  1. So I'm assuming it's problematic due to search times, as a result of these factors? I feel once again this issue correlates to the number of ranked playlists in the game. To increase population and search times, I know I'm not alone in that I'd rather have all of these be hard rules just like Halo 3 and have only a couple ranked playlists than a bunch where the rank in the given playlist becomes seemingly less significant due to imbalanced matches.
  2. For sure. They definitely got that OpTic juice.
  3. I think being successful on YouTube and promoting competitive Halo are hard to balance. I suppose Beyond is doing a good job, but Maniac and Flamesword didn't surpass 70k and 150k subs respectively by posting "H2A Scrims vs Denial Game 1". It's pretty much all Vlogs and real life content. The problem with analysis of gameplay, no matter how good, is that it caters to such a small niche--the die hard competitive players wanting to improve--it's gonna get lower numbers inherently.
  4. I feel these solutions are not ideal. No one is going to want to have people playing socially on their team when it is in fact ranked. Yes if you're skilled enough you'll quickly never play with them again, but they're still continually screwing over many people. As far as the smurf account suggestion goes, we should definitely not be encouraging this as it'll just frustrate people once again, not to mention you can't work on other things in-game you want as it's not your main account.
  5. You answered your own debate, basically. Halo 5 is so far removed from Quake that an analogy is pointless--1v1 will almost certainly not be the most competitive format.
  6. I mean I feel it's pretty universal that most would prefer it day one. But there's not really anything we can do, and after MCC people are more forgiving to the idea of a delay to improve quality. No one's saying it's a good thing, more like, whatever.
  7. I'm not shutting down your suggestion, I think it could work with non party players (a ban won't be enough as players could just change accounts or even their IP if it's an IP ban). But this is a silly question. Everyone cares about abuse--people like things to be fair. It's not like their off in their own world abusing--it will eventually affect you, resulting in the fun factor going down. See Halo 3 as to how abusers can ruin a game. Hundreds if not a thousand of my H3 games have been lost due to derankers. I fucking hate losing due to dev's system being flawed.
  8. As there is dedicated servers, I highly doubt it.
  9. It's my destiny to make it into the elite Swat Kings .
  10. I know there's no chance of this but this is how I would have done it: Ranked: Team Arena (eventually renamed to Halo Championship series) Team Doubles Free For All BTB Social: Breakout Infection Team Slayer Team Snipers Team Swat Warzone Warzone Assault--ideally just another gametype in Warzone, though player count probably differs.
  11. Seems he just wrote that intro and that it's the Shadowrun players text
  12. Argue about the competitiveness, sure, but most CoD fans like watching SnD the most. Sometimes watching the "fast paced action" respawn gametypes have turns into mindless linear aggression and gets stale--it's why some spectators liked TS Pit. But that's an extreme example, as it's way slower than SnD. But yeah, I don't support Breakout in its current form but the change in pace isn't the problem, it's the mechanics.
  13. Still not done with it yet, but so far it's really, really good--great job. I love the incorporation of his best moments from the live events, and the syncing overall is on point. Soundtrack has a lot of variety, yet nothing over the top and distracting.
  14. In preparation of the second montage I was going to watch the first, but the audio track has been muted, damn.
  15. Poor result from the U.S. tonight vs Mexico. I mean we didn't deserve to win at all but it's poor cause the passion wasn't there. Dempsey and Altidore looking lost af, Beasley brought out of retirement only to shit the bed, Yedlin and Wood did their best but it was too late.
  16. I think I'll find Breakout exciting my main concern is simply competitiveness. I think normal damage/shields would be ideal or at the very least no spawning with grenades (not sure how it was in the beta).
  17. Is this is an issue in LoL? If not what do they do Also, I don't think they've confirmed if party restricted match making is a thing or not. I mean in the beta it wasn't but it could change.
  18. TBH5 to break viewership records
