  1. The reason we're in this mess is because higher ups tried to appeal to the ''casuals''. It started slowly, with Halo 3, and picked up speed with Reach and H4. I wouldn't even care about Halo 5 being bad if MCC worked. But it seems more and more likely that it will never get fixed. Side note: has anyone over at 343 explained why there is still only 1 ranked playlist?!?! Not that the current ranked playlist actually matches you up against similarly ranked opponents, but it would be nice to have a ranked Team Hardcore playlist.
  2. I feel the modders/cheaters will be all over that like white on rice. If that's true, it won't be long. RIP MCC
  3. No this wasn't that. No one got booted. It ended the game as if the time ran out. Score board came up and it said tie game and everyone was still in there. I was playing with a party of 5 and no one got booted.
  4. Well that's good to know. ( How sad is that statement? )
  5. Ok, this may just be another problem of the problem riddled MCC, but earlier I was playing a game on 'Shrine' and we were about to plant the first bomb. We were absolutely dominating the other team to this point. Right as we were about to finish the plant the game ends. There should have been 10 mins left still. After the game we get a message from someone on the other team talkin about how trash we were and what not (usual ). But it all just struck me as weird and very similar to the Halo 3 modders who could just end the game whenever they felt like it. Happen to anyone else? This would really suck if they've already figured out how to do that in MCC.
  6. This community isn't what it used to be because the franchise isn't what it used to be. Plain and Simple. Dumb thread.
  7. WOW... lol I haven't tried this solution yet but that makes so much sense but it's stupid AF. Like why not be able to detect the capture card and tell me I can't watch it while I have one hooked up? Fkn amateur hour over there at 343.
  8. Update: Today is the first time I've tried to watch Nightfall since I started this thread. My original issue has gone away. I no longer see 'Buy Halo', it says 'Play Now'. However, EVERY TIME I try to watch an episode it says "Up Next:" and the screen flashes and tries to restart the video about 3 times and then goes to a screen that says "The Halo Channel is Currently Unavailable". I've just about had it with this damn game, can't even watch Nightfall to pass the time. Any suggestions, fixes? I'm going crazy over here
  9. Has anyone run into any issues when they try to watch Nightfall? Every time I attempt to watch it, instead of saying "Play Episode" it says "Buy Halo". I've tried uninstalling and re installing the Halo Channel app. I've tried to launch the Halo Channel app from my MCC menu. I've run out of things to try that I can think of. Anyone have a solution?
  10. I liked the 'strafing' in H3. But I don't really have an issue with strafing in any of the titles except for maybe Reach. However, it's been so long since I've played Reach that maybe I'm remembering wrong.
  11. You'll get your 'new, better' maps in H5 :lol: This is a rehash of an old game, we want rehashes of old maps. However, I don't think we'll get new or old maps. It's funny, most people I've talked to about MCC think Classic is better than H2a ( many even feel H3 is better ) but they are competing in Anniversary because of the ''dev support''. I don't get it. At all.
  12. Where did I say anything like that? My issue with H2a being used for tournaments is its lack of maps.
  13. Oh ya think? However, I like to support the halo scene in as many ways as possible. I'll struggle through a few streams if it helps the scene, doesn't mean I have to look forward to it. Also, I didn't ask for your ''guess'' of what the playlist will be. If they haven't released details on it yet, a simple 'no' would have sufficed. At this point I'm expecting it to be H2a, so I certainly won't rage about it.
  14. Thanks for that link, first I've seen that. I'll be adding everyone on this thread once I get my XB1 next week, lookin forward to gaming with more people from Ohio.
  15. Not at all. Not looking forward to watching any H2a tournaments either, especially if there is no classic oddball. Oh, while I'm thinking about tournaments/competitive Halo: Have they said what the "e-Sports" playlist contains yet?
  16. Pretty misleading to talk about toggling graphics while showing multiplayer, don't ya think? Why would he say any of this stuff, in June, if they knew it would be nothing like this. And to be clear I wasn't expecting any of this stuff to be true, but I'm just trying to illustrate the point that 343 will say anything as long as they think it'll help sell copies. They knew that a lot of people would be watching e3 for halo stuff, and that a lot of the people who would be watching that day will not stay up to date on MCC info until they go out and buy the game. So my point being in all of this, they were never going to make Halo 2 Anniversary as close as possible to the original H2 multiplayer, they just wanted people to think that. So if you were surprised that ball throwing is making an appearance, you're a sucker.
  17. I can't believe how many of you are shocked that they would put something like throwing the oddball into H2a :lol: I mean this is a company that comes out at E3 this year and says: " Now Halo 2's multiplayer was special for a lot of reasons, and we wanted to keep that en-tact. So Halo 2 anniversary will contain the original Halo 2 multiplayer, EXACTLY AS IT SHIPPED 10 YEARS AGO " And we all know that statement hasn't been true for a long ass time. Sure we got Halo 2 Classic packaged into MCC ( which is awesome ) but I think it's safe to say they implied Halo 2 original gameplay with updated graphics and a graphics toggle mode. Edit: Actually after watching some video they actually mentioned the 'switch back to original graphics at a touch of a button' thing.
  18. Man I can't believe how many people don't like Midship... I mean I get that each player has certain things they want in a map, but to hate Midship? HATE?? I may have missed it, but anyone care to share the specifics of why they hate Midship?
  19. Oh I agree, people want ranks. I'd just like to see where you're getting this from.
  20. which requires a TON of practice and skill to master... which is exactly the point im making here. a scuf allows you to bypass all that hard work and dedication and skip to straight to the mastery part. i dont need to claw to be decent at h2, i just won't be able to quad effectively
  21. You act like you can just say, "you know what, I think I'm gonna start clawing today"
