  1. I thought you did pretty well this weekend. One criticism from CoD was your loudness, but I thought you were tame and loud when appropriate. One thing you could do for some history/backstory on the players is watch some old VOD, links located at the top of the site. Of course, I'm not sure how needed it'd be if casting with Walshy/Bravo as they're vererans of the scene--overall, I'd like for all of the casters to go over more back story. My minor nitpick would be terminology. "Turtled Up" is definitely a CoD term I heard, though I don't blame its usage as it can describe the situation accurately--just not sure if people understood. I'm glad I didn't hear 2 peice, though. I remember during Ghosts when Maven went back to cast some Halo 4, and despite his OG involvement with Halo, he kept on saying 2 peice over and over, and chat was like, what? Overall, good job.


  2. it was really shut down by jagex tho. idk where the donations went. You don't just hype shit up for over a year, make hella progress for a game, pay for a server, just to scam people lol.

     

    it was fun af but mods/devs couldnt handle the power. People were getting banned for afking and picking up duped gold/items. 

    Ehh there wasn't hella progess--at least gameplay wise, Pre Alpha was pretty broken. I mean like you said the ability to dupe itself is game changing. Banning for AFK is indeed extreme. Community wise 100%, probably one of the biggest P servers ever. But I do agree the claim Vault scammed everybody is a bit extreme--he offered people their money back.


  3. 64 recap:

     

     

    Team Mejor wins doubles, Boom and Jaime taking down The Z and Tacos (2nd), who also beat Isai and Rith (3rd).

     

    Isai switches to Mario in singles, no DK on stream even. Beats Fireblaster, but then loses to Wangera 1-2, beats Stranded's Yoshi in Losers 2-0 to secure top 8. Boom has a close game vs Banze, but then almost JV6's him (was hype as fuck). Proceeds to play Tacos' Yoshi and drops game 1. Game 2, Tacos goes Falcon, Boom counterpicks with Kirby, and 4 stocks him at least. Game 3, Tacos busts out Pikachu, vs his Kirby. He's doing really well, it's tied maybe 3 stocks, and Tacos accidentally pauses, so Boom says I'll take the stock lmao. Tacos loses by only 1 stock, Boom secures top 8. Wario plays Wizzrobe, beats him 2-0 3 stocks, secures top 8, undefeated in torny so far. Kero beats The Z to secure top 8. LD's adapter gets broken again, he loses to Kero, places 9-13th. Mariguas beats Kero This leaves us with: Mariguas vs Wario, Wangera vs Boom, Kero vs Wizzy, and Tacos vs Isai.

     

     


  4. Abandon? Didn't say he would just bolt, it would be discussed. I think Hecz would 100% let him Captain a Halo team if he wanted. They honestly would be fine in CoD without him and could get someone good enough to play on that team from everything I've heard.

     

    You do know he was going to start an Optic Nation team for HWC right?

    Even if Hecz gave him his own team, which is pretty unlikely now IMO, the viewership and consistent subs would not be there, and it'd be a huge gamble to even win--the strongest point imo. They're going to be favorites for every CoD tournament most likely. Consistent good cash > a huge risk. There's a reason he stuck with CoD. Yes he wanted to do both, but when Hecz said pick one, he chose the financially stable option.

  5. @@GoldeNade

    I think he would do very well on Twitch playing under OpTic

    You think he would still be on OpTic by abandoning his CoD team? He's one of their best players, that would not fly probably. The other option would be to get on OpTic Halo, but to win they'd have to get a new roster, and Flamesword and Maniac are at the house. It'd be a huge mess. All of this just to gamble at winning when EG is the favorite is not worth it.

    • as of right now formal regularly gets more than 4k on his twitch stream and has the largest amount of subscribers for cod on twitch currently. (that 4 times ninja) whose main source of income is twitch.
    • I am fairly certain the COD players do earn salaries similarly to ENVY's COD team to allow them to compete and practice more.
    • There are typically more tournaments in COD then in Halo with larger prize pools which when you place in the top 2 every tournament except one which they did last year is a substantial amount of money, (is yet to be seen how this year will pan out.)
    • Then there are all of optic's sponsorship's
    • This is not to mention the fact that the OPTIC brand is one of the largest in all of e-sports with one of the largest followings, where there are ample of opportunities to grow your own personnel image and earn extra income via YouTube. hell just look at maniacs, YouTube is is that guys main income stream for definite.
    He really does have no reason to leave </p>
    Not sure about nV or when he was on the team but Optic's not salaried. Great points though.

