Yes I agree with the status of your ranks, because you can't rely on Bungie.net anymore. The status bar isn't real time updates.
I still dream of Bungie making a Lockout/Midship, WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ALL THAT SPECIAL ADDING TO MAKE THE MAPS "BETTER". JUST THE PLAIN LOCKOUT/MIDSHIP WOULD BE NICE BUNGIE!!!
They needed to be fixed: (I am sure they have been said many times over)
My personal problem with halo 3, the melee range. At times it feels as though people are sword lunging at me with there AR's or maulers, wtf is that bungie?
-Eww, ugly spawnpoints = terrible experience. How many times have you spawned on High Ground beach, started running up to get back into the battle only to get AR'ed from behind because 2 opposing team members spawned behind you. Frustrating.
-AR, long range ftw? Eff off, nothing worse than having a BR and getting killed by an AR at long range. Just because he was shooting me first doesn't mean he HAS to kill me.
-Needler... either scratch it out or make it nooby again. I mean for Christmas sake the damn thing can kill you across the map. Now I am guilty of going back and forth on the man-cannon in Narrows just needling the ppl top middle but come on, for someone to sit there and do it all game, that gets annoying. Doing somthing for shits n giggles is one thing thats all the needler use to be used for, but now its beating out BR's and rockets?
-All weapons were not created equal!! So why make it seem that way in Halo?? Come on I know its a game but rockets should not be able to be downed by a man with a SMG or AR or Needler or whatever. I mean when your needler is quite possibly your most overpowered weapon, thats not saying much for the game.
-Bring back 4 Shots. In H2, not bragging believe me I wasn't the best I know this, I could 4 shot like a beast. Now it seems physically impossible to 4 shot someone who is even running straight at me. Go ahead, say its the "Auto-Aim" I really don't care, just make that 4 shotting thing a factor in the game again.
-Last but certainly not least, get rid of Snowbound!!!... Snowbound is an absolutely horrid map made for shotgun/mauler campers. And not being able to shoot through the barriers is one thing but when someone can lunge at me through the dam thing thats a BS way to play... blah, the map is for noobs. (Don't say I'm a noob for expressing my opinion, chances are if you LIKE snowbound, you are the shotgun camping whore who sits there and waits like a nerd)
That about sums it up. Oh and being able to double shot would be nice again, or at least BxB..
Note: No I am not complaining about the button glitches, personally I am happy I can turn a corner and not worry about some no skill nerd BxR me in the mouth, just because thats all he practiced his whole halo career and now has the fastest BxR imaginable. But the beatdowns in this game are slow, I was a BxB fanatic, Love the button glitch, easily my fav and quad shotting people made you feel like a king! So personally BxB and RRx should make a comeback, but how can they do that without bringing back the godawful BxR.
Just my Point of View.

1st: Thousands of noobs on Bungie.net complaining about getting pwned.
2nd: The "weapon glitches" was a problem with the game engine. (That explains why Bungie didn't do anything about it when so many people complained about it)
Halo 3 is still new. Sooner or later, gamers will discover new tricks, but hopefully someone will discover something similar to the BxB, BxR, RRx. (lol, I still throw the equipment because my fingers is twitching to double shot)
One good thing is that Bungie took care of most of the cheating.
Mauler. screw the mauler. another shotgun weapon that is half strength and fires twice as fast? fine. but making it dual wieldable is the dumbest thing bungie has ever done. i mean lets think about this for a minute. its half strength, but i can hold two at once, which makes it basically a full strength shotgun. then it fires twice as fast too? bullsh.t. it gets a little tireing when i have a legit shotgun and i die because someone is dual wielding the P.O.S. mauler.
also, the whole beatdown thing is screwed i agree. and on multiple different levels. the ball and flag melee's in H2 were good. a melee in the air would give you a kill, as it should because i think that a skillful objective melee deserves a kill. now the balls, bombs and flags do that all the time regardless? camping behind a shield door with a ball in love wolves is the easiest way for a nubby bitch to win the game. its bs.
another aspect of the melee's that needs to be changed is the whole, "in a tie, the winner is the person with more health." lets be honest, there is no such thing as a tie. check this video for proof. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WU0q2g_PV5A the melee system in halo 2 was fine, with the exception of meleeing through people, but i think bungie could fix that. the fact is, i use a melee as a strategic device when im down shots, to win a battle. who wins that battle should not be decided by a coin toss. thats bs.
other than that i dont really have too many huge problems. the range of the splash damage for the rockets is a little too small. its hard to tell how many shots you have put into someone with the BR. and some of the weapon placements are suspect. but the ones i elaborated about are the real big ones that piss me off. other than that its a great game. most of this is really nitpicking.
if you go in with party of 4 in social slayer or social skirmish you shouldn't have to deal with a retard that doesn't do anything other than make you press the d-pad to talk with your friends
in other words make it 4v4 instead up teaming up with a random
