C...S...R... What's That Stand For?
 
COMPETETIVE SKILL RANK

You will have a unique CSR visible per playlist.
Your highest CSR across all playlists will be promoted in the player profile on Halo Waypoint.
CSR uses familiar 1-50 scale.
When CSR launches, everyone will start with a fresh rating.

Our targeted launch date for CSR is April 2013, and we will be re-configuring some of our most competitive playlists to accommodate the launch of the feature.



I like Spongebob. The old Spongebob, at least. He's cool.

The Halo Bulletin: 1.23.13: http://blogs.halowaypoint.com/Headli...tin-12313.aspx

Does anyone still read those bulletins? Gotta stay updated.

Razor Buddha 01-26-2013 03:44 AM

Will anyone still be playing in April? Seems like a really bad idea to wait that long to give us something that should have shipped with the game. It makes me feel like they don't care about the people who care about this.

It's coming far too late for it to even matter and it's not even going to be visible in-game.

DarkReign2021 01-26-2013 05:40 AM

Actually Wolf, according to the bullet list Lemon posted, it clearly states that there will be a visible rank for each individual playlist. It'll be just like Halo 3's system.

Initially, that's what I thought. But after re-reading it, it could very well be visible in-game.

And this thread also peaked my interest.

Yes, visible.. on Waypoint.

OT: Same opinion as users above. It's one thing that it takes until April, but to have it only visible for players on their smartphones or computer? GTFO with that nonsense.

It should be like on Halo 3 (wishful thinking) I will check it out though on my smartphone what level I am :)

343: More Disappointing Than Prom Night

At this rate, nothing 343 does will be like Halo 3.

EDIT: I think it's safe to say that almost all of us on these Forums are bored with Halo 4 and disgusted with how terrible 343 has handled it.

I'm more bored than disgusted at this point.

Well, perhaps disgusted was a little too strong to say. Bored, for sure though.

Agreed, I played 439 days of Reach 360voice.com stats. I don't think Halo 4 will get that high on my list. currently 58 days though it's new so we'll see. Maybe 343i release a magic update that fixes everything.

Does that site go by a full 24-hour day you played or just days you booted up the game? Cause 400 days on Reach is insanity lol.

Halo 4 will see my attention in ways of DLC achievements in February and April & one hour Spartan Ops sessions on Monday nights. That's it.

Booted up of course I'm not leaving my Xbox on for that long :) I had another friend of mine ask the same question he thought I was crazy for playing too much. Edit: Rapt.com tracks real hours but I joined late so I have 373hrs Reach and 338hrs Halo 4. Both Elite rank.http://raptr.com/game/Halo-Reach/wal...ug_query=Reach

Get 5920 more hours or achievements to be the #1 player on Raptr! - Yeah right. H4 all day? (that's 200+ days he/she must have cheated the timer H4 has been out 100+ days)

Yes bring on the DLC and true skill.

Okay good, because I was wondering how it was possible to play that much :p

Site says I have 435 days of Reach played which I entirely blame on my job. I think it may be a little off, though, cause it says I only played 21 days of Halo 3 and that's obviously wrong.

Edit: I also sometimes just left my xbox on for extended periods of time with Reach in the tray running as I did other things at work so that explains some of the time.

I'll never know my stats because I'm too lazy to make an account on that site :(

I have 4 more days than you, I better go play Reach before you catch up :). 21 days might be because you joined after you played much Halo 3. I have 103 days on Halo 3 since Oct.2009.

Well, that's disappointing to see.

But I think 343i is finally understanding what the community wants to receive. 343i is slowly bringing changes and cooking things up in a mischievous manner behind the scenes. This new CSR in Halo 4 is a tiny step towards the direction we've been clamouring for, and the implementation of this "Forge test" playlist is something great, too. A friend just gave me another 14 day trial code for Gold so I'm able to hop on Live for the next 2 weeks. I just played a match on "Shutout," the Lockout remake, and this was the most exhilerating match I have played on Halo 4 to date. I'm pretty pumped for Grifball next Monday, and new changes or maps that could be seen in the Forge test playlist.

Kill off enough multiplayer population and 343 will be forced to cater to the fanbase and make the changes that you guys want. The gaming industry has been in a position where it thinks it owns us these past few years with things like paid DLC and Online Passes. This isn't true. Gamers own the industry, so it's time to take back what is ours (If only America would get into this mindset about our government...)

So we get everybody we can (at least everybody on these Forums) to stop playing Halo for 6 months to show 343 we're not fucking around?

I'm down.

DarkReign2021 01-27-2013 04:42 AM

Don't see why it wouldn't work. There's a line between defending the game you've created and wanting some sort of population. And since Halo is MS's baby, I don't think they'll just sit back and let Halo die.

Now that you mention Microsoft, I just wanna add it that they need more exclusives.

Anyways, I'm sure getting everyone on these Forums to stop playing Halo won't happen but I'll surely do it. The only incentive I have to play is Spartan Ops anyways and that only lasts like all of 60 minutes on Monday nights.

One hour of Halo 4 a week? I'm sure 343 will get my message.

Call of Duty makes them more money. MS has exclusive deals with Activision for CoD. That's their baby now.

Halo is becoming a niche product.

Yeah, 360 players get DLC a month earlier than the rest, right? I remember hearing that about MW3. Is the contract still holding with BO2 and future CoD titles?

It's been like that since at least BO1. No sign of stopping although a new system could mean change. I doubt it though seeing how out of 11+ million units sold the first week for BO2, 6+ million were on Xbox alone.

DICE and Sony play the same game with BF3

Dang really? I hadn't known that. Activision is fucking rich dude. They don't mess around.

Off-Topic: Anyone think Activision will smother Bungie on Destiny?

I think they've already got 4 games planned, right? Bungie/Activision slated the first title for release later this year(subject to change) and then they stated "Destiny" would be an ambitious project, expanding its lore to the likes of Star Wars. They've planned future titles every other year following the initial release of Destiny in late 2013. So if they do follow through with their schedule, Destiny 2(or whatever it could be called) would be out late 2015, Destiny 3 in 2017, and Destiny 4 in 2019.

Edit: My memory is better than I thought. Here's more stuff to read up. There's these things called "Comets" too.