     

    Also, Formal's a fool for not making use of his YouTube channel. 140k subs and only 24 videos. His latest was in April and got 160k views and it was just Money 8's.


  7. DK is straight ass on not-Dream Land though, so DL-only probably helps Isai in this case.

     

    Maybe I'm drinking the fanboy kool aid but I still think he makes top 8 despite playing DK. If he happens to match up against Wangera that could help him as well, as far as matchups go for DK, Puff is pretty good.

    That's a good point. Honestly he very well could get top 8, a lot are predicting it, I just dont have as much allegiance to him cause when i started following the scene he was inactive, so I like Boom a lot more.

     

    64 salty suite could be good too. I'd like to see: Boom vs Isai, ideally Falcon/Pika. There can't be a more salty matchup than that. BarkSanchez vs Fireblaster: Bark has surprisingly upset Fireblaster many times this year, Fireblaster wants revenge. LD vs Banze: LD earlier in the year won this set with an epic comeback, became known as getting Banze'd. Kero vs Tacos: Battle for #2 in NA--both each got 2nd at the 2 nationals. Kort vs Isai Link dittos for fun. And finally, this definitely won't happen, but Boom vs Isai 12 CB streamed at some point.


  8. Without using the pools/bracket I think

     

    1.) Wario

    2.) Boom

    3.) Mariguas

    4.) Wangera

    5.) Tacos

    6.) Kero

    7.) Dexter

    8.) Wizzy

     

    Dexter may be a stretch as he is coming out of retirement just for this event iirc, but I figure if the guy can beat Isai's puff and only lose on a counterpick he can do it. Honestly DL only is a huge factor for Isai, he is a master at all other stages, undefeated in torny at Congo/Peach's/Hyrule since 2013.

     

    Hbox at 64? Honestly it's not as surprising as everyone thinks that he's going Kirby. Literally every Melee player does due to the limited tech skill needed to win at lower levels. Chu Dat got 25th at Apex 2014 by beating Greginator--upsets can definitely happen. Hopefully he doesn't get advice from his doubles partner M2K on how to play like a bitch. But there's a lot of everdrives at the event so RIP m2k if he were to enter, even. Speaking of M2K, I was reading a fairly old AMA and the homie trys to claim he was maybe the best Halo PC player in 2004 because he found "secret levels". Lolwut?https://m.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comments/1rluq5/ctemp_mew2kings_ama_and_lots_of_other_stuff/


  9. I was a Zerker but I quit. Stats were okay, had 90s in combat and 45 def, did RFD, etc. was going for that maxed Zerk Kids Ranqe build

    . Always preferred PKing at a lower level though--I was originally a G Mauler but I was wanting to be 13 prayer and accidentally completed the Restless Ghost instead of just getting the Ghost Speak Amulet, so I just went on to turn it into a Zerk.

     

    @@Moses_FPS I'd recommend a Range Tank, assuming your Attack/Strength isn't too high yet. There's loads of content making the game more fun, and you're still effective in the wildy. However if you're set on having max gear it might be frustrating as the C'bow after Rune is pretty expensive IIRC. I had this build Pre-Eoc and it was tons of fun, though.

  10. Look out for this kid Huke. He made a name for himself on the CoD pro scene but was too young to compete at CoD Champs. (CoD World League and even the smaller UMG events are 18+ this year for CoD) He supposedly used to grind Halo online and I have a feeling he has the potential to be a pro.

     

    As the CoD kids say, 100%. People will see transitioning to Halo is harder than the other way, but still very possible.


  11. His halo videos get about as many views as his other stuff. Unless he's using some baiting picture/words/names.

    Ehh you sure? I just checked and they're definitely doing worse--not particuarly bad though. I mean the clickbait title of Dropped from OpTic was popular but all gameplay videos are definitely less. Also, his whole channel revolves around baiting titles to get views... Not really a fair comparison when it's working.
