  1. Sad to hear about the retirement. T2 was always one of my favorite pros. Hopefully he'll stay int he scene. His story is pretty amazing and a good example of giving something your all.
  2. Same here. I was getting concerned that my Astro's just stopped working.
  3. Is there an issue with Mic connectivity in this game? Seems like the first game I play mic works fine, and then after that I have to unplug and replug 2-3 times before it will register.
  4. 100% any sort of customizable weapon skins that would support the growth of HCS and other org's I'm totally for it. I've been wanting more weapon skins for a long time. Take note 343i
  5. Just got the MCC Bundle over the weekend. I've had the app crash twice in two very short playing sessions. Once on an H2C game of Lockout and another loading Warlord. On a few H2A loading screens I'll get that jittery music when the map is loading but eventually it will load. I've noticed if I shut the console off in the menus and come back to it the app will still be "running" and if I try and search it will never find a game. I have to quit the app after I'm doing playing to ensure a smoother ride.
  6. Well if someone already got the client and modded it to use on a local system, it's possible.
  7. This is really cool stuff. Some from 343i should do similar for HCS players.
  8. Totally just realized that's Avalanche but in a forest/desert setting. From a casual standpoint it looks cool. But competitively not so much
  9. How did you manage to get all of these? From events or buying online?
  10. It's built in the H3 engine, that's why it looks very similar to H3
  11. In a recent press conference for a Russian developer "Innova" it is launching, in partnership with 343i, Saber Interactive, and Microsoft, Halo Online. HO will be a free to play multiplayer shooter for the PC, exclusively in Russia for the time being. Above is what appears to be an early build of the interface. Which is reportedly being run off the H3 engine. Where as the source says it's a multiplayer experience, it also states that the events of the story take place in the time period between H3 and H4. Visually running off the H3 engine, the interface seems very H4-esque. According to a NeoGAF thread the specifics are as follows: 4-16 players Graphics on par with Halo 4 based on Halo 3 engine Power-ups and weapons pick-ups on the battlefield Rich visual and gameplay customization of weapons and armor There will be vehicles. f2p is about weapons, armor and power-ups Right now developers said nothing about story mode and there is likely the game will be MP-PVP only Nothing is too specific in the article, and as far as I can tell there hasn't been any confirmation from Microsoft or 343i.

  12. It takes all of us to make the community grow. Spectators, content producers, promoters, everyone. I feel like with HCS we have a stable tournament environment. Everything may not be perfect, but we are getting back to where we might have been once before. Very exciting stuff.
  13. Apart from GTA 5 there has never been an instance of where I wasn't able to get a copy at a Gamestop or Best Buy because they ran out. With Digital copies being more and more accessible, there's not a need to pre-order a game. I'd rather wait for it to launch and then get it after seeing some more gameplay. Been duped to many times by this series as of late to commit before seeing the game.
  14. So because OP has a very specific situation this should be implemented in the game? Honestly I think 2 person split screen is enough. With online gaming being the norm to play with friends split screen is going by the wayside. Unfortunate as it is.
  15. Honestly with the availability of internet and online gaming, its no wonder that 4 player split screen would make a departure. I think it's expected that an overwhelming majority would play solo on LIVE with friends regardless of how close you live with each other.
  16. Yet they will most likely timeout or have issues on launch.
  17. I think that the real truth behind in it missing from H4 was that they didn't have enough time to implement it. Hoping it's different this time around.
  18. Yes that is correct, still the point remains.
  19. It doesn't quite make sense how H3 had this, but newer games can't quite seem to implement it. Can anyone ELI5?
  20. Damn I really wanted to see some teams battling on H3, like the old days
  21. Is there any talk of switching from H2A to another game for season 2? Such as H2C or H3?
  22. Thanks for the welcomes! I'm doing Desktop support as well as Windows Administration at a College in the city.
  23. Definitely a great weekend of competitive Halo. The peak viewership was just shy of 20k this weekend. Great for a first official HCS LAN. The IG Staff did a bang up job putting on an entertaining series. What they did right Commentating. I feel like there were a lot of great people who were put in the booth to cast games Graphics and stream uptime was great. There was one portion where the stream went offline but other than that it was solid. The sponsors were great. Nice to see DXRacer chairs on the mainstage and it seemed that the players enjoyed it as well Transitions were mainly smooth, with very little hiccups Walshy Things to improve No disrespect to Mrs Violence, but I would not have her on air doing player interviews. It was clear she was unfamiliar with tournaments and the game As stated by others, downtime was too inconsistent. I understand a 5-10 minute delay between matches and then a 15-20 between series, but at times even in between games was too much The analysis after each match could be improved a bit. I know it's a little leg work in the booth, but a quick re-cap of stats in a graphic would be awesome. Maybe even an interview by players would be great as well Someone else mentioned this, but if the stream could not start at 10am with a big named match, the viewership would improve. Twitch Mods. You guys need more of them, I didn't see the room go to slow mode until Sunday. Also a separate space for giveaways would be great as well. #IGSCUF After this I'm sure you guys will get better caster duo's but Walshy and Bravo are a good mix. I know people love Goldenboy, but personally I would rather see him do post game interviews or something different. I know his talents can be used at other spaces Mainstage in my opinion need to look a lot more professional. It was fine, but I feel like it could be a little bit more polished. Something like MLG mainstage back in the day. Audio levels. Several times the IG HCS promo scared the crap out of me when I wasn't entirely paying attention during downtime. Overall HCS needs more maps and gametypes. Watching three maps and gametypes in rotation was a little boring at times. All in all a great event and kudos to you guys for staying on top of things. The decision on the EG v Str8 thing definitely upp'd the credibility of your organization. Looking forward to more!
