  1. watching summit play tonight has been heartening. it looks good on MKB, and he is playing to do well. the MKB vs controller should be interesting, but it scares me that controller might be better just because it's an easy cop out for MKB players.
  2. I voted for updated halo 5 honestly, but it got me thinking that what I really want is just more variety.
  3. Honest question: why couldn't we do both? A mix of 2A and 3.
  4. Can we start recklessly speculating who is going to replace Huke? If I had one guess I'd say Ace, but there's a lot of young talent.
  5. Idk how you'd do it, but I would pay for a way to look live, during the game, at the in game stats that it sounds like the casters can see.
  6. I came to say that I was bummed I couldn't make it to dreamhack or even watch it this weekend but that am loving the VOD tonight, only to find us complaining about the prizes of local tournaments. Lol never change TB. Any tips on how to convince your gf that she actually wants to celebrate her birthday in a convention center in denver?
  7. lack of crowd noise is a pet peeve of mine, I can't help but feel like a weirdo when my gf comes home from work to me chilling with T2 and Elamite and his giggles. It feels really sterile. Like when you watch basketball and lebron dunks in an arena outside of ohio people still react viscerally, but when I see something sick in pro league and react to it it feels empty or awkward compared to when I see something on LAN and can hear a hundred other nerds oooh and aaah.
  8. "Dan to Str8 would make me so happy" he typed in his Str8 hoodie. Random request, but I'd appreciate if a few people who don't mind being brutally honest and would dm me I'd appreciate it.
  9. When was Daytona first announced? I really had no idea it was coming up, I'm just hearing about it 2 weeks out. How many teams are they expecting?
  10. and while I disagree I can respect where that's coming from. But I would like it if we waited to cull one of the few new things that might be of merit for the sake of "classic" halo. Let's start with what we generally agree is bad, like nade hitmarkers, AR starts and radar.
  11. Sorta feels like I'm the only person who would rather start by making the AR a pickup and completely removing radar but keeping movement the same. Imo the movement takes some skill, has some punishment if its abused/misused and more than anything its fun
  12. Can we fire up the Bravo stream and it just be Huke's POV?
  13. "I just want nV to win because they seem to be the team that can push Optic the furthest." -unbiased guy with nV sig
  14. Yet here I am, genuinely enjoying the stream this weekend
  15. Axeltoss has come a long way, I remember him doing the weekly Starcraft II streams for MLG and cringing the whole time. Very good presence at the desk. I don't think it can be understated just how great the gameplay is that Halo can shine through these setbacks.
  16. lately this seems like it might be true. My lobbies game to game are almost always 6+ of the same people. I matched the same to4 5 games in a row last night.
  17. Can we just get rid of motion sensor? The new radar isn't really any better. I just end up ignoring it and it punishes advanced movement. It just feels like a bastardized solution to the problem. If it was sprint and thrust only maybe I would feel differently, but as of today I like: no radar>default>new tracker
  18. Can someone for the love of god PLEASE make a gif of Desiigner flailing in the Panda video with Naded's face from the triggered gif crudely pasted over it. I don't feel like I'm asking for a lot.
  19. I thought that about MW:R but then after a few prestiges I remembered I stopped playing cod4 wayy before every lobby was modded.
  20. I liked this one a lot more. Shorter, less match.com profile fluff and spending more time on what's interesting/the perspective that the guest can give.
  21. First impression of this guy isn't far from what I've pictured. Wearing sunglasses inside drinking a mamosa. Repeatedly talking about being "highly intoxicated" and kinda just generally being a douche. But I do think higher of moneymatches watching and listening to this. Idk if I'll ever like the guy but I can accept him. Idk how successful or popular it'll be in halo, I but I can see it succeeding in other games.
  22. Its crazy to me that 2 out of Str8, Panda, LG, EG, ALG and INC won't qualify for worlds but there's going to be 3 EU teams. Not that EU doesn't deserve spots, but there is probably 1 EU team that even belongs in the same tier as the NA teams that won't qualify. It blows my mind every time I think about worlds. Why not 16 teams? Why not even 8 NA teams? Itd still be bull shit, but it would at least itd be consistent with the pro league format.
  23. I have faith in everyone's best intentions. I'm sure this (while hard to accept) was in ESL NA's best interest. I just wish that there was a way that we weren't held hostage to whoever 343 is leasing their servers. I wish grassroots stuff wasn't so impractical. Shit, I wish I could just binge a weekend LAN party with some friends. Looking at prices, I could get drive a couple hours to omaha or kansas city and get a round trip for for under 200 if I skip class and fly back monday, but then I'd have taken 2 days off class, 2-3 nights off work. And for what? To fly out to a fucking jiffy lube in SoCal by myself where only 12 teams are going to be (only 7 of them NA). It just fucking sucks that these collaborative efforts look like shit. It's literally embarrassing to show someone proleague videos with spectator mode or LAN footage of HCS Red 2 giving the blue team the business with 8 players, 2 coaches and 2 casters all talking at once. I'm not going to shit on this too much because I think we all understand that no one thinks this is ideal. ESL isn't some terrible company. 343i/ Microsoft isnt trying to kill Halo. But the only way we can grow is when people like me can point halo and say "look, this is fucking awesome" to a friend and not be afraid that they can't look past all of the glaring problems. This scene is just a cycle of hype and disillusionment haha I really hope you guys in California (and otherwise more capable of going) do show up and support the event. I hope it's successful and I can tweet the stream without a friend telling me to DL Dota or get on CoD.
