HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

Is CS more popular than LoL? I don't follow either.

 

LoL gets broadcast on national television in China and Korea, and its viewership for Worlds is in the 8 digits. (10+ million).

 

CounterStrike has 1.5 million viewers for this tourney.

 

 

CSGO is continuously showing growth, but its lack of Asian presence cripples it when it comes to comparing vs LoL and DotA2.

 

Asian countries either don't play shooters or stick to CrossFire, their Free-to-Play version of CS.

Reach really was the best UI in Halo.

 

But god dammit, 5 is a MASSIVE step up from the trading cards we had in 4. The main menu critiques were just petty as well, not well thought out. IMO 343 should absolutely focus on gameplay before UI, and I feel like that's what they did with Halo 5 after they got a working UI, hopefully 6 will be better.

 

Sure Reach's UI was amazing, but what about the gameplay?

 

I agree. But I'm about to channel my inner Cursed Lemon for a minute, why do we need to settle? The original concept art was pretty awesome, a clear extension of the excellent features and functionality of Reach.

However, this belongs in another thread, so I'll leave it at that.

Ah yeah, that picture always makes me sad :(

 

I just always figured that the department that genius belonged to got pushed to the back during development.

 

But good point actually, different topic for a different thread  :holmes:

Totally forgot there were medals in beta pgce. Crap why do we not have those. I don't give a damn checking those online, i want to have them in game and let ppl check my awesome single perfection medal.

 

Edit: I see, those are concepts. Still, I like this more, than the final design (wich is still nice)

well I tried to tell him like 4 times how to possibly solve this, he never said if he tested my solution or anything, I foresee his ISP not being able to see anything. I had the same issue with Halo 5, I only got disconnected from the H5 servers, though parties or discord would stay online.

 

It is an issue with IPv6 packages if you force your Xbox to go on IPv4 only it should solve it, it did it for me

So what you're saying is let's get a good Optic Halo team to play at and advertise Halo in China and Korea.

This game's banning system needs reworked. I just sat through a 1v4 so I didn't get banned for quitting. Finished the game, was told it disconnected and then I was banned, for 3 hours. Wat.

It's not the World Championship, just the finals for the pro league's S1.  Although while H5 is more fun to watch, the CoD production value is better.  Neither hold a candle to CSGO though.

You're comparing the season 1 playoffs of cod to the $2.5 million halo world championship? Sigh

I really wish orgs like Luminosity and TSM pick up Halo teams.

 

Seeing these CoD numbers though I think they'll be content w/ only CoD :/

 

I'm not a hater, I respect CoD, and I'm not unrealistic, I know it's bigger but I truly don't think BLOPS3 is deserving of this many viewers. I even liked AW better... but at the end of the day, I hope Che and crew are watching and they can learn a LOT from CWL production, which is seriously incredible.

We almost signed with luminosity we just didn't see eye to eye on some things. Steve is a great guy and I'm glad his orgs seeing success!

So what was the reason for Commonly leaving RNG the first time around when Stellur replaced him? 

 

Did RNG drop Commonly or did he leave to take the EG offer?

Awesome to hear they were at least interested. I hope teams reach out to Luminosity and try to sign with them.

 

@@CyReN @@Symbolic is the RNG coach, can he get VIP? Or are coaches not VIP, could have sworn they were.

So is breakout completely disregarded now? I think 1 life game modes is entertaining viewer wise....

Obviously right now its needs a complete overhaul in hows its played but I think a SND esque for halo could attract more viewers

 

just my opinion
