Halo World Championship 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

Overdrive the 15th seed got a main stage match but not the #1 seed Allegiance? ok

Optic. 

 

Seriously though after Optic lost last night the stream dropped 7k viewers almost immediately, so I can see why it might be a better decision by MLG.

I'm just no incestious redneck that thinks shaming people cause of sexuality or using sexuality preferences or race is funny or acceptable

 

This all plays a huge part into why esports is still looked down upon.

"Incestuous redneck".... interesting generalization. I live in TN. Not redneck. Not incest. Not racist. Not homophobic. Occasionally use the word gay in a different context not relating to sexual preference. GG though.

Most players didn't want to risk a forfeit or cause a scene. Our game was already delayed an hour and a half. Since I'm a new player I didn't want negative attention complaining. Also, Ryanoob's got issues logging in so I posted that for him.

Assuming those audio issues are 100% legit (which I think it is) I would honestly do replays but I know Mlg wouldn't do it. Pretty ridiculous you have a 2.5mil tournaments being decided by audio issues when the audio/team chat is super important in the game

 

Was super hyped for the tournament but MLG ruined a lot of that for me. Really bad refs/TOs how does someone OK the audio issues and have a match play out? Seriously that's stupid

You use it when you're describing something merry or carefree?

The audio issues have definitely stained my opinion of the tourney. I'll be really disappointed if there's no replays although I highly doubt there will be.

I think the worst part about the situation is that... if you have audio issues reported... then confirmed... you probably should do a replay. It's almost like if you told me your brakes were sticking in your car and I claimed it's normal. Then you get injured. Then I issue a fix for all future cars but I do nothing to compensate you for your injury. It just doesn't make sense.

 

Discaimer: I'm not saying a replay would 100% benefit my team, I'm speaking my opinion for the other teams as well.

They won't and half the teams would be mad about Replays happening (hint: the ones who won)

Why are the acronyms RNG and ALG being used for Renegades and Allegiance in speech terms. It is no quicker to say those acronyms than the actual names.

We aren't saying them tho. We are typing them  :ghost:

I wouldn't really say using it in this way is shaming anyone. People are too sensitive these days. I mean colleges have safe zones for people who don't like what the real world has to say. I'll tell you right now, you can't be sheltered forever. There are going to be a million different opinions in the world and you are going to have to either deal with them or ignore them.

 

 

but back on topic: I think NV will be challenged in their next two matches. People are writing them off as the winners but it will be interesting to see what happens.

Go complain, I bet the other teams who had issues would join you in complaining.

Obviously the winning teams would be mad, suck it up and prove you're better on equal footing instead of taking a win when you had an unfair advantage.

If anything the winning teams, along with everyone else, should be mad at MLG for wasting everyone's time by providing a poor setup and not the teams that want a replay.

Nope. I have a couple gay friends who call everyone gay and other derogatory forms of the word. They do it in fun and we do it to them right back. It's practically asked of us. Believe it or not, not every gay person is offended by the word. I don't like when it is used in the wrong context but it's not unheard of for people to use it and not mean harm.

NV :wutface:

 

 

how you blow that game 1. Lost all momentum for the rest of the series. I really hope they pull through later.

 

 

Great to hear puckett back on the mic, but Arkanum was the weakest link in that Truth game.

 

Towards the end of the game when Mikwen had the last camo, he should have pushed up and just been a nuisance. Instead, he went back to his base, tried to stay alive for to long, and and ended up dying. 

 

I'm convinced it could have been a different story if they had held out!

I can't believe that MLG, who's only job is to host video game tournaments, can't seem to host a video game tournament.

 

Why no sound proof booth at the MLG arena? Why force players to use the worst mix amp on the market?

 

For many of these players, this is their livelihood. For God's sake, give them the basic equipment needed to perform.

The MLG Arena used to have soundproof booths. I believe what happened is the state of ohio said it was a fire hazard having them with the size of the arena being too small.

@@LethuL As a professional gamer currently playing in this tourney, if MLG asked you guys if you would replay your games and you knew they had a disadvantage due to their abysmal audio situation, would you do it?

 

It'd be easy for you to say no since A) wasn't your guys' fault and B)A lot of money is on the line.

 

In my opinion it is on MLG to make that call. I don't think they will which is disappointing from both a spectator and fans' perspective, but also for the teams that were at disadvantage.

i was going to say this, I played from red so I don't know but if every single team played and didn't say anything until losing then I don't know what to think. We had some minor issues and just told the refs or someone about them and they came over and fixed them in a few minutes. Even if it was only noticeable in game wouldn't someone just say something after game 1? Idk maybe I'm overthinking it but nobody saying anything until the end of the night on Twitter seems odd

The COD scene never openly complained about this stuff too much either. I think they sre inferior equipment but should be functioning for most part still. I do believe there is a problem but some pros are dragging it

"Redneck" is a slur for working class white people from the south. You're also generalizing about them being incestuous. It's 2016, man. I think you need some sensitivity training so that you won't contribute to escorts being looked down upon.
