  1. It's kind of rushed, but here's the first in a series where I attempt to break down what's going on or what's been going on in Halo eSports to those who may be out of the loop in a quick and concise way. With the first video, I've focused on the state of CLG and whether or not they'll continue to dominate, in addition to how they became to dominate in the first place. Future videos might be less specific, but the E6 stuff is too good (bad) to not cover, so expect something on that as well. Any and all feedback is appreciated! Hate, praise, dislikes, likes, whatever! This video in particular is not up to my personal standards.
  2. I was actually thinking about doing this a while ago! In the style of 3KliksPhilip and what he does for Counter Strike, actually.
  3. Tonight was so good I'm almost not salty about last night's DCs anymore. Almost.
  4. That's more of an individual issue. Nobody is required to watch late. It enables those who are able to/willing to stay up be able to watch it as opposed to just completely blocking off those who don't get off of work and school lately.
  5. I completely forgot Week 2 started tonight. Gotta speed edit that video now. EDIT: Predictions, also ALG 3 - 1 LOL NV 2 - 3 EG LG 3 - 2 E6 TL 1 - 3 OG
  6. Not that I'm always in the know, but I've been thinking about making some videos to help introduce the curious into understanding the Halo competetive scene. I have a friend who watches whenever nV plays but he doesn't really keep up or know anything about Halo eSports, and based off of some other forums (NeoGAF, Reddit) it seems like there are some other "side-line" viewers. Would this be helpful/neat, or redundant and a waste of time?
  7. Did OpTic Scrim against nV recently? If so, what was the result? Working on a video, and I remember hearing something about a scrim, but I wasn't able to watch it.
  8. I haven't gone positive in 10 games+ I haven't been placed in gold since launch.
  9. Lately I've been tuned out of everything Halo eSports related until just 2 days ago. Can anybody roughly summarize the stats fiasco for me?
  10. It's worth going to if you ever need a new signature.
  11. SAW on Mercy single-handedly ruins the flow of Slayer on that map. Take it out or reduce the ammo capacity; It creates too much of a snowball effect as it currently is.
  12. The Didact really needs to come back. Shitty comics be damned. The frankie quote though, I don't know if I see anything wrong with it.
  13. I wouldn't call the characterization awful, just non-existent. Spartans Ops Palmer in Halo 4 is awful characterization. Her dialogue is obnoxious, un-witty, and adds nothing but irritation to a bland and repetetive game-mode. She was fine in the main campaign of 4, and got better in 5. Not great in Halo 5, but also not awful. Reach had more characterization than 5 and we only knew those characters a short time before they died. Dunno if that's just cause their situation was shitty, or because they only had so much time, but we need more of that. When it comes to Halo 6, I think a Mass Effect-style of campaign where you pick out your squad from the likes of Kelly, Fred, Linda, Tanaka, Buck, Vale, The Arbiter, Palmer, or Thorne(?) on any given mission while you switch back and forth between Chief and Locke would work great. Might let the players get attached to the characters more if they get to hand pick their squad?
  14. Halo 5's aiming on launch is what made me drop it after 2 months. I've since picked it back up thanks to the ability to un-fuck it all up, and I actually feel good about matches that I lose now, because now I know it's not because a select few thought that the aiming system was okay when it was actually garbage. Like, just re-use Halo 4's aiming. Or Reach. Or 3. Or, anything else because they worked, and not what Halo 5's trash was. You don't have to purposely make your game difficult to make it competitive-viable. I had a Faux-LAN party yesterday, and my friend who had never played Halo 5 until then struggled with aiming, but was able to do pretty well when we switched to MCC and played CE for the rest of the night. (EDIT: He also hadn't played the other Halo titles in a while, so it wasn't a case of being conditioned to the good-style of aiming immediately prior to picking up Halo 5, either.) To clarify, I love Halo 5, I think for the most part it's mechanics and game feel are fantastic and 343i should continue with what they're doing. But if Halo 6 has aiming in a similar state of Halo 5 at launch, I'll be pretty disappointed/frustrated/un-enthusiastic about the entire game.
  15. The use of Halo 4 sounds drives me crazy in this, but otherwise this is pretty neato. Not a fan of the music, but I guess it fits
  16. What is this nonsense that I'm reading? I don't know the devs personally, but it is possible that many of them are assholes. That's the case with anyone I've heard of but haven't personally met. However, making design choices that I may disagree with does not make them that potential asshole.
  17. I'm aware of Walshy's stuff, and it's great, but I think something with the production value of The Sprint would go a long way, not to mention I think some of the less hardcore fans are more likely to watch something on Halo Channel (If they make it not suck) than on Walshy's channel. With an expanding eSports presence in places other than NA, having an introduction to "the scene" for newcomers officially produced by 343i couldn't hurt.
  18. I would watch the shit out of a Halo eSports History original series on The Halo Channel. Just sayin'.
  19. So on one hand, I can't say I'm rooting for a team called "French Toast Mafia" in the Pro League. Which Sucks On the other hand, Halo eSports getting those OpTiC views tho
  20. After I reviewed the update and complained about the Mantis on Guillotine, somebody redirected me toward a link where the creator talked about how 343 replaced symmetrical Warthogs with a neutral Mantis. Like, how do you fuck up that bad. I try not to be senselessly outraged over stupid things that don't matter. I try not to harp on 343's design choices every excuse I get, but holy shit. This update was so close to being perfect, imo.
