              The astute observer may note that the pair of Arena playlists aren’t set to go live when the clock strikes midnight. In the interest of fairness, we’ve decided that the inaugural season won’t begin until 11am PDT on 09/14. If you fancy yourself the competitive type, take the extra lead time to get the lead out in some of the other playlists.

              And of course, just like our previous Xbox LIVE outings; these are merely the day one sets. We can and will change things up to keep the experience fresh. If there are a few obvious omissions that you expected to be on hand immediately, you’ll likely find them online at a later date. Launch demands we keep things nice and tight until we confirm that the initial population explosion won’t sink the whole ship in one shot.

              And while we’re on the subject of previous Halo titles and playlist updates, I should clear up a few misconceptions that I’m seeing circulating in the community regarding Halo 3.

              Contrary to my own ill-spoken words, Jeremiah informs me that our Double EXP playlists for Halo 3 aren’t going to be culled straight away (though they won’t be a permanent fixture in the Halo: Reach aftermath). We are, however, planning on cutting some fat, leaving only the succulent bits of the Halo 3 online experience behind for those opting to stick around and suck every last bit of the marrow as the majority migrates to the new hotness.

              Presently, that means Squad Battle and Basic Training are no more and that you should steel yourselves for more cuts in the weeks and months ahead. Don’t worry though; we’ll make sure we always support game types and maps required for earning your Halo 3 ‘chievos. We expect plenty of people to keep on keepin’ on and we’ll do our best to make sure the online experience remains nice and solid.

              Back on the Halo: Reach front, Sketch has a few words to offer on the security tip.
              "Dearest Fans – After years of waiting, Reach is finally nearly upon us. Some of you may even already be playing, courtesy of an eager retail store that couldn’t wait until next Tuesday. But for the vast majority of you, we still have a few official days left and you’re patiently waiting, finger on the trigger.

              Here at Bungie, we’re patiently waiting as well, but our finger is on a different trigger. Our team is standing at the ready behind the sights of our fully operational Banhammer Battlestation. We take the Reach online experience VERY seriously. Bungie has invested years of hard work creating a game that we want our fans to enjoy for years to come and we have zero tolerance for people who try and ruin that experience for others. The Xbox LIVE team also takes these matters very seriously and they too are aggressively taking action as needed. Modifying your console or the game itself is a violation of the terms of use for LIVE and Reach and will result in potentially severe penalties.

              We are already aware of a number of nefarious deeds by a very small percentage of early adopters and we have already been taking action. We expect that a few more will turn up once the population explodes on September 14th. We will be ready, watching, waiting, firing at will on people who deserve it. We have all sorts of new fancy tools at our disposal now and as we start to come up to full speed we’ll be engaging all of them. Voice bans, host bans, console bans, gamertag bans, credit bans and the automatic habitual quitter penalty are but a few of our sharply honed weapons hungering for blood.

              Please note that you may not always see immediate results. Sometimes it takes a little while, other times we elect to wait and gather data as to be 100% certain we’re not overreacting to false positive data. And still other times we may decide to escalate it to the security team at Xbox LIVE for an even greater ass-kicking. Rest assured though that Bungie is watching and we know who you are and what you’re doing.

              To all of our fans who have been such big supporters of Bungie

              (Tyson also dropped by and wanted us to inform everyone that the Credit wipe we told you about last week has been initiated and that if you've gotten a hold of a legitimate, legally obtained copy of Halo: Reach, please feel free to fire it up and play.)
