"Hey guys, next time can you focus a little more on EU players? Way too much focus on NA. Thanks"

But when you do... dont be such a dickhole about it.  you much more likely to be heard that way and less likely to get blocked by everybody here.

Every rostermania season in recent memory, I've thought to myself 'this thread has peaked, there's no way anything could top this' and then the next rostermania appears and we hit a new high.

If you think Naded or Devon are anywhere near Ninja's level in Halo 5 . . . yikes. They are not on top teams in this game for a reason. 

 

As everyone else has shown in stats, and as can be seen watching his streams, he plays a key role on all his teams. His damage output is absurd, his communication is good. Sure, he can be inconsistent, but as Penguin himself said when he is on he is easily one of the top players in Halo 5. 

 

Nah. Naded is good but he's not on a top team b/c he's not as good a Ninja as you put it. It's b/c he tilts super hard. More than most. As for Dev well it's out there that him and Contra dont try online.

I don't understand the whole "don't try online thing".  Why on earth would you not try online?  The majority of important games are played online now.

We usually tend to stick on board with the team that's winning.  :simms:
All jokes aside, I skimmed through the broadcast and there definitely was more footage of NA over EU, but not 95%. I deliberately talked about the different play styles from each team and gave Jimbo in particular a lot of love for his slaying ability. I was criticizing NA's inability to close out games quickly when they had the lead. EU kept making some nice runs on the scoreboard, but ultimately fell short.
 
One issue that we have during the broadcast is that the two casters are in two completely different locations on two separate Xbox consoles. It's difficult to keep jumping from player to player without causing some confusion between the casters. Typically, we stay on board with whoever the game gives us at the start. From there, depending on how the game plays out, we'll occasionally switch. It's something that we definitely need to work on, though. Just keep in mind that I can't freely jump from person to person if the play-by-play caster is commentating one player in particular.
 
Halo tournaments are fueled by storylines and in this case, Danoxide and Bubu Dubu were able to knock El Town and Spartan off their throne. CBK were back to back 2v2 champions so being able to beat them was a huge story, at least in the context of our tournament. So once again, while I agree we could've given EU more attention, I believe overall, it was a great tournament and a great show for the viewers.

Yeah, idk either. That's just something I've heard more than once about Contra and Dev from multiple pros. Most recently Ninja said it on stream saying he would team with Contra but that he was worried about the whole rumor of him "not trying online".

9/10 of these arguments are really just banter dead as ya'll would be the chillest to kick it with at a live event.

I feel like Cratos and Shooter are pretty low for being on the #2 team and I would put Penguin over Ninja

eL ToWn is super underrated.

 

Here's some stats from Flag Games in nV's scrims right before Finals  (Hint: Look at the "Grabs" Column):
