Hard Core.

With the recent playlist update, Bungie introduced (or rather, re-introduced, from Halo 2) the new Team Hardcore playlist.

Now, people ranging from devout fans of MLG to regular joes who like to use the Battle Rifle can enjoy this new "hard core" gametype. While regular Slayer is thrown into the mix every once in a while, you'll usually encounter either Flag, Bomb, or Oddball gametypes. And that's not a bad thing. In my recent play sessions I've found that the objective gametypes are the most fun to play with this playlist. Regular Slayer can get boring relatively quickly on the select few maps Hardcore offers. Or maybe that's just me.

Since its initial outing, Bungie's updated the playlist again, adding in Team Oddball to the mix. Which is, on Guardian at least, insanely fun. Makes Guardian feel just a little more like Lockout.

So, I love the playlist, but what are others reactions to it? Well, generally people aren't too happy. Bungie had setup a thread on their forum requesting people give suggestions as to what should go into the playlist. Most of which appear to have been more or less, ignored. This has angered some, while others are angry because of the playlist itself. To them, the two main problems with the playlist are either: it's not like the Halo 2 Hardcore playlist or, it's not like Major League Gaming's current Halo 3 settings. Either way, the majority of people out there aren't happy with the new list.

That being said they've failed to realize that this thing is definitely a work-in-progress. Heck, in less than a week Bungie added in Team Oddball (and probably something else, that's just all I've noticed). So some of the changes these people want made into the game may come to pass anyway. So their comments like, "bungie sux", "ima break my hallo 3 disc an go play COD4" come across as arrogant and childish. It's barely been a freakin' week yet people!

So my message to those bashing the new playlist is: either lighten up and deal with it while waiting for it to evolve, or GO PLAY WITH MLG SETTINGS YOURSELF.
