  2. I'd like to think you all know us pretty well by now. Lets not be silly and suggest that we don't read our contracts, or don't know what we are owed. If it was as simple as going to the org and receiving the payment that is what would have been done(and has tried to be done). Edit: I am not speaking for every pro or every team/org. I can only comment on the situations we have been put in and give some insight to what TJ posted about
  3. I really don't know to be honest. At this point in my career I like the idea to maybe create a name for ourselves and see where we can take it, orgs can be difficult to work with from my experience. But at the same time obviously financially it probably doesn't help us and viewership wise idk if it helps us to play under our own name as well. It just gets to a point where you want to work for yourself. I'm sure everyone can relate to that
  4. It is most likely our fault pools haven't been announced so we apologize. This whole thing has been a process with it being so close to the event. Usually I am all for trying to get info out as soon as possible, but for this situation I hope you all understand and aren't too hard on 343/MLG
  5. Just to clear some things up. 1. Pros have been complaining about the X since its release. As always we just try to do it more in private, so id relax on the "they are just complaining about it now". Trying to handle things privately always seem to make us look worse imo. Just a lose, lose situation. 2. As always the event is going to be great regardless, I just think there needs to be more time given to not just pro players, but AMs to adjust. 9 days is not a whole lot of time. 3. Like heavy aim, I do not feel a crazy difference, but I believe people when they say they do. Let us not forget 343 and even people in the community claimed heavy aim was "just people head casing" for over a year, just to have it proven to be real. I know a lot of people will say so and so is head casing, but trust that professional players who play the game 6+ hours a day and notice even the slightest difference in a pixel on their monitor know what they are talking about. Idk that is the way I view it at least, you are free to think of it differently obviously. I just think that with the whole heavy aim situation we would have learned by now. But anyway, I think this event is going to be awesome and I can not wait to see how the event is ran with MLG. I truly think this is going to be the best HCS open event yet, which is crazy to think with the game being 2 years in already edit: Just because I saw it above. Someone do the math on when it was released. That is how long Pros/HCS/343 have had different opinions on the console. Oh and also kind of like I saw frank mention, a big problem with the system online is some are on it, and some aren't. So every team is not playing the same game if that makes sense. Luckily now with the announcement being for all HCS events, that issue should be fixed
  6. I see my name being tossed around here so I figured id be transparent and just say a few things. We were told oddball wouldn't be added in if every pro was against it, and everyone was. When they announced the official settings everyone freaked out and strong side had told us he was out of office and the issue would be resolved. Since the issue was all of oddball and we were told we wouldn't had to play it prior you can understand why we would assume it was going to be removed. Then we were told it was continuing to be worked on over that two week span and two days before the 2k we were told it was now cut to two maps. I can understand people not agreeing with us, but I thought it was funny being singled out as if I was the one making the decision. Every team made a choice, and we asked every team which they wanted to do during the 2k. Also @@Mikwen can tell you I have been one of the people trying to get people to agree on maps so we can actually be playing it. Anyway, have a great night
  7. Tibby look at our gametype rotations for the whole season. I have lost full composure over here
  8. People can only play fathom CTF and Eden TS so many times before they reach their breaking point
  9. Believe it or not the whole we might switch thing isn't some conspiracy theory against halo hahaha. In reality it is just us answering people who ask us if we are/are not making the switch. We usually reply with the same exact thing saying it depends on what happens with halo. I can not say I will 100% or 100% will not be when there is simply no future events announced at all. Hopefully people understand where we come from with the comments we make. Also we are friends with a lot of cod pros (scump for example) so I wouldn't look so much into what is being said on twitter. I really hope people know how much we actually try to help halo progress. Sadly it is not always an easy thing to do.
  10. It's always funny to come on here and see someone call me salty about a topic, just to see people responding with how I use logic and reason. I won't argue on here at all, but it's not like with my argument I was saying 9-16 should just receive nothing. Simple poor prize distribution as well as typical bad timing on ESL's part to surprise every pro with this info a week before an event. Maybe I'm one of the few who have this opinion, but if the purpose was to try to grow the scene(like that was the actual logic they had) they wouldn't wait until a week before the event to announce it no?
