: Second, H5 multiplayer will be abandoning armor abilities in favor of a level
: playing field. They didn't need the MCC to gather this info, just 5 years
: of hearing players complaining about armor abilities.

If complaints about something indicated that thing was going to change, the world would have ended by now.

: Third, why have the beta so early after the release of MCC? While I commend
: their efforts for producing a beta, I feel they may be sacrificing
: long-term data in favor of short-term. Player longevity was a clear
: problem with H4, is seven weeks enough to gauge longevity and adjust the
: beta accordingly?

Isn't player longevity typically measured in weeks or months? Most game betas aren't that long, so I don't know how they could gauge longevity anyway.

: My one fear is that may be focusing too much on gameplay decisions and
: totally avoiding the rest of the problems related to H4 mutliplayer. For
: example, the unintuitive UI, wonky lobby system, team-only voice chat,
: poor map design, and other things I can't quite remember. Quality Halo
: multiplayer wasn't just about the gameplay, it was also about the entire
: package.

I'd say map design is part of gameplay, or at least closely connected to it, but OK. I don't see why you think they're focusing only or too much on gameplay though.
