Halo World Championship 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

EGs practice the past week has definitely been on the lower end of what I'm used to seeing from them in terms of time put in and focus.

 

I'm glad they got handled tonight. Need to step up before regionals.

 

CLG is definitely the most impressive team right now if we're looking solely at practice. Handedly winning scrims every night.

And if you actually watch someone of CLG streaming, they look so calm and confident as a unit. They are just performing extremely well, taking no half measures, and most of all are very prepared.

So is the prize pool really going to be increased again? I figured they would leave at where it is now. I always thought anything they have made since they last announced the increase to $2 million was going to be put in next years Prize Pool. 

 

What are the chances that microsoft throws in another $1 million for next season? And you've gotta assume that the money they make from Req packs gets smaller and smaller the longer the games been out just due to a natural attrition rate of casual Halo players going to different games. So the money they have been making since January or so with Req packs I thought would go towards next years prize pool.

 

Just my thoughts, I'd love to be proved wrong. If we could hit $2.5 million that'd be SICK! Imagine what @@LethuL could do with all that money. He could literally buy Ace and make him his butler. I just wan to see whomever wins it all get a check for $1 million dollars which means the pool needs to be exactly $2.5 million since first place receives 40%. How great of a picture would that be? Reminds me of the old days with Final Boss holding up the $100k check in Vegas. (but 10x better)

I reckon Ace would be satisfied if Lethul gave him 20 grand for his double ankle surgery.  :lxthul:

i understand that i just guess I'm not a fan of this ranking system. Don't like that i can win games but go from a 42 to a 47 in champ. and the fact you have to play a lot to keep high ranks

Cause it would be so much better if we were just all Oynx and had nothing distinguishable to play for after that rank was achieved.

These are the types of things that made Halo so precious. In Daytona (h5), I was explaining to my fiancee how the events were nothing like that when I last competed (halo 2). Remember Cat5 cables going from hotel room to hotel room with CRTs setup and teams scrimming. People jumping rooms thursday/friday nights to play 4s or FFA early into the morning.

 

Now, it seemed very different. Ended up being in the hotel room playing on XBL with my teammates. That whole experience did a 180 to me. Still great getting to see everyone, but not the same.

Aha nice, finally had a good year and hopefully they improve upon it next year.

 

On topic, Roy is a great speaker and hopefully if this is his last game or season he stays with halo in some capacity. He could be a great analysist or even commentator.

Strongside's British accent is on point. He should have tried it out when he casted in the UK lol.
