Microsoft is the latest company to make headlines for its controversial decision, as fans of the franchise are slamming 343 Industries with a petition.
Halo Infinite fans are slamming 343 Industries over their latest controversial decision. The game is set to release on October 27th, 2020.
It’s not often that fans ask for a game’s release date to be pushed back, but that’s precisely what many Halo fans have been asking 343 Industries to do with Halo Infinite, which is set to release globally in December for Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC. To put it mildly, fans of the franchise are a little nervous about the game right now, which means any negative news is magnified. The game’s Battle Pass is the subject of the most recent negative news.
On Twitter, 343 Industries’ community manager, John Junyszek, confirmed that there would be no per-match XP at launch. Rather, gamers will earn points by completing tasks in the Battle Pass.
Nick, how are you? Players will be challenged to play and win matches as they advance through the Battle Pass. Despite the fact that there is no per-match XP at launch, you will continue to advance through challenges and therefore the BP. We’ll explain the situation on the blog.

Over 300 Halo fans have responded to the tweet conveying this information, with nearly every single one of them criticizing the choice. According to gamers, this approach discourages grinding, does not adequately compensate players each match, and will lead to players pursuing challenges rather than completing goals throughout games. Of course, it remains to be seen whether or not these rumors are accurate, but one thing is certain: Halo fans are furious.
This does not sit well with me.
This does not sit well with me. It’s not a pleasant feeling to want to go on and play a few games only to discover that I’ve made no meaningful progress.

There is no reason for this.
Other things I can understand to a point, but an XP system is a standard feature in almost every online game ever created. There’s no reason why it isn’t the case.

Consumer Unfriendly is the polar opposite of Consumer Friendly.
That, in my opinion, is the polar opposite of consumer-friendly. I like how the battle pass reduces FOMO, but limiting all of your progress to a small number of tasks contradicts the point of the consumer-friendly approach.

Please alter this.
Please think about making adjustments. This is such a terrible method; you claim to be collecting input, but you really need to listen to it.

This is a terrible idea.
Change this, buddy. People concentrating on difficulties rather than playing as a team will spoil matches.
This is a really terrible concept. I’m not sure how this got beyond the planning stage.

In fact, it’s a Terrible Idea.
For an XP system, this is a terrible concept. There needs to be a method to earn XP while playing the manner you choose, rather than being compelled to do it via XP challenges.

There’s No Need to Grind
It seems to me that “That concludes today’s progress! If you want to gain items in the battle pass you paid for, you’ll have to play more tomorrow!”
I should be rewarded for putting in the additional work if I want to grind…
Maybe I’m missing something, but this doesn’t seem to be a favorable situation.

Battle Pass has been ruined.
No, no, no. This seemed so great, like the poster child for all Battle Passes, and then… It should always be both; regular play should be praised as well; allow individuals to develop on their own terms, and don’t put a stick between their legs if they are no longer challenged.

For the Love of F**ks Sake
So if you complete your tasks, you won’t be able to advance in your battlepass? Oh, for fuck’s sake, haven’t you learnt anything from Gears 5 and the Coalition?
