HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

I'm a PC scrub (I pretty much play single player games only when I use my PC) so please forgive my ignorance if 1. This isn't possible, or 2. It's been suggested earlier in the thread, but is it possible for the game to mandate using a controller if a PC player would want to play cross play matchmaking? Having talked with a lot of my friends, the thing that keeps them from playing Halo is NOT them wanting to use KBM, it's that none of them want to buy an Xbox. A $60 controller is a much friendlier barrier for entry than a $300 box you might only use for one game. In the ideal situation where controllers are mandated, I can't see the addition of a PC port hurting the player base in any way.

Even Xbox players don't use a controller 100% of the time. Some people just buy an adapter that lets them use their keyboards.

PRO MOD was a thing back them for CoD PC

Indeed, CoD2 competitive scene & CoD4 promod on PC were both very popular as an eSport. Tek9 >

 

What a joke competitive CoD has  become now on console & CWL, default pub settings, kill/score streaks & a bunch of ransom nonsense  :wutface:

 

Edit: Another teaser, from Josh this time

Ahh and yet people say that we only liked CoD4 because of nostalgia and its just like all of the other more recent games.

  1. There are people who have the internet and use it in Alabama.

So, life anecdote from the life of Audley that will tie into stuff relevant to the Halo scene.

 

I was at the gym with my girlfriend earlier, wearing my Liquid jersey (because it's a shirt that isn't loose-fitting). A couple of really young guys that were working out approached me and asked, "So, do you play for Liquid or something?"

 

I explained that, no, I'm just an analyst for the Halo team, and they said, "Ah, we just started following Halo a little bit ago after OpTic picked up a team." They then explained they were fans of CoD/LoL, and they're young YouTubers that film themselves in the gym from time to time.

 

 

So, takeaways:

  • Yes, OpTic really does bring new fans to our particular scene.
  • There are people who have the internet and use it in Alabama.
  • OpTic / CoD players' vlogging and gym-related stuff resonates strongly with a young crowd and inspires them to do the same.
  • #GreenWall
  • I am human garbage.
...so...

 

what are you lifting bro?

Aren't a majority of the Halo fanbase casual gamers? If so couldn't they keep the casual game / story on the console (so as to not lose console sales) and make a competitive game (f2p or whatever works best) on PC?

I suck with kbm, yet i think if Halo would switch to pc, it would be a good thing for the franchise. With the support Halo has right now (and if it would switch to different model) it would grow much faster then it does right now. I also think in Pc market, there is a plenty space for game like Halo. I would even say there is an empty space to be filled with another esports shooter (yeah I know, Overwatch). However I don't think it will happen though as Halo is one of the few things worth buying xbox for.

Yup. Microsoft released a ton of old gamertags that were inactive that never got moved to the Xbox 360. If you were really on top of it, you got a new GT like Water, Naughty (best one IMO), Etc. You'll see a lot of simple one word gamertags out there and active now.

 

EDIT - This was supposed to be a quote to @@BanditOH. Didn't work for some reason.

Genuinely curious since I never watch CoD, how different are the settings from pubs? The argumentsame we've had in here tend to revolve around retaining or changing pub settings for comp, so I'm curious as to how CoD handles it.

That's a lie we keep feeding to each other since 2007 ha

GTA V pc has a system that makes it so people who use auto aim can only play against other people who use auto aim, maybe Halo on pc could do something similar?

Either way, a pc port is a must imo, if done correctly it would do wonders for the growth of the game. Also, I really want to get rid of my xbox.

Apart from differences regarding timers in general, I thought the biggest contrast was just enabling specialist drafts & bans/protects....
