I think some of that has to do with the very high level of competition on this test. When you think about it, Halo heads have been starved of a new game for six years and even longer for fans who hated Halo 5 and 4 but like the more classic approach of some elements of Infinite. There were hoops you had to jump to even get into the Flight - meaning casual fans werent in there. Basically, this test was filled of tons and tons of Halo freaks whove been thirsty for Halo for a long long time.And I'll just say, for whatever reason, this game makes me rage really hard vs. other online games where I tend to just enjoy having fun. Losing in Halo Infinite by getting stomped is really frustrating and just dying a lot in general when you have a bad game or get an unfair matchup made me rage quit at least a couple of times and I'm not the type of person to rage at a video game. For some reason, Halo Infinite is super sweaty and rage inducing for me. I don't know why, maybe I need to git gud still
For most of the Flight, you had to be on your shit at all times or get wrecked. I had lots of games were I got completely destroyed but also a couple where I had 25+ kills. I think once this hits the 'free to play masses' it wont be so insane intensely competitive in social games at least.
I love that the CTF scoreboard doesnt even list kill/deaths - and focuses on Caps and Returns. You basically have to dig into the menus to find kill deaths per match. This hopefully helps people get more brave to play offense in CTF and stop worrying so much about stats. Also, its cool it names who Caps the Flag on everyone's screen.
