  1. Halo is my favourite competitive title by far and it hurts to say but the game is only being kept alive by adrenaline shots at this point. No one is excited about anything, there's no constant stream of information, there's just no reason to be invested in the HCS. There's small little exciting things and then no one capitalises on that to turn it into any form of momentum and things flat line again. Like you I've been following and invested for over 10 years. I've made friends from the Halo community and overall it's been a huge part of my life. But I've stopped coming here as much as I used to because I know I'll be able to catch up on every post in maximum 5 minutes, and that's not a slight at Team Beyond or the users it's that no one is posting or talking because there's nothing to talk about.
  2. To be honest I'm still mad about that whole apparently only 11% of people preferred no sprint survey.

    Film Discussion

    I'm not anticipating much for Bumblebee judging by the key creatives. Director made Kubo and as much I liked the style and enjoyed it, I'm mostly just a sucker for stop motion anything. Writer is a whole different story. I struggled to make it through the absolute trash that was "Shut In" I don't really follow Transformers but surely there are interesting stories from their home planet that could be made into a movie? There's about to be six movies of them leveling entire cities while talking about protecting humans. Maybe that's just what people want from these movies though.

    Film Discussion

    Cheddar Goblin was the real hero.
  5. I recently got a free copy of Halo 5 and MCC when I bought Spider-Man from Target. The sales person never asked me if I wanted it, never even asked if I owned an Xbox. They just handed it to me with my receipt. What’s most surprising is that they have a clearance section with tonnes of shit games being sold for $2-$10 and yet somehow Halo didn’t even get the bargain bin treatment.
  6. I recently heard a radio interview with Dean Lewis (the musician) where he spoke about competing in the WCG in Singapore. I remembered you competed in that tourney (I think I heard about it during the ACL days) so it was a weird collision of worlds.
  7. What happened in the last decade or so where people are against using their mic? I'm genuinely curious because I do this to, but back when I first got Xbox Live I was using that thing to talk to EVERYONE.
  8. I think my problem is that crypto is really just another payment option. Using it as a prize is weird, using it as an option for payout on prize isn’t. If you offer it and a winner wants their prize money paid in crypto then so be it. It should just be an option and not how you value your prize pool.
  9. I gave up on trying to discuss this when Postums replied to me on twitter and disagreed when I suggested those people who wanted AR starts would benefit from not having BRs on the map. I have nothing personally against 343 employees, but his point was people had been requesting it on Bnet since back in H3 and that's incredibly disingenuous. While it's true that people wanted AR starts anyone who was on Bnet back then would also remember the countless threads complaining about the BR. If you can't make the connection that a lot of "casual" BR hate came from it being incredibly overpowered in AR start gametypes then where the fuck did you think it came from? I've been on both sides of these games. Continually being killed almost right off spawn with no chance at fighting back is incredibly frustrating and over time would make me hate the BR too. You could take infinite AR start games and any semi competent persons first action would be to pickup a BR. I can also guarantee that a majority of AR start games are won by a team with a high total of BR kills. It's not that hard of a concept to grasp.
  10. Oh how I wish all these streams got saved and archived from the source. I would actively pay a good amount of money to watch them at the highest res available.
  11. Everyone should just congratulate Splyce on another H5 event win and play in the H3 2v2 instead.
  12. The horse we ride in this community can be quite high sometimes.
  13. THEY BUILT A NEW ENGINE (obviously this is sarcasm but you have to do the whole "this is sarcasm" thing nowadays)
  14. It's Xbox as far as I'm aware. For example you can play Fortnite for completely free on PC, Playstation (you don't need a PS Plus account) and Nintendo Switch. While Xbox requires a Xbox Live Gold Subscription.
  15. I try not to bother with waypoint too much but I think someone should point out to them that there are videos showing that sprint doesn’t really decrease the time it takes you to get places compared to non sprint titles. As in the scale of maps increased to a point that all sprint is really doing is taking away your ability to shoot. It may feel like you’re getting somewhere faster compared to older titles but you’re not really. I feel like it’s not that difficult of a concept to grasp. There are maths problems in grade school that deal with it. “Train A is travelling at 50mph to a station 50 miles away. Train B is travelling at 100mph to a station 100 miles away. Which train arrives first?”
  16. As far as I know it was just a modified version of Bungie’s internal engine. Pretty sure Destiny uses a modified version of the engine they used for Halo too. Someone could come in and prove this all wrong but the internet is pretty good at giving out the correct information when someone gives out the wrong information initially.
  17. Managed to track down the original even if yours is better.
  18. Did the prize money being so high play a role in the salary increase? I don't know how teams contracts work but I do know that a lot of orgs get a percentage of prize money. With it being so high in Halo is there a possibility orgs saw a good investment even when the interest and viewership in the game was average/below?
  19. Could certainly mean either of those things. What’s interesting is that at the end of the trailer Masterchief puts what is seemingly Cortana into his helmet (it could be another AI but it seems deliberate). If that’s the case and that moment has any relevance to the story then if it is reboot it may drop what happened in Halo 5.
  20. I was expecting to see someone from 343 on the stage at some point during the conference to talk about Halo. I swear the last time FPS Halo was featured at E3 was 2015 unless I'm forgetting something. It really feels that Microsoft has lost faith in the franchise or at the very least is putting it on the back burner for now. I know they didn't have much to show this year but they definitely had things to talk about regarding Halo. Although there has been this shift in focus on just going trailer after trailer at their conferences without much room for demos/presentations. It just feels weird that their "flagship" series has had such little presence in their conferences lately.
