HCS Pro League Fall 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

I never got into the whole GG thing, does anyone actually mean it? (Not calling out Snipedown's tweet btw). It's one of those things you just say but it's out of habit when you hear it. Like those awkward moments in drive-thru and the employee says "Have a great day" and you say "you too" but have no idea why you said it.

I mean it when I send it. If I'm in a really competitive back and forth FFA match that comes down to 1-2 kills I'll send a GG win or lose. Every now and then someone thinks I'm being a dick tho

So CoD4 remastered is how an "anniversary" type game should be done. Makes me sad. I bet it works at launch too.

Halo twitch is dead during the day when pros are either not streaming or playing MM with minimal effort. It is only during pro scrims late night that the Halo viewership gets decent. Not streaming scrims may benefit the pros in terms of focus, but interest will start to die if this becomes a regular thing. If streaming is such an issue because you want to prevent potential harassment from the twitch chat, close the chat box. No pro should feel obligated to interact with their viewers during practice and their is definitely nothing to hide strat wise, except the first 10 seconds of a game in Halo.

 

I remember Lethul giving other teams like EG and ALG before Worlds flak for not streaming scrims specifically for the reasons I said above. With that being said, Lethul has been one the most consistent streamers for Halo, I think people can give him a pass for one missed pro scrim stream.

I don't agree the one whole interest lost thing.. Rocket league, sf5, ssbm, etc all have usually a dead twitch but when there's a tournament the numbers a huge.

2016: the year where COD has oddball and halo doesn't 

This XP stream is literally taking just a huge shit on 343.

Our competitive community is not comparable to SF and SSBM is a different animal all together. Don't know much about Rocket League so I won't speak on it.

Yeah, hard to compare with having multiple TOs, consistent overall stream quality, and event details almost half a year in advance for a majority of events.

This. Streamers on Twitch, no matter what, are not enslaved to their chat. They do not have to interact with chat and can remove chat whenever they please. Streamers have total control over their stream and the chat does not dictate a thing. 

 

When it comes to last night, I guarantee you that if someone had turned on their stream with chat off or sub mode; no cam/mic; 2 minute stream delay; and just showed the gameplay with sound it would've done serious viewership numbers because the anticipation was so high. I know everyone in here would have tuned in and enjoyed the scrim regardless of whether or not TJ, Eric, or whoever was reading the chat in between matches. Chat interaction is not what matters, right? The gameplay is what we wanted to see. Quite frankly, those people who would've rage quit the stream because the streamer wasn't going to pay attention to their "booty banger" spam and "Why is Optic so bad?" questions would've been there for the wrong reasons anyway.

Last night got me thinking...I hope NV is legit and that there is more competition for CLG this season. Not only would it be good for spectators just enjoying competitive halo, but it might mean more savage Lethul. Savage Lethul is my second favorite Lethul, right behind streamer of scrims Lethul.

IW looks horrible - makes my decision to get Titanfall 2 easier.
