I never got the draw to the flames. It's like "Here I am! Shoot me!" I suppose there's the fun in collecting it. Maybe I'll download the Bungie app to my wife's iPod so I can have the flames for later if I want. Can I turn it off?

Yeah it's like any other armor effect, you can select it in the armory.

I'll probably just wear them til bungie day. I agree with Tean on them being a huge target. I might put them on now and then though.

I'm only using them right now to show support for Bungie's last days of Halo. Also, I just like having completed armor, except for the few things I have left to buy (Gungnir/Security Helmet upgrades, All Robot Arms, Carter's Firefight voice, Pestilence, Heart Attack, and Inclement Weather).

You were most likely not the first in the world, and Fusion has LIVE and doesn't play 24/7. He's also way up there in the skill levels, trust me. It's kind of frustrating when you would probably be in silver if you actively played arena and then all of a sudden start playing with someone who would probably be in Onyx.

Uhhh...I'm not really that good. I only have a 1.03 K/D and my Arena ranking is usually only High Silver/Low Gold level.

As for being first in the world, using the offline scaling hardly counts. At that point, Live users couldn't even get up to the high ranks due to a daily credit limit of 60,000 and not being able to rank up past Lt. Colonel. Technically, the Jtaggers were the first ones to be Inheritors. Also, seeing as people without Live generally can't be checked on, we have no way to know that you were really the first in that group. Also, SaviourSoul was the first Live Inheritor, but seeing as he and his friends screwed up and did Firefight Idling he was credit reset down to Recruit. There are a couple legitimate Inheritors on Live now, but at this point it's impossible to tell who was first, due to most being reset around the time they all starting hitting it.

I have the blue flames, but I don't wear them. I've been trying to keep a classic look to my armor, being complete Mk. V and being only one color. I just like the simple things to show my appreciation for Halo and Bungie in general.

Actually i was the first, and i didnt play 24/7 also. My quoted post was done on april 7th, in april 11th, the first guy with XBL got the rank too... But anyways, haveing a rank like that is pointless, that doesnt prooves the player´s skills...

Oh, BTW, happy Bungie Day!

What he's saying is that lots of other non-Live players probably had the rank as well.
