Halo 4 Unlocking Six Specialization HELP!?!?!?

    • Level   5

    Ok my Rank is SR70 and I can't pick anymore specialization right? I just wondering that I'm a "Silver Member" and I play halo 4 before Nov. 20 with a XBL 14 gold trail can I still get the specialization code on my email account or Xbox Live account gamertag if I'm a Silver Member? Note: I use two Xbox Live 14 gold trails during halo 4 launch day on Nov. 6

    You’ll get 500 credits for each of your friends who join and reach Silver Status, up to a maximum of 100 friends.*

    anyone who played the online from launch till the end of the 20th is entitled to that code, if you were not an LE owner.

    -

    You will be emailed the code when they start issuing them...being silver should not stop that but being silver will stop you playing online unless you use more trial codes or upgrade to Gold

    Yes I am a criminal. My Crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    Hiya. It's the 21st, and it was my general assumption that the codes would start being handed out on the 20th. Are they being handed out and they just haven't gotten to me, or will they just instantly give it to everyone when they're ready? Was the 20th just like.. play before then and you're eligible, or was it actually the date they'll give you the stuff too?

    I assume you didn't read the fine print on the posting about getting the emailed code for playing Halo 4 online before the 20th to receive the 6 other specializations.

    No problem its a simple mistake and its obvious not many people actually looked at the fine print, LOL then again its like reading a game or electronics manual, who does right? lol, well I always do so....Please allow me to explain this matter further to you so that it may hopefully clarify this issue.

    Now we all know limited edition buyers like myself got a DLC exclusive code to see 6 extra specializations on-top of the original 2 standard users are only able to see for the time being. But us Limited Edition buyers still had to rank up to be allowed to choose 1 out of the 8 instead. As where Standard Editions only got to choose between 2 at the time.

    Now, Shortly before the Launch of HALO 4 Microsoft and 343i released a news update on the Xbox dashboard. The one you are in question about. The tab you are talking about said if  you play Halo 4 WAR GAMES matchmaking online anytime between the November 6th and the 20th of November you will unlock the other additional 6 Specializations for Halo 4 bringing the total to 8 choices rather than 2.

    HOWEVER, what most people like yourself missed was the small print beneath the message on the tab. If you would have read this you would understand why you have yet to receive the content code for the specializations.

    THE CODES WERE NOT GOING TO BE RELEASED ON THE 20th OF NOVEMBER,

    The codes are to be released on November 30th by email containing a code for the 6 Specializations.This delay rather than being instant is to allow 343i and Xbox to gather the amount of Standard edition users emails and gamer-tags who participated in this promotion. After that they will then send the codes VIA email for you.

    Below I have copied and pasted the exact words from the Tab about receiving the code and this promotion:

    You must play Halo 4 SE by 11:59 p.m. EST on November 20. After that, "A download code will be sent to the email address associated with your Xbox LIVE account by November 30, 2012."

    Hopefully this clears things up and will get rid of any confusion, Any questions you can message me on XBL, my GT is VAUZIX. Hope I was able to clarify and help out. :laughing:

    my question is will our xp be reflected after the 6 come out. im a 68 and when i hit 70 will i stop acrewing xp or will it be added after i get the code?

    • Level   4

    Once you have the ability to pick another Specialisation you will start levelling up, but until you cant earn XP as you have maxed out

    Yes I am a criminal. My Crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    Very much appreciated.

    What they are doing is stupid. For anyone who is already 70 and doesn't have limited edition there is no point in playing until new specializations are out. It's really an unfair advantage they should all be available to everybody. Its like you paid $60 for a trial.

    everyone failed to notice that the fine print also said you had to be 17 or older to participate in the promotion  lol pretty much anyone under wont recieve it unless they have a parent account linked .

    so we are  just playing untill we reach the final rank? we no longer play for fun and to play with friends? gees what happened to the online competition on theese forums?

    Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there. I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die.

    i personally dont care for rank but it would be nice to have  a system where you cant reach the max in the first week thats the only bad part about h4. you dont need to try to rank up ive had whole teams quit about before the match starts and i still get the same ammount of xp that i would get for trying my best. i miss halo 3s ranking

    • Level   2

    Halo 3s ranking sucked. Reaches xp progression was entirely too slow. Halo 4 is perfect.

    Ok, so does anyone know what email they are sending the download code to exactly though? I have one email which I use to recover my gamertag, (my windows live id), and then when i go to contact information under the "my account" section of the xbox website, the email is different and its one I can no longer access. When I logged onto my xbox live account on my xbox though, the email is the one i use to recover the account on different xbox's. Can anyone please clarify for me? Id hate to miss out on the specializations for such a dumb mistake.
