It is improved. An hour a day for 1 BP level.

Challenges aren't good still, though.
I can't believe we get to play the campaign next week. I am hearing on other forums that the pre-load is available, and is only 29gb when they downloaded it? The campaign at Xbox.com says 29.82 and the multiplayer says 29.82. So something isn't right.

Halo 5 says 100.97 gb.

Still a piece of s*** progression? Or notably improved?

Basically 6 matches a day should get you 1000xp which alone is one battle pass level, which is ok. That's not taking any challenges into account so over 6 games you factor in at least one or two more.

The big issue is you have to play 6 per day, you can't do like a bunch on the weekends and stuff, but it is a good start for sure.

They've said that this isn't all, so that's not too bad. They still need to overhaul the challenges. Having to get kills with some horrible weapon and/or needing a game mode nobody plays is still not fun. I ran into tons of players quitting last night. One round was me and 3 bots against 4 real players. The next match flipped and we were wrecking this one poor guy (the bots seem to be set on potato in these modes).

Managing the campaign via GP says it is 17GB and already installed.

Well you have a Series S, so non next gen 720p textures take up much less space.

The mode ones would be fine if they split the playlist like people want.

to me, the best way to deal with that is to get their IP and make their game so slow that they don't want to play and it forces them to quit, which will lead to bad.

no matter how many accounts he makes, that IP will be the same because it is not banned just slow when it enters the network.

Not happening.
Best thing is a simple option to disable crossplay. Same thing for Gears 5. Have you seen it lately?

no, TBH I am losing faith in Halo now that the game is FTP. Everything to me now is a suspect, almost everything. The videos that I have seen on youtube of how cheaters do are heartbreaking.

Now, every match I go in I am thinking everyone is a cheater.

For all the years I have been on Xbox Live, I rarely run into cheaters because the Xbox team had it in lockdown.

Now this feels different and it is just a complete mess.

I couldn't imagine how it is in Gears 5.

I am sorry but IDC what anyone says. It is in their nature for PC players to cheat, they can't help themself and I have the feeling that 343 will not win this battle.
