The Halo Community is comprised of a diverse group of fans who find many different aspects of the franchise to call home. Whether it’s the lore of the universe, or the competitive nature of multiplayer, or the creativeness of the Forge tools, or any other many smaller communities, there has always been a special bond, comradery if you will, of Halo fans supporting one another. The Halo community has not been without it’s highs and lows and in more recent years has been unfortunately turbulent. A recent event called into question some Halo YouTubers and Community Influencers’ impact on the development of Halo and 343’s treatment of the franchise. As someone who has been in the community for a significant amount of time, we felt it necessary to address some of these issues that has plagued the community for far to long.
