  1. This, and what all the unknown and smaller channels should be doing is helping and supporting eachother and collaborating as well.
  2. I encourage everyone to read my most recent reply to Mesty. Halo isn't as dead as you think it is on YouTube. Machinimas are pulling pretty good views. And I think if people in the competitive scene reached out to them for help, we could potentially use their help in order to gain more traffic to the competitive scene. I know the community's are both very diverse, but it COULD (key word here, could) potentially help get more casual players to check out the competitive side of things. Now whether you think this could or couldn't work doesn't matter, because why not try it? There's no reason not too. Along with better titles and etc to potentially gain more traffic and easier access to their videos and channels, who knows what could happen. Everyone being negative, or unsure should realize that things couldn't get worse from trying these things out. And that there is no reason not too. TLDR: Just please read my other post to Mesty, because I have ideas to help this community, and I believe in these ideas despite everything else being said.
  3. Yes, that's also a factor. But I'm sure there are people in the community who actually upload to help attempt grow the scene. I encourage you to read my other post above where I talk about machinimas if you haven't already.
  4. At least I'm TRYING to offer advice to my fellow community. In order to try to HELP them get more success. If what I say doesn't work, than hey, at least I tried. Like I said in my previous post, I just want the best for my Halo friends. But what are YOU doing? Worrying about how I talk/type? Edit: Also, read my other post, because I'm not saying putting the word 'Halo' in your title would help. Clearly you don't get it. -__-
  5. I'm not saying just putting the word halo in the title would help a whole lot, what I am saying is that none of these videos even mention Halo, so how would anyone find them besides just knowing the players names and searching them up? At least put like "Halo 5 Guardians Gameplay" or at least, something. Because if not, how will anyone find them, since they are not that well known already? As for the Cod pro's thing, that is probably because they are already established. None of the Halo pros were making videos, or at least going hard at it in Halo's prime in order to establish themselves and their subscriber fan base. And I don't think I said it before but I will now, I'm not saying "This will definitely gain your viewership if you do this! :lol: ", what I am saying is that it may help, and that people should do it. Because why the hell not? What do they have to lose? And I don't think that's true when you say no one watches Halo videos, Snip3down is doing well. And as for Halo in general, outside of the Halo competitive community, there are still Machinimas that do well also! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8roKxrnxJ94 Almost 40,000 views and it was uploaded only 2 months ago! I think I may have come up with an even BETTER idea, the pros should try to ask and build a partnership with these Machinima makers to see if they can help get traffic towards themselves and the HCS and etc! It may not work since the community's are very diverse, but why not? Once again, what the hell do they have to lose? I remember a long time ago when I used to listen to the Halo pro podcasts, Gandhi would preach about how they need to cater to the casual community, well this could (not saying it will work for sure) be a way to get them to interact. I had also seen another Halo machinima from only 2 years ago (which was when Halo was supposedly more dead than now), and it has almost a million views! I just went onto Snip3downs YouTube and saw that he does it too by the way. -__- (Which I guess would prove my "improve your marketing" criticsm wrong, but then again, Snip3down is already established and well known.) I mean, come on, put like "MLG HALO PRO SNIP3DOWN GOES OFF WITH SNIPER!!!" or something, I don't know dude. Like no one is going to find that video outside of your fanbase or people who already know your name. "Rig TS vs Renegades, Insane Snipes" is a trash title. And I'm not hating or anything, I'm just being honest as a person who has a little tiny bit of marketing knowledge... Obviously he's doing well, he's getting good views, but he could probably get better views, I want the best for him and all other Halo players, so I hope if he ever reads this, he doesn't get upset by my criticism, as well as the rest of you. Sorry if this is a mess like my other post lol, just trying to get this out as quickly as possible.
  6. Because in my opinion it deserved its own thread. I'm dropping gems of knowledge. And not everyone will read it on here, and I want the knowledge to reach more people. And I feel like it would probably reach more people on it's own thread. Which it must be... Because the own thread got +7 rep so far, and this one only has +1 so far which is the OP...
  7. Can't tell if you're trolling or not... But yes it would probably help a lot for when people search for Halo gameplay on youtube.
  8. Never seen this to be honest, so I can't comment on it. If that tiny thing ruined it for both of you, and neither of you get it, I feel sorry for both of you. That's how my friends and I talk, and many other players in the community talk. We say things like "Halo kids, CoD kids, Halo: Reach kids, Halo 4 kids, online kids" etc. If you haven't heard any of those phrases you must be living under a rock. I don't care what you think of my delivery of my message, I just hope that you understand the message. And that "Halo players" (I'm sure that's much better for you) need to change their ways. I will admit that I didn't type this in the most "professional" way possible obviously (peep my boy Dj Khaled), but once again, I don't care. I just typed it up as if I was talking casually. Not trying to be a professional here and get a friggin' employment opportunity at some company. I'm just trying to help my fellow Halo kids/players. And if you actually read it, (hopefully you did) you will see that they probably could use this advice.
