Halo World Championship 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

From GameStop earnings call:

 

"While diluted earnings per share was within our range, the quarter was challenging due to underperformance of Halo and Assassin's Creed late in the quarter and lack of sales acceleration from hardware price cuts during the quarter. There has been some discussion of Halo being a large full game download title, but our research indicates it performed at about the same level as other titles. Tony will reconcile that data in his remarks."

I feel like a lot of older console gamers (aka the Halo Fanbase) just don't get games thru gamestop anymore. I got H5 for like 40$ w/ GCU and past certificates.

 

Halo 5 is also the type of game where people will get digital just because they don't plan on selling it. Also, people may have not wanted to deal with the install and play it exactly at midnight.

 

Just a few thoughts

Could you make the case between roy, snipedown, lethul, royal 2, snakebite, frosty that eg and clg have 6 of the top 10 players in the game?

Royal2 best player in the game, lol.

Ninja had shots in him and Ogre2, he spins and no scopes the shit out of Ninja. Was very impressive.

Yeah, been saying for a year now that Royal 2 and Snakebite are the best duo in Halo.  Now they should be coming into their prime on a new, mobility friendly Halo game, and are finally getting help from a strong teammate in Frosty.  CLG should be the best team in the game.

Not watching the stream what happened lol

EG choked a Rig Strongholds game hard and they were just yelling at each other. Came back strong and won the series 2-1 though.

 

Basically they got to 97 with a huge lead and Lunch wanted to take Nest back and Roy/Snip3down wanted to take BR base. So after the game they were just discussing it.

Usually, Nest is the "go-to" territory to take when you already have Basement.

 

But, Liquid had really good Junction/Engine control to keep coverage of Open Field, and were doing a great job keeping the frags that spawn at Junction flying into Nest any time EG went there.

 

At one point, EG finally went for BR base, which was the right call at the time as Liquid over committed Nest side, but EG'd been too slow and Chig managed to stall the cap long enough and get a reset.

 

 

 

But I don't think either call was "right" or "wrong" in this case.

Yeah, either way they never really got their shit together to attempt to make a decent push to either point so it didn't matter. No one tried to slow things down, they just kept flying at points off spawn.

 

They played the next two games well though.

Honestly, I think they can very well be the best duo in H5. They are that good. They were pretty close in H2A IMO. And with Frosty doing his thing, they start really clicking and get more practice as a team, scary. That takes nothing away from roybox and all they've done, but you have to recognize and give credit when it is due.

 

I think they are probably the most explosive and enjoyable duo to watch, again IMO.
