    Wow, this could either make matchmaking amazing.....or just completely ruin it. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. By the way thanks for letting everyong know.

    It's most likely going to be more of competitive types of maps that are perfectly balanced.

    I doubt my Maps would ever get in. So really I see not point in it. I still blame Stosh.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we wind up seeing some of the more popular game variants showing up. Things like Peasant Hunt, Cat & Mouse, In The Shadows, Fat Kid, Storm the Beach, and similar maps/variants will likely be common occurrance in these lists.

    Still, I would think that they should contact the external forums to find out about favorite custom gametypes. That is, they should ask us which games to include. ^_^

    What's with B.Net? It's screwy and it won't load up.

    Well, they will go to their favorite forgers and stuff from the past. It would be sweet if they came our way for maps, since we have such an abbundance of maps that are great. But I feel like it might be it's own playlist.

    Hopefully there will be a ranked and a social playlist. Social for more casual maps, and then ranked for competitive.

    Loads fine for me. Probably just your hawaiian wal-mart connection.

    the only thing i see coming out of this is an infection playlist... most of the real good competive custom maps are either on the MLG playlist already, or use the unlimited budget glitch. and some of you may or may not know, that the budget glitch can cause lag. that being said, i dont think we will be seeing any of the really good competitive maps in a playlist, bungie doesnt want to take a risk on that IMO. but some really fun custom infection maps dont use the budget glitch so i see nothing wrong with that.

    That is only if you abuse the budget glitch. Lag almost never happens because it will say- Can't spawn object to many on map.

    Bungie doesn't like very much Budget glitch though. It is basically cheating. I expect to see a lot of minigames such as Duck hunt in this playlist.

    BTW there is no such thing as a good infection playlist.

    i hope they come to forgehub, they didnt a while ago for maps, and thats how i got involved in the community. unfortunately, i think they're gonna use some **** bungie favorites maps, made by that mr volciferous guy, who ran bungie fav's for like three weeks. i also think its either gonna be infection, or some social maps on foundry.

    orly? i can think of a few custom infection games that could make a "good playlist" you may say.

    The Lost Chamber, Cat and Mouse, Duck Hunt, Jenga Tower, (yes, i consider those infection because they have the infection gametype) Omega Journey and Similar Maps, The Vents (although its not one of my favorites... it's possible...)

    IMO the smart thing to do if they would put the custom playlist is have two sections, the competitive playlist and casual playlist. Also there are good infection games that could make up a infection playlist. but IMO most of them are either mini games(my fav), super fast one hit kill zombies or "fat kid" which IMO the last two aren't fun. In the Shadows gametype/maps, The Lost Chamber, Cat and Mouse, Duck Hunt, Jenga Tower and a few others i forgot, could make up a playlist but Bungie has to take into account the rest of the peoples interests Like super fast one hit kill zombies or "fat kid" which many people absolutely adore. IMO when you're playing these games as a zombie, it isn't fun at all. Then it gets repetitive and people quit. It'll be difficult to use the super fast one hit kill zombies or "fat kid" maps which IMO i hope they don't try to add these "fat kid" maps, but what i'm trying to say is not all infection maps are like that , like minigame maps and others. its possible to have an infection playlist.

    Don't Bungie have a thing against budget glitched maps though? I heard that they didn't want to put budget glitched maps on their playlists, and Amplified was rebuilt un glitched to this end.

    If this is true then its going to seriously limit what Bungie have to choose from, especially if they come to FH for maps. I'm sure if they put out a challenge of some kind then there would be many great non glitched maps made for the purpose, but many old faves are out of the question if this prejudice is true.

    Hopefully they do come to us. But I can imagine the whole playlist full of non-interlocked:poop: maps. This will happen if they look toward the site running riot. I mean come on when they had their go at bungie favorites they put a forged isolation map..

    So hopefully they do come to us. If they don't this playlist will be as popular as team tactical.

    this could make matchmaking amzazing if the add maps like(i.e. kuntucty tango, porcoline pony,gridlock) or totally **** us over if they did like what they did and put maps that seem to have object thrown up on them

    yes it is true. there were some MLG maps that they didnt want to put in the playlist or something i think because they were experiencing some bad lag from the budget glitch. i dont know if amp had to be remade, but i wouldn't be surprised if that's true. so that's what would be hard for this. finding quality maps that are fun to play and constructed well, but NOT budget glitched. there's not much maps out there that fit those standards...
