  1. https://twitter.com/IronGamingTV/status/480171993451724800 Thoughts?
  2. It was never necessarily a "Halo Branded" headset, its just was polk audio ended up calling it as far as we know
  3. Found the link below on /r/CompetitiveHalo, and didn't see it anywhere on our forums, so I thought you guys might want read it, pretty much just a rehash of all the discussion that has taken place here but its nice to see Halo getting notoriety elsewhere. http://www.esportsmax.com/opinion/opinion-time-right-343-industries-support-esports
  4. Did M2K just lose 3-0 in Grand Finals to Emukiller? I'm done, so done.. That match up might as well have been Mew2King VS Mew2God
  5. From my recent experience with Halo 3 while i've been streaming, its been a lot of derankers and people who don't know what they are doing and I mean a lot. I recently hopped on and play two matches only to go 50-2 combined, because 3 out of 4 players were just sitting there, and that was MLG playlist. BUT When I do actually manage to get a match, they are fun as hell, my BR is still pretty awful being as I've mostly only played H4 and Reach, but its way more fun than playing either of them on any day, even when I get absolutely demolished.
  6. I was just thinking to myself today and a thought popped into my head. Why hasn't 3v3 ever caught on? Almost every other variation up to 6v6 and 8v8 has been explored in a playlist at one point or another, except for 3v3. When you try to search low level MLG Halo 3 now, thats almost all you can find anymore and it doesn't seem to bother anybody, so why has 3v3 then never been popular?
  7. I swear to god if they make my spartan freeze up everytime I check the score mid-game to see how many people are down again, I'm gonna snap. Also, descope & reach-esqe menu interface please :ghost:
  8. I can sort of understand from a fiscal standpoint, but still... Its Halo freakin 3
  9. MLG official Twitter has NEVER posted anything. Only Sundance has ever teased anything with his monthly halo tweets
  10. I guess the biggest question now is, what comes this year? Inb4 Spartan Assault 2 :trash:
  11. You know what would be an even better idea than a rep bar? Changing it so i looks like a 1-50 ranking, I WANT MY B.E. FORUM 50!
  12. is it sad that the average optimist now pretty much has the mindset of Lethul now?
  13. Honestly its hard to pick just one, because of how hard it is to compare between titles, but if I made a top 3 in no particular order. Hysteria Gandhi Formal Each represents a certain "era" of Halo and all of them where top tier during their time at the top
  14. I agree with you to a point. We are stuck with a subpar Halo title, and this isn't going to be the one definitive thing that is going to save Halo. To say that an OpTic Halo team is going to do much other than bring back a small handful of "Pros" back, is extremely jumping the gun. The damage that "The-Organization-that-must-be-named" AKA AGL, did to OUR community was and still is nearly unrepairable. This is just going to be a rehash of what everybody else has been saying about hype surrounding Halo for the last few months. I believe that Halo always has a shot to make it back the top, so to speak, because Halo is Halo. Everybody knows its' name, and everybody has positive memories of it regardless whether it be Halo:CE, Halo 3, or yes even Halo 4. This is why everytime there is ever anything close to a glimpse of hope for us as a whole, we go on this crazy feeding frenzy that is hype, solely because we want that top spot back and we want to make more of those memories we are so fond of. But Halo 4 isn't our answer, it never was and never will be, because Halo as a whole has not been exactly "relevant" and hasn't been for quite some time now. However, reverting back to my original point an OpTic Gaming Halo competitive team isn't going to make us all scream "WE [email protected][email protected]" all on its own, but it isn't a bad thing by any extension, because at this point any news for Halo is good news due to our community being as small as it is at the moment. E3 is June 10th-12th, and as far as we know, this is when the next Halo is to be announced. This is obviously going to set off another hype frenzy, and rightfully so because we finally get to learn whether we are going to get holy grail that most likely be Halo 2: Anniversary, or a new title in the series that would be Halo 5, and when it will be releasing. Either way this is going to generate publicity going into RTX on July 4th weekend, and WOULDN'T YOU KNOW there just happens to be a competitive Halo tournament going on at RTX that entire weekend. Assuming that everything goes swimmingly there this is going create more hype for the competitive side, and MAYBE just MAYBE some of the diehard OpTic fans and CoD fans might take Halo on a competitive level somewhat seriously, which may plant a seed into their heads to actually go out and BUY the next Halo game and try it out. This is all hypothetical, and all I stated was pretty much best case scenario sort of situations, but at this point there isn't a reason for us not to at least hope, because that's all the last few of us standing by Halo's side have, is HOPE. Just like most everybody who takes the time to read at least a portion of this, I will being buying the next Halo title regardless of hype, because I just want us to be "The Game" again.
  15. What's this you speak of "Halo 4 Pros", it must be some sort of magical creature like a dragon or a unicorn.
  16. this thread was so buried, it isnt even funny
  17. So when is his interview at 343? Does he even need one?
  18. Is it at all odd that I strangely find this believable, or am I full blown stupid?
