  1. Hey all, Just looking for people to grind the playlist with. I can play every day except Sunday and Wednesday (I have tabletop sessions those days). I work M-F until 5:30pm EST so I can be on after 6:00pm and all day on Saturday. May go to G4G if I find a group to go with but at the moment not planning on it. GT: Paladin MI
  2. It was mostly aimed at spacechrist. I honestly felt like I was being spoken to condescendingly because of my opinion about H5. There are people here who like H5. I just feel they voiced their reasonings better. My leaving was more a recognition that I needed to cool down. I’m passionate about Halo. I don’t think rationally sometimes when I talk about it. I did not want to yell at anyone. One of my flaws is that I’m an angry person. I was about to get very angry. IMO, none of the mechanics added, besides possibly thrust (and that needs reworking imo), add anything to Halo. They changed the game at the absolute peak of its popularity, and it failed. It’s failed for 6 years. But the guys who like the older style are the ones who need to change? We’ve tried modern Halo for 2 titles now... maybe it’s time to try our Halo again. And that wasn’t supposed to be an attack on SVP or even personally on Spacechrist. I absolutely loved the idea of the group and I hope you guys are hugely successful! I guess it was less what said, and more the way he said it that made me mad. He even admitted he was being derogatory when he said I like “sloth” Halo. It just seemed like a “you’re wrong, I’m right, haha adapt” situation to me. That’s sorta what miffed me about the cancerous comment too. There is a lot of very smart people here, pages and pages of discussion about mechanics, design, etc. Everyone is here because we love Halo. And I’ve lurked here a long time. Everyone who is angry is angry for a reason. We love this franchise and it’s been treated like shit for the better part of a decade. Not even limited to mechanics. Updates, HCS, transparency, etc. All handled poorly. Also to clarify, the definition of apologist is “a person who offers an argument in defense of something controversial.”
  3. I left because I felt I would not have been able to bite my tongue. I felt Spacechrist was being a bit condescending and I can become quite vitriolic when I feel disrespected. Didn't want to cause a scene. Yes it was mostly the one dude. Also the dismissal of Beyond as cancerous really miffed me. I mostly lurk, but I don't know, this place feels like home and it didn't sit well with me. Also I'm equally bad at H3. Maybe our suckiness can combine and form some uber-suckiness that no one knows how to play against. And we'll get to 50. EZ. Or CE. CE is my love. I'll play that anytime.
  4. Spartan V Program. Idea behind the group is great, bunch of players helping each other improve. But it’s full of 343 apologists. I left because I felt my opinion wasn’t welcome there.
  5. https://www.reddit.com/r/CompetitiveHalo/comments/9r4idf/halo_5_vs_sloth_halo/?st=JNNW0QFW&sh=42ed1318 This made me irrationally mad. I apologize if this is not the correct place to share this. Edit: Just went through his post history.... I can’t deal with it. Guy's an idiot. I’m in a discord with him and some other people for 8s. Mentioned posting the link here. Was told this was the most cancerous place. I’m scared for the Halo community. Edit #2: I understand why people get so mad. We watch this franchised get destroyed, then get laughed at by pissants when we try to discuss what went wrong and get told "it's the next step." I love this franchise and it just hurts that I can't vent frustrations without being "old" or "toxic." Honestly almost makes me cry sometimes. It's like watching a loved one ruin their life. Sorry about the off topic venting. Just feel like I have no where else to do it.
  6. A man can dream. I’d just as soon revert back to H3 after this season. I really don’t want another 2 years of H5, unless we get ProMod levels of modifications to it.
  7. What do you think are the odds of them adding new maps too H2A? Pipe dream?
  8. Mobile neg I owe you +1 I only offered my up/down in response to the other guy, I know it doesn’t affect lag (although I was wondering if it wasnt specifically lag but just my shitty apartment monopoly internet). I believe all of the traffic in the complex goes in and out of one initial switch before routing off to each building, and from there each unit, And the same route going the other way. Probably the reason. And there no chance for me getting different internet. The company who own the ISP I get also owns the apartment complex. Bastards. I’m in west MI so I’m unsure as the where the closest dedi to me is.
  9. So now I’m really wondering why most of Pro Team left 343. The overall consensus so far, if you can call it such, is that the game will be open world, not that we can know without any info. I don’t know what sort of impact the SP would have on them, but I’m both worried and excited for MP. There are 3 options: 1) It has returned to classic form and pro team was no longer needed, so they left, possibly to be able to compete. 2) It’s just more of the same or MORE fucked up so they left because they were being ignored. 3) They left for the sake of leaving (I.e. new opportunities, job boredom, etc) With neighbors tweets im more worried it’s already going to be more of the same. Although there was a rumor floating around that they scraped the initial H6 for his, so who knows. I just want a good Halo game man.
  10. Halo: Infinite is a working title. We really want it to call it Halo: Wildlife Evolved.
  11. Yeah it would help so much in knowing how aggressive I should be with fights. I’ve had times recently that I’ll get into a gym fight, I see literally only one or two shots come of of their gun, but the game registers it as five and I’m dead. In those games I just stop fighting people who are looking at me. Really hinders how much I can help.
  12. I wish they would give us some sort of connection feedback in game :/
  13. I get 40 down 3 up and it’s the same for me: MCC and other games run fine, but H5 runs like shit, but it never did before I moved to my new apartment. Idk man but it’s annoying asf.
  14. Yeah it’s the Xbox network test. Is there anyway I could get an idea of my ping to the server? It’s super frusturating. The game is unplayable sometimes.
  15. I really hope we don’t have more than 1 more season of H5. Its so stale at this point. I wouldn’t mind reverting to H2A provided they add more maps with the big MCC updates. That probably won’t happen though.
  16. https://goo.gl/images/cyfXoW Edit: Dammit I’ll fix it when I’m home :/
  17. IMO, they should release when they won’t be going up against multiple other releases with how rocky the past 3 releases have been. So I’m hoping for early 2020. On the flip side, if they handle the game well competition wouldn’t matter. And I don’t want to have to wait 2 years Also please don’t have misleading marketing this time. That would help.
  18. I’d be extremely surprised if this is true. I’m banking on an early 2020 full release.
  19. So what if Chiefs back in his old armor (and it looks like the Marines are in reach era BDUs) because none of the fancy thrusters work anymore?
  20. So off topic, but I cant tell if its my connection or the H5 servers. I pull about 70ms for ping but i have awful lag issues. People teleport during gunfights, bullets do no damage, grenades are late, and the occasional full people walking into walls lag spike. Do i have a poor connection or is this just how the servers are? I havent played in months so idk :/
  21. Are ranks resetting on the 13th when online play starts?
  22. Just started playing again after about a year, looking for people to grind with and get back into form. Able to play weekdays after 6:00pm est and weekends all day. Probably not going to Orlando (short notice for work and funds, would only be able to go with funding) but definitely going to Columbus. Add me on XBL: Paladin MI.
