  1. Played for the first time today, these settings are a lot of fun. Really makes my bad habits stand out too.
  2. I go to the University of Kentucky, there is an annual tournament on campus that used to have Halo, now it is just Smash and FIFA. The turn out is pretty good, and very chill atmosphere. When there was Halo, I went by myself and got placed with three others; the first round we played against Ace and got destroyed. I really like this idea and could see it going places, even if it just starts out as an online thing.
  3. I see no radar /alternate setting tournaments as investment tournaments. The payoff for playing them right now will be minimal, but in the future the payoff could be substantial. The tournaments could be setup so the rules and settings could be modified each time based on feedback; this way if something doesn't work you're not locked in for a long time.
  4. Doing something similar to pro cycling might work. In cycling the Spring is for one day races. The Summer and Fall are for longer stage races. In Halo, make late Winter and Spring the time for Open Lans, ending with a big Open Championship. The Summer and Fall will be for two Pro League and Challenger seasons with an Open Lan in the middle.
  5. Hi, Everybody I am doing a survey about the Halo Esports Community for a school project, and I need people to fill it out. It is 4 questions long and should only a take a few minutes. Here is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NYZCYLZ I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me out. -Thanks
  6. Esports are kind of the odd man out at Xgames, but does not mean these gamers do not deserve a gold medal. Also, esports should not aim to be at the Olympics, we can aim higher.
  7. I'm open to running the raid this weekend, just send a message; Currently 285 light, Titan. GT: Ngeneerist
  8. The knife was in the E3/ Gamescom build, It means assassination. Here is when Flamesword assassinates Ramirez in the invitational and you can see the knife in the kill feed at 5:44. https://youtu.be/-KwfV4C5U9M?t=5m40s
  9. I agree the medals are way too much and pointless: when I said rewards I mean more like the random drop REQ packs, skins, and armor pieces. Should have clarified that. I understand what you are saying, I am the same way; I got my **** kicked in for years, but I worked hard to get good. I, and most of the people in this forum, don't need any other reward besides winning. These rewards are meant for the other part of the Halo community the more social players who are just playing to have fun. The rewards (REQ packs, skins, armor) are not supposed to replace the feeling of victory and being good at the game, but should be reasons to play more and make people feel a little good. I have friends in other games who wanted to stop playing after numerous games of not playing well, then they got a random armor drop, and decided to play more to see if they can get the rest of the armor set. The REQ packs, skins, and armor pieces are just more reasons for people to play the game.
  10. I think having a reward system in a game is a good thing for new players, especially for a skill based shooter like Halo. New players, who are still learning, will be less likely to leave a game if they are getting small rewards that encourage them to play one more match. Eventually the new players will no longer need the rewards because they are good at the game now, where K/D or Victories are the reward. Now gameplay is what will keep the players in the long run, and I think Halo 5 can stack up.
  11. The tanks in picture looks extremely unpolished. I want to see them fully finished and close up, but the Scorpion just looks like it put on a few pounds. I would still call it a Scorpion tank.
  12. My game crashes nearly every mp match. I reinstalled MCC and out of ideas to fix it. Anyone know anything helpful to fix this, or do I have to wait for the next patch? -Thanks
  13. Its an adapter to change stick height, concave/convex, and texture. It just snaps on top of your current sticks, and achieves the exact same thing.
  14. Yes, Scufs allow you to change sticks before you buy, or use Kontrol Freaks to mod your default sticks. I am not advocating buying stuff, but for those who can't claw these can help. I attached links below to allow people to check this stuff out. Scuf Send in Service- https://scufgaming.com/shop/scufone/xbox-one/ Control Freek- http://www.kontrolfreek.com/fps.html
  15. There are several third party companies that had been making these for years. Its definitely an advantage to have them, that is why every COD pro and many Halo pros have them.The Xbox Elite is actually very competitively priced for the features and customization. The price tag is not small for these controllers, but Scufs start at $50 to send in your own controller for basic upgrades.
  16. IGN will be playing H5 in the next few minutes on their stream
  17. I think H5 will be different because 343 is making it (I think), while Certain Affinity made H2A's. Drastically different, probably not. Maybe with all this Windows 10 Xbox crossover MS has been pushing something like PC Forge could exist. Fingers crossed
  18. Master portals, either you use them or know who else is using them. Watch camo and shotguns, used together they basically make a power weapon.
  19. I agree with that, the creator of the video has a huge passion for Halo.
  20. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmHXHjTZArQ Saw this video posted yesterday about MCC, and its pretty good.
  21. It would be nice if they added the ability to access music like Pandora or Spotify in game. Something such as side bar next to the score board to select track, adjust audio, etc. I know that it is not going to happen, but it would be nice not to have to either snap music, use a mix amp, or use ear buds with my headset. Oh well.
  22. This poster makes me wonder what the terminals in H5 will be like. With all these Spartans I bet some really good untold back story could be in store.
  23. 1080p 60fps has been confirmed, I'm pretty sure.
  24. What about the SMG as the starting secondary? Have a Br+SMG, start? This loadout could speed up the game because people would not be afraid to push for up close battles, and switch from the BR to the SMG to clean up kills.
