Halo 3's First Update.

Bob Zippers, always dancing around...

Frustrated with the melee system in Halo 3? Fear not Bungie's has 'fixed' it and the update is set to go live in the next few weeks.

The way that melee works now is that if two players melee each other at the 'same' time, the player with more health wins. In this system the player with the least health dies, even if he strikes a millisecond sooner. In my opinion, the current system is good, Bungie just needs to adjust what's defined as "at the same time" maybe close the gap a bit. This new 'fix' is going back toward the old style where if two players have low health and they melee each other, they both die. People will bitch either way, so it's a lose-lose for Bungie, but I think I'll like this new way better.

Also, a new Best Of Forge playlist will be coming around the same time as the update. This playlist will highlight some of the best Forged maps from around the community.
