  1. Yeah despite the fact that H5 was not my favorite Halo game, this format was incredibly fun for the viewers and I would love to see it brought back. It was amazing to get 2 guaranteed days every week of top-level halo. But you're right that it is difficult to balance this and open events. If you make it so that you can only qualify for the finals through the pro league, it makes it so that non-pro teams don't have a chance. If you make it that there are still several spots available for qualification outside of the pro league, it dilutes the importance of pro league if the teams can just be guaranteed qualification through an open bracket anyways. If you try to put a large number of teams in pro league to try and avoid the issue, it dilutes the quality of play for the viewers when a top team faces a much poorer team (one of the best aspects of the 8-team pro league was that almost all matches were competitive). I'm not sure what the best solution here is.
  2. LOL that reminds me of the Cabal spheres in Destiny 2... so many nightmares of those things dropping on my head (back when I still played the game)
  3. For sure. Ever since H3 I've hated either being up or down 2-0 and having to play a meaningless round. Honestly that should be incredibly easy to implement, it's frustrating that they haven't bothered so far.
  4. I’m actually a big fan of one-sides gametypes. Brings a whole new dynamic in where you’re really laser-focused in on one specific objective. However, they need to make powerup/power weapon spawns frequent enough to discourage camping by the defense.
  5. There's a counterpoint to this though. If H5 was a fresh IP, it wouldn't have sold nearly as well as it did, as it brought in no new innovative or interesting gameplay. The only reason it sold well is because of the fans of the franchise. It may not have gotten a lot of hate, but it would have gotten very little love either. People just wouldn't have cared.
  6. That’s awesome, and it makes me really sad I had to miss this event (had a wedding to attend in Chicago). Big props to UGC for putting on another great show for us, they really stick it out for Halo.
  7. Damn, this has gotta be one of the most unexpected wins in competitive halo for a LONG time. I don’t think anyone thought Lux would be the ones taking home the trophy. They’re some of the hardest grinders in the game though, so very much deserved.
  8. Jeez BO7 is ridiculous for H5 doubles. Should have been BO5. I can’t believe we just watched 7 games of that and now we get another BO7 bracket reset.
  9. Damn, this tourney is off to a pretty good start. Just had a 5-4 heretic ctf match between Aspire and Fatal Ambition over on Charlie.
  10. Wish I could my friend I’ve been to the last couple but unfortunately I have a friend’s wedding which conflicts
  11. Roy's stream today was great. The competitive halo scene just isn't the same without the Brown twins.
  12. Not gonna lie, when I first saw this I read it as "better start beating the wife"
  13. I’ve been in depression since the announcement because the event is the same weekend as my friend’s wedding
  14. Can I renew my gold for the full 36 months then activate this? Or is it only what I have right now?
  15. Can you explain this more? I don’t get what you’re saying exactly.
  16. “As for what’s next, E3 2020 will be a big moment for Halo Infinite. Until we reach that destination in 2020, we’ll continue to embrace the mystery and wonder of Halo and the endless opportunity and potential of this engine, this hardware and, most of all, this team.” Another year of waiting for any news boys!
