Let me hear you sound off
Let them know how you feel

Since nobody seems to read this part it's time to engage the caps lock.
I AM TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE THAT PLAY AS SPARTAN OR ELITE PLAYER MODELS MIXING ON THE SAME TEAM, I DON'T WANT THE ENEMY TEAM TO CHANGE AND CONSIST SOLELY OF HUMANS, NOR YOUR TEAM CONSISTING OF SOLELY ELITES/ALIENS.
I JUST WANT SPARTAN AND ELITE PLAYERS TO BE ABLE TO MIX AND BE ON THE SAME TEAM LIKE THEY CAN ON HALO 2 AND HALO 3.
I DO NOT CARE WHETHER OR NOT IT MAKE SENSE HAVING ELITES KILLING OTHER ELITES AND SIDING WITH SPARTANS, AS FIREFIGHT IS NON-CANON ANYWAY. THAT IS ALL.
If the above still hasn't explained it for you, read the rest of the original post below (which I'm too lazy and/or annoyed to edit).
I am aware that we will be fighting Elites in the new Firefight but that shouldn't matter, as in Halo 2 we were playing as Elites killing other Elites.
This could be done simply by selecting the Elite player model as your preferred species. I suppose if players also didn't want this they could toggle the option to allow Elites only, Spartans only, or mixed, in the options for that gamemode.
It seems Firefight mode is non-canon anyway, and in Halo 2 the Covenant and UNSC were enemies for the majority of the game but Spartans and Elites were allowed to be on the same teams in multiplayer, so why not here?
