  1. When it comes down to it, whether it be Halo or CSGO or soccer, it's not really up to the team. If the buyout is met and the player(s) is/are interested, it will happen. Otherwise the org/team will risk player unhappiness and the player leaving for nothing when the contract is up.

  3. What are people's thoughts on 8 team vs 10 team Pro League if OpTic doesn't make it in?
  4. At the end - "My next one's going to be about the radar system, and how you can manipulate it, and how you can't." I know you're excited.
  5. The main thing that doesn't make sense about 8 team pro league, is that you just had a World Championships with 8 teams just from NA (not to mention a 16 team regional). So when S2 Worlds comes around after the 2nd split, what, all 8 pro league teams make it? Or only the top 4 automatically make it, but you have 4 more spots open to the bottom 4 teams and some other teams that have been frozen out of playing against pros for a few months? 8 teams is a format that makes sense to me if you're worried about the cost of paying all the players and teams, but in the context of what's been established for Worlds it seems to be a big mismatch.
  6. This is the first scrim for new OpTic vs. CLG, but OpTic 8-5ed EG just last night. Also, 2 days after Str8 Sick joined OpTic lost 3-1 to CLG at the TB 4v4 tournament, so it's understandable why people would be surprised that they've won the same number of games in 12 games as they did a week ago in 4 games.
  7. I think it should be clear to everyone at this point that the 9-4, 8-5 scrim scores from CLG don't mean anything. They have another gear that they don't use unless they care, like in these 'smack down the upstart for the first time and assert our dominance' scrims or at LAN.
  8. This is my favorite stat out of Halo5Arena, btw: Where, when you add in the fact that CLG only plays 1 set a night ever (and both nV and TL played 2 sets last night), and OpTic dodged CLG wasting an entire night for them, CLG, despite being the clear #1, has scrimmed more nights than every other team other than maybe nV. If you want to be the best, you have to practice like the best.....
  9. I mean, the entire tournament is a LAN on Sunday, and Naded, well...
  10. E6 11-2-1 against them the night before, and essentially nV 10-3 against them last night: Set Start Truth CTF nV 3-1 DNL Eden TS nV 40-50 DNL Rig SH nV 100-94 DNL Coli CTF nV 2-1 DNL Regret TS nV 42-50 DNL Empire SH nV 100-3 DNL Plaza TS nV 50-43 DNL Fathom CTF nV 2-0 DNL (game DNF) Fathom CTF nV 1-1 DNL (game DNF) Eden SH nV 100-56 DNL Rig TS nV 50-37 DNL Plaza SH nV 100-24 DNL Truth TS nV 44-50 DNL Coli TS nV 50-38 DNL Set End Interesting that you both had the team that loses the God Tier v Denial matchup, first time, winning it in the losers side.

  12. I'm not arguing against that. My only complaint was against Cooper showing up, listing a bunch of shit about how unpopular Halo 5 is, and laying it at the feet of Snakebite to 'fix the game' saying 'look at this, push 343 harder to fix it'.
  13. Straight up - do you think that any settings changes, or removing Sprint, or changing kill times, will make the game more popular? I mean, we're arguing semantics here. My general point is that settings have nothing to do with the game's popularity. The game's popularity is determined by the one console it's on, the genre it's in, stuff like no LAN or split screen or the fact that open circuit or grassroots tourneys are hard to make for H5 or by the lasting negative impact Reach and H4 had on the Halo name. These are all things that no pro, not even Snakebite, can do anything about. The only thing he can push on is settings, and that shit doesn't matter at all.
