HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Hey. Not sure if this is the right place but I just started playing Halo and watching the pros again after following MLG for Halo 3. 

 

I watched the X Games and noticed they use ARs and stuff. Was that just for X Games or is that how the game is played now? Thanks.

Has the natural social media progression allowed for "trigger troll" to be coined as a phrase yet? if not, I'm calling it here.

TLDR: Smaller player pool = Lower skill ceiling

 

Not necessarily since it's not like women are relegated to only playing themselves online or anything like that. I'm sure environment plays a factor but I think it's a bit much to think that environment is the sole reason for women being behind when it comes to pro gaming. There's definitely still physical differences on a small scale that can cause separation; that difference isn't universal but it's not elitist to recognize observed differences.

Regarding the ESL and Team YouPorn in Halo;

 

ESL runs leagues with major presenting sponsors like Intel and Xbox. HCS is run by 343 and Xbox. The other teams in the league have big underwriters. These brands do not and will not align with pornographic content in any alluded or clever form. The porn sponsors are a cool way for some content creators, like Woody/PKA for instance, who can assess what money they're getting from a porn company vs. what they could otherwise get from bigger brands that would prohibit it.

 

Already have more money in halo then ever before, just won't happen. Perhaps could be a way for a guy like Kampy, or someone like Naded if he retires from active competition, to stay sponsored and do content if they leave orgs and brand themselves individually.

I agree, I believe eSports should take as many sponsors as they can.

 

I mean, they sponsor a womens CS:GO team, not many Orgs do that.

 

Obviously it is not as easy as get all the sponsors you can because something like YP would only chase off other sponsors

Please tell me you're joking, and you don't really want a Halo YP team.

why would i be joking? orgs enable players to chase their dreams

 

 

ESL doesn't own esports lol, i'm sure YP is going to continue to operate and they will create a new "SFW" org

Thorin is a lad

I wish Halo had a Thorin ;c

 

Despite being a complete ass he's done so much to legitimize the talent in CSGO.
