Halo 3 AutoUpdate Changes Melee Situations
There’s a new update out for Halo 3 that should automatically download once you log on. Mostly, the update changes the whole melee system and how a winner is decided in the event of a simultaneous clash. I’m not going to call it a “fix,” because they didn’t really correct a problem so much as just altered how the game works (plus I wasn’t exactly up in arms about the old system anyway). Now, if you and an opponent try to melee each other at the same time, you’ll only win if you have a “sizeable health advantage” over the other person. Otherwise, you both die. I guess this does even things up a bit, considering it gives the host less of an advantage. Bungie has posted all the nitty gritty details about how the change works, including specific hit point numbers and why a system of “who hits first, wins” just doesn’t work on their forums, which you can check out through the link below.
