  1. To touch on the whole subject behind Population vs AM players having something to work for, I believe that Halo 5 is a decent game that could be better. I think there are a lot of contributing factors to low player base. My personal opinion makes me feel as if the game is trying too hard to be similar to other games and moving more and more away from the halo that had everyone hooked initially. I'd be interesting to see some actual opinions from people who picked up H5 and quickly moved back to COD, Destiny, LOL, etc. I do however feel that there is a good enough base to see better turnouts for events if they are geographically located closer to people who are within driving distance. If you look at the start of H2A, we saw over 150 teams sign up for initial tournaments while the game was still malfunctioning. I think H2A had a real shot to bring back a solid player base with the idea if it had just worked out of the box without any issues. Move onto H5, I feel that again the population of players playing competitively has dropped since the initial release based on factors such as matchmaking being unfulfilling, radar, autos, etc. There is only so much a community can do to foster competitive growth, but a lot of it stems from creating a game that puts out a functioning game that is fun, challenging, and keeps players coming back from the start. You have to build something that gets people to comeback and not consider leaving for other competitive titles. There isn't much ESA can do about population as this idea was destined to not have a huge turnout from the start, but the small things within the event could definitely be improved on. Hopefully today gets better, and I'll continue watching to hopefully see solid competition either way.
  2. Cloud might be the player they need. Just think of the BtH ties. 2007 - Cloud was on OG BtH all the way up to 11th at Vegas. 2009 - Cloud teams with Maniac after releasing Clutch for 9th at Dallas. 2011 - Cloud rejoins with Maniac and APG to take 3rd at Dallas. 2012-2013 - Cloud and Maniac Duo through Reach and H4. 2016 - Cloud rejoins with Maniac to Duo for Pro League??? Or.... They might just keep 8th.
  3. 07 H2 through 2009 H3 were really the golden years. Way ahead of the times too. Part of me hopes to see Halo make it back, but another part of me doesn't see the possibility with the misses lately.
  4. I remember matching that 4 of a Kind roster in GB and barely winning the series 2-1 and I thought Aye Rab was definitely the best on the team. Would be interesting to see everyone now if H3 levels of competition and involvement were still going on today.
  5. The more you think about it, the more each region had it's own warrior playlist kids who all played together. Florida (Too many to name) Texas (Zildjian and friends) Georgia (Ali and all of Echelon drove me insane until I stood behind them while they got LBR2 at Dallas) Michigan (Lethul, Ulrich, etc) Cali Life was tough here in Indiana... haha
  6. Phaint. A lot of these people were on the same teams together which made it even worse. I had trouble with a lot of the NY scene too. Element, Jordan, etc. I love H3.
  7. -Played Halo:CE at a buddies house -Purchased Xbox in 2006 and Halo 2 -Joined Clan -Met "Unlegit" / "Eco" in Clan (We had to both be 14 or so) -Introduced me to MLG. We'd always Lobby warrior with a bunch of people and watched the entire 07' Season. -Purchased Halo 3 -Meadows 09', Dallas 09', Orlando 10', Orlando 11', Cbus 12' -Stopped when H4 came out -Started again once H2A came out
  8. Cratos is obviously good enough to be competing at a high level within H5 otherwise you wouldn't see different rosters including Cratos continuing to be towards the top. Cratos does however get negative attention because of his mentality/comments and also because he does seem to always be on stream whenever he happens to make a silly play. I think the hate is unwarranted but I am not sure that I would put him in the top 6 players outside of CLG when considering individual players. Just my opinion on the subject though.
  9. Satellite internet - 3 MBps. I would highly doubt that you could play consistently on that.
  10. Verizon created "Frontier" because they were getting bad rep when Verizon was the name for all the services. The only thing that I have heard people enjoyed from Verizon was the Fios, but the support hasn't ever been good and the service outside of the Fiber Optic doesn't match cable providers.
  11. Are you getting DSL service? Frontier is owned by Verizon and when I had their service it was awful, but it was a few years back. I only was getting roughly 12 down and 1-2 up which made gaming difficult along with streaming netflix or other services.
  12. To touch on the post from @NigH4tmare - Transparency in every aspect. If the community is involved in your discussions and changes, we would like to not only have announcements/details in advance, but I feel it is important to let us know what changes/implementations are being discussed. That type of transparency not only helps reassure the community that things are actively being worked on, but it also provides a sense of unity between the community and the organizer.
  13. I personally still don't enjoy all the spartan abilities/movement abilities. I guess I just prefer "watered down" halo like H3. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to get behind it, but it looks like it is in the future plans of halo for awhile.
  14. I just fail to understand how you could go from Halo 2 into Halo 3 and see how that experience grew the community and interest in Halo to everything that has followed and then build Halo 5 and fail to even consider what was apart of the initial growth. Just seems very uninformed when it seems like so much info is easily available.
  15. BOLD - I am with you, but I feel as if we have already used this statement when discussing issues from H2A as well. Hard to stay behind ESL and 343 because I feel like the community constantly helps outline what is important, but they still test/try other alternatives.
