  1. Halo's movement, particularly as it relates to strafing and gunfights, has been pretty ass from the beginning. Thrust is a big part of the reason that H5 has the best in-fight movement in the series, along with the faster strafe and crouch. Slide is a much bigger problem and doesn't benefit the game at all. I would prefer that the benefits of thrust be accomplished through better core movement mechanics and reduced (no) aim assists across the board, but very little is accomplished by hyperbolic critiques of H5 movement by people who don't seem to understand how the game actually works at Gold rank and above.
  2. I do not, but thanks for the offer.
  3. I think we can all agree that console FPS games were a mistake.
  4. A perfect example of why having "creative" ideas is worth roughly jack shit. Not that Boyo ranks particularly highly even among the venerable ranks of "ideas guys." A nice start towards improvement would be, prior to writing a post describing a crazy new idea in excruciating and oblivious detail, to think to one's self "is this idea fucking terrible?" If the answer is yes, select all and press backspace. The (un)intended side effect of this would be that Boyo would almost never post anything. Which I personally would view as a marked improvement.
  5. Flinch: BAD Hit stun: GOOD I understand.
  6. What truly makes this forum special is the constant projection and complete lack of self-awareness.
  7. Well, yes, but that could perhaps be described more accurately as 15 years of pretending 4v4 Slayer is a worthwhile competitive game type.
  8. You think a game-type that literally forces players to throw themselves at a bunch of overpowered items is more dynamic than a gametype where their positioning is NOT dictated by a bunch of timers all but forcing them to certain areas of the map at certain times? More structured? Arguably. More dynamic? No. Where Halo players got the idea that no one would move without some nuke to pick up on the map, I will never know.
  9. OK, everyone. Back to pure, insufferable passive aggression or else the moderation team will no doubt be FORCED to delete a bunch of random posts and hand out a ban to someone they disagree with.
  10. How incredibly profound. Now just imagine how many perfect kills people could get with no movement at all. Really makes you think.
  11. lol. No. My point is that popularity has absolutely no useful correlation to quality. The Lord of the Rings is the seminal work of 20th century fantasy. It is a meticulously crafted modern (Catholic) mythology that has influenced countless works in multiple mediums. It made a compelling argument for genre fiction as legitimate literature instead of disposable entertainment. Harry Potter is a series of children's fantasy books that transitioned into young adult/teen fantasy part way through. It has been and continues to be a great gateway for young readers (especially the earlier books). It introduced them to a variety of mythology, values, and coming of age themes. For some reason, adults talk about it like it is comparable to more substantial, complex books that were not written for kids.
  12. I care roughly as much about the opinions of those millions as I care about the opinion of your average Lady Gaga fan regarding the work of Bach, which is to say... Not at all.
