  1. One thing I noticed was how composed Rec was, and how much their skill carried them. In H5 every time Snipedown (nV) would beat Optic/Tox, it always seemed to be a momentum victory, where they would gain steam and put Optic away. When Royal 2 got that Triple-Kill on Construct, it was the type of momentum-swinging play that would cause nV to unravel in H5. For Rec to absorb a swing play like that and seal the victory was huge IMO.
  2. When I was able to watch his stream, Neighbor was doing really well. Very patient, rarely overextending, and letting kills come to him.
  3. FlameSworD (based on his Halo wiki) Possible Teammates: Clutch ToTz Ace Assault ManiaC My money is on some combination of them + one of Ace's H5 Teammates if it's not all OG H3 guys (Sabinator, Spartan, eL Town) under the Optic name
  4. I would love to see team fortnite ( Hysteria, FearItSelf, Victory X, Pistola) at an H3 event. You take 3/4ths of one of the best H3 Teams and the best team at it's conclusion, and a guy who many considered the best skilled H3 player.
  5. There is no asterisk next to the event. Teams coming in unprepared don't add asterisks to events. Carbon doesn't have an asterisk next to their wins because OG Saiyan stopped caring. Splyce came in unprepared and got smacked. In fact, you could argue that the Halo 3 event has an asterisk next to it more so than this Halo 5 event. I also agree with the person above me, it would be poetic if Snipedown closes out H5 the way he started it, toppling CLG/Optic/Tox as the underdog.
  6. What bodes well for Rec is that Saiyan (who IMO is their most skilled player) didn't have to go off for them to win. Kind of like old ENVY (Mikwen, Pistola, Snipedown, Huke) where Huke was their engine and he had to play insane for them to compete, its a good sign that Saiyan didn't go off and they were still able to hang and beat TOX.
  7. Shout-out to @@Ninja for hosting Halo. I know it's taboo to talk about Ninja, but it's cool that he still has ties to the community and cares about Halo.
  8. If 343 is planning on implementing a more traditional Halo game (No sprint), a victory lap of Halo 3 would be a great way to re-energize a behemoth of a franchise/fan-base and to get the hype back up for a new Halo release.
  9. I think what made Halo 2 great was how many ways a fight could go. Get too close in a BR fight? You'll get BXR'd or BXB'd. Go in for the melee? You might get 4-Shotted or Quad-shotted ( god those were satisfying to watch). The double shot gave you the chance to win a BR fight down one shot or even two. Going for it could also cost you a BR fight you were up in. The sniper had less magnetism, so doubles and triples just looked so smooth. I truly enjoyed Halo 3 (I was better at it then I was at halo 2.), but it was a little more rigid in that regard (if you were down a shot in H3, you still could pull it out, but it was just less likely.)
  10. Everyone clamoring about how great Halo 3 is aren't wrong. But to me, Halo 2 was the most entertaining Halo to watch, and for me it wasn't particularly close.
  11. Regardless of what happens after H5, CLG/OG/TOX will probably go down as one of the greatest teams in Modern Halo. To be as consistent as they've been and dominated like they have without making a single team change is seriously impressive. Probably the closest thing we've seen to Final Boss and SnakeBite and Royal 2 might be the GOAT Duo in terms of longevity/Success given the duo's success in Reach, H2A, & H5. I think 2gre is still the GOAT, but across CE (Ogre 1), H2 (Ogre1/Walshy), H3 (Pistola?/FearItSelf/Victory X), Reach (RoyBox/Pistola) and H2A (SnakeBite, Royal 2) he's never had a running mate for as long as SnakeBite and Royal 2 have been a duo.
  12. The Ogres have been grinding H3 off-stream on alt-tags to show up at the 2v2 and dominate.
  13. If Shotzzy's freak movement is based on his skill and dedication to pushing game limits, it should somewhat transfer over into CoD. An example would be TFue, Ninja has said on stream that Tfue is the best at finding game exploits and using them, whether it's Fortnite, PUBG, or H1Z1. Time will tell, but players like him and Frosty have the best chance of translating over IMO, because of their dedication to get even the slightest edge.
