  1. The issue is both threads would be dead in a matter of a week. It just seems like a lame excuse to hide what the real issue is, there isn’t much to talk about for competitive fans of Halo right now.

     

    We’ve done HCS AM threads, we’ve done Beyond Discord, we’ve done Beyond Twitch chat, etc.

     

    A lot of the staff has been around for 10+ years with this community, and these type of threads and discussions. This isn’t anything new, it’s a lull right now - and will pass when events and Halo news begin to spice things up again.

    I just don't think that's true.

     

    The problem isn't the lack of Halo content to discuss; the community is clearly happy to discuss stuff other than Halo, as evidenced by the fact that this thread is filled with off topic posts.

     

    The problem is that the way you've got this forum set up.

     

    Beyond has the the forum equivalent of Halo 5's playlist problem. There are way too many unnecessary sections. 

     

    Beyond has 3 seperate Halo sections, one of which has two more sub sections. You've got an entire off topic category as well as an individual off topic thread in the Halo section! If you segregate all the different categories of discussion like that then obviously you're going to have issues as people just can't find the discussions.  

     

    This forum would be far better if you completely removed all the categories. Consolidate unnecessary threads (you don't need separate threads for finding players in different states/cities) and bring them all together into one forum.

     

    That way, instead of people bookmarking this specific thread, they bookmark the front page of the forums. Instead of trying to bunch all the discussions into one thread you can see each seperate discussion at a glance and engage with those which you're interested in.

     

    Yeah, it's likely that this specific thread would be a lot quieter but instead you'd have a bunch of different active threads. 

     

    People are capable of posting in more than one thread. There are communities all over the internet which are evidence of that.

     

     

     

    Then again, I can understand that you might want to avoid having people stumble across the H5 discussion thread so maybe it is best to keep everything in here.

  2. "Hecz mentions the Halo team in his interview we recorded last night. We weren't aware of this decision. Most likely going to keep it in and then cover the departure of Halo the following week. Still thinking of the best way to go about it"

  3. I could be completely wrong, but Snakebite saying the team and org 'couldn't come to an agreement' sounds like the team wanted to stick together but OpTic as an org wanted them to make a change.

     

    Could be wrong, but sounds a bit like that to me.

    I'd say it's more likely a contract issue with winnings etc. Optic might have wanted a bigger slice of the pie than what the team were willing to give.

  4. why is this a good thing lol

     

    why is this an issue, teams have done just that all season long

     

    you earn the points, and then you form the best team you can based upon the points you earned

    why do it randomly when you could... not do it randomly

    Based on the pro points groups doesn't the 12th seed have the easiest group for their respective section (9th-12th)?

     

    Ie: for 9th to get into the top 8 they'd have to beat the 5th and 13th seed. For 12th to get into top 8 they need to beat the 8th and 16th seed. That doesn't seem very fair...

  5. Looking at the stats on halo5arena, the kill difference was only by 3, the game lasted over 10mins, and the score was 3-2. Pretty close to a 50/50 matchup.

    Well that's probably because they paired 3 of the best players in Europe with me.

     

    I can only drag them down so far.

     

    In all honesty I'm not really complaining that much. I quite enjoy playing with really good players, it's a good learning experience.
