HCS Pro League Fall 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

Clete retired.

 

Liquid weren't allowed a sub. Liquid were told if Assault did not play, whomever they used a sub for the week would be locked in as their fourth.

 

So even though Clete was retiring (for more than just one season), he wasn't given the same treatment as precedent from Naded where Optic were still (as far as I know) allowed to make a change mid season (they didn't).

 

Stellur has no intention of retiring, so the E6 situation does not match either precedent ruling.

Thanks for the insight. The way the commentators presented it at the time was that Dan was subbing for Assault until the transfer period where Assault would be officially dropped for Danoxide. And as I said in the post just prior, I don't think E6 should've been granted a sub, I just don't think they should get crucified for asking for one.

 

edit: my bad for double posting/not multiquoting

Realized in my last semester of university that I didn't want to go into Law Enforcement. Not that I dont admire police and the work that they do, I just dont feel it was the path I wanted to follow at that time in my life. I would have LOVED to go into Counter Terrorism Financing, which was one of my focuses...but you  need military or career experience which I lacked both of and had no desire to pursue once I made my decision.

 

As for the gaming? My x girlfriends mother knew the HR director to an arcade studio, set up a meet and greet for networking purposes, and it was all history. I'm 50 days away from my second World Championship for the game Big Buck HD (You know, that bar game where you're hunting animals?) that I've been the team lead on, I get to travel all over the US for video games (TwitchCon next week), and I'm currently sitting at my desk in a Final Boss hoodie and gym shorts.

 

Oh, and I get to come to Beyond and post dank memes during my work day.

 

All in all, I'm pretty okay with how things played out.

 

Do you still work at CLG? Curious on what went down when they cut the Halo team.

HCS shouldn't allow LOL to use that team name, very unprofessional and immature

I agree. If they were playing as BtH they'd probably have a little underdog fanbase behind them. As LOL they just look like a team that's already given up and is ready to get relegated. "Huhuh, Optic dropped us. What should we call our team now?" "Who cares, huhuhuh." (yes, imagine that in Beavis and Butthead voices)

 

It's like those immature players who put "shaded" in their team name when someone leaves them for a better offer.

Everytime I see someone like snip3down have perfect headshot registration I get triggered. This is the shit I deal with.

I have 50 down and 50 up internet with no connection or ping problems for any other games, but when it comes to Halo it's almost unplayable half the time. 343 needs to make this a priority. Heavy aiming and bad hit reg ruins gameplay. Not to mention lack of LAN means you can't even play the game "how it was intended"

Did OpTic Scrim against nV recently? If so, what was the result? Working on a video, and I remember hearing something about a scrim, but I wasn't able to watch it.

Do you still work at CLG? Curious on what went down when they cut the Halo team.

 

 

Yes I'm still technically a contributing writer for CLG, but I dont actually do any work for CLG. The whole thing seemed rather...ill thought out. Essentially I was brought on board with a team of about six other writers to consistently push content for CLG as they were about to move into a Media frenzy. I went through two stages of interviews, submitted samples, wrote on a subject of their choosing with no time to prepare prior, and after had to do an in depth analysis of said piece. We got set up on Trello, Skype groups, and began making our pitches. My piece was the first to be selected, and..I think it was the only one to be published. 

 

Communication between the writers and the organization fell apart, and ultimately it just died down to nothing. Neither the Trello or the Skype group have any activity from the organization or the writers anymore. There was no discussion, it just...died down. They were great to work for, always punctual, and fun folks, it just...stopped, for everybody...and nobody really knows why. 

 

TL;DR If they reached out to me and asked for a piece, I'd gladly write it.

This has to be just based on Pro League and legitimately nothing else, right?

Of course since pro league is all we have for now. Eg deserves to be one and optic second.

Yeah I started clipping a bunch of this kinda stuff just so I could confirm that I wasn't going insane. I've only got 30/10, but it doesn't sound like better download/upload speeds will help much then.

If the servers/aiming issue as well as the whole matchmaking system not functioning properly issue aren't addressed, how much longer are people realistically going to play h5?

There are definitely aiming issues with this game, but none of those looked like headshots to me. Maybe my eyesight is going bad in my old age.

Not just headshots half the clips are just shots plain out not registering

It did kind of look like you were missing. Perhaps you're used to the servers where you have more bullet magnetism than these clips so it felt to you as if those shots should have registered?

Honestly how many more weeks can they delay the EU League? Don't they have time constraints?

 

I want to see @@TheSimms cast again.

I had my HCS EU Pro league preview actually ready on time, but looks like it'll have to wait. Any time I should release it for best performance?
