Who is that and what the hell is a "Forge Council Member"

Halo: CE

There are things about Forge that even Hierarchs do not understand.

She said that to me once, about being a machine

I know they were a big forger in H5, not sure about previous titles and I think the council is basically 343's favourite forgers who have presumably been part of the private forge flights

I literally imagine them sitting around in those Elite armor sets with the big ass heads debating forge stuff, with 3 dressed as Prophets.

343i could easily say” Forge will not be monetized.”

And I’ll leave it at that.

Right next to "millions of customization options on day one," and "the only BR we are interested in is the battle rifle."

Remember when 343 said they won't lean on FOMO? (the game is riddled with predatory by-design macro transaction schemes)

Remember when the lead sandbox designer said he felt really good about the amount of content infinite is launching with and the content coming soon after launch? (the game was the most hollow halo content launch with the worse post-launch support)

Remember when 343 said the challenges would just be supplementary and not the primary way to make progress? (challenges are the ONLY way to make any kind of progress unless you just straight up buy cosmetics)

Remember when 343 said if you unlock something from the battle pass they weren't going to let someone circumvent that unlock by purchasing it from the storefront? (Jimmy can just buy credits till he has enough to bypass the whole battle pass)

Remember when 343 said they want to respect players' time and not make infinite feel like a job or a chore? (the challenge system is literally just a time gate to artificially force engagement metrics through FOMO-based events instead of organically having a community engagement)

Remember when 343 said that they have a large amount of completely free cosmetics for people to unlock like traditional unlock paths through achievements and leveling? (over 95 percent of infinite's customization options require real money to acquire)

Remember when 343 said they learned from the mistakes of MCC and halo 5? (the executive management dropped the ball AGAIN on shit like co-op, custom games browser, theater, customs themselves, launch modes and maps, and their hiring practices that lead to broken and messed up development)

There are more, but this has to be the company record of most things lied about to hype up a Halo release. They just said everything we wanted to hear to drive up day one download numbers and maximize short-term income. They flat out lied about so many things so I don't trust anyone connected to 343 or any high-up community member when they say something won't be monetized. Not until the business drunk executives are gone from that company or if 343 can prove these learned/changed.
