  1. I vote Pistol. My first issue with having BR or DMR starts is that movement starts to become an issue. If you have to win a difficult mid/long range battle to get the BR/DMR then you've EARNED the ability to have easier kills. The accuracy stats only mean that Snipedown has done that very thing and it poppin away at his pistol-wielding adversaries keeping them at bay. The sandbox is balanced around map movement and item placement. If you no longer make certain routes necessary to obtain better weapons/power ups then it breaks a lot of what the game was designed around. My second issue with the BR/DMR starts is that it makes aiming and getting shots in opponents too easy. One of the foundation aspects of competitive Halo since the beginning was having a fighting chance off spawn and not necessarily having an easy to use utility weapon. The pistol in H5 fills the role of utility weapon in the best sense of the term as it's never going to be the BEST choice in any engagement, but it'll still give you a fighting chance against an opponent who is using a stronger weapon like a BR/DMR. You're going to lose a lot of those battles due to the increased AA/Bullet magnetism but overall it makes kills more satisfying and brings back the "clutch" aspect of gunfights which have been less then satisfying in Halo titles in recent times.
  2. Looks like the game had your snipe on his left shoulder. I Shadowplay'd your gif and slow motioned it. CE on MCC does that sometimes...makes you miss for no reason. #JustAsYouRememberIt

    Not sure if it's true about ALL SSD's but a lot of them actually get faster the higher the capacity is due to more memory banks to stripe data from.
  4. Very nice. I did good for the most part. Cheers m8!
  5. I'll be straight, here. Is there a more cost-effective solution than this for Halo CE capturing with decent enough quality? Capture Card that accepts component video input: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815100171 Component A/V cable: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-HD-Component-AV-Cable-for-Original-Xbox-/331534780535?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d31034877 Component Video Coupler: http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-RCA-Component-Video-Cable-Joiner-Coupler-Adapter-/161588424809?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item259f6bb069 Component Video Splitter: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Monoprice-3-RCA-RGB-RG-59-u-Component-Video-Splitter-102848-/131415252053?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e98f59c55 Component Video Cable: http://www.ebay.com/itm/6FT-COMPONENT-VIDEO-CABLE-WITH-AUDIO-5-RCA-HDTV-DVD-VCR-/120573199187?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c12b90353 The reason for all the splitting and coupling is so the TV can have an unmolested feed that don't have any input lag.
  6. I get to LAN OG with these guys on Friday. Should be fun.
  7. Mother%*&%(** bull%&*^ right here. I hope all you "it doesn't feel like OG" girls(who wrote comments stating it) are happy now that it's easier than Halo 2 and Halo 3 again. Of course the last patch didn't "feel" like OG, but it was a LOT better than what we have with this reverted aim assistance, competition-wise. Now it's Halo 2/CoD where whoever shoots first wins the gunfight. Think more progressively and leave fleeting nostalgia behind.
  8. Doesn't matter, the masses are going to buy a Treyarch CoD game this fall regardless because it's easier to jump into and do well. Not to mention all of their friends probably will as well. There was a time for Halo, and that gaming generation has passed. The majority of the modern gaming population doesn't want a hardcore game that rewards skill, they want a game that anybody can get clips in. Developers and publishers know this. That's why Halo has a lower individual skill gap nowadays. Speaking of the skill gap, I myself identify as primarily a Halo CE player because I like the gameplay and the mechanics even at a basic level.. It functions intuitively and gunfights are fun and exciting. Exactly what I like in an FPS. Not everybody is like me and that's okay. But I will admit that some of the later Halo's DID have a skill gap and that was teamwork and mechanics.
  9. I just want tighter spread and a very small bullet magnetism buff on the pistol. It's not consistent as it could be right now, but I'm loving finally having the ability to out pistol a bad player with overshield, or a bad player with inviz. Not to mention the few times I out pistol'd one guy, then turned on his teammate. Also, sniping is now a lot better too because randys can't pick it up and use it for easy kills anymore. TL;DR Although it's not perfect in it's current state, the game actually rewards players who work hard for every kill.
  10. It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great.
  11. If they increased the magnetism maybe 10% it would be something I could get used to. Even though it's not 100% OG, it's starting to create a gap again which wasn't resent before. It's was frustrating getting 3'd so much before now it has the pace back.
  12. I'm with Vinny on this one it's better than before. I think aiming magnetism could go up a smudge and bullet mag could be like 20% of what it was last patch. Then it'll be good. This is a lot better because now there is a shooting skill gap between mediocre and great players.
  13. 343i are snake-oil salesmen. They need devs that are as talented and creative as their marketing team. Or even half as talented.
  14. Halo cannot be saved. They had everything going for them this time and they completely choked. What was going for them? Let's see here: -A CoD game that polarized their own community. Those could have been fresh members of a revitalized Halo community. -They had some pro's working for them. -The advantage of being a second year Xbox exclusive. -XB1's finally came down in price due to making the Kinect's optional. -They didn't design most of the games in this compilation, they just had to deliver working versions of other people's work. -XB1 supports cloud servers. -The controller is fairly strong with an exception of the dead zone. -Halo CE over XBL! This year will be rougher for them. There are a LOT of good games coming out this fall plus it's against a Treyarch CoD game. Treyarch's janitors are better at making games than 343's employees. (LoLs) Plus if this is a black eye than Halo 4 must've been a slap in the face. H5's gonna be the cheating girlfriend and drug problem. Basically nothing but JAIL for 343 until they get replaced/disbanded or Halo gets the axe forever from M$.
