    Halo Wars Title Update #2 Patch Notes Discussion

    Halo Wars Title Update 5/12/09

    General
    • Flaming Warthog and Honor Guard Wraith skins now available in multiplayer to players who have those skulls.
    • The option to show Unit Hit Point bars above units is now available.
    Balance
    • The number of points to reach all ranks has been reduced. General now requires 2.4 million, down from 3.2 million, and other ranks have been reduced accordingly.
    • The max number of points you can get in a single match has been capped.
    • The Prophet of Regret’s land speed is now reduced to match other leaders.
    • Vampire Tech Upgrades now increase damage done by 15% in addition to their other effects.
    • Anders Cryo Bomb Upgrades now cost 50% more supplies.
    • Anders Hawk Upgrade now costs 50% more supplies.
    Bug Fixes
    • Multiplayer Matchmaking and Connection improvements have been put in. Players should find that their 2v2 and 3v3 teams no longer split up.
    • 'Ready for the Sequel' Achievement should now be rewarded properly.
    • Units on Exile and Crevice should find it easier to traverse the map.


    The patch should be available for download on your Xbox 360 in the next day or so (most likely starting very early tomorrow morning). Sorry I can't give a more specific time, as it depends on the Xbox Live Marketplace.

    Re: Halo Wars Title Update #2 Patch Notes Discussion

    I was curious as to what the cap on the max number of points in a single match has been set to. Does it take into account 1v1 games vs. 3v3 (where there is more potential to earn points)? Any clarification would be great thanks.

    Re: Halo Wars Title Update #2 Patch Notes Discussion

    I kind of was expecting more fixes. The ones included are good though.

    Re: Halo Wars Title Update #2 Patch Notes Discussion

    I expected a few more balancing features in this patch.

    Anders has barely been touched while Cutter and the Brute Chieftan haven't gotten anything.

     oh well I don't expect this to be the last of the balancing patches so we will just have to see how much this helps.

    I FJ I:

    Check the homepage, and read about the patch. Good news is its tommorow, bad news is, it sucks.

    They havnt posted any new information because there isnt any!

    All the patch notes say is what already been realeased. I hope they are holding alot of information back! If they are only changing this then we already need a new patch the day after tommorow!

    I dare robot to go against a good anders guass spammer and tell me its not OP.

    Etheir give us a formal written statement about how anders hog spamm isnt op, followed by a guide of how to beat it, or give us a real patch!

    Please tell me there is more being patchd. Dont hold information back, considering it comes out tommrow!

    Thoughts?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't YOU the one who always said that Anders and her Gauss Hogs were NOT OP?

    In any case, I'm sure this is all that's new, and there will be no new multiplayer maps or any other balancing tweaks.

    Not that I enjoy being a pessimist or whatnot, but if this is the extent of the patch, and if we only get a patch like this every 2-3 months, this game will be utterly dead before the 3rd patch.

    I really didn't think the Vampire buff was necessary.  They rock in groups.  And the auto stasis targeting is priceless.

    Re: Halo Wars Title Update #2 Patch Notes Discussion

    I think we can safely say 1v1 is totally dead. At least before we saw Prophet and Anders rushing, now using Prophet will be laughable.

    GT: Hostileeeee
    18-1 2v2 unarranged

    1 loss from having a Recruit on my team vs. a Commander and Brigadier. He played Arby and didn't know how to use Rage or upgrade...
    I love randoms.

    oh yea, this patch is fail since they didnt fix the hogs. they did a nice job on everything and hit important issues and some minor ones, but failed to see one of the biggest problems. They could have easily solved the hog spam problem by making them 2 pop. its only reasonable, here why..

    #1  if you scout and see the enemy has an air pad, you build anti air and a few other units of choice. But then when the enemy opens his base and 40 gauss hogs roll out your totally screwed. Hogs beat air, hogs beat infantry. Well micro'd hogs beat hunters as the assualt beam is too slow to track moving targets and cobras fire to slowly to do suffcient damage to the swarm. Arby and BC are great anti hog leaders, but a simple D Bomb puts an end to that perk real quick.

    #2 hogs are a 3 person vehicle, why does it count 1 pop?? the chopper is a 1 person vehicle and it cost 2 pop??? oh and the chopper sucks balls compare to the hog. 10 fully upgraded choppers will lose to 10 grenadier hogs and the hogs arent even tier 3 like the choppers.

    #3 hogs are too fast for their counter to keep up, air is the only unit capable fo keeping pace, BUT WAIT A MINUTE!!!!! gauss beats air!! wonderfull!

    This patch? Fail

    This DLC? Super Fail

    without new maps or units or leaders, this game is gonna die very quickly. i love this game, i really do, i put up with al the unbalanced things and glitches in hopes that the patch and DLC would brighten things up. Sadly i was wrong.

     I'll still be playing 1v1.  I enjoy fending off the rush.

    No, i said hog rushing wasnt OP, nor was her eco advantage, or atleast not that OP. I do belive the guass spam is OP!!!!


    1v1 - 48
    2v2 - 50
    3v3 - 47

    Best player evar!!!1!

    Shove the gravity hammer up the Prophet's ***, then vortex it.
