***Halo News***

Some interesting news coming out, both within Halo OD and out in the big wide world.




To Battle Royale or to not Battle Royale... with such a huge uptick over the past year in massive FFA Battle Royale gametypes, it's no surprise that the question is (repeatedly) levelled at 343 as to whether Infinite will have such a feature. 


It has now been confirmed it categorically will not. In the same breath, however, they have also gone on to reveal that Forge will be getting such a significant expansion that players could effectively just create it for themselves... Read more here via Reddit - be sure to check the links for your sources!




You may have noticed the sneaky addition to the events planner above... Halo Wars is making a quiet return to the echoing halls of Halo OD! If you're after some nostalgic RTS love, be sure to come along to the events, as we are currently assessing if we want a standalone channel for it, or whether it is integrated into #lobby-chat. Either way, I WILL be fielding Grizzlies. You know why.



That's it for this week. You'll notice that I am already expanding what this release covers, having looked at new game discussions, in-game support and the links to leaks, I'm still very keen on supporting all of OD with this, so if you think something should be here (or want to show off your latest creation), send it my way!


See you starside,

Just curious when it comes to promotions. Notice me and skooma got promoted at the same time and now skooma is up for promotion again. Now I have noticed this for the past couple of months with various members. I'm just curious to exactly how the system works.
