  1. I would love to play. If you are needing 1 then lets do it. It would be better than not playing at all gt: ccanuck
  2. No disrespect. Like I said I am not as up to date as I used to be. With the state of the game has been in the not so distant past you have been in and out of the community and in and out of competing. If you are back then great! I stand corrected and willing to admit as much. Hope you make a good run in the Open Circuit
  3. I thought he said it wasn't a retirement but "may" compete in the next season? Relegation is for birth into the Fall Season which wouldn't start until after the season finals I assume. My understanding is that the only way in for him to get into the Fall Season would be a pick up on a Top 6 team after this current season is complete or through the Open Circuit (which starts Friday) and try to replace one of the 7th/8th Pro teams through relegation. I didn't go through the ESL rules so if he is ineligible to compete in the Open Circuit then I was not aware of that (obviously) On a side note, please tell me the rosters are locked for the season from now until after the finals
  4. Not even allowed to get an AM team and compete through the Open Circuit for relegation? That is where my thoughts were geared towards
  5. Didn't he just leave Optic and not on a team at all? Just thinking outside the box is all. Doesn't seem like there are many pro options for him that have the same dedication. You never know who will work out and have chemistry with if you're not willing to try. Maybe Naded, APG, Vetoed, Danoxide. Randa seems to inconsistent. Hysteria seems to be negative and hotheaded. FIS, Cloud, T2 seem not interested in grinding. Key word is "seems" because I fully admit I am not as up to date of what is happening in the scene as much as I once was.
  6. Unfortunately I don't think anyone is going help Optic because it doesn't seem that the put in the time for practice. I am not sure who would fit and help change that dynamic. However, I would like to see a team of @@Naded @@Vetoed @@aPG (availability?) and Aries at least run some games together to see if it could work. I believe Naded and Vetoed would have the same work ethic and ability to slay and do obj. However, they both need players that want to embrace the grind and put the work in or they get frustrated. Not sure if APG and Aries are of that mindset but feel the aggressive style of APG and Aries ability to go off at any moment would compliment them well. One problem is that both Naded and Vetoed have tendency to shut down when things are not going well so that could be a show stopper Anyways, just some thoughts as I get a little caught up to what has been going on in the scene.
  7. I have progressively stepped away from following comp halo over the last year. I unfollowed everyone in the scene on twitter (expect Halo, Quinn and Angel), I don't watch streams any longer and stop by TB every so often to get a quick snapshot of what is happening. I still watch large chunks of big tournaments. So as a result I never went to the Hive before today. Just want to say that it is an amazing site! I was big into HC when it was around and for some reason never got it to HTR. I've said this about FS and will say this about the Hive; 343 needs to get on board with what you are doing. There are many people like me that love the analytics side of Halo. How 343 doesn't have Halo Pro League site like the Hive is beyond me. Maybe come Thursday one will pop up. Hopefully you will have time to make a Pro League component to the Hive with things like Schedule Standings Player movement/team change tracking Scrim schedule (would love to see something where teams submit an intended scrim schedule to the Hive so people can plan to tune it. Right now I expect it is very ad hoc and announced via twitch and twitter) Anyways just wanted to stop by and say great work and keep it up
  8. On now. Been bouncing between TA D5 & D6 solo. Would love some reliable teammates. Mic still broken inv gt: ccanuck
  9. I am so tired of playing solo so I figured i would try this thread. Looking to play arena. Currently Diamond 4. Unfortunately i just discovered my mic doesn;t work ccanuck
  10. wow this thread is making me want to start playing again. I pretty well have stopped following big portions of the scene and do a little catch up every once and awhile. Mason Jumping, fast falling and slide boosting I just heard for the first time in this thread. Hope they don't get patched. I'll be trying them out soon for sure.
  11. I personally find the OP's ideas interesting and plausible. However, if 343 would just allow people to fall out of a division or start everyone at silver or gold or both I think the problem is solved. I personally would rather face a deranker than have unbalanced games. There has got to be a way to track a deranker from a statistical standpoint and ban them.
  12. What are we considering as a respectable division? I have a solo account I've been playing on and have been to TA D4 but now back to D2 after a bad losing streak. I am finding Diamond division very frustrating solo because there seems to be a large discrepancy in skill. I've been running into a lot of quitters as of Friday and Saturday (I didn't play yesterday)
  13. I was an onyx solo player during the beta and was thankful to not have to grind through other divisions to get there. I expect there would have been plenty of grinding as a solo player to get to semi-pro had I had the time to put into it during the beta
  14. It is one of those unpopular opinions I tend to hold onto: Forge and customs options is a double edged sword. It provides the opportunity to play the game they way you want but at the same time it can be a catalyst for division within the community. With the option to toggle spartan abilities off, especially sprint, that divide is going to be quick and wide. I am willing to bet there are going to be people playing no sprint, no abilities, BR starts custom games day one. The arguments will start to fly with in 24hrs It is going to be interesting for sure. It maybe the most heated discussions we seen ever in the franchise history
