  1. Whatever it is they absolutely MUST not have a giant loophole that ruins the game for everyone (derankers).  I don't get the people who say they're not a big deal because they ruined hundreds of games for me.

     

    If there are 'cheaters' like this in the new ranking system, then I hope 343 at least bans majority of them.  Bungie sat back on their ass and didn't do squat--  I could have accurately banned 1k+ if I had the power to, but Bungie couldn't even decipher them from normal players.


  2. How many pro's have posted in a settings discussion thread? how many pro's have created threads on here that would spark a debate/discussion about competitive halo? Instead they rather brag, argue or troll in AGL threads...pro's can miss me with this high horse shit.

    Completely agree.  Not to be too serious cause I'm not, but I honestly think the pros coming here and elsewhere trolling isn't even funny. It's not a huge deal and I guess since other people think it's funny they can carry on, but I haven't even cracked one fuckin smirk


  3. 343 is blessed.  All everyone wants now, even less competitive people, is for Halo to go back to its roots.  No one is saying the gameplay is repetitive or it needs a whole new interesting dynamic-- Literally all 343 has to do is make Halo 5 classic and people will go NUTS.  A cut and paste job with a couple of fine finishes really would seal the deal.

  4. Why is this impossible?

    I didn't say impossible.  I will say that it's unlikely though.  Cod already has a bunch of good casters who know the game.  Gandhi isn't professional and doesn't bring anything they don't already have.  The one thing he has going for him is knowing Goldenboy but honestly Gandhi's casting has taken a turn for the worse.  I know people might disagree with me, but half the time he casts it's just mindless yelling along with the other caster.  He was a lot better at MLG when they were actually professional and organized.


  5. Switch to CoD makes no "statement" to 343 IMO that is just plain band-wagoning(switching to a game because its more popular) and Gandhi as a community leader should know better than to even suggest the idea. 

     

     Completely agree.  While he did say it's the best way to make money, my problem is he acted like the whole community should switch-- majority of the community doesn't compete in events.

     

    You're also completely right about it making no statement.  343 could give 2 shits if the competitive Halo scene went to COD.  In fact, they'd probably prefer that due to no longer getting bitched at for their dumb mistakes.

  6. I completely agree. I'm proud in a way to express openly how dumb I thought Gandhi's latest thoughts were. I'm also glad people were questioning Ghost on his opinion of H3>H2. Why? It's not because I like seeing these people stressed out or irritated, it's because we can't blindly make choices due to one person's opinon. If everyone really did switch to CoD like Gandhi suggested, there would no longer be competitive Halo, and we sure as hell know that 343 doesn't care if it's gone.

  7. If that's true, then the competitive halo community has come a LONG way since I was last active, which was only 4-5 months ago.

     

     

     

    This is a good point that more people should recognize; There is no skill cap in Halo 1. The people that have been playing HCE this whole time have gotten better, and will continue to get better if they keep playing for another decade.

     

    In Halo 3, there was a point that all the pros reached where they couldn't progress as individuals anymore. They reached the skill cap, which was relativley low and was detrimental to the already poor competitive side of Halo 3.

     

     

     

    I'm curious then as to why the Halo 4 competitive settings resemble more the H3/HR model of "all teamwork, no individual skill" linear aggression style of play. I think the settings could be much better; It's part of the reason why I haven't played Halo for such a long time.

    Changing the settings can only do so much.  You really think with the limited custom game options that we've been provided Halo 4 could be all about individual skill?  I agree the settings can be better obviously, and that there's a little room for individual play to be more rewarded-- but drastically no way.  The game at its core will remain the same. (Not depending on a TU)


  8. I know little about SC2, not sure if it would work as well for halo 5 as it did for SC2.

    I'll rephrase and say pretty much any competitive ranking system.  Hell even Halo 3's 1-50 sounds good now, and that was broken AF as I'm sure you know.  He should strive for better, though.


  9. Ghost, could you affirm/disaffirm this statement, please? Not trying to be rude here, I'm just genuinely curious.

    He already did, sorta.  Although I am not Ghost

     

     

    It's about having that perfect balance between teamwork and individual skill. Halo:CE had it.

     

    Anyways I feel like we're not really discussing anything important just the obvious tbh