  11. Pretty rough situation. Yes they have to confirm you need a sub for both days(you can only need a sub for one day). I remember being annoyed how I had to confirm and have royal 2 confirm it while he was in the hospitably back in season 1 if people remember. They had the option to play with victory today and basically 3 things could have happened. 1. They refused 2. He refused 3. They couldn't get a hold of him. Personally I would have just liked to play since we just like to use these matches to focus on practice. It is what it is I guess. Anyway, have a goodnight people
  12. Although I get what you are saying I think people don't understand it is scumps job to post youtube videos. He is a full time content creator. Compare TJ to formal since that basically applies more to the situation. It is easy to compare a person to someone you want them to be. If TJ was making probably a million posting h5 game plays to youtube don't you think he'd do it? I'm just referencing the situation you mention. If people are going to post content to help grow the scene it certainly can't have money as the motive. Also to the comment earlier- I get you can say you think h1/h2 pros played more, but to my knowledge of having teamed with a few pros who played those games professionally (at a top level) they did not. Probably played equal to the amount top level players play matchmaking today. Scrims happened far less often than they do now.
  13. I feel like I posted on this topic many many times, but ill give it another go since it is relevant and 2gre is someone who seeing his name bashed in any way is silly. I have one question for everyone here, and I need an honest answer. Is streaming not promoting a game? I ask this because 2gre is basically a full time streamer for halo/destiny(yes he has a right to play other games I think we all agree on that), I've had people come at myself/teammates before for not promoting halo etc etc. Meanwhile TJ and Brad stream 5+ hours a day(on average I would say). The thing I'll say about 2gre is this. He came from a different generation of players. Now a days streaming, youtube etc etc are all these hyped up promotional tools. When in reality it's something I'm not even comfortable using since I grew up in the 09 era of halo basically. Halo has always been about one thing, trying to be the best. Idk I guess I can get where people are coming from with 2gre or anyone needing to promote halo better. I'd just assume people would understand 2gre a bit more since he is the basically the reason orgs are in halo. Which without some of these orgs I'm not sure how well we would be doing overall. He stayed apart of halo even after he stopped playing when he was still fully capable, and still streams a game I'm sure he has no desire to play. Think someone mentioned it earlier, but to me it's not like streaming halo, hosting the halo channel, coaching EG etc etc are all exactly him sitting around doing nothing. I do want to say this and I'm sure I have multiple times. Being a professionally player is more difficult now than it has ever been(at least from when I have been a professional back in 2009). Any pro who is still around from back then will tell you the amount of time and effort you have to put into this game compared to games prior is actually pretty ridiculous. I'm not sure if it is because of h5 mechanics or because that is basically how esports is in general now, but making content or w/e would have been much easier back than compared to now (in terms of time). Now I could obviously go and just upload a game from scrims, but I have been told many times by people on this thread not many actually want to see that nor will it help it grow. For me it's always tough seeing these kind of comments because i watch my teammates as well as other pros put in countless hours and it's not like it helps much. One of the main reasons we went to OG was to help boost halos viewership( judging by numbers I believe we accomplished that, they most likely would have been lower if we went to one of the other orgs offering us). Anyways thanks for reading my monthly long post. Just how I feel about some things with how long I have been apart of this community. Feel free to neg it, + rep it or tell your parents a Pro player was active with the community(gasp). I like to think I see both sides of every argument. Hopefully people see where I come from. Have a good day
  14. Randomly came on here so I figured I'd point out 2 things since it kind of applies to me. 1.Every pro player will tell you they feel heavy aim to a different extent when picking up different weapons. Rifles to be exact. It is one of the reasons we struggled so much online for a while imo because Mat and Brad basically refused to pick up a rifle due to the issue. 2. The comment I made was basically a joke, but what I stated is a fact. You can have the opinion that we halo is stale and we need more game modes etc. I just find it funny reading that when I think of the top esports and what they have. ! game mode. and for league 1 map. Now obviously you can just say they are different and shouldn't be compared, but lets not come on here and act like what I said was wrong and I was like mocking you over it. The game play is the problem overall. New maps and game modes would simply hide a problem we have. A Fhaol Bhig summed up what I was pointing out pretty well if you would like to read that. Ok that is all. Thanks for reading and have a great day A Fhaol Bhig
