, also, I do not have access to a B.Net account, otherwise I would post this in there Optimatch forums.

Now then, "To The Death!!!!" is the worst gametype to ever besmirch Halo (in general), Why?

Lag
The gametype is unfriendly to people with walmart connection (like me) and will be unable to obtain even one kill, doubled by the fact that without team-work, NO MATTER WHAT, you are going to lose, but I will get to that.
Although this also doubles as a reason I hate Action Sack (which makes this whole opinion, a bit bias, but I digress) as most of the gametypes are lag unfriendly (Haloball...I'm looking at you....).

Map Choice
The map choices for this gametype are rather limited (couldn't they of used custom maps built for this?) and small, allowing for easy "corner raping", and if the enemy is coordinating properly, you'll find you and your team being annihilated beyond comprehension (and vice-verse if you and your team are coordinating properly).

Camping is highly ineffective because you cannot assassinate! so even if you catch your enemy off-guard, he can still easily retaliate and likely kill you, there is no beat-downs, no instant kills, the fights are based off true-luck, a gamble at best.

Teams, And Teamwork
Now this is important, this gametype desperately requires TEAMWORK, something most of the Halo Community lacks, you'll find if you work together with your team, you can utmost dominate a team of lone wolves in this gametype (or vice-verse), also, if one of your teammates quit, its over.

I have yet to play a game of this where both teams are all coordinating, or both teams going lone-wolf, its just a game of "gang-rape".

Actual gameplay
The actual gameplay is very bad, the gametype is made for swords yet there are turrets on Asylum, and grenades on Zealot, This easily proves Bungie did not test this gametype properly, leaving for many glitches, Gameplay wise, your shields do not recharge, so you can only win 1 fight before you die, unless the person your fighting is unable to take your shields down, but regardless.

My conclusion
All I have to say is, stay away from Action Sack until this gametype is properly removed.

This is my Opinion, feel free to agree, or disagree.

I agree that "To The Death!!!!" is the worst gametype ever, however, I don't believe that Action Sack is rubbish.

Action Sack is just a playlist to have fun on. The Gametypes are just different and I think its nice to have a change from the other playlists.

While I do disagree on the action sack part, To the Death is horrible, as not only is it almost impossible to kill, it has a horrible effect on your K/D

I also do think Action Sack should not have an effect on your K/D ratio overall, its likely in Action Sack that your K/D will either take a plunge or go up massively (ala grifball K/D whoring) making it seem like you are ultra pro or terrabadwhen in reality the K/D of any player may differ, hell, a sucky player now has the possibility of getting matched up against MLG pros (or wannabe pros) and get rapped, not knowing how, and blaming Trueskill (which is partly the blame regardless).


and if you really are good...or bad

and this happens alot, expect a visit from gram-pa auto-banhammer (although the banhammer usually targets people that look like they deliberately lower there K/D to get matched up against weaker opponents).......stupid thing can't tell the difference between cheating and actual play sometimes.

But I digress
I hope Bungie realizes how horrible To The Death is before its too late (think of the rapid loss of new players because of the fact).
