Halo World Championship 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

I honestly can't follow this game. They're flying all over the place. How they hell do you hit anyone when they're jumping about and running on walls like fucking Prince of Persia.

 

I've played BO3 for a few hours at my cousins. I honestly don't get it either. I sat in pregame menus for what had to be 30-60 minutes while people customizing loadouts, attachments, specialists, banning, and whatever other bullshit was going on. I managed to stay awake long enough to enter the game. Then I got to experience the gameplay and I remembered why I've always hated this series. Dying in 0.1 seconds while people catch you from behind or the side. Add a bunch of "CoD Abilities" and it's just, uhh. I honestly don't get how people think this game is "noob friendly" or "pickup and play" game either. There is so much bullshit before you even get into a match. If I want to play Halo, I pick up the game and enter a match. There isn't a ton to know just to start a match. Not a bunch of pregame menu bullshit. Simple. /rant

I've updated the spreadsheet in my signature.

Lifestyle is now a F/A. Overdrive removed and all members are F/A.

 

I also added a worksheet/tab for Regionals that shows what teams are in which Groups.

 

group D is the group of death right now. Very competitive group.

Just caught up on the new Optic "Vision" video. Seems like Hecz has really noticed how under-performing Optic Halo has been and is really on their ass. Threatening replacing players and booting them out of a mansion and the optic fame would be scary as hell

 

Flame and maniac wont get booted off OpTic

Maybe the halo team but just like Mboze they will still be apart of OpTic

How are the seeds put in groups?

 

According to Audley from earlier in this thread when I was asking about it (HERE);

 

Group A: 1, 8, 9, 16

Group B: 2, 7, 10, 15

Group C: 3, 6, 11, 14

Group D: 4, 5, 12, 13

 

You can see the current groups and team ranks in the Regional Tab of the Excel workbook.

 

Group D would have Renegades, Liquid, Winterfox, Severance

 

Also, the matches for Group play if I remember is that teams in slot 1 randomly play 1 of the other 3 teams in the Group. The remaining 2 teams play each other. After that Team in slot 1 plays at random one of the other two teams. The remaining two teams play each other. And I think then they play the last team they didn't already match against. So 3 series of Bo3. Top 2 teams in each Group advance.

Maybe it's the editing, but that came off as a bunch of excuses from Flame and Maniac.  As some people have posted before, scrims aren't the same as matches so even if you're beating Top8 teams in scrims, it doesn't matter.  Frankly, I think they're performing as expected based on how long they've played together, their commitment, and their individual skill at H5.

I disagree. They really aren't very big personalities in the grand scheme of things. If they can hang on a bit longer and get to the size following that lets say, Mboze has, then I think they would be able to squeak on as personalities.

 

Optic has dropped way bigger dudes than flame and maniac

Both of them get more views than Mboze, though. And Maniac has been doing this for less than a year I think. Optic fans really love him.

Thats cool, but lets not pretend that they are bulletproof here, like I said before way bigger personalities have been given the boot before. Clayster, Proofy, JKap, Parasite, etc.

 

 

Optic could literally pickup Supertoaster95 tomorrow and juice him to maniacs level right now in 6 months, as long as they are on the official roster they get the fans, unless they are complete idiots.

Just different people like different things. My buddy LOVES making classes in CoD. Literally between almost every game he'll sit there and tweak his classes and try different things, and when he ain't doing that he's buying cases when he gets 10 crypto points and puts his new skins on. Some people don't like playing games they like fiddling. Meanwhile I make a mobile class, a long range class, and an S&D class and I don't change it all night when im over there...u should see his face he almost rages from it lol.

Maniac just uploaded a video about OpTic Halo

 

 

Summary 

-Says that he cares about halo

-Says they do try and the people saying they don't are wrong

-Says he would stop playing if he thought he was a team detriment

-Says he doesn't like the BO3 bracket style

-Says people too often say "they don't practice enough", says they are one of the most practiced teams

-Says they want to do things privately in relation to what is going on following gameplays/streaming

-Says he's disappointed to not make X-Games, would rather have the medal than cash from the Championship

-Says he doesn't feel like he makes enough plays as he has in past halos, says his whole team needs to do more of it 

-Clete flew home hence no practice tonight

-Most serious he's ever taken Halo

-Reiterates that they are putting in effort

Clete doesn't have nearly the fan base maniac and Flame do. They create content and that makes them valuable to the brand regardless of how they do competitively. Flame I think is more secure than Maniac because he's got that Redbull can, but I do t see either of them leaving he brand as long as they keep pumping out content people want to watch.

without giving any credit to Maniacs youtube grind or personality? I don't think so. Maniac took advantage of an opportunity and worked hard for his views. Lets not take away from that.

Keep it up Maniac. People love to live in ignorance. Anyone who has visited Halo Tracker or Gamebattles knows that Optic is one of the most practiced teams.

 

Appreciate the video, but oftentimes it is better to just ignore the shit people say.

When OpTic Halo's main fanbase isn't even Halo fans issues like that can arise
