  1. Too bad the patch just made it so I occasionally get decent aim...
  2. So... why does aiming feel so much better on my PC... My goodness is it good compared to the XB1 version of Halo 5
  3. I've screamed more times in the last 2 weeks than the rest of my life combined due to heavy aim and bad servers. My dog thinks I'm insane. I had to disconnect my mic because I'm such a petulant whiner anymore.
  4. ALSO, Is the game intermittently unplayable the last week or so? For me I keep getting really bad heavy aim, I'm getting shot behind walls, and will get 5'd before I can get 3 shots off.
  5. You do get used to the elite light touch.
  6. Your not alone, I too struggle with this. Plays Halo for 1-2 hours, switch to Destiny = Aims like god crushes in PvP Plays Halo for 1-2 hours, switch to COD = Aims like god, still gets wrecked because of connection Plays any game thats not Halo 5 for 1-2 minutes, switches to Halo = Aims like trash
  7. I agree, I really prefer the new radar, I just want more people ranking in Proving Grounds playlist to balance the matches right now its been very feast or famine for me. On your second point, my guess is that H6 MP will just be re-skinned H5 with new maps and a bit of weapon re-balancing. I seriously doubt they will simplify movement options.
  8. So my sister wasn't great at school, meanwhile I was an A student. My parents were more pleased when my sister went from a D to a C than when I got all A for multiple report cards in a row. 343 has been delivering us low grades for a while excuse us for being happy when they improve. Its Halo and like a parent loves their children, I will love Halo whether it is straight A student like H3 was or the C student that H5 is. I do not condone the failures of 343 I simply acknowledge that improvement should be praised.
  9. I'm just trying to figure out what H3A would even look like since H3 already looks better in some ways than H5.
  10. 100% agree! The only way it makes sense for the manager to submit a roster without all players' consent would be if a player specifically signed his playing rights to an organization and a representative separate from the manager signed off on the roster in place of the player. Otherwise in my opinion no roster should be valid until all parties(Manger, Org, and all players) have signed the roster.
  11. To me the bottom line is that managers currently can submit rosters WITHOUT consent from the players, which should not be the case at all, and I don't even know how it could be enforced legally.
  12. Just getting caught up on he Cratos scandal. This simply highlights to me how infantile eSports still are today. It seems to me that the rules as stated were followed by ESL and that the ruling is "fair" from that perspective. One of the problems with eSports is that the teams are so small that in order to improve, new combinations form frequently. Its not fair to organizations for them to be top 3 one event and then their whole team dissolves. The manager rule does help give the orgs a modicum of power, but the roster turned in should be signed by each player prior to formal submital. Anything short of that should be considered invalid. This has to be an oversight by ESL not an intended functional rule. ESL may have thought that integrity would prevent this type of thing or just completely missed that this could even happen. I don't think that a manager should ever have the authority to sign players up for a team without their consent.
  13. That movie is top shelf.... I'm so pleased by this that I will now find begin to auto up vote your posts
  14. Dude.... please elaborate on your profile pic... I must know what you know about it
  15. I'm getting so sick of these kinda tweets.... he says say "Aww... I'm just trolling" but its really childish. If I'm a Halo pro(which I am definitely not) , I want to be as desirable as possible to my team members and org. Any team looking for a player and assuming skill is equal, who do they want, a guy like Snakebite or a guy like Spartan? To me "just trolling" is the RL equivalent of someone who is just an asshole who masks their shittyness by acting like their joking.
  16. I personally don't hate thrust because it does allow players to poke a bit more and chase down players a bit more, I just wish it could be a more offensive tool rather than defensive. Maybe make it reset your CD on your shields like sprint does. I think 343 did a good job balancing it in terms of the cool down and how powerful quickly and far it moves you. It is a million times better than the H4 version.
  17. Rent is expensive, mortgage is cheaper in Ohio $1200, 2200 sq. ft, 4 BR, 3 bath, 900 sq. ft. finished basement 1 acre of land
  18. Interesting point. Do you guys think that Huke is becoming a "Glue" player that happens to be one of the best slayers. Similar to Lethul? The more I watch nV the more it feels like he is always making the "best" plays and his teammates lives easier, opening up the map while slaying like crazy. Also, I've noticed he calls a lot of pushes, and rarely wastes calls outs, he does like 80% small talk. More and more he is reminding me of Royal 2, Lethul, and Snakebite rolled up into one super talented 17 year old. Stylewise, not saying is as good as all 3 combined, just saying his style is a combo between those three.
  19. In what way do they break, the bumpers? You can repair them for like $3-$4. As a mechanical engineer, the XB1 bumpers are literally designed to fall apart. They have two designs. The new controllers designed in a specific section that is intended to flex to make them feel springy(that's why they feel "better" than the day one controller), but the part closer to the bumper gets so many cycles of strain that it fatigues and breaks because it gets brittle. Plastic is not meant to be flexed for millions of cycles, and that is how they designed their controller.
  20. I'm in Ohio, but have pretty good internet for most games. Please don't use this information for evil.
  21. For me almost every day lately... Especial shot registration. Dozens on unregistered head shots lately. Except when I play SWAT then magically the head shot registration is a 3 foot radius around the players neck.
  22. Playing a little Devil's Advocate here, please don't hate me. We(myself included) argue that H5 has less skill gap than previous Halos while simultaneously one specific team won the vast majority of tournaments very convincingly. Isn't that a bit contradictory? Doesn't skill gap lend it self to more predicable results i.e. more skilled teams/players win more often due to their "skill advantage". Halo 5 has seen very little parody. Numbing the game down to COD level would mean that any team could win due to randomness. Finally why might this be, that our lowest skill gap game has had the most predictable results?
