halotroll is trolling
stop bashing. halo is a good game. and people that disagree apparently have not played with friends and ranked up with the same friends. it is indeed a great game.

You can call that hype all you want, but you're wrong. You claim the game is imbalanced but fail to cite an example, perhaps that is because the game isn't imbalanced, you just aren't good at it and need an excuse for sucking.
I have played, I was good, level 45 in fact...not the best but still higher than most. So on a Sunday morning when kiddies have the day off, people are not working, most people who own an xbox would probably sit down to play some games...now with 175k that you're saying, that is still only 2.16% 17 months after release and that's on a day where most people play it, it doesn't take a genius marketer to realize that those are some god-awful stats. And if your referring to xbox stats exclusively...you're right, no game has better stats, but there are several games in which MANY more people play at any given point than halo 3 so stop making it sound like the god of all games and stop trying to attack me with my apparent bad skill which you would have no clue about. Having played it for months on end after release with friends it got boring and I kept asking myself why I still turn it on every day. Games like CS 1.6 10 years after release have amazing stats considering new games being released, and that my friend is why developers should use games like that as a model.

Edit: My example...jeez any game can be used, any 1v1 can be used as an example for what I said. I assume you play halo3 so how can you say that its not heavily dependent on who sees who first in a match.

Oh Sunday morning at 9am is peak Halo 3 primetime? Give me a break. You keep saying that because only 2% of the people who have purchased Halo 3 are playing on a Sunday morning at 9am, the game was nothing but hype. Guess what hotshot, less than 0.5% of people were playing COD4 at the same time, and COD4 happens to be the one game you mentioned was better than Halo 3 and wasn't just all hype.

Oh and in CS who see's who first isn't the decider in who lives and who dies? Are you kidding me?

And CS, much like StarCraft, is an anomoly, so using it for comparisons sake is pretty dumb. There likely wont be other games that ever pull off what these two have, or it'll be quite some time before it happens. CS & SC didn't stick around for so long just because they were well designed games. It was mostly luck with being in the right places at the right time.

Guys, remember that if you want 50% of the people who bought it to be playing it online at one time, that's the equivalent of people spending half their life playing. 2% is one hour out of fifty which is reasonable.

For what it's worth, H2 not once dipped below first place any second after it's released. According to XBL stats, H3 has dipped to second/third several times now.

Judging by a for sale thread you had, I think it's safe to say you're a MLG kid that will defend H3 to the death. You seem to be a player that joined late in the game and missed out on the golden days.

Ask any of your "pros" what game they prefer. I'll guarantee you 9/10 will say Halo 1.
