Is it not still in beta. Really cosmetic jank is todays crack for most of you. Call me in 3 months and lets see how it all shape out. Since this is their first F2P, I am sure they will find the right balance but then again, its not like the variety in Halo MP for cosmetic is great to begin with. As long as they keep the gameplay fun and engaging, the fluff stuff can be sorted whenever.
Eeeh ... I'd rather 343 give me meaningful progression instead of trying to ram a pink unicorn gun skin in my ass.
