  1. Ya im not sure what it is about ce but once you get a rank in the 20s you start getting matched up with people shots dont register correctly on. That killed the game for me, because I don't ever feel like the advantage swings in my favor. Its possible its my connection but its good for all other online games ive played so that doesn't make sense to me.
  2. He said it backwards then. In Halo CE magnetism is the curving of bullets, and aim assist is reticle stickiness. Doesn't make sense for termonology to be oppossite now......
  3. Back ordered means out of stock and waiting on a shipment from their suppliers.....sorry bro
  4. I completely agree with the person that said the halo pc elitist view is rockets and power up timing is newb. In fact all of the pro labeled servers I joined had rockets and power ups disabled where you cant even pick them up standing on them........
  5. Only way the pro xbox community would play it is if you can hook your controller up and have bullet magnetism/w slight aim assist like on the xbox. A very low percent will want to relearn how to play a game they have been playing for 15 years on a mouse and keyboard. However right before mcc came out I played halo pc custom edition with a controller using a keyboard/mouse mapping program running in the background. That along with the combination of turning on player_magnetism 1 and playing on the no lead modded servers felt pretty damn good. It felt much better then halo pc ever felt to me the numerous times I have downloaded it and tried it the past 12 years.
  6. I couldnt agree more about the distance thing snipe three. I loved ctf bg back in the day but that was on og xbox when the pistol worked correctly. I could sit up at the canyons above red base and 3 or 4 shot people on spawn consistantly. Now in mcc it takes like a whole clip to get one kill on a spawner from that distance. I dont understand why but mcc pistol is way easier then og on close up and mid range battles, but way harder and less consistent then og in long range battles.
  7. Does it still give you better or worse hit registration based off your teamates's connection?
  8. Man that chill out looked like it should of been a draw, I mean how could he kill you after hes already dead? Im pretty sure that was somehow a high ping issue, either way good game.
  9. Is it possible they set up their routers to only allow a connection to a certain ip address, one that they controlled? Because that clip is of 2 guys not playing obviously.
  10. Sounds good on paper but in reality it will lead to more dodging, more quitting, and more frustration for both ce players and h2/h3 players. Just look at the frustration ce being in big team battle causes with all the betrayals and quitting. Also putting halo ce as the left selection makes it where h1 players can get 50s while playing no other games which rules out your questions/points. I have no desire to play anything but H1, it being on XBL for the first time is the sole reason I bought an Xbone.
  11. This is a very bad idea because at least half of the competitive players in the halo ce playlist only play halo ce. The later games are so different having them in the same playlist just doesnt make sense and would really piss off the of the majority of the current doubles players. It would limit them in moving up ranks because to compete in h1's list you have to have a lot of halo ce specific game knowledge like knowing spawns, timing weapons, and grenading weapons to yourself. These things took a long time to learn and I seriously doubt many people in the doubles playlist would want to take the time to learn all of it.
  12. Perfect means game is smooth as butter bullets hit exactly when I think they are going to, rockets kill people when they should, and no one is twitching/skipping. I am realistic and realize that my example of perfect does not equal orginal....but half my games are completely acceptable to me. The problem lies in the other half of my games and last 2 nights I keep getting the same laggy people 2 to 3 games in a row and just quit early and go to bed. If they would just make ping and lag a disadvantage it would solve majority of the bs. I truly think some people are making the game lag on purpose.
  13. If it has to be hitscan to be consistant then do that all I want is consistant gameplay from one game to the next. 50% games feel perfect, 20% feel like I get too much bullet correction and 30% feel like I get almost no asistance at all and bullets are actually being redirected away from the target.
  14. I read somewhere that some people's negative feedback does a lot more then others. Like if you report people a lot yours will not do much, but if you dont report people often they will be more effective when you do. Also I got all of mine in one night, that may be important too, I'm not sure.
  15. I blocked them back when it did matter and as I said earler eating bullets that should hit you is a form of cheating whether it is intentional or not. There is no way to know if someone is doing it on purpose or not, so there is nothing wrong with blocking/reporting players like that. I just looked at my rep from the night I went from green to red because of streaming and it does seem like it takes you down way to fast...I only had 3 reports.
