HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

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

The FGC on a whole is better. I have a few friends who play/organize tournaments here. The best people you'll meet around a gaming scene where 50% of the game is trash talk lolol

Better games make better communities. ;)

Street Fighter V is an okay game a lot of the FGC hate it due to how shit Capcom has handled the game.

Can literally anybody tell me how "The Money Matches" works? I'm seriously trying to wrap my brain around it. Whats the business model? 

300-400 views on Youtube videos. 3500 likes on Facebook. The "Online Arena" where players can bet doesn't exist. The website is literally just a logo with links to their other channels which is regurgitated content from their other channels. Yet they can hire staff, constantly have big ticket give aways, "sanction" players, and more. 

 

I'm not suggesting they're a fraud or scam...I'm just genuinely curious what the hell is going on over there?

They're probably a fraud or a scam, and anyone that hires Valen usually shuts down in two to three months.

why?

 

the same people have already ran a successful lan and the only reason why G4G was a disaster was because of an XBL error that has since been patched

Has it not been being worked on for ages? Not like they're new to the scene...

 

Also, isn't betting on video games illegal in the United States?

Bitter games can make bitter communities too. But once you get past 10 pages of radar and Riptide angst, it's not all bad.

 

Better ingredients. Better people. Papa Mikwen.

they've had the twitter account for a year and the site goes live next month, things take time

 

they've spent a year promoting their business and it's clearly been a success, better to build hype than just launch with 0 hype

 

 

i have no idea tbh, apparently they've got something figured out

Their business model seems to be to have lots of money and then throw it in the air.

Imagine if 343i bothered doing this kind of stuff with arena weapons instead of the bland sandbox we currently have

 

 

(not by any means suggesting the void's tear should be put in arena)

What does this do?

DNS basically translates common website names to the complex IP addresses and/or true site names.

 

If it does that slowly, then websites will take longer to load up and games will have higher ping.

 

Google's DNS is consistently excellent so is commonly used.

I hate to be that guy, but can anyone update me on the current state of the Halo rosters? Obviously CLG is still the same, and I know about the new nV. What else is going on? Thanks in advance.

CLG - Same

nV - Snipedown, Mikwen, Pistola, Huke

E6 - Cratos, Stellur, Suspector, Bubu Dubu

TL - Spartan, Commonly, Penguin, Rayne (C9's League Spot)

EG - Roy, Lunchbox, (Ninja, VictoryX?)

ALG - Contra, Devon, (Shooter, Str8 Sick?)

No Org Yet - Eco, Naded, Danoxide, eL ToWn (TL's League Spot)

OpTic - Ace, APG, Maniac, (Falcated? Heinz? Cloud?)

 

Bolded the two that are confirmed rosters.  The others have not made official announcements and may change at a moment's notice.

Everyone got worse except for CLG, Liquid, and E6.
