  1. Will Hard Way stop beating his head against the wall known as Ice Princess? Will we finally achieve warthog balance agreeance? Does anyone actually care about vehicle balance? Find out on next week’s episode of Borderline Dead Threads. Featuring a guest appearance by General Lack of Interest! Stay tuned!
  2. Is there going to be another 2v2 CE tournament alongside this one? Austin's my backyard so I'd love to go check it out.
  3. Something to keep in mind, and something I've noticed from people who stream (especially in this community), is that a lot of people VASTLY overestimate their skill level in CE. They think they should be hitting 3-5 shots in every battle when their aim is clearly off. Not to say the pistol isn't wonky, because it very much is, but it's not like it's a 50/50 coin flip with every single fight on every single host. That's disingenuous and not the case unless your connection is just unadulterated trash. So when people complain about the pistol in CE, it's good to take them and their overall skill level with a huge grain of salt (myself included) because CE is a strange landscape. Everyone is the best and simultaneously trash at the game depending on who you ask, lol.
  4. Once you're past like 22-23, it's damn near impossible to find solo search games. I'm 25 and can't find games unless I switch to a lower account or get a teammate.
  5. Not that I necessarily disagree, but I have one question: In what physical state is that horse in that you keep beating? Is it dust yet?
  6. Riding off of this, unfortunately, any time spent remodeling the CE4v4 playlist only going to make the CE2v2 playlist suffer. With the current CE population, the 4v4 playlist has essentially killed solo 2s for me. I also search solo most of the time and after 10-15 minutes of searches this past weekend, I gave up. And since the reset, if I do wait it out and find a game, I'm either playing with complete beginners or someone quits. I can't recall an actual competitive game I've had while solo searching since the update happened. Jumping into the 4s playlist for a game and stomping people who can barely walk, let alone strafe, is not fun to me. It it a strange problem that's specific to these games but I just don't see a world where both of these playlists are going to survive. If anything, doubles (the main reason to play CE) is going to get the axe.
  7. It feels like playing Halo PC on a low ping server most of the time — at least from the handful of games I played this evening. It’s more comparable to that than original Halo CE.
  8. I'm just glad that all 150 of the people that are actively playing H1 get to enjoy the new hit registration in 15 minute long 4v4 games. Super dope. Thanks for segmenting an already dwindling community. Solo playing 2s is no longer a viable option unless you dedicate some serious search time to it. Thanks but no thanks.
  9. MRW my girlfriend asks me how I'm liking the new H1 update: https://imgur.com/gallery/7DgfWMH
  10. Someone in the playlist just told me they were "top 20 Beach Lan" material. If that's you and you're reading this... you should be ashamed of yourself.
  11. I hate that the game is old enough to legally drive and that the same 4-5 solo players I run into in the playlist don't know random spawns or basic map movement. /playlistsalt
  12. I'd hate to label it as incompetence, but it just seems like a failed mission at this point. They're sticking to their guns about appealing to "everyone" when (no one) is really playing these games. It's such a strange problem.
  13. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that because the hit detection is so wonky after this patch, that it affects everything -- plasma nades, rockets, etc etc. I've gotten WAY more push rockets this update. Push rockets being where they "push" the player while inflicting some damage but should have killed them on impact. It really makes Prisoner and Damnation more frustrating to play. Really hoping this H1-centric patch fixes some of the shooting. Games are either a) no one can shoot reliably, which is "fair" or b) half the players can shoot and the other half cannot, so it turns into a 343-sanctioned ass blasting if you're playing competent players. So far it's a total coin-flip in what sort of registration you're going to get when you jump into the CE playlist*. *This has been my experience.
  14. I think I accidentally stumbled into a PMS video.
