In Response To: Halo Wars: Four Long Years... (kornman00)

: (I didn't want to wait another year to post this)

: So, Halo Wars 'celebrated' four years of being released just a couple days
: ago.

: While I'm not aware of any news in regards to any potential sequels (which
: may be a blessing...would rather see one on a next-gen box), the original
: game did go on sale for a single day just recently.

: But what about DLC? Can't we see the DLC for this game (which had over at
: least 7.5k people playing this past weekend) go on sale, even if for a
: limited time? Or even become free? Well, I guess doing the latter went out
: the door with the original Xbox, but still. 343i'ers, can any of you pull
: some strings to try and promote more people to get the DLC via putting
: them on sale or such?

: The map pack DLC may only include one 3v3 map (plus one 2v2, and two 1v1 maps
: IIRC), but it sure as gives some relief from playing the same three 3v3
: maps all the live long day. I'm pretty sure I can count on both hands the
: number of times I've played on Glacial Ravine (out of a total of 828
: games).

: Please 343i, help the general population upgrade from 3 to 4 3v3 maps. Surely
: it can't set you that far back in resources for your next Halo game
: rush.
I totally agree with this notion, if MS wants a boost of population for the game, it would seem logical to offer DLC up for a discount or even for free. For those that managed to buy the game on sale last week, I think this would encourage old members to return to play it as well. I've only recently begun to play the game again, because I miss it so dearly. You can only play so much 4 before the calling of commanding armies returns.

As far as I know the DLC itself has only bee discounted once in those four years and never since. For a "commercial success" as a console RTS, I expected more support this many years later.
