  1. Not disputing that it sounds counter intuitive, but I don't see Infinite's public flighting starting before a demonstration of the game for all to see. And 343 has to release hardware specs prior to flighting to ensure people can play it. It would be odd for that kind of info drop occurring prior to E3, but I could be wrong. To follow the idea that 343 is going to start flighting before E3 and even before they officially show off the game: it would be an interesting experiment for 343 to let the game essentially market itself by just starting to invite people and letting them stream/capture and share the game, but realistically as Microsoft has a fairly sizable stake in the success of Halo it would be a potential risk to try something like that whereas E3 has been proven able to sell products. The other possibility would be that Microsoft is going to host some kind of Xbox event before E3 to show Infinite and other stuff off, but there's been no indication of that thus far.
  2. I would highly doubt that 343 is going to start public flighting until people have seen the game/gameplay. We're not, in all probability, going to see gameplay until E3 unless they've got something up their sleeve. So it seems logical that flighting will start at or shortly after E3 2020. This would also serve as the big mic drop moment for microsoft "you can play Infinite today!"
  3. @Trespa5s Global rank is indeed a little buried. In lobby you can hit X, select your own tag, then player details, in the upper left hand corner it will tell you your rank (though I don't think the symbol is displayed) and how much xp you are at.
  4. I think I remember reading that ZBNS will be a toggle-able option within the settings, we could very well have Bomb/Oddball. Maybe @Tashi can confirm or deny?
  5. I'd be very interested in trying these settings out. I enjoy v7, but as has been stated there wasn't really time to improve upon them and there are issues that can/should be addressed.
  6. If we're going to play Reach, then we need to talk about Penance. The soulless remake of Damnation is not fun to watch, it's not fun to play. 1 team sits up top and camps while the other team gets picked trying to grab power-ups/weapons. The rest of the time is just a lot of sitting and waiting. Please remove it from the rotation.
  7. Day before an info drop, feels like we've been here too many times... Here's hoping the announcement is good and gives us lots to look forward to.
  8. I've seen it said by multiple people that the games industry and the number of people in it is smaller than it looks. It could be less of companies copying each other and more of just the same devs bouncing between studios making the same changes/design choices that they made everywhere else. Kinda tin-foil hat stuff, but not completely unrealistic.
  9. Jaime Griesemer talking about the Plasma Rifle through the first 3 Halo games and Reach, a long video but really interesting.
  10. I suppose, considering we just watched a tournament on a twitch channel created a week before the event with what to me seemed like limited promotion from Dreamhack themselves it just feels like the Halo scene is getting shafted because of this arrangement. I don't get how having /Halo host the channel takes control away from the TOs.
  11. They'd be getting exposure that they wouldn't normally get due to the potential audience that the Halo channel could bring in, allowing them to build their brand up. If the end goal is to build the scene then 343 should be doing everything they can to show off the events that their partners are bringing to life. IDK, it seems counter intuitive to me.
  12. My only real issue with the announcement is that the blog restates that TOs within the grassroots program and their new style of partners will be streaming from their own channels. I think that the /Halo channel should host regardless of who is putting on the tournament. I suppose I just don't really get why they (Halo/343) wouldn't host and if that could be answered sufficiently that would be great.
  13. Wanted to see Rec take another one, oh well. Tox proving why they're one of the best and ... To waiting... At least we'll have something to talk about in a week.
  14. I just noticed that the series graphic has the oddball and slayer symbols (the skull and target thing respectively) flipped. Slayers have the skull and oddball has the target.
  15. A classic example of TS Construct at its finest, get top control or get fucked
  16. 11 AM CT, but it is a Halo stream so 11:30 at the earliest
  17. The ball didn't sit there for very long, I'm guessing Nfinite threw a nade to bounce it out once they realized it fell there or something. The ball did actually get played shortly afterwards and it was quick so maybe Sage wasn't quite sure what happened.
  18. Someone on Nfinite was trying to play ball and it fell into the spot under the stump where the ball gets stuck. The spot couldn't be fixed so MLG declared it illegal if used in tournament play. Should technically be a forfeit of the game but they must've agreed just to replay.
