Halo Double Experience Weekends, a revelation, or a curse?

Halo Double Experience Weekends

When the first double experience occurred it helped revive the ailing community of Halo 3. Average players were getting tired of the common actions of trolling players tea-bagging and talking trash. The idea behind it was simple; Have a special playlist only for the weekend where things were new and fresh. An added benefit to entice players to participate was the fact of giving double experience hence the name of the event. It was a big success and gave veteran players a new thing to explore.

However, double experience weekends were a victim of their own success. Bungie saw the benefits and soon had a double experience every week. This would have been ok if each week there was a new type of play, but the scale of making a new playlist every week could not be accomplished, even by Bungie. This caused a rotation of about 5-6 weekends. Now the double experience weekends have become routine, and some of the excitement has been lost. Another problem is the double experience. It gives a false impression of players skill in normal playlists. The damage was confined to social playlists for awhile. But now Bungie throws in ranked double experience weekends those warping experience totals in both sides of play. Hopefully Bungie will get the hint, and do something about this growing problem.
