I like it too, the new forum category is much needed.

And the news thing is good... But do you guys have it in you to consistantly have stuff ready to fill up multiple layers of news?

If you refresh the forum homepage, you'll notice the news in the right hand corner change (only between three things at this point, but better than one)

... I have (finally) reached the rank of Eclipse in Halo: Reach. I think it is safe to assume that this will be the last rank I reach in this game, at least until Halo 4's release date.

I think I might get to Field Marshall by the time Halo 4 rolls around. It's surprising how the player incentives in Reach aren't that great for me, though. The ranks feel meaningless after a point, I've got everything I want in the armory, and the commendations scale so dramatically that there's no hope I'll be able to max the majority. I kind of feel like they need to be attainable goals for normal players rather than just for those who play incessantly--or maybe just different kinds of rewards for different players.

Couldn't agree more Dave. I couldn't tell you how long I've been stuck on the Noble rank; I just didn't feel there was any incentive to get to the next one.

I've barely played a handful of live Reach matches. Really dislike this trend towards 'play a bajillion MP matches if you want this camera for the side of your helmet' nonsense.

Well for the most part the good armor is easy to access. Unless you want the massively ugly GUNGNIR variant or the Haunted Helmet (where you need to have purchased every other helmet and be Inheritor) most of the stuff you get by the time you reach Brigadier. I got my Mark V helmet and all the accoutrements to make my Spartan look as close to Master Chief as I can... the only other helmet I might buy is the Mark VI for the hell of it.

The problem with armor unlocks as a carrot was that a lot of the armor perms just didn't look good (because they weren't armor permutations, really, they were add-ons, so I don't have a lot of pieces on my Spartan because I hate how bulky they made them look in Reach.) So after four months of play I have everything I want.

They also really need to make the investment system matter more in campaign. The fact that you get far fewer credits for completing *harder* games in Campaign and Firefight (like Classic, for instance) doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I see why they would limit custom challenge payouts to prevent shenanigans, but it still seems like a weak system all around.*

*Actually, it probably worked fine in the beta environment, just not so much in the final game.
