  1. Eh, I don't really know how the entire game played out and I could care less about the ethical choice of 'to quit or not to quit' but I have a bit of a bone to pick with the argument that communication would solve the issue. No doubt it would go a long way to help secure the cap but using that as a crutch to excuse poor awareness gets tiresome. If you need a call out for information that gets fed to you by your HUD you need to be more attentive to the details in game. No one even turned around for an entire 15 seconds while the flag icon was still out, didn't notice the score hadn't changed, or even read the kill feed that he had died. I'm sure these guys have played the game long enough to be familiar with how common that situation is as well. You don't need to be psychic, you just need to pay attention.
  2. Glad you got it! I just heard that song in my head when I read his post.
  3. I don't think that's true that one of those words are only used. But I guess asking if I was sounding like a fake to better myself is upsetting people.
  4. Really? Is this how I come across? I genuinely want to know. Just as a practice of self-awareness. I didn't even feel like I was phrasing things with a "pseudo-intellectual" vibe to it.
  5. Look, man. Snide comments aside, I get your frustration but we need to ride this momentum of conversation. We can't let it fizzle out, what is 343 going to do with no push back?
  6. Dude, are you even reading my posts? I'm talking about an unscripted dialogue between people in real-time talking to each other with their voices.
  7. Look, you're putting insinuations to my purpose of dialogue which I don't appreciate. I'm not virtue signalling. I've seen plenty of constructive feedback this isn't the first time we've done this as a community. I'm not talking about creating videos and the like in forms of essays. These are static forms of communication, they aren't dynamic like a live discussion which is undoubtably better than correspondence via typed document or YouTube monologue. I'm just talking about creating a space where we can discuss what settings we want. That's fucking it. It's merely a suggestion.
  8. Really? The perfect catalyst to start a serious dialogue about much needed changes has just been put into the mix and we're shit posting. Look, I genuinely feel as though a forum is not necessarily the best way to engage in this discussion (written word is not the best). While it is good, it's not as good as a real-time conversation. I propose that we as a community create something akin to a "formally-informal" discussion. Remember when we had the Halo Council? Can we not organize something akin to this with the purpose of live conversation with great halo minds? (Pro players, casters, personalities) I think that if this was streamed and we had a post-discussion Q&A we can make some real headway on how WE want the competitive settings to look like. We have diagnosed the problem, let's now get some REAL discussion going on in a truly digestible way. Where everyone can see it.
  9. I'm going to be honest, the video was pretty unimpressive. I felt it was more of a vent than an articulate deconstruction of how 343 has handled the franchise. But if that's what you intended the video to be, a venting of frustration, then I feel you on that front. I find that your comparison of halo 4 and 5 to be pretty intellectually dishonest. Yes they share some mechanics such as sprint but it's hardly the same game. It's not even the same vision. A fundamental aspect of H4 was load outs, that has been taken out in H5. H4 had no de-scope where as Halo 5 doesn't and it has a new aiming feature called "smart-scope." Ordinance drops have also been removed, yet another big change. The mechanic of sprint has been altered an tied to your shields. You're just wrong on that point, I could go more into that but I want this to be as short as I can make it. I also find your dislike of warzone to be completely irrelevant to the core argument you're putting forth. It has nothing to do with Arena, it's a different game mode. Akin to playlists like grifball, infection, ect. If it's not your cup of tea, fine, but c'mon man you're bitching to bitch. This is probably me just being nit picky but I feel like it's an inconsistency and it bugs me. Now for the juicy bit. Quinn's tweet. Holy shit if I have ever seen a disingenuous response to a question this has to be it. How is "classic" a loaded term in this context? I mean Jesus fucking Christ if I ask someone if they like classic Star Wars are they going to say, "well what do you mean by classic?" They should know they are talking about the original trilogy. I mean how much nuance is there to unpack? What the fuck. Halo had nearly the same formula for a decade, this to me causes worry. You need to be able to have an honest discussion without having to do intellectual jui jitsu to keep them on point. Fuck me.
  10. I don't think he was implying what Ninja did was justified by Cratos rather that the lack of sportsmanship was the catalyst. And he's just talking Bullshit with his teammates, what's the big fucking deal?
  11. Humans are flawed. The data never lies. I like the idea of applying the scientific method to this, get the data first then draw conclusions
  12. Wait, am I on the forums or am I playing Destiny? So much dancing. I like it.
