You guys seem to be missing the point. I hate to agree with Ring here, but the question isn't what here, it's why.

Why did they change the color? This isn't a graphics update like we've seen in past games. What possible reason do they have to change the colors? Because name one, just one, legitimate reason, and I'll stop caring.

But at this point, it comes across as intentionally pissing on hardcore fans. Covenant tech has always been a mix of blues and purples. Pretty much all vehicles, guns, and structures have been very clearly purple. Changing this for no reason comes across as unnecessary, silly, and frankly, a waste of resources. And with no gain at all, it seems like a dumb move.

Why piss off a small portion of the fans if you aren't even appealinng to another group within the fanbase?

It's blue because it's forerunner. Their tech has always been a mix of gray and blue.

Frankie made it clear this was linked the Legendary ending of Halo 3 which was also forerunner.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Covenant.

WHAT ARE WE EVEN TALKING ABOUT HERE?!

I honestly don't know. We haven't seen the Covenant in H4. I don't even know where this "We'll be using less purple" came from, and what it applies to.

Can someone fill me and NT in?
Yeah, NT, because if Rot is going to be siding with one of his mortal enemies, I'm going to side with someone I wouldn't shake hands with, without a thick pair of rubber gloves.

guys... the whole reason the colors have been changed is simply because they are using the reach engine now... the color pallettes in every game were different. Now they are just using the same one for a previous game.


and you know what? it doesn't matter in the slightest

This thread is much bigger than I thought it would be...

Btw, I don't think the humans even have an "army" anymore. I'm pretty sure they're just all navy or marines.

Army Troopers exist in Halo Reach, but from a front end, no one really knows the difference. when the army is around theres just like no talking at all pretty much. thats it.

Honestly, if you add the HUD to the bottom one it's the same.

Yah... they look pretty much the same. The second one just has a lot more detail and no shinguards or hud. Oh, and the shoulder guards were reshaped a little.

I haven't seen any of the trailers yet, because I've been too busy waiting in line for TOR, but from my understanding, things like Covenant ships are now blue. That was not the case in Halo: Reach, so I'm not buying this as a graphics update.

To my knowledge, this debate is regarding the Covenant in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. But, as I said, I've not had a chance to watch the trailer, so I can't really be the judge.

However, given past indiscretions of 343, I would be entirely unsurprised if they changed something as iconic as the color of the Covenant for no reason whatsoever.

Meh... Halo seems to have been heading that way anyway. Like I said, I'll be verry happy if changing purple to blue is the worst part of the next few Halo games.

Alright, I got a brief look at some trailers, and I'm with Rasq now. What exactly was changed to blue? Halo Anniversary seemed to feature plenty of purple, and Halo 4 doesn't necessarily feature Covenant at all.

is this reference to the Halo Marines and Halo Army looking the same?

because using the two from the same game, like this:

Blue vs Purple - Page 3 640px-Unscmarine_sniper

Blue vs Purple - Page 3 270px-Halo_Reach_-_UNSC_Army_Infantryman_%28Standing%29

now can you easily tell which is which?

do you even happen to know what missions have Army Troopers and which have Marines?

The biggest reason why they shouldn't change the Marines to Army (aside from the fact I'm a Marine) is that it made sense for Marines to be there. Not so much the Army. It was a ship, with a infantry force comprised almost entirely for the purpose of defending itself and attacking other ships. That is the Marine Corps main role, historically, and in many many sci fi stories.

Plus the Master Chief is Navy. The Navy does almost nothing with the Army whatsoever. Navy personnel are constantly embedded in the Fleet Marine Force.

what about the part at the end of Reach with the 2 Marines with the eye peaces?

i would say the armor we saw at the end of Reach from the Marines at the ship breaking yard was some sort of EVA suit.
