  1. These are three of my favorite map choices from the selection. I would really love to see Orion KotH used. Regret Bomb would be pretty cool too. Complexion looks crazy, but I like it. That other map, Athelon I think it is called, also looks good. I really really really really hope these get picked up!


    Yea I think Regret could be really awesome for Assault and also CTF.

  2. Top 3 maps from this list (from a viewers standpoint, considering I still haven't bought an Xbox One):


    1. Regret - This maps look really cool and seem like it would be fun to watch pros play on. The pallet actually uses pieces that look decent together, and the map look like it was made well. Some of the other maps seemed to have a few design flaws and they didn't flow together as good as this one did. I can see some aspects of many maps working together to make this one, i.e. top mid reminds me of warlock's top mid, the bridges connecting the bases look like mini versions of the giant bridge from narrows, the drop into the ocean to your imminent death like many maps in the Halo games. This map is easily number one in my list.


    2. Orion - Orion is basically a remake from Halo 3, The map was in Halo 4, and it seems the version in this game is just like the one from Halo 4. Although the map plays well in Halo 4, it looks too big and open for H2A. I would suggest a slightly smaller version of this map or to at least add more cover, since your spartans won't be sprinting across the map and behind a wall in .5 seconds.If either of those could be added, or both, this map would be a lot better for competitive play, in my opinion.


    3. Complexion - This map has a very intricate design that feels new and refreshing to me. With the multitude of levels to battle on, it could definitely provide some cool gunplay and tricks that would make for some memorable moments in competitive Halo. Although I could never see it being used for anything other than slayer, it is worth a shot. 


    Other thoughts: All the other maps seemed cool, but I don't think they are cut out to be in competitive play as much as these three. Midship is a really fun style of map (I say style because it has inspired so many forge maps), but I think we need a break from it considering it will be in Halo 5 as well. Beaver Creek would be cool but if there are any performance issues for it, then that would be a no go for me. The rest of the maps were alright, but they just seemed to big and open for H2A. It seems to me that a lot of these maps are still being designed with sprint in mind, and people should remember that this isn't Halo 4 anymore. All of these maps, including my top 3, could always be altered slightly in forge to be improved. 


    Peace and love, Hunky

  3. What about lines that follow a grenade's trajectory, like in CS GO? Perhaps there could be a small indicator for where the player was looking when he threw the nade, which could make it a bit easier to learn nade spots.

    I like this idea a lot. The nade trails in cs go are really cool and that would be a cool thing to see in Halo.

  4. So the spectator mode in H5 beta announcement says that we will be able to try it out? I've only ever followed Halo so I've never actually seen what a spectator mode does, but I thought it was just something for castors to use at events?

    it is a tool used for casters, but its a really good tool for even watching pros play, or even friends. It just makes the viewing experience a whole lot better and easier all around. It's great for casters and tournaments though because you wouldn't need to set up 8 capture cards and software to watch a halo tourney. With spectator modes, the casters can easily flip through players and talk about whats happening as they please. It's a really important tool for live tournaments that halo doesn't have and needs.

  5. i think if 343 really works hard at it, they can have one of the most killer spectator modes ever. With the halo channel being added in, watching tournaments from your computer could be super bad ass. Everything mentioned so far could be implemented, but without cluttering the screen. So we could get the entire players POV and all the little info and specs and timers would be offscreen to the side or below or whatever.

  6. I am 15 and my first competitive game was Halo 4. I know i missed all the good stuff from the past, but that doesn't mean more great things can come from Halo in the future and I want to be ready. I play it a lot and stream almost everyday at twitch.tv/hunky_hombre . If anyone would want to play with me or teach me than that would be sick! I am trying to get my name out there and i hope to be a top competitor in Halo or any other game at one point or another. If you are interested in this than message me on XBL at 'Hunky Hombre' or on twitter, @HunkyHombre


    Thanks :ghost:

  7. I want to start streaming in HD to Twitch and uploading to YouTube, but I am sick of using my below standard definition Dazzle! I have my mind set on the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle, but it is very picky on the things it need in a computer to work. I have some ideas on what i want to get, but I don't know much about computers or building them since this will be my first. I am planning on purchasing everything from newegg.com only. I mostly need help  to know if everything is compatible with each other so i don't end up buying it and finding out it doesn't work. Also some suggestions to specific product and some links to  them. Money is not the biggest issue but i don't want to spend over 1,500 dollars. If i could please get some help, that would be awesome!
