  2. I agree with Hecz 100% but Halo came from a different time in my opinion. Just think, in 2005 when H2 was on the scene, Youtube JUST started, we were using AIM to talk to people, not twitter. These platforms still werent as huge as they were by H3 either. I feel like the CoD scene had a lot of benefits and the scene definitely used it to their advantage. They had the excitement of a new style of game on console, epsorts in general, and the rise of youtube and twitter. 

     

    Pretty sure its been beaten into the ground, but we all know the content from pros is scarce and also their involvement in the community can be distant. I know some have tried and quit due to "nobody caring" which i dont blame them i guess. I still just believe we came from a different time period. Like in Halo, you play 10 hours a day, then showed up to the tournament and got your placing, and that was it, thats all that mattered. Its a very scrappy, raw scene IMO, and thats why i love it. It was all about winning, and not about your "content" or "followers". 

     

    Times have changed though and ive used this metaphor about halo and esports: basically there was a giant spaceship taking off that was esports, all these games were inside, ready and taking off with it, but Halo, something that had already been pioneering console esports, which should have been sitting first row in the space ship, tripped and fell on its face as it was taking off and is now hanging on the wing as its flying. 

     

    This more than ever should have been the perfect time do what hecz said and get into the content stuff, but at the same time, it comes back to my original points- there is going to be a ~2.5 million dollar tournament, no time to make videos when your teammates are sketching, and you need to be as practiced as possible. Tough situation. Everything is there but i guess its for whoever is willing to step up. Weve got awesome streamers in Naded (rip), Ninj, Snipedown, Heinz was doing good. Just need to get some 'tubers.
