  1. To be fair, Fortnite implemented MTX correctly. Being "stuck" with an MTX system like that isn't necessarily a bad thing because it's just skins and emotes and crap like that. And on top of that, it's updated/rotated pretty much daily right? That's the type of MTX that people love; I definitely wouldn't have minded some in-game skins and stuff back in the Halo 2 days. I've played plenty of MMOs where I've dropped $5-10 just to get the cool ninja mask and Ginsu blade to carry on my back lol. The problem lies in how Halo implemented MTX. "$99.99 for 100 Gold Req packs!" -- Assuming you have those cards that allow you to receive more of the item (I haven't played H5 in about 2 years so I forget the term), and you just load up on Wasps, Tanks, Nornfangs and other overly ridiculous weapons that you can use together in parties of 12... Yeah, that's a system that sucks to be "stuck" with lol.
  2. You guys don't always have to be so aggressive with each other, dudes lol! We can disagree without having to kill each other in the process.
  3. How active is the UK scene these days? I've never heard of FaceIt Ignite. I did a quick search on Google and apparently this is supposed to be like a 32 team event or so? According to waypoint there's still about 29 passes left; which hopefully can fill out a bit.
  4. BeachLAN's are always cool to watch, I'm definitely gonna check that out when it's on. It was nice to get a chance to be able to play a lot of the players relatively regularly when the CE playlist was really active.
  5. Anybody going to EVO this year?
  6. What the.. Congrats bro! Side note: It's crazy that I can't even consider myself a Halo player anymore. I've started as the worst Halo player imaginable, placing Top 32 in FFA and 4v4, to not even remotely thinking about Halo again. We gotta get the team online one of these days soon and roll people in the H2 playlist. ---------------------- Side question for everyone else: Is there anything going on right now? Tournament related? Don't care which Halo game.
  7. I agree, this would be one of those "good" problems. In the Halo 2 Hardcore playlist on MCC, me and my team literally never voted for a game because EVERY gametype is extremely fun to play and it didn't matter which gametype the other team wanted to play; which I believe is the crux of the concept @Cursed Lemon was alluding to. We could just play games and enjoy ourselves in the competitive mindset we set out for. We were only forced to start voting when Halo 3 invaded the playlist.
  8. Yeah but a lot of the times as history has given us with this company, there's not just like one bad map, there's always several. They kept Snowbound, Orbital, and Epitaph (for example) and the like in rotation for all the playlist they applied to for pretty much the duration of the game -- and on top of that there are actually people who thoroughly enjoy the Snowbound AR start just as much as people loved Armor Lock camping on top of Sword Base for whatever reason; hence why they never removed them. If we reduce the amount of times "good" map/gametypes occur based on how much we veto the bad types of combinations, eventually you'll get to the point during your session where it's nothing but a pool of horrid map/gametype combinations. However, I will agree that the veto system should be stat tracked and monitored in some sort of database. I've reiterated this sentiment dozens of times during our Halo 3 era, because I was willing to bit my limbs that above level 30, anything AR start was vetoed almost instantly except by a choice few teams who loved to pick those gametypes for a cheese strategy -- Which were very few and far between.
  9. Why should frequency play a part in it though? That would just increase the opportunity to get maps that are vetoed constantly (i.e. Snowbound, Orbital, etc) because of the lack of quality of said maps. Sometimes its just the luck of the draw that we played Heretic a few times over the course of day. I don't really think we should decrease the frequency of good maps to potentially play crappier ones just for the sake of variety, you know?
  10. Was a very simple typo lol, I would've caught it at some point. When you're just quickly typing out a thought on the phone, it happens. Freaking weird man. People don't even know these people personally and will just throw stuff because they hate them for some arbitrary reason lol. This extends outside of video games of course, people are that way with almost any celebrity.
  11. Can't forget that someone threw an actual crab at Hungrybox on main stage after beating Mango in grand finals with typical Puff stuff.
  12. Really now? For as long as I competed in that game, I've quite literally never seen this until MCC. Go figure lol.
  13. @WildCherry Might need to add the bug where stickies bounce off of enemies if it hits their weapon.
  14. Pays for itself if you play two new games -- This feature was a bargain.
