  1. Flamesword's "coaching" is a complete joke. Look at coaches like Towey and Symbolik, they spend hours watching game film, analysing their opponents and their plays (which is doubly important when a team doesn't have an analyst) as well as keeps them in check. All I've seen and heard from Flamesword in scrims is powerup timers and telling people to stay alive, no really useful input, data gathering or leadership which is something they need. In addition to this, he's not even there for most of their scrims.
  2. I definitely do think some of it falls on the players. In NA, you have players that are constantly streaming, interacting through Twitter and playing with viewers/subs which allows lesser known players to get known and increases that players viewership. There isn't any of this in the EU except for maybe one pro player I've seen consistently streaming which is Jimbo and Sneaky/Zhuh for the AM side. However, as mentioned in my earlier post, one of the reasons that NA has more viewership is the result of multiple years of attending LANs and other events which are broadcasted so people become familiar with them, as well as features on their backgrounds which provide a compelling story and drive people to want to support them, which hasn't been done in the EU. This is where the tournament organisers and developers come in, they need to be making these open LANs, producing the content on the player's backgrounds and such to get people into the scene and ensure that the games are broadcasted (which again, they aren't even broadcasting all the matches, thankfully we have great EU casters that take time out of their day to do it).
  3. Thanks for responding, it's great to get an official response on the matter. As somebody previously stated though, perhaps crowd funding could be a solution, though as it's a smaller scene this may not prove to be very fruitful. As I have said though, ESL have their own studio which greatly reduces the cost, so perhaps they could just siphon a small portion of the EU REQ pack sales to put up a prize pool or something, which would mean ESL would essentially just need to pay their staff.
  4. Yeah, Onset has been a great driving force for EU Halo, his old H5 Wednesday customs helped get quite a few people into the competitive scene, shame he abandoned it. I do still like his casting though so it'd be great to see him back, as well as The Simms. I would honestly really like to hear ESL's thoughts on this, which is why I tagged @@Vivi to get an informed response. If they did some of it through crowd funding it'd likely be in with a chance, but again, why should the community have to pay into something the developers and partners should be doing themselves, particularly when they're already doing it for other regions. 343 and ESL must see value and potential in the EU region, despite the discrepancies between the NA and EU leagues, so why aren't they supporting it like they should be?
  5. I love the fact that 343 and co are being much more transparent about events, prize pools and the like, particularly in a much more timely fashion than previously. I also love the fact that there are actually going to be open LANs (though there seems to be issues with locations) and that the open circuit will be broadcasted. However, as an unknown EU AM player and huge spectator of the game and its competitive roots, there are some issues that need to be addressed. One thing specifically I've seen mentioned in the thread in regards to complaints about open LANs is that they're not hosted by ESL. However, as mentioned in the announcement, ESL will be dealing with the EU side of the pro and open circuit. This same announcement made no mention of any open LANs for EU which obviously means there won't be any. I feel this is an issue which needs to be addressed, particularly since ESL own a studio directly in the UK which could be used to cater to such an event and lower the overhead costs. This makes further sense in order to grow the EU scene because the EU pro league has less teams, lower prize pools and the open circuit will not be casted (which they could at least cast the legendary cup matches). One of the reasons that NA has so much more viewership is that the pros are well known which is a result of multiple years of attending LANs and other events which are broadcasted so people become familiar with them, as well as features on their backgrounds which provide a compelling story and drive people to want to support them, this hasn't really been done with the EU and thus very little EU players are known, with those that are known coming from events like insomnia (which have decided to stop doing Halo tournaments) or from the Halo worlds champ tour. Furthermore, while it has been mentioned (but not necessarily intended for this scenario), in order for an EU player to attend an open LAN, they'd literally have to spend thousands, which just isn't feasible even in the 'spend money to make money' sense. Thoughts? @@Vivi

  8. Aye, barely caught the clips as I was half asleep at the time, it's nearly 5:30 AM here. The first clip was to show the question he was asked. To which, he said 'no'. I honestly think it'll be very different to what people are expecting come vision tomorrow.
  9. This. Also, on the whole str8sick thing, Maniac responded to someone's question on his stream. https://clips.twitch.tv/bthmaniac/KindGazelleSMOrc https://clips.twitch.tv/bthmaniac/ProudLocustShadyLulu

  11. Hey guys, I'm part of a multi-platform organisation that have recently expanded into Halo. We've had issues with our 4th and thus are now looking for 1 EU player to join us for this weekend's Halo pro league qualifiers/placement cups and weekly/monthly cups. What we are looking for Must have adequate skill for this level of play, but don't have to be the best right now. Willing to grind as much as possible to improve as both individuals and as a team. Must be able to communicate and know call outs. Message me for more information or drop me a tweet/DM on Twitter @OutlastL3G3ND6
