  1. This is an interesting topic that I've noticed popping up in multiplayer games in general. Skill doesn't invalidate opinions, I agree. However, there seems to be a direct link between skill and knowledge for the most part. Players that are skilled tend to be more experienced which in turn leads to more exposure and knowledge/education. I see this all the time in the Destiny community. Players love to discuss things that are "balanced" or "skillful." The people that play at a lower level aren't as knowledgeable because they don't have the experience of skillful play. So, they like to champion things that are obviously broken, but they don't believe so due to their inexperience. I think it parallels in the AR/DMR discussion but inversely with Halo. I've seen so many people decrying utility weapon starts due to things like "oh teams that get power weapons should win," or "precision and utility weapons are boring because there's no diversity." These people don't have the experience and knowledge of higher level play where thinking positioning, etc and outplaying people with a weapon bring satisfaction. They just experience the AR hold forward with no experiential knowledge and think that anything above and beyond that is broken nonsense.
  2. I played Reach for two days (in comparison to hundreds/thousands of hours in Halo Ce-5) and just dropped in a match on PC. I have very limited experience with the game, PC gaming in general, and all the settings. But...damn it looks good. Pleasantly surprised how great this game visually holds up to "modern" titles. If this is what we're in for with Ce-4, I'm very excited. Hopefully they get released pretty regularly now. Could someone drop some knowledge on me about the controversy with aim assist? Watching Summit and he seems to be upset about it? Also, what's the deal with Steam achievements? I have all of them on Xbox and the general ones unlocked immediately but ones tied to other games didn't. Assuming they will when those titles are released?
  3. This update looks really great. I like the progression system and having it clearly indicate personal and teamwork related XP. The seasons bit is interesting (and what people on twitter/reddit are upset about), but I'm more curious on how it works in regards to the ranking system. Will we have visible ranks reset but MMR be present so there isn't a true reset? Interesting to see the philosophy on that.
  4. Damn, haven't been on TB in a while and Wargod got roasted. That was some good comedy. Counting down the days for the Reach flighting. Does the new tickrate make the game feel any different? Gotta say, the new themed updates are nice. If you had told me this game would be getting better each update back in 2014 I would have died rather than believe you.
  5. A vast majority of people. Recognizing what weapon a player has equipped is a fundamental skill. My goodness, the PC release is hopefully around the corner. I hope we can get some good content (replay reviews, strat talk, improvement discussion) to go along with these back and forth debates.
  6. What was your issue with the aiming before? Just posted that mine feels very loose. Also, on 0 percent deadzone on MCC my stick drifts, but it doesn't do that with 0 percent deadzone in Halo 5. I'm scratching my head at all the aiming differences.
  7. I'm scratching my head at the controller settings. I've always played on a 4 sensitivity, but now I hace no idea what's happened. Tell me if I'm headcasing: Halo 3's aim feels very loose to me. That's the only way I can describe it. When moving the right stick diagonally if feels like the sensitivity jumps up to a 10 at the slightest motion. Am I crazy? I don't remember halo 3 on 360 or even MCC back in 2014 aiming like that.
  8. I was wondering if I was going crazy last night with spawns. I kept being spawned with two enemies looking at me on The Pit and Onslaught.
  9. Similar thing happened to me. Beat him while I was watching his stream. He then proceeded to talk a tremendous amount of smack, tell his mods to hunt my teammate down on twitter, then proceeded to harass his gf on there. Good times.
  10. Let's go, Spartan! "Ryan, you're awful!" This Twitter beef is really getting played up.
  11. Any of the matches between the open teams being streamed? I've got both Halo streams up and the GoW up in three different windows. First time I've had this much eSports going and it feels amazing.
  12. Man, I've got a huge test on the upper body next week. Sitting here studying stressed out and I see Saiyan is streaming scims. "Great, I can have some relaxing background noise of something I enjoy," I think. Joke's on me, no comms! When did that become a thing?
  13. I've never agreed or identified with a comment more on this site. This whole community is in desperate need of HCS games, the MCC update, and some exciting news in general.
