    Been popular since h2/3. I know in h3 u could set ur preference to local only then set your location to south africa or whatever. Fun to do this and bully people boosting. 

    I remember people used to do this to boost achievements in FFA but I've never heard of using it to actually boost ranks. Sounds tedious af.

    That is correct. Halowaypoint doesn't differentiate ranked / social / custom K/D & W/L ratios and that's the resource we're using to scrape player stats. Until 343industries provides APIs for MCC player stats, our only method to retrieve them is scraping which is quite unreliable for obvious reasons.

    That said, we do have an API which allows us to view any given player's past 100 games. If you're consistently getting 0 kills per game (i.e. ending custom games/circle boosting in matchmaking) or getting hundreds/thousands of kills per game, we'll conclude that you're boosting and remove you from the leaderboards. It's a delicate process because the proof has to be borderline conclusive for us to start removing anybody.

    Gory (the dev) is doing the best he can. He paid for the domain, he paid for the hosting, he coded the website from the ground up. We'll try and protect the integrity of the leaderboards the best we can. I'm far from naive - I realize there's a fair amount of boosting that's already taken place. Having a 400+ W/L ratio or a 27+ K/D ratio simply isn't attainable. The CE 50s that aren't named Xorg or Twisted are likely circle boosted. The issue is the boosting likely took place months ago and given that there is no Bungie.net, we can't scroll back thousands of games to verify that there wasn't any circle boosting or DDoSing.

    Cheating is being looked into. Obvious cheating (i.e. 400 W/L ratio) will be dealt with sooner rather than later.

    What is circle boosting?

    Maybe you should post the mod on some other halo modding discord’s. Or heck’s ask halo follower or hiddenxperia to show case it in a video, I bet they’d say yes. Maybe gamecheat13 as well or vengeful vadam 

    I'm probably gonna post in on the halomods discord sometime, but I'm not holding my breath. 98% of the general population check out as soon as they hear "competitive" or "CE pistol". Also, modding in Halo is mostly throwing scarabs, pelicans and frigates on a map, not actually developing a solid gameplay experience (aside from Halo Reach Evolved maybe).

    Halo follower can fuck right off lmao, maybe we could get Vadam on board since this is in some ways Halo Reach Evolved: MP edition. It's also been suggested to send this to Naded or Vetoed as they might actually be interested in a solid competitive Halo PC experience.

    I've been lurking the discord for a hot minute now. Maybe I should actually get in some games.

    please play we need people

    Exactly this. There was a large influx of players when the mod was shown public for the first time, but only roughly 15 out of the 70 people on the discord have actually played lol. It's really easy to install and we will help out anyone who is having trouble. Most lobbies are happening on the weekends but feel free to just tag @pc any time to see if anyone wants to play.

    Haha I guess the only thing that’s left would be the TTK and movement.

    H2 is weird because the glitches make the idea TTK pretty fast, the movement is sick and it has the best 4v4 map pool in the series, but then the sandbox is kind of garbage and  it has the worst weapon respawn system of any Halo game.

    Isn't it just so odd and frustrating that everything that is good about Halo is distributed between all the games? (not evenly of course) Really makes me wish MCC wasn't just a remake collection but an "idealized version" of Halo that combines the best aspects of each game and then had all the maps available.

    Dude halo 1 has terrible movement, and animations. That game isn’t the best comparison to use. I’d think you’d of used a game like h3.

    That's... literally his point. H2's movement is so smooth and fluid compared to everything else, especially CE. Which is why the suggestion of just copy-pasting the H2 movement values to CE was made (after removing spread in all gametypes and jump delay were already suggested.)

    Just curious, would you tell a Street Fighter to not use a Fight Stick?  Would you tell a Melee player to not use a Gamecube controller?  I certainty would never tell a Counter Strike player to not use a Mouse & Kkeyboard.  

    If CSGOs xbox port was still supported and had tournaments would you really allow MKB? It would be completely pointless. 

    Also instead of banning controllers just give them the same aim assist as MKB. More elegant solution and if people really want to stick to controller at least they don't get ridiculous amounts of aim assist for free.

    Not related to the current topic, but the main reason Halo 3's shooting feels like unresponsive garbage is because of Halo 3's weird aim system, not because of projectile bullets. 

    I don't necessarily advocate for projectile, but the amount of people complaining about H3's BR and not about the aim system is too high. 

    It's neither, it's the garbage spread coupled with questionable netcode. The aiming isn't great but unlike H5's it's consistently bad and not bad and inconsistent on top of that. Projectile is not an issue by itself, that's just the shitty netcode again.

    Aaaand I’ve already seen people in various corners of the internet saying that the bloom while tapping in MCC is a good thing. Saying it’s how the pistol should’ve always worked and that without it the pistol is OP and CE becomes a one gun game.

    Just kill me now.

    "The gun is super OP anyways, all you have to do is pace your shots hauehuehe". Halo seems to attract some real brainlets.

    Idk. Flinch in halo reach is argubly worse from a design standpoint. Spread is meant to shorten the range. Flinch is made for the game to play for you, or cause you to miss, aka same as spread. 
     

    not saying spread is good at all. Literally damage drop off is a better mechanic in every way

    Flinch is certainly annoying but I'd put it into the "mildly infuriating" category, whereas spread is just gamebreaking usually. Obviously depends on magnitude of both tho. I could live with spread like Reach's DMR but if every gun made me flinch like Reach's sniper I would quit playing pretty quickly.

  12. Radar should work like CSGO where people only show up if tagged by your teammates. Maybe show red dots for shooting your gun. Like Hex said, radar is the biggest "bruh it's always been this way" maybe in Halo's entire existance. Such a stupid crutch mechanic and it will always drive a massive wedge between default and competitive settings.

  13. A modder named Krevil has created an MP conversion of Long Night Of Solace which also included covenant-skinned forge pieces. Unfortunately his mod crashed in multiplayer sessions and he nuked it, but I managed to salvage the forge pieces, change the shaders to something less glossy, and ported them to Condemned to finally make use of that skybox. Here's an example map (pic heavy):
