  1. Couldn't agree more. Halo's audience has continued to shrink while Siege's has continued to grow. I love Siege and I'm happy to see it's success, but I'm even more sad to see just how little people are interested in Halo now. I used to play in a war sim community with over 300 active members each week. Nowadays literally 100 percent of that community has moved on to Siege, Destiny, and Overwatch. Not a single one of those people still plays Halo and it makes me so sad.
  2. The overtime rules truly baffle me. Maybe there's some magic insight as to why the overtime rules as they are are actually good that I don't understand, but to me they have been genuinely bad since launch. A simple change to next point wins seems to me like it would fix all the problems associated with those rules. Slayer: next kill wins, CTF: next capture wins. Is there something wrong with that format that I just don't realize? Edit: If I had to guess it's due to 343's very strong desire to make tournament settings identical to matchmaking. In a tournament it wouldn't be a disaster to have a flag standoff for an extra 10 minutes, but adding 10 minutes to an already drawn out matchmaking CTF game is probably out of the question for their design goals. Therefore, they have to design the overtime rules around what works in online matchmaking and then force those rules into tournament play so both matchmaking and tournaments have the same rule set. Edit Edit: I, personally, think that's a poor design philosophy that clearly leads to sub-optimal tournament rule sets.
  3. If the announcement is only gonna be a name like last year then my vote is for Halo 5 Part 2: electric boogaloo
  4. Can someone shut this guy up? He's doing nothing but post text walls about how great he is and how stupid everyone else is. No one wants to come onto a forum and read that.
  5. The meme turnaround time on this site is second to none.
  6. I'm sorry Tashi, I wasn't trying to be disrespectful. I appreciate the work you guys do and also your willingness to participate in our forum. With that being said, I don't think we can really define soon until we've learned more about our forum member's rent and, more importantly, everyone's opinions on the various games of the Splinter Cell series. Personally, I'm a Chaos Theory guy.
  7. I was just about to say this. I don't wanna sound negative, but the truth is soon has very little weight to me when coming from 343 nowadays.
  8. Guys we're getting off topic. What's the rent like in the midwest?
  9. I hate to say this, but I imagine he simply stopped being able to get enough viewers playing Halo 5 to justify the amount of time he was spending.
  10. I had no idea there were so many Team Beyond members in Alabama. What a time to be alive.
