  1. I never understood what hitscan with travel time meant. Is it just a hard coded value like "make the bullet hit the target after 0.1 seconds, but still hit the target that was pointed at when the trigger was pulled"? I'm having a hard time figuring it out.
  2. I'm just looking more into this now. For what you would do, I would assume between the panels, VR stuff, and laser tag that could easily eat a few hours of your day. If you want to go to a panel or two, and go to one of their community meetups they have there, I could see you getting a full day. Different panels on different days, maybe a tournament one day, I think I can see this working, I don't think it necessarily appeals to our demographic but I could see somebody spending a couple days there. I think the most interesting part is that the first Halo Outpost is a few weeks after E3 ends. And on the site it says they have "over 200 game stations" and will have the "latest playable game releases". I like lanning as much as the next guy, maybe even more. But with VR and chances to meet the developers and some crazy marketplace and a mini Halo museum, are you really going to sit down and play MCC and Halo Wars 2 with a bunch of strangers? Or will they announce that Halo Infinite will be playable for the first time at Halo Outpost events and they will have some sort of mini tournament or award for participating? I wouldn't fly to one of these personally, but I could see it making a decent day trip if there was one closer to me.
  3. I don't know where else to put this so I guess I'll put it here.
  4. This Puckett LAN is so cool, gives me Summit vibes. Their caster section is almost a complete ripoff, in a good way. Listening to Puckett and Sundance interview Walshy about people he influenced or influenced him, thoughts on game design, hearing everyone talk about the old days. I really hope they upload the VOD of this somewhere. If you have the chance to tune in this weekend, especially if Sundance and Puckett are on mics, I'd really suggest it.
  5. I was just talking about this with a couple people. What if the campaign had RPG elements, you start off as a base spartan and slowly unlock spartan abilities and upgrade your spartan bit by bit. Think almost like Metroid, but probably less exploration. For multiplayer, arena is base spartans, no upgrades, equal starts, no spartan abilities. For warzone, you play with your campaign spartan, maybe you can even get warzone unlocks while playing campaign and either use them in campaign or warzone. Dumb thought, decent idea, what do you think?
  6. My guess is a release date for server browser.
  7. I'm actually curious, what's your favorite Halo? I hear you talk up H5 and talk down H3 a lot, which I actually think is justified. I can guess you don't like H1. But which one is your favorite? And I'm with Nick. I'll mess around with H2 a fair amount, H2A occasionally, and I'll still play H5. But I still play H1 most times hoping I get a good match.
  8. I tried playing matchmaking a couple nights ago and was losing my mind trying to hit people. I've heard some people say it felt improved, I don't think it got worse but it definitely hasn't improved for me either.
  9. For H5 we were all on the same network in the open bracket area, during warmup we even had issues with people accidentally joining our station mid-game but I believe they had that figured out by the time the tournament started. I may have gotten first rounded so I wasn't around long enough to see it happen to anybody else... I can't speak for the H3 2v2 but I can't imagine it was different. I beliebe main stage and featured stations were on a separate network though. Technically once things are setup, you wouldn't need to be backing out of lobbies so no need need to scroll through other lobbies.
  10. Sorry to hear things were rough from a stream perspective for H3. I didn't watch a lot of Halo 3 this weekend, but to my understanding talking to others the live event experience was top notch. I was close to the Halo CE setups for most of the weekend and had a blast, thanks to everybody who played some games with me this weekend. Had some close games, and definitely a few devastating losses but hey I had a good time. Hard Way is an animal, I have no idea how he casted so many series back to back. Sandman is still the GOAT and is a magician with a camera. And I'm happy to report, we were easily the most toxic there. It was fun everybody and I'm sorry to those we missed in the community photo.
  11. Not much of a story, also I don't think it was Grim I believe it was David Ellis. I don't remember the exact tweet, but when Neighbor tweeted saying he was leaving 343 he ended the tweet with #ClassicHaloFan. A 343 employee tweeted shortly after (within 24 hours I believe) saying something along the lines of "Careful, it's a small industry" and then a gif of a cartoon lighting a bridge on fire. Same employee later said it wasn't about Neighbor.
  12. I'm like a five minute walk from you once I actually get to my hotel. Trying to get out of the airport now but I'm waiting for a guy I'm splitting a cab with.
  13. I'm down to grab dinner or something tonight if anybody is around. I'd prefer to stay close to the venue since my roommate for the weekend doesn't land until a couple hours after me. I'm supposed to land at 5:30, to my understanding it takes a little while to get to the venue though.
  14. We do have rosters? All rosters that are seeded are in the link below. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kYYR4piLzpYrI5-RCyW72nOge0mEUprnIYQMxqo51K4/edit?usp=drivesdk
