  1. everyone of them almost exactly the same - just painted differently (this is a good thing btw)
  2. He said more in this video than in all his Halo interviews combined, the power of player training and a good talent lead - good luck to the guy.
  3. Unfortunately its becoming the norm, Destiny 2 paved the way with how easy it is to tank on PC players with a controller and now Fortnite/Cross platform is making it easy for anyone to play anybody without barriers.
  4. That's because controller aim assist or bullet mag in apex legends is INSANE late game, you can just hold the trigger down on any automatic gun close combat and rail players without a care in the world. Its also so many people play controller in Destiny 2 - its too OP not to. While I've always been on the side of PC players/mouse and keyboard will absolutely slap the shit out of controller users, if the controllers are overpowered and viable then you will see good console players perform very well. Early game as example snipedown will get battered at range because people sniping with M&K are just too damn good, but if his 2 PC users are sick and work as a team and get him to the end game/late game with a full auto its easy mode. Lets not take anything away from the skill console players have on the sticks, but M&K will cut them in 2 unless the aim assist/bullet mag is weighed heavy in their favour (fortshite also does this). Expect this to be the future and cross platform designed to be accessible and playable, hybrid teams (while only a few) of controllers and K&M will become the norm.
  5. First bit of emotion we’ve seen from a winning team in a good few years...
  6. Unfortunately not, all i can say is that if there is ever any future ESL activations in Halo I personally will most likely be playing a larger role in them and i’ll be doing my best to ensure mistakes are not repeated.
  7. Was reading on twitter that some of the MLG staff had been offered freelancer roles/contracts working on CDL directly so maybe we see the core team stick together and port over to work on Call Of Duty? I wonder if CDL comes under the MLG banner or is its own entity like OWL? Things have changed a hell of a lot and lessons have been learned.
  8. Yeah to my knowledge hosting does absolutely nothing unless you already have viewers to send with it, i'm 99% sure if you host a channel while you're offline none of your followers see it nor get a notification about it.
  9. ironically 30 new titles of COD is exactly how many will have come and gone by the time infinite gets here...
  10. With all due respect we see these tweets with every cod launch, alongside cod players tweeting the ''this will be the best cod ever''. Remake, Release, Rinse, Repeat. (yearly)
  11. Again there will always be a huge gap between grassroots and actual HCS events, ones an event with 343 help and support the others an actual HCS developer paid event. All the DH before have been official HCS events and i'm sure ESA was also one too as it was fed teams from pro league (ESA also has the huge advantage that they have there own LAN premises with everything inside already rigged up and ready to go). I dunno, i'm not trying to justify it btw, just trying to expand on why these events will be so different from the past ones. HCS 2016 was also basically Xbox's baby and Halo 5's birthday present rolled into one with all the funding in the world, i think they will absolutely do the same for Infinite.
  12. Playing devils advocate here, not saying there is a right or wrong nor any of this been a fact, just my persoanl POV to maybe shed light on it. ''i can't think of any reason to not be able to have a main stage for such a big event'' ''no face cams. no listen ins'' This above all comes down to the events been run at cost imo, i cant see DH making any money - only losing, as such some stuff will naturally have to be cut to stop costs bleeding out. Main stage and all that jazz comes when developers are paying for events but with Grassroots only supporting prize pools to the best of my knowledge I personally think we are lucky to be even getting anything at all, these TO's are putting events on for free and taking a hit on the cost. ''or to not broadcast on the halo twitch'' Firstly i wholeheartedly agree that a new channel is always going to be shit compared to using the halo channel, if 343 don't want to make it a full blown official halo event then i'd personally ignore the halo twitch but at the very least use twitch.tv/hcs and build that for the esport going forward long term. The other 2 parts, 1) building for the future, if TO's are going to tender for Halo Infinite then building up there channel and brand now is a great way to start the ball rolling, its their product essentially and some like to keep it in house. 2) money, again if TO's are doing this at cost any ad revenue they can pull back or sponsorship space they can sell on the show is well worth it and helps the event out in every way. ''we need you, @Onset, and walshy back for casting'' Again not speaking for anyone but myself here but caster costs can be quite high dependant on how many you want working, who you want working and for how long you want them there. On top of that when you start to venture for casters outside of NA the cost can easily start to spiral up due to flights been like 1-2K minimum (If they also ship in observers that's additional costs too). The next question is do casters even want to attend certain events if the production value and resources/tools to do the job are low? Been on poorly produced show can in turn hurt the casters brand and its also just a long ass drag to cast if your not given the right tools or poor equipment/sound level/screens etc etc for the job at hand. Take all this with a pinch of salt btw but i'm just trying to help some see that these events may be rough around the edges but until we get actual HCS events again people are doing whatever they can to at least try and give us events under the Grassroots programme.
  13. Me and you are on the same wave length 99.9% of the time but honestly the last 2 UGC events I've watched have been almost unwatchable and boardline a meme with the sound issues.
  14. I really, really, really, really, really, really miss face cams.
  15. Agreed, its done nothing but damage to competitive imho. Honestly, i know sprint is a hot topic but i'm more worried about hit markers, they literally ruined Halo 5 and are the single worst thing to ever happen to the franchise.
