  1. Siege is like the gold standard for sticking with something, even when the initial reaction is poor. I haven't been into that game for a while, but what they accomplished with it is commendable.
  2. I can't tell if it's made my aim much worse, or if that's just that's my natural lack of skill shining through.
  3. "IP Masking" - We know there are some vulnerabilities and issues that allow some nefarious jerks to ruin players good times by kicking them out of a session. This is a priority area the team is working on. Some additional details can be found on the Trello board.
  4. Looks like Halo 3 hardcore doubles is gone in the newest update since all tournaments moving forward are 4v4. Modern aiming has now been added. Patch notes: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news/mcc-january-update
  5. Not everyone shares your distaste for Narrows, Construct, and the Foundry maps. Construct KOTH is kind of controversial I guess, personally I love watching it. I wouldn't say there's a truly bad map in the H3 rotation, whereas H5 only had two decent maps in Coliseum and Truth IMO, one of which is a play on a Halo 2 map. The movement is basic, which is good. Needing to lock yourself into an animation and out of combat just to navigate the map properly is inherently restrictive. Ironically, the basic movement in the original trilogy is far more advanced than what's in Halo 5, which features the most restrictive movement in the franchise. I never said setups and positioning mean nothing in Halo 5, the implication is that they mean much more in Halo 3 than they do in Halo 5. (CE and H2 as well) I'm not going to defend the H3 BR, it shouldn't have been that way, and it's problems are drastically worsened online, but that doesn't mean the game itself isn't competitively viable or fun to play and spectate. Hitscan is superior to projectile IMO, but that doesn't automatically make Halo 5 superior to Halo 3. I never said it fosters positivity through nostalgia, I said it fosters positivity. Is there nostalgia afoot? I'm sure there is, but that doesn't mean it's the driving force as to why so many people are thrilled to have Halo 3 back. Halo 3 was the most popular Halo title ever made, and a lot of people who competed in St. Louis are people who never left. That's not nostalgia, that's a love of the game. For me it has nothing to do with nostalgia, I'm just happy to see what I consider to be actual Halo being played again. Personally I would have preferred the scene to go back to Halo 2, but anything without sprint, abilities, and all the rest of the modernized changes is fine by me. I like seeing the community happy again. It doesn't inherently make the current game being played any better, it simply makes the scene and the community a better place to be around. Nether one of us is going to change the mind of the other. I've been a part of so many of these back and forth's on Reddit over the years, and I don't really want to do another one here. I get that you don't like Halo 3 and I respect that. Personally I don't like it nearly as much as CE and H2. That being said I am tickled pink that we get to play and watch it for the next year or so, and I'm going to enjoy every second of it. Hopefully Infinite will be a game that appeals to everyone. This will be my last response in this comment chain. Cheers.
  6. I'm saying that because I believe Halo 3 is a much more competitively viable game. Better maps, better movement, better gametypes, positioning and setups actually mean something, movement and combat aren't mutually exclusive, no sprint, no radar, no AR's, no heavy aim, drastically less bullet magnetism, and it fosters positivity from the community.
  7. No yikes. Halo 5 was a bad joke, the only thing worse is Halo 4.
  8. I'd rather watch Halo 3 at 100 ping, with twice the BR spread, and half the movement speed than watch another map of Halo 5.
  9. What an intense series and a great win from TOX. Denial completely shattered my expectations as well. God I love watching classic competitive Halo.
  10. @GoldenboyFTW screaming to go back to the gameplay has been one of the highlights of the event for me.
