  1. Alright forum users - it's another Halo weekend. You know the deal. Only post the absolute shittiest and most dank memes possible. Anything subpar will be deleted and you will be disciplined with a large amount of internet force. You have all been warned.
  2. One thing I noticed from this, that hopefully is a positive sign of the original engine/version that is running, is the detail in the floors, walls, etc. 21:36 in the video shows a very good example of this on the floors, ceilings, and walls. This detail was covered in a YouTube video by LateNightGaming Hopefully this is a sign that the original version is running with as close to its original coding as possible.
  3. I am all for the addition of Assault - it's always been one of my favorite gametypes but one I also believe, given the right game i.e. Halo 2 (Midship Bomb), that requires a high level of team coordination to succeed in and thus makes for a great competitive gametype. My overall hope is that the professional players are not only open to changes but participate and give feedback. That and 343 coordinates to make the changes occur.
  4. @Boyo You got it - was thinking of Sanctum. It's too bad if the grenades sticking are the issue because that makes it essentially unplayable unless 343 made changes/fixes to it.
  5. A little off topic from the KBM discussion - which is a mess if it's currently putting someone at a disadvantage (maybe don't hold these events on a pre-release version of the game 343?) Anyway, does anyone remember the forge versions of Sanctuary which used the actual forge world ground/terrain and came extremely close to the true angles/design of the original Sanctuary? I would love to replace the current/MLG Sanctuary with that version if possible. I know framerate was an issue but I believe there was another issue with it as well but can't recall. If the issues are fixed/a non issue being on PC, I would love to see that change happen.
  6. With TI4 having me playing more and more Dota 2 - I figured there should be an official thread for it since there has never really been one before. For anyone looking to get into Dota 2 - here are some very helpful websites and pages to visit. DotaBuff "Welcome to Dota, You Suck" - Purge Dota 2 - Official Website FAQ - Dota 2 Subreddit Purge Gamers - YouTube Discuss anything and everything Dota 2 here - go!
  7. Incredible. When players are still finding things to do in the game more than 10 years later, you know you have created something special. Well done guys.
  8. That CLG vs Noble Black match is absolutely legendary. I attended the event and the crowd was fantastic all weekend long - and the location of the stage in the venue lend itself to a lot of people having to walk past the stage to maneuver through the rest of the venue, thus being able to easily stop to see what all the hype was about - combine that with H2A being a great game, even with the MCC issues at the time - and you get the HCS Season 1 finals. That event seems easily forgotten but was easily one of the best in the post-MLG Halo years.
  9. What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo. Oh, and I'm 6'4 and fully fucking tatted.
  10. 343. Please. This would be my quick scenario/dream if a Halo 2 tournament were to be put on now in some capacity (would of course love to see more prize money but again - maybe not worth investment) - with a few minor changes given the current tournament climate/present changes that have been made to tournaments (i.e. Oddball time in H3 being reduced, length of tournaments/series hence the BO7 vs BO11). I would of course be in favor of an open tournament any day but I wouldn't be confident in it being worth the investment.
  11. I would donate (a small amount) to make that Tour de Walsh side station possible. I could watch Halo 2 be played forever. I still hope for one Halo 2 4v4 tournament before Infinite releases - whether classic or on MCC (Disclaimer - MCC Halo 2 is a horrible PC port compared to classic but would be better than nothing). I know that is a far and away dream but I'll never let go. No one can make me let go.
  12. I just picked up a beautiful 24 inch Sony Trinitron CRT just waiting for its first appearance at a classic Halo LAN. Not a matter of if, but when.
  13. Random Monday Halo thought: People went bananas when Shotzzy/Splyce used the Staples "Easy" button at the Halo 5 World Championships last year Let's not forget who originally brought that prop into competitive Halo. The one and only
  14. The "next" tournament is just a rumor as of right now - Dreamhack Atlanta in November https://dreamhack.com/atlanta/
  15. Finals in the Game 7 peaked at just about 4,200 - was mid 3,000s up until the Game 7. Numbers climbed throughout the series.
  16. If PC means true LAN and better overall game performance - which it of course should - I am all for it. Sort out the peripherals and I think you have something there.
  17. Lets say UGC elects to do Reach on PC - is that K&M or controllers? Player preference on peripherals? I'm asking that as a legit question for discussion. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people would not want to use K&M for numerous reasons - not used to it/don't play on PC, hold the viewpoint that controller is the way the game was meant to be played - can go on from this of course.
  18. So now that we have a few months before another event... IF it ever gets released...(yes I said if given how long its currently taking) Next event NBNS Reach? I'm all for it personally. I love H3 but NBNS Reach had no time to shine outside of the one standalone MLG event and the smaller not-to-be-named events after and would be a great change of pace for the rest of the grassroots duration.
  19. Big shoutout to UGC for another great event and really carrying the grassroots scene - keeping the open events alive. Open events are the foundation of console games and should never die, especially for classic Halo. UGC has come from the ground up to be where they are now and for how they have supported the game they have my complete respect.
