HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

I want to post the other end of the spectrum for "Online to LAN - __ Improvement", but I can't think of a way to put it in a non-negative light. Any suggestions?

that's tough man, I think maybe framing it as "Best Online Performers" as opposed to "LAN under-performers" would be better, but neither is great you're right.

 

To clarify I'm obviously not saying those people actually are online warriors/LAN chokers or whatever, but that's how the stat might be interpreted

I'd rather they get the pro league right, instead of just do whatever. So hopefully the waiting is for good reason.

343 has shown a great ability to do many things right, and just as many things wrong.

While I do agree with you on the "take your time, get it right" statement, the complete radio silence after such a large and hopefully momentous event for Halo eSports almost makes me think that they had a basic framework for Pro League, but are STILL struggling to come up with a working game plan for this league.

 

PS: Hey Kroni!

So does that mean you four (you, unlegit/eco, stellur, spartan) are officially teaming together whether its under liquid or another org? Or are you guys still up in the air?

Hey all, didn't have a chance to post on the forums yesterday but now since Ace has officially been announced on OpTic I will give you a brief rundown of everything that has happened:

 

For the past week Unlegit, Ace, and I had been running games with Spartan/Stellur as our 4th. We played multiple days with both players so we could figure out the best fit for us. Now keep in mind whichever player we DIDN'T pick would immediately be going to OpTic as their 4th. Thus why when you guys say that they chose Ace over Spartan or any other player isn't necessarily correct.

 

Our decision would determine who they would team with and that's why we were taking our time to choose. Spartan and Stellur are extremely talented players and we didn't know who we could let walk away, plus we didn't want any regrets.

 

Fast forward to Friday night or Thursday night, we played with Stellur one last time before making our final decision. After we were done playing, we talked amongst ourselves and Unlegit/I thought everyone was on the same page until Ace told us at 4:00 A.M the same night that OpTic had asked him to run games and he was going to do it. You can understand our frustration because we all had wasted a week of our time playing, along with Stellur and Spartans time, just to be told that he was thinking about joining the team both of those players would have to resort to if we didn't pick them up. Not to mention he told us the night we wanted to finalize things.

 

So while he decided to play with them the next night, we played with us 4 (Spartan/Stellur/Unlegit/I) and we all found that we really enjoyed playing with each other. Ace was still uncertain of what he wanted to do until yesterday afternoon but I won't go into anymore details than that because that's not relevant nor does that need to be posted on the forums.

 

I hope this clear up any confusion you guys may have had. As of right now we are still TL, but nothing is set in stone because there is another org possibility in the near future. If you guys have any questions please feel free to ask, I'll do my best to give you a thought out response. Any admins you're more than welcome to edit this post to make it look more eye-appealing.

I think you 4 could be a potential killer team. 

 

Huge respect to you for not putting all personal details on the web, you are a good guy

that's tough man, I think maybe framing it as "Best Online Performers" as opposed to "LAN under-performers" would be better, but neither is great you're right.

 

To clarify I'm obviously not saying those people actually are online warriors/LAN chokers or whatever, but that's how the stat might be interpreted

I can't even use "Best Online Performers", because that'd be the players with the highest k/d, ka/d, etc online. Not the players on the other end of LAN difference spectrum.

"Online Warriors".....Really though I don't know how you'd do that without the negative connotation. Don't let that discourage you though because I'd definitely like to see the numbers.

Every time I see these stats it reminds me how much work Obj work lunchbox does, but EG really struggled on CTF matches.  Only 4 flag caps...

NV looked way better than they did last week, to be fair.  I was hoping EG would carry some momentum from the last series.
