  1. I disagree. I've noticed that competitive players are generally less stereotypical nerdy than their casual counterparts because their competitive drive has come from traditional sports IRL. Although, I do define casual a bit wrong perhaps--I mainly mean gamers who play regularly but not competitively.
  2. Firstly, I do feel for 343 a bit on this issue. In most of the ideal playlist suggestions I've seen, few have had Infinity's idea, so I can't really blame them for taking the Halo 3 approach--something I have seen people demanding for a while. Of course, it's not actually the H3 approach, as there's no social--a problem imo. I certainly agree that having one or limited ranked playlists like you suggest will help the eSports scene grow more, but it is at the cost of the niche of people who enjoy playing non competitive settings, well, competitively. I personally really enjoyed playing Team Slayer in Halo 3--it was my go to playlist. For others, it was Snipers, SWAT, etc. I do think if MLG was the only ranked playlist, I would have indeed played it the most just because it was ranked, and I think you're right with this concept in Halo 5--the population of the HCS playlist will be a lot greater and more people will be exposed to the scene if it was one of 3 ranked compared to every Arena playlist. So yeah, I lean towards support of this system, but I do still feel for those who liked non traditional settings at a high level, because it was fun and competitive in a different way. I will 100% agree that some Arena playlists should be unranked at the very least for more casual variety than simply Warzone. Overall, if I had to choose, I'd support this system with maybe one more to make it 4 ranked--perhaps BTB.
  3. I'd also be interested in legalizing Battlefield if it was more accessible. I mean there's no reverse ledge DI but Congo was legal forever and there was none there too. Or Peach's Castle. But I think Peach's Castle is a lot worse than Congo for other reasons. I don't want Isai to go Luigi though. I think Boom would win pretty handily--the only reason he lost to Isai's Mario in 2013 was because Boom started Falcon instead of Pika, and because of non DL stages. Isai is fucking beast at all other stages. I think Isai would handily win with: Pika, Fox, and Kirby. I'd put him as a favorite with Puff, about even with Yoshi, and underdog with everyone else.
  4. I agree it'd be more ideal in-game, as does everyone, but I asked Sohto (not sure on his involvement if he's TOing or what) and he said it's very likely that it will be externally timed, similarly to chess, details to come in a few days. At Smash Con the matches were technically timed in the rules, externally, but not enforced a lot. Due to the issues you brought up, I'd probably just not time at all to increase the competitiveness so no last minute controversies arise--assuming in-game timing isn't happening. Unless they're keeping the ruleset of Genesis 2, 8 minute games are extremely rare--I don't think I've seen one DL game in tournament ever, so I don't think it's a big deal.
  5. Extremely unlikely I'd say. Even if it were accessible, a lot on smashboards still don't support the stage it seems.
  6. Why modified carts/gameshark? Can't they just use an external timer...like a phone.
  7. It is incredibly strange when they don't incorporate the competitive community's biggest request--no sprint--and yet to seemingly appeal to competitive players they have almost all ranked playlists. They have it backwards, and that's what's personally frustrating me a bit.
  8. It feels ironic complaining about no social playlists from myself, a competitive player, but I feel at least a couple are needed. I played a ton of Halo 3 with IRL friends who were much lesser in skill. Since I won't want to get an auto loss in any of the ranked playlists, our only option in Halo 5 will be Warzone--which could be fun, just not much variety compared to Halo 3's selection. If 343's solution to my claim of searching ranked as an "auto loss" is the balancing of teams in ranked, even if team members have very different skill levels, it'll most likely lead to rank manipulation (boosting).
  9. This. I know they were concerned with population but I'd take less ranked playlists personally with traditional ranked matchmade games than a lot in its current state.
  10. Why didn't Jouske compete at Kanto? in his ask FM he said he wouldn't let down international players. Also, Japan needs to severely re evaluate their Bo1 tournament. They practice for thousands of hours over the years and think a 3 minute game is a good representation of it? Lol. But I'm happy Boom and Mariguas did well. Ik historically Boom's Falcon has done better than his Pika vs Moyashi and that his Falcon is his better character but I was kind of surprised he didn't go Pika for the torny for consistency sake. Shitty VOD on YouTube: http://smashboards.com/threads/kanto-tournament-top-8-2015.418613/#post-20192739 That is one insane comeback--didn't know they played 2 more 12CBs, thnx for posting. Of course the audio desynchs at the best part though, lol.
  11. How do I do platform drop/run off the side fast fall aerials from the top platform of DL while still hitting the Z cancel @2pro4show
  12. Is the rebroadcast available?
  13. Had I known Ninja was competeing I would have watched, damn it
  14. These are remakes, of course they're the same size. You can't be serious. And the argument is that because of sprint 343 feels the need to make the maps bigger. Of course sprint can't literally make maps bigger alone.
  15. Idk why people keep bringing up Formal's name in the Halo thread. He can't do both and will stick with cod
  16. @@2pro4show thanks for knocking some sense into Rob. Homie's delusional.
  17. Wait, you never go for 420 quick scopes? Kappa Really tho Hyena and even Kampy pull off trick snipes I mean it's definitely not as promiminent and i like it that way but i dnt blame some1 for going for it
  18. To me I don't want to the spawn with the AR at all in its current incarnation. Either the pistol needs a buff or the AR nerfed. Preferably pistol buffed to keep the game fast. But if they're not willing to do that and pistols only isn't an option/the automatics on map are still too prominent I'd probably choose BRs despite the pistol being inherently better, imo.
  19. Some of these aren't small but... ~Rocket double reload glitch. Was still present in Reach, too, I believe. How the hell did Bungie not even fix this? ~Overall cheating ~Derankers. Halo's probably the only game where there were people actively trying to lose on your team.
  20. You tryna play tonight @@2pro4show
  21. Both are correct statements imo. It had momentum from blops 2, and the viewership grew during Ghosts as a result
