" If you ask me they are taking out things that made halo crap. (Floaty jumping) Characters now seem like they have more weight and real. Like it should be. "
Take out floaty jumping, but add jetpacks...
I think Reach will be decent for competitive play. MLG can do what they find necessary. Either way I'm sure you won't get a decent discussion on competitive Halo on this forum, as the number of good players here is probably verrrry low.
" There's always social.Otherwise, wait for ODST or buy the map pack. It's only $10 and it's well worth it. "
I don't care if it's worth it or not, tbh buying map packs is stupid to me, I barely play online, I only got 2 months of xbl because of summer to play with my friends, I would buy the map packs if I played always online, but I don't, because of college I can barely play, dlc should never be mandatory, this really made me want to sell my halo 3 copy, but I don't have anyone to sell it to, all my friends already own the game. :( "
You said it yourself. You barely play online. STOP COMPLAINING if it "barely" affects you.
Making the maps required for certain playlists benefits the people who actually like Halo 3 enough to play it regularly. Also, you should realize that Microsoft prices DLC, not Bungie. You are incredibly misinformed.
