  1. Can anyone explain how Gears outlasted Halo 5? (From an esports perspective) Correct me if I'm wrong but H5 had more money and a bigger player base to work with right? Also correct me if I'm wrong but the latest Gears tournament had a decent amount of viewers? Fuck me - I see this H3 is a breath of fresh air stuff but literally no one watches it, or shows up to play (see Dreamhack Dallas). H5 was a decent game (as much as I complained) but I really feel like settings, maps and content never even got off the ground. What is Gears doing?
  2. Snipedown - I am backing up my teammate, nothing personal - bloodshots - lethul left us 2 days before roster lock Lethul's girlfriend - yall lost so give Tox respect - sorry not sorry #passionate Lethul - why the fuck are y'all having a Twitter war This is what I remember scrolling through
  3. Pretty sure if Halo Infinite comes out as a typical AAA studio game, buggy, delayed updates and slow drip content then it will die in a few months just like every COD does, EA title, or Halo since H3. That's just how games work these days. The reemergence of MCC H3 is really not different. It is just for the die hard Halo fans. Obviously Fortnite leads the pack in keeping the hype alive, but even other games like R6 stay healthy and dare I say PUBG even has appeared to carve out its nitch in the highly competitive BR market. I'm obviously preaching to the choir here, but if Infinite is just a regular release, hopefully it is fun for the Halo fans but it is not attracting anyone new. I really hope Microsoft isn't going to simply use the name to sell a few extra Xbox's, controllers and run some adds but actually give us a living and growing game. Which leads me to something that I haven't seen brought up here. The timing between Infinite release rumors and the new Xbox release rumors. They all seem to be looking at 2020. I just don't see how this can play out well, but we'll see.
  4. Playing a little H3 MCC reminds of how great the eldewrito game felt honestly.
  5. Not going to lie, kinda disappointed they don't have any apparel for last event.
  6. That ref was making faces all night at sick shots, first time I have seen a ref do that lol and that dude has been working mainstage all weekend.
  7. Yeah MLG might be helping with a few guys but we asked a referee who was supposed to be blue or red on our station and he said he didn't know, just pick one, I don't think it matters.... so there is that.
  8. Bro the blue side definitely fucked... they aint trying to have the downtime on purpose
  9. I try to remain optimistic but 343 moves at a snail's pace and usually in the wrong direction. I am sure they are all nice people but the company itself cannot make changes quickly enough or choose the right ones - here's hoping for the best. BTW I don't who has watched Shottzy stream COD but I'm a believer that he is going to be next level at it. I don't know as a team how they'll do but his movement and shot is something that stands out compared to other COD pro's streams I've watched.
  10. Couldn't have said it better. Must be nice being in the HCS and making salary

  12. I hear yeah, and this is where things are just a matter of perception/opinion To the original question of who will carry on to Infinite or who will step up - All I'm saying is that the majority of the H3 guys that fell off from H5 had the talent to succeed in H5 if they actually liked the game. I remember Heinz jumping into a Custom Plaza Game with his team and screwing around and someone suggested they work on jumps and Heinz literally said he didn't want to. I just think that if people like Heinz liked the game enough to care they would be just fine and overall do just fine against any of the young guys. So to answer the original question - I think whoever carries on from H5 to do well in Infinite is going to be any of these current top guys and the old guys - if they actually like the game enough to grind it to mastery.
  13. A lot of older players from H3 and up were top talent in H5 but simply got tired of H5 and had other things in life going on. I understand the argument that if they were really good they would have stayed because they enjoyed the success but I feel like this list that the list above has a lot of players that were top 6 and top 8 caliber but just didn't enjoy the game that much or how the events and teams were being run. Now they are replaced by new talent but I really don't think the new talent is that much better than them if at all individually - mentally they were just brain dead from H5. Remember old Optic with Maniac and Flamesword? They got regulated and those two were obviously not that thrilled with the game, however, they managed to beat any of the incoming ams trying to take their spot.