  16. No there is like 4 or 5 people in the halo 1 community that ghost through perfect shots that should hit them. It has nothing to do with host it doesnt matter if you play them in matchmaking or in customs they eat your bullets and thier shots are unaffected by this type of lag. I have those 4 or 5 people blocked, its pretty rare and its always the same people. 90% of games run perfectly acceptable in the halo 1 playlist for me.
  17. Just as the guy said earlier he is high level in many playlists and has 0 negative reports. I never block anyone for being good. Eating bullets that should hit you is a form of cheating whether its intential or not (there is no way to know if people are doing it on purpose or not). You have been blocked by me 6 months before the h1 playlist even got ranked because of constantly being a douche/butthole via messages and chat. I know slim and 50 send a lot of messages telling people they are trash and stuff too. Have you ever thought maybe your attitude is getting you bad rep and not your skills? On a different note I got my net upgraded awhile back from 1.5mb up to 2.2mb up which is the highest I can get in my area. So I decided to try streaming again, aparently I was eating bullets even though my shots where unaffected and I was wrecking people. I went from green rep to avoid me in one night of streaming. To me that is a very good thing because if not for the rep system all people would have to do is cap their upload at 2.2mb, throw up a stream and lag their way through the ranked playlists.....
  18. No that is wrong people block saruh and soulja and thebo and others because shots don't register on them correctly. These people I have mentioned constantly 3 shot at you, but yet when shooting at them bullets just go right through them like shooting at a ghost or something. I have them blocked just for that reason because it ruins my XBL expierence to have people constantly eating bullets yet shooting at me just fine.
  19. Unfortunately I think a lot of people are giving up on it. Im only a 25 and the nights I play it I keep getting the same 3 teams all night (all people in the 30s or 40s). A month ago most nights I wouldn't play the same team in an entire night. I wish people would start playing 2v2 customs series at night again, a lot more people played consistently then.
  20. They have to have it turned on too. If no one on the other team has it turned on you wont hear anyone having yours turned on. At least that is how it worked last time mine was on around 5 months ago.
  21. One problem I have is when I watch pink hallway from top PR in chillout with rockets somebody will go around corner with sniper and headshot me and my rocket will act like it fires but it doesn't. So now that guy has camo rocks and control of the map. All my years of lan and even in 100 ping xbc the rocket always fires and kills the guy even if he does get a lucky headshot on me. An new issue with rockets this patch is it is near impossible to hit someone above you on a skinny ledge (like top powerup on hh) with rockets. Last night so many shots that I lined up to hit the ledge just shot off to the ceiling, I guess magnetism is changing the path of the rockets. They are supposed to fire straight where you aim with zero magnetism.
  22. Too easy shooting drasticly changes the flow of the game and makes it not feel like Halo 1. When you have everyone and their brother playing with the super agressive playstyle that only very few people such as harris, legend, Jownz, and few others could pull off in og its not really fun. It makes you have to learn to play that way too or get raped by people that do. The slower more passive smart playstlye feels worthless in MCC even though it works just fine in og.
  23. My initial feel is they just reverted back to what it was before. Im not going to jump the gun though ill do my due diligence and test it out for a few nights first. Insidious im a halo purist and to me the game played closer to the orginal with the harder pistol. Strafing was back and was fun and sniping felt perfect it actually took skill like og did. Anyways gonna go play some more and try to form an educated opinion for this patch.
  24. But specifically with this patch what makes hh and pris feel so bad on host is you are constantly using your pistol in these two maps. Snipers are not within easy grabbing range like on dammy and co. Also you spawn in the open and have to fight people pretty soon after you spawn, where with dammy and co you can spawn in a room by yourself giving you time to get a different weapon and prepare.
  25. I think it feels this way because hh and pris are so dependent on your pistol, you spawn in the open and are forced to fight on spawn more then other maps. Pretty much what it comes down to is host pistol sucks and is at a pretty large disadvantage to off host pistol.
