Another night of Reach

The venture into the arena wasn't quite what I was expecting when I powered on my Xbox last night. Hopping into a room with Chaos, she suggested we play 'Doubles Arena' while we wait for the others. In we go and out we come with a perfect record in dubs. Only one game was very close, but thanks to overcoming continuous camping and Chaos influencing a great spawn we were able to sneak out with the 'W'.
Camping seems more frequent in this Halo than in any of the previous games. A combination of map design, armor abilities, and pace of the game almost seem to encourage it. I'm not advocating a complete run and gun strategy, but holding up in a spot and slowing the game down to a crawl, well that's just not Halo to me. I suppose its just a matter of time before ways to more easily overcome it and make teams pay for doing it surface. Camping is not, in my opinion, a long term winning strategy.
I'm hesitant to say it, but Reach felt a little comfortable last night. By just saying that, I'm sure next time I play I will be going to buy a new controller because the current one is broken.
