  1. I literally just received them in the mail today. I ordered a large, fully expecting that it will shrink to a "marge". I am 6'5" tall, so all my shirts are pretty awkward. They shrink and become too short. They fit pretty well right now, but we shall see what the washer/dryer cycle do to these mother fuckers.


    If you can remember, let me know how much they shrink after a couple washes, will ya? I've been wanting to buy C9 merch for about a year now, but I'm afraid of dumping $100 on stuff that won't fit me after a wear. Appreciate it!

  2. Really excited for the EGL event next month, although I'm kind of gutted that it's invite only. I'm still planning on going to spectate though. There have been a lot of team changes in Europe since TCM split so it'll be interesting to see who comes out on top at the event. 



    Did anyone see Ryanoob and Chig jump to ring 3 from bonfire on the sanc TS game? Can't believe the casters missed it.



    Timestamp, by chance?

  3. I wholeheartedly disagree. It may not be classic Halo but it has the tools to succeed as an eSport.


    Feel free to disagree, but you're wrong.


    We have a better chance trying to fix and grow this game. Waiting for a game that is going to be terrible isn't a viable option. We finally have something that could be workable with changes, and people are wanting to wait for a game made from scratch by 343i, a company that clearly doesn't want the same Halo as us? Really?

  4. I am speaking of the Spec Mode that is going to be included, the ranking system that provides leaderboards.


    The game mechanics is another discussion that is currently happening.


    It isn't a discussion that is happening. 343i has literally come out and said we are intentionally including horrendous mechanics in our game and those will not change.

  5. Halo 4 is in the past and MCC is not the flagship game that is going to pull Halo eSports to the top.  Halo: MCC is just a waiting phase for Halo 5. I agree that Halo MCC is a huge disappointment with lots of issues.


    Also not sure where you got that 50k population from.


    Its going to be Halo 5 that is being built from the ground up to fit into today's eSports world.


    The momentum that is being built is the community. We are currently in a much better position than we were last year. The 343/ESL/Twitch partnership is laying down the foundation for the future of Halo eSports.


    The community expects Halo to be the number 1 eSports overnight however its going to take some time.


    Halo 5 is not an eSports title. Stop dreaming.

  6. My thoughts of the tournament thus far.


    1. Goldenboy is the weakest caster. I've given him a chance, but I just don't like his style. He doesn't have much game knowledge, and a lot of things he says are just plain wrong. I understand he has connections, but I feel like we could have much stronger casters for the finals.
    2. There needs to be more listen-ins + pros commentating. They know the game better than anybody. They're the personalities we are here to watch.
    3. Stream quality (actual quality, downtime, etc) have to improve. Ads are fine, but have something else in between. I actually liked the interviews from the last tournament. More pro interviews, please. Try to get one after each mainstage match.
    4. Maven did outstanding. Very surprising to me.
    5. Denial, my boys! Surprised (not too surprised), and so proud.

  7. Well I'm not buying it. It's hard to know whether 343i actually wants to make a competitive game; what is clear though, is that 343i does not understand what makes a competitive game.


    They've read what we, as the competitive community, have had to say. They chose to not act on it. It's not a matter of understanding. I think they just don't care or want to take the game in a competitive direction.

  8. If they want to keep saying this game is built with "esports in mind" they kind have to listen to out feedback. Unless they're complete liars. They have lied in the past so we'll see. 


    The problem with the feed back is everyone keeps saying " remove sprint". 343i does not want to REMOVE things. They don't seem like they're willing to completely remove a mechanic they've designed to try and fit in the game. 


    Telling 343i removing sprint is fine, but not when that's your only solution.



    Do you honestly believe they care that much about eSports? If they did, they wouldn't make their games competitive garbage. They just want you to open your wallet on release day.


    It's not complicated, sprint WILL NOT BE REMOVED FROM HALO 5. If you don't understand that at this point, you should be institutionalized. 



    Exactly. Therefore, the game will be horrible, so why bother buying it?

  9. Just avoid buying Halo 5. Save yourself the money. Here is the reality.


    343i has two games off of which you can judge them. Halo 4 was a competitive disaster. MCC has been on the market for two months and still had problems. It shows they are inept in more than one department.


    Halo 5 is not going to be competitively viable. People can say "Oh, it's a beta," but games rarely change significantly from the beta to release. Based on what 343i employees have been saying, the direction they want to take Halo is simply different than ours. Unfortunately, that means we're screwed. 


    There is no way (0% chance) Halo 5 becomes a large-scale competitive game. Best case scenario is something slightly better than Halo 4 which, to me, is a failure and disservice to the franchise. That's just how it is.
