HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

No its mostly the people complaining about what derails the thread that truly overall derails the thread.

I'll keep this in mind the next time the radar discussion is kicked out to the settings thread that no one reads.

Do we have any idea when they will announce info on the next season? 343/ESL have both proved that they are listening and willing to make changes. I have a good feeling about the next few months of halo.

Random OT but can anybody tell me if the astro tr mod kit is worth $60? Really want the full noise cancelling with the leather but not sure if I want to pay.

Quality of gaming isn't just about bandwidth. XBOX/Microsoft state that at minimum you need 1.5 Mbps download and only .5 Mbps upload to play online multiplayer. I would say the real minimum to play H5 without bandwidth issues is 5 Mpbs down and 3 Mbps upload.

 

Since it sounds like your bandwidth is fine next step is check your ping. The ping is the reaction time of your connection–how fast you get a response after you've sent out a request. A low ping means a more responsive connection, especially in applications where timing is everything like video games. Test your ping at: speedtest.net

 

Lastly is jitter. Jitter is pretty much the consistency of your ping. I will use myself as an example on this one. I live in downtown Chicago: I pay Comcast for the premium package so I get 90DL/30UL and a lot of gaming servers are located in or near Chicago so when I run speedtests my ping is usually 10-15 (very strong). The problem with living in Chicago is that there are 9 million people here. During high traffic times when millions of people are spamming the servers with data requests my ping, on average, is usually still strong but it could jump to 120-300 for a few seconds which causes the in game experience to deteriorate rapidly. 

 

Disclaimer: I'm not an engineer or networking specialist just someone who's been troubleshooting video game internet connections for 15 years.

>Vote for someone because they're on your team.

 

"This guy's just biased."

 

>Vote for someone who isn't on your team because they had a better story.

 

"This guy isn't loyal."

I don't know where the whole rumors of next season announcement came from, but I'd be willing to bet details will come with the roster lock (or the day after).

Probably just more the fact you felt the need to post about it.

I would never ever thought Fabe would drop Kimbo after how he has been doing this whole season.

 

I can clearly see, there is a movement in Eu to build team of 4 best Eu players. Team whose sole purpose is to take down Na teams at next worlds. Xmen was supposed to be that team last season but we all know how that ended up. Interesting enough, 2 top teams ended up disbanding and forming up one team made of arguably most individually skilled Eu players after the end od season 1. This is Xmen v2. And while it is clearly better then the first one, Eu players are doing the same mistake as before. They are literally getting rid of more objective minded players. First Buks, now Kimbo. In my eyes, Kimbo was Lethul of Fabe. Player filling every role needed for specific moment. I dunno.

 

This new Fabe will def dominate Eu but I am still not sold on the thought they will do better then Epsilon at Xgames/Worlds.

 

I dunno why ppl keep skipping on Buks after all they have done. They are obviously not the best slayers but they are doing something right when they are able to take games from Clg. I would like to see 20, 57, Septiq/Kimbo, Snipedrone/Chalkie. Ain't going to happen anytime soon obviously, just trying to put together something outside of Fabe. Anyway, it will be interesting to see how will things play out.

It was Street Fighter.  And speaking from an unbiased perspective, their communities are a shit load better than ours.
