  1. Off Topic - but I thought the same thing with the Halo 5 maps, far too much gray and dull/dark colors. It's amazing Halo games in the early 2000's were more aesthetically pleasing than H5 maps (IMO).
  2. This may be a long shot but gonna ask here since no one is responding on waypoint. Sometimes when I start an H3 game the map won't load and I get kicked back to the lobby with a message that says "connection interrupted" leaving my team 3v4 and me banned. I've tried uninstalling, resetting mac address, hard resetting and nothing has fixed it. Has anyone else here experienced this and able to permenantly fix it? Theres a post on waypoint with many others having this same issue but there's been no post with a fix and I haven't seen 343 acknowledge it yet.
  3. Figured I'd join the recent hype and play some MCC. I start up an H3 game, got sent back to the lobby before the map was loaded then got a message saying I'm banned for an hour. Nice.
  4. Just so you know you're not alone, I get that same disconnect frequently. The map loads up about 1/4 of the way then sends me back to the main menu.
  5. I played h2c hardcore and noticed there is no CTF in the playlist, snipers don't spawn on Sanc slayer and spawns are so screwed up that the enemies were spawning at our base on midship while we were planting the bomb. Really bummed to say the least.
  6. Was leaving CTF out of H2c Hardcore intentional or an oversight?
  7. There are times I'll shoot at someone and the fight immediately turns into a 20 second wall/ramp spam battle. I'll just stop mid-fight because it's exhausting and the game feels more like a building game opposed to an FPS at that point. I'm with you, I find engaging/shooting more entertaining than mindlessly building 300 ft in the air.
  8. I think the immense popularity of BR is a fad. You're right in BR games are here to stay but I don't think this level of popularity will persist for multiple reasons.
  9. OT but thought it was cool former Halo pros won the Fortnite Friday tourny yesterday.
  10. Ah, didn't realize a law was involved. Skimming through the twitter exchange beteeen tashi and neighbor made it seem like a 343 decision. Hopefully it works out.
  11. A couple thoughts: First - I just played the Extermination gametype last night in the Elimination playlist and had more fun playing h5 than I have in a long time. Mini-size Narrows is great. How long has this even been in the game? Second - I think at this point in h5s lifecycle it is a poor decision to not allow Neighbor to compete. We're past the point where he has a competitive advantage and from a business standpoint, anything to boost viewership and interest is value add. Don't ovethink this 343.
  12. I think that depends on if Microsoft will still have ~$1m tournaments for H5. If there's enough cash up for grabs, why leave it on the table? Granted that doesn't mean there will be more than 1,000 people watching any H5 tournament in 2018/19 on Twitch...
  13. Not sure if it's already been said, but Fortnite Battle Royale is free to play and is on XB1. It's addicting, a little buggy but that's expected with 100 people in a game in early access.
  14. I think realistically, there's just nothing left in the tank to grow an audience for Halo 5. The game is stale and the interest for competitive H5 seems to be at an all-time low. However, the sooner MLG can get their hands on Halo the better and hopefully can build some momentum for H6 (or whatever it's going to be called).
  15. After years of only owning Halo I made the jump earlier this year and bought OW and Rocket League, H5 just became so stale and repetitive. Overwatch has a completely different feel but I haven't had this much fun playing an Xbox game since like '05. Only gripe is a couple of the ults seem too game changing.
  16. Playing R6 Siege and Overwatch reminded me that maps can actually have awesome designs with multiple bright colors instead of an abundance of off-colored gray. Also, aiming with the DMR still feels broken in H5.
  17. I wonder if some PhD in math will create a formula to model the number of active players in a game based off twitch viewers.
  18. Wasn't Proving Grounds supposed to be merged back into Team Arena after testing? So it would just be one HCS Playlist not two. Having these two separated makes no sense, especially with the already low population. Also - any chance of Team Beyond H2 or H3 tournaments? I'm sure this has been asked before. If Evadur's tourny could get the turn out it did, I'd imagine with the TB following, there'd be a fairly good turnout.
  19. I think Dr DisRespect has over 10k subs. The production of his stream alone is better than the entire teams of people running the prior Halo events, it's honestly wild.
  20. So after all the roster shenanigans in the past, with a whopping 4k viewers on Twitch and already mad fan base after E3, now is the time to not allow a team play when those two teams would bring in the most viewers? I mean who is making these decisions?
  21. I thought for the longest time that I was somehow switching my grenades and not realizing I was doing it or that I needed to buy a new controller. Then I found out it's just another nuance of Halo 5 that doesn't make any sense.
  22. When I'm asked what are my favorite games of all time, Tribes 2 (pc) and Halo 2, easily.
  23. I purposefully don't pick up the DMR because the aiming when using it feels too wonky (on top of the already screwed up h5 aiming).
