Halo 1's entire campaign is the same thing played through twice but you go the other way and it has Flood.

Not that I care too much because I have had more fun playing that than most other games ever.


I find it quite funny how even for the levels that don’t have duplicates, you essentially have to back track or repeat a large amount of it.

Pillar of Autumn - The Maw
Truth and Reconciliation - Keyes
Assault on the Control Room - Two Betrayals

Silent Cartographer - loop around the island multiple times, go down and back up the command center
343 Guilty Spark - go in and then back out of the compound (it’s own mirrored level)
The Library - self explanatory how repetitive it is

Halo is the only level that doesn’t really fit the mold. I guess you have to save 4 lots of marines but they are in all different areas.

idk what they were thinking with H5's story. No idea. Lots of great opportunities to build of established shit in a clear, linear "this makes actual sense" kind of way and instead they hit a nasty hook into the trees with zombie cortana, the same repeating boss, anticlimactic Locke vs. Chief battle that you can't even play, Guardians that have no real feel of heft or consequence, the worst reason EVER to even declare Chief AWOL in the first place, etc etc etc. ugh


Can you imagine if they went with a plot like Captain America: Civil War?

Master Chief: Captain America
Cortana: Winter Soldier
Warden: Zemo
Locke: Iron Man
Arbiter: Black Panther
Jul M’dama: Crossbones
Blue Team: Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Ant Man, Falcon
Fire team Osiris: Black Widow, Iron Patriot, Vision, Spider-Man

Then you could have some awesome boss fights which you can control and it also gives meaning for character decisions. 4v4 in a mission between Osiris and Blue Team like Civil Wars airport battle.

A Locke v Chief 1v1 at the end where Locke is trying to get Cortana from Chiefs head because she “caused” Locke’s home world to be destroyed by a Guardian. Chief is trying to convince otherwise and save Cortana because she has been manipulated by the Warden, and is the only way to stop the Guardians from wreaking more havoc.

Eh I just had a long day at work and it seemed like an effective yet dark metaphor.


Reminds me of “rearranging deckchairs on the Titanic”.

But in this case, the Halo 5 ship is already sinking because it has collided with the Iceberg-sized problem that is Sprint.

But in all seriousness I cant wait to see what teams form.

Which teams do you think are going to make changes?


Renegades most likely I think.

Splyce won’t because they won, Tox won’t because they can still be the best again and the updated settings will probably play in their favour.

NV can take games off Splyce consistently and almost knocked out Tox to get to Grand Finals so they are close to top 2. Reciprocity might be changing, but they know that they can play better and are able to beat Tox which is their main goal.

I think the big problem with the lack of any new maps being added is that the Post launch maps failed for one reason.

Sight lines across the map.

Symmetry is a big part of a good map, but if you can see and shoot cross map from a lot of places, it makes it great competitively. Truth and Coliseum work. Rig and Plaza work although they are asymmetrical. Empire, Regret, and Fathom have symmetry but not a lot of sightlines that’s why they are only used for one game type each.

Of the post launch maps, Overgrowth, Riptide, Tyrant, and Molten have almost no cross map sight lines.
Torque, Stasis and Mercy have a few, but if you aren’t up high then you are shit out of luck.

Smh people saying Splyce > Final Boss when Splyce hasn't even won a tournament without AR starts.


Who’s saying that? Also AR starts haven’t been in the game for a year. Splyce have only won tournaments where there have been no ARs. Did you mess up your sentence?

Clutch is hilarious. GB Lethal and Wonderboy talking about the most exciting Winners Bracket Rd1 matchup and Clutch just says none of them are exciting. “We know who the top 4 is”. Savage.

For sure, there is no flash from the thrusters and Kimbo lunged forward.


You can also see Spartan thrust backwards after hitting the wall. Which means he didn’t use his thrusters during the lunge. I wonder if Spartan jumping at that exact time caused the lunge with no connection just like a sword bounce in Halo 2?

I wish all teams from the pool made it out into the bracket and their placings just determined where they are in it.


If 3rd place teams in pool play get eliminated that is harsh I think. They should set it up like Champs in 2017:

Top 2 in pools go to Champ Bracket
3rd goes straight to Elim Bracket Round 1 (awaiting the losers of Champ rd1)
4th in pool gets immediately eliminated.
