  1. Hi! I thought I'd give a bit of feedback (and ask for it as well) about yesterdays' FFA tournament. **DISCLAIMER** I'm not mad about losing. I expected to, and simply wanted to use this tournament as a practice opportunity. If I won, great. If not, great. FFA to me is probably the most competitive game-mode that Halo has to offer. It relies on your knowledge of the map, weapon spawns, tricks and ways to get around the map, utilizing certain areas for certain weapons, and most importantly: The ability to aim. As far as yesterdays' tournament goes, I honestly feel like it's pretty ridiculous how it was set up. First of all, it has been proven that any more than 6 people in any map is too many. This is even agreed upon by 343 itself, as it reduced the number of players from initially 8 to now 6. With 8, it's literally impossible to spawn without having another player in your FOV, or being in the FOV of another player. This gives you absolutely no time to get a bearing of the map, what's going on, or time to think about where to go. Instead, it says "hey if you don't get a perfect kill you're fucked." The fact that the queue was for 8 players is pretty ridiculous IMO, especially on one of the most open maps the game has (Truth). Another issue is with the BR spawns instead of the AR. Again, on such an open map, this opened up literally no time to think, and instead duck behind cover and try not to get killed from across the map. Which by the way, if you were successful in finding a temporary hiding spot, someone else inevitably found you and finished you off. If you were successful in combating the person who found you, someone would inevitably throw a grenade and score a double-kill. In a game of such intense skill, I find that this requires no skill at all, just the ability to catch 2 people in the midst of fighting. That leaves off with the last, the lack of any other weapon on the game. Was this a joke? If I held a SWAT tournament and said "by the way, shotguns only" it wouldn't be SWAT would it? The FFA in Halo is set up for people to actually have an immersive time fighting people, ducking around corners, picking up weapons, etc. Not instantly being thrown into a 1 on 1 with only headshots and the first guy who misses loses. I agree that Truth for example has some things that could be taken out for a tournament like the Sword and Invis, but other than that.. That's what the FFA is set up about. I'd love to hear some feedback and comments on what you guys think too. Thanks!
  2. Interesting, I came here right now to ask the exact same questions. If you don't mind me hijacking this, a couple more questions for whoever can answer them: 1: I assume it's a custom game deal. Is it as simple as just finding the people you're playing against and inviting them to a custom game of the same type? We just communicate through XBL? 2: Also, if it's best of 3 and sometimes best of 5, do we play EACH map listed? Thanks!
