Oh and for good measure, because of technical difficulties you shit on TO's that go out of there way to put events out for us (probably at a loss) when they don't even have to. Yes, there are technical and planning problems but a majority of these I have been have been on the 343 side. Production hasn't been smooth but this is the first event in a while without Lenox if I'm not mistaken. There are so many more popular games they could pick as TOs but god forbid you say anything remotely supportive

i agreed with a lot of your post but this is silly  :eyes:

 

don't pretend like TOs (especially ones hosting sanctioned events) are hosting events out of the kindness of their hearts

 

they are doing it to grow their business

 

 

also please stop shitting on MLG and adam, without those two things competitive halo wouldn't exist, period 

 

 

We are looking at this as an option, but TBC at this point.

Didn't that X-Game had issues with ingame audio to the players, that partially compromised the result of the event. But hey that happened a year so it means nothing.

 

Rumor has it a chair at an MLG event in 2015 was somewhat wobbly - only rumor though.

They made they choice years ago when they dropped us.

Clearly I'm not here to make friends and I'm gladly going to go back to being a lurker but its completely asinine to believe that competitive Halo wouldn't exist without Adam or MLG. I am very fond of the MLG times myself, I also get very nostalgic and apparently the general consensus is that because I don't post on this forum I must not have a rich history in Halo but I went from the MLG forums to The LAN Network and I randomly found out about this site because I wanted to know what "intel" meant in tweets. I've been here just as long as some members here. Both Gears and CoD esports grew naturally without any major (I say that with hesitance) funding. MLG and Halo are thought of in the same manner and Halo eSports growth is contributed because Sundance and t'other fella started MLG and needed the biggest game to grow the brand/business they built. At the time, Halo was just that. The biggest console game/rising to be with H2. If MLG didn't pick Halo up, I'm sure being one of the biggest games at the time, someone else would have or it would have grown organically by H3 like CoD and Gears. It was a case of right time, right branding and right game.

Are you guys at least going to cast the Online Qualifiers in English? There should be a spanish and an english stream IMHO. It would help the scene a lot and maybe people would finally stop thinking nobody plays Halo in LATAM. There are so many good teams that it should be a good tourney.

 

Also, please get some good casters for the Spanish stream. The two guys who casted last year were really bad and didn't have the best knowledge about the game.

They probably just accidentally reused the one Snipedown threw.

I never get this mindset, we run into issues with ESL and UGC and want improvement and like 1 guy says MLG then suddenly it's a scapegoat to ignore the issue.

 

Yes, MLG has a storied history and would probably do a great job running Halo again. So why is that so weird for some?

 

There's a lot that can be done to improve Halo spots right now, I'm tired of this "rebuild" mindset. We've been rebuilding for 2-3 years now, it's time to take it to another level. I don't care if it's ESL, MLG, Gfinity, or Larry's Gaming Club - I just want to see this great community and franchise to be taken to another level in the coming year. We seemed to have staggered, hope we find are strive.

If we go back and review every event, I'm sure we can find plenty. Or maybe we can get some chairs for the next Halo4 event.

What annoys me is that some people here comment like MLG can do no wrong.

We just need The Donald to sign an executive action stating 343 must use MLG as TO for the next event.

I'll end this waffling by saying I wholeheartedly agree with this but I want multiple TOs involved and I want the production to get better from everyone I was triggered because MLG is held so highly here and no other TOs are given a chance. Trust me, when I talk about CoD I still find it inexcusable that ESL hasn't paid Crimsix for a LAN last year but I agree, I just want Halo to succeed and the TOs and ESPECIALLY 343 need to pull there shit together because the game play this weekend just makes me thirsty for more.

Of course MLG can do wrong, there are plenty of examples from no chairs in 2012, blocking sponsor teams in 2006, etc. People want competence and MLG has the history, talent and the people to make it happen. It isn't that hard to see why people ask for them when basic issues continue to plague the community.

Find me one where we missed pro match-ups or where the audio was fucked, up to and including the broadcast sign off. Its one thing to have a few issues from time to time and a major fuck up is bound to happen, but we cant have the same mistakes crop up at every sanctioned event. We deserve better than that. I dont get the aversion to letting mlg handle some events.

The last time MLG handled Halo blue side had no game sound and communication, and they played an entire day with that issues tampering the result of the event.

People forgot the PayWall and the shitty 480p free stream.

there was no "someone else"

 

there were little local TOs but nothing like MLG in the console esport world

 

 

sure 'competitive' halo might exist in some form however it wouldn't be 1/100th as significant 

 

MLG built competitive halo from nothing into a national phenomenon

 

competitive halo exists because of MLG and vice versa

One time I saw a porn on the MLG Gameroom.

 

We get it, they aren't perfect. But bringing up issues from when Bush was President has nothing to do with anything in 2017.
