  1. snip

     

    Arguing that future Halo titles should also be released on PC in order to tap into that playerbase and audience is a wholly separate argument from saying HCS should switch to KB+M because it's more skillful; I don't think many (if any) people would argue against the former. You can do it exactly like CoD does with pulling in PC viewers while also keeping the esport side on console. If you change it you risk losing many existing pros who can't make the change, and you're relying on increased viewership from PC making up for people who stop watching due to their favorite pros no longer playing or something else.

     

    Remember when the NBA switched to the synthetic ball instead of the leather ball back in 06, which was supposed to increase competition by providing better grip and consistency? The players revolted against it. The end of is if the players don't want it, generally speaking it isn't in the best interest of the league, because the players are your product. Otherwise you're banking on the completely rebooted league doing better, which may not even be necessary if you can get the best of both worlds by keeping the existing pros while also bringing in PC viewership.

  2. If this is for sure happening we should be trying to hype it up, at least post it on reddit with a title that will attract peoples attention. I mean that simple snipedown nade clip got a shit ton of upvotes lol

     

     

    My response to it :lxthul:

    It appears your comment was removed :simms:

     

    If that 1v1 does end up happening I'll make a sticky thread for it on r/Halo, you guys are also welcome to try to hype it up ahead of time. Them 1v1ing on H5 would be amazing.

  3. Where's that from? I've posted a lot of my shit over there and haven't really gotten bad responses except for the occasional downvote.

    It was from HWC day 1, it was either the stickied discussion thread or one of the stream clips people submitted. The whole weekend we had a handful of people complaining about the page being dominated by Twitch clips and saying they should be contained to the discussion thread, meanwhile it was the one time HCS content was able to break through the deluge of gifvs.

    I think thats a screenshot of a mods view of users reporting something.

    Yep

  4. Does anyone know if SoaR is playing with Tapping Buttons or Munoz this weekend? The tweet SoaR sent out announcing the roster listed Tapping Buttons, but everything HCS/ESL has sent out since has listed Munoz and I haven't heard if Tapping Buttons sorted out his visa issue.
     

    Since we're on Fast Food, I gotta say it. Taco Bell is bad and gross and I love it so much.

    The worst thing I could have found out is that DoorDash delivers Taco Bell in my area. I've had to significantly increase my willpower to not get it every week.
     

    r/Halo CSS stuff

     

    I see what you're talking about. I tend to shy away from the customized upvote/downvote arrows because if they're done wrong they're really off-putting. What I'd like to do more of is cycling through different themes with the same format we currently have for something topically relevant; I've been doing it for HCS events (like right now the header and logo are different than our current theme), but I want to extend that to the sprites for the sidebar images/general color palette. So now would be multiplayer-themed, E3/closer to H6 would be Chief-themed, etc. One thing I've been working on is implementing a dark mode and having a sidebar toggle for it, I might also do a greenish Chief one if I have enough stylesheet space.

  5. In-n-Out vs. Five Guys

    When I was in Cali over the summer I did my research and tried to order In-n-Out properly (got a 2x3 animal style with well done fries), for my money Five Guys is still number 1. Plus when you don't want a burger their hot dogs are still some of the best fast food you can get. Also, free peanuts.

     

    Off-topic rant: I rarely (if ever), venture to the Xbox or Halo subreddits. But if there's one thing I've noticed is how boring, visually, both of them look. It's basically just the default subreddit theme/background.

    As the guy who did r/Halo's CSS it has almost nothing in common with the default Reddit CSS, but you're entitled to your opinion. I also think the Xbox One sub looks great, so if you think that's too close to default I'm not sure what you're looking for. I'm always open to suggestions if you have any. I did like the tl;dr, though.

     

    On topic, my only hope for this weekend is that at least one foreign team (most likely FabE) makes a run and gets top 8. Apart from that I hope the stream finally has everything sorted out so there aren't any major production issues.

  6. This is the stuff that should be played during game downtime.

     

     

    Maybe throw some un copyrighted music over the top.

    The thing is they did used to have some varied downtime videos. I remember during some older tournaments they had a Mint Blitz montage (maybe his H5M2), Sheney's H5 Beta tage (with different music over it), and an H5 jumping montage. Don't know why they stopped that.

     

    If it's for copyright reasons they could put out a set of guidelines videos have to follow to be used, and maybe you have to submit them somewhere (like a Waypoint thread) in order to give them permission to use it? Anything would be better than the same ads and skilltacular videos.

  7. I still don't believe groups should be for knockouts either. Just seeds. I just know there's going to be some group fuckery where an na team gets screwed. Everyone should be in the double elimination portion

    I'm more worried about the foreign teams to be honest, especially since it's likely only one foreign team will be guaranteed to make winners, with a possibility of two guaranteed if there's an NA group of death (which no one wants). That's obviously assuming four groups of three.

     

    I know they're not likely to win (understatement), but if it's supposed to be the Halo World Championship then they should at least go to losers so we see as much of them as possible.