  15. For anyone who asked what changes I think need to made. 1. Remove autos as a starting weapon 2. figure out weapon placements 3. Weapon timings (Rifles are OP and spawn too often) 1. Which radar to use. Radar in my opinion is it's own topic along with sprint. I don't think we can decide which of the 3 options we have with radar is best when we dont know how the settings we know we want (ARs removed, etc etc). Every thing you change in a game changes things completely if that makes sense. For example: I didn't like no radar the times that I played it in h5(maybe that is fixed with all of the other changes above). Hopefully that all makes sense @@CyReN I was focused on worlds and didn't feel like dealing with any of that nonsense. Only reason I said anything now is because you wrote out 3 paragraphs to me about how you don't like the drama etc. Which I just don't find to be true. Either way I'm done posting for now. Thank you again for giving the community a place to be, I know a lot of what I said can be taken negatively, but I really am appreciative of it. Have a good day everyone
  16. All I saw out of the "str8 gate" was you,Saucy and Frank stirring the pot over and over again on it. Even on twitter you did it. Saying stupid things and following it with "oh how far a joke can go" when you are talking about the legitimacy of a team and peoples actual jobs is not ok. Now ending the conversation on it was absolutely the best thing to do, but lets use logic for one second here. You don't think leaving APGs post explaining everything would be an OK thing to leave up? They announced the rule change and everything was fixed and the first thing I saw for you(or maybe it was saucy) was about how smalls position is a problem. SO clearly you weren't just ending the drama huh? Look I appreciate this thread, and I appreciate you guys creating this place for the halo community to be apart of, but lets not act like you are some kind of white knight in this situation at all. And yea glad you clarified for the 60th time that halo isn't "popping" right now. I talked to Saucy about some of the issues you guys have with halo/hcs and how they treat you and it's a shame. It really is. I just really hope the pushes you make are for the right reasons. @@CyReN
  17. I think he just got tired of coming on here and seeing some of the drama that was happening. If you read the full convo he also agrees that it isn't this negative toxic place to be at all times. He also kind of finally was done with it when the "leaders" or the people who run TB + Frank were talking about the "str8 gate" and claimed it to be joking every time someone called them out on it. Oh and them deleting APGs post which explained every thing to stop "drama" even though they were the ones who were causing it was laughable. When someone talks about TB understand everyone is different and looks at things a certain way. Just because someone calls it negative or w/e doesn't mean they believe anyone who posts is negative and their criticism is stupid. I could make a much bigger post and talk about some of the issues we actually have with some of the post we see, but I don't know how much that would actually help halo Also for the kid above. Frosty is one of the people who are pushing for "classic halo" to be back so I don't think he is mad that you don't like radar. People will claim we are content with everything because of the money we make, but I wish I would actually just show everyone how hard we push for things to be different. Oh well what can you do. Anyways, have a good day everyone. Thanks for reading if you made it this far without dropping the neg and moving on
  18. I think our game play is just made through our work ethic. Idk if we create the meta or anything but we just look to always improve. When we get something down people look at what we do and try to copy it. We have done the same when we struggle with a gametype
  19. I've talked about this before but it is kind of a black hole of a question. PLayers need to see revenue to take time ut of their day/jobs to upload. BUT players need to upload to see revenue. I just think youtube is a tough cycle for halo players to get used to. I think uploading good content is a bit harder with halo too
  20. Yea I would say overall it is just one player getting left out of the loop. Player 1 and player 2 are good friends so the idea to team with player 6 who is also their good friends comes up as an opportunity. It rarely is a decision made fast or even super intentional at first.
