Halo World Championship 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

 

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

Dont play Arena if you think banning and protecting is difficult/boring. Plus thats for competitive players, just like it states in the description. Of course its not "noob friendly" 

 

There is a max 45 seconds in between games in general matchmaking.

 

I dont understand how you think its so difficult to under stand. You pick a character who has an ability, you make a class. You shoot people. You make it sound like putting attachments on your gun is rocket science. There is quick kill times of course. Just like there is in alot of games.

 

Im not a huge fan of the new call of dutys. But your post just makes no sense. Either way, back to the Halo talk.

Can we talk about how a non-Asian team got into the Asian Qualifier?

How did ESL let this happen?

Are there more teams currently faking their region that we don't know about?

Would really like to see an answer or response to this instead of it getting buried in the thread.....

 

On a side note it would have been epic if instead of being HLG in game if they would have won the tourney...won the Asian spot...came to the championship all costumed up as asian and then exposed them self after they lost by taking of their disguises....can't tell me that wouldn't have been hilarious bunch of dudes pop out of costumes and their are actual pale White Russians or some shit

Ive been debating in my head for a while now should the 16 best teams go to worlds or is it right what HWC is doing in that they arent necessarily inviting the best 16 teams but instead inviting the best teams in there own countries. 

 

I do like the idea of seeing german and asian teams etc compete and have a reason to compete and grind. But at the same time, if a group of HLG guys can breeze through the Asian qualifiers imagine what EG or AE could do. We could potentially see a 50-0 at world finals ......

I'm pretty sure esl is going to verify people's country of origin and stuff at HWC

 

The Asia bracket is a joke anyways, they really have no buisness being included, it would be better to have another NA or eu spot

Hecz is great. Reminds me of a younger version of my uncle. 

 

@@aa_Pregnant_Nun "ola's obj game needs work" - 2gre. lolol.

 

Cloud mightve been joking about playing through those scenarios but if i was reffing that match at a live event i would give the win to nV 100%. if they bitched i would get the TO and push that issue because that is ridiculous, lol

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

Like who?

Merk didnt do content regularly and isnt doesnt get the views they get.

Proofy? Not a content guy either

Clayster? Yea but they dropped him to grab both formal and crim

 

What bigger personalities u speak of?

Maniac has shown tremendous growth in the short time hes been doin yt compared to how long it took other OpTic members to get where hes currently at.

 

Been following cod and their teams since cod4 and yea gonna have to question what bigger content creators OpTic has actually dropped.

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.

None of those names minus clay has a big yt presence. Most of them there are non existent on yt.

Kap? Pls kap doesnt break 300 views on twitch on cod while when maniac streamed he would have 400 on halo 5 which is significantly less popular

The thing that's crazy to me about the vision series is when Hecz is talking to Optic Halo, and none of them actually look at Hecz in his eyes when they talk. Y'all grown ass men and you can't look your boss in the eye?

I saw and thought the exact same thing when I watched. Upmost respect for Hecz for his attitude about everything.

Anyone have a schedule for the games today?

 

Though I suppose the bigger question is what are they thinking running an event from tuesday to thursday, all big esport events are usually a weekend thing

 

I'm finding it really hard to find any information about this league

 

Edit: Today is not the day I thought it was

 

Still impossible to find any information about this league though

I asked this question a while ago but it was lost in the ether. Now it's slowed down a little I'll ask it again.

 

How important is a coach going to be during the Regionals and Finals? Is it a double edged sword for these new teams with little event experience and no coach? Is Towey's presence standing behind them going to be the difference between EG winning that game 5 against AE or losing it? Do CLG have a replacement for Royal 1? A calm head is going to make a huge difference.