  9. Edit: Below this post is another post where I talk about Halo machinimas, and how they get lots of viewership despite people saying that Halo is dead on YouTube. An idea I've come up with because of this is: Perhaps pros and people involved in HCS should try to do business with Halo machinima creators in order to get more traffic towards the competitive community. I recommend reading that as well to expand upon this idea. Despite the huge differences in community, I believe this idea could actually go somewhere. Maybe a simple, short and interesting ad like, "Go check out the HCS or (insert pro player channel) blah blah blah (hype it up)!" advertisement played before the Machinima begins could be all it takes to get an increase in traffic for the competitive players/community, even if it is small amounts of traffic, anything helps. TLDR: I have a good idea about the competitive community partnering with the machinima community to help grow the competitive community, read my other post below, and let's expand on this idea maybe? Original post: I just want to show you all, something I feel is important. I made this exact post here and I'm just copying and pasting it because I feel like it's so important to shine light on this that it deserves a topic of its own: http://teambeyond.net/forum/topic/12300-optic-h3cz-advice-to-the-halo-community/ "To be honest, I have noticed that there is actually quite a few Halo Youtubers but they get no views because they suck at marketing their videos... Titles of their videos are like "Sick Overkill", like dude! Wtf? No one is going to find that video unless they already know who you are. Put Halo in the title, AT LEAST. Everyone reading this: You don't have to watch the videos, just look at the titles, and descriptions of the videos, and also notice how they barely have any views. The fact that ANY of these videos are about Halo isn't mentioned AT ALL in the videos descriptions or titles. Not even Naded, THE PRO does it. Example: I used to have a friend from Halo: Reach who had a TONNNN of clips on YouTube, but they got no views because he didn't know how to properly title (or market, whatever you wanna call it) his videos. He would just title them "Overkill", like I said before. I can't even find them right now to link them, that's how hard it is to find some of these Halo kids videos. Here's MORE examples: (He did put "h2a" in the description, I'll give him credit for trying, but that's not good enough.) Another perfect example, just the simple word "Halo" is no where to be found in the description or title. ANOTHER perfect example. HALO ISN'T EVEN IN THE TITLE OR DESCRIPTION! LIKE DUDE! WHO IS GOING TO FIND THIS VIDEO UNLESS THEY SEARCH YOUR GAMERTAG? -__- ANOTHER example: And... And another one for the hell of it. Once again... Halo isn't mentioned anywhere in the title or description. Some of these Halo kids really effin suck at marketing, like it's REALLY bad, they don't even put Halo in the title of their videos OR description. Like come on dudes... It could all be so simple, NO ONE is going to find your videos. Sorry if this post is a mess, but I really don't care, you should still be able to understand what I am trying to say. Look for yourselves at their videos, "Halo" isn't even in the title or description of them. -__- Someone needs to educate these guys, seriously. Kudos to everyone for still putting in effort and making videos... But no one is going to find them, sorry. The only reason I've personally found these videos is because I have talked to some of these people, or because I've looked up their gamertags on YouTube. (Which is obviously something not a lot of people do.)" - My original post I'm just trying to shine light on something that is seriously holding back the Halo community, and that is shitty marketing. Or whatever you wanna call it shitty video titles, whatever. I'm far from a marketing expert (or whatever the hell you wanna call it, once again), but I know for a fact that no random person looking for Halo gameplay will find any of these channels or videos. I'm sure even just putting the words "Halo 2 Anniversary Gameplay" or whatever game, in the title, would probably make a significant difference in the views. But hell, maybe I'm wrong, maybe posting this was a waste of time, and I'm an idiot, I don't care, I'm just trying to help the community. Thank you.
  10. So to sum it up... He's basically telling the pro players to stop being lazy and make content. To be honest, I have noticed that there is actually quite a few Halo Youtubers but they get no views because they suck at marketing their videos... Titles of their videos are like "Sick Overkill", like dude! Wtf? No one is going to find that video unless they already know who you are. Put Halo in the title, AT LEAST. Not even Naded, THE PRO does it.

WHO IS GOING TO FIND THIS VIDEO UNLESS THEY SEARCH YOUR GAMERTAG? -__- ANOTHER example: And... And I have MORE... But anyways... I'm sure you get it. Some of these Halo kids really effin suck at marketing, like it's REALLY bad, they don't even put Halo in the title of their videos OR description. Like come on dudes... It could all be so simple, NO ONE is going to find your videos. Sorry if this post is a mess, but I really don't care, you should still be able to understand what I am trying to say.

I feel like all of this is so important to shine light on that I might just make this a topic of it's own, but I'm lazy af, and all I'd do is just copy and paste this.
  11. I don't mess with Windows 10 I think it's trash, and my current computer is a Windows XP and it's slow, and it's time to upgrade to something modern, but I want to upgrade to a laptop like I said, just because it's portable.
  12. The most I'm willing to spend on a laptop is $1,500.
  13. Looking to get into music production, I want to invest in an Apple laptop, but not sure which is the best on the market right now for that. Anybody have any recommendations? Or experiences?
  14. I know some people think IGN be on that bullshit, but I honestly agree with this 100%. Even though I did enjoy the campaign... And thought that the actual only cutscene of Locke vs Chief was the most badass thing I've ever seen in a video game ever, even though it could've definitely been better, they needed more moments like it.
  15. Yup, and although I think those games are better than Halo 4 and Reach, I still think Reach and Halo 4 had a better radar system.
