I cant argue this anymore. Why can we give 343/esl a pass for all their mistakes, but mlg is forever crucified for theirs.

 

Thank goodness we have dreamhack. Twice. That will be lit

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

Thanks Obama.

One time I saw a porn on the MLG Gameroom.

We get it, you love 2004 to 2012 but bringing up nostalgia from when Bush was President has nothing to do with anything in 2017 (where they have shat the bed with multiple other games and didn't take risks and other TOs did with H4 and H2A)

We are giving a pass on 343/ESL ?? Literally everyone here trash them everyday, we had full pages of people complaining about UGC. But let's not pretend that MLG is this holy figure that will save Halo

This mindset

 

>This is an issue and ESL / 343i should fix it

>Well MLG didn't have chairs in 2012

>Yea, but I'm trying to fix this issue

>Stop living in 2005 fam

I don't see why there isn't room for everyone to have a little piece of the Halo pie. We aren't calling for MLG total take over (though I am sure that some people would prefer that), but merely for them to be involved. Imagine events run by both? And a little competition between the TOs would be great since they would continue to try and one up each other forcing them to have everything perfect. When there is a monopoly on Halo right now (sorry UGC and PGL, plz keep holding events though), there isn't pressure to put on the best events possible knowing that you still have the future events.

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

 

Just to get everything up and out my blood. Competitive Halo would surely have had the growth it did. If little TOs were already hosting events, it was simply a matter of time. Halo used MLG just as much as MLG used Halo. It was in MLGs best interest to use Halo. MLG benefited from Halos population where the last stat I read was 1 million daily players in H3 peak. Halo benefited from a new, well organized, well branded and funded business providing high quality tournaments to match it's competitive multiplayer. Although half a decade late, Gears and CoD joined the scene during H3. It was simply a matter of MLG using the biggest game on the planet at the time and Halos multiplayer being reknown. I'm done for now though. Happy to take this to messaging if you want to discuss it further.

Super excited about this! I love watching scrims and casting with Clicked last year was a ton of fun, and I really want to improve my commentary as a whole. Excited to start bringing you all more community streams!

 

On the topic of HCS scrims, @@Infinity and I are planning on doing community casts on Twitch in the very near future. High quality streams with commentary, analysis, and more. It'll be a little bit more laid-back than other Halo streams, but I'm excited! :intensifies:

People forgets that MLG cucked the competition by making the players sign exclusivity contracts, FB/CARBON/Str8 were basically MLG employees , they literally couldn't play in other Leagues.

I actually didn't know that but I fucking hate ESL and that World eSports Committee thing they have going with exclusive deals with orgs in 2016. Just shitty for eSports in general.

They were other leagues that went out of business because MLG signed the players. Sure it was a lucrative deal for all of parties involved but it damaged the growth of Halo, we could have had LANs every month of different TOS.

i'm asking you, what other leagues?

 

i was around during that era and the only league i knew of was MLG

 

outside of that there were some small local TOs like NJ Halo that held tournies in dennys restaurants 

 

 

are you trolling? that last sentence makes me feel like i'm getting trolled

 

to be fair these other leagues didnt exist.

exactly, i know they didn't exist  ;)

 

and nah, it wasn't
