  1. is this like when refs completely blow a call, so then they call some pedantic crap to make up for it?
  2. I remember Ninja saying (maybe a chat alert idk) that Victory would be out of town for a while, thus no scrims for like a week.
  3. Nah, it's cool because it's all according to the rules and Cratos is a genius for finding and exploiting a loophole for a business decision. It's not shady or unethical because ESL confirmed the loophole and is just throwing their hands up and saying meh, rules are rules, congrats Cratos. Naded justifies the situation by saying that ALG could have done the same thing. AKA, submitting a roster with Contra and Devon with Commonly and Spartan as the new members, then immediately dropping Contra and Devon, keeping the seed via the other two then adding the two new members. Which ALG didn't do because it's totally messed up and who in their right mind would be ok with doing that (Cratos). As it continues, we learn ESL was directly involved and ok with the situation, and we have Cratos/Shooter/Bubu confirming that they did not collaborate on this decision at all, showing that ESL support of the situation is baseless. As a robot with no human emotions or ethics, this is a perfectly logical situation. As a human with a sense of decency, it is absolutely ridiculous. I honestly didn't think I could dislike a certain player even more than I already did. But the reality of this game and everything that goes with it never ceases to amaze me. This makes me realize that my favorite game franchise lives in the same universe as the bullshit corporate job I go to every day. There is no escape. And I am sad.
  4. Looks like they threw some dried up dog turds in a basket. Uh, I mean... ooo Faze
  5. You can buy new announcer voices now. A grunt is one of the options. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/halo-5-guardians-voices-of-war-req-pack/bnkhz50b97rh
  6. I remember that being a big issue in Halo 3 that took far too long to get patched out, if it ever did, not sure.
  7. The lesson here is that you should let the animation 100% complete or this could happen.
  8. I'm not sure what their obsession is with big shiny moving structures on maps. Like, who looked at that abomination on Mercy and was like "yep, not only does that make sense and look good, there's absolutely no reason we shouldn't toe the line of performance and framerate issues. Ship it boys!" Even if it doesn't have a negative effect on performance, why do it? Seems like they over-design a lot of things, and Orion 2 continues that trend.
  9. This may have already been mentioned, but I wanted to point it out if not. Wasn't there a small tournament before H5 launched, might have been Gamescom, where they were using dev builds of the game and they had the radar on but said it was supposed to be off so they covered them with stickers on the monitors? Why did they flip-flop on that decision for competitive play immediately after launch?
  10. I made the first version of this when the old NV did well against CLG. Seemed like a good time to update it.
  11. I feel like Elamite enjoys EG's misfortune a little too much... I swear the man has an agenda.
  12. Don't think the SAW is on Fathom, but on Empire instead of the Scattershot. On topic though, I like the idea of Pro League teams being ok with scrims against non-Pro League teams. I think that level of practice is better than no practice or matchmaking at the very least. Anyone else have thoughts on it?
  13. Truth Assault was the only Assault variant I was ok with if it absolutely had to be in. The gametype needs some serious fixes before it's complete though, imo.
  14. Thanks for this, very helpful when trying to catch up on everything. Accidental neg , made up for it elsewhere . Interested in that T2 intel tho
  15. As in "hanging it up" and thumbsticks on a controller. He just said it in a weird way.
  16. Group A: Allegiance, Liquid Not sure how Chosen Squad stacks up against NA Group B: Evil Geniuses, Renegades I think Infused could make a push on RNG though. Depends what RNG shows up. Group C: Denial, eLevate I could see Immunity surprising eLevate. But then again my only intel on Immunity is like 5 years old. Group D: CLG, Epsilon Tough decision between C9 and Epsilon, either one is likely in my opinion. I like how the groups turned out. I wouldn't say any group top 2 is guaranteed.
  17. How else will I know about the 2 to 1 strongholds advantage? or TRIP CAP!
  18. So this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here it goes: while I do agree that you got melted a lot faster than expected, I think there's a few things you could have done better in this situation. With the score being that close to the end, I don't think being out in the open was a good idea. The carbine is one of the more difficult precision weapons to use and you did miss a couple shots with it. Once you realized he had an automatic and you had no help, you should have thrusted away instead of challenging. Obviously this is easy for me to say watching a clip and I know automatics are overpowered and imbalanced in the sandbox, but this clip in particular isn't a black and white example for the debate. Just my opinion though. I would have been pissed too.
